This sunny sanctuary located in Scottsdale, Arizona, recently completed in October 2018, was designed with the intention of being a getaway from the client’s original home in the Pacific Northwest during the rainy winter season. Allison Smith Design took this home and transformed it to create a timeless expression of modern artisan design.
Right off the bat, Allison and our client both agreed that the beautiful Arizona desert surroundings should be implemented into the design of this home. A newly opened kitchen and the install of large sliding glass doors supply an abundance of natural light into the great room creating a larger connection to the outdoor living space. Allison and our client decided on a clean color palette with natural hues pulled from the surrounding Arizona landscape.
The custom, handmade furniture featuring mixed woods, metals & concrete textures gives this home a true sense of artistry. Vibrant artwork and accessories warm up the industrial materials used as the foundation of the design.
We invite you to explore the photo gallery to see this beautiful project for yourself. Please let us know if you would like to inquire further about this project.
San Miguel de Allende — A Business Trip for the Books
- Wednesday, 26 July 2017 15:07
If you keep up on our blogs, you’ve seen that one of our projects this year is a contemporary hacienda in Cabo San Lucas. If you haven’t yet seen our progress post about it, here’s the link — https://allisonsmithdesign.com/casa-oasis/
Now that the home is nearing the end of construction, Allison and a senior project manager were able to travel to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico to shop for furnishings for Casa Oasis.
We had done a fair amount of research regarding stores in San Miguel, but the goal we had set for the trip was to find hidden gems in the city, and we did just that.
The home in Cabo San Lucas is an interesting juxtaposition between Pacific Northwest sophistication – which features some contemporary features – and local artisan craft. The furnishings in the home will reflect that.
In an attempt to not reveal too much (trust me when I say you’ll see plenty of photos of the home once it’s finished)… I’ll simply share more photos from the trip. San Miguel is such a beautiful city… with architecture, design, and food to gawk at for days…
This business trip was certainly one for the books.
Stay tuned to see photos of the fully furnished Casa Oasis.
Adios for now!
