The Parade of Homes!

It comes around every year, the Haciendas Parade of Homes! It’s an exciting time for the entire Home Building industry in Santa Fe, as we all come together to celebrate all the amazing work we collaborate on throughout the year. Generous homeowners open their doors to the public to enjoy the craftsmanship and thought that go into making their homes. The last weekend of the event was, August 19-21 and it had an amazing turnout!

With over two dozen homes open during the celebration, we know all the visitors left bursting with inspiration by the end of the weekend.

Be sure to take a look at the digital magazine!


We are so excited to share our recent home renovations this year during the Parade! Huge thank you to Woods Design Builders for the work they put in on our home, as well as congratulations on the awards they won this year, especially Best Craftsmanship AND Best Remodel on our very own home! We’re honored to collaborate with such an amazing team in so many beautiful settings.

Bringing the Outdoors In

We love nature. Its beauty inspires us in our lives and our work. There are so many ways we incorporate nature into our work, from earth-toned palettes to showcasing an interesting piece of driftwood. But one of our favorite ways is simply to create space in our interiors for living plants. They bring happiness into any room, as well as provide health benefits! They absorb carbon dioxide and pollutants like benzene and formaldehyde while emitting clean oxygen into the air. Even NASA uses plants in the International Space Station!

Incorporating live plants into your space is a very simple way to elevate your house and give it a more homey feel. As many of you know, Michael is on the Board of Directors at the Santa Fe Botanical Gardens and we would suggest starting there to get inspiration for both the interior and exterior spaces in your home. They have an extensive garden that is just a treat to visit, as well as a great resource when planning what kinds of plants you may want in and around your home. Be sure to tell them we sent you!

The Home Stretch

Our home on East Alameda is just three weeks to completion and move-in day…we are finally in the home stretch of this major transformation to our home. This process has been wonderful, but we are excited to begin decorating!

Our envision of museum white walls, a light and airy palette for our floors, cabinetry that is contemporary, but with a nod to the past, chartreuse for the living room, and a blend of our Spanish and Swedish antique furniture collection with transitional and vintage upholstery….is all coming true!

We hope you enjoy these video clips (below)! For more videos, visit our YouTube channel.
