A fantastic Southwestern style home in Santa Fe that overlooks the mountains and displays the owner's collections perfectly.
Before signing onto the job, the designers at Violante & Rochford spent a lot of time with their client, learning about their passions and their collections. When they did accept the job, their design took into account the owner’s massive collections and their passion for bold colors and textiles.
The home’s design needed to leave space to display new pieces the owners might collect in the future, so each room is spacious and airy, displaying their collections without looking cluttered.
A local craftsman, Christopher Thayer, was brought in to design and build an utterly unique dining table. See if you can spot some of the 20 hidden features of the table later in this gallery. Perhaps the most exciting part of the dining table is the secret dessert holder that can rise out of the table to surprise guests!
This design is bold, bright, and unafraid to embrace Southwestern design and all the patterns that go with it. It has architectural details like beautiful exposed beams across the cathedral ceilings, and wooden inlays in the archways between each room.
We hope you’ll enjoy this fantastic design, created for a family that is certainly not afraid of color!
One of the spacious bedrooms in the home has softly textured plaster walls and light beige carpet. The beautiful wood grain of the four-post bed is the crown jewel of this bedroom. Pale green armchairs with embroidered throw pillows make up the sitting room. A quilt hangs on the wall to the left of the bed of Helmii.
A shot into the dining room from the living room, showing the tile meeting the dark hardwood flooring. The custom-made dining table is surrounded by chairs upholstered in heather-gray. Beneath the table is a rug in deep navy and red-orange. On the back wall is an enormous hand-crafted quilt.
A closer look at the hand-crafted dining table, showcasing the sheer attention to detail put into this masterpiece. This table hides 20 details for guests and the owners to puzzle out.
The family room is in an even bolder color and pattern scheme than the rest of the home, with a bright red-pink sofa, red and white patterned chairs, and a large quilt hanging above the sofa. The wooden coffee table has small, but colorful details.
The home office has a beautiful hardwood desk with a swirling wood grain and an open raised-hearth fireplace adjacent to the window.
Another view of the living room, showing the cathedral ceilings that boast a network of thick wooden beams. A stately screened stone fireplace takes center stage between two antique wall sconces. Sliding glass doors lead outside to a terrace that overlooks the mountains.
A final look at the home’s living room, focusing on the two striped sofas. A collection of paintings are hung in a collage on the wall. The home also features solid wood double doors throughout.
