The job assignment for Tate Studio Architects was to create a trailhead facility for a large private trail system in the desert landscape of Scottsdale, Arizona. The team used the setting as design inspiration.
Drawing inspiration from a Southwestern color palette, this master bedroom is washed in desert-toned neutrals with a pop of bright turquoise. Southwestern artwork is framed above the pale wood bed with matching nightstands.
With stunning Tuscon, Ariz., views, this outdoor dining space takes a note from its desert landscape. The simple centerpiece combines cacti in terracotta plants and a woven tray. Turquoise chairs and bright orange table linens bring in southwestern inspiration.
You'll want to peek inside this desert gem, a vacation home just outside the Joshua Tree National Park. The designer used the surrounding landscape as her aesthetic inspiration, resulting in spaces just as open, simple and beautiful as the location.
Located at the base of the McDowell Mountains, The Country Club at DC Ranch was renovated by PHX Architecture. The inspiration was to return the space to its roots, reflecting its history as a desert camp cattle ranch in the early 1900s.
When the homeowner, a professional artist, moved into this home, the backyard space was visually unappealing and dysfunctional, so designers gave the yard a new look, maximizing the small space with sectional seating areas on both the hardscape and desert lounge areas, giving the homeowner a blank canvas to foster her creative inspiration.
