    Private Home Designs

Instead of just “Southwest”, I call this style Med-Mex…Mediterranean meets Mexico, an eclectic mix from many cultures creating an inviting welcome, inspired by favorite places and journeys.

The home was built on acreage in the Sonoran Desert, so all kinds of wildlife was to be expected, but the and rabbits dug and ate all the greenhouse flowers on the patio. A low stone wall was added and wrought iron railings and gate were the perfect touch. When I told the builder I needed an old weathered beam for the top of the gate, he brought me a beam from his ranch that was used as a mounting block for horseback riders, perfect!
