Phoenix Home & Garden, November 1989
After crossing a stone bridge spanning a deep arroyo, guests to the home are drawn to the shaded archway entry court, a cool contrast to the surrounding desert.
Setting the mood for a peaceful retreat are antique “santos” offering welcome and, perhaps, benediction.
A tall cacti echoes the ceiling height and adds a sense of drama, while the antique wood bench and table and rebar chair repeat the materials in the massive entry doors, while still offering an intimate seating area.
The French fabric, through its pattern and colors, complements the desert landscape and Moroccan style of the home.
Designers pictured: Jeninifer Beresfor, Casa el Encanto, and Karen Rapp, Karen Rapp Interiors.
