Updating a Southwest Themed Home

Past client Katy called us to help update her home. The areas of focus were the family room, kitchen and re-tiling the entire home.

Katy has tons of beautiful Southwest art and artifacts displayed throughout her home. So we opted for more neutral colors to showcase her collections.

Kitchen Updates

  • Refaced the oak cabinets in alder with a rich warm cherry finish and shaker door style; added complimenting cabinet hardware
  • Replaced Corian counters with Cambria quartz
  • New granite composite sink and bronze faucet
  • New beige travertine backsplash in a mini Versailles pattern
  • Replaced old fluorescent lighting with recessed light fixtures
  • Painted the kitchen a single neutral warm color to visually raise the ceiling height

Other Updates

  • Replaced the tile throughout the entire house. New tile was installed on the diagonal to visually enlarge the space.
  • New natural woven shades in kitchen and family room
  • New mesquite table top with metal base and four alder chairs with a cheerful southwestern stripe fabric
  • New neutral warm paint color
  • Reupholstered a chair in faux leather

Fireplace Make-Over

The existing fireplace surround did nothing to compliment the artwork and artifacts. We added stacked stone to give it a Southwest feel, and for visual interest and texture. We kept the color light in order to show off the art, including her flute collection. The re-shaped hearth is covered with three travertine slabs. A new alder mantle in a rich warm cherry finish tops it all off.

Because of everything Interior Expressions offers, and the multitude of options they offer for everything, it is like running all over town – without running all over town. I’m not a professional at this and if you make a decorating mistake, be it one paint color or one wrong fabric, it’s more expensive to correct a mistake than it is to get it right and I knew if we used a professional, it would be right. We have to get it right the first time. I don’t mean to brag but we love what we’ve done. Everything is what we wanted.

I appreciate IE's Willingness to work in stages over time.

Workmen who had good ideas to contribute, and IE provided that. They were timely and cleaned the area without leaving a mess. I highly recommend them. It's been a great experience.

Living in Manhattan and buying a home in Tucson, we entered with trepidation and more than a little concern. IE was our salvation. I'm absolutely certain if we hadn't found you we would still be struggling with our "Tucson project". Everything was more than satisfactory and all due dates were met. Amazing!

The contractors that IE recommended to work with were great-very professional.and careful craftsmen. Their materials are very good quality and fit beautifully with our other furnishings.
