A little sneak peek into the landscape and pool progress at our black and white custom home in Gilbert. We'll be hosting an open house, along with @cambriaquartz, on Friday October 6th. DM us for details. You'll see this exterior totally transformed in the next two weeks by @elitelandscapesandstone and @freedompoolsaz . Stay tuned. @einteriors.design

This view was taken from our 25-foot multi-sliding exterior pocket door. It gives you a good view of the openness of this home and floor plan. There are 3 decorative “X” ceilings spaced evenly throughout the great room and kitchen. The ceilings are 14 feet to the peak and 12 feet to the soffit. All of the kitchen cabinetry ranges from 9 to 10 feet tall. Wood flooring is installed all throughout the home and all of the interior doors and windows are painted dark charcoal gray to match the black/white exterior.

One of our favorite features in this master bedroom is the Basalt stone fireplace surround selected by our interior designer @einteriors.design. The black wood beams in the ceiling continue our black/white theme throughout this custom home. Another fun feature is the decorative bookcase on either side of the fireplace inspired by @kandqinteriors. Photography by @roehnerryan and @highresmedia.
One of my very favorite cars, the #Toyota#2000GT . This one, the first of three I've been fortunate enough to shoot, was owned by @donrose_ and was being taken care of by @the_finishing_touch_body_shop in #FountainHills#Arizona at the time I shot it. It was the first time I'd seen one in person but had loved them for a long time before that. I was so impressed by it in the flesh and it only made me love it more.
I believe a courtyard should be a trail of happiness not just a space for entering and exiting a home. This townhouse courtyard is only 8’ wide by 20’ long and look at the lush magic we are creating. A small footprint is easy to maintain with drips and desert adapted plants bloom year round. A lush courtyard like this increases your curb appeal and value of your home. I believe you can live richly in any size space!
Spring is just around the corner here in Arizona. If you are seeking help for your little slice of heaven, we are accepting landscape consultations for installs in February and March. Bloom on baby!

After spending a long time last night removing about 20 thorns from my bike tires, fixing the flats, and leaving everything ready for a crazy big ride today, I woke up at 3:30am to find that both tires were flat again and I was out of patches and spare tubes. It was a major let down, especially since there was a huge rain and thunderstorm outside, rare for the desert, and all I wanted in that sleepy pre-dawn moment was to be riding my bike against the strong wind and rain into the desert towards a mountain that's long been in my sights. That will have to wait for another time. But fast forwarding to the afternoon after fixing my bike, I still wanted to get out on a shorter ride, so I went out with the idea of making it to the mountains to the north or the next town over, maybe both. I almost couldn't make it all the way due to a road with crazy drivers and no shoulders, but I managed to sneak and find my way through some high end neighborhoods with gorgeous mountain views and crazy roads like this. For the way back I took the shoulder on the highway that cuts across the open desert. With the darkness and everyone else inside their cars speeding by and making roaring sounds I felt like I was the only person there, so I had fun screaming exuberant things into the night. 50 miles and 4 hours later (although it felt a lot longer) I was back home. I love going out with an open or half thought through idea or plan, you never know what you're going to find or experience out there but it's so often something much more than you could have imagined. It's such a thrill to go out knowing this but not knowing what's going to happen between then and when you eventually make it back home.
