Charisse Colbert is the interior designer of CMC Design Studio in Cave Greek , Arizona.
On a private lot surrounded by the desert and mountain views, this ranch style home is a second residence for a Canadian couple and their dogs. Simple design inspired by the southwest is the theme. Knotty alder cabinets with complementary granite were chosen to coordinate with the existing concrete floors. Oil rubbed bronze for the cabinet hardware, plumbing, lighting, vanity mirror, drapery hardware and barn style shower door harmonizes with colors in the granite. Natural tumbled travertine was chosen for the bathroom tile to coordinate with the oil rubbed bronze barn style shower door. Furniture style is a blend of rustic and industrial. A linen-rayon blend fabric in pewter was chosen for the drapery panels from Vern Yip’s textile line along with natural woven woods for the windows. Kilim and sisal rugs adorn the concrete floors to add warmth and texture. Original paintings are the star performers of this rustic ranch design.
