Freshen Up Your Living Spaces with the 2014 Color of the Year
categories: Luxury Living, luxury real estate, Paradise Valley Living, Scottsdale Living
 
 

 Written by MLG Rockstar Ashlyn Rowe

ashlynFor all of you design followers out there, we know that every year Pantone, a world renowned company specializing in color selection, chooses a “Color of the Year.” Last year we welcomed the rich and unique color of Emerald. This year, Pantone has announced the 2014 Color of The Year, Radiant Orchid. “ Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination” says Pantone. In the summer months bright colors are sure to bring in a new vibe to your household and liven up any living space.  Pantone suggest the use of accent pieces, or removable/replaceable items to expose this brilliant color.

As seen on chicinspector.com

Accent pillow, throw blankets, and even a freshly planted Orchid placed in the room can set a refreshing mood. The color, Radiant Orchid can be paired nicely with smokey grays, dark chocolates, vibrant yellows, and neutrals. Two other shades that peak an interest for this summer, are Luxe Linen and Sunny Side Yellow. The neutral tone that linen gives to a room is calm and serene. The rich neutral color gives an earthy vibe that is soft and soothing.

To create a bit more excitement and warmth in your household, add in those oranges and yellows to brighten up the space. Bring in blood orange to a crisp all white kitchen, and extend  color out doors placing yellow patterned pillows to create an elegant, fresh new surrounding.

So take time to reenergize your color palette and help provide a unifying element for each diverse space in your home this summer.

Tuscan Home for Sale in Scottsdale’s in Sierra Estates
categories: Luxury Living, luxury real estate, Scottsdale Living
 
 

The enclave of Sierra Estates in North Scottsdale is off 136th & Shea. The quaint gated community is filled with Mediterranean style homes with clay tile roofs, window shutters and natural stone and if you didn’t know it was there you may drive right on by.

Many of the homes have tremendous mountain views and I would bet the neighbors would be happy to loan you some sugar when needed.

This residence is just shy of 5,800 square feet and not only has a large master suite with a spa bath and fitness room in the main house, it also has two additional bedroom suites and a den. The formal living and dining rooms are open to each other with a large butlers pantry for serving or storing dishware. Sure to be noticed is the spacious kitchen with over-sized island, top of the line appliance package and breakfast nook all open to the family room for every day living.

Did I mention that the interior decor includes natural stone, custom faux treatments and eye-catching custom ceiling details such as the barrel ceiling in the hallway? Neat stuff.

A big plus for this floorplan is the guest casita that is accessed through a curved staircase off the front courtyard. The casita has a main room (currently set up with a pool table), a bedroom and it’s own private office with sunset views.

All of this is offered at $1,400,000. Not too shabby.

For more information about this distinctive residence, give us a call for a private tour or click here for more information.
