Into the Blue

We all could use a little help during the holidays … even when it comes to decorating! Our cover story, which starts on page 12, profiles a homeowner who draws on the expertise of a friend who is a floral designer in order to create spectacular room displays. You’ll see some dazzling motifs in the Richardson home, which features a lovely emphasis on blue.

At my casa, the Hacienda style sets the tone for my holiday themes. Get a glimpse of some of my inspired seasonal décor on page 18.

With our mild winters, gardeners can continue to enjoy backyard blooms, as well as prepare for a vibrant spring. We visited the home of Perri Touche, who plans her colorful patio scene while much of the country is shoveling snow. See the results of her work on page 20.

Sometimes landscapes are in need of a total transformation to transition from bland to beautiful. Check out the work of landscape designer Jennifer Patton on page 26.

You don’t need to give up the “wow” factor to save valuable resources. Adding native and arid-adapted plants to a yard can conserve water and yield eye-catching results. Read our Pros Who Know about Tucson Cactus & Koi, on page 34, to find out how.

A new feature this month profiles regional crafts people. Discover the tile work of Carly Quinn on page 11 and the furniture designs of Ricardo Diaz on page 36.
