This house in Scottsdale, Arizona, by Oz Architects with interiors by David Michael Miller Associates. Modern family needs and aged Mediterranean patina in a rural farmhouse is a recipe of an ideal home. There is a central courtyard with pool providing ample opportunity to tie the inside to the out. A series of intimate rooms not large open plan areas ensures the home, though large, is on a more human scale. I like the interiors – calm, rustic, traditional and in cool warm beige shades. The open terrace outside is great for sunbathing and swimming in the cool pool decorated with stone. New yet old, relaxed yet sophisticated.
