INSIDE SCV HOMES
This home is bursting with elements we love - luscious greenery, exotic landscape design, patio perfection and more.
Rich woods, dramatic lighting, heavy fabrics and nods to glamorous hotels band together to create a home in Valencia that is entirely New York chic.
Golf-course living in Santa Clarita means heritage oaks, mountain views and every excuse for al fresco dining.
The tract house that Tim and Cindy Dadik call home has the look and feel of a custom home thanks to a recent floor-to-ceiling remodel. "The only thing we kept from our previous 11 years here was the pool table - and even that got a navy-blue fabric upgrade," reflects Cindy. "We wanted an open floor plan that was airy and bright."
Simplicity can be beautiful. That's the thought behind this Santa Clarita yard, filled with simple lines, organic elements and plenty of space to entertain.
Modern design is softened with organic additions and delicate textures.
INTERIOR LOOKS
In physics, black may be the absence of physical light, but in design it can be an anchor that pulls everything together.
2019 Seasonal Trend Watch
A mis-managed previous remodel is ground for growth and opportunity in this unique master bedroom.
"Designing a bathroom or powder room is the perfect opportunity to intimately reflect your personality and preferences," says Rebecca Johnston, owner of MIX by RJohnston Interiors. "Because of the relatively small space, you can invest more in materials and accessories that have a big wow factor. That designer wallpaper you covet may be $90+ a roll, but one roll might be all you need for your entire powder room. Even the most exquisite selections become a steal in small but impactful spaces. This is the place to really express yourself and what you love. It's just for you."
Life is better when you love where you live.
Here's the best way to make your home even happier this holiday.
EXTERIOR LOOKS
Show your home some TLC this season.
Make entertaining, relaxing with the fam or your summer staycation more exciting with outdoor games - because those that play together, stay together!
In Santa Clarita, our near-constant great weather means that we can expand our living spaces into our yards.
The bonus square footage is only of value, though, if we make our exterior spaces feel as good as our interior -
and blend the two areas seamlessly so that the entire home flows.
Garage floors, pet runs, backyard patio spaces, laundry rooms... they could all use flooring that's easier to clean, better looking, more sanitary and safer to use. And - in 2019 - the best choice for that is clear: the custom patented polyurea floors from ALLBRiGHT.
Located right outside the Whelchel upstairs master bedroom and bathroom lies a grand master balcony. "It's a surprising amount of space - definitely enough to really take advantage of and make it feel like its own distinct room," explains homeowner Shelly Whelchel.

This month, why don't you... "tidy up" with an intentional spring cleaning?
2019 doesn't disappoint when it comes to new innovations in design and details. Your home-improvement to-do-list starts here.
RIGHT AT HOME
Giving back, paying forward and grand design
Taking care of what you already have might not spiral you into bliss, but the practicality of it means that you have the opportunity to build on your successes with the "new sparkly" of the moment instead of recreating the wheel.
A second-floor washing machine mishap. Fire and smoke damage from faulty wiring. Mold in the wall behind a leaking bathroom sink. Cat dander from the previous resident. Missing tiles and damaged stucco from a wind storm.
Spring into an egg hunt in a furniture store this month - and skip cleaning your floors!
We're craving the season's best upgrades.
Recently, a neighbor eagerly led me and the couple next door into his garage to show off a hard-earned new car. Quickly, the accolades came pouring in: "Wow, it's gorgeous!" "So shiny!" "I love how the color really pops."

Homes are emotional places. For better and for worse, they're a symbol of our financial status, our family makeup and our personality traits. So what happens when your home no longer fits one or more of those qualities - but you're not ready to let go and move on? (As in: Move out!).
After 30 years of success in Santa Clarita real estate, I get asked a lot: "What's the key to your success?" The truth is, there's no magic bullet for real estate.
