INSIDE SCV HOMES
With the help of talented designer Tracey McKee of McKee & Company, this exquisite estate went from "Country French" to a lighter, brighter European escape. "She got rid of the red and green florals; the plaids; the oak finishes and revitalized the space with classic shades of ivory and blue. Our home now feels like a breath of fresh air! It's comfortable, stylish and meets our every need," says the homeowner.
The stunning home belonging to Jim and Karen Reilly may look luxurious, but don't let that intimidate you. This is a place where rowdy kids have gathered, dogs have roamed and feet have always been invited "up." "I'm a mom of boys, I'm outnumbered!" jokes Karen Reilly. "They never cared what I did to the house and they don't mind the 'pretty.' I'm given a lot of free reign but my goal has always been to create a space that is comfortable and relaxing. You don't have to worry about breaking anything here. It's homey and cozy," says the military mom.
It's our favorite time of year - holiday decor time! - and we're eager to deck the halls with the help of Henry Mayo's Holiday Home Tour. Each festive season, we look forward to getting an up-close look at Santa Clarita's finest homes, all dressed up for celebration! Here we take a look back at two old favorites as we eagerly await the opportunity to explore this year's most fabulously appointed houses on the annual tour.
When one hears the word "eclectic" in reference to interior design, most immediately presume that the result will be a smorgasbord of upcycled thrift-store finds and bold colors. In the case of this Westridge home, however, it translates visually to a collection of rich textures, surprising accents and handmade intentions.
When life gives you lemons, turn them into lemonade - or, in the case of Scott Zimmerman's Stevenson Ranch house, turn a recent life change into an opportunity to remodel your home into a more accurate reflection of who you are. "With the help of Jen Brown from Surfaces SCV Design Center and Kathy Goldstein of Suburban Chateau, my house was 'lightened up' and made more masculine," says Zimmerman.
In 2009, Inside SCV Magazine featured Jim and Maya Carr's Woodlands home interior. (Search "House of Carrs" for that story and accompanying photographs on www.insidescv.com.). The expansive space was a reader favorite, with many writing in to share their love of the home's Spanish tile, brickwork, arches, wood beams and built-ins.

You tell yourself that you're going to remodel the powder room/replace the downstairs flooring/upgrade the kitchen/redesign the foyer before you have people over for Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year's.

But this year? Nope. This is your year! (And ours, too!). This is the year you start now. Are you with us!? (Good, because we're going to need some moral support. Tell us how you're doing at Facebook.com/insidescvmagazine!).
