INSIDE SCV HOMES
Lovers of all things wine and Napa Valley, Preston and Nicole Geeting brought the California Wine Country aesthetic home to their own backyard when they designed this heavenly Yountville-style retreat nestled into the sprawling Southern Oaks hillside. For the Geetings, outdoor living has never been more pleasing to the palette.
This Valencia traditional French-country home is anything but standard for Santa Clarita - and the beauty's in the details. Located in Valencia, overlooking golf-course greens - and at over 7,000 square feet of living space - this five-bedroom estate also boasts a theater room, his-and-hers upstairs offices, a gym, a billiard room, a game room, three staircases, two exterior loggias and multiple courtyards.
In 2019, we resolved to live prettier. Our inspiration? These local homes!
Lisa Duncan's Valencia home could be considered your standard SCV tract house from the street, but only a glance inside would tell an entirely different story.
The home of Brian and Genessy Safdari, owners of College Planning Experts, is always well appointed - but come Christmas, the farmhouse aesthetic is elevated with the addition of glimmering holiday ornaments, charming adornments, sparkling trees - and garland galore.
The Saugus home of Rhonda Knights is comfortable, cozy - and entirely customized by Knights herself. The co-owner of AR Workshop (288-1903), Knights knows her way around woodworking tools, paint and stencils, and it shows. "A great deal of the decor, as well as the wall accents like shiplap, the beams, a lot of the furniture pieces, the barn doors - I made it," says the entrepreneur.
INTERIOR LOOKS
When Lisa and Robert Younkin first moved into their West Hills community home, a goal was set. "We wanted a house that exuded warmth - but still had clean lines and a very neutral palette."
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.
EXTERIOR LOOKS
A clean aesthetic and the world's best materials make for a refined al fresco experience.
From all dirt to all done, this Valencia yard shows off expert craftsmanship and high-end materials.

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.

Looking for your dream home? We've got you covered.
This month has brought the unthinkable to our town - and as we join a growing list of communities touched with such a sad and senseless tragedy, I would like to take a moment to recognize the beauty we've seen rise in Santa Clarita. It's this thought that inspired me to make a list of gratitudes - a reminder that the dark will not overtake the light in our community, while understanding that for many, there will always be something - and someone - missing.
