INSIDE SCV HOMES
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 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.
Mark and Jenifer Felan's home in Valencia's Vista Ridge is where dreams were fulfilled - and new ones sown. The couple put their heart and soul into turning the house into a sanctuary for their children, family and friends and then, when the last nail was pounded in and the dust had truly settled, Jenifer set her sights on the pair's next project. "Opening Organic Sweat Shack was a leap of faith," says the certified organic health practitioner. "We put our trust in God. It became clear very quickly that my passion to help people heal and recover their health is my calling - and I get to express that through the Shack. It has been an incredible journey."
This Valencia yard is big on entertainment, if not huge in square footage. "But by Valencia standards, we have a large yard," says the homeowner. "We have a lot of space to entertain, enough room for a pool, areas to lay out, throw a ball. It's really a family-friendly party yard," she says of her English-styled space.
Chances are, there's not a single home in Stevenson Ranch that resembles the Young family's Southern Oaks space - and that's just how homeowners Heather and Brad like it.

You do it every year (Or, um... we do?). 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. Then Halloween happens and every well-intentioned plan seems to go up in sugar-fueled flames.

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!).
