INSIDE SCV HOMES
When one thinks of Santa Clarita, the beautifully under-developed space that is Circle J Ranch rarely comes to mind, but not for lack of interesting homes, people and stories. In reality, the area is arguably one of the finest locations in the SCV to call home. The combination of an authentic agrarian feel with the near-by proximity of the city has proven to be persuasive for a multitude of families. And after your introduction to the home of Toni and Patrick Navas, you'll see why.
In 2018, we resolved to live prettier. Our inspiration? These local homes!
Two years ago, my team and I designed this home top to bottom with a chic farmhouse aesthetic - and now we're back... just in time to bring a fresh new take to that old-time Christmas feel!
Festival of Trees supporters and former Henry Mayo Home Tour participants, Richard and Marian Sandnes, have a heart for the holidays. "It's one of our favorite times of year," says Richard. "We love decorating for Christmas - and giving back." The family, known for philanthropy, have called their sprawling Sand Canyon estate "home" for decades. "It's fun to see a space that you've been in for years totally transform for Christmas," says Marian. "The whole family looks forward to all the trees and garlands - it's magical!"
Last month, we introduced our readers to the picturesque house of Jeannie and Chris Carpenter and shared that their property is home to the Assistance League's annual event, Sunset in the Vineyard. This month, we're giving you a premier tour of their vineyard space. Want an even closer look? Be sure to attend Sunset in the Vineyard on Sunday, November 5.
The "old Newhall" home of Jeannie and Chris Carpenter is a delicate blend of history and modernity, family and community. "We did all of the decorating ourselves," says Jeannie Carpenter, who describes her house as "old-school California." "A lot of the things here are hand-me-down pieces that Chris's grandfather crafted; a lot of others, I picked up from the Assistance League thrift store in Old Town Newhall. And some of it's new! But not much," laughs the committed SCV non-profit volunteer.

Life is better when you love where you live.
Here's the best way to make your home even happier this holiday.
Happy Home Improvements to make Before Thanksgiving.
Everything Old is New Again
In September, we adjust to our new "back to school" post-summer schedules. In October, we begin the 31-day candy binge, which is pretty much the only thing that gives us enough energy to get through the haunted decorating, costume searches and numerous parties that require us to put our hands in bowls of cold spaghetti (It feels just like brains?!). November doubles up our duties; now we're shopping for December gift-giving holidays and prepping for the familial circus that is Thanksgiving. And don't get us started on what December entails. Conclusion? If you're going to upgrade, accent, fix up or DIY anything in your home before the close of 2017, the least-stressful time to do it is... now. So - ho, ho ho, it's off to our favorite home and decor stores we go!

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!).

"Trust" is the forgotten element in the Realtor/client relationship.
The more things change, the more they stay the same - or so we're told. "Who wants to deal with all the energies and efforts of change if there's no payoff?," hypothesizes Dave Rendall, owner of RE/MAX of Santa Clarita and Valencia. "Change takes work - but it's also incredibly rewarding - and we're seeing that in the development of our team and our community right now."
