I love creating outdoor spaces as you would interior rooms.  With all the amazing materials available to use in all-weather conditions.  This outdoor space at the Broken Top club in Bend Oregon is the perfect example of taking it outdoors!

This classic teak armchair from the Restoration Hardware / Santa Monica collection is updated with black Perennials all weather fabric, and accent pillows covered in Pendelton blankets.  Along with bold punches of color in the powder coated aluminum drum tables.

The focal point of the sitting area is this wonderful 54" steel fire bowl fabricated by Modern-Fab of Bend, surrounding the fire bowl are very comfortable "Maia" arm chairs manufactured by Kettal.

For the cooking area we repeated the ledge stone already used in other areas of the home, bringing the materials from the interior outside along with honed black concrete counters fabricated by Cement Elegance of Bend.

The cantilevered bar with classic Bertoia bar stools has a light airy feel blending seamlessly with the landscape enjoying views of the fairways and Cascade peaks in the distance.

I love the contrasts of textures and elements as with the woven willow sphere setting on a curved concrete bench next to the steel fire bowl

In the dining area we used a wonderful teak and steel table from the Sutherland collection mixed with Bertoia side chairs.

Perhaps my favorite thing is this 2,000 pound boulder we found at Empire stone in Bend,  after consulting with our installation experts we hired a crane to swing it over the house and into place.   A few bold choices mixed in with classic modern pieces has resulted in the perfect mix of elements for this outdoor room.



Your master bedroom should be a place of sanctuary, an escape from the hustle & bustle of everyday life.  Also a place to live with & enjoy some of your most favorite collections.

In designing any room I am always inspired by the natural surroundings and of course the architecture you have to work with.  For this master bedroom the floor to ceiling windows frame spectacular views of the this wooded Northwest landscape, I choose not to compete with the views but enhance with neutral backgrounds and simple furnishings.

The floating maple shelf extends into the bay window behind the bed creating one simple horizontal line, the artwork on the shelf is one of my own created with a sheet of lead in front of it is an antique wood mill wheel.  The Japanese screen doubles as sun screen and headboard.

The room flows from the bed area into this bath space with views extending through the entire length of the room.  The cabinets in this area were designed to float in the space creating a seamless blend with the architecture rather than reading as built in furniture.

The entrance to the bedroom is framed by this floor to ceiling window looking out to the foothills, on the wall is a trio of simple floating shelves displaying a collection of turned wooden bowls.

The walls throughout the bedroom and bath are covered in a natural madagascar wall covering, here the   wall covering extends into a trio of niches perfectly displaying collections.  The Chinese elmwood chair and natural cyprus wood stump repeat the theme of ancient and modern combined with natural elements.
