CHASING LUXURY

Photography by C. Whitney-Ward

This door is beautiful, but what it reveals when
 opened is even more beautiful...




This is one of the bedrooms of CASA BELLA, a luxurious Santa Fe vacation rental  that I recently toured and photographed. To say that I fell in love with this home is an understatement. It's an oasis, just a few blocks from Santa Fe's famed Canyon Road, and an easy walk to the historic Santa Fe Plaza.
I'll take you on a tour...


The front garden.


Step through the front door into the bright,  open living room/diningroom. It has an old-world feel and is dominated by a beautiful hand-sculpted fireplace with a handsome Santos taking center stage on a rough wooden mantle. The room is filled with light.




This magnificent hand-crafted chandelier is a sculptural gem, hanging above the dining room table. And the glass-prisim light below, punctuates
the beamed ceiling in the sunny breakfast room off the modern kitchen.



The rooms flow one into the next and deep inset windows bring the outside in. Table tops and window sills are filled with potted orchids and
niches showcase vintage santos. Doors open into lovely rooms...



Beautiful doors open into lovely rooms...


And, secret gardens and patios offer charming nooks for morning coffee,  cocktails and quiet times outdoors.
