CONGRATULATIONS to the Scottsdale Gateway Alliance for an
outstanding Inspiration Home Tour today. Six homes representative
of early builders in southern Scottsdale were graciously opened to
the public by innovative homeowners. Trolleys delivered eager
guests to each home where home interiors celebrated the era. The
use of gray tones sharply contrasted by a full turquoise wall,
open concept rooms, raised interior ceilings, revamped bathrooms
and stunning kitchen makeovers delighted the crowd. Two exterior
front patios expanded the living space to luxurious fire-and-water
features. Hopefully this will become an annual event. Dana Close
and her team are terrific organizers and we thank your volunteer
group for sharing southern Scottsdale.
