allas couple Sherry and Randall Reed wanted a place to truly unwind — and after securing their ideal lot in Sedona, Arizona, they worked with a talented team to build the vacation retreat of their dreams.
The modernist structure — clad with light brown and reddish sandstone and khaki-colored stucco — looks as if it were crafted from the iconic rock formations that surround it. “This house is organic,” designer Divya Debra Barter says. “It has a seamless connection to its site.”
Like the home’s architect, Eric Brandt — who worked to blend the abode’s exterior with the rich landscape — Barter opted for finishes inspired by the desert. The interior boasts a gold, red, brown, beige and ivory color palette, with cherry cabinetry and granite in the kitchen, and silvery grays and travertine in the master bathroom.
Perhaps most importantly, the all the spaces are functional.
“Sherry and Randall wanted their children to feel very comfortable here,” she says. “So, I used natural fabrics like linen, cotton and silk. They’re very soft to the touch.”
The home may be outfitted with modern technology, such as smart home keypads and LED lighting controlled through a smartphone, but with a roof deck, fire pits and outdoor movie theater, the Sedona escape ultimately beckons its residents to take notice of the serene setting.
