Utah Style and Design

Photo Friday – Be Inspired to Design

June 2, 2017

Need some inspiration for redesigning your home? We’ve look back at some of the great homes Scot Zimmerman has photographed for our Photo Friday series. Be inspired. And get designing.


“Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, saute it, whatever. MAKE.” – Joss Whedon

Admirers of noted architect Arthur Dyson, AIA. work love the jutting cantilevered overhangs, the views captured by the windows, the connections to outdoor living, solar performance, and the surprises in angles and forms. The kitchen redesign of this Springville, California home was part of a big upgrade the new homeowners lovingly undertook with interior designer Roseanne Guaglianone, owner of Hemisphere Furniture & Interior Design Studio in Fresno, California.

“Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.” – Nate Berkus

This home is in Midway, Utah, and at the time of the photograph, it was in use as a preschool. Sunflowers and hollyhock thrive in Midway’s short growing season. There is much to love about this home, but my favorite elements are the beehives and birdhouses mounted on the fence posts.

“Serious is a word that must be entirely avoided when it comes to decoration.” – Kathryn M. Ireland

This office can easily double as a small sitting room and is perfect when people need to stop by for a meeting. The art, mobile, and sculpture are wonderful, but my eye goes to the views out the corner windows to the hills of Kayenta. Ashley Johnson says that after a rain, waterfalls run down the hills. [Markay Johnson Construction/Ashley Johnson and Gregory Abbott designers]

“Design is intelligence made visible.” – Alina Wheeler

The patio space is one reason the home appears much larger. A low wall defines the patio and serves as a windbreak to make the outdoor living more comfortable when conditions are less than ideal. The lower seating area additionally benefits from a firepit as the center of the conversation area. [Markay Johnson Construction]

“Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.” – Robert L Peters

The kitchen’s navy blue cabinetry is set against white for a clean look that accentuates the geometry of the space. The Thermador refrigerator and freezer are separated and flank the range in what Kaye calls a pillar style. The cabinet hardware and metal accents are bronze, which looks especially rich and not unlike the effect of a double-breasted blue blazer with brass buttons.
