There’s no way that we can choose a favorite St. George home, but we can certainly select some of our most memorable design moments (there are so many). These seven are among our faves and prove that style has always been-and always will be- hot in Southern Utah.

 

Outdoor living is all the rage in St. George, and this spacious patio expands the vacations home’s livability with poolside flair and breathtaking views. A high-contrast color palette and large windows link indoors and out seamlessly.

It’s all about the views. Overlooking Zion National Park, this small, special home was created to capture and celebrate the beauty of its surroundings without distracting embellishment or overworked design.

Contemporary design cooks in the deserts of Utah. Light floods this St. George kitchen as a mix of compelling materials add texture and flair. The fir ceiling and walnut island visually warm the room as a stainless steel range hood and cream Polyac cabinets pair with glass to add sleek, ultra-chic style.

A wall of glass features butte-framed panes and soars to 17-feet high in this desert home’s living room. The ledge-stone fireplace seems to flow uninterrupted from indoors to out beneath the contoured roofline.

A two-sided fireplace enchants an outdoor patio as well as the master suite on the other side of the wall. The landscape seems to hug the home’s private patios, making them cozy and tranquil in the desert evenings.

Light emanates from this St. George home’s interior, creating the illusion that nothing separates the indoor and outdoor areas. A small wall of flames flickers at the end of the patio pool.

Torii arches, used in Japan to signify entrance to a sacred area or temple, inspired those located at the front of this St. George home. A stone-embedded sidewalk adds to the entry’s organic vibe.
