Featured Project: Kim Scodro’s Desert Haven

Kim Scodro is an award-winning, Chicago and Arizona-based interior designer who brings a refined sense of style and appreciation for the fun and unexpected. Scodro’s work has been featured in several publications, including Luxe Interiors + Design, Phoenix Home and Garden, Chicago Home and Garden Magazine. Most recently, she received the NAHB Custom Home of The Year award for her desert haven home.

Scodro poured her passion for interior design into her own home envisioning a house inspired by a classic foundation with a modern twist. She collaborated with her team on the single-story, hacienda-style structure with sweeping vistas and a floor plan that encouraged family togetherness and outdoor living — an essential for the Scodro family. Its updated neutral color palette meshes perfectly with the home’s layers of warmth and texture. The textures and tones of Slat from The Heritage Timber Edition created a sense of softness and warmth and complemented the reclaimed barnwood shelving and alder ceiling beams. We especially love the Slat wall treatment accented in her office. The end result is a comfortable, inviting space that keeps Arizona’s desert landscape close to heart.
