Spring 2021 Su Casa Magazine cover image

Welcome to the Spring Issue of Su Casa

Can you feel the warmth in the air and hear the birds singing? As the sun graces us a bit longer each day during the unfolding of this new season, we at Su Casa are optimistic about returning to “normal” life while embracing the changes that stemmed from the past year—changes that highlighted the ‘home’ as the foundation of modern life.

As an emphasis on self-care becomes a renewed priority, we look inside several bathrooms that feature gorgeous soaking tubs designed for relaxation and rejuvenation. These inspired designs will have you rethinking your master bathroom and the way you unwind.

Welcome to the Spring Issue of Su Casa

Can you feel the warmth in the air and hear the birds singing? As the sun graces us a bit longer each day during the unfolding of this new season, we at Su Casa are optimistic about returning to “normal” life while embracing the changes that stemmed from the past year—changes that highlighted the ‘home’ as the foundation of modern life.

As an emphasis on self-care becomes a renewed priority, we look inside several bathrooms that feature gorgeous soaking tubs designed for relaxation and rejuvenation. These inspired designs will have you rethinking your master bathroom and the way you unwind.

Look forward to the Spring Parade of Homes—a chance to get out and envision something new for our lives. Su Casa navigates you through our beautiful community and showcases the latest in building and design trends. This parade’s Signature Community, Inspiration by Pulte Group, takes cues from 2020 with a fresh approach to living spaces, including new flexible floor plans. Signature Builder Abrazo Homes brings “hometown” to your home base with their “better not bigger” team approach to building.

Our featured homes in this issue offer lessons in contrast. One project by New Haven Homes in Corrales beautifully blends traditional and rustic elements with clean, modern lines. And the second, designed and built by Santa Fe’s The Virginian Designer/Builder, Inc., is a wholly Southwestern exterior juxtaposed against a sleek, minimalist interior.

As we continue to stay safe and limit the size of our gatherings, we can still endeavor to make them just as memorable as a full-blown party. Check out the gorgeous tablescapes that transform even the most intimate family meal into a five-star event. While you’re at it, consider the high-quality, handmade dinnerware and other home decor items from the local artisans at Hanselmann Pottery.

With each issue, I’m amazed by the talent in our community, including gifted artisans, local builders and interior designers. We witness the ingenuity of small-business owners, who have been creative in their efforts to remain open and serve our community at the highest level, even in the face of challenges and uncertainty. Their collective work contributes richness to our New Mexican culture and enhances our incomparable lifestyle. Look forward together with us … the freshness of springtime awaits.
