read Su Casa Winter 2021

Welcome to the Winter Issue of Su Casa

Our winter edition centers around two remodeled homes, one rebuilt from the studs and one completely torn down and rebuilt from scratch—fitting metaphors for the new beginning we all need as we close out 2020 and look forward to 2021.

This issue of Su Casa Magazine offers ways to infuse warmth and light into your home and your life, and by extension, into your new year. Professionals provide tips on winter landscape maintenance, brightening your rooms with light-reflecting mirrors, and the selection and care of rugs. So, you can get outside on sunny winter days and enjoy some fresh air, and maybe espy some dark-eyed junco birds, while prepping your garden for spring.

Welcome to the Winter Issue of Su Casa

Our winter edition centers around two remodeled homes, one rebuilt from the studs and one completely torn down and rebuilt from scratch—fitting metaphors for the new beginning we all need as we close out 2020 and look forward to 2021.

This issue of Su Casa Magazine offers ways to infuse warmth and light into your home and your life, and by extension, into your new year. Professionals provide tips on winter landscape maintenance, brightening your rooms with light-reflecting mirrors, and the selection and care of rugs. So, you can get outside on sunny winter days and enjoy some fresh air, and maybe espy some dark-eyed junco birds, while prepping your garden for spring. Later, warm yourself by the fire with some craft cocoa (and your copy of Su Casa). We’ve provided hearth tools, two books perfectly suited for some quality armchair time, and luxurious sources of warmth, for both the home and the soul.

As a salve for that cabin fever, we reconnect with the in-person shopping experience with a review of some locally owned treasures and a tour of Taos’ eclectic lodging options for your next road trip. For foodies, there is a delicious, belly-warming recipe from a vegetarian restaurant that specializes in comfort food, and a wine expert lays out a lesson on reading wine labels for a more confident wine-buying experience. It’s all proof that there’s a plentitude of ways to enjoy even the darkest days of winter.

We’re all anxious for 2020 to be over. It’s been a tumultuous year. But there is so much for which to be grateful and to look forward to. Let’s make 2021 a better year, starting with this notion— let’s inject optimism into everything we do.

With best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year,
