Interior Trends for 2018-2019 – Mixtures of Natural Textiles, Woods, Glass and Metals


Reconnecting with nature with organic materials and a look of natural craftsmanship. Natural Luxury hand-felted pillows from Fog and Fury made out of wool with silk fibers pulled through. Their designs may include fibers such as alpaca, llama, camel, yak and rabbit and the colors in their designs are all natural. Their craft practice is rooted in a 5,000-year-old Mongolian nomadic tradition which makes Fog and Fury’s felting both ancient and modern. Stunning accents for mountain homes!

The hunky leather sofas are giving way to more sleek contemporary lines. Luxurious velvets, corduroys, and wools are becoming more popular. Leathers are still desirable but used on more modern silhouettes. Faux furs are cozy and sophisticated additions to any room. Pillows always add interest and texture. Mismatch textures, add layers of textiles to create a cozy, relaxed environment.

Love the velvets and sleek, sophisticated furnishings. A fabulous blend of rustic and contemporary.

The heavy, ornate, amber glass fixtures with pine trees or bears are being replaced with more modern, simple designs. Mixing contemporary lighting with rustic woods defines a new look. Hand blown glass fixtures illuminate while allowing the mountain views to shine through.

Honey-toned woods are gaining popularity along with the ever-present dark tones but with different textures and tones. Handcrafted, natural finishes are preferred over mass-produced.

As seen below, the carbonization veining technique of Shou Sugi Ban that results in a wonderful blackened surface effect is gaining popularity. Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese technique dating back to the 1700’s of preserving wood (which is normally used outdoors) by charring the surface. As you can see it works both indoors and out on walls, floors, ceilings or furniture.

In contrast to Shou Sugi Ban, this fabulous mountain retreat is a beautiful example of light, honey-toned woods in walls and furnishings. Love the narrow, horizontal paneling in a light finish! A contemporary take on the old vertical wood paneling that was so prevalent in mountain cabins.

I hope these looks inspire you with the wonderful textures, finishes, furnishings and lighting concepts. However, keep in mind that trends come and go so rather than going too trendy in your interiors it’s a better plan to use these concepts judiciously so that you ultimately create a more timeless interior. I feel that what makes an interior space unique is the personal touch you bring to it by decorating with objects that are of value to you as the client and that make you feel something.

Canyon Course: Bunker Renovation / New Irrigation System

December 29, 2017 – Progress Report

The Irrigation System renovation progress is moving very slowly. This is partially due to the presence of large amounts of rock in the digging layers. We have found it necessary to rent a track hoe with a rock breaker attachment. This piece of machinery is responsible for the noise that you may have heard coming from the course recently. Although progress is slow this equipment is gaining traction and moving us forward in the process. There is also an additional expense for the equipment, unfortunately.

Fortunately the nice weather has allowed work to continue much longer than expected. At this point progress on the irrigation system is roughly 30% complete. This has us on track to stay within the time frame we originally anticipated. Holes 13, 17, 18 and 9 are 100% complete and mainline has been completed for holes 14, 15 and 16. We anticipate holes 13, 15 and 16 to be the rockiest and most difficult, with these holes behind us progress should pick up shortly.

Hole 15 - Irrigation System

Hole 15 of the Irrigation System renovation. As you can see there is a lot of large rock to contend with during digging.

Bunker Renovation

The Bunker Renovation is now 100% complete. With this project we are on time and slightly under budget. The crew from DHR Construction has been terrific and extremely thorough. The bunkers look amazing and drainage will be superb. We hope our membership will be very pleased with the outcome. Below you will find a number of photos with descriptions of the work.

Bunker 18 Renovation

This is a bunker on 18 green. The sand is removed and drainage is in place. Notice the dirt work above the blue line to the left. This bunker has been reshaped to mimic its original shape. A rough estimate of 50% of the bunkers required at least minor reshaping.

Capillary Concrete Hole 3 Fairway

Applying capillary concrete. This is a water permeable concrete liner that cannot be damaged by elk. The bonded aggregate allows for terrific water penetration and prevents future sand contamination from washouts or elk damage. This is a photo of hole 3 fairway bunker.

Pipe Puller - Canyon Course

This is a “pipe puller” making a giant mess of Hole 13 back tees. Small elevated tees are a real challenge.

Mainline on Hole 9

Digging mainline on Hole 9. Very nice dirt down in the canyon. The pipe adjacent to the trench is HDPE. This pipe is electronically fused for strength. Fusing is a slow process that makes a joint much stronger than the pipe itself and eliminates glue joint failure.

Frozen sod over rock damaged trench

Trying to lay frozen sod on rock damaged trenches is difficult at best. This will require some grow-in repair time. The rigors of doing a job like this in the middle of winter.

Bunker excavation

Excavating out old sand and piling topsoil on the lip for reshaping.




One final note. Please remember these bunkers are brand new. They are not sand boxes or sledding hills for children. These improvements represent an investment of $440,000 and lots of hard work. Please help us protect them so they last for many years.

The irrigation installation is stalled for the holidays. Should the nice weather continue we will be restarting the first week of January to continue digging mainline on holes 11 and 12.   We are definitely pleased that we can move forward with the irrigation system, however, the lack of moisture is becoming a big concern from a forest health standpoint. Let’s hope for at least a couple of good snows.

Enjoy your holidays.

By now most of us have bid a fond end-of-season farewell to our beautiful community nestled in the gorgeous ponderosa pines.

We look forward to returning to the Valley – to our homes, friends and neighbors, and familiar routines – with anticipation after a summer of respite and renewal.

In saying “goodbye”, though, let us not forget to look in the rearview mirror – not only to drink in the exceptional beauty of our host city and environs, but to recognize and acknowledge the poverty and need that surrounds us amidst the natural splendor of our North Country homes.

As we head into this Season of Sharing, we hope that you will be inspired to “Give Where You Live”.  Join us in reaching out to our neighbors in need in Flagstaff and sharing the bounty we are so fortunate to enjoy throughout the year.

Your donations can and do change lives!

Wishing You and Yours a Blessed Season of Sharing.
