Smart homeowners make the most of the winter season by planning or starting long-envisioned remodeling or renovation projects, and the Winter 2019 issue of Su Casa Northern New Mexico includes two feature homes that are comprehensive renovations, a contemporary residence in Albuquerque, and our cover home, a warm, Southwest-style abode in Santa Fe. Celebrity columnist Steve Thomas recalls The House That Wouldn’t Die (and its eventual remodel), and we’ll see how an Albuquerque icon, El Vado Motel, looks today, fully renovated after being closed for 13 years. If you’re not ready to remodel just yet, employing a few home organization tips will go a long way toward freshening the look of your home, as will our roundup of gold décor for every room. See photos from last year’s ShowHouse Santa Fe—an event as delicious as it was beautiful, and learn about Diner en Blanc, a not-so-secret dining event that’s taken Albuquerque by storm. All this, plus events and happenings going on around Northern New Mexico through March.

We consider this, the Winter issue of Su Casa Northern New Mexico, our remodeling issue, providing ideas and inspiration for the various renovation projects you might be considering.

While some may dread inclement weather, many of us savor the opportunity to address things in our home such as the nagging needs we set aside throughout the year while we enjoyed New Mexico’s lovely weather. The winter weather tends to bring outdoor enthusiasts indoors, and our homes often benefit from our presence. It might start by eliminating the clutter that has built up in garages, home offices, and master bedrooms. When one’s house is clutter-free, as several of the contributors to this issue write, the creative mind can soar, free of mental distractions.
