Su Casa Autumn 2018 cover

Autumn is a magical time of year in Northern New Mexico, with arguably some of the best weather in the country. It’s a great time to hit the road with some friends to tour the 33 spectacular houses on the Fall Parade of Homes. Bring along the Autumn issue of Su Casa Northern New Mexico for details on each house, plus maps and directions. One of our beautiful feature homes is contemporary and the other leans toward country French, but both are spectacular, and both earned multiple awards in the Spring 2018 Parade of Homes. Also in this issue: designing acoustics systems into your home, holiday decorating and baking, how to purchase and take care of Oriental rugs, and regular columns from Steve Thomas, Moll Anderson, James Selby, and Tom Smylie. Plus—a review of the best build and design apps and a roundup of fall festivals and events throughout Northern New Mexico!

peace of mind

One of my favorite local restaurants, which has locations in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe, has one quality that I truly appreciate: You can have a conversation with the person across from you without having to yell to be heard. The owner explained to me how the pillows in the booths and the sound panels on the ceiling all work to thwart the noise that’s all too common in restaurants. When dining out, we enjoy a peaceful environment where we can eat, socialize, hear, and be heard. We crave that same peace and quiet in our homes.

One couple in this issue of Su Casa Northern New Mexico positioned their contemporary home out in the East Mountains in order to achieve that peace and quiet. Another was able to achieve a level of sound management by positioning landscaping, walls, and windows to block unwanted noise, and even wrapped their home around a center courtyard to embrace the quiet.
