Horseback Riding at the Ranch

This week was a fun little escape with my fellow Vistage CEO groupies as we headed up to Sears Kay Ranch,  north of Scottsdale to ride some horses and check out the amazing scenery of Arizona. 


Our group has grown together through helping each other to improve our businesses, and it was nice to mix in a little friendship and fun out on the trail. 



What a great time, and special thanks to Howard for hosting, Karie for wrangling us, to Ron, the proprietor of the gold mine we visited, and to our fabulous trail guides!

From Tile to Teeth.

Not your typical dental office, right?  Luke recently finished this project in Arcadia, a fabulous environment that certainly takes the edge off dental work!  


 Pictured here, the lobby bathroom - 

Amber limestone in an offset pattern on floors and wainscot is a dynamic backdrop for features like teak door jambs, ceilings, and cabinetry, handcrafted on-site to custom specifications.   
 
While the majority of tile projects we take on are indeed glass tile and mosaics, we also enjoy projects like this.  Unique materials are selected as a part of a cohesive design vision like that of the architect on this project, Greg Seitz.  

Luke collaborates with the other craftsmen of the project, paying attention to the fine details and communicating with the project leaders so the finished product will live up to the initial concept and vision.

Rich color combinations create a dramatic effect, taking patients' minds off pending procedures...

A textural aquamarine feature wall and custom fabricated tangerine vanity complete the design palette.

This project is full of cool surprises, like the hidden door shown here...
