Name: Heather & Matt
Location: Sante Fe, New Mexico

We live in the tiny village of Madrid, NM, just south of Santa Fe. It’s a community of 400 people with over 50 art galleries, so, our friends are artists, and the house that my husband Matt and I built with our own 4 hands, while growing our family over the past 5 years is full of our friends’ art.

We live on a mountain top, overlooking our village and Santa Fe on 8 acres. What makes our home special, and what we love about it is that WE built it. Every nail, every board, every finish was collected and executed by us, from the foundation to the the light fixtures. It’s a work of love, the place we can be the most creative and an ever evolving project!
