Another highlight from BlogTourVegas was visiting the New American Home, built by Blue Heron and designed by Blue Heron’s interior design consultant Miquel Hutton. The home was AMAZING and the two most interesting facts?
1. The home has a net zero electrical usage, thanks to a superior insulation package, passive solar design, LED light fixtures, Energy Star appliances, and an 15 kW photovoltaic array.
2. The home is the ultimate in modern luxury yet surprisingly, done on a “budget” with mostly off the rack items.
The bar with the adjoining wine room was one of my favorite spaces in the home. Backlit onyx panels and standard metal pipes drilled with round holes created the wine display. A Mohawk Karastan carpet from the new Smart Strand Silk Forever Clean line, comfortable leather chairs and a geometric shaped table is the perfect tasting spot. I could move right in, couldn’t you?

Have a great weekend!
