It really shows you can design and build a house in short amount of time, if you hire a good team and let them do their job, says Mark Candelaria. “It’s a different animal than designing a custom home of course, but it can be done. Damon Wake worked night and day for 2 months to get the design done.”

HGTV Smart Home 2017 host and interior designer Tiffany Brooks took her design cues from nature, using a variety of stone, metal, wood, leather and glass materials in the home’s perfectly appointed décor. 

The home features a spacious three-car garage, a wet bar, home office, generous pantry and laundry area, as well as a sleek, modern pool for cooling off in the desert heat.

The home’s style is current, yet authentic; simple, yet thoughtful. Its architecture embraces a clean-lined, masculine feel, while evoking a feminine touch through the use of soft textiles and fabrics.

 The colorful canyon-style home offers tranquil interiors and a serene view of the desert. Arizona is prevalent in the design through antique tribal elements and doses of the area’s amazing artistry.
