The Drewett Works-designed Model Home at The Village at Seven Desert Mountain was featured in the November 2022 National Edition of Modern Luxury Interiors. Thank you to the editors who selected this project and a special shout-out to interior designer Claire Ownby for collaborating and creating inspiring spaces.

Material Matters

From splashes of color to flashes of brass, it is all about the details when it comes to your kitchen and bath. Here, spaces to inspire—plus all the details to create your own wow-worthy moments.

Located in a newly developed desert-surrounded golf community—Seven Desert Mountain in Scottsdale—this clean-lined space was a collaboration between Ownby Design, Drewett Works, and Cullum Homes.


“The kitchen was designed for ultimate functionality while keeping entertainment needs at the forefront,” says architect C.P. Drewett of Drewett Works. “Our primary objective was to derive our inspiration from the sharp and handsome architecture and warm desert environment,” adds Claire Ownby of Ownby Design. “Bringing the house stone onto interior massings and using timeless natural materials were just a few of the ways we achieved this goal.” In lieu of a second island, the team created a casual counter-height dining table.


The kitchen—which has received multiple design awards—came together seamlessly. “Peace, tranquility and positive energy are all feelings one will get when standing in this kitchen space,” says Ownby, who notes that the appliance layout was fine-tuned to put efficiency at the forefront. “This space is the heart of the home, surrounded by elegant living spaces and seamlessly connecting to picture-perfect outdoor living,” adds Drewett. “And who doesn’t love living on a golf course? It’s beautiful every day of the year.”

Our primary objective was to derive our inspiration from the sharp and handsome architecture and warm desert environment. ”
