Chiaroscuro (English pronunciation: /kiˌɑːrəˈskjʊəroʊ/, Italian: [kjarosˈkuːro] "light-dark") in art is characterized by strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. -- Wikipedia.


tate-of-the-art home lighting — indoors and out — has undergone tremendous advances in the past decade, so much so that the latest technologies are now essential elements in both estimating a home’s value and providing the ultimate in visual comfort, mood setting and security. Even beyond this, says Tom Kretzschmar of Illuminations Lighting Design, one of Texas’ leading lighting specialization teams, clients are now far more savvy about the esoteric aspects of lighting, such as the use of chiaroscuro and other more subtle effects. Just as a new homeowner inspects the foundation of a home before purchasing it, so also should he be aware of, and demand, the latest in programmable lighting systems as well as lighting technology, says Kretzschmar whose company has been recognized as one of the state’s top firms for over 30 years. Superior lighting systems must overlay safe, solid advanced electrical systems to create functional, practical arrays that also provide decorative and aesthetic appeal. New, user-friendly control systems make programming lighting inside and out merely a matter of “pushing a button” — provided you have the most updated equipment. An Illuminations signature lighting design uses every chandelier, lantern, sconce — every up light and every down light inside and out — to both set a mood and ensure that every space is utilized to its maximum potential. 6

The benefits of lighting are numerous — whether in a new home or for remodeling. Kretzchmar says expertly installed lighting can and should: • Substantially increase the sale value of a home and landscape. • Be a vital component of safety and security measures. • Enhance valuable assets such as fine art, intricate indoor and outdoor architectural features — if done with the eye of an artist and the proper equipment to assure the safety and protection of such treasures. • Sculpt spaces and help create an infinite palate of different moods, often turning flat, harsh or uninviting areas into attractive vignettes. • Mold and blend colors, textures, forms and shadows creatively to produce a desired effect. • Provide the most effective route to uniting a home’s exterior with both formal and natural landscapes. • Expand usage of areas, particularly outdoors. • Help conserve energy. Lighting design has become a discipline of its own, Kretzschmar warns. It is difficult, if not impossible, for architects, interior designers, contractors or even engineers to keep up with all the latest available technological advances in such a specific area. New technologies, for example, adjust lighting levels differently in many separate sites, based on multiple factors, with a simple automatic program.

American luxury estates

“Gone are the days of providing a few extra circuits, looping the telephone wire from room to room or installing simple dimmer controls,” Kretzschmar says. Even though basic troubleshooting is still an essential need, keypads and touch screens have replaced traditional switches. Standby generators are the norm, not the exception. It is important for homeowners and potential homebuyers to remember that when one of these contracting professionals recommends using a lighting consultant, they are not showing weakness or lack of knowledge. On the contrary, they are recognizing the client’s discriminating taste and want the project to achieve its full potential. Illuminations Lighting Design uses residential lighting’s underlying electrical grid in much the same way as a builder uses concrete — a foundation on which all subsequent creative work must be anchored. Ideally, Kretzschmar said, the lighting expert should be brought in at the beginning of a project or before the home is built/purchased. That way, a sound foundation can be established on which to create not only an immediate lighting system, but one on which future advances can more easily be incorporated. However, experienced experts such as those at Illumininations Lighting Design can incorporate more modern equipment into existing systems, or even into situations where no lighting design was ever installed. Improving the lighting is an effective technique often used by homeowners wishing to update a home for a faster, more lucrative sale. Today’s electrical contractors must be able to understand and manage a plethora of subsystems that include everything from emergency generators to lighting control systems. Whatever the situation, Kretzschmar says, it is essential that lighting systems be custom-designed. They must fit with the lifestyles of those who will be utilizing them. A follow-up maintenance arrangement is also crucial to maintain the high level of enjoyment and technical efficiency. Lighting assumes an added role in this era of expanded outdoor living, when so often landscapes are truly enjoyed mainly in the evening. Fantasies of light in previously darkened grounds will draw one outdoors, extending those enjoyable hours. Perhaps the most beautifully sculptured dramas are created at night, when wonderful shapes and shadows add to the natural beauty of pools, fountains and pathways under the nighttime sky. “No tree is too high,” Kretzschmar adds with a smile. At the same time, he warns, just as when creating expert and effective lighting of valuable art indoors, special care must be taken never to endanger trees and other valuable plant life. With the latest technologies, it is possible to conceal lights, wires and junction boxes while allowing for tree growth and expansion. Illuminations Lighting Design’s expert, experienced staff — including more than 30 licensed electricians — works with both residential and commercial clients.

Drought or no drought -

an irrigation system can be your lawn’s best friend

Installing irrigations systems these days — especially in home landscapes — is no longer just a matter of keeping the yard well watered. As Craig Hall of Hall Sprinkler Company points out, today’s highly sophisticated systems not only make life easier and add significantly to a property’s value, they are also very beneficial to the environment: • Just the right amount of vital moisture can be individually supplied to adjacent plantings with widely-varied water requirements. • Precious water conservation can be enhanced with specific timing and application techniques so pointless loss of water to evaporation is minimized. • Programming advances make it possible to “read” weather conditions so that water won’t be wasted if unexpected changes in precipitation occur. “Thinking Green” is a byword these days, Hall says, as more customers are becoming familiar with energy-saving terminology such as drip irrigation, micro sprays and rain and freeze sensors. Irrigation systems, Craig explains, range from the simplest connections to complex networks of pipes, valves, sprinkler heads, electrical connections and a potential host of devices to help the system reach optimum efficiency. For this reason, it is essential that experienced personnel oversee the design, installation and maintenance. 8

And, he adds, all the “inner workings” must be cleverly integrated into the aesthetic design of the landscape so that it functions effortlessly with as little visual support system as possible. The success of a system, says Craig Hall, will be directly related to the competency, experience, reliability and specialized skill level of the installation contractor. With over 70 years experience in the irrigation industry, Hall Sprinkler Company has been amassing knowledge and skills from day one when George R. Hall started the Houston Lawn Irrigation Company in 1939. With a short break due to WWII’s material shortages, the company has continuously served the State of Texas’ ever-expanding irrigation needs. George, his father Edwin and brother Conway expanded the company with on-site offices to service customers in Dallas, San Antonio, Fort Worth and Austin. Irrigation customers range north, south, east and west throughout the state and beyond, such as a recent installation in Orlando, FL, explain Craig, a second generation Hall to be involved in the family-owned business. Eleven installation crews and eight service crews are among the 60+ employees statewide always in touch with industry advances to service the irrigation needs of their customers. Many have been with the company since the early days, one as long as 47 years and 11 for over 30 years. Fully licensed and insured supervisors guarantee 100 percent client satisfaction.

American luxury estates

The continuity of such a stable, experienced company is essential to a successfully installed and maintained irrigation system, whether in a home or professional landscape. What should you look for in an installation contractor? Craig Hall says you should expect your contractor to: • Personally view your property. • Ask about or determine for himself the soil conditions, water sources, planting materials and your own personal plans for, and use of, the areas. • Give you a detailed plan of what he proposes to do, with specific pricing that covers all materials and total installation. • Offer you additional options that can be added at that point or at a later date. • Explain specifics of the installation in as much detail as you would like. • Describe in detail any and all disruptions of the existing foliage and how such disruptions will be remedied. • Give you a time frame in which all installation and remedial work will be completed. • Thoroughly explain warranty information and maintenance options. • Offer to provide recommendations from satisfied customers who can be personally contacted. Craig points out that not all irrigation products work in all situations. He says a competent irrigation contractor will welcome a client’s questions, and won’t mind explaining why he is choosing specific types and brand names of controllers, valves, rotors, spray heads and other equipment.

Stablewood Springs

By Doug Pike


he luckiest among us, at least once in our lives, wind up holding something so beautiful, so wonderful, that we feel compelled to share it with others. That is how Houston developer Tom Fatjo felt about the slice of Texas Hill Country that became Stablewood Springs Resort. “I’m well acquainted with the Hill Country,” said Fatjo from across an expansive conference table in his Houston office. “I’ve been going there since I was 10. Went to summer camp there as a child.” During the years that followed, Fatjo said he came in contact with hundreds of adults who, like himself, longed for some sort of child-like reconnection to that special place in their pasts. When he bought the 540 acres within which Stablewood Springs is built, the property was earmarked as a family retreat where he, his children and their children could escape whatever weighed on their souls whenever they liked. From any of dozens of hilltops and meadows there, they could take in a deep breath of Hill Country air and let out whatever baggage needed expulsion that week or day or minute. The more he visited the property, which in many ways reminds him southern France, Fatjo said, the more public his long-term vision for that land became. A talented team was assembled, plans were drawn, and from those rolling hills was carved a uniquely magnificent oasis. The level of luxury to which guests of Stablewood Springs are exposed is extreme, almost excessively so and invariably beyond expectation. In this resort, Fatjo and his collaborators have created something of an adult


summer camp, a place where men and women – and their families – can enjoy every good thing that the Texas Hill Country has to offer. “One of the comments I hear most from our guests is that it wasn’t what they thought it would be, that it was in so many ways more,” said Tiffany Townsend, guest services manager for Stablewood Springs. “It’s been described as having a sort of ‘mom-and-pop’ feel with luxury amenities.” Visitors also sometimes underestimate the property’s inclusion of children, all ages, in its activities. Most anything the adults can do, within reason, children can do, as well. Barely five years old, Stablewood Springs already has garnered national attention for its impeccable service and style. The New York Times named it Texas’ most grand resort and further heralded the place as ranking among the top 10 properties in the entire nation. Such notoriety is no accident. Staff members at Stablewood Springs, each and all of them, are genuinely friendly and hand-picked for their ability to anticipate their guests’ needs and wants. Although the majority of the resort’s guests come from Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, in that order, the appeal of Stablewood Springs is increasingly worldwide. Visitors from numerous countries already have discovered and marveled at Stablewood Springs. Most were drawn here by the insistent recommendation of friends who already had hiked or golfed or dined or simply reclined on a private patio and witnessed a Hill Country sunset.

American luxury estates

“This is more than just another luxury property,” said Townsend. “We offer things you can’t find elsewhere, like kayaking trips down the Guadalupe River and mountain biking Texas style.” The resort also has seven miles of hiking trails and several fishing lakes on property, and guest-access to a championship golf course nearby. And at the end of a day spent witnessing whatever the Texas Hill Country has to offer that day, guests can retreat to Stablewood Resort’s pool, which Townsend said is among the guests’ favorite places to land after whichever activity they’ve enjoyed. For some guests, lounging around the exquisite pool is activity enough to pass the day. Something uniquely Stablewood is the ability to own a private retreat within its boundaries and, at a whim, enjoy all the property’s amenities. In addition to pampering its guests, Stablewood Springs also includes select parcels set aside for private accommodations. Two dozen private residences are built or nearly so, and a handful more will be built as the property continues its development. Adding to the attraction, Stablewood Springs offers its owners the opportunity to participate in a rental pool under two distinctly different options. Both are fair, and one or the other has appealed to roughly half the current owners. “More than 8,000 families come to the Hunt (Texas) area every summer for the camps,” said Fatjo. Now, he said, parents who make that drive to deliver their children into the care of the region’s high-end summer camps have good reason to linger for a lazy, luxurious night or two, perhaps the entire week, or to simply keep the family intact and enjoy that same time together. Build an appetite. Extraordinary food is made all the more so if you’ve worked up an honest hunger throughout the day. To help with that, Stablewood Springs offers a variety of physical activities to burn calories, raise a heart rate get its guests thinking about the good food that awaits them. The resort features dedicated hiking and running trails, an outstanding pool in which to swim until your fingers wrinkle, and several miles of mountain biking trails. Those cycling trails are designated with signage

as suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders; rental bikes and professional instructors are available. Additionally, resort owners and guests have playing privileges at Riverhill Country Club, a Byron Nelson-designed layout just 15 minutes down the road. Swim. Ride a bike. Tee it up. Play like a kid all day. Then reclaim the privileges of adulthood for an exquisite meal and, if you fancy, retreat to Stablewood Springs’ spa for an evening massage. Strictly business There is opportunity to for a select few people who own units at Stablewood Springs to recoup some of their investments through participation in a somewhat unique rental program. Owners may select from a plan that returns 45 percent of rental revenue to them or another that guarantees them an 8 percent return. There are details involved with such creativity, of course, but both programs reflect the confidence of Fatjo and his team in the long-term future of Stablewood Springs. Within its relatively short history, the resort has built and sold 15 units, of which nine participate in rental programs. Another nine units were under construction at the time of this writing. Contact the resort’s business office at 830-238-4646 for details on these unique offerings. - DP

The Bay Islands in the Western Caribbean offer some of the most unspoiled amenities of the Caribbean. One of these islands is Roatan, where tropical forests, cloudless skies, pristine beaches and an azure ocean that is home to an amazing coral reef all combine to envelop one in a world that many would describe as paradise. It is here on Roatan that a visionary engineer named Dan Taylor discovered the perfect locale to develop a community second to none in design and quality. Using his experience in creating projects the world over, he saw on Roatan an opportunity to build a residential development designed for those who are used to the finest things in life. Thus began the odyssey that grew into what is now known internationally as Keyhole Bay. Keyhole Bay encompasses the intimate beach in the “keyhole,” single family estate home sites, and luxury townhomes and condominiums. Soon to take its rightful place in the master scheme is Keyhole Village, which will include a shopping mall, medical and attorneys’ offices, grocery and boutiques – anything to make the residents’ lives as easy and carefree as possible.

An Idyllic World on Roatan Island The luxury condominiums are the focal point of a private Caribbean community catering only to those who are accustomed to surrounding themselves with the finest of everything. The Condominiums at Keyhole Bay are priced from just $372,000 for a spacious one-bedroom 1,500

square foot home to just over $1 million for the elegant 3,900 square foot penthouse suite. A typical townhouse in The Condominiums at Keyhole Bay is built with only the finest-grade materials, hand-crafted inside and out, set in a sea of manicured lawns, towering trees and lush vegetation. One of these, a two-story, 3,675 square foot seaside home, brings new meaning to the term “luxurious living.” Ensconced on the first and second floors of the nearly completed Tarvisio building, the lavish townhouse has two spacious bedrooms, with two and a half baths. On the first floor, the domed 10' x 10' entrance foyer opens into a 17' x 22' Great Room, with hand-laid travertine floors and walls ascending a full 24 feet up into the second floor loft. The Great Room continues on the outside of sliding window walls leading to a column-surrounded patio. The stateof-the-art kitchen is equipped with gleaming stainless steel appliances, hand-crafted cabinets of South American white teak, and a peninsula crowned with Spanish granite. The kitchen adjoins an expansive dining area crowned by a massive dome and bounded by massive arches. The second floor of this picturesque townhouse continues the Keyhole Bay keystone of elegance with a 16' x 16' master bedroom that opens onto a generous 481 square foot private balcony. From here, you not only can hear the sound of the rolling ocean, you can see the cresting waves as you enjoy your morning latte. Recently, the Chairman of Real Property Marketing Group, George Lane, visited Roatan and was thoroughly impressed with the Keyhole Bay development. Says Lane: “Rarely have I seen such care taken in the creation of a project. Dan Taylor’s painstaking efforts and commitment to quality ensure that Keyhole Bay is nothing short of first class.” Still not convinced? There’s nothing that proves the old adage that “seeing is believing.” To experience the Keyhole Bay lifestyle, consider a visit to the relaxing island of Roatan and judge for yourself what others have already discovered – “this is the place I want to call ‘home.’” Please visit or Roatan/index.php, or call our US number 228-533-2001 for additional information.

And, this city is home to some of the friendliest, most easy-going people on the planet. This imaginary place actually exists, and it’s one of the best kept secrets in America. Where is it? You’ll find our city deep in the heart of Texas. Austin – the Live Music Capital of the World, the heart of Silicon Hills and home of the University of Texas Longhorns – offers a lifestyle envied across the globe. The capital city of Texas, Austin lies in the center of the state, seventyfive miles from San Antonio and less than two hundred miles from Houston and Dallas. With a population of about 1.6 million people in the metro area, Austin offers the right balance of big city culture and small town charm. Add to that its natural beauty, a thriving economy and a burgeoning creative class, and it’s easy to see why Austin is consistently ranked as one of the best places to call home. U.S. News and World Report, Money 18

Magazine and Men’s Journal are just a few of the publications that have ranked Austin among the best places to live in the U.S. And, to the west and north of Austin stretches the gorgeous Texas Hill Country. The Hill Country offers some of the most beautiful scenery in Texas, including lakes, rivers and swimming holes for virtually endless water activities. The Hill Country’s Highland Lakes provide un-crowded waters and beautiful scenery for boaters. Whether you’re looking for a luxury downtown condo, a family home, a lake house or a weekend ranch, Austin and the Texas Hill Country are great places to call home. Abundant green space ranks among the top reasons why Austinites love their city, which boasts more than seventeen thousand acres of urban park land.

Austin offers plenty of indoor activities, too. Dubbed the “Live Music Capital of the World,” the city boasts more than two hundred live music venues. More than two thousand up-and-coming recording artists from around the world descend upon Austin for the highly-regarded South

Texas fosters this environment as there is no personal or business income tax, and the state government has taken steps to attract new businesses. Interestingly, Austin ranks as the fifth most educated city in the U.S., according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Austin enjoys a thriving economy bolstered by strong and diverse industries. Because Austin is the capital of Texas and the home of the University of Texas, the state government ranks high on the list of Austin-area employers. These state entities also attract a broad array of businesses to the area, from hotels and restaurants to law firms and lobbyists.

The cost of living index for Austin ranks below the U.S. average. One reason is Austin’s affordable housing market. In 2007, the National Association of Realtors reported that the median price of an Austin home was 16 percent lower than the national average.

Beyond the Capitol Building and the university, Austin has earned a reputation as a city of creativity, innovation and invention. An influx of high-tech companies beginning in the 1980s earned the Austin

Windy Hill Ranch Madisonville, Texas Have you thought about owning a ranch that was an easy drive from your Houston home…A place where you could go with your family and enjoy the “quiet” and actually see the stars at night…Have those cattle you’ve always wanted, count the new calves as they are born, help with the spring branding…A place you can ride your horses for hours over beautiful pastures, through creeks and old stands of trees, OR, train in a covered arena facility that is so nice you can have horse events there if you choose? Then there is the hunting and fishing to enjoy on these almost 3,000 acres. Fish in the many stocked ponds and lakes and enjoy your own white tail deer population during hunting season. Windy Hill Ranch offers you all of this. An easy drive from Houston to Madisonville, the access to Windy Hill is all paved highway and farm to market roads. If you love horses and love to ride, there will be no finer place than here. The covered arena facility has a 275' x 125' arena, office space, apartments, 16 stalls, holding pens for cattle―it is the finest facility in this part of Texas. There is a separate 10-stall center aisle barn with runs, numerous turn-out areas, lighted cutting pen, walker and much more. The cattle facilities are the top-of-the-line with hydraulic trim tilt squeeze chute and 10,000# Tru-Test scales. The improved pastures allow you to run a cow/calf or stocker operation. There are four large hay storage barns to house the hay that is grown on the ranch. At the end of the day, when that good kind of “tiredness” starts to take over, kick back on the porch or by the pool of the comfortable brick home that sits on the hilltop and appreciate the lifestyle!
