This unique event will be located at the Harwood Museum, open from 10am - 5pm. Twelve local designers will create arrangements of all-natural materials to complement paintings from the museum’s collections. Raffle tickets for each arrangement will be available for purchase and the drawings will be held at 4:30. Winners will be notified Saturday evening and the arrangements must be picked up Sunday morning.
The following private gardens & homes on the tour will be open from 9am - 4pm.
This large and gracious home was once the house and studio of E. Martin Hennings of the Taos Society of Artists. Built in 1926 and later remodeled by Joan Houghston, it is listed in the Historical Register.
The multi-story windows in the great room provide light to complement the artwork and also overlook the huge old willow trees for which the property is named. Double kitchens and dining rooms built when the residence was a B&B make this home perfect for entertaining.
This mountain-top hide- away surprises guests with expansive 360° views of mountains, mesas, and valleys. A multilevel residence, this home has been remodeled and enlarged twice to include large, gracious entertaining spaces both inside and out. Textile art, paintings, and sculpture collected around the world excite the eye at every turn. Especially note the wealth of art by local artists.
This tile-roofed two-story adobe is only four years old, but the well-established gardens cared for by the homeowners make guests think the home is older. Two-story windows were specially designed to capture the view of Taos Mountain and show off the walled formal gardens in the enclosed space. The upstairs suite affords breathtaking views of the mountains and mesa. A walk in the garden leads you to the professional weather station monitoring Taos weather year round.
A sprawling contemporary adobe, surrounded by acres of lawn, formal garden, and naturalized native plants, invites guests to feel right at home. A putting green, hot tub, and fully equipped gymnasium complete this dream package.
Don't miss the Garden Club Boutique located in the portal. Shop for garden and home accessories, many of which are created by local artisans, that convey the ambiance of Taos.
