In Good Taste: Hernandez Greene Interior Design

Hernandez Greene entrance

If you’re like us, you believe that good taste never means just one thing. It can apply to a range of styles, a mix of materials and all sorts of different feels. Hernandez Greene Interior Design creates a variety of worlds for its clients, each one encapsulating a style–and a version of good taste–that reflects the family that lives within. We hope you enjoy these stunning rooms as much as we did!

What Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“[I]f I recommend one book to you this year (so far), let it be Slightly South of Simple for your first beach read. The darling and charming Kristy Woodson Harvey’s latest novel is the definition of a summer novel. I loved it almost as I love her.”–Jessica, Simply Bedazzled

and Spring Break dangerously, wonderfully close, we can’t help but get a little touch of spring fever.

 bamboo chairs

What better place to visit (even if it’s only on our computers!) for a little spring dreaming than Naples, Florida.

living room with desk

This gorgeous Naples vacation home is sophisticated and chic, the kind of place where you could live all year round, not just vacation.

dining room

Is it any surprise that one of our favorite designers, Summer Thornton, designed this stunner?

kitchen

A sleek and elegant kitchen with all the right details is a perfect spot for entertaining. (Because, try as we might, they’re never going to leave our kitchens!)

living room

This color palette feels cozy and warm–and different from anything else we’re seeing right now. We love it!

This piece is so perfect for those spaces where something with a back would feel too closed. Plus, it’s comfy extra seating!

bedroom with 4 poster bed

Each room is a little different from the last but the unifying themes in this home–like the color palette–makes it cohesive.

Wood paneling gives a nod to the beach nearby.

This canopy bed is so elegant. This bedroom feels like a getaway!

This gallery wall proves that it’s completely possible to do coastal without getting kitschy.

bathroom with porcelain freestanding tub

On vacation or just an ordinary day, this tub would feel like a vacation any time!

Because bathroom storage is always at a premium, we’re loving how these baskets not only take advantage of extra space but also add texture.

bedroom

A settee at the end of a bed is so sweet. And there’s enough seating to have a party in this room!

blue and white tile in outdoor kitchen

Florida should be fun! And this porch knows it. The blue and white tiles add a touch of whimsy.

porch with dining table

A pretty pool and lush landscaping lend a view worth coming back to. 

patio with chaise

From the kitchen to the bedrooms to the patio, blue and white porcelain is a unifying theme of this beautiful Naples getaway. If this beautiful coastal getaway doesn’t have you Spring dreaming, we don’t know what would! Where’s your favorite spring vacation spot?

Congratulations to Colette Darling, the winner of the $200 Framebridge Gift Card Giveaway! Stay tuned for our next fun giveaway.

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys. Kristy Woodson Harvey creates four women who are at once completely different yet utterly the same–and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Cassandra King, bestselling author of The Same Sweet Girls

Four Poster Beds Add Style to Any Bedroom

Architectural Digest photo: Peter Estersohn

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had a terrific weekend and are ready to start a wonderful week ahead. We don’t know about you, but we love Valentine’s Day. Or not even really the day so much as the whole Valentine’s season. 

Four poster beds in guest room
Cottages and Gardens Magazine

All the red and pink and gold glitter hearts and chocolate and wine everywhere. Everything for Valentine’s Day is so cute and chic and stylish now. This bedding is the perfect Valentine’s Day red…

Hamptons Cottages & Gardens

And this one is the perfect Valentine’s Day pink! We still remember being kids and and coming home with a huge bag full of paper Valentine’s sporting sappy sayings, some with candy, some with other Valentine’s trinkets. You never knew what you were going to find. It was wonderful!

What’s even better is the fabulous four poster beds. We don’t think many things add a sense of presence in a room quite like a substantial bed.

 French provincial four poster beds add old world elegance to a bedroom’s decor.

black and white bedroom
New England Home Magazine

Black with a touch of gold is an ever-elegant combination that adds so much style to a bedroom.

A beautiful four-poster like this fills up a larger bedroom with taller ceilings and accentuates the graceful roofline. It’s perfection! The pair of chests is perfectly proportioned too.

blue and white bedroom
McCann Design Group 

The four poster bed is incredibly versatile and, in a dark shade like this, is great for a boy’s bedroom–from toddler to teen and beyond.

green and white bedroom
Jenny Wolf Design 

Far from basic, four poster beds come in a variety of styles, sizes and materials to suit any bedroom space. We love everything about this beautiful bedroom!

Are you a fan of four poster beds? Wishing you a wonderful Valentine’s Day, no matter what you’re doing!

 

In Good Taste: Charles Hilton Architects

living room Charles Hilton Architects

Good morning, good morning, chic reader friends! We hope you are having a wonderful week. Ours is off to a terrific and busy start, which is really the best kind, if you ask us. 

living room Charles Hilton Architects

We are having a few days of weather in the 60s, which is a very happy occurrence for me, in particular, because, whether it’s 90 or -20 (Well, I mean, it’s NC, so it’s never -20…) I am outside playing tennis or golf or basketball, digging holes in the yard, finding bugs… Life with a little boy is never dull!

desk in bay window Charles Hilton Architects

The gorgeous designs of Charles Hilton Architects are never dull either, which is why we are always so excited to see what they come up with next!

kitchen Charles Hilton Architects

Are you big on open floor plans? Or are they not really your thing?

white kitchen Charles Hilton Architects

We always love chatting with designer friends about this because they tend to have a strong opinion one way or another. These rooms really straddle that line between open and closed, giving the airiness of a more open floor plan but still maximizing space.

office overlooking the water Charles Hilton Architects

This office is spectacular–and feels much more like being on one of the beautiful boats outside the window than inside a house. What a great feeling! (My boys would love this!)

blue and white dining room Charles Hilton Architects

Blue and white is a time-tested combination that can sometimes lean toward the more traditional side of things. The touches in this home give it that modern touch.(Did you see that lucite console and those benches? So cool!)

blue and white pool house Charles Hilton Architects

If there’s anywhere blue and white must live, it’s the pool house. This pool house remodel is so vibrant.

blue and white pool house Charles Hilton Architects

Fun patterns, textures and, of course, architectural details lend this pool house a fabulous personality.

guest bedroom Charles Hilton Architects

Speaking of personality. We’re loving everything about this room! Especially its versatility. The fabric and art are our favorite touches, but, if you took them away, the room would have a totally different–but still beautiful–feel. 

child's bedroom Charles Hilton Architects

Oh the views… Everything about this room is a cozy child’s haven that will grow as they do. We think a window seat should be mandatory for a child! I can’t count the number of hours I spend curled up in mine! (It’s no coincidence I have two in my grown-up house!)

blue and white bathroom

Just, yes… It’s all perfection!

pool and pool house Charles Hilton Architects

If the pool house is good the pool must be pretty great too, right? This one definitely doesn’t disappoint! And in only a short couple of months we can be lounging by one again! 

What’s your favorite Charles Hilton space?
