In Good Taste: Rafe Churchill Architecture

Gray kitchen with Green pendants- Rafe Churchill

Happy Tuesday, Design Chicers! (I am completely shocked that I have never thought of “Design Chicers” before. I think I’m using that from now on.) If you’re trying to escape from the cold today, escape with us–and the good taste of Rafe Churchill Architecture.

Gray kitchen with Farmhouse Sink - Rafe Churchill

Deep wood, dark counters, touches of brass… We’re feeling warmer already!

Farmhouse sink- Rafe Churchill

It is the details, as we all know, that make a home truly extraordinary, that take it from pretty to perfect. This sink is one of those details! Ditto those pulls.

large kitchen island - Rafe Churchill

We are firm believers that every room needs a touch of black, and we have a feeling that these architects and homeowners agree. The black bar stools are so chic!

farmhouse table with transitional chandelier - Rafe Churchill

Nothing warms us quite like the sun, and we are huge fans of all the windows in these lovely homes. This fixture is the perfect touch of whimsy.

gray kitchen with wood island - Rafe Churchill

Rustic wood… Soft grays… A pot of soup boiling on the stove… Every unique touch in this kitchen feels homey.

kitchen with butcher block island - Rafe Churchill

We’re always torn in the kitchen because, of course, we love to accessorize. But then again, there are so many things in the kitchen that take up space anyway. We love how this kitchen makes use of the fresh and the functional to add charm and depth.

farmhouse office - Rafe Churchill

I am currently in the process of designing my dream office–it won’t be this big, but I just need a tiny, cozy spot. And it is a LOT of pressure. You always dream about what you want your office to look like, but putting it down on paper and trying to visualize creating something from nothing… Well, it’s very fun but a little daunting. My must haves? My Delano desk from Currey & Co, major bookshelves, a fireplace and lots of light. These bookshelves are giving me lots of inspiration!

sewing room - Rafe Churchill

Seeing people’s charming craft rooms makes us wish we were crafty! We could pull out our sewing machine and whip up some new pillows or wrap a gift that would knock your socks off…

bathroom with oriental rug - Rafe Churchill

But, alas, it is not the case. We are, however, terrific at taking baths. (That’s something, right?)

bathroom with cowhide rug - Rafe Churchill

And this gorgeous room proves that bathtubs–and tile floors–don’t have to be white. We love the darker color combination here. It feels woodsy and warm.

farmhouse sunroom with shiplap ceiling - Rafe Churchill

This is the kind of place to spend a chilly day. Warm sun, cozy furniture, a snuggly throw… We could stay here and while away the afternoon… If only it weren’t time to pick up carpool! 

However you spend your afternoon, we hope it’s wonderful!
