House Tour: Sea Island Builders

Charm, charm, charm, charm, charm! We’d say that’s the theme of this idyllic cottage. The perfect shade of blue and those quintessential South Carolina palm trees are just the beginning. Wait until you step through the front door!

In Good Taste: Giannetti Home

The fabulous architecture and interior designs of Giannetti Home truly speak for themselves. But if you need a little more clarification, we think this sums it up nicely: “We believe in homes with emotion, the power of natural light, in a modern sense of space, in a simple palette of materials and the power of antiques to convey history, that classical proportions hold the key to beauty and that a little romance is a good thing.” Now that’s in good taste!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

InGoodTaste:GeoffChick

The architects and designers of Geoff Chick and Associates have our number this week, as we’re prepping for market and getting our minds set for a coastal — but not too coastal — interior scheme for the Beaufort house.
A splash of water blues and greens paired with neutrals is a color scheme we can always get on board with… and just one of the many, many reasons that we think Geoff Chick and Associates work is in such good taste!
A touch of nautical chic without being over the top is so cute. These built-in bunks and old sails are perfect!
Screened porch living is essential for backyard barbecues and mosquito-free entertaining. 
Exposed wood is such an old-school touch in any coastal home. 
Combining that wood with blues and whites gives it a throwback feel white maintaining the light, airy openness that makes a space feel so good.
Statement lighting? Check!
Open staircases are so fabulous! We can just see wet little feet racing up these…
That new home with tons of charm can be so hard to achieve…
But we think Geoff Chick and Associates does it just right!
Happy Tuesday, friends! Thanks for visiting us today!
P.S. We finally joined the world of Twitter today so we can send you real-time updates of all our fabulous finds at the High Point Market! Just hit the “follow us” button on the right hand side of the screen to stay up to date 🙂

In Good Taste: Architect Matthew Sapera

We hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing Easter holiday! We’re getting back into the swing of things today enjoying the fabulous taste of architect Matthew Sapera
We adore the detail work and molding on these walls. It goes to show that, with the proper touches, white walls are anything but boring.
Ahhhh… what a gorgeous place for a bubble bath. Simply striking.
Who couldn’t use more closet space? We know we sure could. We adore the idea of everything being hidden by matching doors like these. It’s so streamlined.
Painted paneling is one of our favorite looks, especially in a beach house. It’s a way for even a new house to feel like a bit of a throwback.
We put a black and white striped rug like this in baby Will’s playroom, and we love it! It’s such a bold statement on the floor. Aren’t those black stools amazing? The design is so striking and creates extra seating without taking up visual space. That’s especially important when there is a gorgeous view on the other side!
The perfect place for catching up! That campaign chest looks like it was made for that spot. We love little nooks like that!

The neutrals in this kitchen make it feel so clean. That is one of the most important attributes of a good kitchen, after all.
Frameless shower doors make a bathroom feel so much bigger!
Using painted paneling and beams on this vaulted ceiling makes it feel more spacious without seeming cavernous. The splashes of green make a great statement.
Thanks for stopping by today!

In Good Taste: 3North

One glimpse at the exterior of this gorgeous home, and it’s easy to see that 3North’s choices are in good taste.
A team of architects, landscape architects and interior designers, this group doesn’t seem to miss a detail.
Growing things has never been our forte, but we think our luck might change if we had a gorgeous greenhouse like this.
A perfectly manicured garden makes a home feel neat and orderly.
The shape of these couches is so fabulous, as are the pops of color.
A sitting area in a kitchen is such a nice touch. It’s where everyone spends most of their time anyway.
We would spend all our time in the conservatory. Nothing is better than coffee and a bite of breakfast bathed in morning light.
There’s nothing cooler than a free-hanging staircase. The railings on this one are super chic — and even little hands have a place to hold on!
What a perfect spot for a cocktail with friends. We hope your day ends with a nice break in a spot just this lovely.
