In Good Taste: Wolfe Rizor Interiors

We all know that home should be a sanctuary, but Wolfe-Rizor Interiors makes it a part of their mission. Clean, crisp palettes and looks with staying power are only a part of the reason we think these designers’ work is in good taste. Take a look at some of these gorgeous rooms. We think you’ll feel right at home!

We’d like to have a nice, long soak here… We hope you all have a wonderful day!


In Good Taste: Andrew Skurman

So we know, we know: you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But, sometimes, good taste is evident before you even get inside.
And so it is with Andrew Skurman Architects. The outside is undeniably divine…
But delve deeper, and it just keeps getting better.
This fridge is definitely our taste. 
If there’s anything better than farmhouse sinks, it’s double farmhouse sinks! (If you want more, check out this post 🙂 )
We love antique linens, and our bathrooms overflow with them. But our kitchens? Never thought of it. Seems like a good new plan!
It’s nice to be reminded that great adventure is only a sail away.
Whoa. Right?
This palette is so soothing and elegant.
There are no words for this closet. What a dream!
A bubble bath in a fabulous tub like this is the perfect way to end a long day.
Another cover that, we must admit, we’re judging. We give it a 10! 
Thanks for visiting us today!


Beautiful Bathroom Showers

For better or worse, it’s a place we spend time every, single day.
Crisp Architects


For many of us, it’s the first thing we see in the morning…


Marble walk-in shower
So, since we spend so much time in them, we may as well go the extra distance to make that time well spent, even, dare we say, inspirational.
I have to admit, I usually get my best ideas in the shower!

That being said, as I’ve mentioned before, it’s definitely time for a master remodel over at my house.

Something like this may be out of the question. Isn’t it so soothing, though?

Something like this shower stall may be a tad easier of a transformation… As you know, I’ve been debating whether to replace my brass shower door or work it into the new scheme.

This bathroom definitely thinks outside the box. I’d never even considered using something that wasn’t a typical shower door.

Tea for two… Shower for two… That’s a lot of togetherness!

This is our kind of shower! Light, bright, simple and sparklingly clean! Which shower is your favorite? 
Happy Friday, friends! We hope you all have a great start to your weekend!

In Good Taste: BPC Architects

Oh. My. Goodness. Couldn’t you just melt into this room? 
Gorgeous living rooms, fabulous kitchens of any size and creative ideas for every style home are just a few of the things that make BPC Architects’ designs in such good taste.
We love the juxtaposition of the Venetian mirrors and white marble with the more rustic wood and paneling.

These built-in beds are amazing and give so much privacy! 
We just love white subway tile… and everything else in this kitchen!
Fabulous island!
We love the nautical touches in this bar.
We would want to eat every, single meal on this fabulous porch!
Louis ghost chairs are one of our favorite things.
We hope you’re all having a fabulous week! Thanks for stopping by!
