InGood Taste:EmilySummersDesign

One glance at the work of Emily Summers Design, and it’s no surprise that the firm was just added to the AD 100. (If it’s good enough for Architectural Digest, it’s good enough for us!) Traditional design with modern touches that is always clean and uncluttered is a hallmark of this firm’s stunning work, and, of course, why we think they’re homes are in good taste.

Wow! What a view! We hope you’re enjoying the view today as well. Thanks for being with us!

In Good Taste:David Kleinberg Design

We always get so excited for Tuesdays because Tuesday means… the display of a truly fabulous talent! Tuesdays are all about truly good taste, and David Kleinberg is no exception.
His work is always suited to the exacting tastes of his often repeat clients. And we can see why. With rooms like this we’d come back for more too!
We don’t think we’ve ever seen a solid marble island before. Super cool!
These stainless cabinets and drawers are amazing. Just the right amount of chic reflection.
We adore this earthy color palette. 
There’s no denying that a dark, paneled den is one of our all-time favorite rooms. When it’s as exquisitely designed as this one it’s all the better.
What an inviting place to wind down after a long day!
Dining al fresco should be a daily event. Forget dining out. What’s more relaxing than a home-cooked meal in the fresh air?
For a fabulous paneled look with a fresh, bright feel, lightening up the stain is a good call. We love this library ladder!
A mirrored vanity is so glamorous. 
This is the type of room that takes a morning routine from mundane to marvelous. We hope your morning is starting just this same way!

Marble Countertops



1st Options

When it comes to kitchens, styles change. There are some we’re glad to see go — that means you, harvest gold and avocado green — and others we kind of wish would come back — designer white appliances perhaps? But when it comes to standing the test of time, linoleum, tile and even granite and quartz may come and go, but we think marble is one surface that stands the test of time.

Everyone warned me. I’ll admit it. I was told by everyone from the manufacturer to the installer that marble is not the most durable surface for a kitchen counter. But, when you get right down to it, some things in life are as much about aesthetics as they are about function.

So I did it anyway. And, it’s true. It gets etched. But what’s the point of having a beautiful kitchen if you can’t cook in it without being stressed? Plus, twice a year they come buff and re-seal it so it’s as good as new.

  We love marble sinks. So gorgeous.

These utilitarian light fixtures are amazing.

My husband and I should have added this feature to our kitchen. Someone always ends up washing a ton of produce in the bar sink!

These Mackenzie Childs canisters are so cute. Caroline on the Real Housewives of New Jersey has them in her house.

There’s nothing better than a kitchen with lighting galore. What a beautiful way to achieve it.

Those handles and hinges are so amazing. It really is the little things…

What a gorgeous spread — and chandelier. Who says the kitchen can’t sparkle?
Home Bunch
Yellow is our all-time favorite kitchen accent color. It’s just so happy, isn’t it? 
We hope you all have a yellow kind of day. 
Oh — and for those of you who tried to check out our guest post yesterday, we’re sorry! A little miscommunication. We’ll let you know when it’s up!
