InGoodTaste:WendyPosardAssociates

There’s a lot to be said for the way a home looks, sure.
But, for us, it’s even more about the way a space makes us feel.
Relaxed, calm, happy, content…
Those are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind when we consider how we would most like to be when in the places we spend the most time.
Those are the same adjectives that come to mind when we view these gorgeous spaces designed by Wendy Posard and Associates.
The team’s interiors are clean yet finished, soothing yet energetic.
When we feel like we’re looking in a room where we’d like to sit and stay awhile, that’s how we know we’ve found something that’s in good taste!
Everything about this kitchen is amazing, but the floor really takes the cake! So cool!
That classic black and white is an unbeatable combination, even in the kitchen. And we love our flowers just like this: fresh, fragrant and far from contrived.
But, then again, some spaces are simply magical all on their own…
The ideal combination of a perfect view from the inside out and the outside in!
The mixed materials in this house add charm and undeniable curb appeal. It’s so very inviting!
Speaking of inviting… You’re all invited to visit our friend Mary Ann at Classic Casual Home! www.classiccasualhome.com! She is hosting a giveaway to help Ugandan women widowed by AIDS support themselves and their children. What an amazing cause!
Thanks, everyone, for visiting us today. We appreciate you all so much!

House Tour: Beaufort Update!

 So, you know we’re dedicating our Wednesdays to house tours. We thought this Wednesday might be a good time to give you a little update on the Beaufort house! If you’re thinking What? This is PROGRESS! check out our before pictures here and here. Obviously, this is only primer on the walls and a couple of spindles have been painted white to test. But it’s amazing how big of a difference just a little white paint can make!
 Our original plan was to rip out this fireplace and start over. As it turns out, it was going to be a major structural deal, so we’re experimenting with other options. It’s amazing what an eyesore it was before and how much better just this little tester paint looks! 
 Dark half bath door primed! 
 The upstairs master bath is painted, and I am obsessed with this color. It’s one of the only times in my life I walked into a room and thought, “Yup. Nailed that paint choice.”

Here’s another view.
 The floors up here were painted brown, so we’re exploring some options. They might possibly be able to be sanded and refinished, but we’re trying a little white paint just in case it doesn’t work. We love it! It’s so fresh. 
 The bathroom has been painted too. And, no, this fabulous chair isn’t staying… We’ll auction it off to the highest bidder 🙂

Untold baths are going to happen here, just admiring the view out the window!
 Little Will’s bathroom tile is finished as well!
 We think the gray grout looks great!
 Laundry room! It’s small for a reason, people.
 The lighting is clearly not finished in Will’s room. Sorry for the horrible pictures.
 We might seal these window frames off and leave them looking rustic. We think it would pair well with the built-in ships beds. This is one of those times, like normal, where we walked in and thought: “We picked that color…”
The blue lines in the hall wall are the site of the future third floor demo, affectionately named the “stairway to heaven.” And, let us tell you, when you get out on that widow’s walk, you feel pretty close to it! We’re hoping to bust that ceiling out this week.
The floors in the kitchen/mudroom are down. We can’t wait to see this place with a pair of chaises!
We’ve come a long way, baby. 
As a reminder, here’s the old kitchen. Ahhh, memories!
The upstairs guest room with shiny, new paint! Is it weird that I miss the pink walls?
Mom and Dad’s bathroom floor is down and the tub and tile — sans grout — are in! 
Shew! We can’t wait to show you even more progress in a week or two when we go back to check on things. 
We’ve still got a ways to go, but it’s safe to say that this project will be finished one day… Thanks for visiting us today. We hope you’re having a wonderful day!
