In Good Taste: RobertA.M.SternArchitect

When it comes to stunning design, mastering that particular combination of timeless charm and modern appeal is a delicate balancing act. Robert A.M. Stern’s team of architects, landscape architects and interior designers makes it look effortless, as evidenced by these stunning photos. (Their namesake is, after all, dean of the Yale School of Architecture.) We hope you’ll agree that, from floor to ceiling and everything in between, these architects’ work is in good taste.
What we love most about these architects is that, while everything is clean and classic, each room contains just a touch of something out of the ordinary. The rope swings on this sunroom are to die for!
The extra built-in sides on this window seat are just a bit different.
Boring ceilings? No way!
The combination of the old and new in this bathroom appeals to us so much. It’s glamorous and relaxing at the same time. We wouldn’t be afraid to mess it up!
Blue gray cabinet doors are stunning by the sea. 
Even the staircase is a work of art.
A built-in nook is just the best! What a beautiful spot for a guest!
We hope your Wednesday is going great!

Center-Stage Soaking

Stephen Sills Design
Oh, the tub. It’s arguably the best part of any bathroom, so why are we always content to store it away in the corner like it’s the opening act, not the main event?
this pretty space
These bathtubs, far from ordinary ceramic hidden by a plastic curtain, are so fantastic they deserve to be on display. This one is like canoeing in the fall air without ever even leaving the porch!

And bathing with a view? Yes, please. We bet that copper holds heat like crazy, even on a chilly morning.

Speaking of copper, it seems to work pretty well in a more traditional bathing space as well.
Four Walls and a Roof
Perhaps it’s a side-effect of the up-all-night-with-baby delirium, but we can’t think of anything more divine than diving into this beauty and soaking up the view. Plus, it goes without saying that we are huge fans of a chandelier in the bathroom.

So old-fashioned and so fabulous. There is nothing like rustic charm.

With a view like this, why wouldn’t you situate the tub to accommodate it?
Lonny
We love this combination of chrome and mirrors. It’s so sleek.
Jessica Hall Associates
This is perhaps our favorite of the bunch. Gold, a claw foot that really makes a statement and that ceiling… Who wouldn’t want to bathe in her own personal Sistine Chapel?

Turquoise, Tulips and Bliss
We’d like to be watching The Today Show in this tub this morning! We hope you all have a fantastic, relaxing Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by!
