In Good Taste: Thomson & Cooke Architects

Thomson & Cooke Architects entrance

Good morning! Flo blew the roof off, felled two chimneys, which caused interior water damage, but we’re all safe and sound and can’t thank everyone enough for their concern. Looking forward to being home for good soon!  We are getting our dose of good taste this Tuesday with the beautiful, classically chic style of  Thomson & Cooke. From soothing neutrals to updated metallics, beautiful built-ins to peerless porches, indoors or out, it’s hard to pick a favorite space.  Take a peek!

House Tour: Historic Beauty in Mill Valley

Mill Valley house

If you aren’t familiar with the talented team at G.P. Schafer Architects yet, you definitely need to keep reading!  Their portfolio is so bursting with gorgeous homes that it was hard to choose which to showcase first. But one look at this Mill Valley House, and we knew it was the one. The young couple who purchased the home wanted to maintain the original charm of this 1870s stunner while updating it for modern living. Take a peek and you’ll see that GPSA achieved just that!

In Good Taste: Architect John B. Murray

John B. Murray Architect entrance

John B. Murray, Architect via Dering Hall

One of our favorite things about John B. Murray’s architectural designs is that he always keeps and eye on the view. From expansive fields of green, 

John B. Murray Architect living room

To a sparkling water vista, 

John B. Murray Architect living room

To the cityscape to end all cityscapes,

He designs homes that work with the environment around them–

And suit the needs of the families within their walls. 

John B. Murray, Architect kitchen

From an expansive eat-in kitchen, 

John B. Murray, Architect hallway

To a spectacular upstairs nook, 

John B. Murray, Architect bathroom

An outstanding paneled bath and closets, 

John B. Murray, Architect bathroom

To a light, bright, glass-filled haven, 

John B. Murray, Architect pool

This architect creates spaces that simply beg to be lived in.

Outstanding outdoor spaces,

And breathtaking facades are two of the hallmarks of this architect.

And his designs are as diverse as the families within their walls.

We can’t think of a better place to welcome us home at night–and we can’t get enough of the good taste of this extraordinary architect. Can you?
