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!

Things We Love: Farmhouse Sinks

farmhouse sinks in kitchen
The Wiseman Group via Dering Hall

 

This is the time of year we always start dreaming about a farmhouse. The weather starts to get colder (Well, theoretically… It’s still 75 degrees, but that can’t possibly last forever.) and it has us dreaming of cowboy boots and Barbour jackets, bonfires and oyster roasts, all in the comfort of our very own acreage with a charming little cabin. So, no, we’re probably not going to be acquiring a farmhouse any time soon. But why not daydream about the next best thing:  farmhouse sinks! Perfect for washing all those homegrown vegetables, (or, you know, the ones you bought…) it’s as close as your kitchen can get to the fields. Unless, of course, it is actually in the fields… In which case, we’d love to come visit! Take a peek at these gorgeous farmhouse sinks and let us know what you think!

MORE ABOUT The Secret to Southern Charm Book 2 of the Peachtree Bluff Series:

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically-acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances that proves why she is the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

 

Coastal Charm On Sea Island

Sea Island Cottage

Good morning, friends! Welcome to Sea Island, Georgia! Yes. It’s just as beautiful as it sounds.

Sea Island, Georgia abstract-art

And this house? We’d say firmly, firmly in the beautiful category as well.

Sea Island, Georgia seagrass-rug

This is our favorite rug for any room, from dressy to casual and everything in between. This is the type of room that this rug was made for.

abstract-art Sea Island, Georgia

The stunning art gives a nod to the sea. We are big fans of these corals!

Sea Island, Georgia kitchen

Things fresh and green of all varieties are a lovely touch in this clean, white kitchen.

Lucite and modern art add sophistication to this coastal home.

There are really no words for this view. Have you ever?

This entire house is simplicity at its finest. The neutrals are dreamy and the textures bring the home to life.

And, oh, the splashes of soothing blue… We want to move in immediately.

bedroom Sea Island, Georgia

Luxe linens make this bedroom feel like a fabulous retreat while the wide stripes and fun prints keep it casual.

marble Sea Island, Georgia

We love a good herringbone floor, but usually think of it in terms of hardwoods. This marble is stunning.

porch Sea Island, Georgia

With a view this gorgeous, who would ever want to go inside? We know we wouldn’t!

As if the inside wasn’t gorgeous enough, the outside of this lovely Sea Island home is simply stunning.

We adore the water blue and shutters and the beautiful contrast of the dark wood door agains the light exterior.

It’s coastal while still feeling like the perfect place to call home all year round. The palm trees are the icing on the cake! We hope you enjoyed this Sea Island stunner. Thanks so much for making us a part of your day!
