House Tour: William Litchfield Architectural Designs

William Litchfield Designs living room with bookcases

 

Whether preserving history or creating it, our homes have a lot of legwork to do. William B. Litchfield Architectural Designs is masterful in assisting them with both. 

 

William Litchfield Designs family room with dining table

 

We are big fans of his work, and this Regency-Inspired Georgian Renovation caught our eye right away.

We have learned (sometimes the hard way) that it takes exactly the right kind of architect or designer to restore a historic gem, to bring something truly special back to life. William Litchfield Designs is just the team to take on the challenge.

It’s no wonder they received the 2016 Philip Trammell Shutze Award for this stunning home.  It is the perfect blend of old and new with spaces for everyone in the family.

This kitchen is, in a word, happy. Or, at least, it feels that way to us.

And we can imagine the guests gathered around this fire are happy too!

The light in this house is just spectacular, a sure sign of a great architect,

But the details truly shine. This closet is simply breathtaking, with a place for everything.

 

 

You know we’re big fans of interiors, but, in this case, we have to admit that, for us, the exterior stole the show.

 

 

Grand, gracious, elegant… These are just a few words that come to mind right off the bat. 

 

 

And, taking this lovely pool into account, we think we’d also have to add calm to the list. From every angle, in every space, this home is the ideal blend of old and new. We hope you loved touring it as much as we did!

Things We Love: Fabulous Outdoor Lanterns

Coats Homes

 

One of our favorite things is getting emails and questions from our readers. It gives us so much blog fodder and lets us know what’s on your minds.

We’ve noticed lately that outdoor lanterns have been a hot topic of discussion, which is great, because we’re wanting to discuss too!

In searching for the perfect lanterns for a client, for ourselves and for all of you, of course, we have come across so many fabulous things.

When it comes to choosing outdoor lanterns, everyone has an opinion. Some swear that lanterns should be only 1/5 of the height of the door, others land more on the 1/4 to 1/3 mark. This is one time where we’re on the bigger is better side of things. (Although, you know we love statement lighting in general, so this probably isn’t a surprise!)

 

T.S.Adams Studio

 

Of course, sometimes a pair of lanterns flanking a door simply won’t do. And thinking outside the box can be so glamorous. We are swooning over this lantern!

 

The Enchanted Home – Palmetto Bluff

 

And our friend Tina from the Enchanted Home always gets it right. (Of course, we’re biased because we have these same lanterns in brass!)

 

T.S. Adams Studios

 

The Governor from Bevolo (We know you’re going to ask, so we’re getting ahead of it!) is one of our favorite styles lately,

 

Studio McGee

 

And nothing–absolutely nothing–is as elegant and lovely to us as real gas lanterns. They’re a welcoming touch all the time!

Things We Love: A Gorgeous Garage

More than just a place to park your car, a garage — when done right — is an integral part of the home. We’re still in the planning stages of our addition,  and a gorgeous garage is on the top of our list for things we need — and inspired this post! Keeping our cars out of the salt air is great, sure. 

 

This one is particularly well done, we think. but there’s nothing better when it’s raining outside and you have a car full of kids, groceries, etc. than to be able to slide right in your door without getting a drop on you!  When it comes to garages, it’s all about the garage doors isn’t it? We love the charm of these carriage doors

Thanks so much for stopping by and making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!
