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. 

 

William Litchfield Designs dine-in kitchen

 

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,

 

William Litchfield Designs closet

 

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!

In Good Taste: Kaemingk Design

Kaemingk entry Kaemingk Design  

 

We read yesterday that most people give up on their New Year‘s Resolutions by January 12. 

 

Kaemingk design entry   

 

And we get it. We totally do. Change is hard, especially when it means doing things that we don’t really want to do in the first place. (Which seems to be what most of our resolutions focus on.)

 

Kaemingk design living room

 

But if your resolution was to do something different in your home this year, we’ve got you covered today.

 

Kaemingk design living room with gray linen sofa   

 

Sometimes you just want to do something special, to look around and think, “Wow. My house isn’t exactly the same as everyone else’s.”

  Kaemingk kitchen  

Kaemingk Design has a knack for combining the old and the new, for not shying away from age, patina or a good story, which, as we all know, every home should have.

  Kaemingk kitchen  

But we’re especially impressed with their motto: “To create spaces that become more beautiful as they age.”

  Kaemingk kitchen  

In a world where the disposable is valued and beauty can be fleeting, it’s nice to think of creating something that stands the test of time and is actually even better as it ages. 

  Kaemingk bench  

To that end, in these stunning designs, antique touches are always welcome. This bench and bag add a collected feeling.

  Kaemingk bedroom  

We are huge fans of black and white art–our friend Kendall Boggs rocks at it–and this is the perfect look for a master bedroom.

  Kaemingk bathroom with white subway tile and brass hardware  

Brass in the shower is always welcome,

  Kaemingk bathroom  

And mixing tile styles is a simple way to add interest in a bathroom!

  Kaemingk bathroom  

A custom sink lends space for two–and blends seamlessly with the rest of the house.

  Kaemingk bathroom  

Talk about unique! This sink is truly like nothing we’ve ever seen.

  Kaemingk curb appeal  

A pretty exterior is accentuated with landscaping that is perfectly in keeping with the tone.

  Kaemingk curb appeal  

We love the simple color palette and unique touches. 

  Kaemingk curb appeal  

The exterior of a Kaemingk-designed home blends seamlessly with the interior–and we couldn’t love it more. Resolving to be inspired this year? Mission accomplished.

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by!

Bathing with a view is such a luxury–especially in a bathroom this gorgeous.

This unique bathroom is a reminder that spaces don’t have to be cookie cutter–and that there’s always a way to make it work.

Good morning, chic readers! Do you have a Thanksgiving-ready kitchen yet?

 I bought my turkey tonight, and it’s thawing in the fridge as we speak.

Truth be told, we’re eating out this year. We’re not quite back in our house yet, but are already looking forward to hosting the crew around our own table next year. We’re super lucky that both sides of the family love each other, so everyone comes to us! (Another reason to live at the beach if you need one.)

So why the turkey? Leftovers, of course! (You can’t have a Thanksgiving-ready fridge without leftovers!) I love the ease of eating out for Thanksgiving but hate not having delicious turkey to nibble on and make sandwiches with the rest of the week.

Crazy? Maybe.

But, on the bright side, it will ensure that I get my Thanksgiving-ready kitchen, even if it is just at a rental house.
