In Good Taste: Historical Concepts

Brace yourself. Because today, we are featuring the good taste of Historical Concepts. And, when we say they are one of our very favorite architecture firms, that’s not something we take lightly.

We love the idea of a new house. Clean and crisp and built to our exact specifications. (Although, even thinking of what those exact specifications would be is kind of overwhelming…)

But, with a new build, sometimes you can risk looking a little generic.

But, as is abundantly clear from these photos, that’s not something that happens when Historical Concepts is at the helm.

They are masters of the new “old” house.

Just the right amount of charm and character is infused into every, single room.

Theirs is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We think Historical Concepts’ work is positively swoon worthy. Ditto this view. Whoa.

These are the kinds of homes that merge old and new so perfectly that we can’t impinge ever wanting to move anywhere else.

To shutters so beautiful they are works of art in themselves, Historical Concepts never overlooks a single detail. And, when creating your very own, one-of-a-kind place to spend your life, we’d say that’s a wonderful quality to have. 

Are you a fan of the new old house? Wishing you a wonderful day!

ThingsWeLove:KitchenBrass

House of Honey

We all know that trends come and go. Even those things that we once considered “classic,” can, from time to time, become passe. In fact, if you’d asked us how we’d feel about the return of brass a few years ago, our answers wouldn’t have been so positive. But, revamped, redone and better than ever, this sleek shade is just the thing to bring the kitchen right into the “now.” And, we certainly hope, into the future as well. Take a peek at better-than-ever brass in the kitchen. It may make you want to do a little updating of your own!
