In Good Taste: Charles Hilton Architects

living room Charles Hilton Architects

Good morning, good morning, chic reader friends! We hope you are having a wonderful week. Ours is off to a terrific and busy start, which is really the best kind, if you ask us.

We are having a few days of weather in the 60s, which is a very happy occurrence for me, in particular, because, whether it’s 90 or -20 (Well, I mean, it’s NC, so it’s never -20…) I am outside playing tennis or golf or basketball, digging holes in the yard, finding bugs… Life with a little boy is never dull!

The gorgeous designs of Charles Hilton Architects are never dull either, which is why we are always so excited to see what they come up with next!

Are you big on open floor plans? Or are they not really your thing?

We always love chatting with designer friends about this because they tend to have a strong opinion one way or another. These rooms really straddle that line between open and closed, giving the airiness of a more open floor plan but still maximizing space.

This office is spectacular–and feels much more like being on one of the beautiful boats outside the window than inside a house. What a great feeling! (My boys would love this!)

blue and white dining room Charles Hilton Architects

Blue and white is a time-tested combination that can sometimes lean toward the more traditional side of things. The touches in this home give it that modern touch.(Did you see that lucite console and those benches? So cool!)

blue and white pool house Charles Hilton Architects

If there’s anywhere blue and white must live, it’s the pool house. This pool house remodel is so vibrant.

Fun patterns, textures and, of course, architectural details lend this pool house a fabulous personality.

Speaking of personality. We’re loving everything about this room! Especially its versatility. The fabric and art are our favorite touches, but, if you took them away, the room would have a totally different–but still beautiful–feel. 

child's bedroom Charles Hilton Architects

Oh the views… Everything about this room is a cozy child’s haven that will grow as they do. We think a window seat should be mandatory for a child! I can’t count the number of hours I spend curled up in mine! (It’s no coincidence I have two in my grown-up house!)

blue and white bathroom

Just, yes… It’s all perfection!

If the pool house is good the pool must be pretty great too, right? This one definitely doesn’t disappoint! And in only a short couple of months we can be lounging by one again! 

What’s your favorite Charles Hilton space?
