In Good Taste: Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects

 Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects entrance

Ike Kligerman Barkley Architect – IKBA

 

If you’ve ever built a house, you know that architecture is everything. 

 

 Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects living room

 

The way a home sits on a lot to take advantage of the morning sun,

 

Ike Kligerman Barkley dining room

 

The addition of beams and built-ins to a make an open concept feel cozy and just separated enough, 

 

Ike Kligerman Barkley family room

 

The brilliant way that the right paneling, the right molding and the right accents can make even a new house feel like it has a sense of history

 

Ike Kligerman Barkley family room

 

The stunning portfolio of Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects never ceases to amaze us.

Their work proves that the little things–like figuring out how to make the very most of a small space–are actually everything.

From indoor spaces that capitalize on both a charming slanted roofline and a killer view, 

 

Ike Kligerman Barkley porch

 

To a chic porch that doubles as the ultimate living space, 

 

Ike Kligerman Barkley porch

 

To a multi-purpose indoor/outdoor space with so much personality it almost has a pulse, these architects have a knack for creating truly unforgettable spaces

 

Ike Kligerman Barkley pool

 

We need a vacation in this exact spot, immediately if not sooner!

Because the only thing better than unforgettable indoor spaces is their outdoor counterparts.

What is your favorite Ike Kligerman Barkley space?

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

In Good Taste: Winter McDermott Design

Good morning, chic readers! After almost a week in Manhattan, surrounded by Christmas windows and the Rockettes and the tree at Rockefeller Center and letters from Santa, we are very much in the Christmas spirit! Are you? 

That said, in the midst of the “more is more” of the holiday season, sometimes it’s nice to take a breather. 

We may be surrounded by trees and lights and garland and boxes and bows, but the good taste of Winter McDermott is nothing if not a study in beautiful simplicity. 

Perfectly pared and clean, clean, clean, it’s exactly the kind of design that can clear a cluttered mind. 

The beautiful work of Maureen McDermott is all about bringing modern design to the Hamptons

(Plus, what could be better this time of year then showcasing a design firm called Winter?) 

After studying under Vincente Wolf–and designing projects including 15 Union Square West, a dramatic 12-story condominium in the historic Tiffany & Co. building–modern, unique design is something she knows a thing or two about. 

From family rooms that delight the senses, 

To nooks that wow, 

Guest rooms that company will never want to leave, 

To a place for partying outdoors all year round, 

Indoors and out, the work of Winter McDermott is always in good taste!

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

In Good Taste: Amy Aidinis Hirsch Interior Design

Good morning, chic readers! We’re in full hurricane hysteria here in NC–and, unfortunately, the lines at the gas stations and empty bread aisles seem justified this year.

But, on the bright side, there’s nothing like a little good taste to take your mind off the chaos!

Amy Hirsch Interior Design

And if anyone can do just that, it’s Amy Aidinis Hirsch Interior Design!

The perfect blend of elegance,

And laid-back style, 

Amy Hirsch Interior Design

Unique details, 

Amy Hirsch Interior Design Kitchen

And classic touches,

This designer’s taste hits all the high notes of style.

From an eclectic white kitchen,

With chic wood accents,

A statement ceiling,

To an unforgettable backsplash,

Amy Aidinis Hirsch creates unexpected spaces with unforgettable elements that combine in the perfect way.

From a statement nook,

To a too-good-to-be-true bathroom.

Indoors or out, these homes are the perfect places to relax after a long day and dream of the sunny skies ahead after the storm!

Hoping everyone in the path of Hurricane Florence stays safe!

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

 

Today, we are carrying everyone who lost friends or loved ones on September 11 in our hearts. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We will never forget.

In Good Taste: Andrew Flesher Design

Andrew Flesher Interior Design via Dering Hall

 

Good morning, chic readers! We’re heading to NYC today (Hooray!), so this seemed like a fun day to focus on a New York designer–with plenty of good taste.

From the bright and bold

To the stately and sedate, 

With offices in New York and Minneapolis, 

Andrew Flesher Interior Design truly creates homes that meet its owners’ needs, no matter the location or the style. 

From a chic city spot that is big on style,  

MH44XC5

To a modern dining room with notes of the classic, 

MH12XD4

These designers understand that, sometimes, the little things are the big things–like this fun twist on an old favorite chair. 

From sweet coastal style with plenty of pop,

To bold stripes that define a sleeping area,

To a refined master that anyone would love, 

We’re huge fans of all these designers’ spaces. 

Not surprisingly, they do the outdoors just as well as they do the indoors.

We can’t think of a better place to spend an evening, no matter the season.

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We hope you enjoyed the good taste of Andrew Flesher Interior Design as much as we did!

Things We Love: Colorful Gardens

With the days growing longer and the sun getting warmer, we are savoring every moment we have outside–especially after such a cold, harsh winter. We don’t know about you, but we’re focusing on keeping our yards blooming for summer right now. We love flowers and bright blooms and pretty colors intermixed, and when it comes to curb appeal, there is nothing quite like adding color to the garden. Check out a few of our favorite colorful gardens and gain a bit of inspiration of your own!
