Things We Love: A Shingled House

Patrick Ahearn Architect

 

With summer weather right around the corner (Mother Nature-willing!), we can’t stop thinking about coastal style.

Nothing creates that quintessential beach feel quite like a gorgeous shingled house

From New England to North Carolina, there’s nowhere that this stunning style doesn’t fit right in.

We are completely convinced that putting cedar shakes on anything will instantly make it charming.

And a splash of other beautiful architectural details doesn’t hurt either!

While keeping it neutral feels stately and chic.

A shingled house practically calls for a perfectly manicured yard, doesn’t it?

Even in a home where shingles don’t cover every inch, we think they steal the show–and add interest to an exterior in droves.

Another favorite of ours? Cedar roofs, of course!

This home looks like the perfect place to spend the summer–or at least a week or so of it.

Are you planning any summer escapes this year?

Dogs and Design

Dogs in Design
Architectural Digest

 

They are some of the most cherished members of the family and have an important place in our homes–and in our hearts.

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

If you’re a dog lover then you know we have to think about our four-legged friends when designing our homes! Bare floors like these make for easy shedding clean up.

And, well, we all know Rover isn’t going to be content to sleep on the floor when he can snuggle all night! Easy-to-wash duvets and coverlets are a must in a dog-loving family.

Michael S. Smith

 

In homes with pets, the furniture has to be a little tougher–at least tough enough to withstand your pooch’s toenails and daring jumps!

And easy-to-clean-and-vacuum fabrics are a must so that your best friend doesn’t have to compromise his or her favorite lounging spot!

BHG

 

Let’s face it, our dogs make our homes look–and feel–better. From a cozy bed all his own to a cute doggie door to make his daily commute from indoors to out a breeze, we love the idea of making our homes work better for our dogs too!

A statement-making dog deserves a statement-making rug–with a matching collar, of course!

10 Favorite Covered Porches

With the beginning of school right around the corner and summer promising to transform into fall at any moment, one thing is for sure: It’s porch sitting season!

Urban Grace Interiors

You know we love outdoor spaces that are an extension of our indoor ones, and while summer entertaining outdoors can be so much fun, it’s really the fall when those perfect crips evenings beckon us outdoors.

Whether dining with a group of treasured friends…

But the thing we covet most of all, the thing on our porch wishlist, is an amazing hanging bed.

If you need a good read while you’re relaxing on your porch, why not check out my national bestselling Slightly South of Simple? But don’t take our work for it! Check out what After Orange County is saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“[J]ust as I had anticipated, it was a delight to read. The good news is that this book is the first of a series that Kristy is writing called the Peachtree Bluff Series, so we now have much more to look forward to! As the mother of 3 boys, I could relate to the mother character in this story, Ansley, who is the strong matriarch of 3, not-so-simple adult daughters. Each one of Ansley’s daughters come home to their roots, the seemingly idyllic southern seaside town called Peachtree Bluff.  The story weaves its way through the characters’ lives, each with their own unique & individual challenges.” — Celia, After Orange County
