In Good Taste: Spitzmiller and Norris

Spitzmiller and Norris exterior

 

Good morning, chic readers! What is it about summertime? 

 

Spitzmiller and Norris exterior

 

Is is the memories of long, lazy childhood summers?

 

Spitzmiller and Norris exterior

 

The heat and sun and sand and salt? The bare feet and everything in bloom?

 

Spitzmiller and Norris exterior

 

Tall and stately, bright and breezy, cedar shake or painted brick, the designers at Spitzmiller and Norris make every home feel as perfect as…

 

Spitzmiller and Norris exterior

 

Well, a day by the pool. The perfectly designed, uber-chic pool, that is. 

 

Spitzmiller and Norris exterior

 

Double front porches like this always make us think of lazy days in the Lowcountry, sweet tea the only antidote for sweltering heat. 

 

Spitzmiller and Norris exterior

 

A getaway (or stay awhile) to the mountains keeps the summer heat at bay, cool mornings and nights and refreshing breezes making memories of sweltering days a thing of the past.

If you can’t take the heat, don’t stay out of the kitchen. Heavens no.

If you can’t take the heat, go in the kitchen. Open windows lend fresh breezes,

And a beautiful dining spot allows for cool, easy summer entertaining.

A stately and masculine retreat allows for playing inside games–like pool–until the cool breezes of pheasant season come back around. Indoors and out, in any season, the good taste of Spitzmiller and Norris speaks for itself.
