So Shear...

Shear panels...yea or nay? With the right bed and in the right room, I say yes. I feel they warm the space and make it a more intimate place.

Divine is this Hampton home reborn by Steven Gambrel.

Kitchen Love...

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles recently showcased some kitchens of the year. These two are my favorite. I love the how the dark wood of the beams, floor, and island play against the bright white of the cabinetry and subway tile walls. Other details that make me swoon are the apron front sink, the light fixtures, and the gray color and hardware in the butler's pantry!

In this kitchen the pale blue-green on the walls and island open up the space. And I love that the hood and pantry are hidden within the cabinetry, the soapstone countertop on the island is yummy, and the seeded glass door leading to the butler's pantry is divine.

Texas Cabin...

This Texas Hill country getaway was redesigned to hold a growing family that needed more room. Texas Architect Trey Rabke reimagined his family's getaway, since he was coming to as a child, to fit into the surrounding 90 acres it sat upon. Rabke maintained the original spirit of the cabin and built on the original footprint; keeping one important feature, the long, deep porch bookend by a massive rough-sewn limestone hearth. To keep with the region he used native cypress for construction, and even galvanized water troughs for bathtubs. Even though it is a new house, it still has the same since of family as the first cabin.
