Hello everyone! Hope you had a wonderful and restful weekend. With my back being out, restful is about the only thing my weekend was. Headed to round 2 of acupuncture yesterday which generally has worked however this time I needed more so went to my orthopedist and am now on prednisone and painkillers….fingers crossed this will bring my much needed relief. Onto one of my favorite subjects, architecture and design. The first time I saw a house designed by Geoff Chick, I knew I needed to know more. I was intrigued, fascinated and in awe because he had singlehandedly designed what to me is the perfect idea beach/coastal home.? I have since discovering him dreamed about designing a beach or lake house with him as he seems to have mastered that “low country” coastal elegant home vibe to perfection that I so love. Truly talented, I am an official fan. When I am excited about “meeting” someone new, I in turn want to share it with you too. So thought this was a name worth remembering….you never know and it’s fair to say someone out there is in? the process of building, renovating, considering a new build, etc…and this is a name worth knowing! So without further adue, here is Geoff’s work.…. What kid would not be head over heels to sleep in this ultra cool bunk room! I could literally live in a room like this! Always like seeing “dead space” like landings get used so beautifully! Is this a dreamy coastal kitchen or what! Seaside perfection if you ask me. Great rooms like this which combine both a living room and family room are such smart uses of space I love the vibe of this space for a beach/coastal home Really love the feeling of this open concept….so conducive to great gatherings of family and friends Yes I could see hosting all kinds of fun get togethers in this fabulous space I love his clever and unique door design to the shower…fabulous! A typical gorgeous coastal home of Geoff Chick Absolutely LOVE everything about this home! Yes yes and yes! This is about the size I would want….not too big and not too small. Even on a small scale, he gets it right! What did I tell you…amazing! I have so many favorites I frankly lost count:) He is one talented architect. I love his “signature” of the huge great room infusing big open airy spaces as one. What a great way to bring family and friends together. I could see those spaces being used all the time. I love his approach to this particular style and would hands down hire him hopefully when not if we do design a beach/coastal home at some point. Click here to visit his website. We are going back to Palmetto Bluff in the fall because I so fell in love with it that we are headed there with my brother in law and wife and these are the types of homes that are found there…just saying:) Thank you as always for stopping by, wishing you a fabulous day! Until next time….. PS A new promo Last Call Lamps? started last night. Click here to see the goodies….
