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!house13pop2

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

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…..

Love this look!!!!
All of the featured homes appear to be in the Seaside area at Watercolor.
Watercolor is located in the panhandle of north Fl; south Walton county.

I live in this area. We have the whitest sand beaches and emerald/aqua
waters of the gulf. Beautiful!!!

Beautiful! I would love a seaside home with all the aqua’s & blues! Thanks for sharing these beautiful homes. I pinned them in case I meet a prince charming! I hope your back get better….I know how much pain you are in because I hurt mine and I have neck issues also. I tried a cervical care doctor and they did not help me and a friend suggested acupuncture. The doctor gave me a script for Methylpred but I have not taken it yet because of all of the negative comments about the drug. People were saying that they could not sleep at night and there hearts were racing. They said that it was not worth it. How are you doing on it? I hope that it works for you!

So sorry you have a nasty back.
Get well soon.
Thank you for the beautiful exposure to such a talented architect.

Oh Tina?.your poor back!!! Thank goodness it was soooo hot these past few days, staying inside was preferable!

I’m on gorgeousness overload from this post! My best friend and her family just bought a house in Kiawah and will be redoing it. Now, i’m curious if this is their architect. I sure would want him to be mine!!!!

Keep resting!!! Hugs!

Oh, Tina, I hope that your back is better soon! I would hate for you to miss too much of summer! My college roommate and her husband are building a home in Palmetto Dunes. I can’t wait to go visit them there!

Tina, I’ve been thinking about you…I read on Instagram that you hurt your back…you poor thing! I have had my back go out many times and had to have back surgery. Try to get into physical therapy when you can and try to get your core strong…it will help! Love this architecture…that shower door is amazing!
