I Love to find patterns. Patterns in the marketplace. Patterns in emerging developments. Patterns in people’s behaviors. The crazy thing is though, so often I fail to see any of the patterns in my own life. While driving from one project to another last week, I began to connect a few of the dots. You see, I’ve never considered myself to be defined by one single architectural style. In … Read More Which one would you pick?
Well, we just made it back, with a bevy of young’uns in tow, from a week away at my second most favorite place under the sun. That place being St. Simons Island along the gorgeous Georgia coast. I love it for its strength in resisting the trap of commercialization. You know, a sell out of any kind has always rubbed me the wrong way. While we … Read More Taken Back a Bit…
The other night, as my wife and I were spending a quiet evening reading, she handed me the latest edition of Southern Living stating that I had to take a look because just about everybody I ever speak about is mentioned somewhere in the issue. And sure enough, it was chock full of local talent. So, I dove right in.
Here’s one of my All~Time favorite Homes, in one of my All~Time favorite communities. The beautiful enclave of Brookhaven. I happen to have the good fortune of driving by this beaut everyday as we have a new home going up just down the road. I Love the patio doors, the full size shutters, the rhythm of segmented arches, the swooped gable, the motor … Read More It’s a Radiation Vibe Thing
Greetings All. You know, one thing that I love to do with this blog is to promote other individuals or entities. But, I am hesitant to plug just anyone. You see, this is something that I place a great deal of consideration into. It is something that I certainly do not take lightly. From my perspective, they have to be truly worthy. Truly knocking it out of … Read More The Mark of a Professional
Man, I can’t wait for spring. This past Saturday morning I wanted to go for a run, too cold. I thought about working in the yard or washing the car. Again, too cold. But, what I really wanted to do was to attend an architectural lecture presented by the ICA&A and held at “The Little Chapel”. However, I had already decided to pass on this opportunity so that I could … Read More The Soul of the Home
Last Friday, I attended an event hosted by Hansgrohe where they introduced some of the latest designs to their Axor line and gave some background about the designers who have provided so much of the inspiration. The international team of All-Stars is comprised of Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio, Jean-Marie Massaud, Patricia Urquiola, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Pheonix Design (Tom Schonherr and Andreas Haug). It was really a cool presentation, yet,
If you haven’t seen it yet, please check out this really exceptional post by Limestone and Boxwoods. In it, James has done a phenomenal job in illustrating how impactful a design detail like fluting can be when crafting a genuinely magnificent Home. I am truly appreciative to not only the viewpoint; but also, the level of observation. Yet, even as good as this piece is, … Read More So Eloquently Stated
Wow, it certainly seems that the seasons are simply flying by these days. As for me and my crew, we continue to rush from one appointment to the next, one event to another and one ‘to-do’ to yet an additional ensuing ‘to-do’. It is just crazy; bordering on chaos. It also reminds me of how much I appreciate order, tidiness, balance and composure. And, how much I would like to … Read More Bringing it Back Together
The other night, I had the privilege of attending an absolutely amazing event. Beacham and Company had a Reveal Party for the latest edition of their publication called “The Series” coupled with a celebration of their 5 year anniversary. If you’re not Following these guys, you have too. If you’re not a Fan yet of the company, go check them out. There is no way that … Read More Why I Love “This World”!
Can anyone tell me who designed / built this one? It has always been a Gem on the Burton shoreline. We would pass it on our way to Anchorage Marina and I would sit back and relish in its splendor. The way it sits out on the point in the noblest of fashion. With an air of stateliness, elegance and just plain striking beauty. And then the … Read More While We’re Talkin About the Lake
Man ‘o man, this has been a ridiculously crazy week. Sorry for being a little slack with the posts, it’s just been a scramble to get everything done between work and family. With that being said, as I begin to decompress, my mind transcends to a better place. And the cool evening breezes are helping me get there. I suppose that with the changing of the … Read More Kicked Back and Dreaming
