Double Gable Homes


 Recently I was looking through my Pinterest boards in search of inspiration for a project.  I was surprised by how many images I had collected of double gable homes.  It wasn't what I was searching for at the time, but I kept noticing them.  It turns out we at Huestis Tucker Architects have designed a few homes with the double gable motif, so subconsciously or maybe consciously I seem to really gravitate toward this look.  These homes usually have a slightly casual feel, and are very often Shingle Style,  Arts and Crafts, or Tudor  Style homes.

Pale Pink

 Unknown

 Pale Pink is not just for little girls. The right shade of pink, in the right setting can look really sophisticated.  This room is a great example. The pink paneled walls combined with neutrals, moss greens, and some great furniture creates an elegant not girly look.

 I love the mix of antique and modern in this photo, also couldn't resist the pooch.

 This is a great look: a masculine trim combined with a feminine color...results are ultra sophisticated.

 I love this English look.  Gallery wall with the pink paneled walls.

I love the dark wood furniture as a foil to the pale pink walls.

A little silver and/or gold also looks great with pale pink.

Winter Whites: Beatuful White Living Rooms

Architectural Digest


It's probably counter intuitive, but all white rooms look great in winter.  You would think they would feel stark and chilly, but in fact they feel warm, rich, and inviting.  I especially like the rooms with a touch of gold, mahogany, or a bit of a pale color like pink.  It's difficult to pull off an all white room unless you have great architectural details, like paneling or a fantastic mantel.  Here are some of my favorite all white rooms.
