take it outside

 

tasteful exterior spaces, just in time for summer…

Current New England temperatures are far from our idyllic coastal summers, but our clients know warmer weather will be here before we know it.  Once here, our summers here are short-lived, for sure.

Those precious twelve weeks of summer means outdoor spaces currently in design and construction need to hit the deadline – with absolutely no delays.  team taste designers Megan Landis and Kevin Baker are currently at work putting the finishing details on summer spaces ready for this summer.

Interested in upgrading your outdoor living spaces?  Take some inspiration from our current projects below and reach out if we can help you make the most of our short-lived but sweet New England summers.

Only the best,

 

 

 

 

A Perfect Pool Pavilion

Megan’s collaborating with a seasoned landscape architect and build team to design the interiors of a pool pavilion.  Her vision to let natural light into the space will become a reality with a circular window and trellis detailing.  After the sun sets, uplighting on the ceiling with exposed beams and sconces where they count, will transform the space for evening gatherings, too.

Quintessential Newport Porches, Pergolas and Cabanas

Kevin, Michaela and I are working with Parker Construction and landscape designer Shiva Kunz to bring architect Jim Golden’s of Patrick Ahearn Architects vision for compact, yet high functioning outdoors spaces at our Newport restoration project.

Our client hosts large gatherings with as many as forty-fifty people, so flexible spaces that expand when needed are a must.  The built-in benches for extra seating at the patio help squeeze as many family and friends together as possible.  And the Cabana doubles as additional guest quarters when the party extends from summer evenings to the summer weekends.

let’s step outside

the great outdoors awaits

 

Spring is in the air.  (If you live in the Northeast like us, it takes a bit of imagination, but nonetheless, we’re in striking distance.)  In anticipation of a classic New England summer, we’re adding more outdoor furnishing options to our cadre of resources.

The past few months, we’ve met with Lane Ventures and Summit Furniture to learn more about their lines of furniture, finishes and fabric options and methods of construction.  As a result, we’re adding both to our short list of preferred outdoor furnishing options.  And – samples of each line will arrive in our gallery later this Spring, ready for ‘sit testing’.  In addition to Lane Ventures and Summit, Janus et Cie, Kingsley Bate, Richardson-Allen and DEDON are at our fingertips to provide the right choice for each space.  Perfect for the patio, pool or boat.

Take a look, take a seat and get ready to take in the great outdoors this summer.

Only the best,
