“An ideal kitchen is comprised of a variety of elements that are not just pleasing in a decorative sense, but also extremely practical. The very best examples seamlessly blend form and function while also instilling a sense of order; and while the layout, palette, and larger components are obviously key factors, the impact that details like hardware, lighting, and tile can have on a space should not be overlooked.”

Clean, calming, and undeniably sophisticated, a neutral palette can make a statement simply by letting the details to do the talking. A neutral backdrop creates a welcoming interior when mixed with warm textures can allow fairly bold elements into your design that may otherwise look garish.
Classic and comfortable, club chairs are always a good choice when the goal is to create a cozy seating area. Whether left clean and simple or styled with pillows and a soft throw, the conversation-friendly coupling is a timeless way to outfit a space.
When Jeff and Brittany were together in Nantucket last summer, Emily Westlake, The Scout Guide editor found a prime opportunity to catch the designers who work on two different coasts in one place. Casually sitting in Nantucket together, a shared favorite place of relaxation and inspiration, Emily was excited to hear about Brittany's expanding design firm and Jeff's latest projects. Growing up with a father who is an architect, Emily shares a childhood similar to Brittany's and mine. When I chatted with Emily we laughed about both going on architectural home and garden tours with our fathers as children and touring particular college campuses just because of their design and architectural beauty.
