Making An Entrance

tsg_bardes_entry_fix Whether minimally styled and statement-making or elegant and warmly welcoming, a beautiful entryway always makes a lasting first impression. The space is not only where we greet our guests, it’s what we first come home to, and who doesn’t want to walk into such a soothing and sublime setting as the one shown above by Chicago’s Bardes Interiors? Full of light and elegantly appointed, it beckons you in with its beauty (and, we imagine, makes it hard to leave!). tsg_katherine_shenaman_2 The patterns, texture, and one-of-a-kind pieces in this project by Katherine Shenaman Interiors pull us in and make us want to explore every room. Every detail has been carefully selected and expertly executed, making the entry feel undeniably enticing.

tsg_mary_evelyn_bham_entry Every time we peruse the portfolio of Birmingham’s Mary Evelyn Interiors we’re struck by how utterly inviting her work is. This beautiful space is a perfect example of why we want to walk into every one of her designs.

19th c. Architectural Detail

Formerly located on the exterior of a Rhode Island mansion, the piece, which measures 31″ h x 57″ w x 6.5″ d, would be a gorgeous textural focal point and look right at home above a bed or mantel.

Dive In: 17 Cool Pools That Have Us Looking Forward to Summer

tsg-pools-2015-katherine-shenaman The official first day of summer is still days away, yet here at TSG HQ temperatures have reached August-appropriate heights. We’ve already broken into our heat-fighting arsenal of white linen and icy treats, but when the mercury pushes past ninety, the only remedy comes in the form of a cool, blue pool—preferably complete with chic cabana a la the above scene by Palm Beach’s Katherine Shenaman Interiors.

tsg-pools-2015-benitz-BOWA The Primavera Way project by Palm Beach’s Benitz Building (top) and pool house addition in Washington, D.C. by BOWA (above) are stunning symmetrical settings with structures that convey a sense of calm to match the still blue water. It’s hard to imagine a more tranquil place to spend a summer afternoon.

tsg-pools-2015-BonadiesArchitect-Nashville Clean lines and contrasting materials make this pool area by Nashville-based Bonadies Architect feel not just refreshing, but perfectly situated in its surroundings.

Matt Garcia Minimal and modern, the infinity pool in this project by Austin’s Matt Garcia Design is wonderfully serene and optimizes the impressive view.

tsg-pools-2015-root-design-co There are so many things to love about this project by Austin’s Root Design Company. Just imagining starting or ending the day by swimming laps in a pool with such a spectacular view and perfectly aligned elements makes us feel at peace.

tsg-pools-2015-herlong-architects Charleston’s Herlong & Associates are absolute experts when it comes to Lowcountry retreats, and their Charleston Harbor Estate project illustrates why. Porches, patios, balconies, a beautiful pool…what better way to enjoy the seaside surroundings?

tsg-pools-2015-glen-fires Beauty abounds at the pool settings by Princeton’s Glen Fries Associates Architects. Each would feel like a secret garden-like oasis on a summer’s day.

tsg-polls-2015-kurtz-michael-s-woo Top: Locust, New Jersey-based Michael S. Wu has created the ultimate summer party space. Above: Naples’s Kurtz Homes shows that blue skies and calm waters in impeccable settings are the perfect pairing.

tsg-pools-2015-root With apologies to TSG HQ, we’ll be spending the rest of the summer at this Root Design Company-created wonderland.
