I love brick. Always have, always will. This weekend I was in “cyberland” for more brick inspiration when I came across this home. Holy Cannoli! This home has my name on it! Two fab houses connected into one! One white more modern main house and one “newtrad” brick house to host cars and perhaps a work loft. And both buildings are connected! I am vibrating at the spot over here.
And would you believe that another image I have saved on a stunning brick wall I just realized comes from the very same architect – Hugh Jefferson Randolph. I love a brilliant man who talks brick!
A little bit of exposed brick in the foyer.
Another stunning home by Mr. Randolph. I sure would like to see more of that kitchen I spy to the right.
For all of you following my blog you know that gray kitchens always get my attention but I also have to say that I have seen zillions of gray kitchens that are just plain cold. You can’t fool me with just color, people. A kitchen (or any room for that matter) must be foremost inviting (and functional).
This kitchen has made its rounds in blogosphere — and rightfully so. What a nice & inviting room! And what do I see in the very back? White brick… I am just saying..!

I read that Hugh Jefferson Randolph Architects of Austin, TX received Houzz’s 2012 ‘Best Of Remodeling’ Award.
Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Houzz, a while ago and learned that I had received Houzz’ 2012 “Best Makeover” Award – for “creative, beautiful and intelligent residential spaces.” It was William’s big boy bedroom makeover that apparently had gotten some attention. Who would have thought!
I am deeply honored, judges over at Houzz! Thank you for the nice recognition.
Houzz (www.houzz.com) is the leading online platform for home remodeling. Houzz features the largest residential design database in the world and has 3.5 million monthly unique users.
What else? Well I have to say (and it always comes with so much guilt) that I have had to step away from blog land (or at least the networking) for a while because I am busy, busy with so many things right now. So to all my blog friends — don’t for a second think that you are not special. You are. I have absolutely not forgotten you — I just need a little time to focus right now. I will check in as soon as I can.
Hugs to you all and Hi & Welcome to all new subscribers!
