I have been a fan of the architecture firm Polhemus Savery DaSilva (try saying that three times fast!) for a long time. I have their book Shingled Houses in the Summer Sun and have featured their work a couple times before (one of my favorite remodels was an Italianate-style house from the 1880s). So I was excited to see this one with the charming aqua door and shutters…
The landscaping is lovely, too. Those daisies! Those hydrangeas!
There’s a “fish” theme happening here–note the fabric on the sofa above and the pendant lights below:
Michael Graves said of their work: “The world of Polhemus Savery DaSilva is so enormously refreshing . . . a body of uncompromising domestic architecture.”
I wouldn’t mind sitting right here beside the pool right now (although it’s probably a little chilly out there today!):
Thanks to one of my favorite blogs, House of Turquoise, for featuring this one. Erin actually came across the house on vacation and snapped a photo of it herself. I wouldn’t have been able to resist taking one, either!
