Hello, my friends! This is the kind of post I’d recommend you to bookmark it for future reference, since there’s so much inspiration and it probably can’t be seen in only one day. This has to be my longest post so far. I know I could have divided this into many different posts, but I wanted to leave it all in one single page, so it’s easier for you to find and bookmark.
When you work in this area, you’re always looking for inspiration, for homes and interiors you haven’t seen yet and you feel really happy when you find a professional that not only has a beautiful work to share, but also high quality photos, so you can make a great post. When I saw the work of Crisp Architects I simply spent an entire day just “studying” their incredible work and I couldn’t stop adding pictures for this post, I wanted to share it all with you.
Crisp Architects was established in 1985 and has created or renovated homes throughout Dutchess, Columbia and Westchester Counties in New York, Litchfield and Fairfield Counties in Connecticut and Berkshire County in Massachusetts.
I really recommend you to take a look at their beautiful work at Crisp Architects. All the gorgeous pictures were taken by the very talented photographer Rob Karosis.
The more I see green walls, the more I like it. I also love the wooden countertops.
I’d prefer seeing hardwood floors instead of carpet, but I love the architectural details here.
A cozy fireplace warms up this dining room.
Nice built-ins and gorgeous views.
The plaid carpet is fun and I also love the way they displayed the pictures.
Get organized with this idea.
All of their homes has an amazing curb-appeal. Love the front porch.
I can see a big family enjoying this home.
I honestly love every detail in this bedroom, except the valence on the widow. It’s so dreamy, yet not too big, too “stuffy”.
Wow! Someone loves his/her vino! What a huge collection.
Screened Porch and Barn.
What a stunning view of the house.
Sweet Like Sugar
The “Small Home” is not that small, actually.
I’m missing summer…
I love these chairs.
I would sell everything I own to live in this house. Okay, maybe that’s a bit too much, but I do love everything here. It looks like a movie set.
Pond View Home
Outdoor fireplace on porch.
Outstanding stone rail and fireplace. I love the architecture and views.
The Artist’s Retreat
This home has the most enchanting gardens.
The owners’ love for nature is so evident.
Walkway at back of home.
Great porches on both sides of the house.
I love the ceilings and the blue accents in this room. It’s very calming.
A classic tub.
a beautiful respect for its surroundings.
A porch from another home.
“I-am-the-king-of-the-world” kind of view. 🙂
I love how they store the wood.
A really beautiful facade.
One of my favorite homes
I love this foyer.
I always like seeing lanterns in hallways.
The floors, windows and ceilings bring this room to the next level.
Love this idea!
I must admit I was expecting a white kitchen, but this is also beautiful.
A fireplace… how great is that?
Stunning additions were made to this house.
A classic look was kept.
This is the kind of foyer that can take my breath away. I don’t need more than this. Please, notice the wide pine floors, original from the house.
This is such an unique place and I really feel it reflects the owners’ personality.
I love seeing restored houses that keeps its authenticity. This is a timeless kitchen.
How warm and cozy! Notice the beam and the TV nook above the fireplace.
I could spend hours with some friends here, just talking about life and enjoying the fire.
These are 200-year-old beams, original from the house.
A spacious pantry. So handy!
What a magical dining room. I love the chandeliers.
Lovely views and I adore this table.
This house has a complete “facelift”. Can you tell?
The grey island creates a contrast with the white kitchen.
This is such a delicate bathroom. Look at the furnishings and finishings.
Who wouldn’t love to spend some time on that balcony?
White house and beautiful gardens.
White & Bright
Another view of the sunroom.
Inside, the sunroom feels more like a living room.
The coffee station keeps everything organized and hidden.
Embraced by nature.
One of my favorites: hydrangeas.
I love the warm color on the walls and the windows being the same height as the cabinets., giving an uniform look.
I love the shelves in this kitchen. So charming.
I love everything in this mudroom. Notice the brick floors, the built-ins have small drawers for gloves and such.
Warm and inviting.
I love how “raw” this kitchens feels. Stunning!
I love the simplicity and natural elements of this bathroom, including the wide plank wood floors.
Charming. I’m obsessed about that mirror.
Notice the chairs facing the fireplace. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend some time there?
Open or Not
The house feels open, but not too exposed.
Who wouldn’t love to have a fireplace by the kitchen, right? Cozy!
This is not a huge kitchen, but if feels large, since it’s open to the rest of the house.
Built-ins always make any room look better. I also love the grasscloth wallpaper.
Sun Sunny Some Sunroom
This is a sunroom that we simply can’t forget.
White & Blue
This place feels incredibly comfortable.
The ceiling were painted blue. Notice the fireplace. I also love the rug and the furnishings.
A nice place to eat and enjoy the view.
What a wonderful sight!
Chaise & Sconces
I love the fact they used so many sconces and they also added some comfy chaises for relaxing or reading time.
I know I’m saving many of these pictures on my “inspiration file” and just in case you wondering how long it took me to prepare this post, I’ll tell you… It took a couple of days, but what really matters is if you guys really enjoy and feel inspired by it.
What really attracts me to their homes is that every single one of them feels just like a real home, full of warmth and uniqueness. And I’m sure that’s what we search for when it comes to our own homes, all we want is a place where it feels beautiful and welcoming, but most of all, real.
Please, don’t forget to check Crisp Architects’ website!

Which one are you pinning today?
Oh, I know! This is a very long post, right? But I hope you could actually take this time spent here to dream with me. I simply had to show you Crisp Architects’ beautiful work and I hope you had fun.
Talking about fun, my kids are on their “march break” and we’re trying to spend some quality time together. I really love having them all day with me. I’m not going to lie and say they’re always so quiet and perfect, but I actually prefer this way. Like my grandmother always says, “If your child is too quiet, go there and take a look, because something wrong probably is going on”. 🙂 Hearing them playing, laughing and having fun is something we should appreciate and even be grateful for.
Last night I thought about something I didn’t before. I was looking at Matthew (my baby) and he looked at me and smiled. His smile was so pure and his eyes was just so wide. I could feel so loved by this little baby and that’s when I felt in my heart that I must never let this “pureness” disappear. We, parents, should always keep the love our kids have for us as pure as it can be. We should always do everything in our power to never hurt this love or hurt their trust. We always should be the ones they can always, always have by their side, the ones they can count on.
I once heard someone saying that our relationships are like bridges that have to be built every single day and we do that by adding little pieces at time. We should go to bed feeling that we have done all we could to add the necessary pieces for that day. And we should ask ourselves if we could across the bridge to be and feel closer to the other person.
We build the bridge by listening, by saying “no” when we have to say “no”, by giving real attention and by showing they’re loved.
No matter how old our kids are, they will always need to feel loved by us and our job is to keep building this bridge, day by day and never let it go.

Luciane – You were right! This post is amazing and that first picture is to die for. These houses are exactly my style and I am definitely bookmarking this post and pinning away. Thanks for the inspiration! So fun!
Okay, I have to stop! I’ve already pinned about 5, and could keep pinning forever! There are so many amazing architectural options,it’s like a smorgasbord! Well… maybe I’ll add just a few more 😉
Happy Wednesday my friend!
Oh, wow, what beautiful houses! So much eye candy in one post. I not only love the sunroom at the end but all of the porches. Thanks for the inspiration, Luciane! 🙂

I love it when we are home and on break, its such a nice reprise from the every day routine…we wake up when we want, go and come as we please….feels like summer! Enjoy your precious time, loved what you said about the kids and pure love……it doesnt get better than that!
You weren’t kidding that this was going to be a long post but so worth it. So many stunning images and really very New England at its very best. I had never heard of these architects so thank you for introdcing them to us.
You sound so happy Lucianne and so complete.
Can you just transfer all of these images to my Pinterest account?! Really stunning homes. xo
Thank you for posting some wonderful colorful rooms here today! You know how much I love color. And as for all of the rooms here, the covered porches and sunroom are, I must admit, my favorites. My next house will have a covered porch…….and as for the beauty inside these homes, nothing matches your inner beauty. You are blessed to have your children, but do you recognize how blessed they are to have you? xoxo
Ohhh my dear Luciane this post it’s amazing, so wonderful! I love all pictures. I don’t know whic my favorite, all them!
Have a good weekend my friend with you family.
What a great post with so many beautiful houses! I am going back to look a second time around!! I do think that the last house is my favorite!!! Because of that image with the piano!! Beautiful!!
This has to be my favorite post ever – each house and each room is more beautiful than the next. Thanks for opening my eyes to these talented architects! I’m devoting a board on Pinterest to Crisp Architects as we speak!
wow, Luciane, what a gorgeous post. I love every image and the architecture is amazing. Each home has the most dreamy kitchen and outdoor space….fabulous spaces!! My precious Will is visiting this weekend and I can hardly wait to see his sweet smile…love hearing about your sweet Matthew!!
This is the end all and be all of blog posts! It is truly amazing. How did you ever get the time? You knocked it out of the park!!!
Such beautiful homes – classic New England. I can see how you had to keep adding just one more. Thanks for your hard work. So wonderful you’re able to be home to enjoy your children.
you know i don’t pin, but man they are pinworthy for sure! hope you are finding balance outside of blogland and enjoying the process. that first smile is absolutely priceless. i am beaming for you.
You are so right! I’ve saved this post for future inspiration…including your sweet comments at the end about spending quality time with your little ones. We all need to remember to layer on the love with those that matter most.
Gorgeous homes. Every one of them! Not one out of focus. I love that about your posts. And I love that you are always inspiring and uplifting in your post comments.
Absolutely stunning from the first picture to the last. I was only going to repin one, but how can I choose? This post was indeed inspiring.
The green walls really stood out from all those photos! Very attractive homes! And thank you for the sweet reminder about our “babies” 🙂
My heart just melted reading your beautiful thoughts about your baby. That bonding time between a baby and Mother is like no other experience. Its wonderful!
I am from Long Island and all those shots reminded me of our old lazy summer days. I miss summer, but got a glimpse of it in Ca. Come by and see Hutton Wilkinson’s new house in 90210–I love it.
James Crisp of Crisp Architects also co-wrote “On The Porch” with Sandra Mahoney a great coffee table book & an even better read!
