Shingle Inspiration

We’ve long admired the Hamptons for its cooler temperature, but we also obsess over the shingle homes there. We love how a shingle house can fit into any setting, not just the beach. Our new favorite book puts it best, “The American romance with the shingle style has lasted nearly 150 years […] because […] it presents the best of everything. A shingle house can suggest the beach, the countryside, the mountains, even the city. It can represent the whimsy of a folly or the propriety of a family retreat.” We couldn’t agree more. We’re ready to see another shingle house in Dallas.

We are constantly pulling ideas for our upcoming project on 6318 Westchester….and the amazing homes below have us feeling very inspired!
