Good morning, chic friends! Our friends at Skurman Architects have a treat for us today! A beautiful city residence that is perfection from the outside in.

There is nothing like a first impression, and this one is totally on point and sets the tone for whats to come. The black front door juxtaposes perfectly with the beautiful tan of the exterior. And the trimmed boxwoods are the ideal accessory.

Modern art makes a stunning statement in a simple entrance hall.

We don’t love anything quite as much as a light-filled hallway. This glass ceiling accomplishes that in high style!

A black and white vignette is always on trend!

And then there’s statement lighting! We think it’s safe to say that this fabulous home is full of it!

We love the clean, cool look of stainless in a kitchen, and this cabinetry takes the look over the top!

A beautiful bar is perfect for entertaining guests. We simply adore the copper sink!

We can’t decide which element of this gorgeous bath is our favorite! But the architectural details in here definitely top the list. Those windows are incredible!

Dining al fresco has never been so chic!

Comfy furniture with a fire table keeps outdoor entertaining alive all year round. Do you love outdoor entertaining in the fall? Or would you rather curl up by an indoor fire? 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! 

Florida friends, if you’re near USF St. Petersburg, I’ll be speaking at the Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading this coming Saturday–and I can’t wait! I’ll be speaking in USF Davis 105 from 11:15-noon and signing from 12-12:45. If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you!
