Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had a terrific weekend and are ready to start a wonderful week ahead. We don’t know about you, but we love Valentine’s Day. Or not even really the day so much as the whole Valentine’s season.
All the red and pink and gold glitter hearts and chocolate and wine everywhere. Everything for Valentine’s Day is so cute and chic and stylish now. This bedding is the perfect Valentine’s Day red…
And this one is the perfect Valentine’s Day pink! We still remember being kids and and coming home with a huge bag full of paper Valentine’s sporting sappy sayings, some with candy, some with other Valentine’s trinkets. You never knew what you were going to find. It was wonderful!
What’s even better is the fabulous four poster beds. We don’t think many things add a sense of presence in a room quite like a substantial bed.
When it comes to good taste, there’s no one that has it knocked quite like Suzanne Kasler.
Always the epitome of grace, elegance and style, Kasler’s homes have a sense of purpose about them. They tell a story.
Never too stuffy, but always refined, these are the rooms that we go back to again and again to study and learn and fall in love with something new at every turn.
We love the feeling of a room being collected, of it coming together over time, and, though we are sure that there has been a time Kasler purchased everything in a room at once, her rooms always have that collected feeling.
But, at the same time, they never take themselves too seriously. A throw for a chilly day, a whimsical painting…
Abstract art is always the right choice for infusing a room–even a otherwise staid one–with humor and whimsy. (We spy our FAVORITE tray from Anna by RabLabs on the coffee table!
Kasler knows that, when it comes to doing neutrals well, texture is the name of the game. Each of these is more luscious than the next.
Bright, light and with the perfect, unexpected palette.
This room is almost too good! Perfection in every single way! Have you ever, ever seen windows and doors quite this amazing?
The beauty is so often in the details, as with this chic vignette. But Kasler never over accessorizes, which, in our New Year, clutter-free state of mind we really appreciate!
Even the ceiling is a work of art! Dining rooms can sometimes feel a little too stiff and heavy. The color play in this room keeps it from feeling too formal.
Who needs an island when you can gather family around a real dining table? Lovely!
We love all of Suzanne Kasler’s rooms. Really, we do. But the bedrooms?
They are positively dreamy. They actually make you want to curl up and go to sleep. It’s genius.
This dressing area is so feminine and delicate, with the right amount of glamour to make getting ready as much fun as the event itself!
This is the kind of outdoor space that has us dreaming of getting outside. With a fireplace that lovely you can do just that, no matter the weather.
We hope that, no matter the weather where you are, your 2017 is off to a fabulous start!
As the year comes to an end and the holidays begin, our kitchens begin to take center stage. The heart of home is certainly a vital part of our festivities and day-to-day lives all year round, but never do we realize their importance as much as when we’re cooking those Christmas meals. For inspiration on how to live well in your kitchen, from now all the way into the New Year, take a page from Karr Bick Kitchen & Bath.
Wishing you a wonderful day with a bit of time to relax and enjoy this beautiful season!
Now that we have finished hauling the rest of the Christmas decorations out of storage it is finally feeling like the most wonderful time of the year! Decorating for Christmas is one of our favorite things to do. If you need a little help getting started–or simply can’t get enough holiday decor–take a peek at this gorgeous Buckhead home from Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles photographed by the fabulous Emily Followill Photography.
We hope that whatever the rest of this holiday week holds, it fills you with joy. Thanks for making Design Chic a part of your celebration!
It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but, as we all know, sometimes it can be a tad overwhelming. Fortunately for us, touring this East Hampton home is like taking a deep cleansing breath. Sleek, modern and not a thing overdone or out of place, it’s just the kind of place we would love to relax for a few moments in between the Christmas pageant and the office party! For more fabulous designs make sure to visit John Hummel & Associates!
We hope your holiday season is off to a terrific start. Thanks for making us a part of it!
