Slightly South of Simple Spotted around the Web!

Charming Riverside House in Georgia

Riverside house

With the Slightly South of Simple book tour only weeks away, we have Georgia on the brain! SSoS is set in the fictional town of Peachtree Bluff, but this Riverside house in Georgia is completely real–and totally charming! 

dine in kitchen

Packed with cozy style and adorable features, this kitchen looks like the perfect place to enjoy hot, sweet cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven with someone you love.

dining room

This exposed ceiling makes an incredible architectural feature–and creates the feeling of so much more space in a room. What a great hack for low ceilings!

living room

Everything about this room calls for curling up by the fire and enjoying a good book. With the weather this week, that might be something we could all use a little more of!

dining room with wood beams

Another incredible ceiling that totally defines this room. We love when the decor simply serves to intensify the charm of the architectural details of the house. This whole room has a casual-yet-elegant feel. 

family room with turtle shells

Wood paneling adds instant character–and a game table infuses a room with a feeling of fun and relaxation.

bedroom with four poster bed

We love rooms that don’t take themselves too seriously.

twin beds in guest room

Both of these bedrooms are comfortable, eclectic and totally in keeping with the tone of the house. 

seagrass bed

Natural fibers work in any home, really. But, for a river or beach house they are a necessity!

patio with fire pit

Cozy fire pits like these are where memories are made. Simply add good friends and great conversation!

and Spring Break dangerously, wonderfully close, we can’t help but get a little touch of spring fever.

 bamboo chairs

What better place to visit (even if it’s only on our computers!) for a little spring dreaming than Naples, Florida.

living room with desk

This gorgeous Naples vacation home is sophisticated and chic, the kind of place where you could live all year round, not just vacation.

dining room

Is it any surprise that one of our favorite designers, Summer Thornton, designed this stunner?

kitchen

A sleek and elegant kitchen with all the right details is a perfect spot for entertaining. (Because, try as we might, they’re never going to leave our kitchens!)

living room

This color palette feels cozy and warm–and different from anything else we’re seeing right now. We love it!

This piece is so perfect for those spaces where something with a back would feel too closed. Plus, it’s comfy extra seating!

bedroom with 4 poster bed

Each room is a little different from the last but the unifying themes in this home–like the color palette–makes it cohesive.

light wood paneling in bedroom

Wood paneling gives a nod to the beach nearby.

This canopy bed is so elegant. This bedroom feels like a getaway!

blue and white porcelain

This gallery wall proves that it’s completely possible to do coastal without getting kitschy.

bathroom with porcelain freestanding tub

On vacation or just an ordinary day, this tub would feel like a vacation any time!

bathroom Naples

Because bathroom storage is always at a premium, we’re loving how these baskets not only take advantage of extra space but also add texture.

bedroom

A settee at the end of a bed is so sweet. And there’s enough seating to have a party in this room!

blue and white tile in outdoor kitchen

Florida should be fun! And this porch knows it. The blue and white tiles add a touch of whimsy.

porch with dining table

A pretty pool and lush landscaping lend a view worth coming back to.

From the kitchen to the bedrooms to the patio, blue and white porcelain is a unifying theme of this beautiful Naples getaway. If this beautiful coastal getaway doesn’t have you Spring dreaming, we don’t know what would! Where’s your favorite spring vacation spot?
