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!

Things We Love: The Heart of the Home

kitchen
Studio McGee

Hi, friends! Is the kitchen the heart of your home? It definitely is in our houses.

kitchen
Tara Fingold

We don’t know why it is that people always tend to gather in the kitchen, but, when your kitchen looks like one of these, it’s no wonder, really!

kitchen
Adore Magazine

You know we’re a big fan of neutrals, but of all the places to be white and clean and streamlined, the kitchen is our favorite. 

glass
BHG

(We have glass jars with scoops like these. We love the way they look and they are also super convenient.)

kitchen
Mariann Simon Design

We don’t know about you, but we spend so much time in our kitchens. We love walking in to total simplicity, and, for us, a mostly white kitchen is simple and chic.

The juxtaposition of white cabinets with these fabulous brick and wood floors is gorgeous.

Chango & Co

We are gigantic fans of a farmhouse sink, and this one is totally on point!

Ok. Now we’re thinking our glass jars need an upgrade. Forget the lentils, rice and beans. Bring on the Oreos!

No window? No problem. This mirror adds light and makes the space feel larger!

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

We love bobbin chairs, but bobbin barstools? Obsessed!

This marble backsplash is stunning!

If you’re worried about your white kitchen looking boring, just make sure to mix up the texture. It adds tons of interest. A little something green never hurts either! 


In Good Taste:Park and Oak Design

Even their name conjures good feelings. Park and Oak Design. It sounds like a firm that brings the outdoors in. That creates simple yet beautiful design schemes that feel totally livable.

It’s kind of like judging a book by its cover. You’re really not supposed to but, sometimes, the cover does give you a really accurate glimpse into what the book is about.

In this case, we judged a firm by its name. And like that book cover, it did give us a pretty accurate glimpse into what was to come.

If we had to pick one word to describe Oak and Park Design, we think we’d choose… airy. (It’s hard to choose one word, especially when you’re used to getting 85,000 to describe things.)

There’s a minimalistic air about this firm’s work that we find incredibly appealing and totally refreshing.

A modern streak runs through all of these designs that pairs well with traditional touches.

And you know how we love our subway tile!

We love how simple this kitchen is. You can never go wrong with black, white and a touch of natural fiber.

It took us a while to warm up to the idea, but we are now big fans of mixing metals. This kitchen is case and point!

These pendants are perfection.

Speaking of pendants, this is one of our favorites. It’s even more stunning in real life!

Saarinen tables are always a favorite. Sleek, modern and totally functional, they’re a great pick for a breakfast room, especially one that isn’t huge.

The right combination of high and low, rustic and modern, this gorgeous bathroom is the perfect mix of favorite elements blended together in just the right way.

A great wallpaper can totally make a bathroom. We love the vintage feel of this marble sink. The simplicity of these fixtures is a perfect complement to the fun wallpaper. All in all, we think you’ll agree that the work of Park and Oak is in good taste. Which is your favorite room?

We hope you’re having a great day and staying warm!
