House Tour: Cashiers

We love finding new places we love, and, as you probably gathered from our post yesterday, we absolutely loved Cashiers, NC! 

We stayed in a charming mountain cabin that was one of the highlights of the trip. Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles called this home “Cashiers Cool,” and we think that’s the perfect description!

This house embodies that enviable rustic luxury that provides the best of all possible design worlds. 

A clean, sleek, streamlined heart of the home sets the tone for a beautiful escape.

Creating a mountain retreat is much like creating a coastal retreat in that, when it comes to adding rustic charm, less is more. The wooden base of this table is the perfect mountainous touch in the breakfast room.

Window in front of the vanity? No problem! Just cover it with a mirror. We adore this idea!

Beams are the perfect mountainous touch in this stunning master bath–and the hardware steals the show in these builtins. 

Textures and fabrics combine in this room to make it feel luxe, layered and cozy. 

Rich hues and bold stripes combine for making the perfect bunk room. This one makes the most of a sloped ceiling. 

A mix of light and dark colors makes this room feel warm and cozy but still light enough to be clean and refreshing.

The best part of Cashiers? Why the view, of course! It’s the thing that, no doubt, keeps people coming back again and again. Do you love this Cashiers home as much as we do? Wishing you a wonderful day!

 Pinterest-worthy. That’s what we’d say about Marshall Watson Interior Design

With all the choices of things to pin out there these days, that’s a pretty high compliment.

But these gorgeous rooms and outdoor spaces by these user-talented designers are ones we want to remember, take inspiration from and come back to again and again.

If we weren’t already having Spring fever (which we are, big time…) then this porch would certainly inspire it. From the lush landscape to the beautiful touches, every element is utter perfection.

These banana leaf chairs are some of our favorites! In fact, we have them in the Beaufort playroom!

Dining al fresco has never looked so good. Sunflowers add a cheerful burst of color.

Dark furniture and warm tones make this light-filled room feel super cozy.

House Tour: Rustic Lake Wateree Hunting Lodge

hunting lodge

When it gets a little colder, like it is now, that’s when we start to imagine ourselves in a cozy hunting lodge by the lake. Bonfires, oyster roasts and s’mores dance through our heads–and, of course, an interior with lots and lots of wood. We are loving this gorgeous example of a hunting cabin–and we think you will too!

Happy Tuesday, friends! We hope your week is off to a great start–and we know it’s about to get better. The good taste of Kishani Perera is sure to make you smile!

You know we love a good bookcase–and we appreciate a bookcase full of volumes that are actually read. What a perfect chair to sit awhile and enjoy one of them.

Speaking of fabulous things to fill your bookshelves, I got my very first advance copy of my new novel, Slightly South of Simpleover the weekend. I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it on other people’s bookshelves!

We love the look of stained wood paneling, but sometimes it can make a room feel too dark. This room is the perfect balance of elements that feels light yet warm.

When it comes to kitchens, this designer has incredible range. 

From a charming banquette

to a sleek marble scheme,

A unique backsplash and fabulous herringbone floors

To simple grays and whites with a splash of fun color, kitchen style abounds in this designer’s portfolio.

Striking architectural details can make a bathroom feel super chic.

Whether dark and dramatic or light and bright, beautiful paneling makes a bathroom pop.

A fun light fixture adds so much fun to a gorgeous bathroom. And that tub… Total relaxation!

The nursery might very well be the most fun room to decorate. This one is so adorable and will easily transform from baby to toddler. We love, love Bla Bla animals like the ones in the crib. Cloud the cat is one of little Will’s favorites!

Fabulous outdoor spaces are always, always the icing on the cake–when the cake is a stunning home. This space is perfection. We might never want to go inside!

Thank you so, so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you do!
