Subway tile is an instant refresh wherever it is. In old houses or new, it creates a beautiful bathroom!
Speaking of gorgeous bathrooms… The vintage feel of this one is perfect for the age of the house.
This is another one of those “moments” we were talking about that Summer Thornton does so very well. Never underestimate the power of a well-accessorized vignette! We hope you’re having a terrific week and appreciate your stopping by!
This canopy bed is so elegant. This bedroom feels like a getaway!
This gallery wall proves that it’s completely possible to do coastal without getting kitschy.
On vacation or just an ordinary day, this tub would feel like a vacation any time!
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.
A settee at the end of a bed is so sweet. And there’s enough seating to have a party in this room!
Florida should be fun! And this porch knows it. The blue and white tiles add a touch of whimsy.
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?

Who thinks of a stairwell as a fun cheery spot you don’t want to leave? We sure don’t! But this stairwell is that and more.
Now, this is a closet! Is there a better combination than hot pink and leopard?
It seems like stunning closets might be a Summer Thornton specialty!
A luxurious bathroom is such a treat!
What a sweet little girl’s room!
Talk about a nursery that grows as he does! Well, they might have to get him a little bigger car eventually… But, otherwise, it’s perfection! Don’t you love the good taste of Summer Thornton? We knew you would! Thank you so much for making Design Chic a part of your day.

This post is going to get me in trouble. Big trouble. Because, while, at first glance, this looks like any gorgeous living room, this stunning space by Summer Thornton Design isn’t a home at all.
It’s a dental office!
And, you see, I was in charge of decorating my husband’s dental office. Honestly, I thought I did a pretty darn good job.
Well, I mean, I thought I did a good job until I saw this dental office, which, let’s face it, is the most insanely beautiful dental office of all time. Now I’m wondering if maybe I could have applied myself a little more.
Needless to say, it is giving me something to aspire to–though this might have to be my office space within the dental office. We can give hubby something a little more masculine.
This stunning lounge is the perfect place for staff members to cozy up during a break. And it even has a stylish little nod to teeth up there!
The lounge is a great place to pick up a good book!
This takes the kids’ playroom to a whole new level! No torn up Highlights magazines here!
You might look forward to a root canal in this gorgeous exam room!
Need to use the powder room? No problem! You’ll feel right at home in this incredible bathroom. Needless to say, I have some work to do! Thanks for the inspiration, Summer!
“In “Slightly South of Simple,” Kristy once again shows herself to be an accomplished novelist. She possesses a genuine affinity for exploring the bonds between mothers and daughters, she conveys the emotional landscape of raising children with enormous finesse, and she creates thoroughly relatable characters who hook our hearts and hold them — cover to cover.
It is worth noting that Kristy Woodson Harvey is often described as a Southern voice, and indeed she is. But to leave it at that is to underestimate the power and nuance of her storytelling gift — her mastery of dialog to move plot forward, her insights into what makes women tick, and her wit. Rest assured that regardless of where you live or grew up, you will find yourself in Kristy’s writing. “Slightly South of Simple” will have you at turns teary, beaming, and nodding in recognition — as a daughter, a mother, a sister — cheering on her protagonists, Ansley and Caroline. “
