Do you ever read blogs and wonder if the people behind them live as stylishly as their site suggests?


We’re sure you do! Now we can say confidently that Sue De Chiara, the mastermind behind the beautiful blog, The Zhush, is as stylish as her fabulous site.


The Zhush has long been one of our favorite sites, so we were thrilled to take a peek inside this stunning home where Sue really practices what she preaches! 1sued

Sue lives with her husband, two teenaged daughters and nine-year-old son in Connecticut. And her home was perfectly designed–with the help of Lauren Muse of Muse Interiors–for the ultimate in family living.


Elements of traditional style, like these floral wingback chairs, blend seamlessly with unexpected touches to create a home that combines the best of both worlds.


A mix of stunning accessories and art, Sue’s home is full of the fabulous stuff that makes us love The Zhush so much! Plus, a pop of gold always, always adds glamour!


The beautiful architectural details in this classic dining room speak for themselves. 


Everything about this kitchen is amazing. But we’re awfully partial to the gold hardware!

Little vignettes like this one are, according to Sue, mostly for aesthetics. And, really, we think that’s reason enough! Plus, if you ever get the urge to use your silver tea set, it’s ready!


A bold navy blue makes a splash in this stunning butler’s pantry. We probably don’t have to tell you that we are huge fans of coral. These shelves are perfectly appointed!

Patterned wallpaper always lends that whimsy that we love so much. This space completely comes to life with these walls as a backdrop.


A master suite fit for a queen! (And king too, of course…) 


After a long day of hard work, this looks like the perfect place to unwind. We love a garden stool beside a tub. Don’t you? And that monogram is perfection!


Everything about this vanity is spot on. The traditional antique silver and perfume bottles juxtapose beautifully with the modern lucite. It’s the best of both worlds!


Sue didn’t forget about her kids when all this zhushing was taking place! This room is the perfect blend of fun, femininity and youthful energy for a teenager’s space.


Plenty of space for two girls to get ready in the morning! And that’s really saying something…


A bold stripe adds instant energy–which you need in a home office. We’re glad to see where Sue thinks all of her creative thoughts!


Sue is one of those multi-talented women who, instead of hunting for the perfect piece of art, often makes it herself. We really can’t relate to this AT ALL. So we are happy that there are talented artists in the world like Sue that make our walls look pretty! And with a cozy, sun-filled nook like this one, it’s no wonder that what she creates is so amazing! For more of her style, make sure to check her fabulous shop, Zhush. Trust us, you’ll be happy you did!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. We always love it when you do!
