Hi, chic readers! We spent the day doing a hygge photo shoot for a magazine, surrounded by furry throws, hide rugs, lit candles, and of course, a roaring fire–with the air conditioner cranked down the 65. While we love the hygge trend, it felt funny to be decorating for winter in the dog days of August! But it’s always fun to look toward the season ahead.
This fabulous Euclid Traditional by the uber-talented Amy Berry Design hits all the high notes of summer. You’ll see what we mean, especially when you get to the porch!
While it was fun to get a glimpse of winter, we were glad to come back to our summer digs, with the light, fun patterns, the natural fibers, the fresh flowers…
And, we have to say, looking at these gorgeous rooms, this stunning space would look amazing in any season.
Barry is so wonderful at mixing the old and the new, at combining an antique rug with new upholstery, an antique piece of furniture with fresh accessories, making the entire thing come off as updated but with a sense of history.
If we had to choose one word to describe her interiors, we think it would be inviting.
This is the kind of home where, after you walk through the door, you want to stay awhile.
Speaking of seasonal decor, this sunny space makes it feel like summer even what lies beyond the door is less than toasty!
We adore the incredibly tailored look of this bedroom. It’s crisp, neat and finished–with just the right amount of monogram!
Library lamps are one of our favorite trendy items that we think everyone should have at least a couple of. Cozy reading nooks are always welcome–especially as we prepare to transition to cooler weather.
You think the inside is good? Just wait until you see the outside!
Now this is a patio.
You know we love outdoor spaces that are an extension of the indoors, and this porch fits that bill perfectly. Every detail is gorgeous!
Chic chaises top our outdoor wishlist. This Carolina blue with white piping is so summery and equally as elegant. We’d love lounging here!
Thanks so much for touring this gorgeous home with us. We love it when you stop by!
