We hope you had an amazing long Labor Day weekend, chic readers, and that you found some time for fun and a little time to relax as well! I got my first taste of being a plane commuter, flying to Atlanta to speak at the Atlanta Journal Constitution‘s Decatur Book Festival and then flying back home that night so that I could spend two long, lazy beach days with my boys. I’m glad I don’t have to do it every day and have a new respect for people whose daily commute involves a flight, but it wasn’t so bad just this once–and totally worth the down time after!
The “No Lifeguard on Duty” signs are going up, the September Vogues are in mailboxes and on newsstands, and there is that unmistakable crisp in the air that can only mean one thing: It’s fall! We think this gorgeous living room by Melissa Ervin Interior Design looks every bit of this wonderful season.
No place is perfect, but one of the things we love the most about North Carolina is that we get to anticipate, feel and savor each and every season.
Right now, we’re so excited for boots and tailgating, fall leaves and pumpkin patches, all of those things that have such incredible staying power. Speaking of staying power, we first featured this fabulous kitchen on Design Chic several years ago, and we love it as much today as we did those years ago!
We know that there’s probably no such thing as “timeless,” but there’s no doubt that Melissa Ervin’s designs have major staying power.
From gorgeous custom architectural details,
To well-placed antiques,
Always-chic color palettes,
To the ultimate in luxurious details,
Melissa Ervin’s work is always in good taste. And, speaking of fall, this is the perfect place to savor this, our favorite season (we always say that when a new one comes!), while watching fall’s crops come up. What could be better than that?
We hope your fall is off to a fabulous start. Thank you so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
