Good morning, chic readers! We don’t know how the weather is where you are, but the past couple days here have been warm, sunny and absolutely gorgeous! We are having major Spring fever, savoring every second outside–and hoping that that groundhog was wrong and this warm weather is here to stay.
Whether you’re really having summer weather or just dreaming about us, take a little mini-vacation with us today to this beyond fabulous Carolina cottage designed by Janie Molster.
There is nothing like beach cottage, with all those historic touches, to take us back to beach trips of our childhoods.
The thing we love most about this home is how Molster mixes those sweet, nostalgic touches–like wood paneling–with bright updated style.
This island is the perfect spot for sandy feet and pimento cheese sandwiches!
Fresh watermelon and strawberries from a roadside stand become accessories in this kitchen.
Exposed beams and painted floors lend a classic look,
While bright linens lend fun, fresh vacation-worthy appeal.
All I can say is that I wish I had seen this earlier… We had so many pairs of red Keds! What a fun way to incorporate them into the style.
Bold red and pretty marble update this bath, while hexagonal tile remains a throwback to a simpler time that’s still completely on trend.
Nothing says “beach retreat” like a fabulous kids’ room!
Beach towel goals!! We can’t decide which is cuter, the towels or the basket!
At the beach, driftwood really is the best accessory!
This utterly charming, classic exterior ties it all together–and, y’all, that view. This looks like the kind of place that has made a thousand memories and will make a thousand more. Thanks for touring with us today! We hope you love this Carolina cottage as much as we do!
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
What Jena Pate of Our Southern Roots is saying about The Secret to Southern Charm!
“Kristy just has a way of capturing the beauty of the Georgia coast through her writing that make you feel like you are sitting right there amongst all the action while you read. The characters are all so well developed and you get attached very quickly.I would obviously recommend picking up Slightly South of Simple if you haven’t already, then pre-order your copy of The Secret to Southern Charm… this book will take you on an emotional roller coaster in the best possible way and leave you wanting more….and impatiently waiting for book three in the series :)” — Jena Pate, Our Southern Roots Blog
