Sims Hilditch dining room with round table


Dear friends, we schedule our content in advance, but we wanted to pop in this morning to say that we are praying for peace and unity in our country and sending love to each and every one of you. For more than ten years, Design Chic has been an escape for us. We hope it is for all of you as well. 


The holidays might be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to put the fine china away! They’re still entertaining-ready in this Sims Hilditch-designed Surrey Lake House.

From Frolic: Under the Southern Sky by Kristy Woodson Harvey

Two childhood friends are brought back together in this moving story about a grieving man who’s lost his wife. When Parker remembers the frozen embryos from his late wife, he is set to become a single father in order to keep a part of Greer. He needs a surrogate though, and with his old friend Amelia back in his life, maybe this could be fate. Parker and Amelia will find solace in each other and discover much about what it means to be a family in Under the Southern Sky.
