In Good Taste: Timothy Brown Studio

Good morning, chic readers! We have so much good taste to share with you today, and we can’t wait!

Timothy Brown Studio‘s style reminds us of summer.

Bright, bold and oh so fun.

Pops of color and eclectic art add touches of whimsy that define these spaces.

Gray and gold are a stunning combination in this streamlined kitchen.

And an overall streamlined aesthetic creates a calming feeling in these beautiful homes.

A mix of metals, textures and materials in this chic kitchen add so much style.

And an open floor plan makes this space feel large and perfect for entertaining a crowd.

Speaking of entertaining a crowd, this fun floor plan is ideal for maximum seating and ensures that everyone in the room can actually talk–all without blocking a single beautiful window. Such an ingenious floor plan!

A round table is one of our favorite entrance hall staples. A luxurious natural stone adds an interesting touch.

One of our favorite things about these designers is that they know which elements of a room should shout…

And which should whisper. This simple yet beautiful bedding creates a room perfect for relaxing after a long day. We hope that, wherever home is for you, it feels just the same.

And the winner is….

Congratulations to the winner of the $350 Minted Gift Card, Ellen Lugat! Ellen, we can’t wait to see what you choose with your winnings!

We can’t believe that Slightly South of Simple will be out in the world three weeks from today! Thrilled to see this beautiful photo from our incredibly talented artist friend Jeanne McKay Hartmann. She said, “Going Slightly South this Sunday… so happy to have some time today to get lost in @kristywharvey ‘s Slightly South of Simple. Kristy has such a talent for creating characters – after a few pages they seem like friends. The perfect escape on slightly sunny afternoon.”

It’s never a bad time to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea. Thank you, Jeanne!

In Good Taste: HB Home Design

If there’s one thing that unites the diversely lovely stylings of HB Home, it’s luxury.
And no matter what our design budget, taste or style, couldn’t we all use a little more luxury in our life?
This perfectly set table complete with fresh flowers is one of those special little somethings that we can all use to make an ordinary day feel extraordinary.
It’s so easy to be intimidated by too much pattern, but doesn’t it add such a fun feel to a space?
Then again… there is something soothing about that classically neutral palette. 
Here is one of those delicious canopy beds we want to sink into… Can’t wait to get one of my own!
This color palette is so fabulous. The bright blue contrasts beautifully with this deep brown.
We adore a pink and brown color scheme too. Paired with a deep shade, pink is a perfect pick for any age.
Here’s another incredible example of that layering of patterns. 
Sigh… And, yet again, crisp white with a splash of blue is the ultimate scheme for a soothing bubble bath.
In a small space like this half bath it’s crucial to make every square inch count!
There’s no room a fabulous piece of art can’t bring together.
We would never ever have thought of putting these colors together. But, then again, we weren’t in House Beautiful
The splashes of gold add so much glamour!
What a chic space for a growing girl. The mix of pattern, color and texture is so much fun!
Thanks for coming by today, friends! We hope HB Home brightened your Tuesday as much as it did ours!
