Beach Chic

Patrick Ahearn Architect

 It’s only Tuesday, and we’re dreaming of a weekend at the beach again already… It’s just that time of year I guess! From sailboats to sea shells to a hint of nautical rope, we’re celebrating those tiny touches that take a home from chic to beach chic. We hope these photos make you feel like you’re on a mini-vacation today!

Indigo Waves

such good style
It’s in the rainbow for a reason.

Far from basic blue, indigo adds a fabulous element to any equation.

It’s chic on the shoulder…

Indigo is always a work of art!

For bold beyond black and white, indigo is ideal.

Beaufort Update!

Hi, friends! We hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We still have a ways to go with the Beaufort house, but we wanted to give you a little sneak peek of a few things! As my husband delicately pointed out, my photography skills are abysmal. I think I should take a class or something… Anyway, we still have a some painting to do, curtains to hang, etc. etc. But we’re so excited for progress!

 These gorgeous Kerri Shipp drawings make a great statement wall coming down the stairs!


 Blog-writing desk!
 My sink! These mirrors are some of my favorite things in the entire house!
A beach house isn’t complete without a sea turtle!
We thought this guy was going on the screened porch, but we love him here!
This is just a little taste of our progress, and we can’t wait to show you more! Happy Monday, everyone!


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!


House Tour: Leta Austin Foster

Few places on earth compare to Palm Beach when it comes to fabulous, over-the-top design.
But, if loud colors and bamboo furniture everywhere you look are all you equate with Palm Beach style, think again.
This stunning Palm Beach place is crisp, clean and even a little subdued at times.
This neutral palette with pops of blue is, to us, the ultimate in soothing shore decor. And we love the bamboo silverware.
These chairs are so pretty and add such a delicate feel to the room. We’re big fans of dark floors for contrast against a white table and chairs. Plus, bare dining room floors are just practical. Easy sweeping!
It really is those thoughtful touches that take a morning meal from simple to sublime.
Fresh vegetables are always a part of a well-appointed kitchen, ready for laid-back entertaining.
Twin beds are so chic, from kid’s rooms to guest rooms.
We love a chaise, but a comfy chair with ottoman can be just as good.
These lovely ladies prove that true fashion never goes out of style. And few places know style like Palm Beach. We hope you enjoyed today’s home tour. Thanks for visiting us!
