House Tour: Bald Head Island

lights

 We must have North Carolina on the brain this week! A gorgeous designer yesterday… A fabulous house today…

 Of all of the amazing and travel-worthy spots in our state, Bald Head Island is one of the most unique — and one of our favorites! Leaving your car on the mainland, traveling by ferry and getting from place to place via golf cart couldn’t be more of an escape or more relaxing. And Lisa Sherry of Lisa Sherry Interieurs‘ Bald Head home couldn’t be more fabulous or swoon-worthy if it tried! (She’s pretty fabulous herself!)

 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!

Making the Bed

Phoebe Howard Design
When it comes to gorgeous bedroom design, we think it’s all about the pillows. 
Phoebe Howard Design
They may be the butt of quite a few jokes — think Along Came Polly and the knifing of more than a few innocent pillows — but those few extra minutes in the morning are totally worth the effort.
Francie Hargrove Design
This classic three throw pillow design is always a safe bet.
Eric Cohler Design Via House Beautiful
But for a no-fuss, streamlined pillow scheme, two, perfect shams are all it takes!
Phoebe Howard Design
We absolutely adore a settee at the end of a beautifully made bed – 
Mario Buatta via Architectural Digest
And staying away from a matchy pillow scheme makes it even better.
Phoebe Howard
A fabulous lumbar pillow works well on a twin.
Leontine Linens
And we are always in favor of a showstopping monogram.
Leontine Linens
Two small bolsters are incredibly charming.
Amanda Nisbet
And a mix of textures adds tons of interest.
Phoebe Howard
For a no-fail way to add pizazz, never be afraid of color! We love this spunky shade!

Things We Love: Painted Paneling

Dresser Homes
Nothing adds that infusion of laid-back, casual style like painted paneling.
Heather Bullard Photography
It is that spot of well-worn, “Oh, I’ve been here before” wisdom that can define an old home and make a new one feel seasoned.
Jessica Glynn Photography
It’s that touch of dimension and texture that makes a plain, white wall feel anything but boring.
Gianetti Home
It’s a simple way to give an infusion of style to those small spaces without making them seem overwhelming.
Matthew Sapera Design
Of course, we probably don’t even need to tell you that we love it most in a beach house.
Coastal Living
Even if you don’t have one of those great, old cottages with original, breathable tongue and groove, it makes it feel that way.
Kay Douglass Design Atlanta Homes Magazine
I’ve just realized that this post is supposed to be on painted paneling in general… It seems we might have a penchant for white. What a surprise!

White painted paneling is such a pretty contrast to a dark table and floors. 
Tracery Interiors
Plus, it just makes everything feel light, open and airy.

And, when you get right down to it, we can’t really think of a better way to feel!
Oh my goodness… Is it Thursday already? Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?!
