We’re feeling blue this weekend–in the good way!

 Since it’s the beginning of Labor Day weekend, we’re trying to bring in some good, blue vibes!

 Blue skies and blue water, and, of course, blue interiors.


Bathed in Blue

Windsor Smith Home

Happy Friday, friends! First, we’re so sorry about the issues we’ve been having on our blog lately and the pictures being slow to load. We have some great people working on it, and hope that it will all be fixed by Sunday. (Seriously this time…)

AND, I have some exciting news! I (Kristy) recently signed a book deal with Berkley, an imprint of Penguin Random House, and my first novel will be out early next Spring! Yay! I probably don’t even have to tell you that the main character is an interior designer! So, to counteract our slow blog problems, we’re posting the rest of “Bathed in Blue” over at my new blog! There are some gorgeous blue and white photos (and a great quote!) that you won’t want to miss!

It won’t take the pictures long to download and you can let me know what you think of my new author site. (Shari at Little Blue Deer is working on it!) You are, after all, my most stylish friends! And, don’t worry. The new book/blog won’t affect Design Chic one bit! We hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Blue and White

Lynn Morgan Designs
 It’s the ultimate go-to color scheme, the pinnacle of fresh and fun and timeless style.

 In crisp solids or bold patterns, from upholstery to Mother Nature’s finest, it’s a scheme that hard to beat.


Happy, White and Blue!

In all shades, shapes, sizes and spaces, there are likely few color combinations as well loved, timeless and versatile.

Even just a hint of blue is enough to liven a white space. These fun pendants and fabric add so much interest to this pretty kitchen.

Blue and white can be as bold as can be.

Bright and patterned and incredibly eye catching.

And then, in the next room over it’s just as soft and soothing and lovely. And that’s what we think we love about it so much. It’s the perfect color combination to spread throughout a home, combine in coordinating tones and create a different feel in every space.

At the end of the day, blue and white is just fun! Maybe it’s because it’s reminiscent of the sand and ocean and sky — and this fabulously, frighteningly fun convertible!

In one breath, blue and white can be a throwback, reminiscent of a simpler time, as cozy and warm as an old stone hearth.

Then, in the next, it can be a whimsical yet ultimately calming tented room.

There’s no doubt that blue and white out the window is our favorite. But this stunning frock is a pretty close second!

A mix of shades and patterns keeps blue and white from being anything but boring.

Even though it comes in thoroughly modern patterns,

It is always a classic! (And I have always been so crazy for Defender 90s… And my birthday is coming up, so if anyone has one they want to send my way…)

Speaking of classic, this amazing faucet has such old world, European charm.

To those words we should never forget, blue and white always makes us happy!

Wishing you a day full of happy, no matter the color palette. Thanks for visiting us today!
