Things We Love: A Touch of Gold

All that glitters might not be gold… But the touches in these rooms certainly are. From kitchen hardware to living room chairs, decadent jewelry to decked-out pumpkins, everything is just a little more glamorous with a touch of the always-chic shade. Take a peek at some of our favorite ways to add a touch of gold to your home. (Or, better yet, yourself!)

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey Beach house book
 

I am so excited that my new novel Feels Like Falling releases on April 28!

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.

House Tour: Steeped in History in Greenwich, Ct

 

There is something about a white house with black shutters (bonus for a slate roof!) that draws us right in. Every time. 

 

 

And, in the case of this Old Greenwich home, we’re certainly glad it did.

 

 

Merging the past and present with considerable aplomb,

 

 

This is a home that wows with style, but is still comfortable enough for the whole family.

 

 

Beautiful built-ins in the family room,

 

 

Blend in harmony with the gorgeous kitchen cabinets, creating just another touch that makes this home feel seamless and cohesive.

 

 

This lovely desk takes full advantage of the stunning view beyond the windows, making this the ultimate writers’ retreat.

 

 

This is giving me major excitement about getting back into my house. We’ve reset the tub to take maximum advantage of the view. I can’t wait to be soaking just like this!

 

 

We just love the way the hardwood floors lead out onto the slate onto the grass and into the water. The transition is perfection!

 

 

There is absolutely no doubt that outdoor design is just as important–if not more important–than indoor decor, especially with a yard and view as stunning as this.

 

 

We can’t imagine a more peaceful spot for relaxing at the end of a long day. Wishing you blue skies and calm seas just like this today!

 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We love it when you stop by!
