House Tour: Andrew J. Howard’s Florida Dream Home

dream home Andrew J Howard curb appeal

 

Good morning, chic friends! You are in for a treat today! You know that Andrew Howard is one of our favorite designers. We’d been waiting for the right time to tour his fabulous home. And, with so many of us stuck inside, today seemed like the perfect time to tour a Florida house that feels like a vacation.

One of our favorite things about Andrew’s work is how effortlessly he uses bold color, plenty of pattern, and pulls it all off in a way that seems totally seamless. That is evident from the moment you walk through the front door of the home he and his wife Katie designed and built from the ground up. The hand painted mural and mosaic tile were chosen with the couple’s two young sons in mind.

We love how Howard tends to design for family life. One of his top priorities while outfitting this home was to make sure that it contained plenty of spaces for the family to gather together. Mission accomplished!

The ceilings in this perfectly curated home are never overlooked.

Especially in the dining room, which often lacks the opportunity for detail that other rooms have naturally, extra attention to the ceiling, architecture and wallpaper makes the space come to life.

Blue and white is a go-to color combination for many. For Howard, a blue and white base allows for the layering of other colors, which he does so well through the home.

We especially love the charming kitchen, where architectural details positively steal the show.

A built-in banquette provides a breakfast area perfect for a family, saves space and allows plenty of light to shine through.

Every element of this family room is uber-sophisticated, but the art and fabrics provide enough whimsy to make it suited for family living.

The ceiling really sets this chic space apart.

Add a soaking tub, and you have master suite perfection!

While Howard’s own, signature look is always at play in every room, this one exudes Florida style.

And the color palette and bamboo touches exude that classic Florida look–reimagined in a brand-new way.

Kids’ spaces are always the most fun, aren’t they? These built-in bunk beds are some of the most charming we’ve seen. And stairs that double as drawers make a fabulous use of space.

Pattern-on-pattern is always a good idea–especially in kids’ rooms! It adds instant energy.

From a bathroom for two,

To a positively chic laundry room, the Howard’s home has it all. Not one detail was overlooked in the creation of a family dream home. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to see what Howard does next! 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!!

House Tour: Andrew J. Howard Interior Design

One of the things we love most about Atlanta is the variety of ways to live. From sprawling estates to the chicest of uptown city living, there is an incredible mix that suits every style and taste.

This gorgeous Atlanta condo by our friend Andrew J. Howard is a perfect example of classic city living done right.

The pied-e-terre might be classically associated with Paris or New York but this chic Atlanta condo feels like just that. Georgia is the Empire State of the South, after all. (It’s amazing what you learn while researching for a series set in Georgia!)

In our humble opinions, Andrew Howard is one of the best of the best when it comes to mixing color and pattern to create a certain feel. In this smaller space, a more subdued color scheme creates a calming yet fun environment.

Here, pattern on the ceiling contributes a touch of whimsy to this beautiful bedroom retreat. This color scheme is perfection–and far from boring.

We’re not sure who else could have combined all of these patterns to create this cohesive look, but, in the hands of Howard, the results are incredible. We love the agate slices on the wall for bringing a touch of the outdoors in.

Even the smallest spaces in this Atlanta condo are perfectly choreographed.

A mix of calming neutrals creates the perfect soothing space for waking up slowly and getting ready to face the day ahead.

The magnificent city view doesn’t hurt either. Even in this tiny outdoor space, Howard remains true to his design scheme and creates a chic and comfortable look perfect for sipping and stargazing. For bringing big style to a smaller place, we think this lovely Atlanta space hits the high notes of style. Thanks, Andrew, for letting us share with our readers!

And thanks, Atlanta, for the warm welcome on the Slightly South of Simple tour. From an amazing event at Boxwoods to a brunch with friends at the Piedmont Driving Club, talking to readers at FoxTale Book Shop and Bookmiser and dinner at Le Bilboquet (with, let’s be honest, just a hint of shopping in between!) it was a fabulous couple of days!
