The Southern Side of Paradise

Front Porch -The Secret To Southern Charm

There is so much to love about the South. Porch sitting nine months a year…

The magnolia blossoms… There are so many reasons that I love living in the South and so many reasons that I love writing about the South.

And I can’t think of anything more exciting than having a brand new book, the third book in the Peachtree Bluff Series, the sequel to Slightly South of Simple and The Secret to Southern Charm releasing May 7, 2019, called The Southern Side of Paradise!

Maybe it’s the love, family and tradition… But, to us, the South really is paradise!

 

Oli Winward

 

And the particular paradise in my Peachtree Bluff series, my town of Beaufort, NC, is something I recently got to write about for Southbound and Atlanta magazines. And I hope you’ll come visit me in paradise on June 1, 2019, when Peachtree Bluff takes over Beaufort, NC! There will be double decker bus tours, a schmancy, gorgeous dinner, lunch with one of the best views in town… And you have a chance to win a trip! Simply send your preorder receipt to [email protected] (More details here!)

 


 

And now, the final installment of the series, THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE, is releasing into the world May 7, and I couldn’t be more excited! One of my favorite magazines, Southern Living, did me the incredible honor of exclusively revealing the cover and a special excerpt yesterday, so make sure to go check that out! Now, without further ado, here it is, my brand new cover, maybe my favorite one yet!

What do you think?? I hope you love it as much as I do!

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

Concrete Uses for Every Room of Your Home

Architectural Digest

If we’re being totally honest, when we think of chic, luxury materials to make a home super chic, concrete isn’t the first thing that comes to mind.

Architectural Digest

Of course, it makes for a beautiful driveway and a great parking pad and a stunning garage floor. But concrete in the home hasn’t always been on our radar.

 It is now! As these photos will attest, concrete floors are too, too fabulous. Stained or stamped, they can really create any look you can imagine!

Need a shelf that is chic and sturdy? No problem.

Looking for a countertop that is durable and maybe a little bit different? Concrete has your back!

I would have guessed this countertop was slate or even a honed granite. Nope!

We are loving this shade of gray–and this sneaky dog food storage. How convenient!

But concrete isn’t just for built-ins. This fabulous dining table is made of it too! Aren’t those curtains great?

Concrete is such a versatile and functional surface, making it perfect for bathrooms.

While we love the look of concrete that has been polished and sealed, it’s pretty great in its raw form as well.

Concrete has always been an outdoor staple, and this fire pit adds style in droves to an outdoor seating area.

From the garden to the guesthouse, the kitchen to the carport, there’s a great use for concrete in any space!

In Good Taste: Suzanne Kasler

entrance

When it comes to good taste, there’s no one that has it knocked quite like Suzanne Kasler

homes

Always the epitome of grace, elegance and style, Kasler’s homes have a sense of purpose about them. They tell a story. 

refined

Never too stuffy, but always refined, these are the rooms that we go back to again and again to study and learn and fall in love with something new at every turn.

collected

We love the feeling of a room being collected, of it coming together over time, and, though we are sure that there has been a time Kasler purchased everything in a room at once, her rooms always have that collected feeling.

painting

But, at the same time, they never take themselves too seriously. A throw for a chilly day, a whimsical painting… 

abstract-art

Abstract art is always the right choice for infusing a room–even a otherwise staid one–with humor and whimsy. (We spy our FAVORITE tray from Anna by RabLabs on the coffee table!

neutrals

Kasler knows that, when it comes to doing neutrals well, texture is the name of the game. Each of these is more luscious than the next.

light

Bright, light and with the perfect, unexpected palette. 

doors

This room is almost too good! Perfection in every single way! Have you ever, ever seen windows and doors quite this amazing?

accessorizes

The beauty is so often in the details, as with this chic vignette. But Kasler never over accessorizes, which, in our New Year, clutter-free state of mind we really appreciate!

Even the ceiling is a work of art! Dining rooms can sometimes feel a little too stiff and heavy. The color play in this room keeps it from feeling too formal.

dining

Who needs an island when you can gather family around a real dining table? Lovely!

bedrooms

We love all of Suzanne Kasler’s rooms. Really, we do. But the bedrooms?

dreamy

They are positively dreamy. They actually make you want to curl up and go to sleep. It’s genius.

glamour

This dressing area is so feminine and delicate, with the right amount of glamour to make getting ready as much fun as the event itself!

outdoor

This is the kind of outdoor space that has us dreaming of getting outside. With a fireplace that lovely you can do just that, no matter the weather. 

We hope that, no matter the weather where you are, your 2017 is off to a fabulous start!
