Good morning, chic readers! We hope that, wherever you are, you are staying warm, warm, warm today! After a very rare snow on the coast of NC, we are looking forward to warmer weather in the week ahead. One of our favorite things to do at the beginning of a new year is look back and see what our readers loved most the year before–so that we can do more of it! Here’s a peek back at our Top 10 Most Popular Posts of 2017. We hope they bring back fond memories!
Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We are so grateful for all of our readers who have given us another amazing year of Design Chic to look forward to!
Resolving to read more this year? Pick up your copy of Slightly South of Simple, the first novel in my Peachtree Bluff series, and preorder book 2, The Secret to Southern Charm, releasing April 3! I have the best readers in the whole wide world! Thanks so much for your support.
We talk a lot on Design Chic about combining the old with the new. Grandmother’s silver on your tulip table, fun buffet lamps on an antique buffet, a new, shiny bar cart filled with Grandfather’s decanters. There are so many fantastic ways to incorporate the old with the new on the inside. But, on the outside? It’s harder to pull off. Perhaps that’s why we’re so enchanted with Kevin and Lee Kleinhelter’s gorgeous Atlanta home. (We’ve talked about Lee’s Good Taste before.) It’s streamlined and modern but still feels familiar.
For outdoor style and adding loads of curb appeal, few things top the timelessness, simplicity and style of a climbing vine. Fresh and festive, with flowers or without, we adore this look for turning a plain exterior into something extraordinary.
For smaller bedrooms, awkward shapes or multi-purpose rooms where guests might stay, no piece of furniture is as versatile as a beautiful daybed. Perfect for sitting or displaying statement-making pillows, the only problem with some of these daybeds is that they’re too beautiful for sleeping. Take a look at these pictures and we think you’ll agree. Happy Thursday, Friends!
