House Tour: Lovely Lakeside

Lakeside Georgia home designed by Brandon Ingram with interiors by Ashley Gilbreath 

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope your Wednesday is off to a terrific start. We are so excited to tour this gorgeous lakeside Columbus, Georgia home designed by Brandon Ingram with interiors by Ashley Gilbreath.  We’d say it’s the perfect retreat to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you need a little break,  put your feet up, take a deep breath, and take a tour of this calming and oh-so-chic spot! All that’s missing is a tall glass of sweet tea!

My next novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING, releases April 28, 2020! I can’t wait to share this tale of Gray and Diana, their unlikely friendship, their summer loves and their chance at happily ever after, the sequel, with all of you. It’s never too early to preorder from your favorite local bookstore or online retailer!

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.

Things We Love: 2020 Kitchen Design Winners

Happy second day of 2020, friends! We hope your brand new decade is off to a terrific start and that your resolutions are going great–if you made any, that is. (Of course, we think you’re perfect the way you are!)

 

kitchen design winners brass hardware

 

Here in Beaufort, we celebrate New Year‘s twice, once at 7 pm and once at midnight. At 7, disgraced pirate Captain Shack walks the plank covered in the ill humors and bad intentions of all the people of Beaufort.

He jumps and washes out to sea, as does the negativity of the year before, making way for a fresh beginning. (To be clear, it’s a fake pirate…) It’s such a fun symbol of letting go of the past to make way for the future. Plus, there are bonfires and s’mores, so that’s a bonus.

 

kitchen design winners with brass pendants and wood stained island

 

When it comes to fresh starts in the New Year, I bet quite a few of us begin in the kitchen, clearing away the clutter (and the candy!) of the old year.

If you’re looking for some kitchen inspiration to start your 2020 off right, look no further! This year’s Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles kitchen design winners know more than a few things about what’s new, what’s next and what’s fresh in all things kitchen.

We are love, love, loving seeing lacquer in these beauties.

And chic organic elements are always welcome. They give this kitchen a distinct feel.

Brass is still happening,

Bar stools just keep getting cooler (and more distinctive),

And, of course, space for family and friends and plenty of warmth defines these gorgeous rooms, which are the heart of the home to say the least. We’re taking notes, making lists, and getting lots of ideas for a 2020 refresh in our own kitchens. What about you?

House Tour: Nice in Neutrals

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

We are big fans of all sorts of decor. Bright and bold, rustic and farmhouse chic, whimsical and fun…

 

neutrals in living room designed by Phoebe Howard

 

But, if we had to pick a favorite, nothing, to us, creates a soothing home–the kind that makes you exhale when you walk through the back door–quite like a palette of neutrals with a touch of blue

 

dining room designed by Phoebe Howard in neutrals

 

In this dining room, pattern and texture create a room that is soothing but never boring,

And an uncluttered feel in keeping with the color scheme makes for a relaxing TV room with plenty of comfortable seating for the whole family.

This chic light fixture proves that neutrals don’t need to be boring,

And, sometimes, the simplest vignettes are the chicest. (This chair has us swooning!)

Some houses feel absolutely pitch perfect, each room flowing to the next and the next effortlessly. From a sunlit kitchen,

To a serene bedroom suite, this lovely home is most certainly one of those.

This is the kind of home that we could move right in, sleep soundly and forget all the stresses of life. What about you?

House Tour: A Beautiful Mix of Designer Style

Phoebe Howard

 

After touring the 2019 Atlanta Homes Designer Show House, I’ve had this fantasy of these designers coming to my house and each taking over a room, leaving a breathtaking finished product. Each one has his or her own distinct style but somehow, when they are taken as parts of a whole, these designers’ disparate ideas combine seamlessly into an idyllic home with undeniable flow. But don’t take our word for it. Step inside, stay awhile, peruse until your heart’s content. And then–trust us–do it all over again. You aren’t going to want to miss one gorgeous detail!

House Tour: Lauren Elaine Interiors

Good morning, chic friends. Our hearts are heavy this morning, as we know yours are, thinking of our friends in the Bahamas and the rest of Dorian’s path. 

 

Lauren Elaine Interiors living room

 

As we head inland today, there is no time that we are so poignantly reminded of the importance of home, of its impact on our lives, our families and our well being. It goes without saying that our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.  

 

Lauren Elaine Interiors living room

 

When it comes to expressing ourselves and creating a space that feels uniquely like us–and our families–there truly is no place like home

 

Lauren Elaine Interiors living room design

 

That’s something that designer Lauren Lowe and her husband Brandon, owners of this Classic Redux, know all about. 

 

Kitchen in blue and white Lauren Elaine Interiors

 

When they moved into their freshly built home after putting their touches on, they knew right away that something didn’t feel quite right. 

 

 

This 1930s Collier Hills home, however, was full of the charm and character that their new home was missing. 

 

 

Add an antique art and furniture collection that the couple negotiated with the sale of the house, 

 

 

Special, modern touches,

 

 

And a heaping helping of talent from Lowe and you have the recipe for a perfect home for a family of three. 

 

 

But this designer’s favorite part of the renovation?

 

 

Creating a sweetly chic space for her baby son–

And a place where she and her husband–and the family’s dog!–could share their little boy’s first special moments. We don’t know about you, but we think this charming home is perfect from top to bottom! What’s your favorite space?

Exclusive Peek Inside a Lake Martin, Alabama Home by Susan Ferrier

 

Good morning, chic readers! Do we ever have a treat for you today. We are so excited to give you a first look at a stunning Lake Martin, Alabama home, designed by Susan Ferrier, one of the leading interior design talents in the southeast and beyond, and David Baker of Tippet Sease Baker Architecture, featured in this month’s Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.

 

 

 

Elizabeth Ralls, editor in chief of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, describes how this duo “thoughtfully designed each room in the house based on its relationship with the surrounding lake” to create a getaway that was the perfect fit for the magazine’s May issue, whose theme was “the intersection of cozy, contemporary design with escapist appeal.”

 

 

While the interiors are stunning, the setting is equally as impressive. The home is surrounded by the lake on three sides, and, Ferrier said, “the effect is a total immersion of the nature and the lake throughout the interiors.”

 

 

The juxtaposition of luxe and low-key, dark and light, texture and a touch of whimsy, create a getaway that is, in the words of Ralls, “decidedly glam.” Ralls said that Ferrier’s “best-of-both-world’s mentality” created a space that was also clean and soothing.

 

 

Like the other homes in this issue, this Alabama getaway proves that, “destination design doesn’t have to be cliché,” said Ralls. 

 

 

This home is absolutely anything but. It is an inviting gathering space that is also very much of the moment, and, as Ralls said, “genuinely exudes that sense of warmth and hospitality that Southerners are widely known for.”

For Ferrier, “This was always a story about the best way for a family to be together on this beautiful point that reaches into the lake.” And that shows at every turn.

 

 

“It’s the perfect summer home,” Ferrier said. “The goal was for the water to be the last thing you see right before you shut your eyes at the end of a fun day on the water or for a well-deserved afternoon nap.”

 

 

What could possibly be better than that? 

 

 

The latest issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, which Susan Ferrier calls, “a leader in the design community,” hits stands (and mailboxes!) today. For more on this stunning Alabama home, visit Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles
