In Good Taste: Allison Elebash Interiors

After three weeks at home finishing the edits for my next book, The Secret to Southern Charm, I’m back on the road today for two NC events today and two tomorrow. While I’m on the road I’ll be thinking about some of the sprucing I need to do before the fall–some fun, like replacing my bar stools and finding spots for several new pieces of art. And some not so fun, like replacing the roof. 

If you’re daydreaming about your home today, let the good taste of Allison Elebash Interiors inspire you like it has us.

Fun color palettes, 

Multi-purpose pieces like this beautiful bar cart,

And art that makes a major statement are only a few hallmarks of this talented designer’s interiors. 

We are huge fans of designers who aren’t afraid to mix it up with lots of color, and we’re swooning over this yellow and white Ikat. We’re loving all that is yellow right now–and who doesn’t want to be reminded of summer all year round?

This blue and white polka dot is slightly more subdued but no less eye catching. Skirts like these are a fun, inexpensive way to transform an old piece of furniture that needs some love into a focal point once again. 

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Library lamps are one of our new obsessions–especially as the seasons begin to change. The cooler air means more time indoors snuggled up with a good book. The perfect light and a perfect throw make that even more desirable. And now I’m adding a pair of those to my list for fall…

Speaking of spending more time indoors… It’s the perfect time to invite a few friends over for a fun fall cocktail. There’s nothing like a good drink and great company to take the edge off of a cold night. 

We hope you’ve enjoyed the good taste of Allison Elebash interiors as much as we have. Wishing you a wonderful day!

When it comes to standing out, it’s the little things in a home that can make the biggest impact.

And creating memorable details is what Beau Clowney Architects do so incredibly well.

Painted beams and a water blue backsplash add beachy beauty to this lovely space.

And natural elements from the sea combine with traditional blues for a unique feel that is casual and a little dressy all at once.

A pretty banquette is even more beautiful in blue and white, while statement lighting unifies the space.

For added privacy for kids and adults alike, it’s hard to beat these adorable drapes on the built-in bunks. Rope handles finish off the look in style!

A beautiful fireplace with a stunning piece of art is always a favorite focal point for us. And the symmetry in this room is absolutely stunning.

We love a house that’s designed to take advantage of every square inch of view–and shiplap ceilings lend a coastal feel.

Porches and patios are hard to beat when it comes to taking advantage of living in gorgeous places. These shutters are a chic and convenient way to close it up when it’s time to go home. 

Whether on the front, back or side, these architects really know how to make an entrance .

This classic style is so well done. We love the black and white with touches of copper. 

Speaking of welcoming, who wouldn’t want to be a guest at this gorgeous home? We know we would! 

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love seeing you. For more of these stunning designs follow Beau Clowney on Instagram!

In Good Taste: Steele Street Studios

Good morning, chic readers! We love, love Tuesdays, especially when we have a heaping helping of good taste to share with you.

Today you’re in for a treat with the fabulously good taste of Steele Street Studios.

We love the simple elegance of this fabulous kitchen.

Out of this world brass hardware is the perfect finishing detail to take it over the top. 

Sleek pendant lighting and bar stools combined with industrial chic stainless lend this kitchen a modern look.

If you’re going to have to work at home sometimes, why not make it amazing? Plenty of built in bookcases provide chic storage. 

Crisp yet cozy, this pretty bedroom hits all the high notes of style. 

We love, love, love a chalkboard wall, especially in a playroom. It’s an inexpensive fix for larger walls that breeds creativity. 

We grown-ups love our reading nooks. Shouldn’t our little ones get their own too? This one would make even the most reluctant reader want to spend an afternoon in a fictional world!

Playroom art doesn’t have to be expensive. Little ones love seeing their own masterpieces hanging. 

One of the most important elements in any playroom is the floor space. And, of course, cute places to put everything away when the play is finished!

This gender-neutral nursery is adorably sweet.

Any little one would be lucky to call this nursery home! From the grown-ups to the kids, Steele Street Studios makes every space totally extraordinary. Which is your favorite?

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

Happy Tuesday, friends! We hope your week is off to a great start–and we know it’s about to get better. The good taste of Kishani Perera is sure to make you smile!

You know we love a good bookcase–and we appreciate a bookcase full of volumes that are actually read. What a perfect chair to sit awhile and enjoy one of them.

Speaking of fabulous things to fill your bookshelves, I got my very first advance copy of my new novel, Slightly South of Simpleover the weekend. I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it on other people’s bookshelves!

We love the look of stained wood paneling, but sometimes it can make a room feel too dark. This room is the perfect balance of elements that feels light yet warm.

When it comes to kitchens, this designer has incredible range. 

From a charming banquette

to a sleek marble scheme,

A unique backsplash and fabulous herringbone floors

To simple grays and whites with a splash of fun color, kitchen style abounds in this designer’s portfolio.

Striking architectural details can make a bathroom feel super chic.

Whether dark and dramatic or light and bright, beautiful paneling makes a bathroom pop.

A fun light fixture adds so much fun to a gorgeous bathroom. And that tub… Total relaxation!

The nursery might very well be the most fun room to decorate. This one is so adorable and will easily transform from baby to toddler. We love, love Bla Bla animals like the ones in the crib. Cloud the cat is one of little Will’s favorites!

Fabulous outdoor spaces are always, always the icing on the cake–when the cake is a stunning home. This space is perfection. We might never want to go inside!

Thank you so, so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you do!
