Things We Love: The Beauty of a Basket

Shelley Johnstone

 

If there’s one thing we can’t get enough of, it’s stylish storage space. From stashing papers to stowing dirty laundry to concealing toys,  baskets are double-duty players when it comes to hiding your junk and displaying your good taste. They’re easy on the earth, easy on your wallet and go with every decor in any room. From the bathroom to the kitchen, there’s a place for natural fiber baskets in every space. Check out these beautiful ways to incorporate baskets into your design.

House Tour: Carolina Cottage

Janie Molster Designs

Good morning, chic readers! We don’t know how the weather is where you are, but the past couple days here have been warm, sunny and absolutely gorgeous! We are having major Spring fever, savoring every second outside–and hoping that that groundhog was wrong and this warm weather is here to stay.

Whether you’re really having summer weather or just dreaming about us, take a little mini-vacation with us today to this beyond fabulous Carolina cottage designed by Janie Molster.

There is nothing like beach cottage, with all those historic touches, to take us back to beach trips of our childhoods.

The thing we love most about this home is how Molster mixes those sweet, nostalgic touches–like wood paneling–with bright updated style.

This island is the perfect spot for sandy feet and pimento cheese sandwiches!

Fresh watermelon and strawberries from a roadside stand become accessories in this kitchen. 

Exposed beams and painted floors lend a classic look, 

While bright linens lend fun, fresh vacation-worthy appeal. 

All I can say is that I wish I had seen this earlier… We had so many pairs of red Keds! What a fun way to incorporate them into the style.

Bold red and pretty marble update this bath, while hexagonal tile remains a throwback to a simpler time that’s still completely on trend.

Nothing says “beach retreat” like a fabulous kids’ room!

Beach towel goals!! We can’t decide which is cuter, the towels or the basket!

At the beach, driftwood really is the best accessory!

This utterly charming, classic exterior ties it all together–and, y’all, that view. This looks like the kind of place that has made a thousand memories and will make a thousand more. Thanks for touring with us today! We hope you love this Carolina cottage as much as we do!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

What Jena Pate of Our Southern Roots is saying about The Secret to Southern Charm!

“Kristy just has a way of capturing the beauty of the Georgia coast through her writing that make you feel like you are sitting right there amongst all the action while you read. The characters are all so well developed and you get attached very quickly.I would obviously recommend picking up Slightly South of Simple if you haven’t already, then pre-order your copy of The Secret to Southern Charm… this book will take you on an emotional roller coaster in the best possible way and leave you wanting more….and impatiently waiting for book three in the series :)” — Jena Pate, Our Southern Roots Blog

Things We Love: Luxe Laundry Rooms

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had a terrific 4th of July holiday and found a little time for resting and playing!

Holiday weekends are always so fun. What’s less fun is catching up on all the things we put off doing during them… like laundry.

 

Of course, the laundry doesn’t have to feel like such a chore, not when the laundry room can easily become one of the most stunning rooms in the house!

A few simple design elements like fabulous tile and paint can transform a laundry room into a fun and whimsical space that makes doing the laundry just a little more fun.

 

A punch of color adds lots of life to this laundry area. And black and white tile are a forever favorite. 

Whether you have lots of space or just a little, a few simple touches can help transform the laundry room from a bleak, dull space to somewhere that makes laundry time just a little more fun! Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We hope you have a great one!

What design bloggers are saying about Slightly South of Simple

“Kristy captures the voices of a mother and 3 grown daughters in an authentic way. I would describe Slightly South of Simple as a sunny day at the beach, with a few menacing, cloudy twists.  I’m glad to hear this magnetic read is the first of a series on this family of strong, independent women, landing again in Peach Tree Bluff. I loved it!” —Heather, Style Mind Chic
