Even bathrooms that aren’t big on space (obviously this doesn’t qualify as one of those!) can be big on style. And getting creative with the floor plan can make it all fit in.

Add a Coastal Touch with Serena & Lily

coastal design with Serena & Lily

 

Good morning, chic readers! If you’ve been following along, you might know that I have been on book tour for my new novel, The Southern Side of Paradise, for the past three and a half weeks. I have had an absolute blast, but am so excited to get a couple day break to go home for Memorial Day weekend! It’s officially beach season, and I live at the beach, so the timing couldn’t be better!

Our Hurricane Florence renovations have been going on for the past nine months or so, and we are seeing a light at the tunnel and are so looking forward to moving back in soon. Going home has us dreaming of replacing what we lost and getting ready for what is, in our opinion, the most fun season! A great start? This gorgeous foyer table. Classically chic with a touch of coastal, it doesn’t get better!


 

Serena & lily - blue and white- coastal living room

 

To us, there’s no more important room than the living room. From family TV nights to cocktail parties, we use ours every day. Have a versatile, durable, and, of course, chic coffee table at the center of it all is a vital part of this all-important space.


 

coastal breakfast room from Serena & Lily with wicker chairs and a round dining table

 

We love a gorgeous breakfast room, and this one practically shouts, “Good morning!” With the sun beaming through the windows, this is the perfect place to gather around the dining table to greet the day–and the chairs are the perfect touch of coastal chic.


 

coastal dining room from Serena & lily with Riviera chairs

 

Of course, whether to eat in the breakfast room or this gorgeous dining room would be a touch choice. The fabulous chandelier, stunning but streamlined, ties the room together.


 

coastal bedroom with Serena & Lily

 

To us, coastal style in the bedroom requires nothing more than crisp, clean, white bedding. This is too pretty for words–and the touch of sea blue ties the look together. 


 

bathroom with coconut shell chandelier and wicker stool from Serena & Lily

 

Nothing punctuates a bathroom quite like Serena & Lily towels. And this tiny table? Perfection! Have we mentioned that we are swooning over this coconut shell chandelier? Take it from us, it’s even more gorgeous in real life!

We had the best time on this “before & after” Serena & Lily collaboration at our house. Unfortunately, this room is gutted… But we’re hoping to be “after” ready again soon!


 

bathroom with Serena & lily stool

 

This laundry basket and stool were two of our favorite parts of last year’s Serena & Lily Collaboration. Fortunately, we were able to salvage both of them!

If coastal style is welcome indoors, it’s almost mandatory outdoors. We love everything about this beautiful porch!


 

Dining alfresco with Serena & Lily with slipcovered chairs

 

Dining al fresco has never looked so good!

Just one more day until we’re relaxing poolside… and we’re only days away from Serena & Lily’s Memorial Day Sale too! For all you style needs–especially your coastal ones–no one does it better. (And, we don’t know about you, but we can’t resist a sale!) The Memorial Day Sale will be open to the public 5/22-5/28. Everything will be on sale with code SUMMERPREP, excluding final sale, gift certificates, art, and the limited-edition PUBLIC® C7 Bike. Don’t miss it!

At Serena & Lily, living well (and summer!) begins at home!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by! Happy Memorial Day Weekend, friends!

Bathroom Organizing in the New Year

Happy New Year, sweet friends!  Bathrooms are perhaps the most utilitarian rooms in the house

But that doesn’t mean they can’t also be the most beautiful

After all, the room we spend a good portion of the moments right before waking and sleeping should be somewhere we feel relaxed, invigorated and totally calm.

We’ll admit that we can get pretty excited over any element in the bathroom.

Sinks that look as much like jewelry as somewhere to wash your hands are always welcome in one of our rooms.

And — it is the new year after all — if it is gorgeously, fantastically organized then we really can’t stop dreaming of it!

When space allows, decorative details that make the bath feel as accessorized and beautiful as the rest of the house are a must! This beautiful lamp and silver tray are inspiring us!

Speaking of… Of all the elements that combine to make a gorgeous bathroom, the bathtub is by far our favorite!

Tub or no tub, big bath or tiny, one, simple thing that we can all do to make our baths feel light, luscious and beautifully designed is keep a tiny (or big!) vase full of fresh stems right on the vanity. 

What a wonderful way to start the day!
Wishing you a day full of beautiful things!

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

_____________

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

House Tour: Alys Beach Retreat

Home of Interior Philosophy Co-Owner

 

Even though it may not officially be fall yet, Labor Day always feels like the end of summer–to us, anyway. 

We are always sad for the end of summer, with its carefree beach days and long, lazy boat hours. Of course, fall has plenty of its own charms–football season, boots, pumpkin spice lattes… (In case you haven’t heard, they’re back!!)

Even still, we’re already dreaming of Spring Break! 

For this year’s late April Spring Break, we think the weather–and the beauty–of Alys Beach will do quite nicely. 

To facilitate our Spring Break dreaming we wanted to take a look around this fabulous Alys Beach home. 

The think we love most about this 30A enclave–besides its pristine white sand beaches and clear blue water, of course–is its soothing, uniform palette. 

This beautiful home builds on the exquisite creams and browns and neutrals of the chic beach town’s exterior, making the entire thing feel cohesive. 

Unexpected accessories lend a touch of the exotic and a bit of the British Colonial to the home’s overall feel. 

Every room–even the bathroom–is set up to take advantage of the breathtaking view that lies beyond.

And despite this home’s upscale elegance, nothing feels too precious. 

It’s the kind of place where sandy feet can tread and memories can grow. 

It will still be weeks before we pack up our bathing suits for the winter and pull out the boots, months before the winter doldrums have time to cast their shadow and sink in. 

All the while, we’ll feel happy and light knowing that another April, another Spring Break, and the promise of the sunny skies and stunning landscape of Alys Beach are just around the corner! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends! We always love it when you do!
