All come together to make a space that takes the simple parts of the day and makes them extraordinary.

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.

We love little touches that make a bathroom feel homier.

Things We Love: Streamlined and Chic

Studio McGee

 

In the post-Marie Kondo world, everything has changed. 

 

 

If tidying up is life changing, so is streamlining. Studio McGee has mastered the perfectly finished but never overdone look in this stunning California home.

 

 

Sure, some stuff brings us joy. But do you know what brings us more joy? Clean countertops!

 

 

And getting rid of the waffle iron that I was certain would make me the world’s coolest mom. You know the kind. It had all the plates so I could make ghost waffles or Christmas tree waffles or heart waffles or Mickey Mouse waffles or whatever. You know who doesn’t make great waffles? Me. Do you know who does? Nature’s Path. 

 

 

I tend to be a food hoarder. I don’t know why. I blame it on not having a Whole Foods close by and getting there three hours away and thinking Wait. Do I have too much quinoa or do I need more quinoa? And then I buy the quinoa and then I get home and I already have four bags and how on earth are the three of us going to eat that much quinoa? That stuff expands. But these shelves are goals if ever there were goals. No food hoarding in this kitchen.

 

 

I am, fortunately, a bit of a bathroom minimalist already, so that’s slightly less of a challenge. Even still, a vanity with lots of storage is part of the plan for my post-Florence bathroom. 

 

 

We’ve always thought that freestanding tubs look minimalist. Mine arrived a couple days ago. It is absolutely gorgeous. And 1400 pounds. There will be a crane involved. Don’t worry. I’ll post a video on Instagram! (@kristywharvey)

 

 

Baskets everywhere are the absolute best for storing until you can get to things so they don’t become clutter. 

 

 

And who really needs all that stuff on the nightstand collecting dust? Well, I mean, I have a pile of books the size of a small SUV, but I am reading those. So they aren’t collecting dust. They’re necessary.

 

 

Are you a fan of the streamlined and chic look? Or are you in the more is more camp? They certainly both have their merits, and we adore them both!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We love seeing you here!

We’ve said it before, and we’ll probably say it again: Fabulous furnishings are nothing without stunning photography. Perfectly filled bookcases look off balance, ideally proportioned chairs look too small… The list goes on and on and on. But, in the hands of a skilled professional, each room looks just as chicly amazing as it does in real life–and in the mind of the designer who dreamed it.

This is undoubtedly a tricky space to style. We never would have put this together, but it’s fabulous!

The femininity of the furnishings pair beautifully with more masculine dark wood and horns. Perfect for every member of the family!

This soaking tub pairs extraordinarily with these beautiful rugs.

The juxtaposition of the raw wood ceiling with the crystal chandelier is gorgeous. The entire space makes a one-of-a-kind statement.

And, thanks to the lens of Alyssa Roseheck Photography that captured it all so well, we are sure you agree. We hope your day is wonderful!

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).
