 The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer!

And there is nothing that we love more than a great house on the shore of Lake Michigan!

 So we’re taking a little mini-vacation today to this beautiful and calming Saugatuck home designed by the fabulously talented Sam Allen .

Shingled house on the Shore living room

 We love this combination of living room and dining room. It feels cozy and just right for the togetherness of summer evenings.

House Tour: Shingled on the Shore fireplace in the living room

 Just pop a few pieces of wood in this fabulous fireplace, and it can go from summer to winter!

 Styling the coffee table is, to us, one of the most fun parts of a room. Interesting artifacts complement this living room and make the coffee table a real focal point.

 A nautical nod to navy gets a festive update in this beautiful room.

 The pops of orange and pink keep it fresh and whimsical. The dark paint makes this room feel perfectly cozy.

 This chandelier hits the right note between modern and rustic, lighting this dining area in perfect style.

 Feeding a crowd is never better than when the chef can be a part of the fun. This kitchen is just the right amount of open for entertaining.

 The perfect gray cabinets add elegance to this kitchen.

 A stylish office is always better for getting things done! We adore the antelope rug and those amazing chairs!

 From the lacquered nightstand to the bone lamps, every element of this bedroom is tasteful and lovely.

 Luxurious linens are a must for making a bedroom a calming retreat. And that chest is stunning!

We hope you feel a little more relaxed after spending time in this lovely space. We know we do! Whether you’re running around or resting at home today, we hope you’re having a great week!

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).

House Tour: Beauty by the Sea from Urban Grace

Estuary House from Urban Grace

 

Good morning, friends! All we know is that today a good day to explore this Beauty by the Sea from Urban Grace. Actually, come to think of it, there’s not a bad day for that. (Also, can we talk about this gallery wall, please? Perfection!)

 

Estuary from Urban Grace

 

I spent a fabulous weekend by the sea with my Tall Poppy Writer friends soaking up the best of what the Hamptons has to offer. Between a book signing at The White Fences Inn in Water Mill, staying at The Topping Rose House in Sag Harbor, and a handful of other spectacular events throughout the Hamptons, I was thoroughly spoiled. 

 

urban grace house by the sea

 

And, as luck would have it (if you call the inconvenience of a cancelled flight “luck”…) I got to spend an extra night in NYC to boot–and finally meet one of my coolest Instagram friends, Ashley Bellman. She’s a host of New York Live and QVC and all around fabulous. (And nice. So nice. Don’t you love it when that happens?)

 

Urban Grace by the sea family room

 

Plus, since this is a room full of fabulous bookshelves, it seems right to say that I got to go visit my publisher, Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster, and check out a really fabulous display of my forthcoming May 7 novel THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE

 

Estuary Urban Grace

 

All in all, it was a great bonus day in the city, but the real bonus might have been coming home and seeing that THERE IS FINALLY SOME PROGRESS AT MY HOUSE.

 

Urban Grace by the sea

 

If you’re new here, let me get you up to speed: Hurricane Florence invited a tornado friend to have a party at my house on the Carolina coast. Let’s just say they didn’t use coasters, the house has been gutted since September, and they will not be invited back. 

 

Urban Grace by the sea

 

One of my favorite parts of the house is the third floor. It has charming angular rooflines, the best views going and, as of yesterday, shiplap in every nook and cranny. Honestly, I was on the fence about this move, but it is our son’s playroom, and, now that it’s up, I am so thrilled with the decision. It is darling!

 

Urban Grace by the sea

 

If I needed any more confirmation, this beach beauty is making me more confident than ever. 

 

Urban Grace by the sea office

 

It makes use of basically all of our favorite things: steel windows

 

Urban Grace by the sea kitchen

 

The right kind and amount of shiplap in all the right places, (P.S. I’m emailing you for this wash color, Urban Grace!)

 

Urban Grace by the sea staircase

 

And more light than money can buy, which, let’s face it, is the most important part of any beach house

 

Urban Grace by the sea kitchen

 

Urban Grace masterfully combines unexpected touches, 

 

Urban Grace by the sea dining room

 

A nod toward tradition,

 

Urban Grace by the sea entrance

 

And practicality with aplomb.

They should write a handbook, really.

And as for the main event? Well, it isn’t too shabby either… 

We hope you’re feeling warm and sunny now. We know we are! Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
