House Tour: Designed by Kara Hebert Interiors

Kara Hebert Interiors entry  

 

Happy Wednesday, friends! Hasn’t this week just flown by? It has for us, anyway. 

 

Kara Hebert Interiors living room  

 

We are so excited because after one year, one week and six days (but, again, who’s counting?) of being out of the Beaufort house, we are doing photo shoots for our fab friends at Serena & Lily there today! 

 

Kara Hebert Interiors kitchen  

 

So, no, we’re not move-in ready or anything, but after a lot of blood, sweat and tears (and painters up on ladders with hair dryers trying to get trim finished!) we have not one but TWO rooms that are ready (ish) for their close-ups! Make sure you pop back by on Friday to check out the kitchen. We’ll also be showing off the third floor, which is mostly playroom but also a little bit family space, next week!

But, today, we’re super thrilled to be touring someone else’s house! This light, bright, beautiful home by Kara Hebert Interiors, gorgeously captured by Brantley Photography, has us feeling calm, relaxed and super inspired.

We love every little bit, but we have to say that this stunning piece by EMYO art might be our favorite focal point. We’re having serious art envy!

Artichoke lamps from Stray Dog are the icing on the cake! What is your favorite element of this lovely home?

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey

Feels Like Falling preorders are rolling in! Get yours today!

 

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her evangelical husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a busted Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn, but when the one that got away comes back, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.

House Tour: Historic Sag Harbor Home

Sag Harbor Home designed by Steven Gambrel entry with Dutch Door

 

Is there anything more charming than a Dutch door? We don’t think so! It sets the tone perfectly for this gorgeously appointed, perfectly chic historic home, one of Sag Harbor’s jewels. Sleek nods to the home’s past blend beautifully with updated features to create a livable home with loads of charm. We had the best time touring it–and hope that you do too!

In Good Taste: Janie Molster Designs

Janie Molster entrance

Good morning, chic readers! We are so excited to have the fabulous Janie Molster,  with us today, answering our burning questions–and lending a few tips! Thanks for stopping by, Janie, and for sharing your gorgeous work with us.

Janie Molster library

How did you get started as a designer?
My friend had business cards printed for me.  I think everyone close to me could see this path for me, except me.  Once I dove in, it became crystal clear.  I had always been somewhat obsessed about my environment–staying up all night in rental apartments painting the walls until they were exactly right, etc. When my husband and I bought our first house and I was able to flex my design muscle a bit more, I got some calls and requests for advice and help and and here we are.

Janie Molster dining room

Where do you get your inspiration?
I have been asked that question before and honestly, my answer changes constantly.  Last night I received a couple of new shelter magazines and sending a quick shout-out to my design industry peers–YOU inspire me!  I love to see what other people are creating and I love to watch trends.  I may not hop on every one but creativity breeds more creativity.  Following others in my field and having an inspiration group to bounce ideas off of is so valuable to me.

Janie Molster kitchen

Do you have a favorite project to date? Or a favorite type of project that tends to be your favorite?
It’s often the last project.  I begin missing my clients and our frequent talks and trouble-shooting sessions.  We call it “uncoupling”…very hard.  Right now I am in the midst of something wonderful: a large lodge in the Allegheny mountains.  The lodge sits adjacent to another project we have done for the same clients (our 5th project for them).  Needless to say, we have a great understanding of each other and things are coming together seamlessly.  The lodge will be a second home on the property with a few bedrooms as well as entertaining spaces geared for large events–almost like a mini-conference center with a residential perspective. There are some amazing craftsmen on the project. Stay tuned.

Janie Molster kitchen

What is your favorite tip for making small spaces feel larger?
Use fewer, bigger pieces and edit, edit edit.  People tend to think in a small space, use small furniture and clutter things up with teensy tables and chairs.   Also important is to use large room-size rugs that hug the perimeter of the space.

Janie Molster bedroom

What is the biggest challenge you face as a designer?
Skilled labor.  The trades that I rely on daily are harder and harder to find.  Fyi…we are always hiring: Conservationists who can repair antique furnishings and art, seamstresses who can produce couture-quality window dressings, custom upholsterers, decorative painters, etc.  

Janie Molster bedroom

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment to date?
No question, mothering 5 children.  If I can share any wisdom to other designers, especially those in the throes of parenting, always choose family first.  I am blessed that my career has successfully weathered the storm of a few years of intermittent attention.  There were times when I was barely keeping my foot in the door of the design world–so I guess that’s the answer.  Biggest accomplishment: Keeping my foot in the door.

Janie Molster bedroom

Are there any designers that particularly inspire you?
I am in love with all of the upholstery designs by John Saladino.  His pieces were innovative on day 1 and they never feel dated.  I also love what Susan Ferrier is doing with McAlpine.  While her work had a moody edginess about it, she fully embraces femininity.  She doesn’t shy away from pretty–she sets it on fire.

Janie Molster porch

Ebooks or hardbacks?
Hardbacks for sure.  Give me a rainy day and stack of my dog-eared design books–Nirvana.
M&Ms or Skittles?
green peanut M&M’s…they bring good luck 🙂
Coffee or tea?
coffee.  Can’t tie my shoes in the am without it.

Favorite color?
pink, every shade
Accessory you couldn’t live without?
personal?
It’s the leather lariat I have worn every day for years.  It’s light and simple–I can run, swim and sleep in it.  It fits snug around my neck and has a simple gold ball at the end.  My dear friend, Atlanta jewelry designer Jeanmarie Quarterman made it for me.
decorative?
My collection of vessels and sculptures by New Orleans artist Julie Silvers that move around my house all the time–looking perfect in every room.  
Go-to paint color?
Love trim and doors in Galveston Gray by Benjamin Moore.

Janie Molster porch

Thank you so much for stopping by today, Janie! We loved having you here–and couldn’t love your beautiful designs any more!
