Things We Love: Blonde Wood in Every Room

We don’t know if it’s true that blondes have more fun. (Although, as a lifelong blonde, I could made a strong case for it!) But we’re pretty sure, if these gorgeous homes are any indication, that blonde wood make a house more fun.

Nothing says “party” quite like a beautiful bar. This one has so many fun elements and this chest is the perfect base. The mix of woods here is fabulous!

We’ve never seen anything quite like these blonde wood pendants! They are incredible and blend so well with the bar stools. Can we talk about these vases too? All we know is that we want them!

Hardwoods are obviously a perfect choice for kitchen style. We love them in a variety of shades, but we think a lighter flooring choice feels casual and fun. What do you think?

The great thing about using wood is that you really can’t go wrong when mixing and matching shades, stains and color tones. These rustic, distressed beams pair perfectly with the more refined wood below.

We are still loving the casual air farmhouse tables lend, even to more formal spaces. Paired with a natural fiber chair, it’s such a great look!

To more subdued tones or neutrals, every color pairs well with blonde wood!

We’re a little jealous of all this organization right by the back door. (It’s nearly impossible to believe, but I still don’t have that mudroom I’ve been thinking about for months…)

Shiny and fresh or raw and rustic, we love blonde wood any old way! Are you a fan?

In Good Taste: Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Good morning, chic readers! We hope your Tuesday is off to a terrific start. If not, all of that is about to change! 

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Cynthia Hayes and Pamela Manchester of Cynthia Hayes Interior Design have created a bevy of eye candy to brighten even the dullest Tuesday!

Blonde wood, natural fibers, lots of light, and fabulous lighting to boot…

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

These spaces utilize neutrals–complemented with plenty of texture–to create an oasis-like feeling. 

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

These designs are, to us, simplicity at its finest, spaces that complement the outdoors and focus on the natural beauty all around. 

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Pops of color enliven the entire space and natural elements prove that accessorizing can be easy!

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Even the Cynthia Hayes Interiors laundry rooms are in good taste. Baskets are our absolute favorite way to keep organized. Do you use them?

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

We love wood on the floors…

But wood on the walls is a fun alternative and achieves the same feel, especially in bathrooms where tile floors are super easy to keep clean and germ free–a real concern during flu season!

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Pretty patterns in light colors add so much interest to walls. We love the touches of blue. 

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Slanted ceilings can be so charming, as this twin bedroom proves. We love the molding and extra touches here. Looks like the perfect place for a sleepover to us!

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

No matter how gorgeous the inside, you know the outdoor spaces are always our favorites. You can’t get more classic than teak chairs with white cushions. This looks like the perfect spot for whiling away a summer day. It will be here before we know it!

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love seeing you here–and hope you are recovering from the post-Super Bowl exhaustion!
