You know we love a good bookcase–and we appreciate a bookcase full of volumes that are actually read. What a perfect chair to sit awhile and enjoy one of them.

Speaking of fabulous things to fill your bookshelves, I got my very first advance copy of my new novel, Slightly South of Simpleover the weekend. I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it on other people’s bookshelves!

We love the look of stained wood paneling, but sometimes it can make a room feel too dark. This room is the perfect balance of elements that feels light yet warm.

When it comes to kitchens, this designer has incredible range. 

From a charming banquette

to a sleek marble scheme,

A unique backsplash and fabulous herringbone floors

To simple grays and whites with a splash of fun color, kitchen style abounds in this designer’s portfolio.

Striking architectural details can make a bathroom feel super chic.

Whether dark and dramatic or light and bright, beautiful paneling makes a bathroom pop.

A fun light fixture adds so much fun to a gorgeous bathroom. And that tub… Total relaxation!

The nursery might very well be the most fun room to decorate. This one is so adorable and will easily transform from baby to toddler. We love, love Bla Bla animals like the ones in the crib. Cloud the cat is one of little Will’s favorites!

Fabulous outdoor spaces are always, always the icing on the cake–when the cake is a stunning home. This space is perfection. We might never want to go inside!

Thank you so, so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you do!

Beautiful Blue and Orange and a Giveaway!


Blue and orange has long been one of our favorite color combinations. We don’t see it often on the outside of a house, but it is an adorable look!

And, of course, no one does orange better than Hermes.



Beautiful homes and gorgeous landscapes can be a lovely and soothing and fabulous as can be. But, captured from the wrong angle, in the wrong light or… well… by the the wrong person, even the most amazing designs can fall flat. That’s one of the reasons that we were so enamored of Jessica Glynn’s fabulous photos right from the start. She is an expert at casting every design in the right light, making everything she photographs seem in perfectly good taste. We think her work speaks for itself!

 It’s the ultimate go-to color scheme, the pinnacle of fresh and fun and timeless style.

 In crisp solids or bold patterns, from upholstery to Mother Nature’s finest, it’s a scheme that hard to beat.
