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!

And some kitsch-free, nautical-inspired flavor,

Combine to create a home that is truly a showstopper

 

 

 

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

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

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.

In Good Taste: Ham Interiors

Ham Interiors entry with Blue door

A Carolina blue door and a black lab? There’s really no better entrance if you ask us. (Although, in Henley-on-Thames, where this gorgeous door resides, we’re pretty sure it isn’t called Carolina blue.) Ham Interiors, our big time design love this week, combines classic sensibilities with stunning architecture for spaces with purpose, with style and, most important of all, with that certain undefinable something that makes a house feel like a home. Leave your wellies by the door, brew a cup of hot tea and take a peek at these cozy, livable houses that are so unforgettably chic you’ll undoubtably find yourself daydreaming about a few little changes for you own home. Enjoy!

Ten Favorite Porches for Outdoor Living

Good morning, chic readers! We love being outside.

Outdoor entertaining is one of our favorite things about this fabulous season.

And we can always use a little porch inspiration!

Whether your porch is neutral or bright, has wicker furniture, wrought iron or teak, we can all agree on one thing:

porch outdoor living room
Historical Concepts

 

It should be comfortable!

Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Shophouse outdoor living room

We believe that outdoor spaces should coordinate with indoor ones, be an extension of the home’s decor–but, perhaps, with a touch more color and whimsy.

Then again, neutral surroundings that let the natural beauty shine are fabulous as well.

A beautiful fireplace is like icing on a fabulous cake.

And, of course, the view makes the porch.

With a view like this, you can’t help but want to get outside! Needless to say, these stunning photos have done nothing to cure our need for outdoor living! Are you sprucing your porch?
