I had the best day yesterday in Louisville, KY with my friends Michelle and Jennifer from Black, White & Kuhl.

They gave me the full Kentucky experience, from appearing together on Great Day Live to a super fun Junior League Book Club Event. I know why Louisville is considered one of the friendliest cities in the country!

Talk about making your week bright! There’s nothing better than meeting readers in new cities–and finding new cities to love!




This fabulous laundry room is the kind of place we would actually want to do laundry. Bring on the folding!




Dining al fresco is always welcome in the summer months. These pretty blue napkins are the perfect complement to the sea right beyond.




A beautiful back porch is a home’s must-have, especially during the southern months. If it has a screen, all the better!




This fabulous bedroom shows that a room doesn’t have to be big on space to be huge on style.




Everything about this exterior is amazing, but we think the wood door is our favorite touch.



  Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

Why I’ve Got the Blues (And I Think You Should, Too)

I am so excited to be here today! Design Chic is one of my favorite blogs because Beth and Kristy always make everything fun and exciting!

Over at my blog, Restyling Home by Kelly, you will quickly notice I have a passion for using color in design. A passion especially for the color blue! I have always loved all blues, but dark navy blues make me happy and that is very evident in my own home. Blue is such a great neutral, and it works so well with other colors:


Navy blue is the perfect color in bringing other colors together as well as being a great color on it’s own:

I adore a blue and white room, don’t you? :
