House Tour: Beth Webb Designed Lake House Part 1

 

Need a vacation today? Join us on a tour of this fabulous Beth Webb Interiors Lake House!

 

 

If you’ve been around Design Chic for long, you know we’re huge fans of Beth Webb’s stunning style. 

 

 

And this luxurious lake house proves all the reasons why. 

 

 

Laid-back, unfussy style that still manages to be finished and beautiful, 

 

 

Warm and inviting spaces that spell vacation,

 

 

The right pop of color and pattern, 

 

 

And the perfect artwork for every space, 

 

 

All combine together to create a glorious, textured home that epitomizes laid-back luxe.

 

 

We are suckers for library lights and believe that they make any bookcase that much better. Although, if it’s a Beth Webb designed bookcase, it’s perfect already!

Thanks so much for spending your summer with Design Chic. We love seeing you here!

House Tour: Bahamas, Marshall Watson-Style

Bahamas house tour living room

This post comes with a warning: You are going to want to go on vacation stat when you see it. 

Bahamas house tour dining

But, well, we suppose that’s what Marshall Watson Interiors had in mind when designing this gorgeous Bahamas home.

Even in the photos, we can tell that it’s one of those places you walk in and instantly feel relaxed and free.

And that’s how the Bahamas should be, right?

Um, is that a secret sliding bookcase? We NEED one of those! Doesn’t everyone, really?

And this color palette… It’s too good!

The sophisticated yet relaxed furnishings lend that Bahamian air feel in total sophistication.

Exposed wood ceilings make everything feel relaxed and just the tiniest bit rustic.

Vacation homes shouldn’t take themselves too seriously. This charming bedroom is case and point!

Under the sea, by the sea!

A mix of prints and patterns brings this bedroom to life.

We love, love wide stripes. Do you? We think they add instant style!

But, as much as we love the interior of this home, we have to say that this exterior is our favorite!

The pool… The chaises… The lushness all around… Who wouldn’t want to spend Spring Break lounging on this perfectly orchestrated porch? We know we would! 

If you love Marshall Watson as much as we do, you must, must check out his new book, The Art of Elegance: Classic Interiors. Our copy just arrived, and it is fabulous! 


And speaking of books… Slightly South of Simple launches in less than three weeks! The lovely Katie Clooney at Preppy Empty Nester included it in her April Books, TV & Movies. She said, “I just finished it, and in a few words, I loved this book.” Thank you, Katie!

 

House Tour: Birmingham Beauty

home-and-garden

Good morning, chic readers! Birmingham, Alabama is one of our favorite southern cities, and this Birmingham House by architect James F. Carter gives us one more reason to add to the list of reasons we love this southern enclave.

gardens

With all the modern amenities of a brand new house,

southern

But the stately details that overflow with old southern charm. 

black-and-white

Can you get any more classic than those black and white floors?

bookshelf

Those stairwell areas are always hard to decorate. How many pictures do you need? How do you space a gallery wall? This bookshelf idea is totally genius!

speaking

Speaking of bookshelves and Alabama (and speaking of speaking…) I have the privilege of speaking at Hoover, Alabama’s Southern Voices, which is most certainly a bucket-list item of mine, Saturday, February 25.

dining

It will be such a privilege to present alongside some of my personal favorite authors, Rebecca Wells (the Ya-Ya Sisterhood), Chris Bohjalian, Julie Cantrell, Mary Kubica and Karen White, along with a few that I am so excited to get to know. If you’re in the area, come see us!

readers

I am going to go out on a limb and say that I think these homeowners might just be avid readers.

wood

Bookshelves in every room are the kind of statement we like to make!

paneling

This paneling is just exquisite. It’s hard to believe that this is a new house!

brass

Navy and brass is a classic color combination that we can’t get enough of. 

kitchen

It is perfection in the kitchen, the perfect shade to feel deep but not heavy.

hardware

We think one of the major characteristics that separates the old from the new is hardware. This lock makes the door look like it has been there forever!

bedroom

Sloping rooflines add such character.

paint

Did we mention charm? Oh, the charm!

nook

What a perfect little nook for working–or daydreaming. 

bathroom

Classic details, beautifully implemented, are always in style. We think it’s safe to say that James Carter has gorgeously good taste.
