House Tour: Seagrove Beach Retreat

Seagrove Beach Retreat kitchen

We don’t know about you, but we could use a little getaway this week. We can’t think of many places we would rather get away to than this gorgeous Seagrove Beach retreat

This beautiful, sprawling kitchen is the absolutely ideal spot for feeding a crowd.

There’s no such thing as too many cooks in the kitchen in a space like this. 

Seagrove Beach Retreat dining

The only thing better than plenty of space for cooking is plenty of space for eating. This charming nook is the right mix of glamour and beachy style. 

Seagrove Beach bar

Speaking of charming nooks… Could this bar be any better?

In Good Taste: Talbot Cooley Interior Design

traditional living room from Talbot Cooley

Good morning, our chic reader friends! Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope all of you know how much we love our readers! To prove it we’re sharing a heaping helping of great design today!

living room from Talbot Cooley

When it comes to wonderful taste, we know you’ll agree that when it was dished out, Talbot Cooley got more than her fair share!

living room from Talbot Cooley with lucite

Her interiors are rich and luxe without being over the top, clean and modern without being off-the-wall. We are swooning over these lamps… And the painting, of course! We can’t get enough yellow these days.

kitchen with steel windows Talbot Cooley

In short, every room makes us want to take a second look! It can be tough to find the perfect accessory for an island. This shell filled with orchids is a beautiful statement.

kitchen with wood island from Talbot Cooley

Wooden beam, stainless, lucite barstools, marble… All of our favorite materials in the same place! 

wood plate rack from Talbot Cooley

A little bit rustic and a little bit upscale, this kitchen is the perfect mix of elements. So chic!

dining room from Talbot Cooley

The simplicity of this dining room is so refined. It’s the kind of place where good food and good company can take center stage!

steel windows and doors in ding room from Talbot Cooley

Steel windows make such a chic statement. We think we love them most like this, when they let the outdoor light in!

Beautiful bedroom from Talbot Cooley

Cozy and crisp, this master bedroom is the ultimate in relaxation. The little sitting nook in the window is so sweet.

What could possibly be better for kids than an adorable bunk room? This one is sophisticated enough to be suitable for adult sleepovers too! Check out more from this great designer!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you visit!
