In Good Taste: Verandah House

Verandah House sunroom

Good morning, chic readers! You know how we love the thrill of finding new designers we love. And do we ever have some fabulous talent to share with you today!

Verandah House

When we stumbled across the good taste of Verandah House Interiors, it was a love at first sight kind of thing.

This Australian duo designs houses in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Sydney, Melbourne and more–and we want to go visit! Business trip, right?

Jess and Judy say:

 “Our design aesthetic is very much the new American classic look, adding a modern sense of luxury that is fresh, stylish and timeless. Its important to us that our work doesn’t fit one style, we try to give each client a unique look and tailor our designs and finishes to suit the way our clients love to live, a casual sensibility.”

What your favorite bloggers are saying about The Secret to Southern Charm:

From fab Tina at The Enchanted Home

The Secret to Southern Charm beach book

“5. CALLING ALL READERS. I am so thrilled for the amazing success my fellow blogger and friend, Kristy Harvey is having with her wonderful books, and with good reason. She has captivated so many with her wonderful, heart warming, funny stories (all that take place in the south is an extra bonus) and knows how to really engage her reader, her books are the kind you don’t want to close.

 You know those kind of books that you wish you could literally jump into and become a part of the story ? Think Nicholas Sparks meets Elin Hinderbrand….yes they are that good. I can hardly wait to delve into her newest, The Secret to Southern Charm. I just know her books are headed to the big screen one day:) Click here to preorder yours” — Tina, The Enchanted Home

In Good Taste: Muskoka Living Design 2

With the way the weather has been lately, we’ve been dreaming of cozy fires and charming cabins. 

Muskoka Living Design manages to create that perfect cozy, cabin feel by balancing light and bright with darker, more rustic touches

From perfectly stained floors, 

To charming buffalo check, 

A quintessential “cabin” light fixture, 

to a cozy fireplace and a snuggly throw, 

Muskoka Living Design creates spaces that feel chic, stylish, bright and airy while still maintaining the feel we love for this sort of weather. 

These Ontario designers specialize in “casually sophisticated living,” and, we don’t know about you, but we think they have absolutely nailed it. 

Every detail is perfectly choreographed for comfort and livability with so much character. 

These open garage doors are perhaps one of the coolest hacks we’ve seen. Talk about bringing the outdoors in!

Now this is a boathouse. It blends seamlessly with the rest of the decor to create a smooth transition from outdoors to in–and a safe home for a most treasured possession. 

Does it get any better than this? We don’t think so! Thanks so much for stopping by and making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!

House Tour: Costa Rican Retreat

Costa Rican

Where some homes are made to stand out, others beg to fit in, to take a backseat to let the beauty around them take center stage.

This Costa Rican gem featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles is one of those homes, which seems to serve the purpose of accentuating the beauty around it. 

Costa Rican

Featuring limewashed cabinets and plenty of fresh fruit, this is the perfect vacation kitchen for fueling up before heading outside for the day.

An earth-toned palette seems to blend seamlessly with the outdoors beyond the windows. 

We think the best vacation home are those that are relaxing and calming retreats.

Simple, uncluttered accents and coastal colors lend that beach oasis feel. 

Bamboo, rope and natural objects like coral are elegantly coastal.

Natural wood finishes and white washed walls lend an organic feel that captures the essence of Costa Rica.

Nautical stripes and shades of blue lend a little fun to this gathering spot.

This charming take on a bunk room lends sleeping quarters for plenty of guests!

Of course, the best part of any beach oasis is the outdoor space. The natural stone is absolutely stunning.

A calming pool with plenty of chic lounging space adds to the outdoor experience.

No matter how beautiful the pool, it’s hard to beat the beauty of the Costa Rican water.

Despite the fabulous interiors of this home, we have to say that, with this right outside the door, we would want to spend all of our time right on this beach, surrounded by the splendor of nature. 

Thanks for making Design Chic a part of your day!

House Tour: Sea Island

living-room

Sea Island Cottage

Good morning, friends! Welcome to Sea Island, Georgia! We are most excited to share this stunning home with you and to announce that my new novel, Slightly South of Simple, is coming out April 25, 2017! If you’re wondering how these two things are related it’s because Slightly South of Simple is the first in a series set in the fictional, seaside town of Peachtree Bluff, Georgia, which is very (fictionally) close and geographically similar to Sea Island!
