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!

 

wood

 

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

 

dining

 

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

 

porch

 

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

 

bedroom

 

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

 

wood

 

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!
