A Cottage by Tammy Connor Designs

Tammy Connor Interior Design cottage living room

Summer may be coming to an end, but we think the fall is one of the absolute best times to enjoy a seaside cottage, like this beautiful one from Tammy Connor Designs.

If you’ve ever seen a winter sunset at the beach, you know what we mean.

And there’s something really special and unique about curling up with a cozy throw and a good book inside a beautiful home and watch the water go by.

This is the kind of place where we would love to do just that!

We think the best beach cottages have a little bit of history, the feeling that generation after generation has loved them and made them feel like home. A gallery wall of family photos and treasured memories adds that exact feeling to this charming spot.

When we think of beach cottages, we think of simplicity, especially because they are generally closed up for at least a part of the year. These built in nightstands are a great touch.

Twin bedrooms are practically a requirement for a cozy beach cottage.

Unexpected three-dimesional objects can become art when used correctly!

A single leaf makes for a perfect, simple accessory!

Chunky baskets are the perfect place to store those cozy throws and stacks of books we were talking about curling up with!

If a twin bedroom is good, a built-in bunk room is so, so much better.

Curtains and storage make these spots cozy and private for guests of all ages.

We love using a desk as an end table for sending postcards home.

As perfectly coastal as the interior of this home is, the outside is even more incredible. There’s no better place than a swing to watch the waves crash to the shore.

And a screened porch is perfect for keeping the mosquitoes at bay.

This picture-perfect cottage is the right mix of old and new, modern and rustic for relaxing all year long. What’s your favorite part?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

In Good Taste: Melissa Ervin Interiors

We hope you had an amazing long Labor Day weekend, chic readers, and that you found some time for fun and a little time to relax as well! I got my first taste of being a plane commuter, flying to Atlanta to speak at the Atlanta Journal Constitution‘s Decatur Book Festival and then flying back home that night so that I could spend two long, lazy beach days with my boys. I’m glad I don’t have to do it every day and have a new respect for people whose daily commute involves a flight, but it wasn’t so bad just this once–and totally worth the down time after!

The “No Lifeguard on Duty” signs are going up, the September Vogues are in mailboxes and on newsstands, and there is that unmistakable crisp in the air that can only mean one thing: It’s fall! We think this gorgeous living room by Melissa Ervin Interior Design looks every bit of this wonderful season.

No place is perfect, but one of the things we love the most about North Carolina is that we get to anticipate, feel and savor each and every season.

Right now, we’re so excited for boots and tailgating, fall leaves and pumpkin patches, all of those things that have such incredible staying power. Speaking of staying power, we first featured this fabulous kitchen on Design Chic several years ago, and we love it as much today as we did those years ago!

We know that there’s probably no such thing as “timeless,” but there’s no doubt that Melissa Ervin’s designs have major staying power.

We hope your fall is off to a fabulous start. Thank you so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

In Good Taste: Andrew J. Howard Design

It’s no secret that we are crazy for Phoebe and Jim Howard. So it seems to follow that we would positively adore the fabulous designs of their son, Andrew J. Howard. He may have  famous parents, but his inspiring designs stand all on their own. Andrew Howard’s fresh, relaxed style with a coastal touch makes it easy for us to say that this designer’s work is in good taste!
