If there’s one thing we can’t get enough of, it’s stylish storage space. From stashing papers to stowing dirty laundry to concealing toys,  baskets are double-duty players when it comes to hiding your junk and displaying your good taste. They’re easy on the earth, easy on your wallet and go with every decor in any room. From the bathroom to the kitchen, there’s a place for natural fiber baskets in every space. Check out these beautiful ways to incorporate baskets into your design.

In Good Taste: Tracy Lynn Design

Tracy Lynn Studio living room

Good morning, readers! We are packing for cold, snowy NYC today to wrap up a few final details before the The Secret to Southern Charm tour officially begins, but….

We didn’t see any reason for you to be cold too! 

So, today, we’re sharing the good taste of  Tracy Lynn Design, a San Diego-based firm whose interiors are as sunny inside as it is outside. 

Cohesion in design is one of the firm’s main goals, after all. 

Tracy Lynn Studio kitchen

And we think it’s safe to say that the interiors of these gorgeous California homes are as inviting as the state–and its people. 

A sleek kitchen, upon closer inspection, is made up of a million tiny details, from the backsplash to the pendant lighting, that make it totally unique. 

And every taste is catered to elegantly and effortlessly. 

Tracy Lynn Studio bedroom

Blues, whites and coral are calming by the sea in a pretty bedroom made for relaxing. 

And even those small spaces that tend to be forgotten become both useful and unique. 

Where better to take advantage of the last bright light of the day than in a huge soaking tub made for relaxation. 

White shiplap and uncovered bulbs juxtapose with a touch of brass for understated glamour that is so very San Diego. 

Tracy Lynn Studio bathroom

It’s nice to keep a global view while brushing your teeth…

Tracy Lynn Studio nursery

And a room that can grow as he does makes for a just-right nursery. We think these beautiful designs are as lovely as they city in which they reside. We hope you have loved the good taste of Tracy Lynn Designs as much as we have! 

Have a great day, chic readers!

Thanks so much to Southern Living for choosing The Secret to Southern Charm as one of this year’s Best Spring Break Reads! Have you preordered your copy yet? (Releases April 3!)

In Good Taste: John De Bastiani Design

John De Bastiani Design entrance

Good morning, chic readers! Talk about making an entrance… We think this foyer is a fabulous way to start the day off right.

John De Bastiani Design living room

Elegant yet comfortable,

livable yet refined,

the good taste of John De Bastiani hits all the high notes of fabulous style.

From a pop of color that makes a kitchen fun and fresh,

To a charming living room perfect for family,

To a bright look that turns a hallway into a moment,

We’re loving the beautiful style of this designer.

John De Bastiani Design bathroom

Just because it’s a bathroom doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be accessorized!

John De Bastiani Design bathroom

A custom, luxurious bath in shades of blue gives this bathroom a totally unique look. 

We are still reeling–and we know you are too–from the events in Las Vegas earlier this week and our hearts go out to everyone affected by this horrible tragedy. You are all in our thoughts and prayers!

Thank you so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by!

In Good Taste: Foley & Cox Interiors

foley-and-cox89

We tend to think of snow and white when Christmastime comes around. But, we have to admit, that this wide expanse of blue is just the sort of thing we could get used to celebrating. No matter what the backdrop, the good taste of the fabulous Foley & Cox will fill your day with inspiration. 

foley-and-cox883

Inspiration is something we could use a little bit of right about now. Usually, we’re pretty much ready for the holidays by this point. We get most of our shopping done by Thanksgiving.

lights

This year, I have done basically no shopping for anyone. (Including myself. I generally end up sneaking a few things for myself in there while I’m shopping for others, so that’s really saying something.)

bathroom

On the bright side, my little guy has only asked Santa for one thing, and I know EXACTLY what it is!!

foley-and-cox93

That’s cause for celebration, right? Because there is nothing worse than when their little hearts are just pining away for something, and they keep telling every mall/dentist office/dock/toy store Santa that they want it and you have no idea what they’re talking about and neither does Google.

foley-and-cox99

When Google doesn’t know, you’re toast.

foley-and-cox-33

But, joyfully, the one special toy has been ordered, and I love shopping for surprises. Five-year-olds are fun to shop for. If only everyone else could be so easy!

foley-and-cox93931

And, with twelve days until our first celebration, I got the wild hair to decorate the kids’ table for our first family Christmas celebration. I’ll be posting on Instagram this afternoon when I finish messing with it. 

foley-and-cox9393

Let’s just say that Meri Meri did not sponsor the table, but they really could have. Santa Party Poppers, reindeer cups, Nutcracker plates, the most adorable placecards ever… Really, it’s just more fun to decorate the kids’ table! 

foley-and-xo

I suspect that it will also be more fun than I’m thinking to do the rest of my Christmas shopping as well. I’m just going to click through one of our latest and greatest gift guides and call it a day!

foley-and-cox1

Or, well, actually…

foley-and-coxe2

If the owner of this beauty would like to whisk us off to Paris for the weekend, we think we could easily finish our shopping there. (Or just snag one of these cashmere throws!) We have to say that, of all the good taste of Foley & Cox, we think this might be our very favorite! 

Have you finished your shopping yet? Either way, we hope your holiday season has been merry and bright so far!
