House Tour: Jute Interiors

Jute Interiors curb appeal

 

It happens every, single year, without fail. Fall comes, the temperature drops, and we start feeling like we need a farm. Preferably with a bonfire.

Nothing permanent. Just a small getaway, perfectly appointed.

This home from Jute Interiors is basically out of our imagination, that fall, farm, weekend getaway come to life.

This is the kind of place where not a single detail is overlooked, from the walls to the furniture to everything in between.

It is also the kind of place where things are simple. And an open floor plan means that living leads to…

Dining, preferably for friends and family,

At the ideal rustic table where the outside comes in, the simple becomes impossibly chic and the kind of place is set where we would want to be guests. 

 

porch and patio

 

Speaking of places we want to become guests… A lovely pool with equally gorgeous loungers and that farm we’re craving!

A stunning pavilion with plenty of eating and entertaining space.

And that bonfire that we absolutely must have when it comes to fall! Do you love this Jute Interiors home as much as we do?

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! We love seeing you here!

Things We Love: Farmhouse Style Kitchens

Architectural Digest

 

There is something about the change of seasons that always makes us want a change of scenery. As the air gets that first hint of crispness and the humidity starts to fade, we immediately begin dreaming of a little place in the country, maybe in the mountains, maybe on a farm

We imagine gathering fresh eggs and cutting lettuces for salads and sipping mint-infused iced tea in a rocking chair overlooking acres of green.

It’s all so dreamy.

So, no, we don’t have that farmhouse. But that doesn’t mean that our kitchens can’t hold all our farmhouse fantasies. 

 

Period Architecture

 

Beautiful beams, a hint of rustic charm and the sense that everything is better when it doesn’t have to be perfectly in place, help create that farmhouse feel–even if there’s nowhere to house those chickens.

Oh, and a farmhouse sink, of course.

A farmhouse sink is mandatory.

House Tour: Southern Farmhouse Style

Good morning, chic readers! We don’t know about you, but the cold, dark days of winter always have us wanting to bundle up and get outside.

And have us dreaming of escaping to a retreat outside of town, a cabin or farmhouse that feels nothing short of a getaway, like this incredible farmhouse by Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design. and photographed by Holland Williams

We imagine ourselves baking things from scratch…

Warming up by the fire after a day savoring the festive chill of the outdoors…

And, finally, curling up in a cozy, warm, bed, loaded with down comforters, to savor a night of peaceful, quiet sleep.

This Southern farmhouse is the absolute pinnacle of an escape from reality, with a touch of shabby chic decor

A place where every member of the family can feel relaxed,

And where the details make it worth coming home to.

As much as we love every charming element of the interior, including these amazing bunk beds,

It’s what’s outside that is truly special. 

This is a farm after all!

And what could be more beautiful than these sweet faces? Would you want to get away to this charming farmhouse retreat? We know we would!

books

Last week we had the pleasure of spending a fun-filled long weekend in the place that we think gets as close to Christmas magic as you can without going to the North Pole: NYC! I had the most amazing day of meetings with the team at Gallery Books (Simon & Schuster) about all that is THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, the sequel to SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE and the second book in Peachtree Bluff series–and filmed fun videos that I can’t wait to share with you! To celebrate the upcoming launch (April 3, 2018!) and get you in the holiday spirit, we’re giving away a $100 Amazon gift card for your holiday essentials. Enter below!
