Open shelving not only makes great use of space but also allows you to display all your favorite things!

We spent a lot of time picking out china and glasses, serving pieces and cookbooks, and we’re sure you did too!

Why hide them away when they could become kitchen accessories?

While steel and wood lend a more modern, rustic vibe. Paint your shelving and it blends right it,

Or go with glass to make it stand out! However open shelving comes, we’re huge fans of this streamlined look.

Would you choose open shelving or stick with cabinets? 

We hope you had the best weekend, friends! Thanks for making Design Chic a part of your day! We always love seeing you here!

Creating a Dream Home–Down to the Last Detail

What do you think of when you hear the term “dream home?”

For us, so many different things come to mind. 

We could dream of a tiny farm cottage with a picket fence and trailing ivy…

Or a sprawling country estate with horses and plenty of room for beautiful gardens

A quaint ski chalet…

Or a cedar shake New England home with plenty of room for visiting guests. 

For us, a dream home could be anything, really, where we are surrounded by things we love–and people we love, of course. 

No matter how you define “dream home,” we feel pretty sure that this qualifies as one. 

The Fox Group.  has created an enviable space with so many stunning details it would be impossible to pick a favorite–

And we would could look at these photos a thousand times and still find something new to delight and inspire. 

From open shelving on a very luxe level,

To extraordinary hardware, 

Marble as far as the eye can see, 

To a workspace for everyone in the family, 

Each perfectly orchestrated area of this family house makes it feel like home. 

We think it would be nearly impossible to pick a favorite room, a favorite detail. But if we had to, we think the bathroom in this dream home might take the cake! 

What is your idea of a dream home? Is is luxurious, modern and spacious like this or something a little simpler? We’d love to know! 

We hope you had an amazing weekend and are so grateful that you stopped by Design Chic to spend a bit of your Monday with us. We always love it when you do!
