House Tour: Tracy Hardenburg Baltimore Home

If you loved the good taste of Tracy Hardenburg Designs as much as we did in our post yesterday, you are in for a treat today with this Baltimore house tour! 

This spacious stunner is perfectly choreographed from start to finish. 

Even the hallways are works of art! (And the light fixtures, of course.)

A grand chef’s kitchen is the perfect spot for cooking for a crowd–or a sleeping dog!

Unique finds and fresh accessories fill every stunning space in this home. 

The thing we love most about this house is that, amidst the grand living spaces, there are cozier rooms like this beautiful sitting room, made all the more charming by darker colors. 

This chic, masculine bar is ideal for gathering a group for a cold winter’s night cocktail. 

And, after that, a cozy night’s sleep in a luxurious bedroom, filled with wonderful texture for this cold, cold season. 

Even the bathrooms are in keeping with this house’s vibe. 

We love how Hardenburg has created spaces that are layered, yet uncluttered…

With the right combination of antique and new. 

We love the combination of pretty bamboo and sleek gray and silver in this adorable bathroom. 

For just hanging around, 

Or gathering poolside with friends,

This Baltimore place is nothing short of a sanctuary. What’s your favorite space?

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

What Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“[I]f I recommend one book to you this year (so far), let it be Slightly South of Simple for your first beach read. The darling and charming Kristy Woodson Harvey’s latest novel is the definition of a summer novel. I loved it almost as I love her.”–Jessica, Simply Bedazzled

House Tour: A Well-Collected Retreat

Good morning, chic readers! We have such a treat for you today: A fabulous, newly built Jacksonville, FL home designed by one of our favorite designers, Andrew Howard.

Howard told Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles: “I wanted it to feel like a collected home that had recently been updated.”

Taking a peek around the gorgeous house, we’d say he achieved that goal completely. 

Wood cabinets can make a home feel dark and closed in, but this light color is rich, gorgeous and adds warmth without feeling dark.

This chic banquette is the perfect way to take advantage of a stunning water view. We wouldn’t ever want breakfast to end!

This backsplash and counter scheme is anything but ordinary. As shades of gray go, this is the perfect one.

When it comes to blues, Andrew Howard really knows how to pick ’em. The layered look of this dining room proves that pattern, texture and color can really make the dining room come to life.

Deep blues like this are some of our favorite color picks for 2017. They lend a masculine touch to an office that’s an alternative to traditional wood paneling and, with the right touches, can also be feminine and glamorous.

This spa-like retreat complements the beautiful ocean beyond the doors. The blues and tans bring the outdoors in beautifully.

Speaking of spa-like… This bathroom is positively stunning–and oh-so relaxing.

We think laundry rooms should be lovely if at all possible. Who wouldn’t want to do laundry in this gorgeous space?

One of our favorite things about Andrew Howard’s style is how effortlessly he infuses color into his schemes. This happy poppy color is both restful and fun–the perfect combination!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! We always love it when you do.

A Glimmer of Gray!

While we can’t deny our excitement over the blue skies that have replaced the recent devastation of Hurricane Matthew, everywhere else, we’re still loving a glimmer of gray. From our clothes to our walls to, oh yes, our fingernails, we love welcoming fall with a bit of gorgeous gray. In its darker, more subdued tones, lighter shades or those with a hint of iridescence and tons of warmth, there’s a gray for every mood. Take a peek at a few of our favorites!

Wishing you a start to your week that’s gray in all the right places!



Clean, bright and perfectly appointed, we think this Pacific Palisades palace from Studio McGee is practically paradise.
