Good morning, friends! As another week dawns on this extraordinary time, we hope you and yours are safe, healthy and finding joy where you can!

We don’t know about you, but we haven’t been welcoming many people a single, breathing human into our homes for weeks on end now.

So, if you’re like us and haven’t been visiting too many people, we thought it would be nice to share some of our favorite warm, welcoming foyers that feel like walking into the home of a family member or best friend–even if you’re just right on your couch!

These coastal-inspired foyers make us feel like we’ve just spent a fun day on the beach and are returning to the warmth and comfort of a long-time friend’s home. We hope they make you feel the same!

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!
