In Good Taste: Allison Elebash Interiors

After three weeks at home finishing the edits for my next book, The Secret to Southern Charm, I’m back on the road today for two NC events today and two tomorrow. While I’m on the road I’ll be thinking about some of the sprucing I need to do before the fall–some fun, like replacing my bar stools and finding spots for several new pieces of art. And some not so fun, like replacing the roof. 

If you’re daydreaming about your home today, let the good taste of Allison Elebash Interiors inspire you like it has us.

Fun color palettes, 

Multi-purpose pieces like this beautiful bar cart,

And art that makes a major statement are only a few hallmarks of this talented designer’s interiors. 

We are huge fans of designers who aren’t afraid to mix it up with lots of color, and we’re swooning over this yellow and white Ikat. We’re loving all that is yellow right now–and who doesn’t want to be reminded of summer all year round?

This blue and white polka dot is slightly more subdued but no less eye catching. Skirts like these are a fun, inexpensive way to transform an old piece of furniture that needs some love into a focal point once again. 

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Library lamps are one of our new obsessions–especially as the seasons begin to change. The cooler air means more time indoors snuggled up with a good book. The perfect light and a perfect throw make that even more desirable. And now I’m adding a pair of those to my list for fall…

Speaking of spending more time indoors… It’s the perfect time to invite a few friends over for a fun fall cocktail. There’s nothing like a good drink and great company to take the edge off of a cold night. 

We hope you’ve enjoyed the good taste of Allison Elebash interiors as much as we have. Wishing you a wonderful day!

A Stunning Staircase for Every Space

Phoebe Howard Design

 

In many homes, the stairs are the very first thing you see when you walk in the door.

Whether they are simple or ornate, bare or expertly covered, the stairs can set the tone for the experience people will have when they walk through the door.

In that way, the stairs become the perfect place to create a stunning vignette, a shining moment, that helps define the way the home looks, and even more importantly, the way it feels. We love how the curve in this stunning staircase seems to fit this table. It’s the perfect welcome.

This absolutely breathtaking architecture takes the staircase to a whole new level. This isn’t a staircase that makes a statement upon entrance, it’s a staircase that is a defining part of the home’s entire scheme.

But as much as we love stairs, residential elevators are pretty cool too, such a luxury for hauling groceries and luggage and, of course, a necessity for many. With a chic carpet and a fun light fixture, they can be fabulous looking too!

Speaking of lighting, picking the right fixtures is a must for us in the stairwell. Not only is it crucial for lighting the path but it also helps create a chic design scheme in what could be a plain, boring spot.

To even a gorgeous spiral staircase that not only serves a purpose but also accessorizes a space,

The staircase is so much more than just a utilitarian feature in a home.

With the right attention, it can become another one of a home’s shining moments.

Slightly South of Simple/The Secret to Southern Charm

In Good Taste: Nest & Company

From older houses to brand new, Nest + Company orchestrates perfect interiors, the kind of spaces that transform houses into homes.

One of our favorite things about these designers is that their rooms feel like the kinds of places where every member of the family can feel comfortable. The mix of masculine and feminine in this room feels cozy without being prissy.

Organic shades and natural elements are always the right choice. We love that the bursts of color in this neutral breakfast room come from fruits!

Each of Nest Interiors spaces feels uncluttered and clean, exactly the way we want our homes to feel. The juxtaposition of this modern light fixture with a farm table is so charming.

Of all the spaces in our houses we love to be bright, the kitchen might be our favorite. Maybe it’s because it’s where we start our days, but we love the light streaming in. These original hardwood floors add character galore and give this home a sense of history, despite its modern facelift.

Talk about a view! Wow! This kitchen takes advantage of every inch of spectacular water vista. This kitchen is chic enough to stand alone but simple enough to let the views be the main event.

But these designers are far from one note. Vivid pops of color and whimsical pattern infuse this kitchen with family friendly style.

Simplicity steals the show in this comfy reading nook–and makes a strong case for utilizing the perfect house plant. We love everything about this!

A comfy porch that lets the breeze in is exactly what we need this fall! It’s the perfect season for opening the windows and savoring the breeze. This space is instantly calming.

Layered rugs are a cozy way to really define a space. Speaking of great floors, we’re loving the painted hardwoods we can see in the adjoining bedroom!

This little boy’s bedroom is nothing short of adorable but still in the tone of the rest of Nest + Company’s flawless designs.

A mudroom is, to us, one of home’s great luxuries! It’s a simple spot that keeps the rest of the house looking incredibly chic and clutter free to show off all that hard design work!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, chic readers. We hope you loved Nest + Company’s good taste as much as we did!

Creating a Beautiful Bedroom with Arhaus

*Sponsored by Arhaus

Arhaus bedroom

Good morning, chic friends! We don’t know about you, but we are so enjoying the beginning of this crisp, fall weather. We love being able to curl up by a fire and draw closer to home–and it automatically makes us think of the upcoming holidays and spending time with family and friends. 

Arhaus bedroom

Every year, we try to begin thinking about the holiday season as early as possible so that, when it gets here, we have time to savor the special moments, not rush around constantly trying to get our homes in order and buy all those last-minute gifts. 

Arhaus bedroom

After a long, fun summer of visitors, it was time to start thinking about sprucing the guest bedroom–and our friends at Arhaus had everything we needed for a fall makeover that will last well into the holidays. Arhaus’s skilled curators travel the globe looking for the best hand-crafted, unique, high-quality items to complement your home’s chic decor.

Arhaus bedroom

These stunning linen drapes, for example, completely transformed this guest room. The original drapes were beginning to fade and looked a little tired after four years on the wall. We were instantly taken with the thick fabric, quality liner and well-sewn hook pockets in these curtains. The hooks were customized to the drapes, and it was the easiest drapery hanging we’ve ever done. We didn’t even get poked, prodded and cut by drapery hooks! 

Arhaus bedroom

We love the relaxed look of these linen beauties. They gave a fresh new look to the entire space!

Arhaus bedroom

Speaking of linen, our holiday guests will be lounging in pure luxury. These linen sheets and pillowcases are crisp and perfectly made. We would consider these heirloom linens, the kind that can be passed down from generation to generation. The quality is that superior. It’s something we rarely see these days. 

Arhaus bedroom

These gorgeous Arhaus baskets are not only pretty. They’re functional too! The sturdy leather handles and superior weave of these baskets are ideal for transporting items. And, sometimes, if you’re like us, you have a few items that need to be tucked away before the guests arrive. A great set of baskets is perfect for that–or for storing supplies guests need like extra towels, books or magazines. 

Arhaus bedroom

Nothing says, “welcome,” quite like a sweet vase of flowers. We love the shape of this vase–and it’s a reminder of Arhaus’s commitment to ethically sourced, recycled, environmentally friendly choices. From glass to wood to copper and stone, Arhaus is committed to reducing its carbon footprint–and never sources wood from endangered rainforests.

We love the pattern of these pretty, comfy pillows. They’re perfect for a bedroom, couch or chaise–and they can be yours! Check out the details below to win these pretty pillows–and a $200 Arhaus gift card!
