Good morning, chic friends! You are in for a treat today! You know that Andrew Howard is one of our favorite designers. We’d been waiting for the right time to tour his fabulous home. And, with so many of us stuck inside, today seemed like the perfect time to tour a Florida house that feels like a vacation.
One of our favorite things about Andrew’s work is how effortlessly he uses bold color, plenty of pattern, and pulls it all off in a way that seems totally seamless. That is evident from the moment you walk through the front door of the home he and his wife Katie designed and built from the ground up. The hand painted mural and mosaic tile were chosen with the couple’s two young sons in mind.
We love how Howard tends to design for family life. One of his top priorities while outfitting this home was to make sure that it contained plenty of spaces for the family to gather together. Mission accomplished!
The ceilings in this perfectly curated home are never overlooked.
Especially in the dining room, which often lacks the opportunity for detail that other rooms have naturally, extra attention to the ceiling, architecture and wallpaper makes the space come to life.
Blue and white is a go-to color combination for many. For Howard, a blue and white base allows for the layering of other colors, which he does so well through the home.
We especially love the charming kitchen, where architectural details positively steal the show.
A built-in banquette provides a breakfast area perfect for a family, saves space and allows plenty of light to shine through.
Every element of this family room is uber-sophisticated, but the art and fabrics provide enough whimsy to make it suited for family living.
The ceiling really sets this chic space apart.
Add a soaking tub, and you have master suite perfection!
While Howard’s own, signature look is always at play in every room, this one exudes Florida style.
And the color palette and bamboo touches exude that classic Florida look–reimagined in a brand-new way.
Kids’ spaces are always the most fun, aren’t they? These built-in bunk beds are some of the most charming we’ve seen. And stairs that double as drawers make a fabulous use of space.
Pattern-on-pattern is always a good idea–especially in kids’ rooms! It adds instant energy.
To a positively chic laundry room, the Howard’s home has it all. Not one detail was overlooked in the creation of a family dream home. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to see what Howard does next!
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!!

One of the most common questions I get asked on book tour is about my editing process. If you want to know a little more about the process of making my sixth novel, Feels Like Falling—which releases April 28, 2020–come to life, check out this quick snippet!
It’s safe to say, this book is my favorite one yet from Kristy!
Feels Like Falling is a southern, summertime story that follows two strong characters, Gray and Diana, who are almost total opposites in personality and in their stages of life.
Gray heads to the North Carolina coast for the summer to try to find herself after the recent loss of her mother and separation from her husband. Meanwhile, Diana has broken up with her boyfriend, lost her job, and finds herself out on the streets.
Feels Like Fallingfollows both Gray and Diana over the course of their summer and tells the story of strong women, unexpected friendships, and how both life and love have a way of working out.
This is definitely a book you’re going to want to add to your summer reading list! I am really hoping that Kristy decides to make this book in to a series!
Thanks so much, Kristie! Feels Like Falling is available for preorder now and officially releases April 28, 2020, wherever books are sold!
To a stunning kitchen, McKendree captures each detail with a discerning eye. That’s why we think his work (like that of the designers he captures!) is always in good taste.

Good morning, chic readers! Today seemed like a very fitting day to feature a gorgeous home designed by LA Designer Luca Casa Design and photographed by the incredibly talented Christopher Lee Foto (Also in LA)… Because I’m en route to California right now! I’ll be sharing a stage with Mary Alice Monroe, Kristin Harmel, Kristina McMorris, Karen White and Colleen Oakley, just to name a few of my favorites that I can’t wait to see!
Basically, it’s going to be a big slumber party–partly aboard the Queen Mary–with books! Can you even think of a better party than that?
Speaking of parties, we would absolutely love to be hosting a dinner party in this stunning dining room. That fabric!
The clean lines and crisp color palette of this home drew us in absolutely instantly.
(Not to mention the exquisite photography that captured it so well.)
We think this too-good-to-be-true chef’s kitchen might just be our favorite space. (Although it’s always so hard to choose!)
Even the bathroom shares the modern, streamlined aesthetic of this home–
Right down to the artwork–and that super cool shower head!
A pretty orchid in a bold color adds a fresh and unexpected touch.
And an outdoor eating space blends seamlessly with the indoors to extend the entertaining area.
We would never want to leave this gorgeous patio! What’s your favorite part of this home?
THANKS SO MUCH FOR MAKING DESIGN CHIC A PART OF YOUR DAY. WE LOVE SEEING YOU HERE!
