House Tour: Penthouse in Buckhead

We don’t like to play favorites, but, well, we’re only human.

And every single time, without fail, that we discover a new Suzanne Kasler project, it’s love at first sight.

(She’s also really nice, so that doesn’t hurt her standing in our hearts!)

A penthouse is kind of the dream, right?

Being on the top of the world with the most beautiful view

It isn’t ever easy finding the right spot–and finding the best person to bring your vision to life can be a challenge in and of itself. But, when this Atlanta couple found their dream Pied-à-Terre in Buckhead, they already knew their dream designer since Kasler had designed their Sea Island home.

And create a dream apartment, she did.

A bright, airy color palette and open-but-not-too-open floor plan combine to create a stunning pied-à-terre that feels like home.

Each beautiful detail combines seamlessly to create a modern space perfect for entertaining or simply getting away.

We think we saved the best for last… Isn’t this bathroom dreamy? What is your favorite space?

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey Beach house book
 

I am so excited that my new novel Feels Like Falling releases on April 28!

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.

In Good Taste: Winter McDermott Design

Winter McDermott Design via Dering Hall

Good morning, chic readers! After almost a week in Manhattan, surrounded by Christmas windows and the Rockettes and the tree at Rockefeller Center and letters from Santa, we are very much in the Christmas spirit! Are you? 

That said, in the midst of the “more is more” of the holiday season, sometimes it’s nice to take a breather. 

We may be surrounded by trees and lights and garland and boxes and bows, but the good taste of Winter McDermott is nothing if not a study in beautiful simplicity. 

Perfectly pared and clean, clean, clean, it’s exactly the kind of design that can clear a cluttered mind. 

The beautiful work of Maureen McDermott is all about bringing modern design to the Hamptons

(Plus, what could be better this time of year then showcasing a design firm called Winter?) 

After studying under Vincente Wolf–and designing projects including 15 Union Square West, a dramatic 12-story condominium in the historic Tiffany & Co. building–modern, unique design is something she knows a thing or two about. 

From family rooms that delight the senses, 

To nooks that wow, 

Guest rooms that company will never want to leave, 

To a place for partying outdoors all year round, 

Indoors and out, the work of Winter McDermott is always in good taste!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by!

Mark your calendars for this Thursday, December 6 at 12 pm! Southern Living will be exclusively revealing the cover of my forthcoming novel, THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE, which releases May 7, 2019 but is available for preorder now. (And, in case you miss it, we’ll give you a repeat right here on Friday!)

 

Beautiful Coffee Table Books to Brighten Your Fall

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had a great weekend and are reenergized for the week ahead. If not, it might be time to treat yourself to a little something special… Like one of these gorgeous coffee table books!

If you want to hold onto the green of summer as the seasons change, The Gardens of Bunny Mellon, featuring this gorgeous trompe l’oeil garden greenhouse among many, many other fabulous things, is a great place to start. 

If your weather is less than sunny and bright, Bunny Mellon’s garden can change all that!

If you’re looking to expand your design horizons and take a peek inside some of American’s most beautiful living rooms (and kitchens… and dining rooms…) look no further than American Originals by William Abranowicz!

Martha Stewart’s Bedford kitchen, as photographed by Abranowicz, was one of our favorite spots. All that gleaming copper!

And Ellen DeGeneres and Portia di Rossi’s living room is a study in staid yet comfortable modernity. 

Whether you’re a design junkie or just looking for a little more information on how to tell you Elsie de Wolfes from your Jean-Louis Denotes, Inspired Design by Jennifer Boles needs to be in your library. (The cover alone is too good to pass up!)

With wonderful tips and information on each designer and a sample of his or her work–like designer Stephen Sills’ living room–there’s a new surprise on every page!

Don’t miss Kelly Wearstler’s rendition of the French Regency canopy chair. It’s a highlight for sure!

We hope one (or all!) of these gorgeous new books is gracing your bookshelves–or your coffee table–very soon. 

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

In Good Taste: Hám Interior Design

Hám Interior Design entry

A Carolina blue door and a black lab? There’s really no better entrance if you ask us. (Although, in Henley-on-Thames, where this gorgeous door resides, we’re pretty sure it isn’t called Carolina blue.) Hám Interior Design firm, our big time design love this week, combines classic sensibilities with stunning architecture for spaces with purpose, with style and, most important of all, with that certain undefinable something that makes a house feel like a home. Leave your wellies by the door, brew a cup of hot tea and take a peek at these cozy, livable houses that are so unforgettably chic you’ll undoubtably find yourself daydreaming about a few little changes for you own home. Enjoy!
