House Tour: Chango & Co

Chango & Co entry with console table and a pair of lamps

 

We are in the midst of a full-on, all-out, holiday decorating frenzy. 

  Chango & Co  

It is in direct contrast to the clean, streamlined, totally gorgeous aesthetic of Chango & Co

  Chango & Co  

(Although, we bet even these minimalistic spaces can get dolled up for the holidays!) 

  Chango & Co  

Industrial-chic yet still warm,

  Chango & Co hanging swings  

Modern and minimalistic to the core,

  Chango & Co kitchen with blonde wood and  pendant lights and white stools  

Or organized-yet-homey in the heart, 

  Chango & Co bedroom with canopy bed  

Chango & Co. creates spaces that are undeniably chic, incredibly cool and never ever overdone.

  Chango & Co nursery with pink and white wallpaper  

Pretty in pink when it matters,

  Chango & Co bathroom with polka dot wallpaper  

And polka-dotted in the best possible way.

Chango & Co.’s work is versatile enough for everyone in the family. We couldn’t pick a favorite space. What about you?

 

Happy Thanksgiving, friends. We are so thankful for you and hope you have an amazing day!

 

My entire Peachtree Bluff Series is a part of Amazon’s 3 for 2 promotion for a limited time–along with favorite titles of the year such as Where the Crawdads Sing, Little Fires Everywhere, Atomic Habits, Girl, Wash Your Face and Educated.

Creating a Holiday-Ready Guest Room with John Robshaw

Dasani Duvet cover sham and bedding John Robshaw
Dasati Duvet Set

 

Good morning, chic readers! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas already this year–and we couldn’t love it any more. I found out today that there is less time than usual between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I absolutely had to get on my holiday shopping stat. (Plus, all the music and movies and twinkle lights have begun and are getting to me!)

 

Dasati Duvet Set John Robshaw bedding
Hand Stitched White Coverlet

 

One of our favorite things is gathering all the family together for Thanksgiving and Christmas and, to that end, we are creating a guest-ready bedroom so our visitors can rest in style. 

 

Torana Indigo Bolster pillows John Robshaw

We are love, love, loving this gorgeous John Robshaw bedding that is nothing short of guest-perfect. (Okay, let’s be real: It’s us perfect, too, and we’ll be stealing it back stat!) The coverlet is soft to the touch and oh-so-cozy, the comforter inside this duvet is soft, fluffy and gorgeous, and the fabrics are absolutely to-die-for. 

 

 John Robshaw pillows
Pabala Indigo Decorative Pillow

 

As with everything in design, it’s the details that make these textiles not just beautiful but extraordinary. Hand block painting, hand block stitching and the finest down and feathers available set these linens apart and are one of the facets of John Robshaw’s vision for his spectacular brand.

We could barely resist climbing into this bed ourselves once we had made it.

But, well, we couldn’t bear to wrinkle the softest, most luxurious sheets. The detail is simple, elegant and so inviting. 

 

Cabatti Bedding

 

Now we feel like our guest room is ready to go for anyone who wants to join us for the holiday season!

But the great thing about John Robshaw’s Collection is that the colors, patterns, style and variety mean there is the perfect selection for every space. His degree in fine art from Pratt and expertise in block printing are evident in every beautiful item.

We are so partial to these stunning indigos.

And we love how pieces from John Robshaw ‘s collection can be mixed and matched to create a completely custom look.

They are never fussy, never overdone, but these linens are pure luxury all the way.

The only problem now is that your guests might want to stay a little too long… ‘Tis the season, right?

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Luscious textiles make the perfect gift!

Muddy boots are one of the signs of a day well spent. And muddy boots left by the door are a sure sign of more adventure to come.

AD100 Designer Julie Hillman knows a thing or two about adventure.

Combining form and function while keeping an eye toward a home’s historical context

is easier said than done.

But it’s a design idea that, in philosophy and practice,

  Sage Design open shelving in the kitchen with marble  

is what makes Sage Design ‘s work in such good taste.

  Sage Design kitchen with open shelving  and glass cabinets  

Kitchen storage is something we can never get enough of. Islands like this with plenty of space for cookbooks are always our favorites.

Open shelving adds that instant homey, cottage feel

even in the grandest of homes.

Sage Design loves using open shelving. They’re so elegant and perfect for showcasing simple essentials.

More storage where it matters most.
