In Good Taste: Minnie Peters

`Minnie Peters design kitchen with beams and ladder  

There are certain things that always make us think of fall: Wood stacked in the fireplace

  Minnie Peters kitchen with beams and soapstone counters and wood island  

Beautiful, rustic beams

  Minnie Peters design kitchen with soapstone countertops  

An old-timey stove…

  Minnie Peters entry with wood beams  

And raw wood accents–especially when they’re paired with fall leaves of every color. 

  Minnie Peters glass front sliding cabinet in kitchen  

Minnie Peters’ great taste, filled with lovely European influences, has us feeling fall today!

  Minnie Peters dining room with round table  

A soothing color palette,

  Minnie Peters louvered closet door  

Antique accents (and wellies by the door!), 

   laundry room  

And the most charming architectural accents, 

   butler's pantry with white china  

Add up to a chicly lovely home that looks warm, cozy and lived in in the best possible way. 

  Minnie Peters dining room with glass front cabinet  

A few antique accents add charm in droves,

  Minnie Peters antique desk secretary  

And create eye-catching vignettes that are impossible to look away from.

  Minnie Peters bathroom with freestanding tub and chandelier over tub  

This tub is exactly the kind of place we’d like to soak with a cup of apple tea all fall long… What about you?

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

In Good Taste: An Architectural Digest AD100 Designer

Julie Hillman Design ad100 entry

 

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. 

 

Julie Hillman Design ad100 entry foyer with abstract art and round table  

 

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

 

Julie Hillman Design ad100 living room with abstract art and convex mirrors      

 

One peek at her peerless interiors and it is very, very clear that she isn’t afraid to take a risk. 

 

Julie Hillman Design office ad100    

 

Even in a neutral office, unexpected accessories and chic, out-of-the-ordinary lighting steal the show. 

 

Julie Hillman Design kitchen with long wood farmhouse table ad100      

 

The absolute perfect mix of old and new, this cozy kitchen is the kind of place we’d want to curl up all fall and winter long. 

 

Julie Hillman Design black kitchen ad100  

 

And this patterned, bright tile makes an eat-in kitchen feel like an escape. 

 

Julie Hillman Design bathroom ad100  

 

Who wouldn’t want to take a nice soak (with a good book) in this relaxing but interesting bathroom?

 

Julie Hillman Design bunkbed room with stripe rug ad100  

 

Everything about this bunk room is fun. We love the juxtaposition of a traditional cabin feel with a bold color palette.

From a retreat for a growing boy,

 

Julie Hillman Design girl's pink bedroom ad100  

 

To a suite fit for a princess (and her puppy!),

To outdoor spaces that awe,

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: Sage Design

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.

  Sage Design  kitchen with open shelving  

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.

  Sage Design bathroom with freestanding tub  

This tub has me longing for my home and relaxing soaks.

Sage Design is a beautiful way to start (or end) the day!
We hope, wherever you are, you’re day is starting just as well!

House Tour: Designed by Kara Hebert Interiors

Kara Hebert Interiors entry  

 

Happy Wednesday, friends! Hasn’t this week just flown by? It has for us, anyway. 

 

Kara Hebert Interiors living room  

 

We are so excited because after one year, one week and six days (but, again, who’s counting?) of being out of the Beaufort house, we are doing photo shoots for our fab friends at Serena & Lily there today! 

 

Kara Hebert Interiors kitchen  

 

So, no, we’re not move-in ready or anything, but after a lot of blood, sweat and tears (and painters up on ladders with hair dryers trying to get trim finished!) we have not one but TWO rooms that are ready (ish) for their close-ups! Make sure you pop back by on Friday to check out the kitchen. We’ll also be showing off the third floor, which is mostly playroom but also a little bit family space, next week!

 

Kara Hebert Interiors kitchen with hanging pendants over island

 

But, today, we’re super thrilled to be touring someone else’s house! This light, bright, beautiful home by Kara Hebert Interiors, gorgeously captured by Brantley Photography, has us feeling calm, relaxed and super inspired. 

 

Kara Hebert Interiors dining room

 

We love every little bit, but we have to say that this stunning piece by EMYO art might be our favorite focal point. We’re having serious art envy!

 

bedroom in blue and white  

 

Interest on the ceiling, 

 

bathroom with double cabinets  

 

The perfect mix of laid-back and luxe,

 

bedroom with covered headboard

 

A pop of color,

 

  Kara Hebert Interiors bathroom with rope mirror  

 

And some kitsch-free, nautical-inspired flavor,

 

Kara Hebert Interiors laundry room with cane chandelier  

 

Combine to create a home that is truly a showstopper

 

 

 

Artichoke lamps from Stray Dog are the icing on the cake! What is your favorite element of this lovely home?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

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. 

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her evangelical husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a busted Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn, but when the one that got away comes back, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

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: Hendricks Churchill Architecture & Design

We don’t know about you, but we love homes with history, with a sense of time and place and a style all their own.  Maybe that’s what first drew us to Hendricks Churchill House & Interiors. These designers’ eye toward preserving the best of the old while incorporating the new is nothing short of fabulous. Take a look and we think you’ll agree!

Powder rooms are sort of like babies: It’s amazing how something so small can have so much personality. Stunning wallpapers, statement lighting, bold colors and even wood paneling set these nooks apart and make them oh-so-chic.
