From an island accent to an entire room, there’s no wrong way to use soapstone! Check out ten of our favorite kitchens with this beautiful, versatile material.

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.
She also has three children (3, 2 and 1) and owns not one but five stores.
I know what you’re thinking: Yes, you are an underachiever, and so am I.
And does she even have time to use that bathtub? And, if so, how?
All we know is that Holly Williams has super powers, one of them being that she hits this perfect note of style plus comfort plus homeyness plus chic Southern charm.
And that’s a combination that, no matter your generation, is positively timeless.
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! We always love seeing you here!

Good morning, chic readers! We hope your Thursday is off to a great start! We’re pondering our favorite cabinet styles today. Few decisions in a kitchen are as major, as expensive or have as big of an impact, so it’s one of those ones that is important to get right!
If you’re looking for something simply elegant without too much fuss for your kitchen cabinet remodel, flat paneled cabinets are a perfect choice.
One of our favorite kitchen styles is a combination of glass-front cabinets and closed cabinets. Glass front cabinets are perfect for display, but it’s nice to have a few to hide messier items behind as well!
Sometimes our favorite cabinets are… no cabinets at all! We love open shelving as a chic and inexpensive alternative to upper cabinets. So cute!
You know we love white kitchens, so, to us, you can never go wrong with white cabinets.
Can’t make up your mind? We totally understand! Why not mix and match? It’s the best of both worlds and gives any kitchen a totally custom feel.
If you were redoing your kitchen. what cabinet style would you choose?
