In Good Taste: Steele Street Studios

Good morning, chic readers! We love, love Tuesdays, especially when we have a heaping helping of good taste to share with you.

Today you’re in for a treat with the fabulously good taste of Steele Street Studios.

We love the simple elegance of this fabulous kitchen.

Out of this world brass hardware is the perfect finishing detail to take it over the top. 

Sleek pendant lighting and bar stools combined with industrial chic stainless lend this kitchen a modern look.

If you’re going to have to work at home sometimes, why not make it amazing? Plenty of built in bookcases provide chic storage. 

Crisp yet cozy, this pretty bedroom hits all the high notes of style. 

We love, love, love a chalkboard wall, especially in a playroom. It’s an inexpensive fix for larger walls that breeds creativity. 

We grown-ups love our reading nooks. Shouldn’t our little ones get their own too? This one would make even the most reluctant reader want to spend an afternoon in a fictional world!

Playroom art doesn’t have to be expensive. Little ones love seeing their own masterpieces hanging. 

One of the most important elements in any playroom is the floor space. And, of course, cute places to put everything away when the play is finished!

This gender-neutral nursery is adorably sweet.

Any little one would be lucky to call this nursery home! From the grown-ups to the kids, Steele Street Studios makes every space totally extraordinary. Which is your favorite?

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

In Good Taste: Hernandez Greene Interior Design

Hernandez Greene entrance

If you’re like us, you believe that good taste never means just one thing. It can apply to a range of styles, a mix of materials and all sorts of different feels. Hernandez Greene Interior Design creates a variety of worlds for its clients, each one encapsulating a style–and a version of good taste–that reflects the family that lives within. We hope you enjoy these stunning rooms as much as we did!

What Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“[I]f I recommend one book to you this year (so far), let it be Slightly South of Simple for your first beach read. The darling and charming Kristy Woodson Harvey’s latest novel is the definition of a summer novel. I loved it almost as I love her.”–Jessica, Simply Bedazzled
