In Good Taste: Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Good morning, chic readers! We hope your Tuesday is off to a terrific start. If not, all of that is about to change! 

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

Cynthia Hayes and Pamela Manchester of Cynthia Hayes Interior Design have created a bevy of eye candy to brighten even the dullest Tuesday!

Blonde wood, natural fibers, lots of light, and fabulous lighting to boot…

Cynthia Hayes Interior Design

These spaces utilize neutrals–complemented with plenty of texture–to create an oasis-like feeling.

These designs are, to us, simplicity at its finest, spaces that complement the outdoors and focus on the natural beauty all around.

Pops of color enliven the entire space and natural elements prove that accessorizing can be easy!

Even the Cynthia Hayes Interiors laundry rooms are in good taste. Baskets are our absolute favorite way to keep organized. Do you use them?

We love wood on the floors…

But wood on the walls is a fun alternative and achieves the same feel, especially in bathrooms where tile floors are super easy to keep clean and germ free–a real concern during flu season!

Pretty patterns in light colors add so much interest to walls. We love the touches of blue.

Slanted ceilings can be so charming, as this twin bedroom proves. We love the molding and extra touches here. Looks like the perfect place for a sleepover to us!

No matter how gorgeous the inside, you know the outdoor spaces are always our favorites. You can’t get more classic than teak chairs with white cushions. This looks like the perfect spot for whiling away a summer day. It will be here before we know it!

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love seeing you here–and hope you are recovering from the post-Super Bowl exhaustion!

In Good Taste: Erin Paige Pitts

We always start January full of intentions for how incredibly clean and neat and organized we’re going to keep our houses. And it always starts out great. 

But, like a six-times-a-week gym habit, sometimes the constant cleaning up after everyone just leaves us tired. 

And you just want to leave your shoes on the floor and not hang up your pants and leave dishes “soaking” in the sink. (Well, I do. Mom would never ever do any of the above things, so she doesn’t have to make house-related resolutions!)

If your enthusiasm is waning a bit as we round the February corner, don’t worry! 

These light, bright, clutter-free and perfectly organized homes from Erin Paige Pitts are drool-worthy enough to make you want to hop right back on those resolutions. 

Because we spend so much time designing them, planning and plotting them, making sure they are perfect… 

It would be a shame to sully that gorgeous marble island with that stack of mail that you didn’t quite have time to get to this afternoon. (At least, that’s what I keep reminding myself!)

Clutter-free spaces are the most calming, after all, so if one of your resolutions was to chill out, then making up your bed in the morning as soon as you get out of it may be a good start. 

And Peter Walsh’s Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight, says that you can lose ten pounds in six weeks by cleaning up. So skip the elliptical today, organize your shoe closet and take a bath. Killing lots of resolution birds with one stone!

 

We’ve always said that living your best life begins at home…

And the good taste of Erin Paige Pitts, certainly makes that easier than ever! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, chic readers. We always love seeing you here!

House Tour: English Cottage

Krista Nye Schwartz and Tami Ramsay, the co-owners and principal interior designers behind Cloth & Kind, have been inspired since their childhoods by international travel and the natural world.

One glance at their fantastic interiors, like this reimagined English Cottage, and it is clear that integrating treasured and well-loved relics into their designs is a priority for this dynamic duo.

Cloth and Kind living room

Neutral basics combine with luscious pops of color and pattern to create a space that is at once unique and easy to change as the mood–or trip–strikes!

Cloth and Kind dining room

Modern chairs and light fixture combine with a classic farmhouse table and an assortment of artistic pillows for a banquette that is as unique as the family that spends its meals there.

Open shelving gives a feeling of openness, and this marble island is too luxe for words!
