We hope you are all having a wonderful, relaxing day with family. We are remembering all the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom and all those who continue to fight to keep this country great. We are so grateful for the sacrifices that our troops and their families make every, single day of the year! Take a peek at a few favorite rooms and (maybe a book cover) in a favorite color combination!

House Tour: Lake Martin Memorial Day Getaway

Bill Ingram Architect house with singles stone and dormers

 

Could you use a Memorial Day getaway? We know we could! If the state of the world has you staying home this weekend: You’re Invited! Tour this stunning Lake Martin Home designed by Bill Ingram Architect with us today!

 

Bill Ingram Architect curb appeal

 

We all know what matters most when it comes to real estate: location, location, location. 

 

Bill Ingram Architect Lake Martin house

 

And this Lake Martin beauty has the perfect location all wrapped up. (I mean, just look at that view!)

 

Bill Ingram Architect Lake Martin house with stone in entry and green door

 

But, lucky for us, the location is just the beginning! Wide plank floors… Stone accents… That free-standing staircase…

The magic is in the details, and the details here are too good to be true!

In case you missed it the first time… That staircase!! We’re full-on obsessed!

This lovely stoop beckons visitors inside, and the planter and bench are in perfect keeping with the tone of this spectacular home with the right amount of cabin feel.

Stone accents indoors and out create a perfect flow…

And, again with the view!! Make this as big as it will go on your screen, grab your coffee and a good book (My new Feels Like Falling if you haven’t read it yet, pretty please!) and savor for as long as you want.

There’s nothing we love more than a kitchen we can admire–but don’t have to cook in…

Or a huge glass shower we can study but never have to clean! We don’t know about you, but just touring this charming vacation spot has left us feeling refreshed and invigorated. And the best part? You can visit again any time you like! 

 

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

Need a Memorial Day Read? Check out Nature.Books.And.Coffee’s Review of my Instant USA Today Bestseller, Feels Like Falling:

“Feels Like Falling” by Kristy Woodson Harvey @kristywharvey was a definite 5⭐!!… This story has a dual POV, alternating between Gray and Diana. Gray just lost her mother to cancer!  She is the CEO of her company and recently split from her husband who cheated on her. She goes to spend the summer at the North Carolina shore. Diana who loses her job at the pharmacy has just broke up with her boyfriend, moved out of their shared apartment and planning to just live in her car! Just so happens, Gray has a spare guest house and offers Diana to stay there. These 2 , very different women truly Bond and help each other through the hard times in their life. They learn so much about themselves, and what really matters in life! I loved both characters!! This story was sweet, dealing with love, loss, romance, motherhood, and life!! This truly was a perfect beach read. A very endearing, positive read.
