In Good Taste: Christina Cole & Co

Christina Cole & Co library Christina Cole & Co  

When it starts with books, we know it’s going to be good.

When a library ladder enters the mix, we’re pretty much sold.

But, honestly, the more we study the gorgeous good taste of Christina Cole & Co., the more we love it!

Old world details come into new focus with the addition of modern pieces.

And the juxtaposition is startlingly cool, a testament to the ways that homes, pieces, places and even we evolve over time.

Simple, clean lines allow the beauty of what was to shine,

And become open doors to new possibilities for the future.

Well-placed and thoughtfully designed accessories create a feeling of completeness with zero overwhelm,

And playing with patterns has never looked quite so chic.

Favorites like steel doors, black and white and marble combine to make a standout bath,

And extraordinary fixtures stand all on their own. We love mixing old and new, creating a totally unique look. And, when Christina Cole & Co does it, it’s style personified. Do you like the juxtaposition?

My next novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING, releases April 28, 2020! I can’t wait to share this tale of Gray and Diana, their unlikely friendship, their summer loves and their chance at happily ever after, the sequel, with all of you. It’s never too early to preorder from your favorite local bookstore or online retailer!

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.

House Tour: Andrew Skurman Architects

Andrew Skurman Architects house

Good morning, chic friends! Our friends at Andrew Skurman Architects have a treat for us today! A beautiful city residence that is perfection from the outside in.


Andrew Skurman Architects exterior

There is nothing like a first impression, and this one is totally on point and sets the tone for whats to come. The black front door juxtaposes perfectly with the beautiful tan of the exterior. And the trimmed boxwoods are the ideal accessory.

Andrew Skurman Architects abstract-art

Modern art makes a stunning statement in a simple entrance hall. 

Andrew Skurman Architects glass

We don’t love anything quite as much as a light-filled hallway. This glass ceiling accomplishes that in high style!

Andrew Skurman Architects abstract art

A black and white vignette is always on trend! 

Andrew Skurman Architects living room

There’s statement lighting…

Andrew Skurman Architects kitchen

And then there’s statement lighting! We think it’s safe to say that this fabulous home is full of it!

Andrew Skurman Architects kitchen

We love the clean, cool look of stainless in a kitchen, and this cabinetry takes the look over the top!

Andrew Skurman Architects kitchen

A beautiful bar is perfect for entertaining guests. We simply adore the copper sink! 

Andrew Skurman Architects bathroom

We can’t decide which element of this gorgeous bath is our favorite! But the architectural details in here definitely top the list. Those windows are incredible!

Andrew Skurman Architects staircase

A perfect, elegant spiral. 

Andrew Skurman Architects dining

Dining al fresco has never been so chic! 

Andrew Skurman Architects porch

Comfy furniture with a fire table keeps outdoor entertaining alive all year round. Do you love outdoor entertaining in the fall? Or would you rather curl up by an indoor fire? 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

House Tour: 1953 LA Abode

It’s a little dreary and gray around here today, so we’re feeling like taking a trip to LA, where it’s sunny and bright! Fashion stylist Jessica de Ruiter and her husband, artist-designer Jed Lind, are too kind to welcome us into their fabulous modern LA home via One Kings Lane.

This chic interior is modern living at its best. 

Unconventional windows offer plenty of light to make the indoors feel sunny and bright.

A sleek and minimalist kitchen incorporates luxe details to lend a calming yet stylish atmosphere.

Open shelving displays daily necessities right at arm’s length. Earthy and simple dishware like this always looks organized and is in perfect keeping with the tone of the house.

Gallery walls are always a favorite touch of ours. But who says they have to be symmetrical? We adore gallery walls like this one that are full of special trinkets with meaning.

A gorgeous office is always great. A gorgeous office with a view is even better! 

Comfortable and earthy, this bedroom blends seamlessly with the outdoors.

The blend of textures in this fabulous bathroom adds so much interest in dimension.

A little girl’s bedroom doesn’t have to be pink and full of princesses. This one offers tons of space for an imagination to grow.

Speaking of imagination, this play area is perfect!

Books, art and costumes… What else could a child possibly need? We adore this precious playroom

From top to bottom, kids’ spaces to adults’, this modern LA home is nothing short of totally chic. What do you think? Are you a fan of modern living?

In Good Taste:Park and Oak Design

Even their name conjures good feelings. Park and Oak Design. It sounds like a firm that brings the outdoors in. That creates simple yet beautiful design schemes that feel totally livable.

It’s kind of like judging a book by its cover. You’re really not supposed to but, sometimes, the cover does give you a really accurate glimpse into what the book is about.

In this case, we judged a firm by its name. And like that book cover, it did give us a pretty accurate glimpse into what was to come.

If we had to pick one word to describe Oak and Park Design, we think we’d choose… airy. (It’s hard to choose one word, especially when you’re used to getting 85,000 to describe things.)

There’s a minimalistic air about this firm’s work that we find incredibly appealing and totally refreshing.

A modern streak runs through all of these designs that pairs well with traditional touches.

And you know how we love our subway tile!

We love how simple this kitchen is. You can never go wrong with black, white and a touch of natural fiber.

It took us a while to warm up to the idea, but we are now big fans of mixing metals. This kitchen is case and point!

These pendants are perfection.

Speaking of pendants, this is one of our favorites. It’s even more stunning in real life!

Saarinen tables are always a favorite. Sleek, modern and totally functional, they’re a great pick for a breakfast room, especially one that isn’t huge.

The right combination of high and low, rustic and modern, this gorgeous bathroom is the perfect mix of favorite elements blended together in just the right way.

A great wallpaper can totally make a bathroom. We love the vintage feel of this marble sink. The simplicity of these fixtures is a perfect complement to the fun wallpaper. All in all, we think you’ll agree that the work of Park and Oak is in good taste. Which is your favorite room?

We hope you’re having a great day and staying warm!
