10 Favorites from Collins Interiors

 

Good morning, chic readers! Oh, how we love starting the day off in style! These stunning spaces by Collins Interiors are sure to begin your week on a high note!

 

 

A pretty workspace for two. (Or, if this beautiful guy has a say in it, maybe three?)

 

 

The perfect mix of traditional and modern, this banquette is a gorgeous place to savor breakfast in style. 

 

 

There are few things we love more than a pair of cozy club chairs

 

 

Art anyone? There are playrooms, and then there are playrooms! Future Picassos right here!

 

 

This sweet chaise creates the perfect reading nook.

 

 

This just might be the vanity of our dreams! We can’t get enough pink

 

 

It has been uncharacteristically rainy and cold where we are these past few weeks. We don’t know about you, but we could use a little–or a lot!—of sunshine right now. This lovely porch is just the kind of place we’d like to while away a warm day. Which is your favorite Collins Interiors space?

I am over-the-moon about my first starred review from Publishers Weekly! Can’t wait for all of you to read Under the Southern Sky on April 20! It’s available for preorder now wherever books are sold. 

From PW: Harvey (Feels Like Falling) delivers a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss in this tearjerker…Harvey brings her characters to life, including Greer, whose heartbreaking journal entries reflect on scans of the embryos and imagine the family she and Parker would have. These passages are particularly wrenching, making the book’s happy ending all the more moving. Fans of women’s fiction will devour this. (Apr.)

In Good Taste: Hendricks Churchill House & Interiors

Hendricks Churchill office

We don’t know about you, but we love homes with history, with a sense of time and place and a style all their own. 

Hendricks Churchill entrance

Maybe that’s what first drew us to Hendricks Churchill House & Interiors.

These designers’ eye toward preserving the best of the old while incorporating the new is nothing short of fabulous. 

Hendricks Churchill kitchen

Beautiful wide-plank hardwoods make a statement in this kitchen and a stove with an antique feel adds to the charm.

Lower ceilings make this kitchen feel cozy, while pendant lights add a pop of color.

Talk about unique art! An old anchor and a coil of rope make for fabulous decor!

Hendricks Churchill hallway

Some architectural details simply make a house. These floors and those unique transoms and windows are the perfect backdrop for a showstopping design. 

Hendricks Churchill bathroom

We love the sense of history that Hendricks Churchill brings to its spaces–even in the bathroom. Antique light fixtures and an antique rug juxtapose with new fixtures for a custom look.

And a sunny porch in a classic color is perfect for the long, lazy summer days ahead.

Hendricks Churchill laundry room

A flower sink is one of our dream home items. Everyone needs a place to cut fresh flowers!

White trim is fine, but this fun aqua adds so much personality!

While a more classic color adds old world charm. Do you like a bit of traditional style in your decor? Or are you more modern?

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

House Tour: Summer Thornton Design Stunner

This post is going to get me in trouble. Big trouble. Because, while, at first glance, this looks like any gorgeous living room, this stunning space by Summer Thornton Design isn’t a home at all.

It’s a dental office!

And, you see, I was in charge of decorating my husband’s dental office. Honestly, I thought I did a pretty darn good job.

Well, I mean, I thought I did a good job until I saw this dental office, which, let’s face it, is the most insanely beautiful dental office of all time. Now I’m wondering if maybe I could have applied myself a little more.

Needless to say, it is giving me something to aspire to–though this might have to be my office space within the dental office. We can give hubby something a little more masculine. 

This stunning lounge is the perfect place for staff members to cozy up during a break. And it even has a stylish little nod to teeth up there!

The lounge is a great place to pick up a good book!

This takes the kids’ playroom to a whole new level! No torn up Highlights magazines here!

You might look forward to a root canal in this gorgeous exam room! 

Need to use the powder room? No problem! You’ll feel right at home in this incredible bathroom. Needless to say, I have some work to do! Thanks for the inspiration, Summer!

Advance Praise from D.A. Wolf from Daily Plate of Crazy

It is worth noting that Kristy Woodson Harvey is often described as a Southern voice, and indeed she is. But to leave it at that is to underestimate the power and nuance of her storytelling gift — her mastery of dialog to move plot forward, her insights into what makes women tick, and her wit. Rest assured that regardless of where you live or grew up, you will find yourself in Kristy’s writing. “Slightly South of Simple” will have you at turns teary, beaming, and nodding in recognition — as a daughter, a mother, a sister — cheering on her protagonists, Ansley and Caroline. “
