House Tour: Jute Interiors

Jute Interiors curb appeal

 

It happens every, single year, without fail. Fall comes, the temperature drops, and we start feeling like we need a farm. Preferably with a bonfire.

 

Jute Interiors entry with pendant lights

 

Nothing permanent. Just a small getaway, perfectly appointed.

This home from Jute Interiors is basically out of our imagination, that fall, farm, weekend getaway come to life. 

 

Jute Interiors bench

 

This is the kind of place where not a single detail is overlooked, from the walls to the furniture to everything in between. 

 

Jute Interiors dining room with beams

 

It is also the kind of place where things are simple. And an open floor plan means that living leads to…

Dining, preferably for friends and family,

At the ideal rustic table where the outside comes in, the simple becomes impossibly chic and the kind of place is set where we would want to be guests.

Speaking of places we want to become guests… A lovely pool with equally gorgeous loungers and that farm we’re craving!

A stunning pavilion with plenty of eating and entertaining space.

And that bonfire that we absolutely must have when it comes to fall! Do you love this Jute Interiors home as much as we do?

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

10 Patios for Relaxing in Style this Summer

It’s funny how things change as you get older.

While I still love to celebrate my birthday for, well, the entire month, like any normal person, with dinners and wine with friends and trips and presents and too much cake, after a fun, fun, fun summer of lots of events and tons of guests and just the right amount of sun and salt and sand (because there’s never enough, is there?) I think what I’d like most for my birthday is to sit on my front porch.

It’s a pretty boring and simple request, but if there’s any time to reflect on your front porch, a birthday is the time to do it.

I insisted the cake on Friday and present opening on Saturday also take place outside because even though it’s hard for presents to get better, they actually are even better with a sunset in the background and a perfect summer breeze.

What Calypso in the Country is saying about my latest novel, The Secret to Southern Charm:

Be ready to laugh, cry and lose some sleep because you won’t be able to put this one down!  The Secret to Southern Charm is a beautifully written story full of love, heartbreak, suspense and of course, that sweet southern charm!  Interior design enthusiasts will also love picturing the lovely decor of the homes which provide the calming background for the complicated lives of the characters.

And I got to meet my sweet friend Shelley at Root Home Decor in Manasquan, NJ on my The Secret to Southern Charm tour. She is as fabulous as her blog and I could have talked to her all night. It was so fun! You can check out her post about it! Thank you so much, Shelley!

House Tour: Jack’s Peachtree Bluff Beach House

Good morning, chic readers! With the first week of The Secret to Southern Charm tour behind us, we are just taking a moment to thank you so much for all your support–and celebrate!

If you’ve read any of the Peachtree Bluff series then you know that Ansley, one of my protagonists, is an interior designer. 

And she has dreamed of decorating the house next door to her grandmother’s–hers now–since she was a teenager. 

 

Conveniently, her first love, the man who has swept back into Peachtree Bluff and complicated her life inexplicably, has bought the house next door and, as the story unfolds, Ansley gets to design this house, that she has dreamed of for so long. Here’s a little peek at what she says:

I was sitting at the dining room table, sipping my first cup of coffee of the morning and sketching a room—something I hadn’t done in quite some time. 

Over the past several years, I had created mood boards for my clients so they could see exactly what furniture, fixtures, and fabric I was contemplating for their rooms. 

But I knew already that Jack would let me have free rein, and sketching the rooms I was designing was how I best dreamed them. 

I liked to think I was drawing them into life.

This gorgeous home from Connecticut Cottages and Gardens is very similar to how we picture the complete redesign of Jack’s house that Ansley undertakes, classic but refined, elegant and understated and just right for a grown bachelor, even though, later, Ansley admits…

I gazed up at the stunning canopy bed with the ethereal white curtains I had copied from Phoebe Howard. The walls were a light gray, on the lavender side so they felt warm, not steely. It probably wasn’t a color I would have chosen for Jack the bachelor. It was a color I had chosen for me, a color I had chosen for our life together. As I lay there, feeling totally at peace, I finally admitted that, all this time, I had been decorating this house for me.

Wishing you a wonderful day!
