House Tour: Spring Break in Palm Beach


Another day, another Spring Break trip we aren’t on… But super talented architect Mark Finlay is solving that for us!! 



Nothing–and we do mean nothing–says “Spring Break” quite like yellow-and-white stripes by a pool. It’s quintessential Spring Break chic and we are here for it!!



See? Isn’t it the best?



We have to say, though, we’d be pretty happy to spend Spring Break inside this gorgeous Palm Beach home too.



Cooking in this chic, built-in kitchen



Dining with our family in style,



Crossing the hall after dinner…



For an aperitif in the library



And, of course, curling up in bed after a long day shopping. Or on the beach. Either way. It’s your Spring Break. You choose!



But we all know that Spring Break is better when we share it with friends, 



Which is what makes this pair of twin bedrooms so incredibly appropriate. We’re pretty sure this house is Palm Beach perfection. And we’re so happy we got to visit it with you today!

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


In other news… Feels Like Falling releases in three, short weeks! If you haven’t preordered, please be aware that shipping times might be slightly delayed, so preordering now gives you a great shot of getting your copy on pub day, April 28!!


Also, my author friends, Mary Kay Andrews, Mary Alice Monroe, Patti Callahan Henry and Kristin Harmel and I are joining forces to bring you Friends and Fiction! We’ll be airing live on Mary Kay Andrews’ Facebook page next Wednesday, April 15 at 7 pm. We’ll be broadcasting every Wednesday from now until… Well, let’s just say, a while! Come join us. We’re going to have a blast!
