House Tour: Greensboro Charming Oasis

Happy Wednesday, chic friends! We love Wednesdays for a lot of reasons, one of them being that we get to tour a gorgeous home. The only thing better than a house tour is a house tour of a home of a someone we know! I recently had the pleasure of writing an article about my fabulous cousin Catherine Adcox and her beautiful family that appeared in O’Henry Magazine’s Annual Home & Garden Issue. 

Catherine and her husband John are the duo behind Sourcc Design, a rapidly expanding business that helps those who want to decorate their own homes source designer furniture and accessories at below-retail prices, while providing design boards and scaled models free of charge. It’s a totally brilliant concept that has already spread to thirteen cities. 

Head over to O.Henry for more incredible photos and the full story–after you finish looking here, of course!

Here’s a quick sneak peek to whet your appetite:

 

The house that Catherine and John Adcox share in Irving Park looks like something out of a storybook. With a white brick exterior, pale blue-gray shutters, a manicured garden and an idyllic picket fence, it is, in a word, charming. It’s the kind of place that you know people are lined up for, just waiting for it to go on the market.

Only, the Adcoxes weren’t among those waiting. They’d already contracted to buy the house next door, planning to undertake a complete renovation once their house down the street sold.

And yet, when the home belonging to Bradshaw Orrell and Douglas Freeman, both celebrated members of the interior design and art worlds, came up for sale, they did the most dangerous thing two people who are not intending to buy a house can do: They decided to “just look.”

 I probably don’t need to tell you what happened next. John says, “We knew it was perfect as soon as we walked inside.”

Did I mention that their beautiful home made the cover?

I know. But it’s easy to see why, right?

Aren’t they the cutest?! Check out the rest of the story at O.Henry and visit Catherine and John at Sourcc!

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love having you here!

In Good Taste: Beau Clowney Architects

When it comes to standing out, it’s the little things in a home that can make the biggest impact.

And creating memorable details is what Beau Clowney Architects do so incredibly well.

Painted beams and a water blue backsplash add beachy beauty to this lovely space.

And natural elements from the sea combine with traditional blues for a unique feel that is casual and a little dressy all at once.

A pretty banquette is even more beautiful in blue and white, while statement lighting unifies the space.

For added privacy for kids and adults alike, it’s hard to beat these adorable drapes on the built-in bunks. Rope handles finish off the look in style!

A beautiful fireplace with a stunning piece of art is always a favorite focal point for us. And the symmetry in this room is absolutely stunning.

We love a house that’s designed to take advantage of every square inch of view–and shiplap ceilings lend a coastal feel.

Porches and patios are hard to beat when it comes to taking advantage of living in gorgeous places. These shutters are a chic and convenient way to close it up when it’s time to go home. 

Whether on the front, back or side, these architects really know how to make an entrance .

This classic style is so well done. We love the black and white with touches of copper. 

Speaking of welcoming, who wouldn’t want to be a guest at this gorgeous home? We know we would! 

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love seeing you. For more of these stunning designs follow Beau Clowney on Instagram!

House Tour: Euclid Traditional Beauty

entrance

Hi, chic readers! We spent the day doing a hygge photo shoot for a magazine, surrounded by furry throws, hide rugs, lit candles, and of course, a roaring fire–with the air conditioner cranked down the 65. While we love the hygge trend, it felt funny to be decorating for winter in the dog days of August! But it’s always fun to look toward the season ahead. 

This fabulous Euclid Traditional by the uber-talented Amy Berry Design hits all the high notes of summer. You’ll see what we mean, especially when you get to the porch!

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

While it was fun to get a glimpse of winter, we were glad to come back to our summer digs, with the light, fun patterns, the natural fibers, the fresh flowers…

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

And, we have to say, looking at these gorgeous rooms, this stunning space would look amazing in any season. 

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

Barry is so wonderful at mixing the old and the new, at combining an antique rug with new upholstery, an antique piece of furniture with fresh accessories, making the entire thing come off as updated but with a sense of history.

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

If we had to choose one word to describe her interiors, we think it would be inviting. 

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

This is the kind of home where, after you walk through the door, you want to stay awhile.

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

Speaking of seasonal decor, this sunny space makes it feel like summer even what lies beyond the door is less than toasty!

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

We adore the incredibly tailored look of this bedroom. It’s crisp, neat and finished–with just the right amount of monogram!

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

Library lamps are one of our favorite trendy items that we think everyone should have at least a couple of. Cozy reading nooks are always welcome–especially as we prepare to transition to cooler weather.

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

You think the inside is good? Just wait until you see the outside! 

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

Now this is a patio.

Amy Berry Design Euclid Traditional Beauty

You know we love outdoor spaces that are an extension of the indoors, and this porch fits that bill perfectly. Every detail is gorgeous!

 

Chic chaises top our outdoor wishlist. This Carolina blue with white piping is so summery and equally as elegant. We’d love lounging here!

Thanks so much for touring this gorgeous home with us. We love it when you stop by!

What People are Saying About Slightly South of Simple:

“My prediction is that writers come and writers go, but Kristy Woodson Harvey is here to stay. The warmth, wit, and wisdom of this novel pave her way into the exclusive sisterhood of southern writers.” (—The Huffington Post)
