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. 

 

jute Interiors entry with wood bench and steel doors

 

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,

 

dinner arty

 

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. 

 

porch and patio

 

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

 

covered porch

 

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!

House Tour: Forever Home in Buckhead

forever house entrance hall

Forever home. It’s a tall order, a big request and a giant leap. 

forever house living room

Because creating a house where you want to stay for the foreseeable future can be hard enough. 

forever house family room

Taking that giant leap and creating a home where we want to stay forever is a big, huge deal.

But that’s exactly what Liza Bryan and architect Ryan Duffey did for these Buckhead homeowners. 

forever house dining room

And the results are,

 as you can see for yourself, perfection, the creation of a place that is, without a doubt, worthy of the title “forever home.”

From living, dining and gathering spaces perfect for family, friends or a quiet night at home,

To bedrooms that are cozy, warm and filled with a sense of history, yet updated and refreshed,

Every piece of this fabulous renovation was perfectly planned.

What People are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys. Kristy Woodson Harvey creates four women who are at once completely different yet utterly the same–and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Bestselling author Cassandra King

In Good Taste: Marshall Watson Interiors

 Pinterest-worthy. That’s what we’d say about Marshall Watson Interior Design

With all the choices of things to pin out there these days, that’s a pretty high compliment.

But these gorgeous rooms and outdoor spaces by these user-talented designers are ones we want to remember, take inspiration from and come back to again and again.

If we weren’t already having Spring fever (which we are, big time…) then this porch would certainly inspire it. From the lush landscape to the beautiful touches, every element is utter perfection.

These banana leaf chairs are some of our favorites! In fact, we have them in the Beaufort playroom!

Dining al fresco has never looked so good. Sunflowers add a cheerful burst of color.

Dark furniture and warm tones make this light-filled room feel super cozy.

Just… wow. Does it get more breathtaking?

In Good Taste: Charles Hilton Architects

living room Charles Hilton Architects

Good morning, good morning, chic reader friends! We hope you are having a wonderful week. Ours is off to a terrific and busy start, which is really the best kind, if you ask us. 

living room Charles Hilton Architects

We are having a few days of weather in the 60s, which is a very happy occurrence for me, in particular, because, whether it’s 90 or -20 (Well, I mean, it’s NC, so it’s never -20…) I am outside playing tennis or golf or basketball, digging holes in the yard, finding bugs… Life with a little boy is never dull!

desk in bay window Charles Hilton Architects

The gorgeous designs of Charles Hilton Architects are never dull either, which is why we are always so excited to see what they come up with next!

kitchen Charles Hilton Architects

Are you big on open floor plans? Or are they not really your thing?

white kitchen Charles Hilton Architects

We always love chatting with designer friends about this because they tend to have a strong opinion one way or another. These rooms really straddle that line between open and closed, giving the airiness of a more open floor plan but still maximizing space.

office overlooking the water Charles Hilton Architects

This office is spectacular–and feels much more like being on one of the beautiful boats outside the window than inside a house. What a great feeling! (My boys would love this!)

blue and white dining room Charles Hilton Architects

Blue and white is a time-tested combination that can sometimes lean toward the more traditional side of things. The touches in this home give it that modern touch.(Did you see that lucite console and those benches? So cool!)

blue and white pool house Charles Hilton Architects

If there’s anywhere blue and white must live, it’s the pool house. This pool house remodel is so vibrant.

blue and white pool house Charles Hilton Architects

Fun patterns, textures and, of course, architectural details lend this pool house a fabulous personality.

guest bedroom Charles Hilton Architects

Speaking of personality. We’re loving everything about this room! Especially its versatility. The fabric and art are our favorite touches, but, if you took them away, the room would have a totally different–but still beautiful–feel. 

child's bedroom Charles Hilton Architects

Oh the views… Everything about this room is a cozy child’s haven that will grow as they do. We think a window seat should be mandatory for a child! I can’t count the number of hours I spend curled up in mine! (It’s no coincidence I have two in my grown-up house!)

blue and white bathroom

Just, yes… It’s all perfection!

pool and pool house Charles Hilton Architects

If the pool house is good the pool must be pretty great too, right? This one definitely doesn’t disappoint! And in only a short couple of months we can be lounging by one again! 

What’s your favorite Charles Hilton space?
