House Tour: Carolina Cottage

Janie Molster Designs

Good morning, chic readers! We don’t know how the weather is where you are, but the past couple days here have been warm, sunny and absolutely gorgeous! We are having major Spring fever, savoring every second outside–and hoping that this warm weather is here to stay.

Carolina cottage Janie Molster

Whether you’re really having summer weather or just dreaming about us, take a little mini-vacation with us today to this beyond fabulous Carolina cottage designed by Janie Molster.

There is nothing like beach cottage, with all those historic touches, to take us back to beach trips of our childhoods.

The thing we love most about this home is how Molster mixes those sweet, nostalgic touches–like wood paneling–with bright updated style.

This island is the perfect spot for sandy feet and pimento cheese sandwiches!

Fresh watermelon and strawberries from a roadside stand become accessories in this kitchen. 

Exposed beams and painted floors lend a classic look, 

While bright linens lend fun, fresh vacation-worthy appeal.

All I can say is that I wish I had seen this earlier… We had so many pairs of red Keds! What a fun way to incorporate them into the style.

Bold red and pretty marble update this bath, while hexagonal tile remains a throwback to a simpler time that’s still completely on trend.

Nothing says “beach retreat” like a fabulous kids’ room!

Beach towel goals!! We can’t decide which is cuter, the towels or the basket!

At the beach, driftwood really is the best accessory!

This utterly charming, classic exterior ties it all together–and, y’all, that view. This looks like the kind of place that has made a thousand memories and will make a thousand more. Thanks for touring with us today! We hope you love this Carolina cottage as much as we do!

More About Under the Southern Sky

 

Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.

Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.

Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Buxton Beach. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.

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.)

House Tour: Massucco Warner Warmth

 

Yes, of course, obviously, this is a fabulous home exterior. That goes without saying, right? But a Grand Wagoneer makes our hearts pitter pat every single time! It’s the perfect accessory for any driveway.

 

 

Some things never go out of style,

 

 

And this perfectly imagined space by Massucco Warner proves exactly that. 

 

 

Whimsical finishes,

 

 

Soothing colors,

 

 

And family-friendly spaces,

 

 

Add up to an effortless home

 

 

That hits all the high notes of style. 

 

 

We love every single space, but we think this stunning porch has captured our hearts most of all…

 

 

Summer party, anyone? We can’t think of a more fabulous space for hosting all year round!

Thanks so much for spending your summer with Design Chic. We always love seeing you here!
