Things We Love: Touches of Spring

 

Good morning, chic readers! Another week of social distancing and basically not leaving the house has us concentrating on all the little touches we can add for spring.

 

 

If you’ve been a Design Chic follower for a while, you know how much we depend on light fixtures to change the look of a room. This one is too good to be true!

 

 

Exhibit B. Now, this is how you do a lantern right!

 

 

This sunroom is storybook charming. We love every element!

 

 

A new nightstand can totally jazz up a bedroom. We love a pair, but it really isn’t a requirement! A mismatched set can be eclectic and cool.

 

 

And you know that really great feeling you get when you have a fresh, clean set of sheets to crawl between? Imagine when you have an entire fresh, clean set of bedding!

 

 

Isn’t it amazing what just a tiny tick of red can do? So fun!

 

 

We can’t think of anywhere we’d rather be than in this boat.

 

 

Well, maybe other than on the beach where that adorable chair and umbrella ended up!

 

 

Gingham touches, fabulous outdoor furniture and the most amazing coffee table add up to a truly enviable outdoor space.

 

 

And hanging chairs make it even better! They are one of our most favorite design elements.

 

 

During these times when the great outdoors are bringing us so much solace, they really do deserve to be celebrated.

 

 

And these outdoor spaces do just that in high style, from main pieces to finishing touches. Are you planning on making any changes to your home or porch for spring?

 

 

Ready for a new spring read to enjoy on your fresh made-over porch? Check out Feels Like Falling, the book Mary Kay Andrews called, “Your next summer sizzler!” Preorder now to avoid shipping delays. Official release date April 28, 2020.

Sunbrella Performance Fabrics Indoors and Out

We had the best, best time at High Point Market last week. One of the highlights, for sure, was taking over Sunbrella’s Instagram page. 

 

 

They’re a company that needs no introduction, really, a brand that has become synonymous with top quality outdoor fabrics.

Sunbrella

 

 But the best part of our takeover was learning that Sunbrella is so, so much more than just outdoor fabric.  

 

We were so impressed with the array of textures, patterns and styles that we’re convinced there’s nowhere we can’t use Sunbrella! From our living room couches…

 

To our playrooms, of course. Anywhere that could use a stain-resistant, fade-resistant fabric is absolutely perfect for Sunbrella.  And their drapery line? We’re redoing all of ours! A drapery fabric that won’t fade is almost too good to be true.New, fun, exciting Sunbrella patterns and colors abounded in High Point.

From a little dash,

 

 

To a whole entire truckload, a home really can’t have too much Sunbrella! What’s your favorite way to use this versatile fabric?

House Tour: The Perfect Blend of Old and New

blend of old and new living room

Lauren DeLoach Interior Design

 

There is nothing like a home that has the feeling of being collected over time, of having a history, a sense of place and belonging, that idea that it has come from somewhere and has something to say.

 

blend of old and new living room

 

At the same time, the ease of a new house is pretty hard to beat. (As people who have spent years redoing their fair share of old homes, we can vouch for this!)

 

blend dining room

 

The best of both worlds is that perfect combination of old and new, a feeling and sense of place with the updates and advantages that a new house can offer.

 

blend of old and new dining room

 

This gorgeous Atlanta home by designer Lauren DeLoach is the right combination of old and new, those touches of history that tell a story and that feeling that everything is fresh.

 

blend of old and new kitchen

 

One of the biggest benefits of new construction is being able to create moments that feel like a family. Like these gorgeous ceilings in the kitchen.

 

blend of old and new bedroom

 

We are all about bedding, and this bedding is absolute perfection! That neck roll is stunning.

 

blend of old and new bathroom

 

Bathrooms are perhaps where we spend the most time agonizing–especially because we’re bath people! This one is a place we’d like to spend a lot of time!

 

porch blend of old and new

 

Outdoor spaces are paramount to the way a home feels and lives.

And this one, we think it’s safe to say, feels like paradise!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

House Tour: Cloth and Kind

 

Good morning, chic readers! Are you in full-on Thanksgiving hysteria yet? We are getting so excited, and, okay, truth time: We pulled out the Christmas playlist on Amazon Music today. (If you haven’t listened to the Train Christmas album, you totally should!) So, yeah, it will be 71 degrees tomorrow, and the turkey hasn’t even been bought yet much less cooked, but what’s the harm in breaking our no-Christmas-music-until-after-Thanksgiving rule? It’s not like we’ve already bought the tree

 

While you’re putting the finishing touches on your Thanksgiving grocery list, check out this fabulous house tour from the beyond amazing Cloth and Kind. It’s the perfect home, holiday or not!

 

Built-in bookcases are one of our favorite features in any home. The addition of the brass library lamps takes the look over the top!

 

A blue island is the perfect pop in an otherwise white kitchen. It adds so much dimension. 

 

A teeny vignette becomes a focal point with the addition of this beautiful rug and distressed piece of furniture.

 

There’s nothing better than starting and finishing the day in the sunniest spot in the house!

 

We love hot pink in any space…

 

And beautiful blues too, of course. 

 

There’s no space we love more than a window seat, especially when the weather gets cooler and we draw closer to home. 

 

Double sinks provide plenty of space for getting ready…

 

And a soaking tub creates a spa-like retreat. 

 

Just add a Turkish towel!

 

A playful child’s room is such a delight,

 

And a darling basin sink creates plenty of space for multiple kids to get ready for school.

 

Isn’t it amazing? We love Cloth and Kind’s use of color, pattern and texture–even on the porch.

In Good Taste: Paul Bates Architects

Paul Bates entrance

So, yesterday was the big day. 

Paul Bates living room

Well, I guess maybe not the big day. We didn’t get married or have a baby or move or publish a new book or anything. 

Paul Bates living room

But we bought school supplies, and, in our family, that’s a big, huge deal, a fresh start, a new beginning. 

Paul Bates kitchens

In buying school supplies, the details are everything. And what you pick is the foundation for the entire year. 

Paul Bates kitchens

In that way, buying school supplies is a whole lot like architecture

Paul Bates kitchens

The plan is the start, the foundation for all the good to come. 

Paul Bates kitchens

And the details are everything. 

Paul Bates kitchens

As you can tell from these fabulous photos, from the traditional to the very modern, Paul Bates Architects know all about the importance of details. 

Paul Bates kitchens

Their good taste, evident in each one of these stunning houses, truly speaks for itself. 

Paul Bates dining room

From blonde wood beams that pair perfectly with steel windows, 

Paul Bates family room

To library paneling so beautifully executed it speaks volumes of its own, 

Paul Bates living room

Each architectural detail breathes life into the space. 

Paul Bates porch

Indoors and out, good taste abounds. And, like back to school shopping, every space feels like a new beginning. 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! We always love it when you stop by!
