House Tour: Amy Studebaker Design


Good morning, chic readers!



We are so excited to share this stunning home by Amy Studebaker Design with all of you today.



The perfect mix of elegance and comfort,



Detail and simplicity, this is one we’re going to want to tour again and again. 



We love a chic powder room oh so much. And this one is truly Pinterest-worthy!



The only thing better than an elevator? An elevator as chic as this!



The combination of texture and soothing color palette creates a swoon worthy bedroom!



Talk about glamour! Each element of this bathroom is chicer than the next.



This twin bedroom is so cute–and suitable for kids and adults alike. 



That said, there’s nothing better than a bunk room! This one is perfect for sleepovers.



Every detail in this pretty bath makes it come to life. 



And a precious playroom is fun and fresh but also in keeping with the tone of the rest of the house. The kids have their playroom…



And the adults do too!



We can’t think of a better place to spend chilly nights by the fire,



And this gorgeous space is ideal for entertaining



Right down to the bathroom!



The beautiful pool house might be one of our favorite spaces!



Light and luxe, it’s a bright spot to recharge after a long day of sun and swimmingWhich is your favorite space?

House Tour: Foxhall Residence

If you loved the good taste of Zoë Feldman yesterday, you’re in for a treat with the stunning Foxhall Residence.

The heart of home is always an important moment. We’re swooning over these chic white appliances–

And open shelving is always a favorite!


Zoe Feldman bar with antique doors


Big rooms are great, but it’s the small moments that really bring a home to life. Every detail of this bar–the doors, the arch, the backsplash–is totally eye-catching.

Touches of fresh green are such a beautiful statement of warmth, life and simplicity,

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy. Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her extremist husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger, Diana Harrington, fired from her job at the local pharmacy. Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a worn-out Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience. With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn. But when her first love returns, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all. In her warmest, wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.
