In Good Taste: Bria Hammel Interior Design

Good morning, friends! We hope you had a fantastic Martin Luther King Day. We always pack those little bonus days off from school with lots of activities and fun. I think I look forward to them as much as my son does. So we were both really bummed out that he had a sore throat. (Well, to be fair, it was much worse for him than it was for me since he was the one that had to be sick!)

He met his reading goal of 1,000 pages this month–I know, 1,000. First grade is not what it used to be!–so I was going to take him to Lowe’s and Dank Burrito, which was what he had requested if he met said goal.

Yes, Lowe’s is my first grader’s favorite store. He likes to build anything and everything. Unfortunately, I had to do the responsible mom thing and say no to burritos and boards. (And torx screws. He taught me what those were.)

But, today is a new day, and we’re saying yes, yes, yes to this lighting! Demure in the dining room? Never!

From the flowers in the sink to the perfect pendant light, this kitchen is positively dreamy.

And it’s no surprise, really.

Because dreamy, as you can see, is what Bria Hammel Interior Design does

In these designs, as in life, it really is the little things. The instant chicness (and practicality!) of a library ladder in the kitchen,

And a fume hood that the kitchen wears around like a jaw-dropping piece of jewelry.

Hammel does a twist on tradition so, so well,

And makes even the most industrial of spaces an experience.

Speaking of experiences… Have you ever? A reading nook fit for a princess! We think we’d like to curl up in one of these! But not on a sick day. Maybe on a burrito day. After a trip to Lowe’s. Whatever your favorites are, we hope you get to do them all today!

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic. We love seeing you!

House Tour: Hám Interior Design

If you loved the good taste of Hám Interior Design in yesterday’s post as much as we did, then this house tour is sure to be a treat. 

A mix of shiplap, fine architectural details, black and white flooring with updated finishes, this is a home that is at once livable and stylish. 

A chic reading nook in a beautiful office is a perfect unique touch that makes this home feel cozy as can be,

And an updated kitchen with touches of old world charm combine effortlessly,

The right blend of form, function and whimsy.

An easy, calming color palette lends an instant serene vibe from the entrance hall to the dining room and beyond.  

 

And what we perhaps love the most about this home is the splashes of the unexpected–like the bold art in this bathroom–that sets this place apart from all the rest. 

Pops of color keep it just light enough, 

While a pretty mix of details add character in every space. 

A place for everything is the icing on the cake! 

We hope you’ve loved this British getaway from Hám Interior Design just as much as we have!

8 Tips for Creating a Relaxing Bedroom Design

Serena & Lily

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a fabulous day! With Halloween behind us, we feel like now is the time that the sprint to the holidays begins. We don’t know about you, but we absolutely cannot wait! But we know the flurry of activity can be exhausting, which is why it’s more important than ever to make sure that your bedroom is a relaxing haven. Check out a few of our favorite tips for creating a relaxing bedroom retreat!

 

  1. Invest in cozy covers. With cooler temperatures rolling in, we love nothing more than adding a warm, fluffy comforter to the bed and curling up.
Andrew J Howard

 

2. Create a cozy reading spot. Darker, cooler days mean less time more spent outside–and more time snuggled indoors with a favorite book or movie. Having a beautiful space to indulge in some much needed relaxation time is such a bonus in a bedroom.

3. Let in lots of light

4. And find a pretty way to block out extra light when the time comes.

5. Bring the outside in with flowers, fresh foliage or even a whimsical nod to Mother Nature like this adorable owl.

6. Warm yourself by the fire. Nothing creates a fabulous, relaxing bedroom quite like a roaring fire on a cold evening or morning. It makes getting out of bed so much easier. And the good news is that there are so many chic, easy-to-install options, your home doesn’t have to be born with a fireplace to have one now.

7. Find the perfect bed. Obviously, the right bed, is one of the very most important parts of any pretty bedroom. It’s the reason we’re there to begin with! Form is, of course, as important as function. 

Serena & Lily

 

8. Keep the accessories sparse. We love a good accessory as much as the next girls, but, sometimes a cluttered nightstand can lead to a cluttered mind. For a restful night, we’d say, less is more.

 

Serena & Lily

 

Now we’re off to transform our sleeping spaces. Wishing you a holiday season full of fun–and a good night’s sleep!

The only thing better than plenty of space for cooking is plenty of space for eating. This charming nook is the right mix of glamour and beachy style.
