Sea Island Cottage

Good morning, friends! Welcome to Sea Island, Georgia! Yes. It’s just as beautiful as it sounds.

And this house? We’d say firmly, firmly in the beautiful category as well.

Sea Island, Georgia seagrass-rug

This is our favorite rug for any room, from dressy to casual and everything in between. This is the type of room that this rug was made for.

The stunning art gives a nod to the sea. We are big fans of these corals!

Things fresh and green of all varieties are a lovely touch in this clean, white kitchen.

Lucite and modern art add sophistication to this coastal home.

There are really no words for this view. Have you ever?

This entire house is simplicity at its finest. The neutrals are dreamy and the textures bring the home to life.

And, oh, the splashes of soothing blue… We want to move in immediately.

bedroom Sea Island, Georgia

Luxe linens make this bedroom feel like a fabulous retreat while the wide stripes and fun prints keep it casual.

marble Sea Island, Georgia

We love a good herringbone floor, but usually think of it in terms of hardwoods. This marble is stunning.

porch Sea Island, Georgia

With a view this gorgeous, who would ever want to go inside? We know we wouldn’t!

As if the inside wasn’t gorgeous enough, the outside of this lovely Sea Island home is simply stunning.

wood

We adore the water blue and shutters and the beautiful contrast of the dark wood door agains the light exterior.

It’s coastal while still feeling like the perfect place to call home all year round. The palm trees are the icing on the cake! We hope you enjoyed this Sea Island stunner. Thanks so much for making us a part of your day!

Lake Michigan Cottage Renewed

renewed beach cottage

“Renewal” must be one of the most beautiful words in the English language. 

flowers

It conjures images of fresh flowers growing after a long winter, new babies born and that much-needed (but often far too seldom taken) time for ourselves. 

summer cottage

Summer, for us, is always a time of renewal, a time to relax the schedule at least a tiny bit and focus on more fun, less work and, of course, no school! 

renewal

More time with friends and family, longer days and shorter to-do lists help provide that much-needed renewal for us. 

Just like we do, our homes can begin to get a little tired, not only from basic wear and tear but also in the ways in which we adorn them. 

This beyond charming Lake Michigan cottage was ready for a bit of a facelift. 

And, in the hands of Chenault James Interior Design, it certainly found its new life. 

dining

A bright and sunny palette instantly breathes new life into a space, and nothing says “fun” like yellow and green. 

Old furniture gets new sense of purpose with fresh paint, making the entire space feel fresh but still maintaining a treasured home’s history. 

Nothing adds character to a beach cottage quite like wood paneling. 

But painting it makes the entire scheme feel lighter and brighter. 

Simple touches like these yellow floors add a vibrant element. 

And fun hints of the color bring joy into the bathroom. 

Even the laundry room has loads of personality! We couldn’t adore this Lake Michigan home–and its chic, effortless combination of old and new, any more. Renewal, indeed!

Wishing you a wonderful day, chic readers. Thanks so much for making us a part of your day!

House Tour: Sea Island

Sea Island Cottage

Good morning, friends! Welcome to Sea Island, Georgia! We are most excited to share this stunning home with you and to announce that my new novel, Slightly South of Simple, is coming out April 25, 2017! If you’re wondering how these two things are related it’s because Slightly South of Simple is the first in a series set in the fictional, seaside town of Peachtree Bluff, Georgia, which is very (fictionally) close and geographically similar to Sea Island!
