Things We Love: Herringbone Floors

Amy Morris Interiors

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a terrific almost-Friday. We are in the mood today to discuss fabulous flooring in all its forms!

The Fox Group

 

From a statement rug to a chic slate, seagrass carpet to sumptuous wool, flooring can instantly affect the feel of a space. I think we can agree this one is luxurious to say the least!

The Fox Grou[

We love all sorts of flooring to bring pizazz to a room, but, right now, we are really into herringbone floors.

 

DeVol Kitchens

 

A fun twist on an old favorite, herringbone adds interest to the floor without being too busy. By themselves or with a rug over top, they are so chic!

In a single color, they are beautiful, but different stains lend a totally different look.

While darker stains are more refined, elegant and formal. Isn’t this gallery wall too fabulous? The mixture is wonderfully imperfect.

We aren’t sure which part of this closet we like best. The black, white and gold is such a beautiful color combination.

Jenkins Interiors

 

This washed look in the bathroom contributes to the overall spa-like feel of this stunning bathroom. It is so streamlined and lovely, exactly the kind of place we’d like to start and end our day.

Are you a fan of herringbone floors? Or do you prefer your hardwoods in a regular pattern?

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

 

Also, if you want to know a little more about my new novel, SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE (Simon & Schuster, April 25, 2017) take a peek at the video below! (It’s only like 90 seconds. No major commitments here!) And I just saw that it is available for preorder  for $9.95!  If you haven’t preordered yet, today is a great day. Happy Thursday!

House Tour:Watersound Coastal Charm

T.S Adams Studio –  Courtney Dickey Design

Happy Wednesday, friends! We can’t believe that May is flying by so quickly. Today is my little guy’s end of the year picnic at school, and it’s sort of bittersweet. While I can’t wait for summer, it’s hard to believe that this is his last week of half-day preschool. Time flies! We feel like it was yesterday that we were plotting out how to decorate the nursery.

Water Blues…

Virgin Gorda

Today is our last day in beautiful Virgin Gorda. (Sadly!) You know how when you’re getting ready for a trip and you have a million things to do and it’s so stressful trying to get everything in order to leave not to mention triple checking for plane tickets and passports and hotel reservations and you catch yourself thinking, Is it even worth it to go?This is just a little reminder that yes. Yes it is worth it go. Because you come back relaxed and refreshed.You get a little break from the cooking and cleaning and then you remember that…

 

LiesAndOtherActsofLove_Cover3-2

Your new book is coming out a mere SIX WEEKS from tomorrow! Well, maybe that’s just me… But you get the idea. And we just wanted to let you know that everyone who preorders Lies and Other Acts of Love from their favorite book spot (Support your indies if you can! Our communities need those wonderful stores!) will be entered to win a $1,000 Shop Design Chic gift card! And will get some adorable printables that my precious friend Maghon from All She Wrote Notes is working on now. And we’ll have lots of other fun giveaways along the way. So, basically, that picture of your receipt sent to kristy @ kristywoodsonharvey.com is your golden ticket.

 

. And we just hope that, whatever comes your way today, it’s filled with the good, beautiful kind of blues. Wishing you a wonderful week!
