If tidying up is life changing, so is streamlining. Studio McGee has mastered the perfectly finished but never overdone look in this stunning California home.
Sure, some stuff brings us joy. But do you know what brings us more joy? Clean countertops!
And getting rid of the waffle iron that I was certain would make me the world’s coolest mom. You know the kind. It had all the plates so I could make ghost waffles or Christmas tree waffles or heart waffles or Mickey Mouse waffles or whatever. You know who doesn’t make great waffles? Me. Do you know who does? Nature’s Path.
I tend to be a food hoarder. I don’t know why. I blame it on not having a Whole Foods close by and getting there three hours away and thinking Wait. Do I have too much quinoa or do I need more quinoa? And then I buy the quinoa and then I get home and I already have four bags and how on earth are the three of us going to eat that much quinoa? That stuff expands. But these shelves are goals if ever there were goals. No food hoarding in this kitchen.
I am, fortunately, a bit of a bathroom minimalist already, so that’s slightly less of a challenge. Even still, a vanity with lots of storage is part of the plan for my post-Florence bathroom.
We’ve always thought that freestanding tubs look minimalist. Mine arrived a couple days ago. It is absolutely gorgeous. And 1400 pounds. There will be a crane involved. Don’t worry. I’ll post a video on Instagram! (@kristywharvey)
Baskets everywhere are the absolute best for storing until you can get to things so they don’t become clutter.
And who really needs all that stuff on the nightstand collecting dust? Well, I mean, I have a pile of books the size of a small SUV, but I am reading those. So they aren’t collecting dust. They’re necessary.
Are you a fan of the streamlined and chic look? Or are you in the more is more camp? They certainly both have their merits, and we adore them both!
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We love seeing you here!

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.
After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.
Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.
But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.
Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).
