Things We Love: Blonde Wood in Every Room

We don’t know if it’s true that blondes have more fun. (Although, as a lifelong blonde, I could made a strong case for it!) But we’re pretty sure, if these gorgeous homes are any indication, that blonde wood make a house more fun.

Nothing says “party” quite like a beautiful bar. This one has so many fun elements and this chest is the perfect base. The mix of woods here is fabulous!

We’ve never seen anything quite like these blonde wood pendants! They are incredible and blend so well with the bar stools. Can we talk about these vases too? All we know is that we want them!

Hardwoods are obviously a perfect choice for kitchen style. We love them in a variety of shades, but we think a lighter flooring choice feels casual and fun. What do you think?

The great thing about using wood is that you really can’t go wrong when mixing and matching shades, stains and color tones. These rustic, distressed beams pair perfectly with the more refined wood below.

We are still loving the casual air farmhouse tables lend, even to more formal spaces. Paired with a natural fiber chair, it’s such a great look!

From bright bold, shades….

To more subdued tones or neutrals, every color pairs well with blonde wood!

We’re a little jealous of all this organization right by the back door. (It’s nearly impossible to believe, but I still don’t have that mudroom I’ve been thinking about for months…)

Shiny and fresh or raw and rustic, we love blonde wood any old way! Are you a fan?

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! We love our readers!

In Good Taste: Carpenter & MacNeille

house-and-garden- Carpenter & MacNeille

Good morning, readers! Are you having a good day? I am in Parma, Ohio, today, a suburb of Cleveland, preparing to speak at the Cuyahoga County Public Library.

If you are in the area, I would love to see you at 7pm this evening! 

Carpenter & MacNeille

In the meantime, take a peek at the good taste of Carpenter&MacNeille Architects and Builders.

kitchen -Carpenter & MacNeille

 From gorgeous chef’s kitchens that would make even the worst cook want to spend more time behind the stove,

 To fabulous architectural details like rustic beams that set the tone for the entire home,

Carpenter & MacNeille is masterful at creating spaces that reflect a family’s style. See more of why we love them here and here

 Light, bright and beautiful, touches of wood and stone give this home a mountainous feel but still make it seem airy.

dining -Carpenter & MacNeille

The right touches make somewhere new seem lived in and loved through time, the perfect combination of old and new.

This dog has the right idea! Window seats are some of our favorite places for resting. (And this dog looks like it was designed to go in the house!)

bathroom -Carpenter & MacNeille

There’s no better combination than Carolina blue and white — especially during basketball season! Switching it up with blue trim is a fun touch.

 And this tub is the most relaxing focal point we can imagine!

living-room -Carpenter & MacNeille

Sitting by the fire has never looked so good. A game table is a great way to incorporate family fun.

kitchen -Carpenter & MacNeille

With an outdoor space like this, who needs to go inside at all? This space is amazing!! We think you will agree that the work of Carpenter & Macneille is in good taste.  Happy Tuesday, sweet friends!
