top 10 blog post of 2018

 

Happy second week of 2019, wonderful, amazing readers! We want to thank you so much for making 2018 our biggest, best year yet. May 3, 2010 Mom and I posted our very first post, on natural fiber rugs, thinking that we would keep this little spot on the internet for a year, tops. (For the record, we love that first bedroom we ever posted, designed by the Suzanne Kasler, just as much now as we did then.) Eight and half years later, we have grown from two followers (Dad and Will) to hundreds of thousands, and we look forward to being here with you every single day! We are always thinking about what you are loving, what you aren’t, what’s new, what’s next, and what makes our hearts beat a little bit faster. We are thrilled to share our most popular posts of 2018 with you. Thank you for another amazing 365 days in the books. And here’s to the next eight and a half!

There might not be anyone in the world who loves her hometown quite as much as I do. All the amazing people of Salisbury, NC were so supportive and encouraging when I was growing up and continue to be so now. I am so proud and honored that my books, THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM and SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE, were #1 and #3 on Rowan County’s 2018 BESTSELLER LIST. Thank you, thank you to Wendy Persse and everyone at South Main Book Company for handselling my stories all year long—and to all the readers everywhere who allow me to keep doing what I love year after year. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Salisbury and Rowan County! There really is no place like home!

Good morning, chic readers! We hope that, wherever you are, you are staying warm, warm, warm today! After a very rare snow on the coast of NC, we are looking forward to warmer weather in the week ahead. One of our favorite things to do at the beginning of a new year is look back and see what our readers loved most the year before–so that we can do more of it! Here’s a peek back at our Top 10 Most Popular Posts of 2017. We hope they bring back fond memories!

House Tour: Watersound

Happy 2017, wonderful readers! We hope you had a terrific holiday season and are feeling refreshed, rested and ready to tackle a brand new year. We spent most of the day yesterday doing our favorite New Year’s Day activity: organizing!

2016 Kitchen of the Year

Okay. So maybe not our favorite. Maybe our favorite when it’s over and everything looks pretty?

Speaking of favorites, let’s talk about your favorites. Your favorite Design Chic posts of 2016, that is. These were our most-viewed, most-popular posts of the year.

If there’s ever something you want us to post about, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We love writing about what you want to read. With a new look for Design Chic, a new book coming in April and, of course, a really, really organized pantry, we think 2017 is looking bright. What are you most looking forward to this coming year?

Looking for more 2017 inspiration? I’m chatting with my friends at Your Carolina about how to create a “Life by Design” this year!
