House Tour: Urban Grace Beauty in Alys Beach

Alys Beach house designed by Urban Grace

If you’ve ever been to Alys Beach, you know the it has an impossibly chic, almost austere feel to it.

An entire town of gleaming white stucco, with wood or black accents and even the occasional aqua front door, it is the poster child for luxurious uniformity.

It is the kind of place where everything is similar yet each home, building or shop is differentiated from the next by a few special, unique features that make it stand out. In short, we absolutely love it and think that its power and glamour is in its elegant exterior.

Stepping inside this fabulous Alys beach home designed by the talented team at  Urban Grace Interiors, we think you might agree that its beauty is also in its interior.

This is the kind of home that whispers. It doesn’t jump out at you and say, “Look at me, look at me!”

It simply wraps you in its embrace and lets you relax, the worries of the real world floating out to sea.

A calm and soothing palette extends from the outside to the inside, making the entire space feel cohesive and perfectly planned, 

And not the slightest detail or space–even the laundry room–has been overlooked when it comes to making this a retreat to remember. 

Full of comfortable spaces and cozy spots, that Urban Grace does so well,

Texture and a pop of color combine to make this home simplicity at its finest.

Few accessories keep the space uncluttered so its inhabitants minds can be uncluttered as well.

And every space is perfectly appointed for relaxation in style.

Nothing in this well appointed home fights for attention. Instead, it all works together to bring a sense of harmony.

The inside is fabulous, sure. But, when we step outside again, back to that exquisite facade that makes Alys Beach so enviably lovely, it is a reminder that the outdoors are perhaps why we visited this spot in the first place.

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!

House Tour: Beauty by the Sea from Urban Grace

Estuary House from Urban Grace

 

Good morning, friends! All we know is that today a good day to explore this Beauty by the Sea from Urban Grace. Actually, come to think of it, there’s not a bad day for that. (Also, can we talk about this gallery wall, please? Perfection!)

 

Estuary from Urban Grace

 

I spent a fabulous weekend by the sea with my Tall Poppy Writer friends soaking up the best of what the Hamptons has to offer. Between a book signing at The White Fences Inn in Water Mill, staying at The Topping Rose House in Sag Harbor, and a handful of other spectacular events throughout the Hamptons, I was thoroughly spoiled.

And, as luck would have it (if you call the inconvenience of a cancelled flight “luck”…) I got to spend an extra night in NYC to boot–and finally meet one of my coolest Instagram friends, Ashley Bellman. She’s a host of New York Live and QVC and all around fabulous. (And nice. So nice. Don’t you love it when that happens?)

Plus, since this is a room full of fabulous bookshelves, it seems right to say that I got to go visit my publisher, Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster, and check out a really fabulous display of my forthcoming May 7 novel THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE

All in all, it was a great bonus day in the city, but the real bonus might have been coming home and seeing that THERE IS FINALLY SOME PROGRESS AT MY HOUSE.

 

Urban Grace by the sea

 

If you’re new here, let me get you up to speed: Hurricane Florence invited a tornado friend to have a party at my house on the Carolina coast. Let’s just say they didn’t use coasters, the house has been gutted since September, and they will not be invited back. 

 

Urban Grace by the sea

 

One of my favorite parts of the house is the third floor. It has charming angular rooflines, the best views going and, as of yesterday, shiplap in every nook and cranny. Honestly, I was on the fence about this move, but it is our son’s playroom, and, now that it’s up, I am so thrilled with the decision. It is darling!

If I needed any more confirmation, this beach beauty is making me more confident than ever.

It makes use of basically all of our favorite things: steel windows

The right kind and amount of shiplap in all the right places, (P.S. I’m emailing you for this wash color, Urban Grace!)

 

Urban Grace by the sea staircase

 

And more light than money can buy, which, let’s face it, is the most important part of any beach house

Urban Grace masterfully combines unexpected touches,

A nod toward tradition,

And practicality with aplomb.

They should write a handbook, really.

And as for the main event? Well, it isn’t too shabby either… 

We hope you’re feeling warm and sunny now. We know we are! Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
