In Good Taste: Andrew Flesher Design

Good morning, chic readers! We’re heading to NYC today (Hooray!), so this seemed like a fun day to focus on a New York designer–with plenty of good taste.

From the bright and bold

To the stately and sedate, 

With offices in New York and Minneapolis, 

Andrew Flesher Interior Design truly creates homes that meet its owners’ needs, no matter the location or the style. 

From a chic city spot that is big on style,  

MH44XC5

To a modern dining room with notes of the classic, 

MH12XD4

These designers understand that, sometimes, the little things are the big things–like this fun twist on an old favorite chair. 

From sweet coastal style with plenty of pop,

To bold stripes that define a sleeping area,

To a refined master that anyone would love, 

We’re huge fans of all these designers’ spaces. 

Not surprisingly, they do the outdoors just as well as they do the indoors.

We can’t think of a better place to spend an evening, no matter the season.

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We hope you enjoyed the good taste of Andrew Flesher Interior Design as much as we did!

10 Ultra-Chic Kitchen Cabinet Styles

TS Adams Studio

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope your Thursday is off to a great start! We’re pondering our favorite cabinet styles today. Few decisions in a kitchen are as major, as expensive or have as big of an impact, so it’s one of those ones that is important to get right!

If you’re looking for something simply elegant without too much fuss for your kitchen cabinet remodel, flat paneled cabinets are a perfect choice.

Rethink Design

 

One of our favorite kitchen styles is a combination of glass-front cabinets and closed cabinets. Glass front cabinets are perfect for display, but it’s nice to have a few to hide messier items behind as well!

Sometimes our favorite cabinets are… no cabinets at all! We love open shelving as a chic and inexpensive alternative to upper cabinets. So cute!

You know we love white kitchens, so, to us, you can never go wrong with white cabinets.

But dark wood is also a stunning look that creates depth, warmth and contrast in a kitchen.

Love the wood feel but want just a touch? Light wood is such a pretty choice, and these light wood open shelves give just a hint of wood without being too dark.

Coastal Living

 

Dark painted cabinets can make a kitchen feel dark and heavy, but, when paired with light floors, backsplash and tons of light, they’re such a perfect choice!

So, sure, we love white and wood, but there’s nothing like colored cabinets to add instant personality and fun in a kitchen. Especially in a vacation home, when you pick the right shade you really can’t go wrong!

Can’t make up your mind? We totally understand! Why not mix and match? It’s the best of both worlds and gives any kitchen a totally custom feel.

Things We Love: The Heart of the Home

Hi, friends! Is the kitchen the heart of your home? It definitely is in our houses.

We don’t know why it is that people always tend to gather in the kitchen, but, when your kitchen looks like one of these, it’s no wonder, really!

Adore Magazine

You know we’re a big fan of neutrals, but of all the places to be white and clean and streamlined, the kitchen is our favorite.

(We have glass jars with scoops like these. We love the way they look and they are also super convenient.)

Mariann Simon Design

We don’t know about you, but we spend so much time in our kitchens. We love walking in to total simplicity, and, for us, a mostly white kitchen is simple and chic.

The juxtaposition of white cabinets with these fabulous brick and wood floors is gorgeous.

Ok. Now we’re thinking our glass jars need an upgrade. Forget the lentils, rice and beans. Bring on the Oreos!

If you’re worried about your white kitchen looking boring, just make sure to mix up the texture. It adds tons of interest. A little something green never hurts either!
