In Good Taste: Minnie Peters

`Minnie Peters design kitchen with beams and ladder  

There are certain things that always make us think of fall: Wood stacked in the fireplace

  Minnie Peters kitchen with beams and soapstone counters and wood island  

Beautiful, rustic beams

  Minnie Peters design kitchen with soapstone countertops  

An old-timey stove…

  Minnie Peters entry with wood beams  

And raw wood accents–especially when they’re paired with fall leaves of every color. 

  Minnie Peters glass front sliding cabinet in kitchen  

Minnie Peters’ great taste, filled with lovely European influences, has us feeling fall today!

A soothing color palette,

  Minnie Peters louvered closet door  

Antique accents (and wellies by the door!), 

   laundry room  

And the most charming architectural accents, 

   butler's pantry with white china  

Add up to a chicly lovely home that looks warm, cozy and lived in in the best possible way.

A few antique accents add charm in droves,

And create eye-catching vignettes that are impossible to look away from.

  Minnie Peters bathroom with freestanding tub and chandelier over tub  

This tub is exactly the kind of place we’d like to soak with a cup of apple tea all fall long… What about you?

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

House Tour: Charming in Corona Del Mar

Corona Del Mar house

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you loved the good taste of Kelly Nutt yesterday as much as we did!

Corona Del Mar dining

With statement lighting…

Corona Del Mar kitchen

Wood accents…

And charm galore…

Corona Del Mar dining

There is so much to love about Kelly Nutt Design.

Corona Del Mar bedroom

This house in Corona Del Mar is absolutely ideal for spending a relaxing vacation, a laid-back spring break or for cool, comfortable living all year round. 

Corona Del Mar bedroom

A study in simplicity with just the right amount of detail to keep things interesting, this is the kind of home that feels like a serene oasis. 

Corona Del Mar bedroom

Pretty pink accents create a calming and sweet retreat for catching up on rest. 

Corona Del Mar cabinets

And plenty of hidden storage creates a soothing, monochromatic palette for the eye where clutter is hidden away. 

Corona Del Mar bedroom

A fun pattern on the floor stands out against an all-white bath for a uniform look that still packs a punch. 

Corona Del Mar laundry room

Even the laundry room is fabulous! We don’t know about you, but we could move right into this gorgeous Corona Del Mar home–and would love to be weekend guests! What about you?

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Last week we had the pleasure of spending a fun-filled long weekend in the place that we think gets as close to Christmas magic as you can without going to the North Pole: NYC! I had the most amazing day of meetings with the team at Gallery Books (Simon & Schuster) about all that is THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, the sequel to SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE and the second book in Peachtree Bluff series–and filmed fun videos that I can’t wait to share with you! To celebrate the upcoming launch (April 3, 2018!) and get you in the holiday spirit, we’re giving away a $100 Amazon gift card for your holiday essentials. Enter below!
