We talk a lot on Design Chic about combining the old with the new. Grandmother’s silver on your tulip table, fun buffet lamps on an antique buffet, a new, shiny bar cart filled with Grandfather’s decanters. There are so many fantastic ways to incorporate the old with the new on the inside. But, on the outside? It’s harder to pull off. Perhaps that’s why we’re so enchanted with Kevin and Lee Kleinhelter’s gorgeous Atlanta home. (We’ve talked about Lee’s Good Taste before.) It’s streamlined and modern but still feels familiar.
Happy Wednesday, wonderful readers! We are officially on beach time now and loving every minute of it. Well, except for the unpacking. All the unpacking… I hate packing. So much. I hate unpacking even more. Probably mostly because of the harsh reality that I will have forgotten something crucial. Like how I have three eyelash curlers but not a single pair of my son’s tennis shoes. (I’m currently FaceTiming with my husband who, when I answered, said: “I’m just calling for the list of things you forgot.” #truelove.)
Anyway… This fabulous Brookhaven Cottage, owned by Meg and Scott Harrington, is much more together than I am, thankfully. The entryway in this amazing home is like a sneak peek of what is to come. The on-trend agate lamp and sea glass beads juxtapose perfectly with the antique mirror and painting. The rest of the house is just as awesome. But don’t take our word for it! See for yourself!
