The Best of 2012

Maybe we’re a week late, but we thought we’d take a moment to revisit some of our most-pinned Pinterest images from 2012. If they were great once, we thought it might be fun to see them all in the same place, all over again! We hope you enjoy!
Fittingly, some of our most popular pictures of 2012, were on white clapboard houses in the year when we bought our own white clapboard house in Beaufort!

Along that same vein, all of you were just as taken as we were with these adorable cozy cottages. It’s like Hansel and Gretel — without the witch.

It’s no surprise that burlap drapes were a hit. Doesn’t this look like the most inviting spot to get a little work done?

A perfect spread for a perfect meal. The botanical prints are the icing on the cake!

Who wouldn’t love a clean and simple butler’s pantry like this one?
Or a sparkling, elegant butler’s pantry like this?

Hands down, these out-of-this-world farmhouse sinks were a Design Chic favorite of 2012.
A farmhouse sink is so incredibly charming!

Eat-in kitchens are a great way for the family to get together.
We love the jar of starfish on the table in this eat-in kitchen.
A beautiful coffered ceiling makes such a statement!
The detail in this coffered ceiling is amazing!
We don’t know if our laundry rooms could EVER be this organized… But we’re working on it!
Historic shore decor can take many different forms.
We just love them all!
We hope our new living room feels a little something like this!
We think Joy Tribout has great taste and all of you agreed!
There’s no better way to spend a day than with a little beach house dreaming
So, there it is, the year’s most-pinned pictures in a nutshell. If you’re new to the blog, that was sort of like watching the highlight reel from the past season. Thanks to all our readers, old and new, for making 2012 so much fun. We hope that 2013 will be just as beautiful!

  24. Hi Kristy

    Do you have any idea what the wall color is on the coffered ceiling kitchen pic #11 I believe. I tried to find the source on your pinterest board but could not. I am working on a project right now that I would love to use that color. If you know the source I can do the leg work. Thank you so much!!

  25. I see why these were “most pinned” they are fabulous.
