A lavish collection of 30 spectacular homes around the world that are the epitome of chic, including coastal escapes, country retreats, and dramatic city residences.

Chic is sophistication and elegance, balance and ebullience. It is stylish and fashionable, but never trendy and never tries too hard. On this exclusive Veranda tour of stunning homes, the talented designers and architects offer palettes, patterns, and points of view that are utterly confident and breathtakingly inspiring. The book opens the curtains on a fresh world of design that’s ready, once again, to receive visitors.

Veranda Simply Chic is a celebration of interior design that is authentic, alluring, and always dazzling. The inviting homes share a common thread of understated elegance and elevated ease; they round out the architecture and setting in such a way that evokes harmony and delightful surprise, a sense of “oh, I’d like to spend time here.”

Chic design can be found all over the world, from San Miguel to Montreal, from Paris to Pebble Beach, from the English coast to Maine’s rocky shore. The glorious homes an intimate house tours in Simply Chic range include:
  • mountain hideaways and seaside-retreats, 
  • metropolitan manses and country cottages
  • tony pied-a-terres and even woodsy lakeside cabins.
Simply put, natural elegance can be found in any abode where warmth and welcome are paramount.
