Charleston Women Spring 2024

65 | | /CharlestonWomen Whether your interior design style leans toward Cosmopolitan In-Town Elegance, Country Cottage, Coastal Glamour, Island Enchantment or Eclectic Blend, Stephanie Hunt’s “Simply Chic” is a must-read. Showcasing high-drama spaces from around the world, this book renders the reader as at home on its pages as they would be in the enchanting rooms featured within. Veranda Magazine, a Hearst publication, commissioned regular contributor and local writer Stephanie Hunt to write the book, the second of her coffee-table design books for the Hearst Home imprint. The goal of the project is to highlight the most dazzling homes that have been spotlighted in Veranda over several years, but in a new way that makes readers feel like they are visiting the interiors for the first time. “Defining the word ‘chic’ is easier said than done,” said Hunt, because chic is an elusive je ne sais quoi that is responsive to individual personality and place. An understated elegance, chic is an art form that cannot be taught; either you have it, or you don’t. Chic is not formulaic, either, as elements of surprise or mystery are often layered within an undercurrent of seamlessness. Chic is also not contrived; it does not hide imperfections, as they are often eclectically evolved. To spark your own flare for fabulous decor and lifestyle, let “Simply Chic” be your guide.
