“Harvey’s devotion to realistic character development pays off by the end of the novel, which provides clear resolutions to some plots and leaves other hanging in a way that practically begs for a sequel…because Harvey is meticulous about closing out each character’s arc in a satisfying way….SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE is so warm, inviting and real…”—Bookpage
Good morning, chic readers from here in Hoschton, Georgia! The Slightly South of Simple tour is off to a terrific start. I am thrilled to be here today at Deaton Creek to talk to a fabulous group of writing, downsizing and creating a life you love.
I’ll be in Atlanta later on the in tour (May 6 at Boxwoods at 11 am). In the spirit of Georgia, Slightly South of Simple’s setting, we thought we’d tour this fabulous Atlanta home by Barbara Westbrook and Elizabeth Hanson of Westbrook Interiors today.
Atlanta is one of our favorite cities because it combines the best parts of a big city and a small southern town.
And, whether it’s a traditional home and yard with a picket fence or high rise city living you’re looking for, Atlanta offers both in style!
This gorgeous Atlanta pied-a-terre has a view as beautiful as its interior.
We love the clean, uncluttered, streamlined look of this entire home.
We are so excited to by celebrating the beginning of the Slightly South of Simple book launch in style! We’re partnering with our friends at Reebonz to give away a stunning black, Salvatore Ferragamo Darina back, which retails for $1750, to one lucky reader!

We all have them, those favorite places in the world that we love to return to again and again, year after year. For our family, one of those places has always been Martha’s Vineyard. We love quaint, charming places on the water with a few good shops and a few good restaurants. When it comes to those, Martha’s Vineyard is hard to beat. As if we needed anything else to love about this wonderful town, this beautiful home by Liliane Hart Interiors has just put us right over the top–and has us dreaming about a return trip! Take a peek. We think you’ll love it just as much as we do.
We hope you enjoyed this fabulous Martha’s Vineyard tour. Do you have a favorite vacation spot?

With the Slightly South of Simple book tour only weeks away, we have Georgia on the brain! SSoS is set in the fictional town of Peachtree Bluff, but this Riverside house in Georgia is completely real–and totally charming!
Packed with cozy style and adorable features, this kitchen looks like the perfect place to enjoy hot, sweet cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven with someone you love.
This exposed ceiling makes an incredible architectural feature–and creates the feeling of so much more space in a room. What a great hack for low ceilings!
Everything about this room calls for curling up by the fire and enjoying a good book. With the weather this week, that might be something we could all use a little more of!
Another incredible ceiling that totally defines this room. We love when the decor simply serves to intensify the charm of the architectural details of the house. This whole room has a casual-yet-elegant feel.
Wood paneling adds instant character–and a game table infuses a room with a feeling of fun and relaxation.
We love rooms that don’t take themselves too seriously.
Both of these bedrooms are comfortable, eclectic and totally in keeping with the tone of the house.
Natural fibers work in any home, really. But, for a river or beach house they are a necessity!
Cozy fire pits like these are where memories are made. Simply add good friends and great conversation!
What Design Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple (Preorder your copy today!):
“Kristy’s book(s) should be on every book club must read list…Kristy has the ability to make her characters come to Life!!!! You get to know them and feel like you are there with them.” –Patty Day, Patty’s Epiphonies
This canopy bed is so elegant. This bedroom feels like a getaway!
This gallery wall proves that it’s completely possible to do coastal without getting kitschy.
On vacation or just an ordinary day, this tub would feel like a vacation any time!
Because bathroom storage is always at a premium, we’re loving how these baskets not only take advantage of extra space but also add texture.
A settee at the end of a bed is so sweet. And there’s enough seating to have a party in this room!
Florida should be fun! And this porch knows it. The blue and white tiles add a touch of whimsy.
A pretty pool and lush landscaping lend a view worth coming back to.
From the kitchen to the bedrooms to the patio, blue and white porcelain is a unifying theme of this beautiful Naples getaway. If this beautiful coastal getaway doesn’t have you Spring dreaming, we don’t know what would! Where’s your favorite spring vacation spot?
Congratulations to Colette Darling, the winner of the $200 Framebridge Gift Card Giveaway! Stay tuned for our next fun giveaway.
