From starkly beautiful kitchens…

To luxuriously elegant baths,

The interiors that this firm orchestrates are almost as spellbinding as the views that lie beyond so many of the windows,

Creating calm, comfortable homes that are ultimately unforgettable.

Just a tiny hint of metallic adds a touch of glamour to this stunning dining room.

It would be hard for the inside to match the splendor of the outdoors beyond, but this bedroom is perfection, the right mix of stately and cozy!

Ohara Davies-Gaetano kitchen

Light floors and floor-to-ceiling windows juxtapose with the dark tones of this kitchen to make it seem airy and open yet refined.

Far from boring cabinets these furniture-like vanities add so much flair to this gorgeous bath.

The right coastal touches give a nudge to the beauty outside the window without an ounce of coastal kitcsh.

So, yeah, we’re book fans. But, even still, we love everything about this bookcase! Sometimes less is more.

When your glass- and serve ware is as stunning as this, open shelving is a must! 

Are you loving the work of Ohara Davies-Gaetano as much as we are?

Thanks so much to everyone who has taken the time to read my latest novel Slightly South of Simple! I am so grateful to each and every one of you. If you have read, would you consider writing a brief review on Amazon? You don’t have to have purchased there to review, and reviews help authors so very much! Thanks for all your support!

What The Relished Roost is saying about Slightly South of Simple:

If you have a second, you have to take a peek at the gorgeous post from Karolyn from The Relished Roost recreating protagonist Ansley Murphy’s Peachtree Bluff home. It’s perfection!

“The lovely yet somewhat poignant “Slightly South Of Simple” grabbed me by the heart the minute I realized it had three daughters as the main characters. It was such a heartfelt story about a single mother whom years after the loss of her husband has events that force the return of her three daughters, while trying to allow herself to finally find herself and move on.  There are twists and turns but lots of love throughout the winding path taken on the this journey. This is the perfect Summer read ladies!  Of course once again I am partial  because the matriarch “Ansley” is also an interior decorator so I truly do relate and relish her sense of style and work ethic.
I believe you will not only be able to picture these lovely women and men in your mind by Kristy’s vivid description,  but also their environments , whether it be a home or a boat!” — Karolyn Stephenson, The Relished Roost

What People Are Saying About Slightly South of Simple

Slightly South of Simple

“My prediction is that writers come and writers go, but Kristy Woodson Harvey is here to stay. The warmth, wit, and wisdom of this novel pave her way into the exclusive sisterhood of southern writers.” (―The Huffington Post)

Things We Love: Piece & Palette

Piece + Palette dining room

When it comes to creating a fabulous home, we don’t know about you, but we love finding things that can simplify our design process. So, when we stumbled across a gorgeous new site that does just that, Piece + Palette, we were intrigued right away!

Piece + Palette sitting room

Not only are Marisa, Jen and Lauren three best girlfriends from NC but these ladies have style and a concept that is totally unique and, if you ask us, totally brilliant!

Piece + Palette dining

They created Piece+Palette to simplify the design process in multiple ways. For one, many of the rooms you see on this post (plus tons more!) are available on their site to shop, in whole or piece by piece. You can literally snag an entire room, which, frankly, sounds amazing, or choose a palette and pick pieces to create a customized room. 

Piece + Palette living room

If that sounds overwhelming, no need to worry! Interior designer Lauren Burns is on hand to answer questions along the way. You can actually upload pictures of your specific space and get Lauren’s advice on whether they will work.

Piece + Palette living room

Or, if you have a specific questions about something that’s been puzzling you–like, whether the light fixture you’ve been eyeing on Piece+Palette is too big for your room–you can get expert advice right away!

Piece + Palette kitchen

Such a huge, huge help when it comes to taking the guesswork out of creating a beautiful, functional room. 

Piece + Palette sitting area

If you’ve ever stood in the Benjamin Moore store with 200 blue paint chips in your hand, you know, like we do, that paint colors can be tricky! Benjamin Moore sends high res photos of the paints used in Piece+Palette designer rooms that Lauren has designed, and, better yet, these lovely ladies match paint colors to fabrics they offer on the website.

Piece + Palette pillows

As if that weren’t enough, Lauren is also on hand to give color advice. If you’ve ever painted and entire room only to realize that you meant to have a warm gray but you got lavender, you can imagine how invaluable this advice is!

Piece + Palette flowers

These ladies all have different tastes and styles that are represented on the site, but they always agree on these three key principles:

Piece + Palette porch

  1. Just because it’s expensive, that doesn’t make it fabulous!
  2. Quality over quantity…always, always, always!
  3. Be unique!  Make your home your sanctuary and a reflection of yourself and what you and your family love.

We couldn’t agree any more… If you’re looking for a summer spruce, stop by and see our new southern friends at Piece+Palette!

What People are Saying About Slightly South of Simple:

“Kristy Woodson Harvey really knows how to tell a southern tale. Every single time her stories unwind gently, like a soft wind in Georgia, then that wind catches you off guard and throws you into her characters’ tumultuous lives. Slightly South of Simple is the same. One gracious, old home inherited from Grandma, one mother who has so many secrets if the walls talked they would pour out like lemonade on a hot summer day, and three headstrong sisters, all working their way through the chaotic mess and joy of life, together. I loved it.” (–New York Times bestselling author Cathy Lamb )
