What People are Saying about Slightly South of Simple

“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

House Tour: Santa Monica Classic Beauty

house-and-garden Santa Monica home

Good morning, friends! Welcome to this gorgeous Santa Monica home! (The dog is welcoming you too!)

wood

We were immediately drawn to the outside of the home, and, inside, the white paint and dark wood look so clean and fresh.

We love the way this dark, antique chair pops against the white walls. And how well the dog hair blends too!

kitchen

The bright, white kitchen is sleek, streamlined and perfect for cooking for a crowd. LOVE the white Viking!

glass cabinets in kitchen

The glass cabinets, wine storage and baskets make sure that everything in the kitchen has its place.

bedroom

A bedroom with a sitting room and fireplace feels so cozy, perfect for enjoying a chilly afternoon!

bedroom

Bedrooms with slanted walls are some of our favorites. They are so charming and always filled with wonderful nooks.

When space is at a premium, a built-in bedroom is the perfect solution. Any little boy would love this room!

bathroom Santa Monica

Secret spaces and hidden passageways are perfect for parking a child’s imagination! And the roofline in this beautiful bath adds interest.

bedroom

Subway tile in a bathroom is one of our favorite picks — especially when it has great gray grout.

laundry-room

A laundry room like this would make us want to do the laundry! Well… maybe…

wood

Who needs a gym when you can exercise from the comfort of home? Looking out this window would be great!

A fantastic piece of Santa Monica real estate could never be complete without amazing outdoor spaces.

porches

We’d say porches like these fit the bill!

Dining, lounging, and entertaining… These porches are perfect for everything! 

A gorgeous home for a gorgeous day! Hope yours is wonderful!

House Tour: Buckhead Beauty Designed by Suzanne Kasler

Buckhead house - Suzanne Kasler

It’s been a whirlwind 25 days on the Slightly South of Simple book tour, where I have had the great pleasure of meeting amazing people in beautiful cities and towns across our Country.  I was in Atlanta just a few days ago, and I couldn’t help but think about that time when I saw this fabulous Buckhead home designed by one of our favorite designers, Suzanne Kasler. Take a peek. We think you’ll love it just as much as we do!

House Tour: Ponte Vedra

Ponte Vedra Phoebe Howard living room beach house

Good morning, chic readers! We are having another wonderful week on the fabulous Slightly South of Simple book tour! After an incredible fundraiser for Children’s Security Blanket, I am thrilled to be heading to Florida for events in Vero Beach and Palm Beach. (Details below!) 

To get in the Florida state of mind we decided to tour this gorgeous Ponte Vedra home today designed by the user-talented Phoebe Howard.

With a clean sleek vibe,

And that classic Florida feel,

This Ponte Vedra home is perfect for vacation or year-round living.

Soft blues and greens with splashes of natural fiber are perfection for a beach house. 

Pretty bedding in a coastal shade creates a charming oasis.

Bamboo is the ultimate material for designing a Florida retreat around.

A nautical touch here and there is always welcome.

Bright pops of fun colors scream vacation,

And can be reminiscent of the beauty that lies beyond the walls of the home. If you’re in the Florida area (Or Atlanta!), come visit me!
