What People are Saying About 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)

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a fabulous day. Today, we are dreaming of school getting out, summer days on the beach and… pendant lighting! (Not necessarily in that order.)
You know that we think lighting, more than most anything else in a home, has the potential to totally change the look and feel of a space.
Nowhere is that more true than the kitchen, where lighting is so important for a functional work space–and where opportunities for accessorizing and really making the space your own are fewer.
Whether you’re looking for lighting with a shade that stands out a little from the rest of the color scheme,
Or lighting whose color blends in but still makes a fabulous, bold statement, the right pendant can totally transform a kitchen.
One of our favorite elements of a kitchen island is the ability to hang pendants over top.
But, even if you don’t have an island, pendants are super chic over a dining table. We actually think a pair–or more–of pendants can be an even more beautiful look than a statement chandelier.
These pendants combine fabulously with these bar stools to contribute to the overall industrial vibe of this kitchen.
Metallics always add a hint of glamour, a touch of sophistication that’s a little less over the top than a chandelier. We absolutely adore the touch of gold inside these bold, white pendants.
Speaking of metallics, why try to make the chain blend in when it can absolutely shine! We love how these pendants connect with the fume hood for a totally custom look. What is your favorite style pendant? Do you prefer one that blends in or is made to stand out?
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
“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 )
Oh my goodness, we have Spring fever in the worst possible way! It is so, so warm here this week (I laid out on the top porch yesterday… Don’t tell my dermatologist!) and we can’t help but hope that it will stay this way!
We are so happy to be able to open the windows, enjoy the breeze and let the sunshine pour in.
And, of course, with the sunshine comes that little voice in the back of our minds… That little nudge that tells us it’s time for a spring spruce!

Happy President’s Day to you, our chic friends! We hope you have a wonderful day!
“Kristy Woodson Harvey writes about the bonds between women. The blood-is-thicker-than-water relationships that exist between daughters and mothers and grandmothers. She inserts Southern drama and subtle hints to unearthed secrets that keep you reading till the very end. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.” Brenda Pruitt, Cozy Little House
Happy Tuesday, friends! We hope your week is off to a great start–and we know it’s about to get better. The good taste of Kishani Perera is sure to make you smile!
You know we love a good bookcase–and we appreciate a bookcase full of volumes that are actually read. What a perfect chair to sit awhile and enjoy one of them.
Speaking of fabulous things to fill your bookshelves, I got my very first advance copy of my new novel, Slightly South of Simple, over the weekend. I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it on other people’s bookshelves!
We love the look of stained wood paneling, but sometimes it can make a room feel too dark. This room is the perfect balance of elements that feels light yet warm.
When it comes to kitchens, this designer has incredible range.
To simple grays and whites with a splash of fun color, kitchen style abounds in this designer’s portfolio.
Striking architectural details can make a bathroom feel super chic.
Whether dark and dramatic or light and bright, beautiful paneling makes a bathroom pop.
A fun light fixture adds so much fun to a gorgeous bathroom. And that tub… Total relaxation!
The nursery might very well be the most fun room to decorate. This one is so adorable and will easily transform from baby to toddler. We love, love Bla Bla animals like the ones in the crib. Cloud the cat is one of little Will’s favorites!
Fabulous outdoor spaces are always, always the icing on the cake–when the cake is a stunning home. This space is perfection. We might never want to go inside!
Thank you so, so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you do!
