Good morning, chic readers. We hope your week is off to a wonderful start. We don’t know about you, but we are dreaming of Memorial Day. All those white dresses and seersucker suits, not to mention sunshine and pool time. 

Barbara Westbrook living room

Here, there’s a big band party and dinner to mark the occasion, not to mention cookouts and beach time, boating, a parade. We know it’s not the official start of summer, but it feels that way all the same.

Barbara Westbrook living room

This bright, airy room feels perfect for summer and is the epitome of Barbara Westbrook’s good taste. The perfectly worn rug and those welcoming Carolina blue shutters might be our favorite parts… Although it’s hard to choose, isn’t it?

Barbara Westbrook dining

Dining rooms often feel too open to us, a little bit empty and formal. This one is as warm and welcoming as the friends we can imagine around it!

Barbara Westbrook kitchen

Rustic beams, wood cabinets and dark floors make this kitchen feel cozy and intimate, the perfect place for a long chat over a good cup of coffee.

Barbara Westbrook kitchen

Wide plank floors have to be one of the best kitchen flooring options of all time. Whether a house is old or new they add that instant feeling of history and age–the graceful kind, of course.

This is the inspiration photo dream kitchens are made of! Plenty of room for food prep, storage, setting a fabulous table… This kitchen has it all! 

Barbara Westbrook kitchen

For large kitchens, we adore this double island look. One for eating, one for food prep. It’s perfect!

Barbara Westbrook bedroom

Even during the summer when the temperatures are sweltering outside, we love coming hope and cozying up. Stunning throws and rich textures (Velvet for summer is everywhere!) give a bedroom a sanctuary feeling all year round. A chaise for enjoying the view is a bonus!

Barbara Westbrook bathroom

Black and white is one of our favorite color combos, of course. Shades of gray only up the ante!

Barbara Westbrook bathroom

We’ve always loved a little glamour in the bathroom. Pretty metallics and an accent chandelier fit the bill perfectly.

This is exactly what we were talking about! The kind of scene Memorial Days were made for. 

Wishing you a little sand in your toes–and a copy of Slightly South of Simple in your hand–this Memorial Day weekend!

What Design Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“I have to rave a little bit about Kristy Woodson Harvey’s books…they have honestly turned into my favorite books to curl up with and just get lost in. I recently just read her newest book, Slightly South of Simple {click here to see review} and I was captivated by the character relationships that develop throughout the story, how I was able to relate to the characters, and be transported to a different state through her writing. All of Harvey’s books just ooze with southern charm, emotion, and interesting family dynamics.” –Lauren, A Touch of Southern Grace
