Good morning, chic readers! I can’t believe it, but my sixth novel, Feels Like Falling, officially releases tomorrow! If you’re looking to add to your bookshelves–or your beach bag–I’d love it if you’d check it out!

Speaking of bookshelves, they are, hands down, one of our favorite parts of any design scheme.

But getting the perfect blend of books and accessories, deciding to go monochrome or to mix it up, can be tricky.

But a neutral palette also lends a clean, streamlined look and, as these shelves prove, can still be eye-catching.

To us, nothing is quite as fabulous as a library ladder–except for maybe these gorgeous library lights!

And, of course, a cozy sitting area where one can curl up with a good book is practically mandatory!

Whatever look you love best in your bookcases, I would love it if you added Feels Like Falling to it! Here’s a little more info:

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd-couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness.

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her extremist husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger, Diana Harrington, fired from her job at the local pharmacy.


Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a worn-out Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn. But when her first love returns, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.



Thanks so much, wonderful readers, for being so incredibly supportive not only of Design Chic for these past nine (almost ten!) years but also for being such ardent supporters of my writing career. I am here, six books later, because of the incredibly generous blogger and influencer friends I’ve made along the way and because of my steadfast readers who continue to buy my books, review them on Amazon and Goodreads, put them in their book clubs and show up at my events. I am unspeakably grateful for each of you!
