INDia Hicks An Entertaining Story

If summer is all about savoring every outdoor moment, and fall is about drawing closer to home, preparing for winter, we think now is the perfect time to stock up on one of our favorite winter entertainments: coffee table books! If you were here yesterday, I mentioned that we were planning a trip to one of India Hicks’s gorgeous rental homes last year for Mom’s birthday when Hurricane Dorian changed our plans. But, this year, we can all take a page from the India Hicks masterpiece, An Entertaining Story–and plan the perfect celebration for any occasion, in any season.

Speaking of seasons, designer Danielle Rollins is embracing all of them in her new book, A Home for All Seasons. Gorgeous color palettes, luxe layers and plenty of texture characterize these stunning spaces that we will want to curl up and look at again and again as we stay close to home this winter, making our own updates for what’s to come.

If you’re a fan of books in general, have you picked up my sixth bestseller, Feels Like Falling? It has been featured everywhere from Today.com to Travel + Leisure and is the perfect escape in any season! 

“Kristy Woodson Harvey has the voice of a best friend; a storyteller of the finest sort. Feels Like Falling takes us on a page-turning journey with two very different women who must somehow find their way together. Harvey asks the important question — how do we let go of the preconceived notions of our life ? And she answers that question with lyrical prose, an uncommon wisdom and a sharp wit. This is more than a novel about friendship, it is also a story for friendship: you will find yourself sharing it with everyone you love. Dive in; the storytelling is delicious!” —Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times Bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis
