Good morning, chic readers! And get ready to be wowed! 



We know we were by Pietro Cicognani Architecture and Design, with photography by Francesco Lagnese Photography.



We were in awe of the range of this lovely, lovely volume of work



From the perfectly charming,



To the elegantly rustic,



To rooms that absolutely burst with color, flavor and light, 



This book has the right inspiration for any space you’re looking to create.



This studio is nothing short of magic, an artist’s dream that takes advantage of every inch of view!



There’s storage space, and then there’s storage space. What a magnificent place to keep things tidy and out of the way.



Outdoor parties are no problem at this elegant home.



These outdoor spaces–even in photos–are positively transporting.



We loved traveling to all these exquisite homes inside the pages of Pietro Cicognani Architecture and Design. We think you will too!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!

Savor the season even more with a copy of my instant USA Today Bestseller, Feels Like Falling!

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.
