We’re quarantined, COVID tested, and heading for our first major outing since March. My co-hosts and co-founders of the weekly web show and podcast Friends + Fiction, Mary Kay Andrews, Kristin Harmel, Patti Callahan Henry, Mary Alice Monroe and I (Kristy Woodson Harvey) are heading to Tybee Island for a few days of socially distanced strategizing and perhaps a little bit of writing time too. And we’ll all be LIVE in one place tonight at 7 pm with Brit Bennett of The Vanishing Half, so if you haven’t joined us yet, now’s a great time to start! 



After months of being home, it’s hard to even imagine relaxing somewhere else, or the on-the-go lives we had before! If you are staying home today–but wishing for a vacation–this Margaret Naeve Parker-designed house will take your breath away! 



Interior designer and founder of M Naeve, Margaret Naeve Parker has the most stunning signature style that is evident from the outdoors to the inside. 



This idyllic garden sets the tone for all that’s awaiting inside–



And the furnishings complement the exterior beauty perfectly.



Bold windows juxtapose with wistful furnishing and accents,



To create wow-factor rooms with unforgettable focal points.



From the most artfully-designed nook,



To a positively chic heart of the home,



This Sunset Beach retreat is a study in staid style and graceful minimalism. We loved every delightful minute–and can’t wait to tour again! Join us, won’t you?
