We know. We know. We want to step inside this Alabama Southern Estate designed by the one and only James Farmer RIGHT NOW too!



The columns… The balcony… The trees… The setting… This is a quintessential Southern estate in every sense of the word.



And, y’all, the inside is just as dreamy as the outside. Beautiful antiques set the scene right off the bat,



And stunning textiles and accessories complement one-of-a-kind architectural details.



We miss grand dinner parties, don’t you?



This dining room is made for hosting them!



Perfect paneling and handmade brick blend with cozy furnishings to create a stylish sitting room we’d want to curl up in all winter long,



While a mix of color and texture add up to a homey yet very refined feel.



In the best designs, one room flows seamlessly into the next.



That is certainly the case in this beautiful home.



We love how every, single space feels connected.



Bright hues…



And bold patterns combine effortlessly in Farmer’s practiced hand,



Beautiful blues,



And cozy fabrics,



Combine with an enviable bath,



To add up to the perfect retreat.



We’d certainly love to be guests in this well-appointed room!



But, really, lemonade on the porch swing might be even better!



There are simply no words to convey the charm!!



This is the absolute perfect poolhouse and blends beautifully with the setting and main home around it. This is one we’re going to want to tour again and again!

(Three cheers for one of our faves, Emily Followill Photography! This is certainly a case where a picture is worth a thousand words.)

This Southern Estate reminds me so much of Dogwood, the rambling pre-revolutionary home in Under the Southern Sky! I am over-the-moon about my first starred review from Publishers Weekly! Can’t wait for all of you to read Under the Southern Sky on April 20! It’s available for preorder now wherever books are sold. 

From PW: Harvey (Feels Like Falling) delivers a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss in this tearjerker…Harvey brings her characters to life, including Greer, whose heartbreaking journal entries reflect on scans of the embryos and imagine the family she and Parker would have. These passages are particularly wrenching, making the book’s happy ending all the more moving. Fans of women’s fiction will devour this. (Apr.)
