With one week of summer left, we are savoring every moment–
And remembering today that there are some places–and houses–that feel like summer all the time.
This Malibu home by Mark D. Sikes is one such place.
Warm but not fussy,
Chic but never overdone,
This home is the epitome of California cool in every season.
Stylish work places,
And the coziest bedrooms,
Combine to create an oasis that is big on style.
The thoughtful details of every room are, perhaps, the very best part. From a well-placed reading sconce for guests,
To a perfectly picked wallpaper,
Colors and tones blend,
While patterns blur,
And each room has a personality all its own that still feels like a cohesive part of the whole.
A well-collected feeling pervades.
And comfort is key in this chic Malibu home. It’s the perfect place to spend this remaining week of summer–and savor that sunshiney feeling all year long.
Thanks for visiting Design Chic! We always love seeing you here!

Thrilled for the Christmas in Peachtree BluffTrailer
The fourth book in my bestselling Peachtree Bluff Series is releasing October 26 but is available NOW for preorder from your bookseller of choice!
In the newest installment of New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey’s Peachtree Bluff series, three generations of the Murphy women must come together when a hurricane threatens to destroy their hometown—and the holiday season in the process.
When the Murphy women are in trouble, they always know they can turn to their mother Ansley. So when eldest daughter Caroline and her husband James announce they are divorcing—and fifteen-year-old daughter Vivi acts out in response—Caroline, at her wits end, can’t think of anything to do besides leave her with Ansley in Peachtree Bluff for the holidays. After all, how much trouble can one teenager get into on a tiny island?
Quite a lot, as it turns out.
As the “storm of the century” heads toward Peachtree Bluff, Ansley and her husband Jack, with Vivi in tow, are grateful they’re planning to leave for the trip of a lifetime. But Vivi’s recklessness forces the trio to shelter in place during the worst hurricane Peachtree has ever seen. With no power, no provisions, and the water rising, the circumstances become dire very quickly…and the Murphy sisters, who evacuated to New York, soon realize it’s up to them to conduct a rescue mission. With the bridges closed and no way to access Peachtree Bluff by land or air, they set sail on Caroline’s boat, The Starlite Sisters, determined to rebuild their beloved town—as well as their family.
In “pitch perfect tones” (Publishers Weekly) and written with her signature Southern charm, New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey explores the magic of Christmas, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of family in a tale that reminds us that, no matter the circumstances, home is always where we belong—especially during the holidays.
