Feeling Blue

 Since it’s the beginning of Labor Day weekend, we’re trying to bring in some good, blue vibes!

 Blue skies and blue water, and, of course, blue interiors.


Bathed in Blue

Windsor Smith Home

Happy Friday, friends! First, we’re so sorry about the issues we’ve been having on our blog lately and the pictures being slow to load. We have some great people working on it, and hope that it will all be fixed by Sunday. (Seriously this time…)

AND, I have some exciting news! I (Kristy) recently signed a book deal with Berkley, an imprint of Penguin Random House, and my first novel will be out early next Spring! Yay! I probably don’t even have to tell you that the main character is an interior designer! So, to counteract our slow blog problems, we’re posting the rest of “Bathed in Blue” over at my new blog! There are some gorgeous blue and white photos (and a great quote!) that you won’t want to miss!

It won’t take the pictures long to download and you can let me know what you think of my new author site. (Shari at Little Blue Deer is working on it!) You are, after all, my most stylish friends! And, don’t worry. The new book/blog won’t affect Design Chic one bit! We hope you all have an amazing weekend!
