Man, oh man, do we ever love a good before and after. And when it’s our own house, all the better! When we bought our house in Beaufort, our main goal was to keep things simple, clean and streamlined, so we could walk in and feel spacious and spa-like. But, well, let’s just say that, in this bedroom, maybe we took that a little too far!
The guest room is a fairly decent size, and a headboard just never felt like it took up enough space. Even when we eventually put a bench at the end of the bed, it just felt too light. When we saw this Whitaker Sun-Bleached Pine 4-Poster Bed, we knew it was the answer, that we could maintain that light and airy feeling while lending the room a sense of gravitas.
The color is absolutely exquisite–and the quality is even better than we anticipated. (And we had high hopes.) This is a heavy, sturdy, incredibly well constructed piece of furniture, truly heirloom quality.
And the color blends so beautifully with our favorite Shore Bench. We love the contrast between the textures here. The whole vibe comes off as coastal without being kitschy. And these pillows and throw are a gorgeous finishing touch–as is that stunning Serena & Lily duvet.
Y’all, we hate to play favorites, but if we could have these artichoke lamps (similar here) in every single room in our house, we totally would. They are so whimsical and fun, true statement pieces that can’t help but draw the eye.
We’re in love with these Venice Rattan Chairs. They are deep enough to be comfortable without being bulky and the open weave lends that light and airy feel we’re looking to achieve while still being substantial and high quality. Add a neutral pillow, made of the most luxurious linen, for a finished feel.
Plus, with colder weather coming, this throw is a must-have. (And, don’t forget, my eighth novel, CHRISTMAS IN PEACHTREE BLUFF, releases in 2 weeks on October 26!! SIGNED COPIES are available from Oxford Exchange, and it will be on shelves wherever books are sold!) And this week, Target has a special preorder of buy 2 get 1 free! Get 1 for yourself and 2 for gifting! What could be better?!
There are so many ways to style this fabulous 4-poster. From pretty in pink…
To accentuated with the perfect neutrals, it’s the kind of incredible piece that goes in any bedroom in ultimate style.
And light saltwashed oak. In any shade, this is a gorgeous update on a classic style that is the ultimate accent in any bedroom. We don’t know about you, but now we’re feeling totally ready for all those holiday guests!

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.
