Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

Lucy Williams living room

If you’re a long-time reader of Design Chic, you probably know that we don’t like to play favorites. But sometimes… Well, sometimes we just can’t help it!

Lucy Williams kitchen

Lucy Williams is one of those people who you simply can’t help but look at with wonder. 

Lucy Williams interior design

An incredible designer whose moodboards even inspire awe, 

Lucy Williams pillows

Who can mix patterns and textures with ease to create a totally customized look,

And who is a genuinely kind, supportive friend, and incredible blogger to boot, she is a one of our go-tos for inspiration in every sense of the word.

House Tour: Brookwood Hills Beauty

Brookwood Hills House Tour

We talk a lot on Design Chic about combining the old with the new. Grandmother’s silver on your Saarinen table, fun buffet lamps on an antique buffet, a new, shiny bar cart filled with Grandfather’s decanters. There are so many fantastic ways to incorporate the old with the new on the inside. But, on the outside? It’s harder to pull off. Perhaps that’s why we’re so enchanted with Kevin and Lee Kleinhelter’s gorgeous Atlanta home. (We’ve talked about Lee’s Good Taste before.) It’s streamlined and modern but still feels familiar. 

Brookwood Hills house tour entrance

And, inside, it gets even better.

Brookwood Hills house tour living room

We literally love every inch. Take a peek for yourself!

Brookwood Hills house tour living room

Steel windows are so chic to us. Love, love them!

Brookwood Hills house tour kitchen

And these barstools? What a find! We can sort of picture how excited Lee must have been when she found these!

Brookwood Hills house tour dining room

That chandelier? Do we even have to say it? Delicate, whimsical… It’s perfect!

Brookwood Hills house tour

One of our favorite things about this house is that it doesn’t “have to” anything. It doesn’t have to feel Hollywood Regency in the kitchen and then carry that through the rest of the house. It exudes the feeling that it was filled with pieces out of true love, not obligation.

Brookwood Hills house tour kid's bedroom

We bet every kid in town wants to sleep over in these bunks.

Brookwood Hills house tour bathroom

The orange is so good. And not too matchy or contrived.

All that glitters… You know the rest.

We want to have the guts to paint a room black. We really do. But when it’s presented as painting a room black and gold… Well, now we’re thinking we could do it!

Brookwood Hills house tour bathroom

The floor is utter brilliance. No one needs to talk us into that!

Brookwood Hills house tour game room

Coolest ping pong table ever. We want this. And one of those lucite foosball tables. And maybe that sheep. And the painting. We could go on like this for awhile…

Brookwood Hills house tour bedroom

Awwww! Why stop now? We want that dog too! What a gorgeous color! So simple. So chic. We mean the room. But the dog too.

Brookwood Hills house tour bathroom

Swooning.

On the verge of needing to call the paramedics.

Brookwood Hills house tour bedroom

Yellow=love. We are OBSESSED with yellow right now.

Brookwood Hills house tour bedroom

Dear Lee Kleinfelter, we know we don’t really know each other, but we’d like to move into this yellow room, please. Or any of the rest of the rooms in this house.

Brookwood Hills house tour bathroom

This bathroom feels modern and fresh. But somehow familiar too, right? We think that’s what creating a home is all about!

Good morning, chic readers! We are so excited to share the fabulous good taste of Avrea Wagner Interiors for the first time on Design Chic. 

Avrea Wagner living room

Ashley Avrea Cathey and Mary Beth Wagner, the dazzling Dallas duo behind the firm, combined forces in 2019. And the results, as you can see, are stunning!

We adore multi-use rooms. This sitting room with space for games and dining must be one of the most-used spots in the house.

These blue barstools add the perfect pop of color to a clean white kitchen. This one bridges the gap between open floor plan and closed beautifully.
