Blank to Beautiful: Ken and Duke Tate

 

Happy Tuesday, chic readers! We hope you had the most amazing Memorial Day Weekend and got some time off to celebrate with family and friends–even if it was via Zoom! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this incredibly fun interview with architect extraordinaire Ken Tate and his son–author and sales and marketing manager Duke Tate. 

 

 

This dynamic father-son duo is overflowing with talent. Listen in as I chat with them about what it’s like to work together in a family business, what project Ken still has on his wishlist and get insight into one of the most fascinating creative processes I’ve ever heard–that actually inspired some of the storytelling in Ken and Duke’s latest collaboration, The Alchemy of Architecture. Check out more of Ken’s breathtaking work below.

Check back next Tuesday when I’ll be talking with New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews not only about her incredible novels but also about the design style that has inspired more than one story!

 

 

Pool and beach season are officially underway! Start yours on the right note by slipping a copy of my latest novel, the instant USA TODAY bestseller, Feels Like Falling, into your beach bag! Already read it? My Peachtree Bluff Series, featuring a trio of sisters, their mother and a family secret that has the potential to reshape what it means to be a family, is a great choice. And Slightly South of Simple and The Secret to Southern Charm are now available in mass market paperback!

In Good Taste: ADAC’S Architect of the Year

 Jeffrey Dungan entrance

Oh my goodness… We are SO excited! In case you haven’t heard, Jeffrey Dungan has been named ADAC’s 2017 Architect of the Year!

 

We aren’t surprised.  Not even a little.

 Jeffrey Dungan

One, quick glance at Dungan’s work and it’s evident that he is completely deserving of this honor.

But there is nothing better than seeing talented, kind people whose work you have loved for years get acknowledged in such a big, big way!

From well thought out floor plans,

To extraordinary built-ins,

The perfect windows for every space,

To architectural details that create a mood,

Each space that Dungan undertakes is more fabulous than the last.

We could never pick a favorite space, but this rustic charm might be up there. It’s perfect for a cozy winter day.

 

Congrats again, Jeffrey! We are so excited for you and think it goes without saying that this is a well-deserved honor!

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

Thanks so much to everyone who has been so supportive of my Peachtree Bluff series. If you haven’t read Slightly South of Simple or The Secret to Southern Charm, pick up your copies before The Southern Side of Paradise (NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER!) releases May 7, 2019!

 

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).

House Tour: Forever Home in Buckhead

Forever home. It’s a tall order, a big request and a giant leap.

Taking that giant leap and creating a home where we want to stay forever is a big, huge deal.

Slightly South of Simple

What People are Saying about Slightly South of Simple

“Harvey’s devotion to realistic character development pays off by the end of the novel, which provides clear resolutions to some plots and leaves other hanging in a way that practically begs for a sequel…because Harvey is meticulous about closing out each character’s arc in a satisfying way….SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE is so warm, inviting and real…”—Bookpage

In Good Taste: Charles Hilton Architects

living room Charles Hilton Architects

Good morning, good morning, chic reader friends! We hope you are having a wonderful week. Ours is off to a terrific and busy start, which is really the best kind, if you ask us. 

living room Charles Hilton Architects

We are having a few days of weather in the 60s, which is a very happy occurrence for me, in particular, because, whether it’s 90 or -20 (Well, I mean, it’s NC, so it’s never -20…) I am outside playing tennis or golf or basketball, digging holes in the yard, finding bugs… Life with a little boy is never dull!

desk in bay window Charles Hilton Architects

The gorgeous designs of Charles Hilton Architects are never dull either, which is why we are always so excited to see what they come up with next!

kitchen Charles Hilton Architects

Are you big on open floor plans? Or are they not really your thing?

white kitchen Charles Hilton Architects

We always love chatting with designer friends about this because they tend to have a strong opinion one way or another. These rooms really straddle that line between open and closed, giving the airiness of a more open floor plan but still maximizing space.

office overlooking the water Charles Hilton Architects

This office is spectacular–and feels much more like being on one of the beautiful boats outside the window than inside a house. What a great feeling! (My boys would love this!)

blue and white dining room Charles Hilton Architects

Blue and white is a time-tested combination that can sometimes lean toward the more traditional side of things. The touches in this home give it that modern touch.(Did you see that lucite console and those benches? So cool!)

blue and white pool house Charles Hilton Architects

If there’s anywhere blue and white must live, it’s the pool house. This pool house remodel is so vibrant.

blue and white pool house Charles Hilton Architects

Fun patterns, textures and, of course, architectural details lend this pool house a fabulous personality.

guest bedroom Charles Hilton Architects

Speaking of personality. We’re loving everything about this room! Especially its versatility. The fabric and art are our favorite touches, but, if you took them away, the room would have a totally different–but still beautiful–feel. 

child's bedroom Charles Hilton Architects

Oh the views… Everything about this room is a cozy child’s haven that will grow as they do. We think a window seat should be mandatory for a child! I can’t count the number of hours I spend curled up in mine! (It’s no coincidence I have two in my grown-up house!)

blue and white bathroom

Just, yes… It’s all perfection!

pool and pool house Charles Hilton Architects

If the pool house is good the pool must be pretty great too, right? This one definitely doesn’t disappoint! And in only a short couple of months we can be lounging by one again! 

What’s your favorite Charles Hilton space?
