House Tour: Charming Mountain Cabin

Greg Busch and Meridy King cabin

 

When the temps start to drop, the days get shorter and the leaves begin to change, we immediately want to escape to a charming cabin

If you’re like us, you’re still limiting your travel for now.

But, lucky for us, Greg Busch and Meridy King and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles are letting us share this absolutely pitch-perfect cabin that is the ultimate place to while away a few fall days by the fire.

For the epitome of cabin style, rustic wood paneling is an absolute must–and these designers have absolutely nailed it, even in the kitchen.

Elegant yet outdoorsy finishes create a seamless transition from the indoors to the lovely porches,

And wood beams and a stone fireplace lend that mountain feel in droves.

Every vignette is thoughtfully designed to capture the feel of the beauty outside the door,

And practically made for a good night’s sleep and capturing a stunning view to wake up to.

We are huge fans of having guests, and these lovely guest rooms are the perfect place to house plenty of them–

And a sophisticated bunk room is great for welcoming friends of any age.

Even the bathroom details are teeming with mountain style.

Simple accessories create showstopping moments,

As each room flows seamlessly into the next.

We think this is the perfect place to getaway all fall long. Are you a fan of this stunning mountain retreat?

My next novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING, releases April 28, 2020! I can’t wait to share this tale of Gray and Diana, their unlikely friendship, their summer loves and their chance at happily ever after, the sequel, with all of you. It’s never too early to preorder from your favorite local bookstore or online retailer!

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.

Things We Love: 2020 Kitchen Design Winners

kitchen design winners pendant lights over island with brass hardware

 

Happy second day of 2020, friends! We hope your brand new decade is off to a terrific start and that your resolutions are going great–if you made any, that is. (Of course, we think you’re perfect the way you are!)

 

kitchen design winners brass hardware

 

Here in Beaufort, we celebrate New Year‘s twice, once at 7 pm and once at midnight. At 7, disgraced pirate Captain Shack walks the plank covered in the ill humors and bad intentions of all the people of Beaufort. 

 

kitchen design winners brass pendants

 

He jumps and washes out to sea, as does the negativity of the year before, making way for a fresh beginning. (To be clear, it’s a fake pirate…) It’s such a fun symbol of letting go of the past to make way for the future. Plus, there are bonfires and s’mores, so that’s a bonus.

 

kitchen design winners with brass pendants and wood stained island

 

When it comes to fresh starts in the New Year, I bet quite a few of us begin in the kitchen, clearing away the clutter (and the candy!) of the old year.

 

kitchen design winners marble island with brass hardware and orientlal rugs

 

If you’re looking for some kitchen inspiration to start your 2020 off right, look no further! This year’s Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles kitchen design winners know more than a few things about what’s new, what’s next and what’s fresh in all things kitchen. 

 

kitchen design winners marble island with brass hardware and orientlal rugs and lanterns over the island

 

We are love, love, loving seeing lacquer in these beauties. 

 

kitchen design winners marble island with wood range hood and round pendants over island

 

And chic organic elements are always welcome. They give this kitchen a distinct feel.

 

kitchen design winners withe coffee bar and marble countertops

 

Brass is still happening,

Bar stools just keep getting cooler (and more distinctive),

 

kitchen design winners with round table and shiplap ceiling

 

And, of course, space for family and friends and plenty of warmth defines these gorgeous rooms, which are the heart of the home to say the least. We’re taking notes, making lists, and getting lots of ideas for a 2020 refresh in our own kitchens. What about you?

House Tour: Nice in Neutrals

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles| Emily Followill Photography

 

We are big fans of all sorts of decor. Bright and bold, rustic and farmhouse chic, whimsical and fun…

 

neutrals in living room designed by Phoebe Howard

 

But, if we had to pick a favorite, nothing, to us, creates a soothing home–the kind that makes you exhale when you walk through the back door–quite like a palette of neutrals with a touch of blue

 

dining room designed by Phoebe Howard in neutrals

 

In this dining room, pattern and texture create a room that is soothing but never boring,

And an uncluttered feel in keeping with the color scheme makes for a relaxing TV room with plenty of comfortable seating for the whole family.

This chic light fixture proves that neutrals don’t need to be boring,

And, sometimes, the simplest vignettes are the chicest. (This chair has us swooning!)

Some houses feel absolutely pitch perfect, each room flowing to the next and the next effortlessly. From a sunlit kitchen,

To a serene bedroom suite, this lovely home is most certainly one of those.

We don’t know about you, but kitchens are some of our favorite spots in the home, and we love seeing what’s new and what’s next–but also what traditions are still firmly in tact. Because Southern design is always a little bit about tradition. Even in the kitchen.

 

kitchen winnersINTERIOR DESIGN Melanie Davis Design, ARCHITECT Historical Concepts-Photography by Lacey Sombar

 

 

AH&L always delivers the best of the best, and these kitchens are no exception. Want to see what’s new–and what’s sticking around for another season? These are some of our takeaways:

 

kitchen winners
INTERIOR DESIGN Melanie Davis Design, ARCHITECT Historical Concepts |Photography by Lacey Sombar

 

  1. Lucite bar pulls. We’re obsessed with this sleek take on an old favorite. Still chic, but a little subtler.

2. Woven bar stools. And thank goodness. My Serena & Lily ones have practically never been sat in!

 

INTERIOR DESIGNER Mallory Mathison Inc., ARCHITECT Brandon Ingram| Emily Followill Photographer

 

3. Brass! We’ve always been fans of mixing and matching metals, and we’re loving seeing more brass in these stylish kitchen. We hope this trend sticks around.

 

 

kitchen winners

4. Dark painted cabinets. We think of ourselves as being drawn toward light and bright, but we’re loving dark painted cabinets. Gray and navy are our favorites.

5. Mixing and matching. Who says the kitchen has to be all or nothing? Wood cabinets and painted islands are the best of both worlds.

6. Subway tile and white marble. Our old standbys are sticking around!

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).
