Happy Thursday, friends! We can’t believe it’s almost the weekend already.

We love the simple, chic look of this oversized subway tile,

And, complete with dark grout, this tile makes for a very stylish shower.

Dark colors add a new dimension.

Or brilliant in brass, the right hardware is the perfect accent for these simple tiles with big personality.

This marble subway tile is positively swoon worthy! It’s a luxe take on a trend we love.

But who says subway tile should just be limited to the shower? Subway tile in this entire bathroom makes such a statement.

Forget going to the groomer. Subway tile is even the perfect material for a dog shower! Now this is a pampered pooch!

Great news, Kindle readers! Slightly South of Simple is now available on Kindle Unlimited. If you haven’t started my Peachtree Bluff Series, now is the perfect time 🍑 And, oh my goodness, thank you to all who have downloaded! Slightly South has

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey Beach house book
 

I am so excited that my new novel Feels Like Falling releases on April 28!

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.

In Good Taste: Kendall Wilkinson Design

 

So many elements combine to create the perfect home

 

 

The right blend of calming influences and vibrant energy, 

 

 

The artful combination of old and new, 

 

 

The finishing touches of both glamour and whimsy

 

 

It is a tricky formula, one that takes a seasoned eye and an experienced hand. 

 

 

And, judging from these pictures, it is a formula that Kendall Wilkinson has mastered. 

 

 

From unique touches, like these bar stools, that define a chic kitchen

 

 

To utilizing a grand view as the ultimate focal point, 

 

 

Every space from the largest to the smallest, the most used to the least, is artfully conceived and executed. 

 

 

Speaking of art… This bathtub speaks for itself.

 

 

And all the right finishes create a sanctuary in this stunning spa-like retreat. 

 

 

 

From the peak of glamour,

 

 

To the simply elegant, Kendall Wilkinson Design creates spaces perfectly suited for the homes in which they reside–and the families who love them. 

What’s your favorite Kendall Wilkinson room? Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
