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).

Top Ten Ways to Add a Touch of Wood to a Kitchen

Artichoke, Ltd

 

Kitchens are the subject of many a home renovation these days, and there are so many tiny details that can help define the kitchen to make it a chic heart of the home.

warmth of wood
Ike Kligerman Barkley

 

One of our favorites? Wood! Here are ten ways to add a touch of wood to one of everyone’s favorite spaces.

1. Incorporate Beams: Wood beams add a hint of rustic charm to any space, no matter how elegant.

2. Add Bar Stools: When it comes to bar stools, we think mixing materials is always a good idea. This combination of wood, metal and rattan adds color and texture for a chic look.

3. Accentuate the Island: A little bit of wood goes a long way. This rich tones of this island add juxtaposition and charm.

4. Use a Library Ladder: A library ladder is one of our bucket list home items. While we’d ideally love to have the library to go along with it, a ladder can be incredibly useful in a kitchen too.

5. Repurpose a Piece of Furniture: We tend to think of built-ins in the kitchen, but there’s no real reason why everything has to be. A favorite chest, armoire or corner-cupboard looks beautiful and adds a surprising element. Extra credit if it’s an antique!

6. Mix in Butcher Block Counters: For the ultimate in functional wood additions, butcher block counters are a perfect fit. This workspace is as pretty as it is practical.

7. Rethink Shelving: We love the look of open shelving, but it doesn’t have to be an all or nothing approach. These pretty wood shelves are the right touch of casual while cabinets lend plenty of space for covered up storage.

8. Choose Hardwood Floors: Need we say more? Any color, any style, this design staple has staying power for a reason!

9. Decorate with Cutting Boards: For a low maintenance, inexpensive touch of wood, a cutting board fits the bill perfectly. It adds all the charm of wood and makes sure cook prep is only an arm’s length away.

10. Incorporate Fun(ctional) Accessories: We all want our kitchens to be pretty, sure. But of all the rooms in the house, function in the kitchen is key. Wood tools and ways to organize them add a hint of this great material while keeping things organized.

What’s your favorite way to incorporate wood into a kitchen? 

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today! We hope you have a fabulous week!
