One of the most common questions I get asked on book tour is about my editing process. If you want to know a little more about the process of making my sixth novel, Feels Like Falling—which releases April 28, 2020–come to life, check out this quick snippet!
Good morning, chic readers! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas already this year–and we couldn’t love it any more. I found out today that there is less time than usual between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I absolutely had to get on my holiday shopping stat. (Plus, all the music and movies and twinkle lights have begun and are getting to me!)
One of our favorite things is gathering all the family together for Thanksgiving and Christmas and, to that end, we are creating a guest-ready bedroom so our visitors can rest in style.
We are love, love, loving this gorgeous John Robshaw beddingthat is nothing short of guest-perfect. (Okay, let’s be real: It’s us perfect, too, and we’ll be stealing it back stat!) The coverlet is soft to the touch and oh-so-cozy, the comforter inside this duvet is soft, fluffy and gorgeous, and the fabrics are absolutely to-die-for.
As with everything in design, it’s the details that make these textiles not just beautiful but extraordinary. Hand block painting, hand block stitching and the finest down and feathers available set these linens apart and are one of the facets of John Robshaw’s vision for his spectacular brand.
We could barely resist climbing into this bed ourselves once we had made it.
But, well, we couldn’t bear to wrinkle the softest, most luxurious sheets. The detail is simple, elegant and so inviting.
Now we feel like our guest room is ready to go for anyone who wants to join us for the holiday season!
But the great thing about John Robshaw’s Collection is that the colors, patterns, style and variety mean there is the perfect selection for every space. His degree in fine art from Pratt and expertise in block printing are evident in every beautiful item.
They are never fussy, never overdone, but these linens are pure luxury all the way.
The only problem now is that your guests might want to stay a little too long… ‘Tis the season, right?
Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Luscious textiles make the perfect gift!

The Huffington Post said of Slightly South: “Writers come and writers go, but Kristy Woodson Harvey is here to stay. The warmth, wit, and wisdom of this novel pave her way into the exclusive sisterhood of southern writers.” I’d love it if you checked it out!
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.

Now that spring is officially here, we are looking forward to warmer weather, plenty of travel–and, of course, lots of guests!
Living at the beach, it seems that when the weather changes, suddenly everyone wants to come visit. And we can’t think of anything better! Check out a few of our favorite tips for creating a lovely room that your guests will never want to leave!
Invest in cozy bedding. Nothing says “welcome” to your guests like cozy, comfy bedding.
2. If there’s room, add a chair–or two! It’s so nice for guests to have a spot for relaxing right in the privacy or comfort of their own room.
3. Think about their comfort. When it comes to sleep, few things are as important as the mattress! We always suggest sleeping in your own guest room every now and then to see how it would be to be a guest in your home. If the mattress isn’t up to par, it might be time to upgrade. Check this fabulous selection–including the Bedding Mart family bed!
4. Keep it clutter free. A few well-placed accessories are more than enough when it comes to guest rooms. We don’t want to overwhelm our guests with personal mementos and too many accessories.
5. That said, it’s always nice to provide guests with all the essentials they’ll need! A stack of fresh towels, shower essentials and a water pitcher are all nice touches.
6. Include a few favorite reading materials–books, magazines, today’s newspaper–in case guests have a bit of downtime. Bonus points for this fabulous reading nook!
7. If there’s room, there’s nothing we love more than a desk in a guest room. We’re all so connected these days that it’s hard to totally unplug and a desk gives guests a place to sneak in a few minutes of work without any interruptions.
8. Footboards are great, but not every bed has one. When faced with a bed with no footboard, we love the look of a bench at the end of the bed. A chaise or a pair of chairs is also a great complement and gives guests a spot to sit and read, watch TV or simply put on their shoes!
We don’t know about you, but these gorgeous guest rooms have us ready to do a little entertaining of our own! What’s your favorite way to make your guests feel at home?
My latest novel, THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, releases on April 3, right in the thick of Spring Break! And, Southern Living just named it one of its “Best Spring Break Reads.” Hooray! Now is the perfect time to preorder!
Heirloom quality and forever chic, we didn’t think we could love anything more than Leontine Linens. We didn’t think we could love anything more until we saw the founder of Leontine Linen, Jane Scott Hodges‘s, fabulous New Orleans home, that is!
Jane Scott told One Kings Lane that her “theme for this year has been confidence.”
As such, she and her husband decided to buck convention and make this fabulous historic home something that would suit the needs of their family, friends and entertaining lifestyle.
As big fans of breaking the rules, we’d say that they did so the very best way: beautifully and well. This gorgeous green? Case and point.
A boldly modern kitchen with the fun stools to match is perfect for hosting family and friends.
Abstract art and bold fabrics make this space feel fresh and modern. (Don’t miss that fabulous end table!!)
The more subdued spaces also offer plenty of panache.
Aren’t the bunnies terrific? The perfect splash!
If you thought Leontine was only for staid, subdued spaces, think again. With bright colors and choices galore, these heirlooms are great for any space.
Chic, chic, chic, for sure! But would you expect anything less from the founder of the fabulous Leontine? We know we wouldn’t!
