Looking for the perfect weekend read?  I would love it if you would pick up Feels Like Falling!

 

More About Feels Like Falling:

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her extremist husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger, Diana Harrington, fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a worn-out Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn. But when her first love returns, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, 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.

Bedroom Refresh with Serena & Lily

bedroom refresh with Serena & Lily

 

Good morning, chic readers! Almost two years post-Hurricane Florence we are still, slowly but surely, finishing our remodel and getting things photo-ready again. If you’re a Design Chic follower, you probably know how much we absolutely love Serena and Lily. And we can’t wait to show you all the gorgeous S&L products we got to use in this master bedroom refresh. (And there’s one more to come that we’ll show you later in the week!)

We adore this gorgeous natural rattan Lanai Mirror and how it totally changed the look of the room, making it lighter, brighter and adding that perfect touch of coastal feel. It has a slightly aged look that makes it seem to tell a story, just like the house it’s in. We are huge fans of hanging chairs, and just love this one! A Serena & Lily throw and pillow complete the look, with thick, comfortable, quality fabrics that make the bedroom feel homey and cozy.

These gorgeous Venice Rattan chairs are comfortable, beautiful and the perfect size for a tiny nook. We can just imagine having our morning coffee right here. And luscious linen and down pillows add comfort and style.

Did we mention this fabulous hand-braided diamond jute rug? It was the perfect finishing touch over these 117-year-old hardwood floors. Unlike some natural fiber rugs, it is also incredibly soft underfoot!

This stunning nightstand is one of our favorite parts of this bedroom refresh. A gorgeous gray with pretty gold hardware, it not only looks great but also has smooth, easy open drawers with plenty of room for storage.

The bleached off-white shade of this jute rug blends perfectly with the mix of colors in the nightstand. The texture of the woven raffia adds an extra element of style. Five coats of lacquer create a beautiful, chic finish. We love every single element of this bedroom refresh! Keep scrolling for more stunning ways to incorporate Serena & Lily into your home decor, whether you’re on the shore or just want to feel like you are!

7 Favorite Soothing Bedroom Retreats

Serena & Lily

 

Good morning, dear friends. We hope you are all safe and well this Monday. 

 

Serena & Lily

 

With everything going on, it seems like we are all going to be spending quite a bit more time at home

 

Serena & Lily

 

For us, that means taking the time to tackle some of those lingering decor projects. 

 

Serena & Lily

 

And attempting to hold second grade at the dining room table. (Thank goodness it isn’t high school! I don’t remember a bit of Calculus…)

 

Serena & Lily

 

With the world spinning out of control–or just slowing down, depending on how you think about it–we thought today would be the perfect time to focus on soothing, gorgeous master retreats. 

 

Because, after all, a good night’s sleep is one of the foundations of wellness.

 

Serena & Lily

 

Water blues always make us feel calm and rested,

 

While plenty of light creates a clean, open space,

 

Serena & Lily

 

And texture and fun patterns add interest.

 

 

And if the master suite happens to have a fabulous view, why, all the better! We feel more relaxed just looking at these lovely, soothing spaces. We hope you feel the same. 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! We always love seeing you here!

If you’re looking for a relaxing quarantine activity, reading is always a great choice! My entire Peachtree Bluff Series is out and available now!

And Feels Like Falling is available for preorder now, so it can be in your hands on April 28!
