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. 

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 evangelical 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 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 busted 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 the one that got away comes back, 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, 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.

The place we go to unwind, relax, our sanctuary from the real world . . . The importance of the last room we see at night and the first room we see in the morning absolutely can’t be overstated.

Under the Southern Sky

 

I am so excited to announce my seventh novel, UNDER THE SOUTHERN SKY, which releases April 20, 2021. The official cover reveal is coming September 23! 

 

More About Under the Southern Sky:

Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist and a recent divorcée, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.

Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.

Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Buxton Beach. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.

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!
