Blue and white is a favorite combination–especially by the water!
A bold blue on a patio feels bright, fun and entertaining ready.
If it’s the backsplash for a completely unique outdoor kitchen, all the better!
But, of course, no one does blue and white quite like Mother Nature. Wherever you are today, wishing you blue and white skies–and, if you’re really, really lucky, blue water too!
I’m in beautiful Litchfield Beach, SC today speaking at the Litchfield Books Moveable Feast Literary Luncheon–one of my favorite events–and then speaking to the Federation of South Carolina Women’s Clubs tonight.

If you’re in the area, join us! Happy weekend!

This canopy bed is so elegant. This bedroom feels like a getaway!
This gallery wall proves that it’s completely possible to do coastal without getting kitschy.
On vacation or just an ordinary day, this tub would feel like a vacation any time!
Because bathroom storage is always at a premium, we’re loving how these baskets not only take advantage of extra space but also add texture.
A settee at the end of a bed is so sweet. And there’s enough seating to have a party in this room!
Florida should be fun! And this porch knows it. The blue and white tiles add a touch of whimsy.
A pretty pool and lush landscaping lend a view worth coming back to.
From the kitchen to the bedrooms to the patio, blue and white porcelain is a unifying theme of this beautiful Naples getaway. If this beautiful coastal getaway doesn’t have you Spring dreaming, we don’t know what would! Where’s your favorite spring vacation spot?

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys. Kristy Woodson Harvey creates four women who are at once completely different yet utterly the same–and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Cassandra King, bestselling author of TheSame Sweet Girls
Also, if you want to know a little more about my new novel, (Simon & Schuster, April 25, 2017) take a peek at the video below! (It’s only like 90 seconds. No major commitments here!)
It’s hard to believe but school is over in THREE DAYS! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Because out-of-school-time means it’s beach time!
I used to be the girl who changed bathing suits eleven times a day (that’s not an exaggeration) because she couldn’t stand the sand, so I’m not sure when exactly I started to love it so much. But, however it happened, all we know is that we’re ready for summer to start in earnest!
While we are packing our bags and heading to North Carolina’s coast, Leigh Giles, fabulous designer and fellow Tarheel, will be packing her bags and leaving her Virginia home to head to one of our favorite spots in North Carolina’s mountains: Blowing Rock.
While we’re baking in the sun, she’ll be nice and cool. We might have to go say hi to her when we need a break from the heat!
And, we know that, no matter what else Leigh is doing, she will be choreographing interiors with a touch of tradition, loads of style…
And a helping heaping of the fine art that she enjoys employing so much.
New York-educated and Atlanta-trained, Leigh’s classic designs caught our eye right off the bat.
Blue and white never goes out of style, and a bookcase full feels welcoming and warm.
Leigh also tackles the new and modern with particular skill, making spaces feel fresh, open and up to date.
Unexpected touches–like lamps on the island!–set this designer’s work apart from the pack.
You know we’re huge fans of twin beds in guest rooms. This one feels positively decadent.
Full bedskirts and splurge-worthy linens create rooms that feel homey. These guests might want to stay a little too long!
This room is perfect for coming home to after a long day.
A small settee or loveseat at the end of a bed is one of our favorite touches.
Black and white make a bold porch statement against a lush green backdrop.
This pool house is the kind of place that could make us ditch our beach plans and stay home all summer long! Are you getting ready for summer? Do you have any fun plans?
If you’ve followed us for a while, you know we are in complete awe of designers whose work really runs the gamut. Sure, picking a certain style and sticking with it has its charms, but we’re always amazed by those designers that can achieve a wide variety of looks for different homes–and homeowners.
