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.

Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support and friendship and book love. I am so grateful for YOU each and every day!

In Good Taste: Les Ensembliers Design

dining room Les Ensembliers

Good morning, lovely Design Chicers! We hope you are staying warm and cozy if you’re one of our friends affected by the storm. 

Palm Beach kitchen Les Ensembliers

The good news is that good taste, like that of Les Ensembliers Design, prevails no matter the weather!

Palm Beach Dining room -Les Ensembliers

These designers utilize classic favorites like black and white flooring and blue and white porcelain, to make homes come to life.

And can create an outdoor oasis every bit as beautiful as its indoor counterpart.

Corsica living room -Les Ensembliers

You know how we love versatility in a designer and this group has mastered that art! 

Corsica bedroom -Les Ensembliers

Light, bright and coolly casual, 

Corsica swimming pool -Les Ensembliers

Their talent really shines in these less traditional spaces as well. We can’t wait for this kind of weather!

ski house bedroom -Les Ensembliers

Everything about this twin bedroom is perfection! This looks like a great place to wait out a storm!

closet -Les Ensembliers

A closet that is beautiful enough to integrate seamlessly into the room? Sign us up! This cozy space makes use of every inch!

blue and white living room -Les Ensembliers

From an ode to classic blue and white…

To the wonderfully abstract, these designers know how to mix and match to make everything fabulous.

But of course! Eclectic, fun and always fresh, we couldn’t be more thrilled with these lovely looks from Les Ensembliers. Are you dreaming of sprucing your space for spring?

There’s no blue and white quite like the water and sky! Hoping your weekend is filled with a little (or a lot) of both!

Speaking of blue and white, if you’re looking for a perfect blue and white read, check out Lies and Other Acts of Love or Dear Carolina or preorder Slightly South of Simple! I’m donating 100% of the profits of my books to Mary’s Kitchen in Kinston, NC until November 1 to help victims of flooding in Eastern NC.


In Good Taste:Leigh Giles

9

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!

7

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!

12

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.

13

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!

19

And, we know that, no matter what else Leigh is doing, she will be choreographing interiors with a touch of tradition, loads of style…

8

And a helping heaping of the fine art that she enjoys employing so much.

1

New York-educated and Atlanta-trained, Leigh’s classic designs caught our eye right off the bat.

11

Blue and white never goes out of style, and a bookcase full feels welcoming and warm.

15

Leigh also tackles the new and modern with particular skill, making spaces feel fresh, open and up to date.

20

Unexpected touches–like lamps on the island!–set this designer’s work apart from the pack.

14

You know we’re huge fans of twin beds in guest rooms. This one feels positively decadent.

5

Full bedskirts and splurge-worthy linens create rooms that feel homey. These guests might want to stay a little too long!

10

This room is perfect for coming home to after a long day.

16

A small settee or loveseat at the end of a bed is one of our favorite touches. 

6

Black and white make a bold porch statement against a lush green backdrop.

4

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?

Blue and White with The Enchanted Home

Oh, oh, oh, how we love having guest posts from our favorite bloggers on Fridays! Aren’t they simply wonderful? Today, you are in for another treat… A musing from our talented, amazing, fabulous, always stylish friend Tina from the The Enchanted Home. We feel a special kinship with Tina because we started our blogs about the same time, and it has been so fun to see what amazing heights hers has risen to at her skilled hand. She is truly a tastemaker, and blue and white is her signature color! Colors? Well, we think when a combination is this timeless it simply must go together. We think our friend Tina would agree! Check out her blue and white here and then go visit her stunning blog and store immediately!

Hi there, so happy to be over at one of my favorite blogs on all things beautiful, Design Chic. Today I am here as a guest to talk about a color or two and it might not be much of a surprise to most of you that I have chosen to talk about my favorite color combination in the entire world…..blue and white🙂

I live eat and breath it and just can’t imagine my life and home without it! 

I love it in my home but it shows itself quite beautifully in some other unexpected ways. It is a classic that will never ever go out of style, a truly timeless color combination that surprisingly works with literally just about every color. So today, is an homage to all things blue and white, how about you? Are you a member of the blue and white fan club? Even if you aren’t you might be after reading this post……

Always have blue and white on my kitchen island filled with some kind of flowering plant, makes me happy to walk into it every morning:)

So does this post have you craving a bit of blue and white of your very own ? Thank you for stopping in and to Kristy and Beth for asking me to come over, always a pleasure to visit their fabulous site and be a part of what is happening in their world. Wishing everyone a wonderful day and end to your week!
