When it comes to great designers, one of the hallmarks of the very best is something that can be so hard to achieve: range.

Jenny Keenan is one of those rare designers that has it in droves, and is capable of creating spaces that meet any client’s needs. From classic and gorgeous in blue and white,

To that fabulous, always-in-style, British Colonial vibe,

Bright and airy kitchens with touches of antique charm,

To streamlined spaces with bright pops of color.

Need a Memorial Day Read? Check out Nature.Books.And.Coffee’s Review of my Instant USA Today Bestseller, Feels Like Falling:

“Feels Like Falling” by Kristy Woodson Harvey @kristywharvey was a definite 5⭐!!… This story has a dual POV, alternating between Gray and Diana. Gray just lost her mother to cancer!  She is the CEO of her company and recently split from her husband who cheated on her. She goes to spend the summer at the North Carolina shore. Diana who loses her job at the pharmacy has just broke up with her boyfriend, moved out of their shared apartment and planning to just live in her car! Just so happens, Gray has a spare guest house and offers Diana to stay there. These 2 , very different women truly Bond and help each other through the hard times in their life. They learn so much about themselves, and what really matters in life! I loved both characters!! This story was sweet, dealing with love, loss, romance, motherhood, and life!! This truly was a perfect beach read. A very endearing, positive read.

House Tour: Gray’s Guest House

 

Mark Sikes

 

One of our favorite, favorite places in my new book, Feels Like Falling, is Gray, one of the protagonist’s guest house. We imagined a charming blue-and-white, coastal–but never kitschy–space that hit all the high notes of style while still being comfortable. 

 

 

 

And, well, let’s just say this stunning guest house by the one and only Mark D. Sikes was the most perfect inspiration! 

 

 

One of the most important parts of this story is the guilt that Gray feels over causing Diana to lose her job–and offering for her to live in her guest house as a bit of restitution. 

 

   

 

For Diana, who has recently broken up with one in a long line of bad boyfriends and is left with no place to go, the offer is a dream come true, an answered prayer. 

 

 

 

She describes her new digs as “Pinterest-worthy,” and, as you can see, this stunning space fits the bill. (But don’t all of Mark D. Sikes’ homes?)

 

 

 

You never know how many friends you have until you have a beach house… And this is the kind of guest house we’d like to stay in all summer long!

I am so excited for my first ever Publisher’s Weekly Review! Check it out. And, don’t forget, it’s never too early to preorder!

Feels Like Falling Kristy Woodson Harvey. Gallery, $16 trade paper (400p) ISBN 978-1-9821-1770-2 https://www.publishersweekly.com/978-1-9821-1770-2Harvey (The Southern Side of Paradise) serves up a tale of disaster-turned serendipity in the fictional Cape Carolina, N.C. Successful businesswoman Gray Howard begrudgingly promotes her husband to CFO of her marketing company, ClickMarket, only for him to leave her for the assistant she hired for him. Reeling from a painful, cash-draining divorce, she inadvertently causes Diana, a photo developer at a pharmacy, to lose her job by complaining about her work. After learning this, Gray hires Diana to work as a housekeeper. Over time, the women vent about their lives and forge a friendship that heals them both. The story alternates between Gray’s voice and Diana’s, delving into Diana’s past heartaches and lost hope for having a child. In pitch-perfect tones, Harvey creates two Southern women doing their best to deal with everything life throws at them, and her able plotting will keep readers turning the pages. Secondary characters—Gray’s witty assistant, Trey; her new, younger boyfriend, Andrew; and Diana’s fiercely loyal friend group—add charm. Harvey’s optimistic tale just might convince readers that bouncing back can actually land a person in a better place than where they started. Agent: Elisabeth Weed, the Book Group. (Apr.)
