From full design-and-build projects to remodels, self-taught architectural and interior designer Katie Hackworth uses a trained eye and a background (and degree) in graphic design to create bold, bright spaces perfect for every member of the family–even the dog!
“Authentic design, quality craftsmanship, and concise approach” are hallmarks of this designer’s signature style, and each space she designs bears her mark.
A mix of materials in a kitchen creates a warm and inviting space,
While unexpected colors ground it and lend a sense of history.
Hackworth’s attention to detail is one of the things she is known for. In this charming kitchen, the details are everything.
We love the mix of metals in this space–and the practical components of this working kitchen are just as chic as the decorative ones.
Happy Thursday, friends! We can’t believe it’s almost the weekend already.
We love the simple, chic look of this oversized subway tile,
And, complete with dark grout, this tile makes for a very stylish shower.
Dark colors add a new dimension.
Sleek in silver,
Or brilliant in brass, the right hardware is the perfect accent for these simple tiles with big personality.
This marble subway tile is positively swoon worthy! It’s a luxe take on a trend we love.
But who says subway tile should just be limited to the shower? Subway tile in this entire bathroom makes such a statement.
Forget going to the groomer. Subway tile is even the perfect material for a dog shower! Now this is a pampered pooch!

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.
With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.
Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.
When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.
With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).
