December 13:

Good holiday season morning, readers! What kind of shopper are you? Are you a tunnel-visioned, perfect-present-for-the-perfect-person kind of shopper? Or are you more of a one-for-them, one-for-me kind. Since I fall distinctly in the category of the latter, I decided that it would be so fun to get a little something for yourself and receive a little something for a friend!

Giveaway Details:

This week, we’re doing a get one, give one, giveaway. All you have to do to enter and get your free book is:

  • Preorder my forthcoming FEELS LIKE FALLING on the day of the giveaway.
  • Email me your receipt and your address at [email protected]
  • If we are getting close to running out of a certain book I’ll let you know via Facebook.

 

Day 4, December 13: Preorder Feels Like Falling on DECEMBER 13 and receive a signed advance copy of either Dear Carolina or Lies and Other Acts of Love while supplies last. (They have plain orange covers but they read the same!) Please note I am very low on Dear Carolina, so if you want that one, act fast!

December 14:

Day 5, December 14: EVERYONE who has preordered Feels Like Falling at any time (I have a spreadsheet!) will be entered to win a Tello & Rose bag full of books including a signed copy of Meet Me in Monaco by Heather Webb and Hazel Gaynor, a signed advance copy of Tell Me a Story by Cassandra King Conroy, a signed copy of Did You Ever Have a Family? and many, many more!

House Tour: Harrison Design

When editor-in-chief of Veranda Steele Marcoux, interior designer Bunny Williams, and Robert A.M. Stern Architect Roger Seifter speak, we listen.

So when this esteemed panel of judges named Karen Ferguson, director of interior design for Harrison Design, the 2019 Southeast Residential Designer of the Year, we were so excited to shout her news from the rooftops!

This stunning Atlanta home was instrumental in earning Ferguson her latest accolade.

Fresh and engaging, this home’s interior leans on tradition while taking bold steps toward the future.

Bunny Williams said, “The detailing of the kitchen and bathroom were perfection.”

We couldn’t agree more!

A soothing color palette transforms a master bedroom into a tranquil retreat.

Rich walnut floors and an oversized Louis XV mirror create continuity between the master bathroom and bedroom.

Large slabs of Carrara marble mixed with intricate palisandro bluette detailing complement the Roman motifs in the his and hers shower.

Williams also noted Ferguson’s “ability to handle both a modern sensibility and more traditional vibe with a clear sense of proportion and scale.” To us, this is one of the most difficult acheivements in design, simply because it’s easiest to master the style that is your favorite.

Mixing styles and bouncing back and forth between them can prove challenging for even the most skilled designers. But, as this home proves, not for Harrison. We can’t wait to see what the Southeast Residential Designer of the Year does next!

 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

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).

Things We Love: Boxwood Gardens

Hollander Design

With the days growing longer and the sun getting warmer, we are savoring every moment we have outside–especially after such a cold, harsh winter. We don’t know about you, but we’re focusing on sprucing our yards for spring right now. We love flowers and bright blooms and pretty colors intermixed, but when it comes to the staple backdrop, nothing is better than beautiful boxwoods. From a small hedge to an entire garden, boxwoods are incredibly versatile and look great anywhere. Check out a few of our favorite boxwood gardens and gain a bit of inspiration of your own!

The former garden of our friend Loi Thai is a great one to end on and one of our favorites of the entire bunch. Perfectly manicured and vibrantly green, it’s everything a boxwood garden should be!
