My seventh novel, UNDER THE SOUTHERN SKY, releases April 20!

“I’ve always been a Kristy Woodson Harvey fan, but she has taken things to a whole new level with Under the Southern Sky, her best novel yet. I laughed, sobbed, and gasped at the story’s clever twists and turns; I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough to see how Amelia’s and Parker’s story turned out. You’ll need plenty of tissues—and maybe some of Cape Carolina’s beloved bourbon-spiked sweet tea—to make it to the end. Deliciously plotted, intricately constructed, gorgeously written, and brimming with hope, Under the Southern Sky will steal your heart and make you think about first loves, second chances, and the unforeseeable twists of fate that guide us all.”Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names

It’s never too early to preorder! UNDER THE SOUTHERN SKY is available from your local independent bookstore,, Amazon, Target, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million and everywhere books are sold!





10 Favorite Andrew J. Howard Laundry Rooms/Mudrooms

With only four days until Christmas, we think now is the time to savor some of our favorite things.

Among them? Anything–and we do mean anything–by Andrew J. Howard Interior Design.

Laundry rooms and mudrooms in many homes can become forgotten spaces.

But, in Howard’s capable hands, they become experiences,

Spaces that blend as seamlessly–and importantly–with the rest of a home’s decor as the living or dining room.

Pretty color palettes and vivid patterns create spaces that feel special,

That make storage and laundry main events.

And, in some cases, are so charming they become multi-purpose office areas as well.

We don’t know about you, but we’re hoping Santa brings us a sunny yellow laundry room just like this!

Or, really, any Andrew Howard-designed space for that matter! What about you? 


Still making your list and checking it twice? We’ve got you covered…






















































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 extremist 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, Diana Harrington, 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 worn-out 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 her first love returns, 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, 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.





Things We Love: Humphrey Munson for Every Room


We have the best news! You know we are big, huge fans of Humphrey Munson Handmade Kitchens. (I mean… the built-in kennels? Too cute!)



And while they have always been a go-to for fabulous kitchen organization and inspiration, Humphrey Munson isn’t just for the heart of the home!



Mudrooms with panache,



Laundry rooms with style,



And butler’s pantries with staying power



Are all a part of Humphrey Munson‘s chicly stylish storage.



Back door drop stations for keeping everything in its place,



Pantries that make it easy to stay organized,



And beautifully designed and implemented storage that keeps essentials squarely within view,



Become essential parts of a home’s overall style, design scheme and chic look. We can’t get enough of Humphrey Munson in any room in the house!

In Good Taste: Jenkins Interiors


If you’ve been around Design Chic for any length of time, you know we’re big fans of Jenkins Interiors



They are absolute experts at creating clean yet cozy spaces,



That blend the right amount of traditional feel with perfect pops of color and whimsy.



From a staid vignette,



To a charming and lighthearted living room,



A colorful sitting space,



To a breathtaking butler’s pantry, these versatile designers leave their mark on every space they touch.



Talk about the perfect details! These curtains are so lovely!



A bedroom becomes an experience with Jenkins Interiors.



Case in point: We can’t think of anything much chicer than a lucite canopy bed. We’re having major envy over this one!



Jenkins Interiors never forgets about the kids, either! From a sweet nursery,



To a darling bunk room, the youngest members of the family’s spaces are well designed!



Swoonworthy closets



Pinterest-worthy baths



There’s nothing that Jenkins Interiors can’t do simply perfectly–which is why we think their work is always in good taste!

In Good Taste: Humphrey Munson Handmade Kitchens


Pasta. Pottery. Presents.



Everything is better when it’s handmade. 



Including the most important–and often most used–room in the house. 



The kitchen, of course. 



These Humphrey Munson kitchens take “custom” to the next level, employing only the finest hard woods, natural stones and high end appliances in their stunning spaces. And it goes without saying that every member of the team is masterful.



The result? A truly bespoke kitchen that focuses on meeting every single need, from storage with style and stability, 



To a practical and beautiful pantry where everything is right at eye level. 



Food storage has never ever looked this good. 



From butler’s pantries that wow, 



To china storage that keeps everything right where you can see it,



Every facet of the Humphrey Munson experience is well thought out and fabulously functional. (Ladders are one of our favorite accessories!)



Beautiful mudrooms where everything has a place might very well be one of the foundations for a neat and tidy kitchen–and entire house, really.



And each ounce of cabinetry and woodwork–whether it’s in the light and bright of the kitchen or dark of the back hallway, is utter perfection. Do you love these handmade spaces as much as we do?
