Refresh Your Guest Room for the Holidays

bedroom refresh with Serena & Lily

 

Before

 

Man, oh man, do we ever love a good before and after. And when it’s our own house, all the better! When we bought our house in Beaufort, our main goal was to keep things simple, clean and streamlined, so we could walk in and feel spacious and spa-like. But, well, let’s just say that, in this bedroom, maybe we took that a little too far!

After

 

The guest room is a fairly decent size, and a headboard just never felt like it took up enough space. Even when we eventually put a bench at the end of the bed, it just felt too light. When we saw this Whitaker Sun-Bleached Pine 4-Poster Bed, we knew it was the answer, that we could maintain that light and airy feeling while lending the room a sense of gravitas.

The color is absolutely exquisite–and the quality is even better than we anticipated. (And we had high hopes.) This is a heavy, sturdy, incredibly well constructed piece of furniture, truly heirloom quality.

And the color blends so beautifully with our favorite Shore Bench. We love the contrast between the textures here. The whole vibe comes off as coastal without being kitschy. And these pillows and throw are a gorgeous finishing touch–as is that stunning Serena & Lily duvet.

Y’all, we hate to play favorites, but if we could have these artichoke lamps (similar here) in every single room in our house, we totally would. They are so whimsical and fun, true statement pieces that can’t help but draw the eye.

 

 

We’re in love with these Venice Rattan Chairs. They are deep enough to be comfortable without being bulky and the open weave lends that light and airy feel we’re looking to achieve while still being substantial and high quality. Add a neutral pillow, made of the most luxurious linen, for a finished feel.

 

 

Plus, with colder weather coming, this throw is a must-have. (And, don’t forget, my eighth novel, CHRISTMAS IN PEACHTREE BLUFF, releases in 2 weeks on October 26!! SIGNED COPIES are available from Oxford Exchange, and it will be on shelves wherever books are sold!) And this week, Target has a special preorder of buy 2 get 1 free!  Get 1 for yourself and 2 for gifting! What could be better?!

Thrilled for the Christmas in Peachtree Bluff Trailer

 

The fourth book in my bestselling Peachtree Bluff Series is releasing October 26 but is available NOW for preorder from your bookseller of choice! 

In the newest installment of New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey’s Peachtree Bluff series, three generations of the Murphy women must come together when a hurricane threatens to destroy their hometown—and the holiday season in the process.

When the Murphy women are in trouble, they always know they can turn to their mother Ansley. So when eldest daughter Caroline and her husband James announce they are divorcing—and fifteen-year-old daughter Vivi acts out in response—Caroline, at her wits end, can’t think of anything to do besides leave her with Ansley in Peachtree Bluff for the holidays. After all, how much trouble can one teenager get into on a tiny island?

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

As the “storm of the century” heads toward Peachtree Bluff, Ansley and her husband Jack, with Vivi in tow, are grateful they’re planning to leave for the trip of a lifetime. But Vivi’s recklessness forces the trio to shelter in place during the worst hurricane Peachtree has ever seen. With no power, no provisions, and the water rising, the circumstances become dire very quickly…and the Murphy sisters, who evacuated to New York, soon realize it’s up to them to conduct a rescue mission. With the bridges closed and no way to access Peachtree Bluff by land or air, they set sail on Caroline’s boat, The Starlite Sisters, determined to rebuild their beloved town—as well as their family.

In “pitch perfect tones” (Publishers Weekly) and written with her signature Southern charm, New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey explores the magic of Christmas, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of family in a tale that reminds us that, no matter the circumstances, home is always where we belong—especially during the holidays.

I am over-the-moon about my first starred review from Publishers Weekly! Can’t wait for all of you to read Under the Southern Sky on April 20! It’s available for preorder now wherever books are sold. 

From PW: Harvey (Feels Like Falling) delivers a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss in this tearjerker…Harvey brings her characters to life, including Greer, whose heartbreaking journal entries reflect on scans of the embryos and imagine the family she and Parker would have. These passages are particularly wrenching, making the book’s happy ending all the more moving. Fans of women’s fiction will devour this. (Apr.)

More About Under the Southern Sky

Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.

Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.

Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Buxton Beach. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.

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.

7 Favorite Soothing Bedroom Retreats

Serena & Lily

 

Good morning, dear friends. We hope you are all safe and well this Monday. 

 

Serena & Lily

 

With everything going on, it seems like we are all going to be spending quite a bit more time at home

 

Serena & Lily

 

For us, that means taking the time to tackle some of those lingering decor projects. 

 

Serena & Lily

 

And attempting to hold second grade at the dining room table. (Thank goodness it isn’t high school! I don’t remember a bit of Calculus…)

 

Serena & Lily

 

With the world spinning out of control–or just slowing down, depending on how you think about it–we thought today would be the perfect time to focus on soothing, gorgeous master retreats. 

 

Because, after all, a good night’s sleep is one of the foundations of wellness.

 

Serena & Lily

 

Water blues always make us feel calm and rested,

 

While plenty of light creates a clean, open space,

 

Serena & Lily

 

And texture and fun patterns add interest.

 

 

And if the master suite happens to have a fabulous view, why, all the better! We feel more relaxed just looking at these lovely, soothing spaces. We hope you feel the same. 

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

If you’re looking for a relaxing quarantine activity, reading is always a great choice! My entire Peachtree Bluff Series is out and available now!

And Feels Like Falling is available for preorder now, so it can be in your hands on April 28!
