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).

Ready for Christmas in Beautiful Buckhead

 living room Christmas

Are you holiday ready? Suzanne Kasler’s Buckhead home certainly is! And we feel like we’re getting there…

Christmas mantel

The mantels are decorated and the pilot lights are lit in preparation for Christmas Eve fires. (No wood-burning fireplaces here, sadly enough.)

Christmas sofa

We have decorated our trees and oohed and aahed over each ornament–and the memories that go with it. From the Christopher Radko wedding gifts to the Simon Pearce balls that mark the passing of each year to the handmade treasures from each year of school, every ornament has a special meaning.

Christmas dining room

And the crystal is washed and the silver is polished in preparation for days of celebration. 

Christmas gifts

The presents are mostly wrapped and underneath the tree. From scooters and laser tag to iPhone 8s and iPads, Carolina blue cashmere to our favorites of all, sparkly things in small, small boxes, they are ready and waiting for Santa’s arrival!

Christmas living room

We think we’ll take a note from Suzanne Kasler and keep the flowers simple this year. There is nothing more beautiful–or more Christmas-y–than fresh greenery and bright berries. 

Christmas living room

The best part of the holidays comes after the presents have been opened and the turkey has been eaten, after the carols have been sung and the PJs are on, when everyone sits around the fire sipping cocktails or hot chocolate to reflect on another year well spent. 

Christmas dining room

To remember where each has come from and plan for what will be better in the year ahead. 

Christmas entrance

It is these small, simple things, the wreaths on the front doors, the silver sugar dishes full of candy canes, that set the stage for a magical holiday season with family and friends, that is full of good cheer and maybe, if you’re really lucky, even a little rest. 

Christmas porch

As Suzanne Kasler beautifully portrays, with a few snips from the great outdoors, the stage is set for a memorable holiday season. Are you ready for the holidays?

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

Last week we had the pleasure of spending a fun-filled long weekend in the place that we think gets as close to Christmas magic as you can without going to the North Pole: NYC! I had the most amazing  day of meetings with the team at Gallery Books (Simon & Schuster),  about all that is THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, the sequel to SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE and the second book in Peachtree Bluff series–and filmed fun videos that I can’t wait to share with you! To celebrate the upcoming launch (April 3, 2018!) and get you in the holiday spirit, we’re giving away a $100 Amazon gift card for your holiday essentials. Enter below!
