MORE ABOUT FEELS LIKE FALLING:
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.

Preparing for the Holidays

holidays shopping with Serena & Lily round table in entry

 

Are you ready to get started with holiday preparations–a little early? We know we are!

 

 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily entry with round table and round chandelier

 

 

We love picking out the perfect gifts for the people we love–especially when they’re holiday decor gifts–and we’ll be shopping while the turkey cooks. (Although we’re thinking the shopping will take significantly less time.). 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily living room with sectional sofa

 

 
Throws and trays always top our list of great gifts for those friends that are just impossible to buy for, and when it comes to the intersection of quality, style and uniqueness, these are some of our very favorite. 


 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily chaises lounge in living room

 

We have filled our homes with Serena & Lily throw pillows and love the comfort and the incredible quality. Fluffy, full inserts (Go a size bigger than the pillow for that extra fluff!) and darling details add that little something extra that we’re always looking for.

 


 

 

riviera stools with Serena & Lily at the holidays
Riviera Stools

 

We have these Riviera Stools, but, if we didn’t, rest assured, they would be on our wishlist! They completely changed the look of our kitchen and are comfortable to sit in to boot!

 


 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily bedroom with custom headboard

 

Chic new bedding and gorgeous, luxurious rugs are perfect for giving your home that special holiday spruce,


 

 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily bedroom with gallery wall and bench at foot of bed

 

Just like we did in our guest room, pictured here, last year! Serena & Lily bedding is nothing short of luxurious–and this bench is a forever favorite!

 


 

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily nursery

 

No one does gifts for the nursery better than Serena & Lily.

 


 

hanging swing in playroom

 

And, we have to say, we couldn’t love this swing (And pillows! And basket! And floor pillow! And throw!) any more in our playroom. A hanging swing made a difficult-to-decorate attic slant easy and whimsical, perfect for kids and adults alike. Baskets make great favorite, functional gifts for friends, especially if getting organized this year is on the top of their New Year’s Resolution list. 

 


 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily playroom with chaise lounge and bamboo shades

 

Speaking of whimsy… This chaise room/kids’ art space off our kitchen got the perfect finishing touch from a beautiful pair of throws. They’re so cozy to reach for on chilly days and pretty all the time. The details are truly exceptional. 

 


 

bathroom with bamboo shades and bamboo stool from Serena & Lily at the holidays

 

A cute hamper and a darling teak step-stool added the right amount of pizazz to our kids’ bathroom–and that perfect amount of coastal feel in a home by the shore. We love a little bit of a beachy feel no matter where we are. And Serena & Lily, clearly one of our favorite partners in design, does it better than all the rest.

peachtree bluff series - Kristy Woodson Harvey

Resolving to read more in 2019? Pick up your copy of Slightly South of Simple, the first novel in my Peachtree Bluff series, Book 2,  The Secret to Southern Charm, and Book 3, The Southern Side of Paradise releasing, May 7!  I’m so grateful for the support of my readers!

 

Also, don’t forget… 

Preorder my new novel THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE, Book 3 in the Peachtree Bluff Series and be Automatically Entered in the Peachtree Bluff Takeover Giveaway!

THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE is available for pre-order now from your local bookstore, IndieboundAmazon and Barnes & Noble (Only in hardback and paperback so far. E-books to come!).

June 1, 2019 Peachtree Bluff will be “taking over” Beaufort, NC, the town on which it was based. Every single person who preorders between now now and will be registered to win:

*Two tickets to the Peachtree Bluff Town Takeover and Tour–on Beaufort’s signature double decker red buses!

*Two tickets to the farm-to-table dinner and launch party under the stars at the Beaufort Historic Site

*Two nights lodging in Beaufort, NC

Just send an email with proof of purchase to kristywoodsonharvey@gmail.com to enter!

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).

House Tour: Cloth and Kind

 

Good morning, chic readers! Are you in full-on Thanksgiving hysteria yet? We are getting so excited, and, okay, truth time: We pulled out the Christmas playlist on Amazon Music today. (If you haven’t listened to the Train Christmas album, you totally should!) So, yeah, it will be 71 degrees tomorrow, and the turkey hasn’t even been bought yet much less cooked, but what’s the harm in breaking our no-Christmas-music-until-after-Thanksgiving rule? It’s not like we’ve already bought the tree

 

While you’re putting the finishing touches on your Thanksgiving grocery list, check out this fabulous house tour from the beyond amazing Cloth and Kind. It’s the perfect home, holiday or not!

 

Built-in bookcases are one of our favorite features in any home. The addition of the brass library lamps takes the look over the top!

 

A blue island is the perfect pop in an otherwise white kitchen. It adds so much dimension. 

 

A teeny vignette becomes a focal point with the addition of this beautiful rug and distressed piece of furniture.

 

There’s nothing better than starting and finishing the day in the sunniest spot in the house!

 

We love hot pink in any space…

 

And beautiful blues too, of course. 

 

There’s no space we love more than a window seat, especially when the weather gets cooler and we draw closer to home. 

 

Double sinks provide plenty of space for getting ready…

 

And a soaking tub creates a spa-like retreat. 

 

Just add a Turkish towel!

 

A playful child’s room is such a delight,

 

And a darling basin sink creates plenty of space for multiple kids to get ready for school.

 

Isn’t it amazing? We love Cloth and Kind’s use of color, pattern and texture–even on the porch.
