Life’s all about moments.
The big and small ones.
The major celebrations and the simple nothings that, in retrospect, are actually everything.
In today’s world, we want to capture it all and share it with the world.
The way the early morning light makes the kitchen look just so,
The exact angle that captures a well-curated art collection,
The particular mix of shadow and dark that dances in a favorite space,
Design by Lori Bruno for Ligne Roset
Or, maybe best of all, the swagger of a beloved pet in her element.
We are constantly in awe of huge talents like photographer Jane Beiles who bring the world to life in a way that is positively mesmerizing,
Who can turn a simple pair of boots by the back door into a piece of art worthy of a frame and a spot above the fireplace.
Architects and designers can create masterpieces, bring them to life one step at a time, But without those who capture them in their best light, they can’t truly be experienced in the way they were meant to by those who will never see them in person.Truly beautiful photography doesn’t just capture an image. It evokes an emotion. And we think you’ll agree that Jane Beiles’s work does just that.
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We love it when you stop by!

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).
