10 Favorite: Cottages with Charm & Style

shingled cottages
Dearborn Builders

Some people dream of growing up and living in a huge, sprawling mansion, with cavernous rooms and tons of space. 

But others–like us–are partial to a simple cottage by the sea.

And a little bit of age and history makes it all the better.

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

House Tour: Cottage on Lake Keowee

Lake Keowee entrance

There’s no doubt about it: Fall is in the air. It’s still 85 degrees here on the Carolina coast, but there’s something about the air here that starts to get a little clearer that makes us know it will be here soon. The pumpkins everywhere don’t hurt either!

Lake Keowee entrance

So, sure, houses are made for all seasons, but this fabulous Lake Keowee Cottage, designed by Architect Timothy S. Adams and Westbrook Interiors in this month’s Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles,  just feels like fall to us. 

Lake Keowee living room

This is the kind of fireplace that is made for crackling logs on crisp fall nights and freezing December days. 

Lake Keowee living room

And the room around it begs to be curled up in!

Lake Keowee dining room

With Halloween parties and Thanksgiving dinner and all the wonderful occasions that Fall brings, this dining room is the perfect blend of comfortable sophistication that feels festive but never fussy. 

Lake Keowee kitchen

And a place to prepare all those wonderful holiday meals?

Lake Keowee kitchen

No problem!

Lake Keowee kitchen

And, of course, a celebration is in order!

Lake Keowee lake

Fall is our favorite time to be outdoors (Okay, okay… We’re sure we say that about summer and spring too…) and this spectacular setting is ideal for a hike or a paddle or a row. 

Lake Keowee house and garden

And there’s something about stone and wood that makes us think of the change of seasons, of cooler temperatures and turning leaves. 

Lake Keowee house and garden

There’s nothing not to love about this Lake Keowee Cottage any season of the year! 

Have you begun preparing your home for Fall? 

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love seeing you here!
