Good morning, chic readers! First things first: Florida, Alabama and Georgia readers, our thoughts and prayers are with you during Hurricane Michael. Please let us know that you are okay!

No doubt about it, it has been a crazy hurricane season.

It may be the first time we’ve ever been ready for fall to fade into winter to get these scary storms behind us.

While the cooler weather puts a bit of a damper on our outdoor activities, a beautiful sunroom like this can make it feel warm and wonderful all year long.

We love curling up with a good book and a great cup of tea and savoring the feeling of the sun coming through the windows, even as the temperatures drop.

Easy-to-open windows and an exposed ceiling give this sunroom a cozy, outdoor porch type feel,

And we think we might love a solarium most of all. Let in the light!

The Secret to southern Charm

If you’re hanging on to summer, make sure to grab a copy of THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM , one of Southern Living‘s best beach reads, to slip in your tote.

More Info about The Secret to Southern Charm

-A 2018 Spring Okra Pick
-USA TODAY Happy Ever After’s Best Women’s Fiction
-Southern Living’s Most Anticipated Beach Reads of 2018
-Deep South Magazine’s Summer Reading List
-Raleigh News & Observer’s “The Best Reads of Summer”
-Charlotte Observer’s “Summer’s Best Books”
-New York Live’s “Ashley’s A-List” Pick

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).

In Good Taste: David Kleinberg Design

It may be snowing all across NC today, but, even still, last weekend was time for a little Spring cleaning!

David Kleinberg Design

A super fun photo shoot with Serena & Lily (stop by tomorrow to see our Spring spruce!) inspired us to clean up, clear out and pare down.

David Kleinberg Design

Needless to say, the house feels lighter, brighter and oh-so-good–and so do we!

The good taste of David Kleinberg makes us feel that exact same way!

David Kleinberg Design

Perfectly accessorized but never overdone, his designs feel calming, refreshing and terrifically uncluttered.

His own Upper East Side apartment (pictured here!) is a study in color, texture and high style.

But whether he’s designing for himself or a client, Kleinberg always leaves his mark.

Kleinberg’s work always speaks for itself–and is the perfect way to get inspired to do a little Spring cleaning of your own! Spring Break will be here before we know it!

Speaking of Spring Break, my latest novel, THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, releases on April 3, right in the thick of Spring Break! And, Southern Living just named it one of its “Best Spring Break Reads.” Hooray! Now is the perfect time to preorder!

We know y’all know our fab friend Jeanne McKay Hartmann. Have you ever seen anything as adorable as these beautiful illustrated cards that she made to go with The Secret to Southern Charm? We know we haven’t! Shoes, champagne and sweet tea… What else does a girl need? For more of her gorgeousness, check follow her on Instagram at @jeannemckayhartmann!
