If you haven’t read my novel Feels Like Falling, I would love for you to check it out!

 

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.

House Tour: Charming Mountain Cabin

Greg Busch and Meridy King cabin

 

When the temps start to drop, the days get shorter and the leaves begin to change, we immediately want to escape to a charming cabin

If you’re like us, you’re still limiting your travel for now.

But, lucky for us, Greg Busch and Meridy King and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles are letting us share this absolutely pitch-perfect cabin that is the ultimate place to while away a few fall days by the fire.

For the epitome of cabin style, rustic wood paneling is an absolute must–and these designers have absolutely nailed it, even in the kitchen.

Elegant yet outdoorsy finishes create a seamless transition from the indoors to the lovely porches,

And wood beams and a stone fireplace lend that mountain feel in droves.

Every vignette is thoughtfully designed to capture the feel of the beauty outside the door,

And practically made for a good night’s sleep and capturing a stunning view to wake up to.

We are huge fans of having guests, and these lovely guest rooms are the perfect place to house plenty of them–

And a sophisticated bunk room is great for welcoming friends of any age.

Even the bathroom details are teeming with mountain style.

Simple accessories create showstopping moments,

As each room flows seamlessly into the next.

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

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 evangelical 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 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 busted 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 the one that got away comes back, 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, wittiest, and 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.

House Tour: Jute Interiors

Jute Interiors curb appeal

 

It happens every, single year, without fail. Fall comes, the temperature drops, and we start feeling like we need a farm. Preferably with a bonfire.

 

Jute Interiors entry with pendant lights

 

Nothing permanent. Just a small getaway, perfectly appointed. 

 

jute Interiors entry with wood bench and steel doors

 

This home from Jute Interiors is basically out of our imagination, that fall, farm, weekend getaway come to life. 

 

Jute Interiors bench

 

This is the kind of place where not a single detail is overlooked, from the walls to the furniture to everything in between. 

 

Jute Interiors dining room with beams

 

It is also the kind of place where things are simple. And an open floor plan means that living leads to…

 

Jute Interiors dining room with wood beams

 

Dining, preferably for friends and family,

 

dinner arty

 

At the ideal rustic table where the outside comes in, the simple becomes impossibly chic and the kind of place is set where we would want to be guests. 

 

porch and patio

 

Speaking of places we want to become guests… A lovely pool with equally gorgeous loungers and that farm we’re craving!

 

covered porch

 

A stunning pavilion with plenty of eating and entertaining space.

And that bonfire that we absolutely must have when it comes to fall! Do you love this Jute Interiors home as much as we do?

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