Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey Beach house book
 

I am so excited that my new novel Feels Like Falling releases on April 28!

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. 

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.

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).

Savoring Fall with Hello Lovely!

Good morning, chic readers! We are so excited to welcome our friend Michele from Hello Lovely to our corner of the world today. If you love home decor, DIY, lifestyle and interior design (which we know you do!) you must, must go over and check out Michele’s fabulous style. Her blog is an absolute feast for the eyes and we know you will be as taken with her site as we are! Now, without further ado, let’s check out Michele’s tips for making this our best fall ever!

Hello, lovely Design Chic friends! It’s such a pleasure to bring you fall inspiration ideas early in the game!

Like you, I’m a longtime reader and great admirer of Beth and Kristy’s flavor of Design Chic. I especially appreciate their celebration of and reverence for home and family…my favorite things in the whole world.

I’m Michele, a writer/artist/decorator from Chicagoland, and I author the decor blog Hello Lovely. Here in the Midwest, we take our autumns very very seriously, and truth be told, I have only just begun to appreciate all its wonder since I tend to favor the summer sunshine and dread the cold.

But no more! In midlife, I have discovered a fondness for the falling leaves, the crisper air, and fields of pumpkins. In fact, it is technically still summer as I type these words, yet I have already visited the apple orchard several times, purchased vintage decor from fall flea markets, and painted mini pumpkins for our mantel!

If you are also eager to begin savoring the beauty of fall, I hope you will enjoy the following round-up!

8 Lovely Ways to Savor Fall Beauty

1. Walk daily through crunchy fallen leaves.

This is a surefire way to feel at once young and carefree (if only temporarily) again.

2. Read a book in a peaceful corner of a pretty park.

It can feel beyond luxuriant to simply slip away with a book or Ebook and be transported by a story.

(Slightly South of Simple, anyone?)

3. Visit an apple orchard and try a new variety.

I just had my first taste of Early Beauty apples (above) at my favorite orchard in Poplar Grove, IL

4. Think beyond neutrals for your fall garden decor.

A mass of multicolored mums or other autumn flowers is so happy chic!

5. Steal fall decor inspiration from a chic interior.

During our stay at the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris, the sophisticated palette of cognac, bronze, and warm gold in our suite offered an inspiring combination of rich autumnal tones to riff on at home.

6. Sneak away in October for a night at your favorite hotel.

We often forget that even a short time away from the job and homebase may be all we need to re-charge, re-group, or rejuvenate from our work lives which often get hectic closer to the holidays.

7. Spend time with animals outdoors.

Whether your passion is dogs, cats, or horses, make it a priority to enjoy them unplugged and outdoors in the autumnal sunshine.

8. Bake something aromatic that speaks “fall” to you.

I bake bread all year round, but my favorite aroma of fall is an apple crisp bubbling away in the oven! (My recipe for “Boozy Pear-Apple Crisp” can be made with or without the ‘boozy’ and with gluten-free or regular flour.)

Are you excited to begin savoring the season of fall?

Whether you venture out in chic stilettos or hunker down at home…

I wish you all a blissful season, full of rich color and gentle peace.

Decorating the Mantel

Cullman & Kravis

 The focal point of the room, the frame for a fabulous fire, the display place for that perfect artwork… The mantel serves so, so many purposes.

And so, from the living room to the den and everything in between, a fabulous mantel is more than just a slab of wood and should be arranged as such.
