But that doesn’t mean that we can’t still get out the hot dogs and baked beans and celebrate with our families. (Socially distanced and 10 at a time, of course!)

Need a Memorial Day Read? Check out Nature.Books.And.Coffee’s Review of my Instant USA Today Bestseller, Feels Like Falling:

“Feels Like Falling” by Kristy Woodson Harvey @kristywharvey was a definite 5⭐!!… This story has a dual POV, alternating between Gray and Diana. Gray just lost her mother to cancer!  She is the CEO of her company and recently split from her husband who cheated on her. She goes to spend the summer at the North Carolina shore. Diana who loses her job at the pharmacy has just broke up with her boyfriend, moved out of their shared apartment and planning to just live in her car! Just so happens, Gray has a spare guest house and offers Diana to stay there. These 2 , very different women truly Bond and help each other through the hard times in their life. They learn so much about themselves, and what really matters in life! I loved both characters!! This story was sweet, dealing with love, loss, romance, motherhood, and life!! This truly was a perfect beach read. A very endearing, positive read.

House Tour: The Perfect Blend of Old and New

blend of old and new living room

Lauren DeLoach Interior Design

 

There is nothing like a home that has the feeling of being collected over time, of having a history, a sense of place and belonging, that idea that it has come from somewhere and has something to say.

 

blend of old and new living room

 

At the same time, the ease of a new house is pretty hard to beat. (As people who have spent years redoing their fair share of old homes, we can vouch for this!)

 

blend dining room

 

The best of both worlds is that perfect combination of old and new, a feeling and sense of place with the updates and advantages that a new house can offer.

 

blend of old and new dining room

 

This gorgeous Atlanta home by designer Lauren DeLoach is the right combination of old and new, those touches of history that tell a story and that feeling that everything is fresh.

 

blend of old and new kitchen

 

One of the biggest benefits of new construction is being able to create moments that feel like a family. Like these gorgeous ceilings in the kitchen.

 

blend of old and new bedroom

 

We are all about bedding, and this bedding is absolute perfection! That neck roll is stunning.

 

blend of old and new bathroom

 

Bathrooms are perhaps where we spend the most time agonizing–especially because we’re bath people! This one is a place we’d like to spend a lot of time!

 

porch blend of old and new

 

Outdoor spaces are paramount to the way a home feels and lives.

 

blend of old and new pool

 

And this one, we think it’s safe to say, feels like paradise!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
