House Tour: Breathtaking Brierfield Farm

 

Brierfield Farm the Flower Magazine Showhouse of Editor Margot Shaw

 

Oh, y’all. Grab your coffee, pull up your favorite chair and get comfortable. Brierfield is a home that simply begs to be toured more than once. 

 

Brierfield Farm the Flower Magazine Showhouse of Editor Margot Shaw family room

 

The fabulous retreat of Flower magazine editor-in-chief, Margot Shaw and her husband Gates–on his family farm, no less–Brierfield was a place we knew right away we must share with all of you!

And embracing the simple philosophy of fewer better things,

 

This home is the representation of all we love about this wonderful season. (Sleepovers, anyone?!)

 

 

And, of course, is goes without saying that the editor of Flower magazine’s family farm wouldn’t be complete without a beautiful bloom or a few. And can we talk about how much we adore a Dutch door?

Thrilled for the Christmas in Peachtree BluffTrailer

 

The fourth book in my bestselling Peachtree Bluff Series is releasing October 26 but is available NOW for preorder from your bookseller of choice! 

In the newest installment of New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey’s Peachtree Bluff series, three generations of the Murphy women must come together when a hurricane threatens to destroy their hometown—and the holiday season in the process.

When the Murphy women are in trouble, they always know they can turn to their mother Ansley. So when eldest daughter Caroline and her husband James announce they are divorcing—and fifteen-year-old daughter Vivi acts out in response—Caroline, at her wits end, can’t think of anything to do besides leave her with Ansley in Peachtree Bluff for the holidays. After all, how much trouble can one teenager get into on a tiny island?

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

As the “storm of the century” heads toward Peachtree Bluff, Ansley and her husband Jack, with Vivi in tow, are grateful they’re planning to leave for the trip of a lifetime. But Vivi’s recklessness forces the trio to shelter in place during the worst hurricane Peachtree has ever seen. With no power, no provisions, and the water rising, the circumstances become dire very quickly…and the Murphy sisters, who evacuated to New York, soon realize it’s up to them to conduct a rescue mission. With the bridges closed and no way to access Peachtree Bluff by land or air, they set sail on Caroline’s boat, The Starlite Sisters, determined to rebuild their beloved town—as well as their family.

In “pitch perfect tones” (Publishers Weekly) and written with her signature Southern charm, New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey explores the magic of Christmas, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of family in a tale that reminds us that, no matter the circumstances, home is always where we belong—especially during the holidays.

​Two childhood friends discover that love—and family—can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” (Kristin Harmel, NYT bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names).

Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.

Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.

Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Cape Carolina. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.

House Tour: A Lauren Liess Designed Farmhouse

Lauren Liess living room

 

Yesterday we toured a fabulous country home filled with rustic charm and all the trappings of a traditional farmhouse

 

Lauren Liess living room

 

Today, we’re so excited to share this slightly different twist on country living with a stunning Lauren Liess designed farmhouse.

 

Lauren Liess kitchen

 

Rustic beams and plenty of wood have that classic country feel,

While more modern elements lend an air of laid-back cool.

It’s the perfect juxtaposition!

A modern chair pairs perfectly with a rustic dining table for the ultimate in farmhouse chic,

While plenty of light makes the space feel open and bright.

Every vignette serves a purpose and is brimming with personality,

And a well-curated gallery wall creates that collected feeling that adds a sense of place and history.

If we were going to dream one room into existence, it would, hands-down, be a library

A cozy space just for reading and filled with all our favorite volumes right at arm’s length. But, then again, this home is full of dream spaces…

And spaces for dreaming.

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.
