Things We Love: Farmhouse Style Kitchens

Architectural Digest

 

There is something about the change of seasons that always makes us want a change of scenery. As the air gets that first hint of crispness and the humidity starts to fade, we immediately begin dreaming of a little place in the country, maybe in the mountains, maybe on a farm

We imagine gathering fresh eggs and cutting lettuces for salads and sipping mint-infused iced tea in a rocking chair overlooking acres of green.

It’s all so dreamy.

So, no, we don’t have that farmhouse. But that doesn’t mean that our kitchens can’t hold all our farmhouse fantasies.

Beautiful beams, a hint of rustic charm and the sense that everything is better when it doesn’t have to be perfectly in place, help create that farmhouse feel–even if there’s nowhere to house those chickens.

Oh, and a farmhouse sink, of course.

A farmhouse sink is mandatory.

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).
