​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.

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. 

 

Greg Busch and Meridy King cabin kitchen

 

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. 

 

Greg Busch and Meridy King cabin kitchen

 

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.

We think this is the perfect place to getaway all fall long. Are you a fan of this stunning mountain retreat?

In Good Taste: Hendricks Churchill House & Interiors

Hendricks Churchill office

We don’t know about you, but we love homes with history, with a sense of time and place and a style all their own. 

Hendricks Churchill entrance

Maybe that’s what first drew us to Hendricks Churchill House & Interiors.

kitchen Hendricks Churchill

These designers’ eye toward preserving the best of the old while incorporating the new is nothing short of fabulous. 

Hendricks Churchill kitchen

Beautiful wide-plank hardwoods make a statement in this kitchen and a stove with an antique feel adds to the charm. 

kitchen

Lower ceilings make this kitchen feel cozy, while pendant lights add a pop of color. 

Hendricks Churchill entrance

Talk about unique art! An old anchor and a coil of rope make for fabulous decor!

Hendricks Churchill hallway

Some architectural details simply make a house. These floors and those unique transoms and windows are the perfect backdrop for a showstopping design. 

Hendricks Churchill bathroom

We love the sense of history that Hendricks Churchill brings to its spaces–even in the bathroom. Antique light fixtures and an antique rug juxtapose with new fixtures for a custom look. 

sunroom

And a sunny porch in a classic color is perfect for the long, lazy summer days ahead.

Hendricks Churchill laundry room

A flower sink is one of our dream home items. Everyone needs a place to cut fresh flowers!

White trim is fine, but this fun aqua adds so much personality!

Hendricks Churchill bedroom

While a more classic color adds old world charm. Do you like a bit of traditional style in your decor? Or are you more modern?

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