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).

Island Hopping: Amanda Lindroth Design

Island Hopping: Amanda Lindroth Design,Tria Giovan Photography

 

After two weeks of Hurricane Florence and her aftermath and heading into week three of no school, we don’t know about you, but we’re ready for a little Island Hopping!

And there is no one–and we do mean no one–who we would rather island hop with than the fabulous Amanda Lindroth

Fortunately we can all island hop with Lindtroth–sans airfare and expensive hotel rooms–with her gorgeous new coffee table book!

From unique interiors like these awesome trees, 

To out-of-this-world outdoor spaces

Classic island chic, 

To poolside spaces so dreamy one would never want to leave them behind, 

Each colorful page is more luscious and gorgeous than the last. 

For a magical vacation to an uber-chic home without even leaving your couch,

Make sure to pick up your copy of Island Hopping, available for preorder now and officially on sale wherever books are sold TOMORROW!

The cover, with its fabulous textured, rattan cover, is almost as amazing as what’s inside. It’s a must-have for any coffee table and will be even more necessary during the upcoming cold winter months! 

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love seeing you here!

House Tour: Historical Concepts

House Tour: Historical Concepts

Trust us, there’s nothing we love better than an old house. (We have the houses to prove it.) But, well, historical homes come with their fair share of, let’s say, issues.

So we love the idea of the new old house. You know the kind. It looks like an old house, but is built brand new, i.e., you probably won’t have to have a handyman on payroll.

That look can be very, very tricky to achieve, as adding that character isn’t something just anyone can pull off.

But we think Historical Concepts does the old new house better than pretty much anyone in the business, building new houses that ooze old world charm.

It is the little things that turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, like these beautiful blue doors. 

And unexpected elements–like this unique ceiling–set this kitchen apart from the pack. 

Beautiful windows with lots of light and a marble farmhouse sink make a stunning statement. 

Talk about a dream pantry! Wow! And we couldn’t love this library ladder any more. 

This wood paneling adds so much charm to an other basic stairwell.

And a barrel ceiling makes this hallway an experience. 

Bold navy blue trim adds an instant nautical feel–and these beds are so chic!

Every space feels like an occasion with Historical Concepts. 

But–no surprises here–we think we might love the outdoor spaces most of all!

What is your favorite way to make a new house feel old? 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by!
