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

There might not be anyone in the world who loves her hometown quite as much as I do. All the amazing people of Salisbury, NC were so supportive and encouraging when I was growing up and continue to be so now. I am so proud and honored that my books, THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM and SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE, were #1 and #3 on Rowan County’s 2018 BESTSELLER LIST. Thank you, thank you to Wendy Persse and everyone at South Main Book Company for handselling my stories all year long—and to all the readers everywhere who allow me to keep doing what I love year after year. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Salisbury and Rowan County! There really is no place like home!

House Tour: Watersound

Happy 2017, wonderful readers! We hope you had a terrific holiday season and are feeling refreshed, rested and ready to tackle a brand new year. We spent most of the day yesterday doing our favorite New Year’s Day activity: organizing!

2016 Kitchen of the Year

Okay. So maybe not our favorite. Maybe our favorite when it’s over and everything looks pretty?

Lies and Other Acts of Love

Speaking of favorites, let’s talk about your favorites. Your favorite Design Chic posts of 2016, that is. These were our most-viewed, most-popular posts of the year.

If there’s ever something you want us to post about, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We love writing about what you want to read. With a new look for Design Chic, a new book coming in April and, of course, a really, really organized pantry, we think 2017 is looking bright. What are you most looking forward to this coming year?

Looking for more 2017 inspiration? I’m chatting with my friends at Your Carolina about how to create a “Life by Design” this year!
