My seventh novel, UNDER THE SOUTHERN SKY, releases April 20!

“I’ve always been a Kristy Woodson Harvey fan, but she has taken things to a whole new level with Under the Southern Sky, her best novel yet. I laughed, sobbed, and gasped at the story’s clever twists and turns; I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough to see how Amelia’s and Parker’s story turned out. You’ll need plenty of tissues—and maybe some of Cape Carolina’s beloved bourbon-spiked sweet tea—to make it to the end. Deliciously plotted, intricately constructed, gorgeously written, and brimming with hope, Under the Southern Sky will steal your heart and make you think about first loves, second chances, and the unforeseeable twists of fate that guide us all.”Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names

It’s never too early to preorder! UNDER THE SOUTHERN SKY is available from your local independent bookstore, Bookshop.org, Amazon, Target, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million and everywhere books are sold!

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: The Design Atelier

Happy New Year‘s Eve, chic readers! 

 

the Design Atelier living room

 

Choosing a New Year’s Eve home tour is a big responsibility. 

 

the Design Atelier living room

 

It begs the question: What do we want to see more of in 2021? 

 

The Design Atelier wet bar with antique mirror

 

What do we want our lasting impression of the year’s style to be?

 

The Design Atelier with green silk grasscloth

 

Fortunately for us, Melanie Milner of The Design Atelier has created a spectacularly chic space perfect for perusing–and gleaning every last drop of inspiration from 2020.

 

The Design Atelier dining room

 

A beautiful dining room perfect for entertaining is a great place to ring in the New Year–

And luxe layers make it ideal for cozying up on a cold winter’s night. 

 

The Design Atelier kitchen with 3 pendant lights over island

 

We would love to be spending our NYE fireside right here–

 

The Design Atelier kitchen

 

In this perfectly designed kitchen where every element seems to pop. 

 

The Design Atelier living room with desk

 

So, yes, we’re all having Zoom fatigue, for sure. But the lasting takeaway from 2020 is that a well-designed home office never goes out of style.

Neither does a good night’s sleep

Or a relaxing soak in a gorgeous tub!

Light (and board games!) are always on our list of home must-haves,

 

The Design Atelier porch

 

And charming outdoor spaces certainly took center stage in 2020 more than ever. 

 

The Design Atelier curb appeal

 

Top it off with a dream-home exterior, and you have the perfect recipe for the ultimate house. Here’s wishing you a 2021 that’s big on style where all your design dreams come true!
