House Tour: Stunning in Stone

Phoebe Howard Entrance in stone floors

Charlotte House

As you can probably imagine, we can’t get enough of finding new designers to talk about!

But there are some that have a forever place in our hearts, whose work we love to swoon over day after day, year after year, whose new projects we wait impatiently for.

Phoebe Howard is one of those designers.

Her style is understated, traditional enough without looking old-fashioned, modern enough without looking trendy… It is, in short, the epitome of classic southern style for the new millennium.

Even in the simplest rooms, there is a richness about Howard’s style, a sense of luxury that permeates, especially where textiles are concerned.

Her perfectly chosen color palettes draw you in, adding the right amount of warmth and interest while creating a feeling of continuity.

Each nook in the home is well thought out, the perfect mix of form and function that is simply elegant.

“One of the hottest new Southern writers.” —Parade

From the next “major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author) comes the first in an all-new series chronicling the journeys of three sisters and their mother—and a secret from their past that has the potential to tear them apart and reshape their very definition of what it means to be a family.

Caroline Murphy swore she’d never set foot back in the small Southern town of Peachtree Bluff; she was a New York girl born and bred and the worst day of her life was when, in the wake of her father’s death, her mother selfishly forced her to move—during her senior year of high school, no less—back to that hick-infested rat trap where she’d spent her childhood summers. But now that her marriage to a New York high society heir has fallen apart in a very public, very embarrassing fashion, a pregnant Caroline decides to escape the gossipmongers with her nine-year-old daughter and head home to her mother, Ansley.

Ansley has always put her three daughters first, especially when she found out that her late husband, despite what he had always promised, left her with next to nothing. Now the proud owner of a charming waterfront design business and finally standing on her own two feet, Ansley welcomes Caroline and her brood back with open arms. But when her second daughter Sloane, whose military husband is overseas, and youngest daughter and successful actress Emerson join the fray, Ansley begins to feel like the piece of herself she had finally found might be slipping from her grasp. Even more discomfiting, when someone from her past reappears in Ansley’s life, the secret she’s harbored from her daughters their entire lives might finally be forced into the open.

Exploring the powerful bonds between sisters and mothers and daughters, this engaging novel is filled with Southern charm, emotional drama, and plenty of heart.

The Architecture of Mark Finlay

Mark Finlay White House with double front porches

Some people have a way with words.

Some people have a way with wood.

In his book Country Houses, Mark Finlay proves he has a way with both.

The country house is a bit of a dream for most of us. A quiet spot, away from it all, where we can relax, rest, recharge and come back home feeling revived and renewed. 

 entrance with wood beams

There are gardens, sure. Horses, of course. 

entrance with chandelier

But that’s just the beginning. Because the quintessential dream country house is as spectacular inside as it is outside.

A pinch of old world charm, a dash of clean modernity and a hint of something rustic combine to make the penultimate country house.

Finlay takes his country homes to the next level with enviable architectural details at every turn.

Bright light and warm sunshine beckon you outside,

While a mudroom with space for it all greets you with organization and simplicity on the way back in.

What’s better than the house? Quite possibly the stable, of course.
