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: A Stylish New York Apartment

stylish living room in Upper East New York Apartment by Crystal Sinclair

 

Good morning, chic readers! Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving

 

stylish kitchen counter in Upper East New York Apartment by Crystal Sinclair

 

The holidays are certainly looking different this year for a lot of us in a lot of ways! One of the things we’re missing?

 

stylish kitchen in Upper East New York Apartment by Crystal Sinclair

 

(Almost) Christmas in New York! One of our favorite annual traditions is a late November or early December trip to the city for shopping, Santa, tree lighting and, of course, ice skating in Rockefeller Center!

 

stylish kitchen in Upper East New York Apartment by Crystal Sinclair

 

Since we can’t be there this year, we decided to go in spirit. Touring this stylish Morning Heights Apartment by Crystal Sinclair was just the fix we needed to chase our New York blues away.

It is the perfect example of maximizing every square inch of space,

And choosing every single furnishing and accessory to be big on style.

A little history,

Mixes with modern, updated fixtures,

And stylish, timeless accents to create an Upper East Side space that is very chic and very unique during this, the most wonderful time of the year! Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, no matter what it looks like, and sending gratitude to you for being a part of our lives, today and always!

Preparing for the Holidays

holidays shopping with Serena & Lily round table in entry

 

Are you ready to get started with holiday preparations–a little early? We know we are!

 

 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily entry with round table and round chandelier

 

 

We love picking out the perfect gifts for the people we love–especially when they’re holiday decor gifts–and we’ll be shopping while the turkey cooks. (Although we’re thinking the shopping will take significantly less time.). 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily living room with sectional sofa

 

 
Throws and trays always top our list of great gifts for those friends that are just impossible to buy for, and when it comes to the intersection of quality, style and uniqueness, these are some of our very favorite. 


 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily chaises lounge in living room

 

We have filled our homes with Serena & Lily throw pillows and love the comfort and the incredible quality. Fluffy, full inserts (Go a size bigger than the pillow for that extra fluff!) and darling details add that little something extra that we’re always looking for.

 


 

 

riviera stools with Serena & Lily at the holidays
Riviera Stools

 

We have these Riviera Stools, but, if we didn’t, rest assured, they would be on our wishlist! They completely changed the look of our kitchen and are comfortable to sit in to boot!

 


 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily bedroom with custom headboard

 

Chic new bedding and gorgeous, luxurious rugs are perfect for giving your home that special holiday spruce,


 

 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily bedroom with gallery wall and bench at foot of bed

 

Just like we did in our guest room, pictured here, last year! Serena & Lily bedding is nothing short of luxurious–and this bench is a forever favorite!

 


 

Holiday shopping with Serena & Lily nursery

 

No one does gifts for the nursery better than Serena & Lily.

 


 

hanging swing in playroom

 

And, we have to say, we couldn’t love this swing (And pillows! And basket! And floor pillow! And throw!) any more in our playroom. A hanging swing made a difficult-to-decorate attic slant easy and whimsical, perfect for kids and adults alike. Baskets make great favorite, functional gifts for friends, especially if getting organized this year is on the top of their New Year’s Resolution list. 

 


 

Holidays shopping with Serena & Lily playroom with chaise lounge and bamboo shades

 

Speaking of whimsy… This chaise room/kids’ art space off our kitchen got the perfect finishing touch from a beautiful pair of throws. They’re so cozy to reach for on chilly days and pretty all the time. The details are truly exceptional. 

 


 

bathroom with bamboo shades and bamboo stool from Serena & Lily at the holidays

 

A cute hamper and a darling teak step-stool added the right amount of pizazz to our kids’ bathroom–and that perfect amount of coastal feel in a home by the shore. We love a little bit of a beachy feel no matter where we are. And Serena & Lily, clearly one of our favorite partners in design, does it better than all the rest.
