Slightly South of Simple/The Secret to Southern Charm


House Tour: Seagrove Beach Retreat

Seagrove Beach Retreat kitchen

We don’t know about you, but we could use a little getaway this week. We can’t think of many places we would rather get away to than this gorgeous Seagrove Beach retreat

This beautiful, sprawling kitchen is the absolutely ideal spot for feeding a crowd.

There’s no such thing as too many cooks in the kitchen in a space like this. 

Seagrove Beach Retreat dining

The only thing better than plenty of space for cooking is plenty of space for eating. This charming nook is the right mix of glamour and beachy style. 

Seagrove Beach bar

Speaking of charming nooks… Could this bar be any better?

House Tour: Andrew Skurman Architects

Andrew Skurman Architects house

Good morning, chic friends! Our friends at Andrew Skurman Architects have a treat for us today! A beautiful city residence that is perfection from the outside in.


Andrew Skurman Architects exterior

There is nothing like a first impression, and this one is totally on point and sets the tone for whats to come. The black front door juxtaposes perfectly with the beautiful tan of the exterior. And the trimmed boxwoods are the ideal accessory.

Modern art makes a stunning statement in a simple entrance hall. 

Andrew Skurman Architects glass

We don’t love anything quite as much as a light-filled hallway. This glass ceiling accomplishes that in high style!

A black and white vignette is always on trend!

There’s statement lighting…

And then there’s statement lighting! We think it’s safe to say that this fabulous home is full of it!

We love the clean, cool look of stainless in a kitchen, and this cabinetry takes the look over the top!

A beautiful bar is perfect for entertaining guests. We simply adore the copper sink! 

Andrew Skurman Architects bathroom

We can’t decide which element of this gorgeous bath is our favorite! But the architectural details in here definitely top the list. Those windows are incredible!

A perfect, elegant spiral.

Dining al fresco has never been so chic!

Comfy furniture with a fire table keeps outdoor entertaining alive all year round. Do you love outdoor entertaining in the fall? Or would you rather curl up by an indoor fire? 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

Excited to Share the Cover for My New Novel The Secret to Southern Charm



Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically-acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances that proves why she is the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).
