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 Second Act for Empty Nesters

 Margaret Kirkland Interiors curb appeal entry for empty nesters

 

We can all use a good second chance every now and then.

 

Margaret Kirkland Interiors entry for empty nesters

 

From furniture to houses, accessories to, yes, people, reinvention is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves. 

 

Margaret Kirkland Interiors living room.for empty nesters

 

And, sometimes, when life changes, in order to move forward, we could all use a second act. 

 

Margaret Kirkland Interiors living room.for empty nesters

 

That’s exactly what this stunning home became for a pair of empty nesters. 

 

Margaret Kirkland Interiors living room.for empty nesters

 

And what a stylish second act it is!

 

Margaret Kirkland Interiors kitchen.for empty nesters

 

Perfectly appointed for a pair–or a party–

And all decked out for the holidays,

We can’t imagine a better place to start a brand new chapter.

Or, for that matter, a better bathroom.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas Eve Eve–and plenty of space for fresh starts in 2021!

House Tour: Cathy Kincaid Designed River House

Cathy Kincaid Interiors entry

 

Over the river and through the woods… 

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors living room

 

Or, actually, if it’s all the same to you, we think we’ll just stop at the river this time. 

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors living room

 

(Once you finish touring this gorgeous river house by Cathy Kincaid Interiors, you’ll totally understand why!)

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors dining room

 

With rustic beams and a pretty color palette, 

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors butler's pantry

 

Charming nooks,

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors window seat

 

And cozy spaces for hiding out,

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors bedroom

 

Every square inch is covered with the kind of sentimental charm that makes a space feel like home

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors bedroom

 

A pretty antique here,

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors master bedroom

 

A pop of blue and white there,

 

 

And gloriously luxe textiles to round it out, this river house is big on comfort, style and heirlooms with staying power.

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors porch dining al fresco

 

But, it is the river, after all. So the outdoors are kind of the main event.

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors curb appeal

 

And as you can see, not a detail has been overlooked. From the most beautiful exterior, to a perfectly pruned garden,

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors pavillion

 

To a darling pool house that beckons,

 

Cathy Kincaid Interiors cruising boat

 

And a gorgeous boat to boot, who needs to go through the woods when the river is this fabulous?

We’re fully in the more-is-more, decorations-everywhere spirit of the holidays.

 

Rebekah Woodard Interiors living room

 

But, if you’re looking for a breather, this stunner by Rebekah Woodard Interiors is just the palette cleanser you need to take a quick break from holiday overload. 

 

Rebekah Woodard Interiors living room

 

With calm colors and soothing style, it’s like a spa-day on your computer or phone screen.

And don’t forget to scroll to the end because the exterior is just as fabulous as the interior!

 

Rebekah Woodard Interiors dining room

 

We are loving chic centerpieces like this for tabletop style that lasts long after the holiday season–

 

Rebekah Woodward Interiors kitchen

 

And clean, pretty kitchens with plenty of space for meal prep!

The heart of this home is fabulous in every way–

And even has the perfect eat-in spot for bright morning breakfasts. (Maybe on Christmas Day?!)

Our favorite color accents are always the fresh ones. (And our favorite dinner companions are often the furry ones!)

Butler’s pantry bliss!

 

Rebekah Woodard Interiors master bedroom

 

A pure haven of relaxation. We can’t imagine not drifting right off to sleep here!

 

Rebekah Woodard Interiors bathroom

 

Speaking of relaxation… There’s nothing we love more than a good, long bath in a gorgeous tub like this!

 

Rebekah Woodard Interiors bedroom

 

Pure poolhouse charm–and it’s functional too!

Especially during these days of dining outdoors, this space is entertaining perfection.

We’re huge fans of the gorgeous interior of this home, but, wow! It keeps getting even better outside!

 

Rebekah Woodward Interiors pool

 

We’re in total Christmas bliss over here, but, when the holidays are over, we’ll be ready for lounging somewhere just like this!

 

Thanks so much for spending your holiday season with Design Chic. We always love seeing you here!

House Tour: Caroline Gidiere ‘s Georgian Home in Alabama Part 2

Caroline Gidiere 's Georgian Home in Alabama

 

We were so thrilled to be able to share Part 1 of this too-stunning-for-words Caroline Gidiere house with you yesterday! (Check out Part 1 Here!) 

 

Caroline Gidiere 's Georgian Home in Alabama kitchen

 

Let’s just say that, judging from your response, we think you loved this Alabama home as much as we did! 

 

Caroline Gidiere 's Georgian Home in Alabama dining nook

With architectural details that shine,

guest rooms too beautiful for words

Children’s bedrooms that grow as they do,

Outdoor spaces that sing,

And gardens

that Stephen Gidiere personally prunes, clips and trims,

Combine to make a true home that is as well-tended and lush on the outdoors

 

Caroline Gidiere 's Georgian Home in Alabama

 

as it is inside. 

 

Caroline Gidiere 's Georgian Home in Alabama

 

When Gidiere began this project, she was still an attorney. But, through this process it became clear that interiors were her true passion. 

 

 

Which goes to show that the best homes, like the best experiences, are always teaching us about the person we are meant to be. 

 

Thank you for visiting us today!  We always love seeing you here!

House Tour: Caroline Gidiere ‘s Georgian Style in Alabama

caroline gidiere home tour curb appeal

 

 

For many, the idea of a complete design and build is fraught with panic, fear and frustration. 

 

Caroline Gidiere

 

But when designer Caroline Gidiere and her husband Stephen discovered that the Mountain Brook,  Alabama Home they had purchased was a tear-down,

 

Caroline Gidiere entry in blue and white porcelain

 

 they didn’t blink an eye.

 

Caroline Gidiere living room in blue and white and green

 

Instead, Gidiere knew immediately what she wanted architect James F. Carter to build in its place. 

 

Caroline Gidiere blue and white and green living room

 

A nod to the George Wythe house in Williamsburg, where Gidiere spent many a childhood vacation,

 

Caroline Gidiere blue and white and green living room

 

this stunning Georgian is a study in symmetry and balance, which Gidiere told Veranda “massages something deep in (her) brain.”

 

Caroline Gidiere blue and white and green living room with topiaries

 

Bright and inviting,

 

Caroline Gidiere blue and white and green living room

 

And traditionally eclectic,

 

Caroline Gidiere white and green living room

 

Not a single detail was overlooked in this home’s happy interior. 

 

Caroline Gidiere white and green living room

 

Gidiere set out to design a home well-suited for family and entertaining,

 

dining room with green and white wallpaper

 

and it seems that she created just that.  Isn’t the de Gournay hand painted wallpaper is a showstopper?!

 

 

Don’t miss tomorrow’s post, where we continue the tour of Caroline’s amazing home and gardens!

Thanks so much for spending your holiday season with Design Chic. We always love seeing you here!
