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!

The combination of crisp white, distressed wood and touches of brass might be one of our very favorites.

We adore a super chic daybed. This one rounds out this living room perfectly, while letting in light from the window behind it.

This modern bar is pretty and practical,

And an open space takes advantage of every bit of light.

And feeding a crowd is stylish and never too overdone in a Zoe Feldman-designed space.

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.

In Good Taste: Meredith Ellis Design

 

It has officially turned cold in North Carolina (Okay, well, high 50s… but it feels cold.) and we are feeling the need to snuggle up and stay close to home

 

Meredith Ellis designed dining room

 

These spaces by Meredith Ellis Design have all the trappings of the kinds of places we want to spend our days and nights right now. 

 

Meredith Ellis designed library

 

Deep, moody blues create the perfect work space,

 

Meredith Ellis designed dining nook

 

And perfectly imperfect gallery walls and stacks of books embody the homey feel we’re craving this winter. 

 

Meredith Ellis designed dining nook

Bright sunny spots blent with rich wood antiques for spaces that are the best of both worlds,

 

Meredith Ellis designed family room

 

And libraries for whiling away sleepy, restful days take precedence.

A deep, real-wood fireplace is necessary,

 

Meredith Ellis designed office

 

And bonus points are given for a sloped, dreamy ceiling–

 

Meredith Ellis designed bedroom

 

And cozy covers to crawl underneath. 

 

 

Dark wood and bamboo accents ground a space,

 

Meredith Ellis designed mudroom

 

And even the mudroom feels dark, moody and just right for right now. We couldn’t love these gorgeous, perfectly designed spaces any more. What’s your favorite Meredith Ellis-designed room?

In Good Taste: Margaret Naeve Parker

 

Do you need a break today? 

 

 

An exhale?

 

Par Bengtsson

 

A quick moment to calm, recenter and collect your thoughts? 

 

 

If so, we hope you find all the relaxation you need in these stunning spaces by Margaret Naeve Parker Design.

 

 

We are huge fans of juxtaposition, and Margaret Naeve Parker absolutely nails it every time. A traditional chandelier with modern furnishings,

 

 

A staid and lovely dining room that gives us all the Swedish vibes,

 

 

A simple, lovely and light-filled spot that is reminiscent of the outdoors at every turn,

 

 

Parker’s signature style is beautifully evident in every space she graces. 

 

 

Even this dreamy bathroom bears her fingerprint and is perfectly cohesive with her style. 

 

 

This is the kind of shower dreams are made of! We love the brass accents. 

 

 

 

And you can bring Parker’s gorgeous good taste home from her fabulous shop, M. Naeve in Houston, Texas. It’s hitting the internet soon, and we’ll be sure to let you know when you can shop right from your own living room!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by!

In Good Taste: Laura Park Designs

 

If you’re looking for a little inspiration today, you’ve come to the right place! We are so, so excited to share the gorgeous work and fabulous collection of good friend, fellow UNC grad and ridiculously talented artist Laura Park of Laura Park Designs. We have long swooned over her art, but her new textile, apparel and accessory collections are so stunning that now we have one more reason to stalk her on Instagram

 

 

We knew they were beautiful in pictures, but the first time we saw Laura’s textiles in person at High Point Market, they stopped us dead in our tracks. They are too beautiful for words. One of her beyond gorgeous rugs was the first thing I got when we moved back into our house after the hurricane, and it makes me happy every, single day. Good art can do that, you know. If you could use a little happy (Couldn’t we all right now?!), take a peek at this fabulous collection–and treat yourself. You deserve it!

Beautiful, right? I seriously have a Laura Park wishlist as long as my arm for when our addition gets finished. Wallpaper for my office, bedding for the new bedroom, a floor cloth for my bathroom, and those plates?! Those are a right-now must have. Let us know what’s on your Laura Park wishlist too!
