MORE ABOUT The Secret to Southern Charm Book 2 of the Palmetto Bluff Series:

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).

White House, Big Charm

White House
New England Home Magazine

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a wonderful day and that, if you are in the path of Irma, you are staying safe. And friends affected by Hurricane Harvey, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you rebuild. 

White House
Architectural Digest

 

All of this crazy weather really has us thinking lately about how important our homes are to us, how they protect us and give us a refuge from the stresses and pressures of the outside world. It’s something we don’t recognize as much as we probably should until they are threatened.  Learn more about latent defects insurance.

White House
Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

These stunning white houses are full of charm and character. They are welcoming spaces that we are certain beckon their owners home each night. While we focus a lot on interiors, on how our favorite cozy chair and that painting we couldn’t take our eyes off of make us feel a certain way, the exteriors of our house can–and should–do that exact same thing. 

White House with dormers
Patrick Ahearn Architect

 

If a home should be anything at all, we think it should be welcoming. Window boxes and a trellis covered in vines are two of the best ways we can think of to take a home’s exterior from plain to positively darling. It’s simple touches like this that make a home feel loved and lived in. And don’t our special spaces deserve to be cared for?

Rob Lowe's White House
Architectural Digest

 

We all know that bigger isn’t always better and good things can come in small packages, but this stunning facade is positively breathtaking. The symmetry is spectacular.

White House with hydrangeas
New England Homes Magazine

 

That being said, there’s something undeniably charming about a lack of symmetry. Maybe it’s because hydrangeas our are favorite flowers, but we think this giant display is breathtaking. We love them in any shade, but these pretty blues and lilacs top our list.

Landscaping is obviously one of the most important ways to make your home feel unique. While we love flowers and big blooms, there’s something stately about a classic cluster of Boxwoods flanking the front door. Well-maintained foliage always contributes something special to a home’s exterior and gives the sense that there is a staid, lovely interior beyond the front door.

White House with red door
Architectural Digest

 

We are suckers for black and white, but a splash of color is always welcome. A set of red front doors adds an undeniably farmhouse feel to this impeccably manicured lot.

White House
BHG

 

There’s no doubt about it: Adding exterior color increases curb appeal. Plus, it’s easy to tell visitors that yours is the house with the red roof! Porches add character in droves and make for great porch sitting, especially during the cool fall months. 

 

What are your favorite ways to add character to a home’s exterior? Do you have any home improvement projects on your wish list?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. We always love seeing you!

In Good Taste: M & M Interior Design

Good morning, readers! Florida friends and everyone affected by Irma, you are in our thoughts and prayers and we hope you can get back home–too minimal damage–very, very soon.

We all know that home is one of the most important foundations of our lives, and that being away from it can be difficult. One of the things that we love most about M and M Designs, owned by the talented sister duo Leslie Martin and Kim Meardon, is that they don’t just create beautiful houses. They create homes that feel eclectic and collected, perfect for everything from entertaining to playing with kids.

These huge windows add tons of light, a feeling of openness, and, quite frankly, a big, fat design challenge. These designers totally rose to the occasion, making these windows the asset that they are.

What an idyllic little office! It’s the perfect space for paying bills and the window seat not only adds comfort but also storage, which is great for filing all those papers that tend to pile up.

This kitchen feels like home. Every detail is perfectly choreographed–from the rug to the lamp to the wood island–to make this large, functional space feel cozy and comfortable.

We know open floor plans are what most people want right now, but we still love our rooms to feel separate and distinct. This charming opening between the kitchen and adjoining room is the best of both worlds!

If a nursery for one is good, a nursery for two is even better! The use of this space is perfect.

From the rug on the floor to the Bla Blas on the bed, this is the perfect little boys room that, with a couple of tiny changes, will still be perfect when he’s a big boy!

We love playrooms, but multi-purpose spaces are really the best. This chic room works well for kids and adults alike.

Speaking of multi-purpose spaces, this darling settee is kid friendly with a sweet ballerina on top, but will work just as well when she’s more into lipgloss and texting than dolls and tea parties.

What is your favorite M&M Design space? 

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today! We always love seeing you here!

They are some of the most cherished members of the family and have an important place in our homes–and in our hearts.

If you’re a dog lover then you know we have to think about our four-legged friends when designing our homes! Bare floors like these make for easy shedding clean up.

And, well, we all know Rover isn’t going to be content to sleep on the floor when he can snuggle all night! Easy-to-wash duvets and coverlets are a must in a dog-loving family.

In homes with pets, the furniture has to be a little tougher–at least tough enough to withstand your pooch’s toenails and daring jumps!

And easy-to-clean-and-vacuum fabrics are a must so that your best friend doesn’t have to compromise his or her favorite lounging spot!

Let’s face it, our dogs make our homes look–and feel–better. From a cozy bed all his own to a cute doggie door to make his daily commute from indoors to out a breeze, we love the idea of making our homes work better for our dogs too!
