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.

Matthew Patrick Smyth ‘s Through a Designer’s Eye

matthew Patrick Smyth Through a Designer's Eye

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope your fall is off to a gorgeous start.

 

Matthew Patrick Smyth living room

 

Yesterday, after a long weekend of fun birthday celebrations, we took a rare few hours off to indulge in one of our favorite pastimes: perusing beloved coffee table books!

 

Matthew Patrick Smyth living room

 

One of the great perks of this job is getting so many gorgeous new ones each month–like Matthew Patrick Smyth ‘s Through a Designer’s Eye.

 

Matthew Patrick Smyth living room

 

If you’re looking to spend a quiet hour or two filling up on inspiration to soothe your soul during the chillier temps–

 

Matthew Patrick Smyth living room

 

And being wowed by some truly spectacular style

Through a Designer’s Eye is a can’t-miss addition to your collection.

Not only is it spot-on for right now, but we know it’s one of those rare treasures that we’ll return to again and again, year after year. 

 

Matthew Patrick Smyth dining room

 

It was almost impossible to choose ten of our favorite images from inside to share with you, but this one, the perfect mix of formality and whimsy, was an easy selection,

As was this stunning combination of perfect architectural details and beautiful antiques.

But, as you can imagine, there’s plenty more where that came from! We hope you love Through a Designer’s Eye as much as we did!

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