More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

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 evangelical 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 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 busted 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 the one that got away comes back, 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, wittiest, and 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: Brays Island Beauty Part TWO

Beth Webb Interiors Brays Island House tour kitchen

 

Yesterday, we began a tour of a breathtaking Brays Island Home by Beth Webb. (If you missed it, you can tour now!)

But some homes contain so much beauty, so much inspiration (and such a great fall-ish bar!) that one day simply isn’t enough.

Brays Island is known for its spectacular sporting–hunting, fishing, equestrian pursuits–and this lovely home gives us that amazing outdoor vibe.

Warm details and tons of texture create a feeling of warmth and homeyness,

And Beth Webb blends the masculine and the feminine with such grace.

Chic Chat: Anelle Gandelman of A-List Interiors

ANELLE GANDELMAN – A-LIST INTERIORS

From Parsons to DwellStudio, Sotheby’s to A-List Interiors, talented interior designer (and savvy businesswoman) Anelle Gandelman has been on the fast-track to success since immigrating to the US at age 17. Read on to find out about her inspirational journey, why travel sparks her creativity and her biggest challenge as a designer


1. How did you get started as a designer?

I did not take a direct path in becoming an interior designer. I was an artistic child, constantly painting and drawing, but I always knew I wouldn’t be happy as a fine artist and wanted a career that combined creativity with aspects of business. After high school I entered Parsons School of Design, thinking I wanted to be an art director at an advertising agency. However, while at Parsons I landed an internship with DwellStudio, a home furnishings brand founded by Christiane Lemieux, while it was in its start-up phase. I ended up working there for a few years after graduation, designing textiles, developing furnishings, and falling in love with all things home. I received an incredible hands-on education in both design and the running of a small business during my time there, but left DwellStudio to pursue a graduate program at Sotheby’s. While at Sotheby’s I developed my knowledge of antiques and contemporary art which led me to open an art gallery, representing emerging artists, in 2007. When the economic crisis of 2008 hit though, art sales became more difficult and I started providing in-home art consultations. These art consultations quickly morphed into interior design consultations which in turn developed into larger interior design projects and in 2012 I founded A-List Interiors.

 

2.Where do you get your inspiration?

It sounds a bit cliche, but my biggest inspiration is travel. I think it’s so important to leave my comfort zone and see things from other people’s perspective. I believe the more I see, the more trained my eye becomes at picking up on details and nuances that elevate the design of a room. Books and images are great but they can’t replace actually experiencing a space, whether that’s a luxury boutique hotel or a period room in an historic house.  

 

3. Do you have a favorite project to date? Or a favorite type of project that tends to be your favorite?

My favorite type of project is a large scale renovation or new build where we are involved from start to finish. It’s very fulfilling to take a home all the way from just a set of plans to a fully furnished turn key space, down to the last coffee table book. 

 

4.What is the biggest challenge you face as a designer?

The lack of standard business practices within the interior design industry and educating potential clients, who have never worked with an interior designer before, in what we do and the value of our services. This can be especially tricky, when furniture stores offer “free interior design services” and e-design platforms advertise low cost design packages.

 

5. What do you consider your biggest accomplishment to date? 

My biggest accomplishment to date is immigrating to the US from South Africa at 17 years old. That single decision set a completely new course for my life and made so many things possible, including the opportunity to grow the business I have today. 

6.Are there any designers that particularly inspire you?

I am inspired by Thomas Pheasant – his projects span a wide range of styles, from traditional to very contemporary, but they always feel classic and timeless. He has a way of creating rooms that are filled with beautiful details, yet they are never overstuffed and feel carefully edited which aligns with my own philosophy towards design. I also love the work of Parisian designers, Jean-Louis Denoit and Joseph Dirand. They both have such a strong point of view and I admire their ability to mix styles.

 

7. Go-to paint color?

Benjamin Moore China White

 

Ebooks or hardbacks?

M&Ms or Skittles?

Coffee or tea?

Southern Home Tour: Ponte Vedra Perfection

Ponte Vedra living room Kipling House Interiors

Kipling House Interiors and Jessie Preza Photography

 

We don’t know about you, but we love a good magazine. The thrill of getting something fun in the mail that isn’t a bill… The way it feels in your hand… All the bright colors… That special, magazine smell… And, of course, being able to hide it away somewhere to look at again for years and years. 

 

Ponte Vedra Kipling House Interiors home office

 

For us, Southern Home is one of those publications we want to peruse over and over again–which is why we are so excited to share this stunning Ponte Vedra, Florida home featured in their pages with all of you!

Krysta Gibbons of Kipling House Interiors designed the charming details of this interior–from the whimsical to the rustic–and created a haven of style and substance for a family of five to enjoy.

And Jessie Preza Photography captured every special moment in its best light. This is a butler’s pantry dreams are made of, isn’t it? We’re pretty sure we love any space with a library ladder.

Did we mention that the exterior is perfection? The color palette is positively swoon worthy!
