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!

Feels Like Falling Home Tour: Gray’s House

Carrier & Co


Good morning, friends! My sixth novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING is out in the world! 



As with all of my books, in FEELS LIKE FALLING, home is a big deal–for more reasons than one. Blogger-turned-media-mogul Gray is going through a nasty divorce and, as a result, contemplating selling her beloved home, while Diana loses her boyfriend and her job in the same day and realizes that she is suddenly without a home.



The book is set in Cape Carolina, a fictional town that resembles a bit of a mash-up of the little strectch of the NC coast where I live, a juxtaposition of Morehead City and Atlantic Beach with a dash of Beaufort thrown in. 



Gray’s home is older, right on the water, and, as she says, she picked every last pansy that had ever been planted. She is hard-pressed to leave her home and all her hard work on it behind. But leaving behind the memories is going to be even harder.



Gray and Diana both do a lot of discovery around family (around the dinner table!) in this book, specifically about how we create our families, what they look like and how they should be.



For Gray, opening her home to a stranger (or, maybe, strangers, plural) gives her an entirely new perspective about what that means.



When I was writing, I pictured Gray and her son Wagner surrounded by pretty neutrals and water blues,



Touches of history and a bit of artistic whimsy.



Despite her high-tech job, Gray has very classic tastes.



She savored the experience of taking this beach house and preserving what was good–



While making it the ultimate summer retreat for her entire family.



If you could use an escape today, please, please join me (And Gray! And Diana!) in Cape Carolina. Thanks, so much, dear friends, for supporting my novels since day 1. Truly, I wouldn’t be here without each of you!

Get FEELS LIKE FALLING today from your favorite independent bookstore, online retailer or wherever books are sold. Friends!

Amazon is temporarily sold out of paperbacks, but you can still get the kindle edition.  (Thank you, by the way!) They’ll be back soon,


but, in the meantime, here’s a list of availability:

Only Three Weeks Until My New Novel, Feels Like Falling, Releases!

We’ll be announcing the new virtual tour dates at the end of the this week, so be on the lookout!

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 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.
