Great news, Kindle readers! Slightly South of Simple is now available on Kindle Unlimited. If you haven’t started my Peachtree Bluff Series, now is the perfect time 🍑 And, oh my goodness, thank you to all who have downloaded! Slightly South is 

still #1 in Southern Fiction.

The Huffington Post said of Slightly South: “Writers come and writers go, but Kristy Woodson Harvey is here to stay. The warmth, wit, and wisdom of this novel pave her way into the exclusive sisterhood of southern writers.” I’d love it if you checked it out!





In Good Taste: David Kleinberg Design

It may be snowing all across NC today, but, even still, last weekend was time for a little Spring cleaning!

David Kleinberg Design

A super fun photo shoot with Serena & Lily (stop by tomorrow to see our Spring spruce!) inspired us to clean up, clear out and pare down.

Needless to say, the house feels lighter, brighter and oh-so-good–and so do we!

The good taste of David Kleinberg makes us feel that exact same way!

David Kleinberg Design

Perfectly accessorized but never overdone, his designs feel calming, refreshing and terrifically uncluttered.

His own Upper East Side apartment (pictured here!) is a study in color, texture and high style.

But whether he’s designing for himself or a client, Kleinberg always leaves his mark.

Or more beautifully rustic ones,

Kleinberg’s work always speaks for itself–and is the perfect way to get inspired to do a little Spring cleaning of your own! Spring Break will be here before we know it!

Speaking of Spring Break, my latest novel, THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, releases on April 3, right in the thick of Spring Break! And, Southern Living just named it one of its “Best Spring Break Reads.” Hooray! Now is the perfect time to preorder!

We know y’all know our fab friend Jeanne McKay Hartmann. Have you ever seen anything as adorable as these beautiful illustrated cards that she made to go with The Secret to Southern Charm? We know we haven’t! Shoes, champagne and sweet tea… What else does a girl need? For more of her gorgeousness, check follow her on Instagram at @jeannemckayhartmann!

In Good Taste: Timothy Brown Studio

Good morning, chic readers! We have so much good taste to share with you today, and we can’t wait!

Timothy Brown Studio‘s style reminds us of summer.

Bright, bold and oh so fun.

Pops of color and eclectic art add touches of whimsy that define these spaces.

Gray and gold are a stunning combination in this streamlined kitchen.

And an overall streamlined aesthetic creates a calming feeling in these beautiful homes.

A mix of metals, textures and materials in this chic kitchen add so much style.

And an open floor plan makes this space feel large and perfect for entertaining a crowd.

Speaking of entertaining a crowd, this fun floor plan is ideal for maximum seating and ensures that everyone in the room can actually talk–all without blocking a single beautiful window. Such an ingenious floor plan!

A round table is one of our favorite entrance hall staples. A luxurious natural stone adds an interesting touch.

One of our favorite things about these designers is that they know which elements of a room should shout…

And which should whisper. This simple yet beautiful bedding creates a room perfect for relaxing after a long day. We hope that, wherever home is for you, it feels just the same.

And the winner is….

Congratulations to the winner of the $350 Minted Gift Card, Ellen Lugat! Ellen, we can’t wait to see what you choose with your winnings!

We can’t believe that Slightly South of Simple will be out in the world three weeks from today! Thrilled to see this beautiful photo from our incredibly talented artist friend Jeanne McKay Hartmann. She said, “Going Slightly South this Sunday… so happy to have some time today to get lost in @kristywharvey ‘s Slightly South of Simple. Kristy has such a talent for creating characters – after a few pages they seem like friends. The perfect escape on slightly sunny afternoon.”

It’s never a bad time to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea. Thank you, Jeanne!
