Happy Monday, chic readers! We hope you had a great weekend. Today, we are absolutely loving soapstone, not only for its gorgeous looks but also for its heat tolerance, which makes it particularly perfect for the kitchen. From an island accent to an entire room, there’s no wrong way to use soapstone! Check out ten of our favorite kitchens with this beautiful, versatile material.

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey Beach house book

I am so excited that my new novel Feels Like Falling releases on April 28!

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. 

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.




Natural Stone for Countertops

O’Brien Harris


Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had a fabulous weekend and are enjoying the beginning of this wonderful fall season. We spent the weekend at the beach and at a UNC football game and savored every minute!

The only downside was the outcome of the game. This Duke blue stove is giving us negative flashbacks if that gives you a hint… Even still, it’s so fabulous we’d love to install one right in our own kitchens–with that impeccable marble backsplash alongside it as well.

It’s no secret we love a gorgeous natural stone countertop.  We adore the white veining in this black countertop and how it picks up the white accents in the cabinets and backsplash. It’s the perfect combination of light and dark.

A mix of materials in the kitchen is always welcome. A wood butcher’s block gives a nice contrast to a honed granite–and adds an extra work surface for entertaining and meal prep for a crowd.

Natural stone sinks are even better! The uniform look this adds to the kitchen is so chic.

No need to accessorize this stunning kitchen countertop. Beautiful and durable, this granite is perfect for the chef.

Few home accents are as versatile as natural stone. From modern homes to the very traditional, a gorgeous marble, granite, slate or stone countertop coordinates beautifully with any decor.

The cohesive look that this marble countertop with matching backsplash creates is absolutely stunning. And the chunky handles and stainless shelves add an industrial touch.

What’s on Your Kitchen Counter


Happy Tuesday, everyone! We hope you are staying warm. It is supposed to be 75 here tomorrow!! And snow on Thursday… Oh, me. I guess this is what you get for living in North Carolina. On the bright side, we made it to Atlanta for the Design Bloggers Conference last week, amidst the snow and storms. We had a wonderful time meeting blog friends in real life and getting to hear the fabulous Bunny Williams and Nate Berkus speak. So fun!


 And, today, the fun continues! The fabulous and talented Sarah from 702 Park Project asked us, “What’s on your kitchen counter?” For starters, these huge canisters filled with beans and quinoa make healthy cooking easy and ensure that we have all the essentials on hand when we need them. Truth be told, we’d prefer that they be filled with Hershey’s eggs… But, you know, beans are good too.
