Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

Spring Cleaning and Organizing your Home

Spring cleaning and organizing
Sage Design

Good morning, chic readers! ‘Tis the season for… spring cleaning, of course! It may not technically be spring yet, but, we don’t know about you, but we like to be ready when spring is ready to make its arrival, as if tossing old shoes and organizing our sock drawers can usher it in a little faster. Plus, once spring arrives, who wants to be cooped up inside cleaning? Not us!

If you’re like us, the kitchen is not only the heart of the home. It’s also the place where everything seems to get dumped throughout the day! Sometimes it feels like the electronics are taking over! Docking Drawer charging and powering outlets in the kitchen are probably the most brilliant invention since the smart phone. Now we can charge all those devices without having an ounce of counter clutter. 

Spring cleaning and organizing
Betty Lou Phillips

 

We all know there’s never enough drawer space. There just isn’t. Fortunately, there are so many pretty ways to display all the attractive and practical things that live in the kitchen.

If the kitchen is the winner of where everything gets dumped, the office is a very close runner up.

Fortunately, there’s a Docking Drawer for the office too. It’s great for smaller electronics but also perfect for putting your laptop in the drawer for the night. For us, it’s out of sight out of mind… and if it isn’t out of sight then we’re on it!

So, Docking Drawers for electronics are awesome. But Docking Drawers for the bathroom? A whole new level. The tangle of cords and jumble of the hairdryer, flat iron and curling iron is the bane of my existence.  This solution is totally practical. (And gets bonus points for being pretty!)

Whether you have tons of space in the bathroom,

Or a smaller nook to work with, there’s plenty of space for a Docking Drawer!

Now that the cords and counter clutter problems are solved, there’s plenty of room for dreaming. Coffee in the bathroom, anyone? This morning kitchen is too beautiful for words–and how great to have that first cup without even walking to the kitchen?

Spring Cleaning and Organizing

We don’t know about you, but, for us, stacks of white, neatly folded towels are one of the simplest ways to add instant clutter-free appeal to the bathroom.

If you’re lucky to have space for a big laundry room, you’re lucky enough. Making the best possible use of the space by hiding everything behind beautiful cabinetry is a bonus!

And, of course, we’re spring cleaning our closets. They are our spring cleaning Everest… Packing for the five week The Secret to Southern Charm tour was a good start because it got me in the paring mood. (If you aren’t going to wear it in five weeks when are you really going to wear it?) What’s first on your spring cleaning list? 

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

Kitchen Organization for the New Year

kitchen organization
Cantley & Co

 

Good morning, chic readers and Happy Martin Luther King Day! If there’s any day to reflect on the lives we want to lead and the people we want to become, it’s today.

kitchen organization
Cantley & Co

 

On the heels of New Year’s, we are slowly addressing our New Year’s Resolutions. Some of them change from year to year, but, alas, some of them are the same.

kitchen organization
Sage Design

 

But maybe that’s because they are less like resolutions and more things that we keep needing to address year after year to keep everything in our houses running smoothly.

kitchen organization
Sage Design

 

Kitchen organization is something we’re constantly refining, editing and trying to make better than it was the year before.

Cantley & Co.

 

On my list this year is getting new glassware. I don’t know what happens, but I guess over a period of being married for ten years, glasses have gotten broken, new ones have come in a few at a time, and it’s just time for a clean sweep. We have glass kitchen cabinets like these, so it’s very important that everything match!

Now this is a necessity. We love, love, love using linens, and this would make using them in the kitchen such a breeze!

If you know us, you know we love books. Cookbooks are no exception! This is great catch-all storage, an organized version of the junk drawer. We don’t know about you, but, no matter how we try, we still have one!

Pretty cabinets make for great storage!

We couldn’t love drawers in kitchens any more. These are absolute perfection! 

Do you have any kitchen organization goals for this year?

Things We Love: An Organized Kitchen!

kitchen
Steven Gambrel via AD

 

Oh, yes. We had to start sometime, didn’t we? With the organization posts? Because what is 2017 if not the perfect year to create a home that you absolutely love?

cabinets
Carolyne Roehm via OKL

 

For us, that love starts with our cabinets. Every year. Well, not every year. Some years it’s our drawers. Or the pantry. But you get the idea.

glass
BHG

 

This year, for me, it was the vitamin cabinet. Because I have every vitamin or supplement known to man. I’m just not great at following through with taking the entire bottle… But I’m better than my husband. Literally every new year he buys a 30-day supply of a swanky men’s multi at Whole Foods. And, every year, I chunk the expired bottle–with about 27 pills left in it. So now that’s done. Shew.

kitchen
BHG

At our house, this year, the number was three. Three big, black contractor bags full of things that had to be thrown out and taken to the street. Nothing will make you vow to buy less stuff than seeing three bags of it on your sidewalk for 48 entire hours because you forgot that there was no trash pick up on Monday since it’s was NYD observed.

organized
Skurman Architect

 

After the vitamin cabinet, it was the pantry. This is little Will’s favorite area to help with, so that’s kind of nice. He gets sidetracked pretty quickly by some old fruit snacks or something that he’s begging me to let him eat, but, until then, he’s really good at helping me line up all the glass jars just so. They all match, and it is my favorite thing to peek inside that perfectly organized pantry and see all of those clean, lined up glass jars. Sometimes I walk in there and look at them when I’m stressed. True story.

shopping
Studio Dearborn

 

We actually use all of our spices, marinades etc. By “we” I, of course, mean my husband. I get on a cooking kick around January 3 and by about January 5 I’ve remembered how much I hate to cook and the job is turned over to him again. In fairness, he loves it. And if we have mustard, pickles and some nearly expired cumin in the house he somehow turns it into a magically delicious meal. Which is good because, incongruously, though I don’t do the cooking, I do the grocery shopping.

pantry
Artichoke, ltd

 

I love it because when I get home I get to spend time in my glorious pantry putting all the food away.

knives
Artichoke, Ltd

 

Since I’m not the cook, it would follow that the knives aren’t really my deal either. We didn’t even have to register for them because hubby had ALL the knives. We keep ours in a block way back on the counter away from little hands. You know, just in case. This would be a major hazard in our house, but it looks fabulous!

glass
Artichoke, Ltd.

 

Dishes and serve ware are another area in which we pared down as much as possible this year.

lights

You can just only eat and serve off of so many things, even if, like us, you’re a big fan of having parties. 

marble
de Giulio Design

 

Once you become acquainted with the things you use over and over again–and, more importantly, the things you don’t–this is an easier task. Still hard, because, you know, everything is suddenly full of memories. But easier when your cabinets look all streamlined and clean and nothing is flying out at you when you open the door.

stainless
de Giulio Design

 

Now this is pot storage. We love this and want it immediately. 

organized
Studio Dearborn

 

Still on my list (and in my Joss & Main cart): getting those pull out sliders for all of my cabinets.

stainless
Studio Dearborn

 

It is amazing how things just get lost forever in the back of those deep cabinets. Sliders make them so, so functional. I can’t wait to get mine!

Betty Lou Phillips Interior Design

 

Do you go on a decluttering binge at the beginning of the new year? Or are you one of those people who is so disciplined you don’t even have any clutter?

stainless
de Giulio Design

If you’re the latter, we are so jealous. Share your secrets with us! If you could use a little organization in your life tell us: where are you starting this year?

Thanks so much for stopping by today! We always love seeing you!
