A crisp, clean, soothing interior color palette has to be one of our favorite hallmarks of design, and Marker creates that in droves.

She pulls off glamour with aplomb,

But there’s also something slightly bohemian about Marker’s designs that creates her signature style so well.

What Your Favorite Influencers are Saying About Feels Like Falling:

feels like falling Kristy Woodson Harvey

Kristie in Carolina Says:

It’s safe to say, this book is my favorite one yet from Kristy!

Feels Like Falling is a southern, summertime story that follows two strong characters, Gray and Diana, who are almost total opposites in personality and in their stages of life.

Gray heads to the North Carolina coast for the summer to try to find herself after the recent loss of her mother and separation from her husband. Meanwhile, Diana has broken up with her boyfriend, lost her job, and finds herself out on the streets.

Feels Like Falling follows both Gray and Diana over the course of their summer and tells the story of strong women, unexpected friendships, and how both life and love have a way of working out.

This is definitely a book you’re going to want to add to your summer reading list! I am really hoping that Kristy decides to make this book in to a series!

Thanks so much, Kristie! Feels Like Falling is available for preorder now and officially releases April 28, 2020, wherever books are sold!

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.

Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support and friendship and book love. I am so grateful for YOU each and every day!

10 Ways to Add Style to Your Kitchen

deVOL Kitchens

 

When it comes to kitchens, we spend a lot of time thinking about the usual things. White or stainless appliances? Wood or white cabinets? Wood or tile floors? Beyond the basics, there are so many ways to make the heart of the home warm, welcoming and absolutely you. Take a peek at a few of our favorite ways to add style to the kitchen!

1. Beautiful beams. Beams instantly lend a rustic feel, interest on the ceiling and, we think, an overall cozy feeling!

 

Whittney Parkinson Design

 

2. Add an arch. In the kitchen, the little things are everything. Arches are one of our favorite architectural details that create instant charm.

Jean Stoffer Design

 

3.  Lend a personal touch with luxurious kitchenware. From china to silverware, serving trays to accessories, kitchenware is a fabulous way to express yourself in the heart of the home.

Kate Marker InteriorsMargaret Rajic Photography

 

4. Use a pot rack. Not only is a pot rack a convenient way to free up cabinet space, but it also looks fabulous.

5. Install statement lighting. A splash of color or a fun metallic can become an instant focal point in a kitchen.

6. Accent with natural stone. Natural stone is a beautiful touch in a kitchen. This honed marble is absolutely stunning!

7. Hang your favorite art. In the land of appliances and cookware, art may not be a top priority but a well-placed piece or two adds tons of personality!

Whittney Parkinson Design

 

8. Display serveware with glass front cabinets. Glass front cabinets feel light, open and airy and are a great way to display favorite service pieces, china, wine glasses or family silver.

 

deVOL kitchens

 

9. Paint cabinets a signature color. In a world where neutral cabinets are the norm, painting cabinets a statement color is a way to instantly set your kitchen apart.

Whittney Parkinson Design

 

10. Make a splash with your range hood. From a simple microwave vent to something truly spectacular, there are so many ways to vent your kitchen. A unique, beautiful range hood like this one adds so much impact.

 

What is your favorite way to add style to your kitchen? Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

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).

House Tour: Hám Interior Design

If you loved the good taste of Hám Interior Design in yesterday’s post as much as we did, then this house tour is sure to be a treat. 

A mix of shiplap, fine architectural details, black and white flooring with updated finishes, this is a home that is at once livable and stylish. 

 

A chic living room makes this home feel cozy as can be,

And an updated kitchen with touches of old world charm combine effortlessly,

The right blend of form, function and whimsy.

An easy, calming color palette lends an instant serene vibe from the entrance hall to the dining room and beyond.  

 

And what we perhaps love the most about this home is the splashes of the unexpected–like the bold art in this bathroom–that sets this place apart from all the rest. 

Pops of color keep it just light enough, 

While a pretty mix of details add character in every space. 

A place for everything is the icing on the cake! 

 

We hope you’ve loved this British getaway from Hám Interior Design just as much as we have!
