Things We Love: Steel Doors in Design

Doors and windows are one of those things that are so crucial to the feel of a house but are quite often overlooked.

Sometimes, we can go through them and look out of them many, many times a day and never give them a second thought.

When they’re as fabulous as these steel doors, though, the panes in your home become something truly

We usually think of steel as adding an industrial touch,

but, when used the right way, these steel doors and windows add an antiqued, lived-in feel to a home.

They are sleek, clean and uncluttered,

and make a statement all their own, no window treatment required.

Excited to Share the Cover for My New Novel The Secret to Southern Charm

MORE ABOUT THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM BOOK 2 OF THE PEACHTREE BLUFF SERIES:

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically-acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances that proves why she is the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).
