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.

10 Ways to Add Casual Style to Your Living Space

 

Happy Monday, friends! Today, we are celebrating big time. Slowly but surely, our place in Beaufort is coming back together after Hurricane Florence’s house party more than a year ago. The house isn’t livable yet, but the third floor is ready for its close up, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. We teamed up with our friends at Serena & Lily to create a cute playroom that also works well for the whole family–and we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite tips for adding casual style to your space.

  1. Add a touch of whimsy! For us, this adorable hanging swing not only added a touch of whimsy but made a difficult-to-decorate slanted attic space fun and functional.

   

 

2. Lighten the wood. Dark wood is great for serious spaces, but lightening it up makes things a bit more casual. 


   

 

3. Mix up materials. Rattan chairs lend a touch of casual chic style that makes any room instantly feel like a vacation.


   

 

4. Fun pillows. We love serious pillows as much as the next people, but a cute tassel and wide stripe make a space feel comfy and casual.


   

 

5. Textured lamps and shades. Pretty porcelain has its place, but these textured lamps have a handmade feel that is super cool. And natural fiber shades are a great alternative to traditional silk.


   

 

6. Casual rugs. Bright colors, bold patterns and easy fabrics combine to create rugs that are perfect for taking the formality down a notch.


   

 

7. Baskets. Baskets are one of our favorite decor elements for adding instant storage and laid-back style. 

 


 

 

8. Beanbag chairs. Nothing says “fun” like a beanbag chair. These loungers are an upgraded take on an old favorite.


   

 

9. A pretty pouf. A sweet pouf not only doubles as a footrest or extra seating but also signifies that a room doesn’t take itself too seriously.


   

 

10. Fun art. Three-dimensional art in particular brightens a room. In our playroom, surfboards got a new life as sea animals from late local artist Craig Gurganus of Fish Bouffant. These Serena & Lily mounts add a sweet touch to this room. 


Do you prefer casual spaces or more formal ones? 

In case you missed our kitchen update you can see it here!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We love it when you stop by!

But it’s a design idea that, in philosophy and practice,

is what makes Sage Design ‘s work in such good taste.

Kitchen storage is something we can never get enough of. Islands like this with plenty of space for cookbooks are always our favorites.

In Good Taste: Ham Interiors

Ham Interiors entry with Blue door

A Carolina blue door and a black lab? There’s really no better entrance if you ask us. (Although, in Henley-on-Thames, where this gorgeous door resides, we’re pretty sure it isn’t called Carolina blue.) Ham Interiors, our big time design love this week, combines classic sensibilities with stunning architecture for spaces with purpose, with style and, most important of all, with that certain undefinable something that makes a house feel like a home. Leave your wellies by the door, brew a cup of hot tea and take a peek at these cozy, livable houses that are so unforgettably chic you’ll undoubtably find yourself daydreaming about a few little changes for you own home. Enjoy!
