House Tour: Greenwich Village Brownstone

Greenwich Village Brownstone living room

Manhattan is one of our most favorite places to visit. And, in honor of our upcoming trip, we thought we’d tour this fabulous Greenwich Village home designed by the uber-talented Katie Martinez Design.

These simple iron curtain rods and white drapes are the perfect frame for these bright, light-filled windows.

Gorgeous architectural details like the ones in this apartment should be celebrated. The art choices add so much style!

Greenwich Village Brownstone kitchen

We’re big fans of mixing metals, and copper pendants are oh-so chic.

This open floor plan makes the space live so large. Breakfast bars are one of our favorite features in any home.

It goes without saying that these marble counters and backsplash are positively luscious. The pulls and faucets are just the icing on the cake.

Little nooks are some of our favorite parts of any home. The piano by the staircase is amazing, especially if the sound coming out of it is as pretty as it is!

Subway tile is always great. When it’s marble subway tile? We can barely think of anything better! Everything about this Greenwich home is simply stunning. Thanks so much for taking a tour of it with us!

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 and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).
