When it comes to interiors, we all know that the fundamentals, the place where it all begins, set the tone for an entire house. Tim Barber, Ltd Architecture creates stunning spaces that feel like home.

Every tiny decision goes far beyond simple storage and, instead, dictates the feel of the heart of the home,

And window placement is, to us, one of the most paramount parts of any home’s overall look.

Have you ever seen a sink quite so stunning? We love how the tile complements it!

If architectural design is important in interiors, when it comes to exteriors, it’s paramount.

The right architect can create exactly the kind of home that becomes a family retreat and safe haven for generations to come. That’s why we think the work of Tim Barber, Ltd. is always in good taste


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



Feels like falling


Looking for a good book to carry you into fall? I’d love it if you checked out one of mine: Dear Carolina, Lies and Other Acts of Love, The Peachtree Bluff Series (Slightly South of Simple, The Secret to Southern Charm, The Southern Side of Paradise) or Feels Like Falling.



And I’m so excited that my seventh novel, Under the Southern Sky, will be releasing April 20, 2021 and is available for preorder now. The cover will be revealed September 23, so mark your calendar!



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!

Great news, Kindle readers! Slightly South of Simple is now available on Kindle Unlimited. If you haven’t started my Peachtree Bluff Series, now is the perfect time 🍑 And, oh my goodness, thank you to all who have downloaded! Slightly South is 

still #1 in Southern Fiction.

The Huffington Post said of Slightly South: “Writers come and writers go, but Kristy Woodson Harvey is here to stay. The warmth, wit, and wisdom of this novel pave her way into the exclusive sisterhood of southern writers.” I’d love it if you checked it out!



In Good Taste:Park and Oak Design

Even their name conjures good feelings. Park and Oak Design. It sounds like a firm that brings the outdoors in. That creates simple yet beautiful design schemes that feel totally livable.

It’s kind of like judging a book by its cover. You’re really not supposed to but, sometimes, the cover does give you a really accurate glimpse into what the book is about.

In this case, we judged a firm by its name. And like that book cover, it did give us a pretty accurate glimpse into what was to come.

If we had to pick one word to describe Oak and Park Design, we think we’d choose… airy. (It’s hard to choose one word, especially when you’re used to getting 85,000 to describe things.)

There’s a minimalistic air about this firm’s work that we find incredibly appealing and totally refreshing.

A modern streak runs through all of these designs that pairs well with traditional touches.

And you know how we love our subway tile!

We love how simple this kitchen is. You can never go wrong with black, white and a touch of natural fiber.

It took us a while to warm up to the idea, but we are now big fans of mixing metals. This kitchen is case and point!

These pendants are perfection.

Speaking of pendants, this is one of our favorites. It’s even more stunning in real life!

Saarinen tables are always a favorite. Sleek, modern and totally functional, they’re a great pick for a breakfast room, especially one that isn’t huge.

The right combination of high and low, rustic and modern, this gorgeous bathroom is the perfect mix of favorite elements blended together in just the right way.

A great wallpaper can totally make a bathroom. We love the vintage feel of this marble sink. The simplicity of these fixtures is a perfect complement to the fun wallpaper. All in all, we think you’ll agree that the work of Park and Oak is in good taste. Which is your favorite room?

We hope you’re having a great day and staying warm!
