We all know what matters most when it comes to real estate: location, location, location.

And this Lake Martin beauty has the perfect location all wrapped up. (I mean, just look at that view!)

But, lucky for us, the location is just the beginning! Wide plank floors… Stone accents… That free-standing staircase…

The magic is in the details, and the details here are too good to be true!

In case you missed it the first time… That staircase!! We’re full-on obsessed!

This lovely stoop beckons visitors inside, and the planter and bench are in perfect keeping with the tone of this spectacular home with the right amount of cabin feel.

Stone accents indoors and out create a perfect flow…

And, again with the view!! Make this as big as it will go on your screen, grab your coffee and a good book (My new Under the Southern Sky, if you haven’t read it yet, pretty please!) and savor for as long as you want. 

 

 

There’s nothing we love more than a kitchen we can admire–but don’t have to cook in…

Or a huge glass shower we can study but never have to clean! We don’t know about you, but just touring this charming vacation spot has left us feeling refreshed and invigorated. And the best part? You can visit again any time you like!

Need a Memorial Day Read? Check out Nature.Books.And.Coffee’s Review of my Instant USA Today Bestseller, Feels Like Falling:

“Feels Like Falling” by Kristy Woodson Harvey @kristywharvey was a definite 5⭐!!… This story has a dual POV, alternating between Gray and Diana. Gray just lost her mother to cancer!  She is the CEO of her company and recently split from her husband who cheated on her. She goes to spend the summer at the North Carolina shore. Diana who loses her job at the pharmacy has just broke up with her boyfriend, moved out of their shared apartment and planning to just live in her car! Just so happens, Gray has a spare guest house and offers Diana to stay there. These 2 , very different women truly Bond and help each other through the hard times in their life. They learn so much about themselves, and what really matters in life! I loved both characters!! This story was sweet, dealing with love, loss, romance, motherhood, and life!! This truly was a perfect beach read. A very endearing, positive read.

In Good Taste: Barbara Westbrook Interior Design

Good morning, chic readers. We hope your week is off to a wonderful start. We don’t know about you, but we are dreaming of Memorial Day. All those white dresses and seersucker suits, not to mention sunshine and pool time. 

Barbara Westbrook living room

Here, there’s a big band party and dinner to mark the occasion, not to mention cookouts and beach time, boating, a parade. We know it’s not the official start of summer, but it feels that way all the same.

Barbara Westbrook living room

This bright, airy room feels perfect for summer and is the epitome of Barbara Westbrook’s good taste. The perfectly worn rug and those welcoming Carolina blue shutters might be our favorite parts… Although it’s hard to choose, isn’t it?

Barbara Westbrook dining

Dining rooms often feel too open to us, a little bit empty and formal. This one is as warm and welcoming as the friends we can imagine around it!

 

Rustic beams, wood cabinets and dark floors make this kitchen feel cozy and intimate, the perfect place for a long chat over a good cup of coffee.

Barbara Westbrook kitchen

Wide plank floors have to be one of the best kitchen flooring options of all time. Whether a house is old or new they add that instant feeling of history and age–the graceful kind, of course.

Barbara Westbrook kitchen

This is the inspiration photo dream kitchens are made of! Plenty of room for food prep, storage, setting a fabulous table… This kitchen has it all! 

Barbara Westbrook kitchen

For large kitchens, we adore this double island look. One for eating, one for food prep. It’s perfect!

 

Barbara Westbrook bathroom

Black and white is one of our favorite color combos, of course. Shades of gray only up the ante!

Barbara Westbrook bathroom

We’ve always loved a little glamour in the bathroom. Pretty metallics and an accent chandelier fit the bill perfectly. 

Barbara Westbrook porch

This is exactly what we were talking about! The kind of scene Memorial Days were made for. 

Wishing you a little sand in your toes–and a copy of Slightly South of Simple in your hand–this Memorial Day weekend!

What Design Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“I have to rave a little bit about Kristy Woodson Harvey’s books…they have honestly turned into my favorite books to curl up with and just get lost in. I recently just read her newest book, Slightly South of Simple {click here to see review} and I was captivated by the character relationships that develop throughout the story, how I was able to relate to the characters, and be transported to a different state through her writing. All of Harvey’s books just ooze with southern charm, emotion, and interesting family dynamics.” –Lauren, A Touch of Southern Grace
