​Two childhood friends discover that love—and family—can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” (Kristin Harmel, NYT bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names).

Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.

Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.

Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Cape Carolina. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.

These spaces by Meredith Ellis Design have all the trappings of the kinds of places we want to spend our days and nights right now.

Deep, moody blues create the perfect work space,

10 Favorite Rooms with Stylish Storage

One of our favorite parts of the holiday season is the more is more approach.

Decorations everywhere, lights on every surface, the tree filling what was once a blank space.

But one of our favorite things about the New Year is putting it all away, clearing all the clutter to begin a streamlined new year with only what we need.

If you’re already looking ahead to the new year, you’ll absolutely love the stylish storage in these gorgeous rooms designed by Studio McGee.

 

 

From pretty storage jars and beautiful built-ins,

To kid-friendly bookcases and containers, to baskets of all shapes and sizes, there’s the perfect storage solution for every space.

After almost fifteen months of being out of our house from Hurricane Florence, words can’t express how relieved we are to just be home. But, needless to say, after six moves and four rental houses, our stuff is everywhere. If there was ever a year for organization, this is it! As we focus on finally beginning our addition and reconfiguration of our upstairs in January, let’s just say that closet space, the laundry room and an organized office and mudroom are top priorities!

In the meantime, we’ll be making the most of what we have with these helpful tips from one of our most favorite design studios–and reveling in the glitter, the tinsel and the tissue paper everywhere. After all, it only comes one time a year…

In Good Taste: Humphrey Munson Handmade Kitchens

 

Pasta. Pottery. Presents.

 

 

Everything is better when it’s handmade. 

 

 

Including the most important–and often most used–room in the house. 

 

 

The kitchen, of course. 

 

 

These Humphrey Munson kitchens take “custom” to the next level, employing only the finest hard woods, natural stones and high end appliances in their stunning spaces. And it goes without saying that every member of the team is masterful.

 

 

The result? A truly bespoke kitchen that focuses on meeting every single need, from storage with style and stability, 

 

 

To a practical and beautiful pantry where everything is right at eye level. 

 

 

Food storage has never ever looked this good. 

 

 

From butler’s pantries that wow, 

 

 

To china storage that keeps everything right where you can see it,

 

 

Every facet of the Humphrey Munson experience is well thought out and fabulously functional. (Ladders are one of our favorite accessories!)

 

 

Beautiful mudrooms where everything has a place might very well be one of the foundations for a neat and tidy kitchen–and entire house, really.

 

 

And each ounce of cabinetry and woodwork–whether it’s in the light and bright of the kitchen or dark of the back hallway, is utter perfection. Do you love these handmade spaces as much as we do?

Things We Love: Luxe Laundry Rooms

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had a terrific 4th of July holiday and found a little time for resting and playing!

Holiday weekends are always so fun. What’s less fun is catching up on all the things we put off doing during them… like laundry.

 

Of course, the laundry doesn’t have to feel like such a chore, not when the laundry room can easily become one of the most stunning rooms in the house!

laundry room with black and white tile
Studio McGee| Lucy Call Photography

 

A few simple design elements like fabulous tile and paint can transform a laundry room into a fun and whimsical space that makes doing the laundry just a little more fun.

 

A punch of color adds lots of life to this laundry area. And black and white tile are a forever favorite. 

Whether you have lots of space or just a little, a few simple touches can help transform the laundry room from a bleak, dull space to somewhere that makes laundry time just a little more fun! Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We hope you have a great one!

What design bloggers are saying about Slightly South of Simple

“Kristy captures the voices of a mother and 3 grown daughters in an authentic way. I would describe Slightly South of Simple as a sunny day at the beach, with a few menacing, cloudy twists.  I’m glad to hear this magnetic read is the first of a series on this family of strong, independent women, landing again in Peach Tree Bluff. I loved it!” —Heather, Style Mind Chic 

Things We Love: Blonde Wood in Every Room

We don’t know if it’s true that blondes have more fun. (Although, as a lifelong blonde, I could made a strong case for it!) But we’re pretty sure, if these gorgeous homes are any indication, that blonde wood make a house more fun. We’ve never seen anything quite like these blonde wood pendants! They are incredible and blend so well with the bar stools. Can we talk about these vases too? All we know is that we want them!

Hardwoods are obviously a perfect choice for kitchen style. We love them in a variety of shades, but we think a lighter flooring choice feels casual and fun. What do you think?

From bright bold, shades….

To more subdued tones or neutrals, every color pairs well with blonde wood!

Shiny and fresh or raw and rustic, we love blonde wood any old way! Are you a fan?

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! We love our readers!
