Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We love seeing you here!

I am so excited for my first ever Publisher’s Weekly Review! Check it out. And, don’t forget, it’s never too early to preorder!

Feels Like Falling Kristy Woodson Harvey. Gallery, $16 trade paper (400p) ISBN 978-1-9821-1770-2 https://www.publishersweekly.com/978-1-9821-1770-2Harvey (The Southern Side of Paradise) serves up a tale of disaster-turned serendipity in the fictional Cape Carolina, N.C. Successful businesswoman Gray Howard begrudgingly promotes her husband to CFO of her marketing company, ClickMarket, only for him to leave her for the assistant she hired for him. Reeling from a painful, cash-draining divorce, she inadvertently causes Diana, a photo developer at a pharmacy, to lose her job by complaining about her work. After learning this, Gray hires Diana to work as a housekeeper. Over time, the women vent about their lives and forge a friendship that heals them both. The story alternates between Gray’s voice and Diana’s, delving into Diana’s past heartaches and lost hope for having a child. In pitch-perfect tones, Harvey creates two Southern women doing their best to deal with everything life throws at them, and her able plotting will keep readers turning the pages. Secondary characters—Gray’s witty assistant, Trey; her new, younger boyfriend, Andrew; and Diana’s fiercely loyal friend group—add charm. Harvey’s optimistic tale just might convince readers that bouncing back can actually land a person in a better place than where they started. Agent: Elisabeth Weed, the Book Group. (Apr.)

inside Feels Like Falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey

My next novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING, releases April 28, 2020! I can’t wait to share this tale of Gray and Diana, their unlikely friendship, their summer loves and their chance at happily ever after, the sequel, with all of you. It has already been named a most anticipated read of 2020 by Parade, Working Mother and SheKnows! It’s never too early to preorder from your favorite local bookstore or online retailer!

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.

Things We Love: Smart & Stylish Mudrooms

 Smart & Stylish Mudrooms from Curtis & Windham

Mudrooms are one of our absolute favorite parts of a home. We love the idea of having a place that we can drop all of our things and keep the house looking neat and tidy.

 Smart & Stylish Mudrooms - Aliberg Parker Architects

So much so that we are going to add one to our house. We have a big space right by the back door, perfect for creating the ultimate storage area. So we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what exactly we want to achieve out of this space.

The absolute non-negotiable is big, deep drawers for dropping beach bags, purses and all sorts of various and sundry things that tend to collect by the back door.

And, because there is so much vertical space, we definitely plan on taking advantage with little cubbies up top for baskets. You can never have enough baskets!

We love having grasscloth for the backdrop. It adds so much character!

We love pretty doors but are afraid that putting too many of them in the area will make it feel closed–it’s kind of narrow. So we’ll probably just include one to hide the electrical panel and store brooms, mops, etc.

 

What a beautiful, calming area right by the back door.
