Like a book with no words…

Or a song with no melody…

Gorgeous design is impossible to display without stunning photography

Chris Luker is absolutely brilliant at portraying lovely designs at their best.

Luker brings beautiful design to life.

Every picture tells an unforgettable story that we want to read again and again. 

Speaking of Stories…

My sixth novel, Feels Like Falling, releases one week from today! Parade, Working Mother and SheReads called it one of the most anticipated reads of 2020, Frolic and Get Literary want you to read it for Spring, Mary Kay Andrews picked it for her 2020 reading challenge–and called it “your next summer sizzler”–and the Southern Independent Booksellers Association awarded it an “Okra Pick,” meaning they want to hand sell it all season long! 

Pick up your copy at your favorite local bookstore, Bookshop.org, Amazon or wherever books or sold.

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, 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.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll probably say it again: Fabulous furnishings are nothing without stunning photography. Perfectly filled bookcases look off balance, ideally proportioned chairs look too small… The list goes on and on and on. But, in the hands of a skilled professional, each room looks just as chicly amazing as it does in real life–and in the mind of the designer who dreamed it.

This is undoubtedly a tricky space to style. We never would have put this together, but it’s fabulous!

The femininity of the furnishings pair beautifully with more masculine dark wood and horns. Perfect for every member of the family!

Gold and silver mix so well in this kitchen. This is statement lighting at its finest. And that range hood? So good!

We love everything about this kitchen! Isn’t that tiny desk the best use of space? And the wine becomes a decoration. So lovely!

We would never have thought to put a pendant in a bedroom, but it works so well in this spot. It’s cozy and charming.

What a fun way to learn your numbers! This bedroom is too, too adorable!

This soaking tub pairs extraordinarily with these beautiful rugs.

The juxtaposition of the raw wood ceiling with the crystal chandelier is gorgeous. The entire space makes a one-of-a-kind statement.

And, thanks to the lens of Alyssa Roseheck Photography that captured it all so well, we are sure you agree. We hope your day is wonderful!
