House Tour: Penthouse in Buckhead

We don’t like to play favorites, but, well, we’re only human.

And every single time, without fail, that we discover a new Suzanne Kasler project, it’s love at first sight.

A penthouse is kind of the dream, right?

It isn’t ever easy finding the right spot–and finding the best person to bring your vision to life can be a challenge in and of itself. But, when this Atlanta couple found their dream Pied-à-Terre in Buckhead, they already knew their dream designer since Kasler had designed their Sea Island home.

And create a dream apartment, she did.

A bright, airy color palette and open-but-not-too-open floor plan combine to create a stunning pied-à-terre that feels like home.

Each beautiful detail combines seamlessly to create a modern space perfect for entertaining or simply getting away.

We think we saved the best for last… Isn’t this bathroom dreamy? What is your favorite space?

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey Beach house book
 

I am so excited that my new novel Feels Like Falling releases on April 28!

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.

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

House Tour: A Beverly Hills Pied-à-Terre

Who couldn’t use a little getaway? We know we could!

This luxurious Beverly Hills pied-à-terre designed by the talented John De Bastiani  has everything anyone would need for a quick escape from the stresses of outside world.

This spacious, chic living room is a perfect place for entertaining guests in style, which is absolutely essential, of course.

Plenty of light makes it feel spacious and open–and a bit of outdoor space is such a bonus.

A not-too-big, not-too-small galley kitchen is perfect for whipping up a comforting meal, glass of wine in hand…

And sharing your creation with friends!

Every pied-à-terre must have a cozy spot for catching up on that ever-growing “To Be Read” list or Netflix queue. 

And a desk at the getaway is absolutely essential for keeping up on correspondence. You have to send invitations and keep everyone up to date on what a fabulous time you’re having, after all!

A master retreat, a sanctuary from the real world, is beyond necessary for catching up on some much-needed sleep. 

And a beautiful balcony ensures that fresh air and sunshine are never in short supply. We absolutely love this Beverly Hills pied-à-terre and could move right in. If you were going to snag a chic getaway spot, where would yours be?

 

I will be in Pinehurst, NC tomorrow as the speaker for the annual Neighbors of Pinehurst Book Club Luncheon. If you’d like a personalized copy of Slightly South of Simple, Lies and Other Acts of Love or Dear Carolina for yourself or for a holiday gift for a loved one, call The Country Book Shop at  910.692.3211, and I’ll be happy to personalize for you. Or preorder The Secret to Southern Charm! Signed copies will also be available through The Country Bookshop’s website

An Art Filled Atlanta Pied-a-Terre

Good morning, chic readers from here in Hoschton, Georgia! The Slightly South of Simple tour is off to a terrific start. I am thrilled to be here today at Deaton Creek to talk to a fabulous group of writing, downsizing and creating a life you love.

living room

I’ll be in Atlanta later on the in tour (May 6 at Boxwoods at 11 am). In the spirit of Georgia, Slightly South of Simple’s setting, we thought we’d tour this fabulous Atlanta home by Barbara Westbrook and Elizabeth Hanson of Westbrook Interiors today.

dining room

Atlanta is one of our favorite cities because it combines the best parts of a big city and a small southern town.

And, whether it’s a traditional home and yard with a picket fence or high rise city living you’re looking for, Atlanta offers both in style!

dining nook

This gorgeous Atlanta pied-a-terre has a view as beautiful as its interior.

We love the clean, uncluttered, streamlined look of this entire home.

master bedroom

It’s luxurious without being overdone or stuffy.

And glamorous while still being livable.

sitting room with abstract art

This home even has its own master bedroom sitting area! Does it get any better?

dressing room

A hand-drawn Prunus pattern on glazed silk paper by Fromental defines this gorgeous vanity area. It makes a soft and elegant statement.

A Phillip Jeffries floral wallpaper in the half bath is a little bolder.

This black and white bedroom proves that, when done right, a smaller bedroom can feel spacious, chic and fabulous for guests! Thanks so much for stopping by today to tour this Atlanta stunner!
