When Rugs Make the Room

We all have them, those favorite, go-to stores that we think of automatically when we’re looking to spruce up a little. For us, one of those companies is Annie Selke

So, we’re finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel for getting the Beaufort house back in order. (If you’re new here, Hurricane Florence had an extensive party at our house in 2018.)

We were in various rental houses for one year and seven days, but who’s counting?

So now we have rugs, in particular, on the brain. They are such a huge part of a room’s overall look and feel, the very foundation, really. They’re a great place to start when you’re stumped!

If you know anything about Bunny Williams, who has a great line for Annie Selke, you probably know that she’s all about the dogs!

Her indoor/outdoor collection is pet-friendly and oh-so-lovely.

When we think of fun striped rugs, we think of another Annie Selke brand, Dash & Albert. From the big to the teeny tiny, they’re our go-to.

But there are just so many great options! It’s hard to decide where to begin.  

 

 

But begin we did. Y’all, for real. The Laura Park Collection is TO DIE. And the new rug we chose for our dining room is called the Chapel HillSince I’m a Carolina girl, what could be more appropriate?

The collection photographs beautifully, but in real life, it’s just the chicest thing you’ve ever seen. The colors are amazing and we’re obsessed. (If you didn’t gather that!)

No one does outdoor rugs better than Annie Selke. The patterns are stunning and the quality and feel is so very normal, not plasticky at all.

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’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.

So, we’re beginning to see a very long and far away light at the end of a still fairly long tunnel for getting back in the Beaufort house. (If you’re new here, Hurricane Florence had an extensive party at our house in 2018. We’ve been in various rental houses for one year and seven days, but who’s counting?)

Y’all, for real. This Laura Park Collection is TO DIE. When we get back in our house (if ever) this rug is 100% going in my office. It is so fun and gorgeous. I’m torn between the pink and the blue, so votes are appreciated. On the one hand, it’s kind of the only place I can have pink in a house of boys, but, on the other, I’m a Tarheel… So is Laura, come to think of it!

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey

Donations for Hurricane Dorian

Just a quick note: From September 13 until September 20, I am going to be donating 100% of my proceeds from preorders of Feels Like Falling to the Red Cross to help hurricane victims both in the Bahamas and locally here in NC. Simply order from your bookstore of choice and email me at [email protected] to let me know so I can donate for you!

If you have $15 lying around and you want to do something with it, by all means, please donate it to the hurricane. But if you were going to order Feels Like Falling anyway, let’s join forces to help out together!

Feels Like Falling a Beach Read by Kristy Woodson Harvey

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. 

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her evangelical husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a busted Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn, but when the one that got away comes back, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

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.
