Great news, Kindle readers!Slightly South of Simple is now available on Kindle Unlimited. If you haven’t started my Peachtree Bluff Series, now is the perfect time 🍑 And, oh my goodness, thank you to all who have downloaded! Slightly South has
The Huffington Post said of Slightly South: “Writers come and writers go, but Kristy Woodson Harvey is here to stay. The warmth, wit, and wisdom of this novel pave her way into the exclusive sisterhood of southern writers.” I’d love it if you checked it out!
Annie Selke has been an industry leader in luxury rugs, bedding and decor for 25 years–and they are celebrating an amazing 25 years with one of the greatest giveaways we’ve ever seen: A $25,000 shopping spree at Annie Selke and a trip!
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?)
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.
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!
The collection photographs beautifully, but in real life, it’s just the chicest thing you’ve ever seen. We’re obsessed. (If you didn’t gather that!) We’re on rugs today, but check out the bedding too. It’s so good.
Aren’t these the absolute cutest?
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.
Don’t forget to head over to Annie Selke and enter that $25,000 giveaway! And let me know in the comments if you think I should go pink or blue on that Laura Park rug. I’m so torn! Have a great day, friends!
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!

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!
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.

Happy weekend and thank you for making Design Chic a part of your day!
From older houses to brand new, Nest + Company orchestrates perfect interiors, the kind of spaces that transform houses into homes.
One of our favorite things about these designers is that their rooms feel like the kinds of places where every member of the family can feel comfortable. The mix of masculine and feminine in this room feels cozy without being prissy.
Organic shades and natural elements are always the right choice. We love that the bursts of color in this neutral breakfast room come from fruits!
Each of Nest Interiors spaces feels uncluttered and clean, exactly the way we want our homes to feel. The juxtaposition of this modern light fixture with a farm table is so charming.
Of all the spaces in our houses we love to be bright, the kitchen might be our favorite. Maybe it’s because it’s where we start our days, but we love the light streaming in. These original hardwood floors add character galore and give this home a sense of history, despite its modern facelift.
Talk about a view! Wow! This kitchen takes advantage of every inch of spectacular water vista. This kitchen is chic enough to stand alone but simple enough to let the views be the main event.
But these designers are far from one note. Vivid pops of color and whimsical pattern infuse this kitchen with family friendly style.
Simplicity steals the show in this comfy reading nook–and makes a strong case for utilizing the perfect house plant. We love everything about this!
A comfy porch that lets the breeze in is exactly what we need this fall! It’s the perfect season for opening the windows and savoring the breeze. This space is instantly calming.
Layered rugs are a cozy way to really define a space. Speaking of great floors, we’re loving the painted hardwoods we can see in the adjoining bedroom!
This little boy’s bedroom is nothing short of adorable but still in the tone of the rest of Nest + Company’s flawless designs.
A mudroom is, to us, one of home’s great luxuries! It’s a simple spot that keeps the rest of the house looking incredibly chic and clutter free to show off all that hard design work!
Thank you so much for stopping by today, chic readers. We hope you loved Nest + Company’s good taste as much as we did!
Good morning, our chic friends! We hope you had a fabulous weekend. I had the best time doing speaking events for Slightly South of Simple at Sky Valley Country Club, Highlands Country Club and the Atlanta Mart. It was a great way to spend a birthday weekend, meeting readers–and eating way too much cake!
If there’s any time that’s perfect for a little remodel, it’s summer.
It’s a great time to get away, of course, but the best part about getting away is being reminded how wonderful it is to come back home!
Whether you’re looking to spruce your year round home or create the perfect summer nest, Best Prices for Furniture is one of our very favorite places to purchase all of the fabulous essentials we need to transform our homes for the season.
From the shore to the mountains and everywhere in between just a touch of Scalamandre fabric sets the tone for a room. This leopard is a neutral we absolutely adore.
Nothing says summer like a bright and beautiful master bedroom. Plenty of pillows and a few chic end tables and accessories create the perfect look.
Forget a cat nap… This is summer dreaming at its finest!
Nothing changes a space instantly quite like a fresh coat of paint or new wallpaper. Best Prices for Furniture can help you find that Schumacher paper you’ve been pining for at the very best price.
Whether you want to go a little more modern or feel like adding a bit of glamour, this favorite NC-based company can find you the pieces you want at the prices you can’t beat.
When it comes to the summer spruce, nothing is more important than outdoor spaces. Whether you’re looking for one statement piece to define a patio or an entire new porch scheme, Best Prices for Furniture has everything you need to create the summer look you’ve been dreaming of!
Are there any summer projects you’ve been thinking of tackling?
