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.

Kitchen Makeover in Time for the Holidays

kitchen stools with Serena & Lily

 

It is amazing how the tiniest details can totally transform a room. A bar stool... A chic centerpiece… A fun rug... We have to say that all of these adorable pieces from Serena & Lily completely changed our kitchen! 

 

kitchen stools with Serena & Lily

 

To say that we had been pining for these Riviera Bar Stools is probably an understatement. They added just the right amount of coastal chic, texture and pattern to our white kitchen. 

 

kitchen stools with Serena & Lily

 

Another game changer? This darling runner! We were perfectly content with plain hardwoods until we saw how much more finished and cozy the house looked this rug. And the  stool is not only a chic, teak accent, but will also help my little one wash his hands! 

 

kitchen stools with Serena & Lily

 

Truth be told, we eat at our kitchen bar almost as much as our dining room table. The details on this Serena & Lily tray make it a beautiful focal point–and it’s as functional as it is pretty! Simple, pretty napkins are a perfect finishing touch. 

 

before and after with Serena & Lily

 

Just for fun… This is what the kitchen looked like on Tuesday at 4 pm before the photo shoot on Wednesday! A lot of you probably know that this house had to be completely gutted after Hurricane Florence in September 2018, and, full disclosure, the rest of the house is a total construction site! But just to see this one room come together was a huge light at the end the tunnel. Big, huge thanks to Serena & Lily for getting us in gear!

 

For more inspiration, check out our bedroom makeover with Serena & Lily here.  Fingers crossed that one day soon this room will look like this again!

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.

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!

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

Things We Love: Adding History to the Bath

Good morning, Design Chicers! It is 5 days until the Christmas and we couldn’t be more excited! We’re getting our guest rooms and baths prepared for family.  Brockway sink in bathroom with subway tile

And we think a large cast iron sink would be there perfect accent to add charm, character and history to any bath.  Sometimes there’s really no need to reinvent the wheel.

When you’ve got a good thing going, why not stick with it?

Cast iron sinks have been around almost as long as bathrooms themselves, and their enduring style and timeless attitude is a playful nod to the past, one that Ansley, the interior designer protagonist in The Peachtree Bluff Series  would love as she redesigns the historic homes in her town of Peachtree Bluff, Georgia.

Cast iron sinks come in as many styles as their are bathrooms.

In playful colors that are perfect for kids’ bathrooms,

And hearty, functional design that complements other bathroom stones, metals and textures, these old favorites can easily be dressed up or dressed down to suit any space.

There are so many ways to style these sinks!

From brightly colored to simple white, cast iron sinks add an immediate charm to any bathroom. Have you ever lived in a house with a cast iron sink?
