I am over-the-moon about my first starred review from Publishers Weekly! Can’t wait for all of you to read Under the Southern Sky on April 20! It’s available for preorder now wherever books are sold.
From PW: Harvey (Feels Like Falling) delivers a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss in this tearjerker…Harvey brings her characters to life, including Greer, whose heartbreaking journal entries reflect on scans of the embryos and imagine the family she and Parker would have. These passages are particularly wrenching, making the book’s happy ending all the more moving. Fans of women’s fiction will devour this. (Apr.)
If you’re looking for the perfect oasis, look no further than this gorgeous lake house on Alabama’s Lake Martin designed by the talented Liz Williams. But what’s outside, designed by the owners themselves just may even be better! Take a break, take a peek, and let us know which space is your favorite!
We love how simple this kitchen is. You can never go wrong with black, white and a touch of natural fiber.
It took us a while to warm up to the idea, but we are now big fans of mixing metals. This kitchen is case and point!
These pendants are perfection.
Speaking of pendants, this is one of our favorites. It’s even more stunning in real life!
Saarinen tables are always a favorite. Sleek, modern and totally functional, they’re a great pick for a breakfast room, especially one that isn’t huge.
The right combination of high and low, rustic and modern, this gorgeous bathroom is the perfect mix of favorite elements blended together in just the right way.
A great wallpaper can totally make a bathroom. We love the vintage feel of this marble sink. The simplicity of these fixtures is a perfect complement to the fun wallpaper. All in all, we think you’ll agree that the work of Park and Oak is in good taste. Which is your favorite room?
We hope you’re having a great day and staying warm!

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).
Good morning, chic readers! Are you in full-on Thanksgiving hysteria yet? We are getting so excited, and, okay, truth time: We pulled out the Christmas playlist on Amazon Music today. (If you haven’t listened to the Train Christmas album, you totally should!) So, yeah, it will be 71 degrees tomorrow, and the turkey hasn’t even been bought yet much less cooked, but what’s the harm in breaking our no-Christmas-music-until-after-Thanksgiving rule? It’s not like we’ve already bought the tree…
While you’re putting the finishing touches on your Thanksgiving grocery list, check out this fabulous house tour from the beyond amazing Cloth and Kind. It’s the perfect home, holiday or not!
Built-in bookcases are one of our favorite features in any home. The addition of the brass library lamps takes the look over the top!
A blue island is the perfect pop in an otherwise white kitchen. It adds so much dimension.
A teeny vignette becomes a focal point with the addition of this beautiful rug and distressed piece of furniture.
There’s nothing better than starting and finishing the day in the sunniest spot in the house!
There’s no doubt about it: Fall is in the air. It’s still 85 degrees here on the Carolina coast, but there’s something about the air here that starts to get a little clearer that makes us know it will be here soon. The pumpkins everywhere don’t hurt either!
