Good morning, chic readers! We have been so excited for months and months to tell you some really great news: I have a new book coming out April 28, 2020! I think I say this every time, but Feels Like Falling is my favorite book yet, a story of twists of fate, summer romances and the glorious things that can happen when we let go of our preconceived notions about the way life is supposed to be and allow ourselves to step into happiness. (Or, in the case of Diana and Gray, my protagonists, happily ever after, the sequel.)

 

 

Of course, a moment like this calls for celebration! And we want to celebrate with you with five days of giveaways!

More About Feels Like Falling:

Feels Like Falling

Kristy Woodson Harvey

_____________________________________

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 a new generation of readers.

 

Thank you so much to everyone for all your support and enthusiasm. I am so grateful! Stay tuned for a fun cover reveal coming up in September–and fun home tours of all the gorgeous houses in this book!

House Tour: Transformed Tudor in Tuxedo Park

Millner-Busch, Hart tudor home

Good morning, chic friends! I leaving Atlanta today heading to beautiful Charleston for The Secret to Southern Charm signings… but I have had the most amazing time in Atlanta! 

Millner-Busch, Hart tudor home

No matter where your heart lies, this fabulous home from Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles won’t disappoint! 

 tudor home entrance

Traditional elements with the right mix of modern…

 tudor home living room

Hints of glamour in all the right places…

 tudor home living room

And architectural details that accentuate at every turn…

 tudor home living room

This beautiful space is just the right kind of chic.

Tudor home kitchen

Steel doors and windows always make a stunning statement. And we just adore toning down a more formal room with a natural fiber rug.

Tudor home dining room

Upholstered dining chairs feel so cozy and welcoming. They’re a family-friendly touch in a formal dining room.

Tudor home family room

The right shade of paint makes a paneled library still feel traditional but also freshened and bright.

Tudor home kitchen

A beautiful banquette is one of our favorite parts of a breakfast room — and such a good use of space!

Tudor home kitchen

Whimsical elements tie this space together perfectly.

Tudor home bedroom

A canopy bed creates instant impact. A settee on the end of a bed is comfy but can look stuffy. This casual alternative is the ideal touch.

Tudor home bedroom

We love a chaise, but it’s not always the right look. This chair and ottoman give the style — and the comfort — in a way that’s right for the space.

Tudor home bathroom

And, of course, every gorgeous home needs an amazing soaking tub. We think this one looks heavenly! 

Thank you so much for visiting with us today. We always love getting to see you!

House Tour: Beautiful in Birmingham

home-and-garden- Birmingham

Good morning, chic readers! Birmingham, Alabama is one of our favorite southern cities, and this Birmingham House by architect James F. Carter gives us one more reason to add to the list of reasons we love this southern enclave.

gardens-Birmingham

With all the modern amenities of a brand new house,

southern-Birmingham

But the stately details that overflow with old southern charm. 

black-and-white-Birmingham

Can you get any more classic than those black and white floors?

bookshelf-Birmingham

Those stairwell areas are always hard to decorate. How many pictures do you need? How do you space a gallery wall? This bookshelf idea is totally genius!

speaking-Birmingham

Speaking of bookshelves and Alabama (and speaking of speaking…) I have the privilege of speaking at Hoover, Alabama’s Southern Voices, which is most certainly a bucket-list item of mine, Saturday, February 25.

dining-Birmingham

It will be such a privilege to present alongside some of my personal favorite authors, Rebecca Wells (the Ya-Ya Sisterhood), Chris Bohjalian, Julie Cantrell, Mary Kubica and Karen White, along with a few that I am so excited to get to know. If you’re in the area, come see us!

readers-Birmingham

I am going to go out on a limb and say that I think these homeowners might just be avid readers.

wood-Birmingham

Bookshelves in every room are the kind of statement we like to make!

paneling-Birmingham

This paneling is just exquisite. It’s hard to believe that this is a new house!

brass-Birmingham

Navy and brass is a classic color combination that we can’t get enough of. 

kitchen-Birmingham

It is perfection in the kitchen, the perfect shade to feel deep but not heavy.

hardware-Birmingham

We think one of the major characteristics that separates the old from the new is hardware. This lock makes the door look like it has been there forever!

bedroom-Birmingham

Sloping rooflines add such character.

paint-Birmingham

Did we mention charm? Oh, the charm!

nook

What a perfect little nook for working–or daydreaming. 

bathroom-Birmingham

Classic details, beautifully implemented, are always in style. We think it’s safe to say that James Carter has gorgeously good taste.

What do you think?

I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your support during these first few weeks of  The Secret to Southern Charm Book tour. My novel even became a TARGET FICTION BESTSELLER AND A BOOKSCAN NATIONAL BESTSELLER!  Thank you,  for helping to make my dreams come true, for telling your friends and writing reviews, for hosting and coming to my events . . .
