The Cover Reveal for My New Novel The Secret to Southern Charm

kristy woodson harvey

MORE ABOUT MY BOOK:

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically-acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances that proves why she is the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

Coffered Ceilings for Chic Spaces

Sometimes overlooked, often neglected, the poor ceiling doesn’t really get the credit it deserves.

We agonize over wall coverings, spend hours picking out the perfect flooring and throw rugs, but beyond a cursory coat of paint, the  ceiling is often overlooked. These gorgeous coffered ceilings are changing all of that!

Coffered ceilings are a great way to add interest to the ceiling and add another layer of style to any space.

Choosing a different color or stain for the beams and the ceiling space creates a unique look that really pops,

While painting the ceiling all one color adds dimension and depth without drawing too much attention. (And using gorgeous paneling, like in the first photo, lends a refined feel.)

These stunning ceilings make a space feel cozy and comfortable. Combined with reclaimed floors and an antique dining table in this kitchen, they add a wonderful sense of history.

Ceilings are a place where we are usually looking for height, so coffered ceilings are the perfect solution for creating a unique look without feeling like your taking up too much of that coveted ceiling height.

Beyond a basic beam, these ceilings can be created with everything from the simplest boards to the most intricate molding to add a fun architectural detail that gives the room a totally customized look.

And, as this kitchen proves, they don’t have to be totally symmetrical or uniform to be beautiful. We love how the pendant lighting hangs from the beam in this kitchen.

Along with fun fabric, unique wall coverings and the perfect backsplash, a stunning coffered ceiling is another great way to make maximum, chic impact in a kitchen. But we love them in any room! Do you have a space where you think a coffered ceiling would look great?

Thanks so much for visiting us on Design Chic today. We always love seeing you!

kristy woodson harvey

I cannot believe it, but Slightly South of Simple is a National Bestseller, hitting bestseller lists from Barnes & Noble to Bookscan, Southern Indie to Southern Pines and spending weeks on smaller bestseller lists in places like Salisbury, NC (my fab hometown and home of South Main Book Co.) and Bethlehem, PA. Sixteen weeks after its release, Slightly South is still holding its own on many of these lists. I’m pinching myself every day and can’t thank you enough for all your support! Happy weekend, sweet friends!
