House Tour: Penthouse in Buckhead

We don’t like to play favorites, but, well, we’re only human.

And every single time, without fail, that we discover a new Suzanne Kasler project, it’s love at first sight.

(She’s also really nice, so that doesn’t hurt her standing in our hearts!)

A penthouse is kind of the dream, right?

Being on the top of the world with the most beautiful view

It isn’t ever easy finding the right spot–and finding the best person to bring your vision to life can be a challenge in and of itself. But, when this Atlanta couple found their dream Pied-à-Terre in Buckhead, they already knew their dream designer since Kasler had designed their Sea Island home.

And create a dream apartment, she did.

A bright, airy color palette and open-but-not-too-open floor plan combine to create a stunning pied-à-terre that feels like home.

Each beautiful detail combines seamlessly to create a modern space perfect for entertaining or simply getting away.

We think we saved the best for last… Isn’t this bathroom dreamy? What is your favorite space?

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.

Happy Monday, chic readers! We hope you had an amazing weekend. Today, we are channeling fall (even though it was 93 degrees yesterday) and celebrating a touch of black

Nothing grounds a room and creates chic contrast quite like the right amount of black.

From black cabinetry, molding and trim contrasted with white furnishings,

To black-lined cabinets that add a hint of the hue,

To stunning neutral spaces with just a touch of the color that every single room must have a hint of, a touch of black is one our favorite ways to create instant style in a home.

A grand piano might the ultimate, of course–especially if you can actually play it–

But something unexpected like these ceiling details is equally as incredible.

To a charming screen door, every space is better with a touch of black! Do you agree that every room needs a bit of this favorite shade?

House Tour: Ansley’s House – Peachtree Bluff

Peachtree Bluff entrance hall with arch

 

Good morning, chic readers! Thanks for all you did yesterday to make the launch of my fifth novel, The Southern Side of Paradise, so amazing! I am overwhelmed by all the book love!

 

The Southern Side of Paradise - Peachtree Bluff dining room

 

If you’re new to my Peachtree Bluff Series, you should know that my protagonist, Ansley Murphy, is a designer in a tiny, Southern coastal town on the Georgia coast. 

 

The Southern Side of Paradise- Peachtree Bluff living room

 

Fictional Peachtree Bluff is full of gorgeous historic homes–made even more beautiful by Ansley’s trained hand and skilled eye. 

 

Peachtree Bluff living room

 

One of the most fun parts of writing for me imagining what the homes in my novels would look like. Ansley’s is that perfect combination of old and new, traditional and modern. 

 

Peachtree bluff kitchen

 

We imagine that she gets a lot of her design inspiration from a real-life Georgia design icon: Suzanne Kasler

 

kitchen

 

Full of soothing blues and crisp whites, 

 

family room with  beams

 

Stunning architectural details and great views, 

 

bedroom with canopy bed

 

Suzanne’s work is totally exquisite and positively timeless.

 

bathroom Peachtree Bluff

 

We can imagine Ansley retiring to a tub just like this after a long day of dealing with the drama of the three grown daughters back under her roof. (And bathing her young grandsons in it too!)

 

blue and white bedroom with beams

 

This beautiful bedroom with its charming sitting nook is the perfect place for Ansley to have one of her signature, brilliant mom talks with one of her struggling daughters. (In The Southern Side of Paradise, there’s a pretty good chance it would be Emerson!)

 

bedroom with beams

 

And this vibrant, cozy space would be perfect for middle daughter Sloane. (Right down to the “S”!)

 

bedroom sitting area with hanging swing

 

Bright colors and a whimsical hanging chair add the perfect touches of coastal fun. 

 

porch overlooking the ocean

 

If you’ve “been” to Peachtree Bluff in Slightly South of Simple, The Secret to Southern Charm or The Southern Side of Paradise, you know that the porches are the most important part of the homes there. Ansley’s house is no different. If you’ve read the series, is this what you imagined Ansley’s house to look like?

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).
