10 Favorite Thanksgiving-Ready Kitchens

Good morning, chic readers! Do you have a Thanksgiving-ready kitchen yet?

 I bought my turkey tonight, and it’s thawing in the fridge as we speak.

Truth be told, we’re eating out this year. We’re not quite back in our house yet, but are already looking forward to hosting the crew around our own table next year. We’re super lucky that both sides of the family love each other, so everyone comes to us! (Another reason to live at the beach if you need one.)

 

So why the turkey? Leftovers, of course! (You can’t have a Thanksgiving-ready fridge without leftovers!) I love the ease of eating out for Thanksgiving but hate not having delicious turkey to nibble on and make sandwiches with the rest of the week. 

 

Crazy? Maybe.

But, on the bright side, it will ensure that I get my Thanksgiving-ready kitchen, even if it is just at a rental house.

Whether you’re planning to cook all day and reap the rewards of your efforts, 

 

 

Or simply catch up with friends and family afterwards, there’s no time like the present to make sure you have a Thanksgiving-ready home. Happy celebrating friends. We are grateful for YOU this year!

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).

House Tour: Cloth and Kind

 

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!

 

We love hot pink in any space…

 

And beautiful blues too, of course. 

 

There’s no space we love more than a window seat, especially when the weather gets cooler and we draw closer to home. 

 

Double sinks provide plenty of space for getting ready…

 

And a soaking tub creates a spa-like retreat. 

 

Just add a Turkish towel!

 

A playful child’s room is such a delight,

 

And a darling basin sink creates plenty of space for multiple kids to get ready for school.

 

Isn’t it amazing? We love Cloth and Kind’s use of color, pattern and texture–even on the porch. 

Thank you so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!

_____________

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 and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

In Good Taste: Shelley Johnstone Design

screenshot-2016-10-31-09-21-26

After weeks of high sixties and mid-seventies temperatures here, it has finally gotten cold. We’ll never quite understand North Carolina weather, how it is seventy-five and then, all of a sudden, with no warning, you wake up and it’s thirty-two and it stays that way for months. But, it actually makes us kind of excited, the cold weather.
