In Good Taste: Heidi Caillier

Heidi Caillier gray kitchen

 

Good morning, chic readers! I am celebrating today because my sixth book, FEELS LIKE FALLING (Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books), releases exactly three months from today! (More on that–and a fun offer–below.)

 

Heidi Caillier gray kitchen with brass hardware

 

I know I’ve said this before, but I’ve always been a huge fan of Tuesdays. As a kid, that was because new episodes of Full House came out on Tuesdays and Mom let me stay up until 8:30 to watch, which was a big deal!

 

 

Now, it’s because Tuesday always means featuring a new or favorite designer in all his or her glory. (And new books always release on Tuesdays, too, so that’s fun.)

Today we are so excited to showcase the gorgeous taste of Heidi Caillier.

With this designer, every little space is a chance to look–and then look again–to capture and take in each tiny detail that combines to form a spectacular whole.

We love her use of color in the kitchen,

How cozy and warm it makes the spaces.

But, then again, you know we’ll never turn away a white kitchen! Especially when it has gorgeous brass accents!

 

 

What do you notice first in this room? For us, the chairs jumped out with that fabulous fabric, and we would have sworn they were our favorite element. But then that coffee table is a true work of art… And the pillows… And the details in that lamp… It’s one of those instances we just had to keep looking to take it all in!

So many special elements combine here to create a perfect bathroom that is far from boring and becomes a true experience. Which is your favorite space?

In Good Taste: Hendricks Churchill Architecture & Design

Hendricks Churchill Architecture & Design foyer with canes    

 

We don’t know about you, but we love homes with history, with a sense of time and place and a style all their own.  Maybe that’s what first drew us to Hendricks Churchill House & Interiors. These designers’ eye toward preserving the best of the old while incorporating the new is nothing short of fabulous. Take a look and we think you’ll agree!

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey

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.

4 Favorite: Powder Rooms Big on Style

Powder rooms are sort of like babies: It’s amazing how something so small can have so much personality. Stunning wallpapers, statement lighting, bold colors and even wood paneling set these nooks apart and make them oh-so-chic.

Things We Love: Ansley’s Guesthouse

guest house

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having an amazing week! It has been perfect beach weather here, and we are loving every second!

guest house flowers

 

If you aren’t near the coast, we say it’s the perfect time of year to call up your friends with beach houses and crash for a while!

 

guest house

 

In my latest novel, The Southern Side of Paradise–and in the entire Peachtree Bluff Series–my interior designer protagonist Ansley’s guesthouse gets quite the workout.

 

guest house

 

The series opens with the sisters fighting over who will live in the guesthouse. (And queen bee eldest sister Caroline proclaiming that it is hers!)

 

guest house

 

When this beautiful space caught our eye, we couldn’t help but imagine it to be similar to the gorgeous guesthouse that the Murphy girls all want to lay claim to. 

 

 

Lovely and luxurious, this is just the kind of place where we would love to be guests!

 

 

The space feels homey yet streamlined, which is the best combination we know of.

guest house

 

And well-placed planks on the walls and ceilings add charm in droves.

All in all, this is just the kind of place where we’d love to wear out our welcome and luxuriate all summer long!

Do you want to come to this gorgeous guesthouse too?
