Feels Like Falling Kristy Woodson Harvey beach read

My next novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING, releases April 28, 2020! I can’t wait to share this tale of Gray and Diana, their unlikely friendship, their summer loves and their chance at happily ever after, the sequel, with all of you. It’s never too early to preorder from your favorite local bookstore or online retailer!

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.

top 10 blog post of 2018


Happy second week of 2019, wonderful, amazing readers! We want to thank you so much for making 2018 our biggest, best year yet. May 3, 2010 Mom and I posted our very first post, on natural fiber rugs, thinking that we would keep this little spot on the internet for a year, tops. (For the record, we love that first bedroom we ever posted, designed by the Suzanne Kasler, just as much now as we did then.) Eight and half years later, we have grown from two followers (Dad and Will) to hundreds of thousands, and we look forward to being here with you every single day! We are always thinking about what you are loving, what you aren’t, what’s new, what’s next, and what makes our hearts beat a little bit faster. We are thrilled to share our most popular posts of 2018 with you. Thank you for another amazing 365 days in the books. And here’s to the next eight and a half!

Thanks so much, as always, for stopping by Design Chic today!



There might not be anyone in the world who loves her hometown quite as much as I do. All the amazing people of Salisbury, NC were so supportive and encouraging when I was growing up and continue to be so now. I am so proud and honored that my books, THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM and SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE, were #1 and #3 on Rowan County’s 2018 BESTSELLER LIST. Thank you, thank you to Wendy Persse and everyone at South Main Book Company for handselling my stories all year long—and to all the readers everywhere who allow me to keep doing what I love year after year. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Salisbury and Rowan County! There really is no place like home!



Are you resolving to read more in 2019? Pick up your copy of Slightly South of Simple, the first novel in my Peachtree Bluff series, Book 2,  The Secret to Southern Charm, and Book 3, The Southern Side of Paradise releasing, May 7!  I’m so grateful for the support of my readers!

Happy 2017, wonderful readers! We hope you had a terrific holiday season and are feeling refreshed, rested and ready to tackle a brand new year. We spent most of the day yesterday doing our favorite New Year’s Day activity: organizing!

2016 Kitchen of the Year

Okay. So maybe not our favorite. Maybe our favorite when it’s over and everything looks pretty?


Lies and Other Acts of Love

Speaking of favorites, let’s talk about your favorites. Your favorite Design Chic posts of 2016, that is. These were our most-viewed, most-popular posts of the year.

Looking for more 2017 inspiration? I’m chatting with my friends at Your Carolina about how to create a “Life by Design” this year!
