Thrilled for the Christmas in Peachtree BluffTrailer

 

The fourth book in my bestselling Peachtree Bluff Series is releasing October 26 but is available NOW for preorder from your bookseller of choice! 

In the newest installment of New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey’s Peachtree Bluff series, three generations of the Murphy women must come together when a hurricane threatens to destroy their hometown—and the holiday season in the process.

When the Murphy women are in trouble, they always know they can turn to their mother Ansley. So when eldest daughter Caroline and her husband James announce they are divorcing—and fifteen-year-old daughter Vivi acts out in response—Caroline, at her wits end, can’t think of anything to do besides leave her with Ansley in Peachtree Bluff for the holidays. After all, how much trouble can one teenager get into on a tiny island?

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

As the “storm of the century” heads toward Peachtree Bluff, Ansley and her husband Jack, with Vivi in tow, are grateful they’re planning to leave for the trip of a lifetime. But Vivi’s recklessness forces the trio to shelter in place during the worst hurricane Peachtree has ever seen. With no power, no provisions, and the water rising, the circumstances become dire very quickly…and the Murphy sisters, who evacuated to New York, soon realize it’s up to them to conduct a rescue mission. With the bridges closed and no way to access Peachtree Bluff by land or air, they set sail on Caroline’s boat, The Starlite Sisters, determined to rebuild their beloved town—as well as their family.

In “pitch perfect tones” (Publishers Weekly) and written with her signature Southern charm, New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey explores the magic of Christmas, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of family in a tale that reminds us that, no matter the circumstances, home is always where we belong—especially during the holidays.

House Tour: Fishing Bay by Janie Molster

Janie Molster Fishing bay curb appeal  

 

There’s a whole lot of fishing going on in the Harvey household right now. Morning, noon and night, after school, all weekend… So this stunning Fishing Bay house designed by Janie Molster (and Gordon Gregory Photography) seemed like a pretty fitting house to tour today. It’s the perfect place to spend weekends for fishing right outside the door–and an equally fabulous place to curl up with a good book or get a little work done if you suddenly find yourself home alone during a grand fishing expedition. Whether or not you’re a fishing fan, we’re pretty sure you’re going to love this beautiful home with wonderful views to boot. Happy touring!

MORE ABOUT FEELS LIKE FALLING:
 
It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her extremist husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger, Diana Harrington, fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a worn-out Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn. But when her first love returns, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, 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.

House Tour: The Enchanted (Second) Home

Good morning, chic readers! We love her and we’re sure you do too… Tina of the breathtaking blog, The Enchanted Home, is known for her great taste, her penchant for blue and white and her superb hostessing skills. (If you don’t follow her, don’t wait another minute!)

 

Palmetto Bluff living room from Tina of The Enchanted Home

 

Today, we are so thrilled to be teaming up with Southern Home Magazine to share Tina’s (enchanted!) South Carolina home with all of you!    

 

Palmetto Bluff dining room from Tina of The Enchanted Home

 

In 2017, when Slightly South of Simple, the first book in my Peachtree Bluff Series, released, Tina hosted a party at her beyond fabulous Long Island home with dear, darling mutual blog friends. We all started our blogs at the same time, about a decade ago, and to finally be in the same place at the same time was a dream!

 

Palmetto Bluff kitchen of Tina of The Enchanted Home

 

It was almost as dreamy as the party that Tina threw for all of us, in fact… Let’s just say that the only thing that could possibly wow as much as Tina’s homes are her hostessing skills. 

 

Palmetto Bluff bedroom of Tina of The Enchanted Home

 

While the overall feels of the homes in South Carolina and New York are a little different, they both have that signature Tina touch that makes them stunning, special and warm all at once–just like the woman who designed their every detail!

 

Palmetto Bluff bathroom of Tina of The Enchanted Home

 

And they both contain plenty of the blue and white that she has become known for and that her store practically can’t keep in stock!

 

Palmetto Bluff porch of Tina of The Enchanted Home

 

We have had the pleasure of sitting around Tina’s glamorous dining room table. And now we’d like nothing more than to sip champagne on her laid-back porch. What is your favorite space in this perfect Southern home?

 

Thank you to Southern Home for allowing us to feature! And kudos to John O’Hagan Photography for displaying this stunning home in style!

White House, Big Charm

Tim Barber, Ltd

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a wonderful day and that, if you are in the path of Irma, you are staying safe. And friends affected by Hurricane Harvey, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you rebuild.  All of this crazy weather really has us thinking lately about how important our homes are to us. These stunning white houses are full of charm and character. They are welcoming spaces that we are certain beckon their owners home each night. While we focus a lot on interiors, on how our favorite cozy chair and that painting we couldn’t take our eyes off of make us feel a certain way, the exteriors of our house can–and should–do that exact same thing. 

Paul Bates Architects

 

If a home should be anything at all, we think it should be welcoming. Window boxes and a trellis covered in vines are two of the best ways we can think of to take a home’s exterior from plain to positively darling. It’s simple touches like this that make a home feel loved and lived in. And don’t our special spaces deserve to be cared for? 

Shelley Johnstone white brick house

Landscaping is obviously one of the most important ways to make your home feel unique. While we love flowers and big blooms, there’s something stately about a classic cluster of Boxwoods flanking the front door. Well-maintained foliage always contributes something special to a home’s exterior and gives the sense that there is a staid, lovely interior beyond the front door.

studio McGee white brick house

We are suckers for black and white, but a splash of color is always welcome. A bluefront doors adds an undeniably charming feel to this impeccably manicured lot.

 

There’s no doubt about it: Adding exterior color increases curb appeal. Plus, it’s easy to tell visitors that yours is the house with the blue door! Porches add character in droves and make for great porch sitting, especially during the cool fall months. 

 

What are your favorite ways to add character to a home’s exterior? Do you have any home improvement projects on your wish list?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. We always love seeing you!
