One thing that we believe in fully here at the Emily McCarthy studio is that Chinoiserie is truly a beautiful and elegant thing. Maybe you recall our bridal luncheon where blue and white ginger jars set the tone, or maybe you enjoyed seeing how Paige Minear uses ginger jars to spruce up her bookshelves! One thing is positive, they’re an absolute favorite.

We believe there are two types of pillows in this world. Basic, every day throw pillows that you put on a sofa or a bed and they live up to their name. They are there to be thrown. Then, we believe that there are the second type of pillows. Small yet impactful works of art that take your home from assembly line to full on chorus line.

a0917f3e-7f25-446f-9e50-0229265a2157

The second type of pillows are the ones that you wouldn’t dare want to throw anywhere. In fact, they’re the stars of the show. Maybe you’re looking to play up a sofa that you’re no longer in love with, or you’re looking to display your custom Emily McCarthy monogram in more areas – no matter what the reason, our new line of custom pillows are just divine. They’ll be lighting up your interiors and singing a siren song to all who enter.

Screen Shot 2017-03-09 at 3.32.01 PM

We are proud to announce that these aren’t just a one-trick pony, either. These pillows are available in both indoor and outdoor fabric! You can choose from so many color ways, the customization options will have you re-designing and re-thinking absolutely everything. (And that’s a good thing!) Need help customizing something? Reach out to us via email by clicking here, and we’ll be delighted to assist! Click here to see all of our monogram options. Take a look at some examples we’ve created for you to get your creative juices flowing.

Part of the reason we love what we do here at the Emily McCarthy Shoppe so much is because we get to see others’ signature style come to life utilizing things we’ve developed and created. Gina Julian is a perfect example. All of the swooning will commence as soon as you click on this link to her blog: here.

First of all, can we mention how obsessed we are with the transformation of the office? Both are oozing with signature, clean yet daring, style – and they both show how multifaceted one person can be. The depth of style almost gives us chills, no joke!

As she’ll mention on the blog, she needed an update to her personal office. It received so much natural light, she wanted to brighten it up. The black screams “drama” and definitely made a clear statement.

GinaJulianBlackOffice

When looking for a major transformation, it’s important to have a point of beginning. Gina chose our very own Multi Spot Cheetah wallpaper made exclusively by Cotton and Quill. (Available here) As we contain our squeals to have been utilized as inspiration, we love the direction she took. Her original mock-up had us dying to see more!

GinaJulianInspiration

The pop of color on the ceiling was a brilliant move on her part. It tied the room together without being overpowering. We also love that she chose a simple, clean line light fixture to remain a focal point. Gold just goes with everything, doesn’t it? The final product proves that a picture is worth (easily) 1,000 words.

GinaJulianFinal

From dark, sexy, and dramatic to light, fun, and young. How have you used Emily McCarthy designs to change your space? We’d adore to see it!

A fabulous fete is incomplete without a guest of honor, and a guest of honor was present indeed! Mary McDonald, award winning Los Angeles based interior designer, was in town for a book signing at Georgia Furniture and Interiors and celebrating a fabulous collaboration with Chaddock furniture. Her designs were divine, and it’s impossible not to find at least 5 pieces that you must have in your home. You may recognize Mary from her part in Bravo TV’s “Million Dollar Decorators” or “Property Envy.”

Meeting Mary was such an exciting event, she’s vibrant and energetic – just like her designs. The backdrop of Georgia Furniture and Interiors was buzzing over the new addition of Chaddock Home furniture to their repertoire of high end brands. With the partnership so fresh of Mary McDonald creating exclusive looks for Chaddock Home, a book signing was the cherry on top of the sundae. Mary is such a wealth of talent, it was certainly a treat.

Emily was able to sit down with Mary and have a one-on-one. The two of them found it easy to talk at a peer to peer level sharing personal goals, aspirations, and understanding one another’s passion for branding a home and letting personal style shine in all aspects of life.

We can’t wait until Mary makes a trip back to Savannah, and we’re even more excited to see what she comes up with next. Stay tuned on the blog as we hope to feature her soon on our own Signature Style Series.

Just like prosecco can be jazzed up with a splash of limoncello, classic holiday decor also deserves a delightful twist.  Such was the inspiration behind our latest holiday tablescape idea.

NewClassicHeader

Sarah Buck Photography joined us at Cohen’s Retreat to showcase a truly chic table that mixes patterns to keep you up to date, but rooted in tradition.

You know what we always say at the studio? “Have ingenuity.” This is exactly what you can employ to create your own masterpiece. The spot cheetah napkins are in a first place tie along with the monogrammed china for the most eye-catching pieces on the table. (Both items are available upon further inquiry with with shoppe!) As is in our nature to bring a look completely together, you can continue the theme with the Lisi Lerch Tassel Necklace in Gold (seen on Emily). Naturally, Everbloom made a floral arrangement to be marveled at.

IMG_1223

The dramatic red tablecloth was furnished from Ranco Tent Rentals and Savannah Special Events, while the tartan overlay was a blanket from Home Goods. The stemware was another lucky purchase at Home Goods. The personalized place markers attached to the stems are from Michael’s. Whereas the gold chargers pictured are from Emily’s personal collection, you can find similar here. Your final stop would be to add your own flair like we did by including these fun “Merry Christmas” ornaments from Hobby Lobby at each place setting. We love to add a little dazzle!

This week, we had the joy of getting to know more about Kimberly Whitman for our readers. She’s been a household name around the studio ever since we were able to lend our monograms to her new book, Monograms for the Home. Another name we can call her is “friend”. We’re positive you will be able to tell from this short interview what a truly warm, inviting, and happy presence she has.

EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?

KW: I just choose what I like when I’m faced with a choice! I figure that if it resonates with me, tells a story, or makes me smile, it suits my style!

KSW Dinner Party August 19 2015-181
EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?

KW:When I think of some of my most stylish friends, I must say that they are hard to box in. In other words, they are always evolving and open to new things and new looks. I like that! To have signature style, you have to have curiosity about life and design and be driven to discover what you like.

Screen Shot 2014-06-20 at 9.50.28 AM
EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?

KW: Classic, Joyous, Colorful? I don’t know! That is so tough. What three words would you use for me? I’m so curious, after sharing these photos, etc, what you would say!

EMc: You know, Kimberly, after reveling in all the gorgeous photos you sent to us and reading your answers… we would absolutely use the words vanguard, whimsical, and joyous. 

JR_1101a19-KS-Whitman_11-14
EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? This could be a piece of furniture, jewelry, art, etc.

KW: Oh gosh – that is so hard! I love “stuff” and cherish the memories that come along with so many of my belongings. One of them is certainly my engagement ring. It was my husband’s great grandmothers ring. All of the ladies in his life wore it and that means so much to me. It is a sapphire (colorful and blue!), an heirloom, and a very classic and lady like style. I adore it and I think it completely suits me even though it wasn’t made for me! I also love the bracelet that features the dates my children were born and my monogram by Hannah Fergeson. I wore it in my author photo for my new book, Monograms for the Home. I also cherish my son’s portrait by Stella Ehrich. She is so talented and did such a beautiful job capturing who he is. She spent time with us and got to know him before she started painting him and the final painting is just magical because he really shines through! The best part, besides our new friendship with Stella, is that she even painted his toes that cross over – just like my father’s toes do!

Schlegel Kitchen
EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?

KW: Explore and try new things! Mix and match things that resonate with you. Edit like crazy and you will probably find that the things that stay around you all have a common thread.

Pssst, things are feeling rather celebratory around here! (You know how much we just adore a good party.) The talented Kimberly Whitman has published an ode to the monogram showing their ever present status in the modern home. Monograms are the new language of chic, and they offer countless ways to brand your life. We were thrilled that we got to lend our own style to the pages. 

Celebrating the grand entrance of monograms into today’s requirements for a curated domain, Monograms for the Home dusts off the idea of the family insignia being a relic and shows it shining bright as a reclaimed staple. Purchase a copy for your own monogrammed home by clicking here.
