One of our favorite things to do is admire fabulous signature style, as you know. This is why we are so thrilled to announce the return of our Signature Style Series! To kick off the return of this fabulous foray into the most fashionable friends we have, we want to introduce you to Sarah Tucker. She is pure light and brightness from the moment you click onto her blog. We can’t wait for you to learn who she is, and get excited to continue to follow along with her life.

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

Sarah Tucker: I love all things tassels, mixed metals, fun patterns … but I’m very classic too.  I’m that way with my choices in the home, what I wear, and how I entertain.  It’s nice to have some fun and surprising element, always!

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?

ST: Whatever you are naturally drawn toward – that’s your signature style.  I rarely care if something looks ridiculous to someone, to me it works!  

2A6A6407-900x600-1 2A6A6423-900x1323

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?

ST:

laid back – I don’t always feel this way but it’s what most of my friends keep telling me I am.  I also think this carries from my attitude to my style. I don’t like anything being too fussy.  But maybe that is because I have two boys (:  

empathetic – I am extremely empathetic.  I feel things very deeply, and I tend to have a ton of compassion for people and their situations.

silly – my best self is a bit silly – with my family, my children, and my friends.  Life should be fun.  

2A6A6446-900x1293 2A6A6460-900x1350

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.

ST:

chinoiserie – I have so many ginger jars and blue and white chinoiserie vases.  My mother always collected them and that obsession has carried over to me.  Never too many!

my parents vows  – I have the original typed up piece of paper of their vows framed.  

photos – from our wedding photos to us becoming a family of three and now four.  Our photos all over our walls remind me of my priorities always.  

IMG_9957-900x1350

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

ST: I don’t know why I like what I like, but I don’t fight it!  I don’t try to talk myself out of it just because it’s not trendy or may be odd to someone else.  And you shouldn’t either. 

We are all so different and unique, and I love seeing that celebrated by everyone’s choices in their homes, through entertaining, and fashion choices.

Part of being a lifestyle brand is engaging with other beautiful brands that walk hand in hand with our elegant, coastal style. We know that a home is comprised of pieces from many different places, and its important to us that our product will not just stand out from the rest – but we want to make sure our pieces compliment the rest as well. We have found that the coastal inspirations and whimsy of Spartina 449 are truly complimentary to the Emily McCarthy style.

Do you love Emily’s scarf in the very first photo? It’s darling and it’s even more precious because it’s a scarf with the map of Savannah on it. Click either of the images above to make sure it’s in your wardrobe!

We hosted a sip and shop event at Spartina 449’s downtown Savannah location at the end of October and had such a fun experience. The baubles, the totes, the devotion to seaside life – it truly aligns itself with all of our favorite things! How gorgeous is this store?

Emily McCarthy + Spartina 449

We see the girl with signature style who can’t get enough of a great classic, brown cross body bag. Inside it she has a journal to keep all of her fresh and exciting ideas about her passion. The Spartina 449 Savannah map journal tugs at our heart strings, because it’s so important to keep home close to you no matter where you are. She never leaves the home without a bit of sparkle and a bit of sass. Spot cheetah around her neck is a must!

She’s also the kind to have her folded notes closeby so that no matter what adventure she’s on, she’s sending love to those who fill her heart the most.

Our mission in your life is quite simple – we create new styles that meet a classic concept. Having something for everyone’s signature style is our true intention with the design we create. That’s why we are introducing “Woven”, the newest font to the exclusive line-up, available in shoppe and online. Woven has quickly become one of our favorites, and we hope you will love it just as much! Order all your favorites with this new style and you’re sure to fall in love all over again.

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!

Emily McCarthy has a very clear path to her heart. It involves prosecco, great friends, and elegant dinner parties. (No doubt, you share the same tastes.) Allow us to set the scene for you: the stars of the show were Lance Jackson and David Ecton, the venue was a prime location in downtown Atlanta – The Capital City Club. The cast? Designers and partners who work closely with Parker Kennedy Living, the brain child of Lance and David. (Surely you’ve already read all about them during our Signature Style Series!)

Parker Kennedy is notorious for mixing vintage and modern adding notes of Chinoiserie. This table was so true to their signature style, and curated down to the finest detail.

The smell that wafted through the room was none other than our own prosecco candle. Can you imagine a better sensory experience? @shopinstantgratification created custom napkin rings with the one and only PKL pagoda, @changnatalie also showed off the pagoda on custom place cards. @paigeminear added the cherry to the sundae by making the red monogram atop the napkin rings.

A creation this epic could only have come from such a strong meeting of the minds, Emily was beyond thrilled to be included in this upper echelon of style.

What’s more exciting, and worth the celebration, is that Parker Kennedy is nominated as part of a talent hunt for Traditional Home! We know who has our vote, and they can have yours, too. Click the photo or click here to go directly to the page and spread the love to Parker Kennedy!

We’re already saving dates in our calendar for the next dinner party.

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.

Prepare to swoon in all the best ways as you meet Alex, aka Teggy French. She channels retro glamour on a level that is almost impossible to achieve. To look at her pictures transports you to a world where style is vibrant and vivacious.

IMG_7332

EMc: Why do these photos show your signature style?
TF: These photos show my signature style because they are preppy meets 1960s Palm Beach.  I am all for a classic look, but I try to always incorporate something fun to give the outfit an added twist.

EMc: What aspects really tell us who you are?  
TF: I would say that these photos show my love of fashion, both current and past, and represent that I march to my own drum.  I love to have fun, I’m a little quirky, but I take fashion VERY seriously 🙂

IMG_5815

IMG_5778

EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?  
TF: I try to have fun in all aspects of my life. I live in an old farmhouse that was renovated in 2003 so it would be very easy to conform to the style of the home, but that just wouldn’t be me.  We moved in two years ago, and slowly but surely I am adding touches of my love of Southern style while still staying true to the original charm of the home.  My office is totally inspired by Palm Beach, and of course that’s my favorite room to spend time in!  When I entertain it is very similar to my fashion sense–I go all out while still maintaining comfort.  If you’re inviting people into your home I believe in making everything perfect, but not to the point where you drive yourself crazy or make people feel they have have walked into stuffy Buffy’s house. In order to achieve this I will throw a dinner party with a theme such as 1960s Palm Beach (surprise, right?!).  It gives people a chance to dress up, and you’re laughing from the moment you walk in the door.  I also think a dinner game with a prize makes for lots of laughs.  For my husband’s birthday we made a quiz based on “The Preppy Handbook” to determine who was the preppiest guest.  It’s all about the twist!

IMG_6125

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?  
TF: Preppy with a Twist…shaken, not stirred

IMG_7256

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words? 
TF: Life is about evolving, but the words I would choose at this moment in my life would be fun, loyal, and dedicated.  I choose these words because I have a strong belief that life is too short to not have a good time. If you are in my life I will always do my best to give you my all and I am dedicated to whatever I set my mind to…oh, and I try to be fabulous while living out those qualities!

IMG_8433

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. 
TF: The pieces that represent my signature style are my turbans, oversized sunglasses (Teggy French x Victory Optical will be coming out soon!) and the Slim Aarons photograph I have hanging in my office.

EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style? 
TF: What I have found is that you have trust your own instincts and not care about what others think.  If you feel good then that confidence will shine through.  Do I look a little “different” wearing a turban around New Jersey?  I probably do to a lot of people, but I don’t mind because I am who I am…and that’s the best style you can have!

 

IMG_5573

Now that you’re sufficiently immersed in a major style crush, we invite you to follow along with Alex as she channels her unique style everywhere she goes.

Stay stylish,
