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.

Jewelry designers Emily Reece & Kate Blaire are stylish, chic, and modern. They’ve managed to turn friendship into inspiration, vision, and, from there, a full time business. Their Southern roots shine through every piece of well crafted, unique jewelry that they create. Emily and Kate were another team that we got to work with to create a timeless branding image. It’s a pleasure to be able to share the secrets behind their signature style!

IMG_3829

EMc: Why do these photos show your signature style? What aspects really tell us who you are?
RB: Reece Blaire has always tried to embody three qualities: Sass, wit, & sophistication. In both our personal lives and through our jewelry line, we feel that these three qualities best capture what Reece Blaire is all about. Reece Blaire initially started as a lifestyle blog. From the beginning, we felt that it was very important to be real women, so that our viewers and followers could easily relate to us. While we certainly treat ourselves the finer things in life occasionally, we wanted to create a look that was both sophisticated and modern, but also attainable. The key to our brand image is in the styling of our wardrobes and products. In our pictures, we will often aim for an understated outfit, so our jewelry can speak the loudest. There is a certain sophistication to simplicity that we try to achieve with our jewelry designs and our personal wardrobes.

Reece Blaire 12
EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?

RB: Our style is deeply rooted in our Southern culture. From our etiquette books and monogrammed hand towels to our soft costal hues in our jewelry, there will always be a dab of the South in all aspects of our lives. Growing up in the South has greatly impacted both of our personal tastes. In our home décor, entertaining, and fashion, our ultimate goal is to achieve a perfect mix between a timeless style with a modern edge. To achieve this modern timelessness, we like to mix the old and the new. For example, in home décor, we will upholster a vintage armchair in a modern fabric or use our grandmother’s china with a stylish table setting. Entertaining is one of our favorite places to mix the old with the new, after all, there is nothing like Southern hospitality. We always make sure to pay great detail to our invitations. An invitation is the first impression of an event, so this is the best place to set the tone.
Our jewelry line goes hand in hand with our signature fashion. We often get our inspiration from classic jewelry. Every Southern lady has a pair of pearls. Reece Blaire puts a modern twist on the traditional freshwater pearl earring by creating an freeform shape in a bezel setting. We’ve also drawn inspiration from pieces like a vintage Chanel brooch, and adapted some gorgeous statement earrings from a classic design.

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?
RB: Signature style is expressing who you are without having to speak, be it through your wardrobe, your etiquette, or your personality.

Reece Blaire 2

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?
RB: This question is so fitting, as we have used a little tag line since the start of our business. The three words that best describe us are, sass, wit, and sophistication. We feel that every woman should have a balance of these three qualities.

Sass is crucial for every woman to have. We’ve learned through experience that it is important to not be a pushover, to also maintain poise while standing your ground. A little tamed sass is always good for your aresenal.

Wit explains itself. One of our most favorite quotes to date is, “Every time you are able to find humor in a difficult situation, you win.” Being able to laugh through a hard time is the key to keeping your sanity. We believe that wittiness is one of the most beautiful things a woman can wear.

Sophistication. Above all else, we strive to be sophisticated women. Undoubtedly, we both have our moments where our inner demons make a guest appearance, but you will never regret to maintain class and poise in a difficult situation.

BrandingPhotoShoot-54

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.

RB:

1. One of our most prized pieces is our Tinsley earring. The Tinsley earring was one of our first creations for our Reece Blaire Collection. We made it specifically for a dear friend’s bridal party, and it has ended up being a favorite piece, season after season. Having a meaningful piece be such a large part of our jewelry repertoire makes it a continued prized piece.

2. The Birkin bangle is another. It is simply stated but can be worn with one of our bolder pieces, and a true every day bangle.

3. Last, the Penelope. Every Southern girl loves a pearl. This is our take on a modern pearl. It’s a statement ring in a bezel setting that can be worn throughout every season – with your LBD to a summer wedding, or with a cozy sweater in the fall. This ring definitely stands out!


EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
RB: We have two tips for helping others find their own style. 1) Keep it simple, but significant. Your style is about letting things other than your voice to speak for you. When it comes to entertaining, let your manners and etiquette define your style. With clothing, don’t over do it. If you are going to have a bold dress or a bold piece of clothing, keep your accessories to a minimum. In contrast, if you have a simple outfit, let your accessories do the talking for your head to toe look. 2) Carry your style with confidence. No matter what fashion choice you make or what fabrics adorn your home, be confident in your delivery. Once you find this confidence, your style will become consistent throughout all aspects of your life.

This signature style post is close to home, because here at the shoppe we were lucky enough to help Beth and Danielle display their signature style through their branding. Beth and Danielle are the two creative powerhouses behind Palm Beach Lately, a lifestyle brand and blog based out of – you guessed it – Florida. We hope you enjoy learning about these two beauties as much as we did!

bethanddanielle

EMc: Why do these photos show your signature style? What aspects really tell us who you are?
PBL: Our products are a great representation of how we like to entertain. We often host and use the products we created and sell in our online shop from our pillows to cutting boards, cups and napkins. Danielle and I love working which each other and I think it shows in our photoshoots. It’s not just a job to us, we really enjoy what we do and the time we get to spend together.

EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?
PBL: Our new branding that Emily created is the best representation of not only our company, but also us. We love pink, mint, black and gold and you can see those colors weaved through both of our homes. We are Florida girls and love Palm Beach, pineapples and flamingos.

DSC_0003

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?
PBL: Signature style is something that is the best representation of yourself. 

Palm-Beach-West-Elm-8

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

PBL:
Beth: 1) Determined. When I have a goal, I don’t stop until I get there. 2)Outgoing. I love people and have since I was little. I love getting to know people and their stories. I also enjoy mentoring younger girls with business and life advice. 3) Optimistic. In life and business I am thankful to see the bright side.

Danielle: 1) Artistic. I am artistic at heart and thrive on creatively expressing myself through fashion, home and hobbies. This gene runs in our family and I love passing down what I have learned from my Grandma and Mom to my own daughters. 2) Organized. I adore practical spaces, systems, calendars and anything else that simplifies, makes life easier and creates a calm, peaceful space. I can often be found organizing areas of our home to better fit our needs and donating old items to charity. 3) Authentic. I really believe in being true to myself and creating a life that is unique to my skills, traits and experiences. In today’s world it’s easier than ever to copy others, so it’s very important to put your own spin and style on all of the inspiration that is available out there.

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.
Beth: 1) Engagement ring – It’s a representation of our love and loyalty. 2) Louboutins – They were a 30th birthday gift from my husband and are sophisticated yet sexy. 3) Dining Room table – It was one of our first purchases for our new house and reflects my love for combining natural elements with modern style.

Danielle: 1) Pictures/Gallery wall – Over the past several years, we have captured life’s really special moments in beautiful photos. The pictures from our wedding and of our growing family are priceless to us, and I love the way we created a gallery wall in our living room around the tv. It was a risky project, but my husband did a wonderful job getting it just right!   2) Wedding dress – There is something so magical about a wedding dress to me. It tells a whole love story and is one of the most defining style pieces a woman will wear. I love holding on to my dress and dreaming about showing it to our girls one day! 3) Map necklace – I love, love, love Three Jane and her amazing Map Necklaces now sold at A.Joffe. I chose the map/address of our first Palm Beach Lately office to always remember where and how it all began.

Palm-Beach-West-Elm-7

EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
PBL: I think Pinterest is a great way to find your style. When I was decorating our home and would go back to look at what I pinned, I started to see consistency in what I loved – monochromatic with pops of color.

DSC_9882

Pops of color, attention to detail, and coastal living. We couldn’t love this duo more! Thank you so much, Beth and Danielle, for allowing us to feature you on our Signature Style series.

Sometimes, you get to work with one of your idols. This was the case when it came to the fabulous Katie Kime. It felt like happy hour the second she agreed to be a part of our signature style series. Grab a cocktail and get excited, we present a true style crush – Katie Kime!

Katie1

IMG_2523.1

EMc: Why do these photos show your signature style? What aspects really tell us who you are? 
KK: Prints and Color. That’s kind of what we’re known for, obsessed with and driven by. I love to pair unexpected prints together as well as bold, unexpected colors together.

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?
KK: I think signature style is something you’ve really come up with on your own and consistently carry throughout your wardrobe, house or other designs. I once dated a guy who said “every time I see you have a piece of neon on”… I had never noticed it but sure enough that was part of my signature and has continued to be. A bright pop of color always seems to find it’s place into our store, my home and wardrobe. But others may do the same thing with white tees or a neutral palette…

IMG_8371.1

IMG_6812.1

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?
KK: Bright. Bold. Feminine. I really feel that those describe me personally and professionally as well as theme I generally design by. Take for instance our maxi skirt. I custom design the bright fabrics we use to make them and they’re often more modern prints. But I love adding a high cinched waist to their design that’s also feminine and reminiscent of women not just today but through the ages.

EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? 
KK: Tassel earrings, our brass and lucite bar cart (handmade here in Austin, TX), and our color block gracie cape.

IMG_8507.1

EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
KK: I think it would be trust your gut. I think a lot of people, especially those maybe not particularly inclined to trust themselves from a design sense, don’t realize they probably already know what their signature style is. If you’re always drawn to animal print, find a way to make that a part of your signature. If black and white just totally do it for you, trust it and go with it. I think often people really know intuitively what their style is but trusting themselves to go with it and put it out there is the bigger battle.
