Silver bells…

…..silver wreaths, mercury glass and bright twinkly lights!  It’s a glamor girls’ Christmas dream in Seagrove Beach, FL this year.  Paige, Kristina & me {hi-it’s Bess!} had a great time playing Santa’s helpers last week.  We cranked up my favorite Pandora Christmas station, Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas is You,’ and worked a little holiday magic.

The wreaths are made of live magnolia leaves that were painted silver, just like the red wreath on the front of our Rosemary Beach shop.  No craft time here-we ordered the wreaths as is.  I’m sure I would have a new pair of ‘silver’ flats if we had opted to paint them ourselves 🙂

The tree contains a mixture of ornaments from Tracery and a few of our other favorite retailers {Anthropologie & Restoration Hardware to name a few}.  At night the white twinkly lights hit everything just right and man does this tree SPARKLE!

Hope everyone is having  a great week &  Happy Holidays, 
Bess

Photo shoot

Hi! Happy Monday after Thanksgiving! Last week before the turkey we had a photo shoot with Better Homes and Gardens. They came to Rosemary Beach to shoot a home AK and I designed for a great family from Atlanta. It is always fun to be a part of a photo shoot. This one was no exception. Paige is from the magazine and is an all around a wonderful person……Not confusing at all having 2 Paige’s together in one room! Michael the stylist was great…. We really enjoyed getting to know him. Edmund the photographer was capturing the house perfectly. Then last but not least Derek and Staci were so sweet to come down with their family and open their home to all of us. It takes a team to pull it all together! I can’t wait to see it in print! Here are a few pics from the shoot. Of course you will have to wait on the magazine to see the finished product.
