DESIGNER JAN WARE




Y'all thanks for all the love on my wedding post!

Caitlin said she would send me all the info on makeup artist....hair stylist and wedding planner for anyone who is planning a wedding!  

I am happy to report they are having a great time on the Honeymoon!

I'm turning the corner on this stinking cold and I hate to complain about it....but damn I am clearly not a happy camper.

Today I am helping my friend with an install....so excited because it's going to be fun!  Stay tuned to instastories for all the details!

Can we talk for a moment about inspiration?  It comes from everywhere right?  I find that most of my clients use Houzz.....but most designers I know use Pinterest....weird huh?

Anyway "the gram" is also a place to find inspiration and see designers work.  "They say" that you really don't even need to be published anymore....just post your work on insta......

Yesterday I was scrolling through Instagram and saw some pretty work featured on Birmingham Home and Garden from a designer I wasn't familiar with and when I went to her website my jaw dropped....


Classic....timeless.

I love her use of reclaimed wood in this kitchen....mixed with gold!


We might be related somewhere along the line as I used that same light fixture just recently.....

When I saw this situation I got excited because I love a chaise......anywhere!!


The prettiest dining room with those pink curtains!




Gorgeous white and wood kitchen and dining area....



These pecky cypress paneled walls....mixed with all white is stunning!


I have used that Circa Lighting pendant before and it is one of my favs......


Can we talk about the stone wall behind the hood....I'm in.






I'm renovating a home and told the contractor to take out this situation in her bath but now I am rethinking because this is so pretty!



Are you with me here?  Do you love her work as much as I do?  In my opinion good design will stand the test of time....

Here is a little update for ya.....my sister's house  [that I did the ORC for in the spring] is getting some updates to the outside!

Like so many of us.....she has been building a business for the last 15 years....a restaurant and some things just got pushed aside like landscaping and such.....


You almost couldn't see her house.  There is a very large Magnolia in front and a few "weed trees".....

We had a some limbs cut and all the brush taken out.  She is also having some rotten wood repairs and it is now painted darker with SW Peppercorn.  I elected to remove the shutters....It's still ongoing as you can see...... the dormers aren't finished being painted yet.  Those almost had to be totally re-done!

It's looking so much better!

And....last thing...

Our neighbors had us over for dinner last night and she served this cabbage salad.....I all but licked the bowl!


She did use a quarter of a white onion sliced real thin instead of onion powder and sprinkled blue cheese crumbles on top......Dayum.....so good!

Alrighty then....off to the install!

Friyay....

THE WEDDING






Well you can just FF through this post because it is mostly about family.....we will return to design on Friday:)

It was "wedding weekend"..... finally......and now it's already over.  

4 events.....4 outfits....all with a cold.  Damn I just could not believe I got sick.  AND.....on top of that I had no help as my husband has a torn meniscus so he is pretty much cripple.  That's a whole other story.....

Doing some flowers for all 4 events just about killed me.  Packing and un-packing the car on the hottest weekend we have had all summer....but....I was happy to help in a small way.

The wedding was at King Plow Arts Center and I have to say they did an amazing job.....I know my niece was thrilled with everything.  

If you don't think social media is important today....she found her photographer, makeup artist and wedding co-ordinator on Instagram.....



I might be bias but isn't she beautiful!




I loved her dress so much....very simple and I compare it to Carolyn Bessette's.





Father of the bride!


The flowers.....



My sister and her daughter.....

My nephew officiated and he did a great job!




Married!



They live in NYC.  She works for Knoll and he is a graphic artist.  He is definitely the creative!


Below is the welcome table that I got there early to do....although I was late because I had to go go by the hotel and get the silver trays that MY SISTER FORGOT!  Yes and..... they were supposed to be at the front desk but they weren't.

So I had to go completely "aunt of the bride" on them....speaking through clenched teeth and all.
  

I was so hurried [we had about 15 minutes].... that I forgot to put on my jewelry.....


My baby sister and me.  I made appointments for us at Nordstroms to have our makeup done!

And even though I hate posting pictures of me here is the dress with the rose gold shoes which were so comfortable! 

Did you know that wedding cakes aren't a thing anymore?  My sister insisted though.....

First dance....

The head table.....


And of course the disco ball.....

Cutting the cake....


The after wedding brunch was at my house....

I loved that she came dressed with a beret on ready for the honeymoon in Nice,  France....



Cami got to come to the party....haha.  Big baby....

Thanks for reading guys....the best thing about having a blog is getting to document all these events in my life....
