We are on our way back from 5 days in Atlanta. While not totally springtime there it was a welcomed relief from the Arctic winter we have been experiencing in New England this year. If you have been following me on Instagram you will have seen our trip began with the gorgeous, big, family wedding of my darling cousin. Her gown and bridal look rivaled Kate Middleton and for the reception…lets just say, chandeliers capped with giant Spanish moss domes and 80′s cover band! I must have danced until almost midnight, heels, 6 1/2 months pregnant and all. It was a blast. Plus my date was crazy handsome and an amazing dancer. Makes me realize we need to go to more black-tie events, he looked so good.

Atlanta is also home store mecca with a plethora of amazing home goods and decor shops. While I didn’t get to go into all of the ones I love, I did pop into two of my favorites. The first being the chain World Market. For some reason, World Market has not made its way up to Boston, but you can order online, so I popped into test drive some patio furniture I have been eying online. I love this store! Their price point is a little like Ikea and Target, but as the name suggest they designs pull more from around the world. India, Africa, Asia, with the staples here and there.
It is an amazing go to for cheep summer jewelry and scarves. Love love love it.
And they have the best food and wine section. I love these mini champagne bottles. Makes me want to drink one with a straw like a model backstage at a Parisian fashion show.
Oh and can’t forget the selection of gummies.
Probably my most favorite home store in Atlanta is BD Jeffries. They carry some of the most luxe gifts, decor and furniture perfectly displayed and curated. The store is practically a 3D version of a magazine editorial and always offers amazing inspiration. Rich and layered, the iPhone photos do not do it justice. One walk through there and I am psyched to move onto the fun decorating part of my home renovation. I want EVERYTHING…although I only got some stationary and two throw pillows.
Coffee table and book (hi my hand)
Fabulous throw pillows.
I LOVE the feet on this little stool.

Yesterday, in the studio we shot a fabulous photo shoot for Jill Rosenwald’s spring line. The shoot was styled by the chic and talented Erin Gates Design of Elements of Style and her rock star assistant, Lindsay. I also had the aid of an awesome assistant, Maggie Emerson. Villanova University, where I spent my undergraduate years, held a take a student to work day, and I was paired with Maggie. Maggie will be graduating in May and entering the big bad world, but it is not all bad. Some days you get to create fabulously, fun photo shoots. So, guest blogging here today we have Maggie, talking about her day in the studio with me.
“As a Villanova University senior with 5 months until the dreaded graduation, I jump at any opportunity to venture into the professional world. I am lucky enough to share my Alma Mater with Sarah Winchester, with whom I was matched up for ‘Nova’s “Take a [wild]’Cat to Work Day,” and so yesterday I came into Boston to help out at the studio, where we did a shoot for Jill Rosenwald styled by Erin Gates. I had an amazing time watching everything get put together, styled, put back together, changed some more and then shot. It was a totally valuable experience which made me actually excited about my future (as a college senior, this is near impossible) and reaffirmed my beliefs that I am on the right path for myself. Of course I Instragramed my way through the whole thing, and here are some scenes from the set.”

I am beyond flattered to have my home and photographs featured in Stuff Magazine and Elements of Style, both penned by Erin T. Gates. Erin is an extremely talented interior designer and writer and the fact that her blog often served as inspiration while I was decorating my new home in Boston, makes her feature all the more flattering. Plus, I got to shoot all the photographs for the pieces.
I am of course psyched the cover of the issue is super cool. I just love the lime green and brown colors.
Click through for all the photographs in the article and blog post, and a big welcome to new readers who found me though Elements of Style.
