Styled Editorial | California Coast Inspiration

Anyone that knows me knows how much I am in love with California. The variances in landscape and terrain is remarkable. I like to plan a few trips there each year just to get inspired, make new vendor relationships and create fresh content. This trip was all of this and so much more. We were able to connect as a team and create something truly beautiful. Our design was influenced from the beautiful, historic mission of San Juan Capristrano with it’s terracotta walkways, over-sized cacti, and gorgeous arched walkways. All of my favorite things at once!! Our palette complemented it’s environment with rusty shades of gold, creams and brown/reds with a blue tone in the fabric for an unexpected pop. Our table setting was constructed from a primitive wood table and bentwood chair pairing. Floral vessels were a trio of vintage terracotta pots that gave a design lending of being unearthed. They referenced beautifully back to the influence of the mission. With a soft, organic blue fabric that pooled to the sides of the table and dramatically dripping taper candles, who would NOT want to dine at this dreamy scape?! We used hand turned ceramic dinnerware and a knotted simple linen napkin to keep our table relate-able. The purpose was the fit the design within the environment, not to compete. Loving details can be found throughout, from hand drawn illustration of the mission to beautiful jewelry, and one very stunning bride.

A Styled Project with Haystack Film

Several months ago we were asked to join The Haystack Film Community, a group of fine art film photographers, as their project stylist. We are finally sharing one set of images from the many talented photographers that were on site. We were honored to be included, to style for such incredibly talented photographers, and to see a community built on support and encouragement. And there is even a rare sighting of Lottie behind the scenes. Images by Charla Storey.

Romantic Elopement in Tehuacana Texas

Our design lends towards a dramatic and romantic elopement somewhere in Texas. The backdrop, an old school built in late 1800’s which now brings many artists who admire capturing it’s beautiful ornate architecture and patina’d walls. Our bride’s boudoir look was a simple lace silk slip and layered tulle skirt, changing later for a Rachel Zoe lace dress in black. Simple details like trellising greenery and heavy candle light give the sense of romance.
