Fall Essentials

All images found here

Fall is such a great time of year when you get rest and relax, spend time with your family, and celebrate traditions that feed your soul. My favorite things about fall is the smell of rain of the earth, hunting for the perfect pumpkin at a patch, laying by the fire, and baking. Here are some essentials you will need for the next few months:

Natural Beauty

All images from here

I love event design and for many of my design projects I draw inspiration from the simple natural details rather than past events.  This is one of my inspiration mood boards I will show a bride that wants a really creative and romantic affair. Rooted with natural tones of creme, browns, and deep purple the event would be about texture, natures true beauty and effortless chic details. Vintage flatware, brown paper wrapped favors, and calligraphy on custom italian paper stock are the three details I would focus on.

Carmel-by-the-Sea is probably the quaintest and most romantic town in northern California. Walking the picturesque streets makes you feel as if you have been transported to a small European village. Restaurants and high end boutiques line the walkways down to the famous white sand beach. Here are my favorite spots:

While I may not be strolling through the streets of Paris... I am channeling my inner Parisian girl with this fun daytime look.  Mother Denim is officially my new go to jeans and I live in this cropped skinnies. I paired them with a fun Equipment top and the worlds most comfortable heels by Cole Haan for a day out in town. Plus my gorgeous new suede Prada bag and a fun Lack of Color Australia boater hat.

Great Kitchens

Cooking is one of my favorite pleasures in life. There is nothing more gratifying than trying a new recipe or cooking for friends and family. Part of being able to have adventures in your kitchen is to make sure that your kitchen itself is inspiring to you. These five kitchens are beautifully detailed, cozy, and welcoming.

Distinctive Rustic Elegance

 Photos by Carlie Statsky

My family owns the most beautiful country estate called Devine Ranch and recently we all agreed it would be wonderful to share it with a select number of people each year for weddings and special events. A few of my favorite event industry creatives came together to help us capture the ranch's rustic yet elegant aesthetic and the results were a-ma-zing! With styling by the fabulous Esla Events, rentals from One True Love Vintage, florals by Fionna Floral, beauty by Skyla Arts, jewelry by Haute Bride, and paper goods by Aerialist Press every detail was just perfect. All captured by the uber-talented Carlie Statsky. Find more from the shoot on Style Me Pretty.
