Vintage Charm

We are LOVING the look of vintage! It adds instant charm and whimsy to any party and enriches the atmosphere. Our friends over at Scout Furniture have an amazing collection available for rentals that we couldn’t bare not to share!


Wedding Dress Sketch

Immortalize your gown as art!

We came across this amazing resource when looking for ways to preserve wedding dresses. My Dream Lines will take an image of your gown and create a couture sketch of the dress for you to display as art. While you will only ever where your gown once (hopefully!) this is a beautiful and creative way to memorialize your stunning gown and much less ridiculous than framing the dress itself (which apparently people do…) Of course we always recommend having your dress cleaned and preserved after the wedding, but most are put away in storage after, to be passed down to your female family members. Having your own couture sketch on display is his is a great way to commemorate and extend the life of your dress.  They also make for really wonderful wedding presents and anniversary presents as well!

Wedding Weekend Wardrobe


Written by Jessica Johnson | Resources, Uncategorized, Weddings

So many of our brides, mother of the bride and family members are busy with final wedding plans the weeks leading up to the big event, that planning what to wear each event surrounding the wedding day is far from anyone’s mind! Luckily, we have a wonderful resource here in Seattle, Sarah Fishman of West End Wardrobe.

Sarah, a fashion guru and personal shopper offers a wide range of services from closet organizing, wardrobe restyling using what you already have in your closet, shopping for key pieces and accessories to update any wardrobe, as well as styling for big events.  She has a special package, “The Stylish Bride”, where she will coordinate outfits for rehearsal dinner, wedding showers, morning after brunch and will even pack for your honeymoon! We would gift her services as an early and truly priceless wedding present to the bride-to-be.

Sarah on site!

The rare sunny day here reminds up that spring is right around the corner, perfect time for a seasonal wardrobe revamp as well!

Color Scheme Tools


Written by Jessica Johnson | Color Scheme, Resources

We have found Design-Seeds color swatch stories online really helpful when putting together a complete color story and inspiration board for upcoming events. Feeling particularly generous today, so enjoy playing around. There is a search function organized by color value, as well as association categories. What a great tool for interior design as well!

A favorite palette as of late.
