Just Like 1985

January 09, 2011

Not really, but I'm loving all of these vibrant colors. Color plays a big role in my work and my life. It's probably the one thing that people comment on most when referring to my work. Like anyone I have my favorites, purple and turquoise to be specific, but I love the entire spectrum. Color mixing comes naturally for me, but I also don't think there is any wrong color. It's really how you play them off of one another. I recently designed an instant room for an upcoming issue of House Beautiful and used yellow, hot pink, dark blue and shades of purple. Now it seems that everywhere I look I am gravitating to these bold and vibrant colors. I love all things retro and right now these colors are making me love the 80's.

Women at Work: Leigh Magar

December 17, 2010

Leigh has an amazing collection of feathers, these are just a few on our side porch.

My studio above. I'm a sucker for burlap as seen here in my fuchsia drapes.

Leigh's one of kind hats and her prolific collection of vintage hat blocks.
Not only do I get to call beautiful Charleston, SC my home, but I also get to work in one of the coolest neighborhoods in town. I also happen to share studio space with some of the most talented and coolest girls around. Leigh Magar, of the very well known Magar Hatworks, owns the building and has her prodigious studio and work room on the first floor. Stacey Bradley, creator of Perla Anne, and photographer Julia Lynn along with myself reside upstairs. Julia recently photographed our spaces and Courtney Barnes at style court just posted a lovely story on the four of us, Women at Work: Julia, Angie, Stacey and Leigh. I am thrilled to have these girls among my closest friends. Although we sometimes have to stop ourselves from chatting it up so we can get some work done.

Made in the South

Check out the new issue of Garden & Gun and you will see some amazing creations from a slew of talented folks across the south. A couple of my favorites include my friend and office mate Leigh Magar. I get to see these handmade beauties everyday in her studio downstairs and of course I have one of my own. And I can't wait to get my hands on a bottle of organic Roobie Red Tea from my hometown of Louisville, KY. I was also psyched to find out that my friend, Sid Evans, editor in chief of Garden & Gun, requested to have his new profile picture taken at Enoteca.
