This boho wedding combined SO many of our favorite things! We always love working at Mt. Washington Mill Dye House (I mean, we’re basically there on a weekly basis at this point), plus we got to work with one of our fave planners! Lisa with Eight Seven Events always has such a fun vision (be sure to check out the website she just launched for her new event design + planning company!), and Amanda + Jake’s wedding was no exception. To make things even more special, the bride was Lisa’s cousin!
For Amanda + Jake’s big day, the industrial vibe of the venue was balanced with rich leather fabrics, luxurious linens, and a fun lounge to warm up the space. The result was super inviting with just a touch of edge! Pieces like our Hatfield Peacock Green Sofa, Jagger Black Rattan Chairs, and Marrakesh Poufs helped bring this vision to life. A cool metal arbor and our Aslan Turkish Kilim Rug combined to create a super hip ceremony set-up! All in all, it was such a special day, and we were so happy to help bring this couple’s vision for their big day to life. We hope you enjoy the pics!! 😘
From the get-go, this couple knew they wanted to bring the Italian Coast to Maryland for their June wedding in Annapolis! Hanna + Jamie wanted an al fresco vibe that felt simultaneously elegant and organic. To bring their vision to life, they enlisted the help of Simply Chic Events. Samantha and her team knocked this one out of the park, creating an effortlessly stylish reception at the family’s home overlooking the water! Incorporating natural elements like our whitewashed farm tables and crossback chairs gave the space a warm, laid-back vibe that still felt elegant! Simple greenery and florals in a neutral color palette were accented with loose lemons and pots of rosemary, and our Allegra Seagrass Chargers brought in nice texture that perfectly complemented the hand-painted china.
We had the opportunity to collaborate with some of our all-time favorite vendors for a stylish editorial for Modern Luxury Magazine! Designed to promote the new event space at the National Portrait Gallery, this amazing table set-up dreamed up by the crazy talented gals at Grit & Grace was allll about Frida Kahlo. Think midcentury modern meets desert vibes meets vivid colors! These our some of our absolute favorite design elements, and we were super psyched to break out some of our brand new pieces and debut them in this amazing editorial!
The focal point of the set-up was one of our Kalorama Black Tables topped off with our Union Metal Truss. We adorned the truss with an assortment of vintage amber lights and rattan lanterns, plus lush florals by Sweet Root Village! As soon as Grit & Grace explained their inspo to us, we knew we had to incorporate our new Wye Wishbone Chairs. Their honey-colored finish perfectly contrasted the black farm table, plus they incorporated the midcentury vibe we were all going for! Details like our bright kilim rugs, jute chargers and colorful mixed vintage goblets were the perfect finishing touches. All in all, we couldn’t be more excited with how this editorial turned out, and we can’t wait to get into the National Portrait Gallery for some real events in the very near future. We hope you love these pics as much as we do!! ✌🏻
We’ve been adding so many fun pieces to our collection lately, and we’re beyond excited to share some pics of our newest inventory with you! From lounge groupings to textiles to tables, there’s something for everyone. All summer long, we’ve been hard at work reupholstering and refinishing some beautiful vintage sofas and chairs. Our warehouse might feel like a sweltering sauna most days, but our incredible team powered through and we could not be more stoked with the results! In addition to upholstered furniture, we’ve added a whopping three new chair styles to our inventory! Louis French-style chairs like our Roux are classic and elegant, while options like our Wye have a more mid century vibe. We even added a super cool black dining chair option perfect for a stylish wedding ceremony or reception! Whether you’re looking to feature a fun seating area at your next event, or are in need of a chic reception set up, our new pieces our sure to wow your guests.
Earlier this summer, we had the pleasure of being a part of The American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour! The perfect setting to debut our brand new Wye Wishbone Chairs. The intimate dinner series took place at Bloomia in King George, VA. Sustainable flowers were the centerpiece of the event designed by Jeannette Tavares of EVOKE Design & Creative! Complete with most amazing tulip chandeliers and fresh floral centerpieces, the artisan-style dinner was an experience designed to educate guests about the farming process and to create a connection between them and the flowers. Following a tour of the farm and a brief course in floral design, guests were treated to a locally-sourced meal by Occasions Caterers, plus craft beer and wine. Talk about the perfect evening!
A few months ago, we were offered the amazing opportunity to partner with Wedding Wire and Pantone. Um hello, dream come true! The creative team at Wedding Wire is always SO fun to work with, and we were beyond excited to get this opportunity to work with them again. The goal was simple: create four wedding color palettes for 2019!
Throughout the next couple of weeks, we’ll share all four of these different palettes with you. First up: Love in Bloom! Inspired by romantic berry hues, pops of coral (it is the color of the year after all!), and lots of lush, overflowing flowers, this palette is sooo dreamy. We knew we wanted to keep things light and airy, so we opted to include our brand new Robin Chairs! We also incorporated another new piece, our Coraline Merlot Settee, to bring in that gorgeous pop of berry.
These new pieces were so perfect for the vibe of the shoot, plus they complemented the over-the-top stunning florals by Rosy Posy! All in all, we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. We were so inspired by the team of talented vendors we got to work with, and we hope that translates to the photos pictured below! In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned for for more peaks into this gorgeous collaboration!
This midcentury beauty is an instant fave! Set up here alongside one of our Bradley Pillars, the result is simultaneously light, airy, and romantic. In the next couple of months, we’ll be transforming these extra large pillars into a set of three smaller pillars, still a crisp white and perfect for displaying ceremony florals!
How gorgeous is our brand new Coraline Settee?! Upholstered in a lush, velvet fabric, her color is a mix between merlot and berry, and we could not be any more obsessed! Great for formal portraits, sweetheart seating, and more, we know Coraline is going to be SO popular.
Stay tuned for a post on the palette “The Golden Hour” with lots of rattan and earth tones!

Last weekend, I got to throw an over-the-top, fun, and girly baby shower for my BFF, and I’m SO excited to share the photos with you below! Working at Something Vintage made things pretty simple! I based the party’s color palette around the invitation suite– for the most part, I wanted it to be fairly neutral with pops of color. Think lots of whites, soft blush hues and metallic accents with bright pops here and there! I knew right away I wanted to incorporate pieces like our Dupont Whitewashed Farm Table to create a chic buffet, and our Penny Copper Stools were the perfect way to bring in those pops of metallic I wanted. I always trust Dawn’s vision and everything she touches turns out sooo amazing, so I kept it in the SVR fam for florals too. She created multiple lush arrangements in addition to a super pretty floral crown for the mom-to-be. All in all, the day was picture perfect and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. Now we just have to wait as we count down the days ’til baby Gates arrives!
Did you know Dawn can also make kick a$$ florals?! She has been taking on more and more floral jobs in the past year, and we’re so excited to see where 2019 takes her! This baby shower had a fairly neutral color palette- ivory and blush with metallic accents- so I really wanted to bring in some bright color with the florals. Dawn stepped up and incorporated pops of pink, red, yellow, and orange. The arrangements were full of gorgeous peonies and poppies (hello, new favorite flower!) as well as lush greens and some dreamy spray roses. All in all, the flowers were exactly what I was looking for, and went perfectly with the overall design of the event!
A couple of weeks before the shower, Dawn texted me and asked if I would be interested in a fringe backdrop for the shower. Obviously, the only acceptable response was “Yeah, DUH!” This backdrop kind of became the centerpiece of the whole shindig! It was displayed front and center with one of our Penny Copper Stools and a combo of our Maya and Luna Rugs. As the party progressed, it was the perfect spot for all of the guests to pose for photos in front of!
On the way out, guests were handed pink bubbly to pop in celebration when baby Gates arrives! Custom labels by Label with Love made the favors even more special, and Nika from Calligraphette Co. worked her magic on a copper sign to tie everything together!
