Sometimes a girl needs to have just the right item for your special night out.  Something that sets you apart from the rest.  That’s when you need something like one of the above necklaces from Pamela Goose.  She is a brilliantly talented jewelry designer based in Northern Virginia.  This beautiful fashionista began designing jewelry 14 years ago.  It all started out of necessity, as she was constantly looking for a statement piece to complete her outfits.  I was transfixed by the one she was wearing the day we met.  That led me to a second meeting, to shop for myself and to learn more about these treasures.

As we met for coffee I gazed at the table full of her treasures that she brought to show me. I was overwhelmed with the unique beauty in her designs.  ”I created them, wore them to work and literally sold them right off my neck!” she shares with me as I drool over her necklaces.  The thing that strikes me is that the materials are so special and unique, like nothing I have seen in the stores.  Each necklace dazzles with the perfect balance of opalescent sparkle and deep rich tones.  ”I love using authentic stones, crystals and freshwater pearls! Each one is one of a kind, so your piece is special! ” explains Goose.

As a fashion stylist I am so excited to share her pieces with you because I believe we should all have a few special accessories that are truly unique in our wardrobes.  Nothing beats a on-of-a-kind necklace.  Leave me a comment if you are interested in purchasing one of her exquisite pieces.  And remember that I am always available to help you analyze, accessorize, and update your wardrobe so you can style just the right outfit to match your new necklace!  -Meredith

Hire a Decorator for your Holiday Decor | Meredith Ehler | Decorator | Northern Virginia

 

Finishing touches, as tedious as they can be, make all the difference.  I just spent the day at one of my favorite client’s houses and decorated her beautiful home for Christmas.

We love our holiday decor here in Virginia!  I was honored to make this beautiful home even more festive.  After an initial home visit and consultation, I shopped for my client for all kinds of holiday goodies!

Just adding a touch of red berries makes plain old garland look rich.  The berries are on what is called a “pick”.  Everything I shopped for was on sale 60% off 2 weeks before Christmas, which is crazy, so I bought up everything I liked.  The picks were 32¢ each!  A bargain!  And I LOVE a bargain!  Adding pine needle picks or real branches from a live tree finish the look of any table top or mantle.

I layered my client’s dining room table to make a beautiful table-scape.   We started with her own tablecloth, bunched up to give it more life.  On top of that is a beautiful gold thread embossed table runner, topped off by diaphanous tulle.  I love using wired ribbon to add height and depth to a display.  I leave it just as it comes off the roll, in it’s naturally curled state.  I just twist and turn it as I release it.  Beautiful glass garland hanging from her chandelier adds a bit of shine.

Don’t forget to layer.  The homeowners beautiful table cloth has gold thread running through it giving off a bit of shimmer.  Her plant and candles placed on top make the perfect setting for her new birch tree Santa.  Don’t ignore the cute baskets that house knick-knacks around your house.  Toss a few branches and ornaments on the top to make them pop.  Have fun decorating and know that there is no such thing as too much Christmas decor! -Meredith
