LA Style Soiree


What are you up to tonight?

Come celebrate with us, west coast style, as we toast to the fabulous Melissa Magsaysay and her new book, City of Style.

We are designing gorgeous, sunny, California coastal colored blooms in vases, wrapped with vintage travel ads, postcards, prints, and more.

Cocktails, fashion, florals…what else could a Chicago girl ask for?

A Perfect Event Book Launch Party!

Hot off the press!

Finally, at long, long, long last, in our store!

We are thrilled to announce our book, A Perfect Event, is in our hot little hands at the studio.
To celebrate, our dear, darling friends at Pure Kitchen Catering and St. Germain (yep, dreamy duo) are whipping up a sizzlin’ soiree.

We have SO MANY amazing summertime entertaining ideas to share – you don’t want to miss a minute.

Want tiny bit of inside scoop?

Two words:

Boozy Fruit.

Fresh from Clinton, mixology master, Fog Island Grill, Nantucket – my new obsession is sure to inspire your next summer gathering.

Join us, won’t you? Please pop right over and jump right in with the family, the kids, with friends…

Let’s toast to summer and celebrate.

Style me Pretty Pebble Beach Feature!



It’s true.

The entire world LOVES Style me Pretty.

We sure do.

And we are tickled pink – errr – LAVENDER over our latest feature.



Jackie’s dreamy, fantasy of a Pebble Beach wedding was such a major favorite last year, we even feature it in A Perfect Event – our new book.



And these parties are so gorgeous…



We don’t just feature her wedding – we feature her seaside rehearsal dinner – her Lilly Pulitzer Tea Party Luncheon – everything!

Splish Splash into summer!

We love to party, as you know.

Especially in retro rooftop pool party glam style, ontop The W Hotel Lake Shore’s top secret Wet Deck.

Summer in Chicago – views of the sparkling lake – Ohio Street Beach – the sizzling skyline – and oh so much more.

Book Signing, Mitchell's Today!

Today is the day!

We are on Main Street at Michell’s Books, Nantucket from 10 a – 12 noon.


Pinch me.

Honestly, I can say that I have dreamed of this day my entire life long.

My VERY first book signing in a bookstore – not to mention the end all, be all, mecca of old fashioned, tiny, quaint, indepedant and out to sea bookstores.

Let’s see how this one stacks up next to my official first book signing – side by side with Guy Fieri – with Sunset Magazine for Sunset Celebration Weekend in San Francisco in early June.

Did I mention, he had a line at least a mile long, waiting to sign ALL of his books?

A teensy bit intimidating…but also completely hilarious to be sitting next toall the same.


It's a Pink Party!

It’s a party…

And YOU are invited.

Have you ever seen a more inviting summertime soiree window?  Don’t you want to jump right into, and join right in that girly girl front porch fun?

We’re just standing here “licking the vitrines” as they say en francais, at Ralph Lauren, Main Street, Nantucket.

The pink and white cabana stripe scallop valence and drapery panel and pillows…so amazing.

The pink hued paper lantern ceiling treatment…total perfection.

The massive pink garden roses – and the white garden lanterns – love!

And by the way Ralph, ahem…

Those lovely white wooden lanterns are exact replicas of our Debi Lilly Design Nantucket Lanterns for Safeway!
