Coffee Talk With Charlotte Designers Part II

Today we’re sitting down with, Summer Hogan, Simply Stylings, and talking about interior design from the DIY maven!

SimpleStylingsdraft72dpi

My passion for design and DIY has drawn me to people like Beth and Summer. While attending the fall High Point Furniture Market I took a seminar, led by Robert Leleux, Editor of Domino Magazine, on the evolving interior design industry. The panel was made up of traditional interior designers and ones that have entered the industry through their own self-taught methods and blogging.  Summer, falls into the later, with her non traditional path into design as a home design blogger and stylist who creates simple style for home and life.

new headshot2

Like Beth, I met Summer through One Room Challenge, and instantly connected with her love for coastal design and décor! Summer will be joining Beth on Saturday for Style Session Live, a way to connect more locally in Charlotte and to provide FREE design advice. You can get all the details here and catch up with Beth, designPOST interiors.

Q: How did you get into interior design?
A: Interior design has been in my DNA since I was born. My mom is an incredible decorator and my dad is a designer and builder of beautiful homes, not necessarily by trade but by passion. We’ve lived in many homes growing up (only within about a 5 mile radius mind you) and I’ve always enjoyed watching and helping my mom bring each new place to life as well as the building process.
Q: What’s your favorite design project to date?
A: My favorite project to date is a tie between my coastal deck and my modern office space. I also love one of my clients master bedroom projects that has almost come to life!
Coffee Talk with Charlotte Designer Simple Stylings || Sarah Sofia Productions
Q: What’s your worst design project or most challenging project to date?
A:  I’m currently working on my dining room and kitchen renovation and I have to say the kitchen has been the toughest challenge yet. Kitchens can be so expensive and when you’re trying to do it on a basically non-existent budget its tough. Also, I never was a math kid so I’ve had all the square foot number crunching I can handle!
Coffee Talk with Charlotte Design Simply Stylings || Sarah Sofia Productions
Coffee Talk with Charlotte Designer Simply Stylings || Sarah Sofia Productions
Q: What and or who inspires you?
A: I’m inspired by so many people and it really depends on the season I’m in but right now I can’t get enough of Pencil and Paper Co.! This dynamic duo has completely blown me away with their style. Not only are their client projects amazing but their own home as well as their fashion sense is impeccable.
Q: How can the average person design a space on a budget?
A: My key advice for the average person to create a space on a budget is patience. Find a few inspirations images that you love and break it down. Hunt for similar finds at budget décor stores such as HomeGoods or thrift stores. Figure out what you can and cannot DIY.  Don’t forget to look at Lowes and Home Depot, which have so many high-end looking options at affordable prices, for lighting, hardware, and décor.

If you only have a semi-creative mind {like Summer} you can still create simple style for your home and life.

Coffee Talk with Charlotte Interior Designers

Since spring is right around the corner, many of us start getting the itch to spruce up our home. Today I am having coffee talk with Charlotte interior designer Beth Barden,  designPost interiors, to get us inspired.

blog headshot 4 super exposed

I met Beth through One Room Challenge and love her eye for design! She is always designing spaces that are fresh, fun and functional. Since we both share the love for a good DIY project and entertaining Beth was a natural fit to be a guest on Sarah Sofia Productions.

If you’re local in Charlotte you must check out Style Session Live!

Coffee Talk With Charlotte Interior Designers

Q: What is Style Session Live?

A: Style Session Live is a way to connect more locally in Charlotte and to provide FREE design advice.  We don’t want decorating to be intimidating and taking 30 minutes to chat with you about your design dilemmas might just be the first step in helping you finally create a home you love!

Q: How did you start designPost interiors and find your style?

A: designPOST interiors grew from a hobby to a blog to doing work for friends and family and now fills my days with small to full-scale decorating projects!  I have always loved design, even as a child I used to rearrange my room on a weekly basis so I am so excited that I get to do it as a legitimate job now!  My style is influenced by everything from my love of the beach to my quest to find the best deals to my desire to make my home feel comfortable and welcoming.  When working with clients I love the challenge of trying to find the right balance of their style, my style, and a few unique pieces for each space.

Coffe Talk with designPOST Interiors || Sarah Sofia Productions

Q Beth: How did you get into interior design?
A: My love of design started basically as a child.  I have always cared about how my surroundings look and get a lot of joy in tweaking things to be just right.  I never thought of decorating as a career and so instead got a degree that I never really used.  It wasn’t until I started getting requests from friends to help them decorate that I really started considering it as a job.  Blogging also really helped turn my hobby into a business.  I made connections, documented my work and style and eventually started getting more and more referrals.  It has been a blast to watch everything grow!
Q: What’s your favorite design project to date?
A: My favorite design project…hmmm that’s hard because I get attached to every room but I really love this one playroom I designed.  We went with an unpredictable black and white color scheme and the room just feel so fun to me!
Coffee Talk with designPOST Interiors || Sarah Sofia Productions
I also have a few projects that are currently wrapping up that I can’t wait to get photographed!!
Q: What’s your worst design project or most challenging project to date?
A: I am probably my worst client, ha ha!  I have tried lots of different ideas in my own house and some have been total flops!  I’d rather try it out in my house than a paying clients so I guess it’s all good! That being said, after several design challenges with my living room I finally love the new and improved space in our home!
Coffee Talk With Design Post Interiors || Sarah Sofia Productions
Q: What and or who inspires you as a designer?
A: I am overwhelmed with inspiration on a daily basis just from other blogs and Pinterest alone.  I also find lots of inspiration from going to actual stores.  I love seeing how they display things and use different color combinations.  If I had to pick one designer though it would most definitely be Emily Henderson- love her!
Q: How can the average person design a space on a budget?
A: Designing on a budget has been the name of my game for a long time.  I have never had millions to spend and even if I did I am just a budget girl at heart.  I am convinced I can find a knock off of anything I want at HomeGoods, Target or TJ Maxx.  Designing a space on a budget is just about having an open mind, patience, and a little guts!

Turning 2 Tutu and Bow Tie Tea Party || Sarah Sofia ProductionsI love how all the details came together, especially these stunning and girly sequin tulle shimmer dresses from OC Kids Closet with the colorful pop of color from the faux jeweled necklaces from Target.  Due to the unseasonable cold day the girls had to wear their favorite pink coats from Gymboree.

Turning 2 Tutu and Bow Tie Tea Party Part I

I have been planning this Turning 2 Tutu and Bow Tie Tea Party for over a year and excited to finally share all the details with you.

The décor was glam and girly with tulle tutu and bow tie invitations to set the theme of the party.

Turning 2 Tutu and Bow Tie Tea Party || Sarah Sofia Productions

Tulle was used for the table décor with gold polka dots for some glam to match the pink and gold polka dot backdrop. I love the fabric and tulle wreath and garland, which adds depth with the multi pinks and golds and makes this such a girly table!

Turning 2 Tutu and Bow Tie Tea Party || Sarah Sofia Productions

Bite size finger foods such as PB&J crowns and shoes, cucumber flowers, tutu cupcakes, gold sparkle donut holes, flower tea cookies, and strawberry cake were perfect for this tea party themed birthday party..

Party Details

Being an event planner and stylist I am always thinking about all the fun details that go into any event or party. It wouldn’t be tutu party without the perfect tutu! My girl’s always get a special dress or outfit that goes along with the theme of their party and these beautiful pink and gold sequins tutu dresses from OC Kids Closest were perfect. The girls helped me pick out their pink sequins “princess shoes” as they call them, from Cynthia Rowley and their “princess” jeweled necklaces and crowns to complete the tutu tea party outfit!

This Audrey Coral Pink and Gold teepee custom-made for Charlotte by Abigails Hands not only serves as the perfect birthday gift and décor item to update her bedroom but a fun detail and play area for the kids at the party.

Guests enjoyed tea party food made with love by Sarah Sofia Productions! The strawberry cake with fresh flowers made by Sarah Sofia Production was a fan favorite! I love the pink and gold cake topper by Kiss Me Kate Studio, which even through in confetti to decorate around the cake!

Guests were given party favors that included princess wands that light up for the girls and fun sticky hand toy for the boys.

Make sure you come back later this week for Part II with additional photos from Airana Clare from our special tea party outside!
