Style Me Pretty Guest Blog Interview

If you love weddings and fabulous decor, than surely you know Style Me Pretty — just quite possibly the most popular, sought-after sight for brides and decorating mavens alike.

Style Me Pretty is your one stop look book for incredible wedding-inspired design (dresses, invitations, centerpieces…) as well as submitted wedding features of some of the most fabulous weddings that take place each year. I find myself pouring through post after post for hours, delving up delicious ideas for a new color scheme (how can I find a way to use tangerine…), how to casually incorporate vintage (a delicate lace table runner, a ruffled pillow), a clever name card (was that a tea bag?) or stunning centerpiece I must try (coffee beans and lotus pods, stacked hardcover books, vintage bottles…).

If design + beautiful is your language, you will love Abby’s (founder and editor) incredible sense of style and daily inspiration at Style Me Pretty; whether it’s for your next dinner party, design you can transfer to the home, or perhaps even for your wedding.

Rustic elegance, Hollywood glam, modern & edgy — you name it and Abby has brilliantly showcased, designed or delivered on such an entertainers wish. And Abby is the sweetest! Despite her wedding empire, which includes a series of stellar blogs (3 million monthly page views and a brag-worthy Google page ranking of 6 — yes, that is a wedding empire),  she’s a friendly, down-to-earth blogger (all you fellow entrepreneurs/Curious Georges – check out Backstage!) with one basic backbone to her business: to share about all things beautiful.

… and so I was incredibly excited to ask her our four PDB questions! You will love the answers and eye-candy.

What inspires your design style?

For me, it all comes down to details. I love simple, effortless design just as much as I love fussy, over-the-top styling. Picture perfect details that set the tone for the day and give guests a little token of “pretty” are what I am currently loving. For me, it’s the details that transform a really pretty affair, style or design experience into one that is completely memorable. It doesn’t really matter what type of design we are talking about…it’s the little touches that really make a design special.

What do you love most about what you do?

Everything! I have one of the most incredible, unique jobs in the world. I work out of my home, most of the time in my PJ’s, with my daughter and my husband one room over (in opposite directions of course). I can work from my living room, from my bed, from my parents house in houston or from just about any other place in the world. I get to attend fabulous parties with people like Darcy Miller, I get to speak to entrepreneurs about how to grow their businesses, I get to work with some of the best vendors in the world. Everything about my job is complete awesomeness.

What are your favorite design trends?

When it comes to weddings, it’s all about infusing your own personality and style into your design. It’s about giving your guests a window into who you are as a couple. And to be honest, that mantra translates beautifully into just about every element of design. Whether you are designing your own home, a beautiful invitation, an incredible textile…it should always be about infusing your work with a little bit of you.

What are three design suggestions that you would like to offer our readers?

{1} Design based on what YOU love…not what someone tells you to love.

{2.} Before you do anything, take a moment. The best designs are those that are thoughtful and meaningful.

{3} Lastly, design for right now…with elements of forever tucked inside. There is no way to predict how your tastes will change and grow over the years. So design what you love right now, bringing in elements that are classic and completely timeless.
