J+G Travels: Nantucket

Nantucket is one of our favorite places to visit in the summertime. We could just drive around looking at all the quaint cottages and historical architecture for hours (and sometimes we do). What started as a fishing and whaling community, has now blossomed into a world renown travel destination. Though the times of change are barely felt thanks to the hard work of the conservation and preservation societies that keep Nantucket the historical gem that it is. As traditionalists at heart, we appreciate all that the island has done to keep its authenticity.

On this last trip, we stumbled upon the loveliest little store tucked inside a shingled home, The Weaving Room. It’s owner, Anna, was kind enough to give us a tour of her workshop downstairs where she hand weaves all the rugs, tapestries and fabrics. She imports all the wool from Sweden (Anna’s homeland) and still uses many techniques and designs based on Swedish tradition. The finish pieces are almost too pretty to walk on!

J+G Design Styles a “Good Luck” Party in Philly

Did someone say party? We always love a good party, especially when it is themed!

A few months back we helped one of our favorite clients plan a Friday the 13th Good Luck Bash! Highlights included chain mail, tarot card reader, handwriting analysis, voodoo dolls, karma-tinis, lotto ticket party favors, and much much more!

The party took place in the client’s home so we wanted guests to feel comfortable and cozy.  We achieved this by incorporating the clients own pieces like the vases, linens, and china to add that personal touch.  We were thrilled with the end result!

Thank you to the lovely and talented Nicol Floral Design who exceeded our expectations!
