Shelley worked with Dixie artist Shanna Masters to create the beautiful holiday tastemaker collection pictured here. Shelley had a clear vision for her collection to include reindeer as well as an evergreen and pine cone garland. Shanna's artwork turned out to perfectly complement the same level of elegance found in Shelley's interiors. We think the finished product is so chic!

Dixie Holiday Tastemaker Spotlight: Julia Amory of India Amory

We're happy to continue our Holiday Tastemaker introductions with Julia Amory, founder of India Amory, a lifestyle and home goods brand working in Indian block printed cotton of varying weights. The concept of India Amory was developed after  Julia was unable to find printed fabrics she loved at an affordable price for the tables at her Southampton wedding. After designing her own wedding table linens, she was inspired to leave behind her financial services career to pursue what she discovered was her entrepreneurial passion! Her company now offers both ready-made and custom printed textiles in a limitless array of colors and patterns. Julia was born and raised in New York City where she lives with her husband, Minot, their newborn daughter, rescue dog, Hudson, and dachshund, Gracie.

For her Holiday Tastemaker Collection, Julia worked with Dixie artist Inslee Fariss who created the beautiful artwork found throughout the collection. Inslee's floral illustrations were inspired by the bold motifs and graphic block prints found in India Amory patterns. We are thrilled with the resulting Southampton collection and we're excited to pair the menus and place cards with our holiday tables adorned with India Amory linens! 

Continue scrolling for our Q&A with Julia to learn more about her holiday traditions as well as what most inspires her creative work. We have included additional images of her beautiful tastemaker collection at the bottom of this post, but you can shop the full Julia Amory Holiday Collection on our website.

Dixie Holiday Tastemaker Spotlight: Erin Gates of Elements of Style

Dixie Holiday Tastemaker Erin Tubridy Gates is the founder and principal designer of Erin Gates Design and is also the creator of the award winning design blog Elements of Style. Her design work and writing has been featured in various publications such as O the Oprah Magazine and InStyle. Erin published her first book in 2014, the New York Times bestselling Elements of Style: Designing A Home & A Life and her second book, Elements of Family Style: Elegant Spaces for Everyday Life in April 2019. 

Erin worked with Dixie artist and Creative Consultant Holly Hollon who created the artwork and graphic motifs for her Tastemaker Collection. Holly used the inspiration board that Erin made for her above as a guide as she was illustrating the citrus tree, magnolia greenery and chinoiserie designs, all reflecting the classic feel of Erin's interior designs. Holly particularly loved the Pierre Frey wallpaper included in the inspiration board, coincidentally, also one of of her favorites! You can see where the wallpaper inspired the magnolia scallops in the finished collection. In addition, Holly felt it was important to include some greek key patterns in the collection since Erin had a holiday collection last season with Wayfair of greek key stockings, pillows and tree skirts.

We have included our Q&A with Erin below. Continue scrolling for the rest of her beautiful Holiday Collection which can be shopped here.

Dixie Holiday Tastemaker Spotlight: Jane Scott Hodges of Leontine Linens

We are thrilled to introduce our next Dixie Holiday Tastemaker, Jane Scott Hodges, the founder and owner of Leontine Linens. She has spent the past two decades studying, collecting, and innovating the world of fine linens and has set herself apart in the design community with custom linens that are at once beautiful and practical for today's reality. A noted lecturer and author, Jane Scott will inspire you to take a fresh look at the way you live and entertain. 

Jane Scott was paired with Dixie artist duo Tenn Hens who created the emblems and embellishments for her cards. Bonnie Cross and Currier Stevens of Tenn Hens pulled their inspiration from the Delcambre embroidery styles found on some of Jane Scott's linens. Bonnie and Currier were drawn to the vintage and delicate feel of the Delcambre emblems and felt that the dots made the design feel festive. Also, after seeing images of Jane Scott's New Orleans home decorated for the holidays, they loved the idea of using a rich jewel tone on the artwork similar to what is found in her holiday decor.

We hope you will enjoy learning a little bit more about Jane Scott from our interview with her below. We have included additional images of her beautiful tastemaker collection at the bottom of this post, but you can shop the full Jane Scott Hodges Holiday Collection on our website.

Favorite Holiday Tradition:

For so many years, making ornaments with my children was an important holiday tradition for our family.

Venti skim cappuccino with almond milk

Dixie Holiday Tastemaker Spotlight: Chassity Evans of Look Linger Love

Dixie Design Holiday Tastemaker Chassity Evans is a blogger, Charleston, South Carolina dweller, wife, and mother. Launched in September of 2010, Look Linger Love is her daily lifestyle blog where she explores her passion for style in fashion, interiors, and entertaining. She has been featured on and worked with many brands including Real Simple magazine, InStyle Magazine, Garden & Gun magazine, and many more.

Chassity worked with Dixie artist Evelyn Henson who created the vibrant and festive artwork found in Chassity's Tastemaker Collection, which was inspired by Chassity's resort, colorful and feminine style. We love the nods to her beloved South Carolina hometown found throughout the collection's artwork like the bright punches of citrus trees and garlands. 

We have enjoyed getting to know Chassity through the process of creating this collection, and we are excited for you to learn more about her through our interview included below that reveals her holiday traditions, her favorite childhood books, and even her hidden talent!

Favorite Holiday Tradition:

All of it. Starting with breaking out the Christmas music in November. Collecting ornaments for myself and for gifting. Overloading the tree with lights. Holiday parties! We throw a big party every year and it's always one of my favorite nights of the year. Cheesy holiday movies. Sharing all the sweet moments with my kids, like finding the Elf on the Shelf every morning. And making all of my favorite childhood recipes.  

Favorite Late Minute Holiday Gift Ideas:

I buy a lot of quirky ornaments early in the season to have on hand for gifting, so this is usually my go to idea! A really decadent box of handmade chocolates from a local shop never fails to impress. And I also love sending Greetabls to those out of town!

Most Memorable Read:

Both the Babysitter's Club and the Sweet Valley High series were basically my best friends growing up. I was a huge book worm. Now I'm re-reading all of my saved BSC books to my daughter Lilly. We're already on number #40! She loves them almost as much as I did!

Favorite Home Town Eatery:

Charleston has so many amazing restaurants that it's too hard to narrow it down, but Xiao Bao Biscuit, Little Jacks, and Lewis BBQ are a few of my favorites.

Prized Possession:

They're not special and probably definitely not what you're looking for here, but my troll collection from my childhood brings me so much joy. They're displayed in my kids' playroom and seeing them there everyday is just the best!

Most Sentimental Christmas Tree Trimming:

My Granny made me a set of crocheted ornaments that are my most favorite of all. I have about 15 of them and they're all different colors! 

Go To Hostess Gift:

Callie's Biscuits!! Its makes breakfast so easy for the hostess to easily pop in the oven in the morning.

Hidden Talent:

I can rap! I mean, not well, but I can keep up and it's usually a crowd shocker! It's good to keep people on their toes.

Starbucks Order:

I like my coffee simple, plain black! So boring. 

Dream of being as a kid:

This is embarrassing, but one of my first memories from childhood is telling my mom that I wanted to be a bird when I grew up. I really thought you could actually be anything you wanted to be. And I thought long and hard and decided that I wanted to be a bird. Ha! Shortly after I wanted to be in the Ice Capades and I also wanted to be a singer/dancer!

Trick of the Trade:

Living with a "Go For It" mentality! Every day. Wondering "what if" is one of the worst regrets you can have in life!! If you have an idea, plan for it and make it happen. If it fails, it's okay! At least you tried! And if it works, well then that's where the spice of life lies!

Probably not so hidden, but I love to find something beautiful at a really great deal!

Decking the Halls with Cloche Designs' Laura Nell Burton

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  For Laura Nell Burton, this means decking the halls of her lovely San Antonio home with elegant holiday flourishes inspired by its existing teal and yellow color palette. Laura Nell is the Co-Founder and Creative Director of Cloche Designs which specializes in event and wedding design and planning. The Cloche team is well known for its dedication to creating lovely meaningful details for their clients.

As one of our 2018 Holiday Tastemakers, Laura Nell was able to collaborate with Dixie artist Gina Langford to create a customized holiday paper suite (shown above) that also mirrors the yellows and teal hues found throughout her home. 

Laura Nell's regal paper collection sets the tone as she prepares her home for her holiday entertaining. With her daughters' help, Laura Nell adorns her home's exteriors and living spaces with an abundance of fresh greenery and teal velvet ribbon. 

Laura Nell's beautiful table setting elements include Arte Italica Medici Wine Glasses; Herend Queen Victoria Dinner Plates; Anna Weatherley Harvest Gold Chargers; and Sasha Nicholas 24K Gold Salad Plate. The linen napkin is by SFERRA. The flatware is Reed & Barton Grande Renaissance and the stemware is William Yeoward Fern. Dixie's Creative Director Holly Hollon penned the gold calligraphy on each of the place cards.

This menu is also part of Laura Nell's tastemaker collection and can be shopped here.

Laura Nell carries the yellow and teal color scheme through into all of her wrapped presents each year. She will order one type of wrapping paper and then will buy her ribbon in a variety of widths, textures and shades.

We love how Laura Nell has incorporated her monogrammed crest gift tags not only on her wrapped presents, but also on her party guest favors shown above and below.

Known for never leaving a detail unturned, Laura Nell has even carefully color-coordinated her own as well as her girls' beautiful outfits to match her holiday color palette! 

Stay tuned for our Tastemaker Q&A with Laura Nell coming next on the blog!
