Dreaming of Sea Island ~ The Cloister in Silky Blues

Dreaming of Sea Island ~ The Cloister in Silky Blues

The timeless elegance of blue and white never ceases to fade.  It's classic aesthetic is like a fresh breeze.  Thus when we took to sketching the next generation Sea Island silk scarf and pocket square for The Cloister gift shop, this monochromatic color palette very quickly transitioned from a dreamy design of very loose watercolor brush strokes in varying hues of cobalt blue to the most beautiful interpretation of a custom-designed toile in an azure blue color scheme with white.

Expanding the featured vignettes to include the very romantic Sea Island Chapel was a must when designing the silk scarf composition!  ~If you haven't discovered this charming cottaged tucked into the shadow of The Cloister itself, nearly hidden behind Palm trees and fauna with a curtain of Spanish moss, be sure to make a visit next time you are among the Golden Isles of Georgia.  Its stain glass windows are breathtaking.

Organizing all painted scenes to nest together in a pleasing cadence, while ensuring each gem sparkled in its own right was quite the design challenge.  And then, enabling a repeatable design for each side of the square so that from a distance, the visual contouring of the scarf as a whole would reflect fashion and art... elevated to a new level of creativity.

Never missing an opportunity to paints unique scenes inspired by travels that reflect beauty from around the globe, my watercolor travel set goes with me everywhere.  And a visit down-south to see Page is no exception!

Drawn to our family ties to Georgia and the South, we struck up a conversation with the lovely Olivia Meyer, founder of Banniere Co. ~ Silk Scarves, with the idea to design a Georgia inspired silk scarf.  The allure of the romantic, drooping Spanish moss and fanciful dogwood petals have always captivated me on roadtrips down Interstate-75 from Cincinnati to Atlanta time and again.

It is with great pleasure we had the opportunity to collaborate with this trend-setting and oh-so-elegant boutique to transform sketches into wearable art celebrating Atlanta and the beautiful state of Georgia.  The luscious color palette with hints of navy and slight shades of blue is so striking.

Bringing style and storytelling into the design, we beautifully incorporated the Georgia state bird ~ Brown Thrasher, The Cherokee Rose state flower,  and iconic peach fruit into one elegant and timeless composition.   

Discover all of it's beauty!
