Designer to Watch: August Taylor Design
By Sophie Phelps

Today I’m thrilled to be featuring the work of Seattle based interior designer, Jennifer Taylor. Jenny grew up having a passion for all things design and always dreamed of pursuing a career as an interior designer. After having three children, in 2013 she took finally the plunge and opened her own firm August Taylor Design. Jenny’s interiors are fresh, tailored and impeccably styled. Neutral palettes are paired with antiques and clean lines to create classic interiors that are gracious without being stuffy and leave you wanting more.

When I first discovered Taylor’s Instagram page, I immediately stopped in my tracks and began exploring her portfolio. All of her work is beautiful and my personal favorite project of hers is this Clyde Hill home. It’s truly head to toe perfection in every sense and I would move in tomorrow if I could! The home is adorned with plenty of blue and white, antiques and gilt accents and I have a feeling you will love her work as much as I do!

A light and bright living room with an air of understated elegance

A beautiful mix of old and new and I love the foyer peeking through!

A chic dining room that any hostess would envy

The butler’s pantry is soothing and serene with a modern edge and a lovely view of the dining room

Contemporary meets classic in this cheerful kitchen

The texture filled breakfast nook is one of my favorite spaces in this home. I particularly love the detailing of the bamboo chairs paired with the rug

A charming and feminine office with areas for both mom and kids to work!

Gilt stools and a pedestal table adorned with ginger jars creates a memorable first impression for guests the moment they walk in the door

A rich navy leather ottoman with nailhead detailing is the focal point of this inviting blue and white living room

A mix of patterns and textures and wonderfully styled built-ins bring this cozy corner to life

Gold accents make the neutral wallpaper pop in the powder room creating and added air of sophistication

A beautiful vignette at the landing features a mini gallery wall with a beautiful mix of rose medallion porcelain

The master bedroom is a mix of neutral hues and clean lines

A master bathroom that would make starting any day feel more peaceful

I adore these powder blue parsons chairs with fringed trim in this seating area in the master bedroom

It’s no secret that every piece of furniture @theceh makes is gorgeous, but we needed to rave about them today for a different reason. Have you been following their stories lately? We have been so inspired and humbled by their dedication to their customers that we had to share…

Last month their delivery driver quit mid-delivery with no notice. For weeks now, Diana and Justin, the owners of @theceh have been driving cross country with their children, personally delivering the remaining pieces to make sure customers get everything in time.
