Entertaining With :: Jennifer & David

Today we’re kicking off an all-new series on CamilleStyles.com – one I’ve been dreaming up for awhile, and I couldn’t be more excited to see it finally become a reality. There’s nothing I love more than sneaking a glimpse into the lives of inspiring, creative people…and with this series, we get to uncover the little entertaining secrets that make their soirées ooze style and personality. I can’t imagine a more fitting subject to kickoff our first post than Austin-based design-duo Jennifer Elsner & David Shields. Click through the images (shot by Chelsea Fullerton) for all the inspiring details!

Stepping into the Elsner-Shield’s airy, East Austin home instantly makes you want to kick back and settle in a while. Open and uncluttered, it’s filled with meaningful objects that hint at the cool-without-being-hipster taste of these Brooklyn transplants. When hosting get-togethers for friends, they keep things low-key, focusing on a few key details that are as perfectly executed as their modern, thoughtful design work. No matter the time of day, a cold bottle of Lilet, red or white, is always pulled out when guests arrive – putting everyone in an instantly celebratory state-of-mind.

    I love these images! I also love how Jennifer and David carefully select what belongs perfectly for the situation, from the right cheeses for the cheese plate to the cans in the kitchen. Classy, clean, and fresh.

    Everything about this is breezy, inspiring, and totally chic. It makes me want to be a fly on the wall in their home, to see what other cool design influences take place on a daily basis.

    I bet the invites to this party would be just as cool as that icy drink. Jennifer and David show such great style in the most simple things they design- whether a cheese platter or a high-end logo. Thank you for showcasing their work- I only wish they catered!

    I LOVED this and was thoroughly enjoying the post … until I saw the fridge shot. Then, I was like WTF?? Whose fridge really looks like that? I mean, I WANT mine to look like that and I’m generally neat and clean and we always have lots of Topo Chico and spinach… but our fridge definitely doesn’t look like that! ;-)
