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!
