Founder, and interior designer of Studio 1049, Bethany Williard, has an eye for creating beautiful spaces, and a knack for hammering out unique, one-of-a-kind designs.
When I visited her home, last week, I stumbled upon a hand-crafted table, that she designed, and built for a client. I instantly fell in love with this console table, made of refurbished wood (sourced from Construction Junction), industrial-styled pipe and flange, legs. It was the perfect pairing of romantic charm, and a modern edge.
The wood tells a tale of it's own, through the notches and lines, that are etched deep within the chestnut brown. I was instantly inspired to use the piece for my next shoot.
I knew I wanted to capture the essence, by showcasing some fall pieces, on and around, the table. With the help of my friend, we set off into the morning fog, and fell through our own looking-glass.
She placed simple pieces along the table's edge, careful not to take away from the simplistic beauty of the table itself.
Bethany's custom-made creation, can be crafted towards each individual customer. The piece is versatile for various rooms, and original tastes.

Below are a few ways that Bethany inspired, and helped me decorate my own console table.
As we traveled further down the rabbit hole, we grew more and more inspired by our surroundings, and each other's creative vibe. Bethany, and her table, stuck around to help me feature this fall's floral prints.
Prints of large flowers bloom onto threads this season. Plum and hues of dark pinks, sprout from romantic-inspired patterns, and are beautifully paired with darker undertones.
A little glitz and glam, such as, gold and crystal, help to bring out the flourishing arrangements in your wardrobe.
Don't be afraid to mix patterns with a dark lip, this fall. Try Bite's, Elderberry for a gothic look, adding a bit of edge to your romantic side. For a more subtle, look, try Chanel's, Rogue Allure Velvet, #40 (La Sensuelle).
Dare to be a little mad this coming season, by mixing your prints and pairing with the unusual. Have fun with your mix-n-matching, and bring out your inner Wonderland this fall.
