WINNERS FOR BEST PHOTOGRAPHY AND DESIGN AT CEDAR ROOM
CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA
Congratulations, Alisha Cory Photography for BEST Photography.
Congratulations, Lauren Tracy from Direct My Day and her team for BEST Design and Trendsetter.
Designer Lauren Tracy of Direct My Day explains the design vision for the Cedar Room:
“Direct My Day’s whimsical and fun design transports me to a wild and vibrant garden. Bursting with bright colors, the palate features lush greens and playful pinks, with pops of colors throughout. The design invites you to “step into the garden,” creating a magical atmosphere where nature reigns. The decor is enchanting, with wildflower table arrangements, colorful and eclectic furniture, hanging bird cages, and in the heart of the space, a magnificent large tree adorned with colorful flowers atop the king’s table. This lively and inviting ambiance is the perfect backdrop for a summer soiree filled with laughter and joy. Starting a career from scratch at age 37 after being a teacher for 12 years was extremely scary. I am so happy that I let my heart lead me, challenge me, and push me into the right direction”.
