Part of being a lifestyle brand is engaging with other beautiful brands that walk hand in hand with our elegant, coastal style. We know that a home is comprised of pieces from many different places, and its important to us that our product will not just stand out from the rest – but we want to make sure our pieces compliment the rest as well. We have found that the coastal inspirations and whimsy of Spartina 449 are truly complimentary to the Emily McCarthy style.


Do you love Emily’s scarf in the very first photo? It’s darling and it’s even more precious because it’s a scarf with the map of Savannah on it. Click either of the images above to make sure it’s in your wardrobe!




We hosted a sip and shop event at Spartina 449’s downtown Savannah location at the end of October and had such a fun experience. The baubles, the totes, the devotion to seaside life – it truly aligns itself with all of our favorite things! How gorgeous is this store?

We see the girl with signature style who can’t get enough of a great classic, brown cross body bag. Inside it she has a journal to keep all of her fresh and exciting ideas about her passion. The Spartina 449 Savannah map journal tugs at our heart strings, because it’s so important to keep home close to you no matter where you are. She never leaves the home without a bit of sparkle and a bit of sass. Spot cheetah around her neck is a must!

She’s also the kind to have her folded notes closeby so that no matter what adventure she’s on, she’s sending love to those who fill her heart the most.

Sunny days at the beach are truly among the best days on record. Sometimes, however, getting together the perfect beach bag and accessories for the day’s outing can seem like a never ending task. You’ll need refreshments, of course, and the perfect bag.


Our stemless acrylic tumblers don’t just bring the party, they practically are the party! Double walled and ready to hold onto your favorite beverage (juice for the kiddos, maybe some wine for you?) they’re durable, and they’ll add a touch of class.


Choose your favorite color combinations and fro the little kids to the big kids, everyone will love their new sippy cup!


Finally, take a look at this sneak peek of Emily McCarthy for Hayden Reis! This beach bag is so chic, so durable, and just what you need to tote your necessities in.

Make them both yours for this beach season! It’s going to be a hot one.

Pssst, things are feeling rather celebratory around here! (You know how much we just adore a good party.) The talented Kimberly Whitman has published an ode to the monogram showing their ever present status in the modern home. Monograms are the new language of chic, and they offer countless ways to brand your life. We were thrilled that we got to lend our own style to the pages. 

Celebrating the grand entrance of monograms into today’s requirements for a curated domain, Monograms for the Home dusts off the idea of the family insignia being a relic and shows it shining bright as a reclaimed staple. Purchase a copy for your own monogrammed home by clicking here.

I’m super excited to announce my collaboration with the Fabric and Wallpaper House, Cotton + Quill! Over the years, I’ve really enjoyed pattern design and often dreamed of putting my designs on wallpaper and fabrics! My dream has come true with the help of Mary Catherine Folmar and I’m thrilled with the results. The collection will be available for purchase in the Shoppe as well as to the Trade (Interior Designers/Wholesale) directly through Cotton+Quill. If you are interested in trade, please inquire at [email protected] There will be a launch online soon in the Shoppe so you can purchase by the yard! The collection officially launched at High Point Market last month and it’s been receiving rave reviews! Check out how a few supporters have been using the fabrics!

[Designer Notes: I wanted to create a Coastal version of the popular Art Deco and Scallop patterns ]EmilyMcCarthySpotCheetah

[Designer Notes: It wouldn’t be my signature collection with Cheetah! I played around with color palettes and as you can see, the multi colored version is the most popular!]Flamingo

[Designer Notes: This pattern was designed for my daughter, Lillian’s nursery. I wanted to combine my favorite elements like flamingos, palms, pineapples and bamboo to create a tropical and colorful oasis for her room!

Cutting Boards by Emily McCarthy

Exciting collaborations are happening in the Shoppe as I aim to build a lifestyle brand around entertaining and personalized luxury. When I discovered Maple Leaf at Home, I knew this was a perfect fit for the vision I had in gift-gifting. By combining beautiful products and my monogram designs, we have been able to launch the Emily McCarthy Collection for Maple Leaf at Home nationwide. I’m thrilled to pieces about this new partnership!

All of their beautiful products are available for purchase in The Shoppe! Choose your shape, handle feature and monogram style!

These make a beautiful wedding or anniversary gift – I just gave one to a new bride and groom and they were smitten!

Emily McCarthy for PSA Essentials

I’ve been busting at the seams to announce something I’ve been cooking up for the past couple of months! Throughout my years in gift retail, I have become a big fan of PSA Essentials and their infamous self-inking return address stamps. PSA approached me about launching a designer collection available to all 1200+ of their retailers. I jumped at the opportunity to offer my original monogram designs to so many people nationwide. The popular signature monograms, new bamboo and greek monograms, along with a handful of additional designs are offered to the preppy and coastal-loving shopper. All of the designs also compliment all of the products available in the Shoppe so you can mix and match the perfect combination. If you are a retailer and would like to offer this to your customers, please contact [email protected]. Also, if you’re attending the upcoming National Stationery Show, I will be in the PSA booth for a Meet and Greet Tuesday, May 20th at 10am. Hope to see you in the big city!
