New in the shop: Marble Desktop Styled Stock!

Last week we gave all of the print shop owners some love with the release of styled frame stock on marble backgrounds (yep, you read that right MARBLE…le sigh), but we just couldn’t bear the thought of leaving out all our friends who don’t sell prints. That is why we have something extra gorgeous for you today!

We are swooning over the new Marble Brand Builder Set to hit the SC Stockshop and we know you’ll love it too! We have stunning black, white and gold desk accessories perfectly paired with lush succulents to create a one of a kind styled stock option just for you!

These images are perfect for those of you who love the editorial look and classic SC style but with a fresh twist! These marble backgrounds are also a great option for those of you who sell white paper goods and struggle with overlaying them on the classic white background styled stock. These are also perfect if your style is a little less…pink (we know there are a few of you out there!). Basically if you’re reading this, we think these could be perfect for Y-O-U!

Have your pick of individual listings or get them all in the discounted Brand Builder Set. You won’t want to hesitate as these are already going fast! Will you be one of the 20 few to incorporate these gorgeous new styled stock images into your brand?


Any excuse to wear a gold sequins blazer.

Sooooo, as many of you know by now, my bestie Ashlee and I shared some big news yesterday on the blog and Instagram!  This super exciting collaboration has been a long time coming and so, of course, we needed to have a best friend photo shoot for all of the (shameless) self promotion that we would be doing!  Its pretty sad that Ashlee and I have almost no pictures together in almost 14 years of friendship.  So, needless to say, a best friend photo shoot was in order and in celebration of the launch yesterday I thought that I would share some of the images with you along with some of the fun outtakes and details behind the shoot!  You will actually see this first set of images again in another secret project that Ashlee and I have in the works! Shhhhh!

For this shoot we brought in our friend and clothing stylist Megan Adams who pulled from our closets to create two looks for us – one casual and one…let’s say “fancy”.  For the first look we wanted something dressy casual, polished but approachable, fun and also representative of our two different brands and styles! (You got that all Megan?)  For Ashlee that meant boyfriend jeans, nude heels, a classic white t-shirt and a silk blush pink J Crew bomber jacket that she borrowed from my closet.  To compliment this look with a “Shay” spin Megan pulled white denim, my favorite gray J Crew t-shirt, strappy black heels and a black lightweight H&M blazer that she pulled from Ashlee’s closet (real friends share clothes right!?).  Megan pulled it all together in a way that represented us each individually while looking cohesive for the shoot.  I can’t wait to tell you what this first set of images is for but thats news for another day!

We are goobers when you get us together so Laura of CIHI photo had her work cut out for her!  Laura is a mutual friend and super talented portrait photographer. We shot in Davis Island on the most perfect little street as a massive storm rolled in. I’m not even kidding. By the end of the shoot the whole street was without electricity! Despite having almost no light, Laura made it happen!  We love you Laura!Ashlee+Proffitt+Shay+Cochrane+Collaborate+Tampa+Florida_1897

The second portion of the shoot was going to be used for the launch of our new line of inspiration wall art for the stylish home so we knew that we wanted this look to be a bit, shall we say, fancier!  For this look Megan put Ashlee in black fitted pants with a beautiful mixed media black blouse and nude pumps. How smokin’ hot is Ashlee is all black!? (She will hate me for saying that! tehehe) For me she pulled my favorite leather pants, white t-shirt, strappy black shoes and this phenomenal gold sequins Sam Edelman blazer that I picked up earlier this year for a special occasion (perfect right?)!

Megan  was on hand for the whole shoot to ensure that not a messy cuff or sloppy tuck was out of place. Seriously, everything in the #scstyleguide I learned from her!  She is phenomenal and does closet consultations, personal shopping, and wardrobing styling for events (and every day life!). I would be lost without her.  If you are drowning in a closet full of mediocre stuff you don’t wear with no idea where to even start to be fashionable – she is your girl!

This next one is possibly my favorite from this set!  I love this girl.

Warning, sometimes in a best friend photo shoot things start to get awkward when people walk by wondering what in the world you are doing… and you tend to fill that awkward with…more awkwardness. haha

Inspiration art for the stylish home: A palm print collaboration



I am SO excited I can barely contain myself!  Many of you already follow my talented bestie Ashlee Proffitt. She and I have been scheming about a print collaboration together for YEARS but never felt like it was the right idea, or the right time (you know the feeling!) until we created this.

2015 Shay Cochrane APxSC-Introducing-Instagram

Vibrant photography mixed with graphic text resulting in inspirational art that is on point for the stylish home!  The collection contains four 11×14 individual art prints that read home, love, hope and rest.



We carefully and thoughtfully selected each of these particular words because we need them to be constant reminders within the walls of our own homes and truly hope that they will be an encouragement and sweet reminder in your home as well!

We are also very excited to have created a stunning and dramatic 24×30 fine art palm photographic print that is a focal point either on its own or when paired with a smaller print. Gorgeous right?!  This idea was born out of looking all over for the right oversized wall art for my newly renovated living room and not finding anything that really was a great fit.  So, I created something for my own home that I hope you will love in your home as well!  Palms are SO in right now but are sure to stand the test of time and for someone who has trouble committing to an accent color, I know that I can never go wrong when I bring natural greens into a space!

Free Gift

We are over the moon excited about this collaboration and hope that you love it as well! And to sweeten the deal, the first 25 orders will receive a FREE 5×7 version of the palm photographic print to layer with your new wall art!

You know you want one! Pick out yours here.
