I admit it I have a girl crush on Jill Sharp Weeks. Every time I spot an image on Instagram, I am fascinated. I love her refined curatorial eye, how she has honed in on her own distinct aesthetic, and her passion for the old and imperfect. Let’s take a look at how to get Jill Sharp Weeks Collected Organic Look, or attempt it.
It is aptly stated on her website “HER WORK EXPLORES THEMES FROM WIDE-RANGING CULTURES AND PERIODS IN CURATED JUXTAPOSITION”. You can see more of her beautiful work on her website here
Here is the darling Jill on her wedding day. Of course, the dress, the flowers, the carefully curated jewelry combine for a beautiful collected “signature jill” look.
I was introduced to Jill’s work back in 2010 in House Beautiful and by my friend Joni from Cote de Texas in her article Christmas at Jill’s here. Jill was the creative director at Ballard Designs at the time. Her Atlanta home was coveted by many after the House Beautiful spread. That home had so many layers of interest, she had us all begging for more.
Later we oohed and ahhed over her Charleston Rental home You can read about her former Charleston rental home here in House Beautiful .
You can see more of Jill’s work in my post, Instagrammer’s who Rock the Collected Look in Black and White
I am most fascinated by the small gathered vignettes she creates on Instagram with elements from nature, the past, and the present.
Only Jill could create a unique vignette around a head of cauliflower.
Texture Porn…layered, organic
Fast forward to date. Jill currently (I believe) has homes in Charleston and Santa Fe (two of my favorite places), perhaps Atlanta, Brays Island?. If you follow Jill on Instagram you can catch glimpses of both and any project she is currently working on.
She has a passion for stone of any kind.
Jill most often favors texture over color. This vignette really rocks my world. Love the monochromatic madness, layers of texture on texture.
Black and White usually reign supreme in Jill’s designs. It’s the eclectic mix of the elements that always catch the eye.
This image illustrates perfectly what sets Jill apart. If you look at the upper half of the photograph, you view a wonderful pair of vintage sconces and an antique mirror featured above a lovely stone fireplace. The bottom half is pure Jill (a giant dried piece of cactus with a funky interesting (umbrella stand?) a modern lamp and a vintage scrubbed table in the foreground…fascinating…
Only Jill could create this surprising mix of foraged, utilitarian, and earthy elements on a console on her Santa Fe porch.
Her fashion sense is equally as refined…collected, layered, and distinctive.
She dresses like her house. A series I hope to explore in the near future. Here in Charleston.
Her styling is always a study in contrasts, a mix of the refined and the rustic.

If I were to attempt to describe Jill Sharp Weeks Unique Distinct Aesthetic I couldn’t begin to. She has a refined Ralphlaurenesque look that is only hers.
Jill has been an ambassador for the creative Fete Home. They have a nice article about her ambassadorship as well here.
