Sharp suits, sleek dresses, and a sufficent supply of champagne marked the opening of Birmingham interior designer Ware Porter’s flagship store Ware and Co. in Mountain Brook Village yesterday evening.

Friends and family of the Magic City decorator ate, drank, and enjoyed the merriment of the festive opening inside his new storefront. Spirits were high, and the only blue moments came from the color incorporated in his cool, creative decor that has become one of Ware’s signature looks. Crisp white walls, bright cerulean stripped floors, plush couches, patterned pillows, grand artwork, and Christopher Spitzmiller lamps adorned the comfortable space.

“I’m inspired by the coast, from the Hamptons to Old Miami,” Ware said. The Birmingham native has been designing Southern homes for years and described his store’s aesthetic as “playful” and “coastal” which is evident throughout the shop’s luxe yet laid-back interior.
