There are a few beautiful shoots from the end of my pregnancy that never made it on the blog. This clean, inviting bedroom is from a timeless, New England home I’ll share with you soon.
Today I’d like to talk about styling. Most often I work with the home owner’s belongings to style a shoot. Furniture and decorative pieces may be moved around the home. Sometimes we bring in food or plants or accessories. But in this particular home, we really only needed to move items for the sake of the camera angle. I cannot wait for you to see the rest of the home. It’s so relaxing and inviting with interesting pieces to look at everywhere.
Sometimes I end up with more than one final shot, intending to decide on subtle styling differences during the editing process. For example, above. So if you could please tell me, orchid or no, I’ll pull together the full set to share with you next week. Maybe I’ll even ‘iron’ the bedspread for you… You’re going to love it so much, you’ll be wishing for a Thanksgiving invitation to this cozy home.
So, which one?
If you’re new here, (or you just don’t remember because it’s been so long), on Wednesdays I open up the comments for you to tell me which view from a recent photo shoot you prefer. And why. I love hearing what you have to say. You can peruse past Which One? features here.
Happy Friday! Enjoy the beautiful summer weekend because soon we’ll be breathing in the cool, fall air. xo
The little guy is giving me a moment to share with you a recent spread of our photos in Connecticut Cottages and Gardens magazine. We do love working with them. You’ve seen this wonderful Beinfield Architecture pool pavilion before, but it’s great to see it around town in a glossy magazine.
I hope you are enjoying your summer as much as I’m enjoying mine. Tons of photos are happening here, with no time to post them, but we’re starting to rejoin the land of living. Some pictures of the little guy are coming. I promise!
This luxurious, subterranean wine cave, designed by Andrew Bartolotta AIA of Beinfield Architecture, won an award in the months I’ve been off the internet grid. The Connecticut AIA bestowed the coveted Encompassing the Art Award for Architecture on this project at the end of 2012.
I can’t help but imagine the award had something to do with the wall of brightly colored cylinders that are actually repurposed snare drum cases. That’s clearly my favorite design element because if it’s uniqueness, but also because the LED lighting glows through the acrylic adding a playful sparkle to what could easily be a much more serious room.
All I need is a tasting table and a cocktail dress…
Last week we had some puddle controversy. The outdoor shower should be luxurious, not distracting. Who wants to be reminded they need to go home and mop their floor? Nobody. Especially me. My floor, which I am ignoring in favor of work so far, has a light sheen of toddler from all the ice cream served this past weekend.
Since I have another week to get this competition entry together, we are revisiting our modern, Cor-Ten, pool pavillion. I promise, after this post I’m going to be sick of it. Actually, I don’t think I could ever get sick of this amazing structure, which I just learned was originally conceived as a tractor rusting away in the field, but I promise to show you a different project next week since this is the 3rd time (who’s counting?) I’m asking you to chime in here. Without further ado, here’s the big questions:
Which image best represents the outdoor shower?
Thanks for all your input. I really enjoy the discussion every week. And I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I’m thinking of crashing the Pool Pavillion…
