Purple is my favorite color, though I’ve never used it to decorate in my own home… well, that’s not exactly true… my last bedroom closet was stripped an amazing shade of glossy purple and a matte lavender. But Havilande Whitcomb Design brings purple unabashedly out into the open to create this incredibly fun, yet serene, seating area that I had the pleasure to photograph for Beinfield Architecture. Between the colors, the animal skin, the reclaimed hemlock wood floor and ceiling, the airiness, and the elegant, modern toddler toy, this nook looks like it was designed just for me to sit and read a gajillion books.
I’ll have to settle for the photograph.
I worked with the ladies of Shelter Interiors, Tricia Izzo and Carolyn Kron, to photograph their new, inviting space the day after their Grand Opening Party. We had a great time setting up shots and feasting on the leftover cheese and champagne! Best wishes, Tricia and Carolyn!
And there’s still time before the holidays to take advantage of Shelter’s store-wide 20% off sale!
And here are some rare, behind-the-scenes shots snuck by an unruly Client on her iPhone. Somehow, my trusty assistant, Dr. Kiang, managed to get by uncaptured.
Some chairs I found just laying around the studio files.Â Seemed a shame for them to be collecting dust like that.Â Many thanks to Denise Morocco of Kent Interiors and congratulations, Denise, on your new web site.
As photographers, we may review hundreds of images in a given day.Â Editing shots for clients and promotional use can sometimes be daunting.Â At times, you look and the choice seems completely clear.Â Other times, like this one, there is a bit of back and forth.
Which image do you find more compelling on first glance?
