I am feeling exuberant about my product photo shoot last weekend. Although, I usually prefer to work with photographers, sometimes it’s necessary to get creative with styling and work up a little photo shoot on your own spur of the moment. Here are the results of my playing around in my studio last weekend.
I’ve taken a bit of good advice from a friend to hone in on my PInk Pianos style story. It’s been fun to think about what I love about design. Global accents like this pillows are one example.
I often focus on the details…so knobs and hardware are small accents that feel important in designing a piece of furniture.
Another aspect of having a design studio that I love is creating products that I would want to own. These Belgian Linen Gallery style frames are something I plan to create more of as I develop my decor line.
Last but not last, I’m excited to share with you this vintage modern accent chair. Finding the great vintage shapes and pairing them with modern fabric is the genuinely exciting for me.
I hope you have found my photos and thoughts on shop ownership interesting. Enough about me, I would love to hear from some of you about your Journey with product development. How do you find inspiration?..and how have you developed your brand and style? If you would like to be considered for a Friday feature please contact me. I’d love to bring new designers to the attention and benefit of us all!
I am in the midst of refreshing Mary Anna’s home and we are having an amazing time! One goal was to reupholster the living room sofas, chairs, and window seats around the house. I wanted to share with you the progress so far. Here’s a close-up of the new throw pillows.
One thing I appreciate about the feel of this home is how comfortable everything looks and feels.
The guest room also evokes a peaceful feeling. Here you can see the new slipcover and throw pillows I had made from a new line of eco friendly organic fabrics!
The remainder of the day looks busy and I’m looking forward to it! I hope you all are off to a great beginning of the week.
These are the colors I feel most inspired by this Fall….
Clockwise from top left Cicada Studio , Minxden, Hettle, and Namolio offer subtle textiles and accessories for Fall.
Yellowish Orange like the leaves…this first textile can be purchased as a fat quarter and turned into something splendorous…if that is a word.
I am gazing upon the softness of those green ruffles by Hettle. This pillow reminds of the JCrew t’s that I loved this summer turned into pillowcases for Fall. The pincushion by Namolio is perfect in every way. The sherbet pink tones smooth like the autumn sunset. Not to mention it is made from linen, (my latest obsession) and features the tiniest of crochet stitches.
Tomorrow, I plan to show you what I’ve been stitching for the past week.
