Moore is More!

door: breath of fresh air #806

While recently reading House Beautiful magazine, I came across some ads for Benjamin Moore Paints which had some drop dead beautiful photography and ridiculously genius photo styling. 

This is not a solicitation, I have not been hired by Benjamin Moore. I simply thought I'd share the pretty.

Scenes from a Designing Life

Hello! Too much time has passed since my last post, I know, I know.

Here are some pics to illustrate what I've been lucky enough to have been working on lately.

Styling a Television Commercial

Recently, I was lucky enough to be part of the styling production for a television commercial shoot for Boston Interiors. Kelly McGuill and I were tasked with taking these empty sets and making them into warm, inviting, and stylish rooms to be shot for both TV and print ads. Here is what the empty sets looked like.

We set about choosing pretty pieces from the Boston Interiors collection,  including furniture, carpets, and accessories. We added a few artistic props to give it individuality and a bit of pop. 

Then the TV production took over. Here are a few behind the scenes cell phone shots of the actors, the lights and cameras, and the action.

And below are the finished room shots. We are pretty proud of these. It's hard to imagine it is the same space as before, no?

"On The Cover of the Rolling Stone...."

Does anyone know that song? No?

 OK, so it' s not the cover of Rolling Stone, but it IS the cover of Traditional Home! I was lucky enough to work with Eric Roth, photographer to the stars, and Kelly McGuill, stylist of the century, on this story about menswear designer Joseph Abboud's home in Boston.

The Interior Design was done mainly by Restoration Hardware, using their designers and product. We styled the shoot over several days.
Here are a few pretty shots, get the mag to see them in all their glossy splendor!
And if you simply can't get enough...the website has a bunch of extra photos not in the magazine.
