If you remember my post about the amazing warehouse kitchen here, then you might also remember that I couldn't show you any more because I had been sworn to complete secrecy. Until now that is! The exciting news and with it an exciting new magazine are out. Warehouse Home is the gorgeous new print and online publication which has launched yesterday. For two days back in September, I was part of the amazing team headed by Sophie Bush (the editor) shooting features for this stunning publication. Sophie had asked me to style some of the main pages and the cover and together we managed to create some beautiful settings - if I might say so myself. So, how about a little tour?
Let's start with the bedroom. Despite the fact that the main lampshade is still missing in this picture (don't forget I took my own pics whilst trying not to disrupt the actual main shoot) you can see what the result of my work is. Sophie wanted to achieve a look that conveys femininity in a usually fairly industrial and rustic space and had chosen the colours accordingly. Powdery pinks mixed with soft greys work so well for this look without descending into a sugary sweetness.
Combining the soft colours with heavy industrial metals is a great way to pull together contrasting elements to achieve a look that works for him and her. The bed which is the main focus here had been especially made for this shoot. That's pretty much as cool as it gets.
Next let's move to the living room. This is the luxurious one, the one for cosy evenings with friends, drinks and candlelight. The room that proves that living in a warehouse can in fact be elegant, luxurious and of course cosy. Deep blue velvet, warm copper, and a stunning rug all add to that warm feel and by the end of the shoot day I was very close to retire to that sofa for the evening.
Styling this space was not only fun but also immensely satisfying. Sophie had a very clear idea of what she was looking for which made it challenging in a good way. It also meant that the feeling of achievement and happiness once it was all in place, photo-ready and perfect was absolutely huge. Being able to post these images now, to share my work and to say "I did this" is something that I have been looking forward to ever since the shoot took place.
The third room set to be done was far more "manly" than the other ones, a gentleman's retreat if you will. Leather, wood, and a heavy dose of vintage give this setting a masculine feel which is perfect against the rough brick wall and the bare wood flooring. And what about that chair?! Isn't it just gorgeous? One of those pieces that, were you to get your hands on it, you'd never let it go, right?
These are of course only my images of from the shoot, if you're interested, you can take a look at and read the whole magazine here. I'm off to another shoot today - I can't tell you how lucky I feel to be able to say this and to work in a field I love. I'll be back tomorrow with a very different post... Until then, keep in touch on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook… xo
