Thought it might be nice for another installment of recent styling work. The last six months has seen a fairly intense work schedule and I missed sharing many of the holiday projects that hit newsstands during the season. So we’ll just start fresh this year with this modern Alabama farmhouse for March issue of Country Living.
First, we need to talk about this little coffee alcove! Isn’t it a genius use of a small space? I would be happy to start my morning here every single day. I kept the styling to a minimum since it was pretty fantastic on it’s own. Only adding in the antique rug, fresh florals, and a plate of tiny apple crullers. The homeowners, Paige and Blair Thornton usually keep a Keurig in here but for the sake of editorial beauty I swapped it out for a French press, added a basket tray for warmth and texture and the coffee accoutrements. I love how the black flush mount fixtures add a graphic pop to the space and seriously covet the knitted stool Paige found at Tuesday Morning!
The September issue of Country Living is our Small Spaces issue. It’s one I look forward to every year because I’m fascinated by folks who scale back their home size, pare down belongings, and live in petite places. Have you ever watched Tiny House Nation? Obsessed.
I thought it might be fun to share how I styled each space within this 1,143 sq.ft. California ranch and give you some tips for using the concepts in your own home.
Over the years, there have been countless times I’ve been asked for advice about my career. Depending on where the person was on their own path, the questions would range from photography advice, blogging and brand image topics, to how I got started styling, and what it takes to work with magazines and major brands. I’ve realized there are so many creative people wanting to pursue their passion and learn to refine and improve their own body of work. I also noticed there weren’t many offerings of teaching others creative and editorial styling. Most were geared towards the wedding or floral industry and not specifically on professional styling.
So after a year of contemplating the idea of helping others learn the art of styling, I’ve created The Academy – A Creative and Editorial Styling Event.
The first week long event will take place next spring in Dordogne, France. I’ve reserved a small private 15th century chateau exclusively for our group May 14-21, 2016. Taking time away from our daily tasks and environments will allow for relaxation, inspiration and creativity to overflow. I’ve designed an amazing curriculum to share with you including intensive lectures and hands-on styling sessions and have included fabulous excursions to antique brocantes, 11th century villages, picnics, and authentic French open air markets. In essence, I can’t wait to share with you all my favorite things about France while we explore and learn the theories and best practices of creative and editorial styling.
You can learn more about the itinerary I created and additional details about the event by reading The Academy Brochure.
