PREVIEW: photoshoot

Last year, when I decided to offer my collection in oxidized sterling silver and sandblasted acrylic - I more than doubled the depth of my collection -- creating the need for photographs of the designs in these new finishes. I enlisted my good friend, Anne Ingman of INGMAN PHOTOGRAPHY, to photograph my first round of new finishes AND new work. Here is a preview ... with more to come.


McAllister Addition & Outdoor Masterplan

We met Pete and Beth McAllister almost 7 years ago when our house was on the Minneapolis/St.Paul Home Tour. They later hired us to design their basement renovation in 2005. Beth was with us as my doula during the birth of my first son, and we then worked with them again to design their dining room addition and a master plan for their backyard. Souliyahn recently (and finally) went over to photograph the addition and outdoor project. The grasses have grown-in so beautifully and everything looks fantastic! Next step: photograph the basement!

Apartment Therapy

Speaking of my photographer friends Anne and Jake, their house was featured on Apartment Therapy yesterday.....along with one of my original pastel pieces (in their bathroom) -- Thanks for the shout-out in the list of credits, Anne! Your house looks so great!

Wedding Design: part 2

So, the wedding that I spent all spring working on went off without a hitch. Everything turned out soo beautifully and was captured with unbelievable delicacy and attention to detail by my friend & wedding photographer, Anne Ingman & her husband Jake of Ingman Photography. I'll be able to share a more in depth collection of the images she took, as well as more commentary about the visual concept and aesthetic approach at a later date, but for now check out her blog post here.
