Mother knows best.

Susan Serra, aka The Kitchen Designer (who recently brought on her daughter, Kelly Donovan, as her business partner) contacted me to shoot her new line, Bornholm Kitchen.  In talking to Susan about how she planned to launch her new line, she tells me that our hero piece is being housed in the empty living room of her new home… and that’s where it needs to be photographed!  Yikes.  I had doubts about how we were going to make it happen but Susan had full faith.  It’s a good thing because I was not quite sure how I was going to capture the essence of this beautiful kitchen island in the style that she wanted in the middle of a living room!  In the end, we did it.  Susan was right.  Dare I say mother knows best?  Even though she’s not my mother- I guess it still applies, right?
Note:  All of the sites/blogs (links above) were designed by the very talented Nicole LaFave of Design Womb.  I think she’s great.  Really great.

  1. Nicely done! As someone who has worked in furniture making, being able to see the construction details presented as part of the design adds interest and draws my attention. The lighting works wonderfully here also. The white background sets the piece apart from any context and the smooth controlled illumination of the wood panels shows the material and functionality quite nicely.

    There is much to be learned from this series of shots, thanks!

  2. Yeah, you did it. These are beautiful shots. The white background WORKS.
