Itchin’ for a kitchen?

This modern kitchen made me want to paint the walls of my kitchen bright yellow.  (It’s a good thing I didn’t do it because our kitchen has a long exposed brick wall & redish wood cabinets that would look horrible with bright yellow!)  How could you have a grumpy morning in such a bright happy looking kitchen?  I don’t think it’s possible.  It was designed by Elizabeth Aurandt of Mercer Interior.  Elizabeth is not only a talented Interior Designer, but she is also quite an intuitive stylist.  Throughout our shoot, I tried to convince her to venture into the world of prop styling.  She’s a busy lady…we’ll see if she can fit it on her plate!

You call this work?

Some shoot days feel like work but some truly feel like play.  When I arrived at the Hudson Valley home of Interior Designer Sisse Jonassen, it was obvious that I was in for some serious play time.  I couldn’t get out of the car fast enough to see the inside & when I went inside, I didn’t ever want to leave!  I love every bit of the house from the exposed ceiling beams to the wide plank floors, from the found art to the fine art.  My photos and Sisse’s story were just featured on Design*Sponge – according to the comments on the post, she now has a big fan club!  Who’s the leader of that club?  Me.
