What’s better than shooting Interiors at the home of an Interior Designer with her own line of pillows? When the home is in Brooklyn, of course! Those who know me know I’m quite the homebody. I love being in my home, and when I do leave, I stay within a 10 (ok, sometimes 5) block radius. Shooting for Interior Designer Audra Canfield, the creative mind behind Designer Fluff, was a treat (did I mention she pulled out a chilled bottle of rose during lunch?). Not only was the shoot a blast, but I am now the owner of an amazing designer fluff chevron pillow. And now, not only do I not want to leave the 5 block radius surrounding my home… I don’t want to get off my couch!

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!
There’s nothing I don’t love about The Brooklyn Home Company. The People? Check! Their Style? Check! The Locations (Brooklyn!)? Check! I only wish they could build and design their spaces even faster than they already do (which is pretty fast) so I could shoot with them more often. Looking for a new home? Go buy one of their newly renovated spaces, now on the market- you’ll be very happy.
Check out The New York Observer HOME Fall 2010 issue featuring one of my shoots with The Brooklyn Home Co. This was a great space to shoot. Actually, I wouldn’t mind living in it either! Story starts on Page 69.

Though I am sometimes haunted by the pressures of social networking, it has actually gotten me a few jobs. An old friend (who I haven’t seen in almost 10 years!) and I are twitter buddies. Tweet heads? Twitteries? Twitsters? Is there a name for a person you are connected to via Twitter? Thanks to @nicnewcomb, I have been shooting for Brooklyn Home Company. They flip brownstones. They are designers. They are artists. They are fun. They are extremely talented. …and most of the shoots are within 5 minutes of my house. Sounds like the perfect client to me. Maybe I can get them to redo my apartment and then I won’t have to leave home for the next shoot!
