A delightful way to kick off the weekend... my recent styled shoot was published today on Ruffled!
My friend, Angel, and I had daydreamed about this editorial for months - kicking around ideas and deciding on the concept of mixing textures with light. When Epicurean Hotel opened its doors, we knew that there could not be a more perfect spot for this modern, fresh concept. I chose royal navy, copper, and hints of blush for the color palette and thought about contrasting that with more natural elements like air plants, mixed wood surfaces, and leaves.
Noor, of Showorks Events, helped flush out the design installations - including hanging Edison bulbs that Angel and I had been hoping for since we first approached the design. Showorks blew me away (and not just because they let me crash their offices and play with their flowers & ask a million questions). I can't say enough nice things about them!
There are so many more involved in this shoot... I could gush forever. Please scroll through & take a peek at all of the collaborators at the bottom. They're talented, interesting, wonderful, fun & I can't wait to work with each and every one of them again!
