Organising a collaborative shoot requires time and creativity. Of the first one we have too little, of the second one too much. Yet we managed to clear our agendas to try and create a setting that is original, inventive and inspirational. With no boundaries, no restrictions, ourselves as our client, a beautiful collection of small business brands and an empty garage as our studio, our imagination was set free.
It is not only our wall paper addiction that makes us want to constantly spice up the walls in the house, there are just so many fantastic designs out there that we just can not help ourselves and want to bring out the glue as often as possible.
The palm leaf wall paper in the boys room had to step aside for a new design from one of our wall paper friends These Walls. Remember the tiger design from the Jungalow Style shoot? And the Dots from the dreamy girls room? Well now These Walls has launched a fantastic new collection with the blue jungle being our absolute favorite.
Working with Pax and Hart is a dream job. We have been a fan of her work since forever. We have used her art in our own homes, in photo shoots and interior styling projects as they are so versatile and funky.
Last year we had the chance to actually work for this talented lady from Down Under. We were asked to create a concept and style the photoshoot of her new prints that she wanted to present in a homey environment with a vintage yet playful feel.
I know we are not the only ones out there with a stationary fetish. Although we do nearly everything digitally, we often nostalgically look back on the days when we were still carrying around an agenda and a note book. And since those moments are rare, we want it to be gorgeous.
We came across the Swedish design brand Mini Empire. With a range of some beautifully illustrated paper ware, they made our heart skip a beat. Their products are very refined, detailed yet with a humorous and edgy feel so that they work for styling nurseries, kids rooms and for the adults too.
Lucky for all of us they do more then paper ware alone. Mini Empire features a range of playful toys, quirky textile and funky kitchen ware.
