Staging with florals
On Wednesday our house was shot for an Apartment Therapy house tour. I’m super excited to share it with you when it goes live (in about a week or so). It was a completely different experience than the Woman’s Day shoot. Woman’s Day involved a photographer, assistant, stylist, hair and makeup person, editors, props and an entire day of arranging and re-arranging. The Apartment Therapy shoot was one guy, a camera, some lenses and a light. If you read both of these online and print publications, you’ll know that Apartment Therapy likes more candid shots and lots of tight vignettes versus the more polished shots that grace the pages of Woman’s Day. Since Wednesday’s shoot didn’t come with a stylist and a van full of props and florals, I had to do my own styling (which was nice because I get to keep the props this time). I bought some grocery store florals and used some of my new found knowledge from the garden club I am joining. Here is an arrangement I did for the dining room in one of my favorite vases from Target (along with a new plant that replaced the fig that finally bit the dust).
And another arrangement in the living room that I did in a fun footed brass bowl I got at a garage sale.
