(well,...i've been busy,..and haven't told you all what i've been up to!)
not so long ago, a friend of mine, who is also a fabulous photographer asked me to come on board and style a booth at a photography exhibition for him.
check him out. his work is lovely.
i had a limited budget, and a couple of days to come up with something that would suit his style of photography and also his personality.
masculine/edgy/industrial/on trend/and eye catching!
booths at exhibitions are so incredibly dull.
you can walk from one to the other and barely notice the difference.
not this booth.
i came up with a really simple colour palette that would work with the black walls of the booth.
vintage industrial brown - including glass, wood and cow hide
soft pink magnolia blooms
white industrial lighting feature
so very simple.
first i mocked it up at home in front of a black wall to make sure that design wise it worked.
the bare bulb cluster worked beautifully with the sculptural magnolia branches.
vintage industrial stools with a pop of colour were both masculine and visually interesting.
by hanging vintage frames over sections of photographs, your eye is drawn 'to the drama'. you can use a method like this at home to add dimension and visual interest.
gorgeous photographer, james. a bit easy on the eye too! ha!
clusters of brown apothecary bottles are striking without being overwhelming.
a vignette of daphne, books and vintage cameras.
the round bulb worked well with james' gorgeous, sculptural image.
there you go.
an exhibition booth with a bit of personality.
