10 (pretty dope) videos about home style.
Today I want to share with you the intro video about the series, giving you a sneak peek into the sets, the rooms and the tips. The scope of the entire production was so huge, and yet the second I got on set with the creative team (too many to name but Chris, Todd and Nick were my directors/guides for the week) it felt comfortable and like we were just chatting. Just us girls.
People snapped some behind the scenes photos while I was styling and you know how I feel about behind the scenes shots.
I just cruised around with copper cocktail shakers and styled these pretty spaces (with the help of Meg, Scott, Ginny and Brady, of course).
But you want to know one of the most hilarious parts? I had a body double. Technically she’s referred to as a stand-in because she was never on camera. But a few weeks before the shoot they asked my height and weight for a stand-in so they hired this 25 year old Russian MODEL, that was might height and had blonde hair and fair skin but thats pretty much where the similarities ended.
You see when I was working on another set or in hair/makeup they needed someone to sit in for lighting/positioning purposes that way when I finally sat down they didn’t realize that there was a lampshade directly behind my head or a huge shadow on my left ear or something.
So this nice lady sat there in my stead. She was also available for all my nudity scenes should those come up.
This shot is HER:
And then this one is ME:
As my stunt double she was also ready and available for all extreme styling action moves, like when I paint the ceiling whilst standing on a broomstick, reupholster a chair underwater, etc.
What you’ll get out of the videos is what I love to talk about most – how to style and add that personality through pieces you might already have or just a few quick changes/purchases. Its unexpected uses of things, learning how to combine styles together, and how to choose pieces that work with any style, year round … and its all pretty budget friendly. We have living room, bedrooms, dining/entertaining and even a video about bathroom styling. Because bathrooms are people, too.
The first video will be released monday, so stay tuned, but meanwhile watch the intro video about the project with some sneak peeks of the whole series.
Here you go, friends. Happy Thursday.
