Shooting STYLED the book, was definitely a labor of love for me on many fronts. It took over a year to concept/produce/shoot/edit. It also took some very talented people to produce like my friends Scott Horne who helped style it and David Tsay who shot it, and at times I even said that it felt like one of my own children. It was a 2 year process. GEEZ. Now, after having two children I realize that a book is far different from a child, but the amount of love, sweat, time and work that went into it really felt like it could have been my third child. With that said, the book would not have been possible without some insanely talented artists, designers, and creatives who let us come into their homes to style and shoot some of their gorgeous spaces. We have profiled a few of those designers and artists already on the blog (Jessica Helgerson, Emily Katz) and today I wanted to introduce you to another space that we shot for the book but hasn’t yet been shown in full here on the blog.
Talk about an insanely beautiful space. I will let the pictures do the talking but the owners of this place, (Tomer Devito of Native Content and his wife) have some serious style which made shooting and styling it much easier for us. It is a perfect combination of casual meets collected, and every inch of their home is curated in such a simple and timeless way.
In case you are wondering where that lovely copper mirror came from, he made it. (Talk about some talented people).
We profiled the kitchen a while back on the blog and walked you through how to bring some personality and color into an all white kitchen, but man this kitchen makes a very good case for an all white space.
The office is stacked with books, records, and keepsakes – it is definitely a place I would not mind working in.
If you are into the look (because you are a human person) we have pulled together a “get the look” with some very similar pieces to get you started. Thanks again to these lovely homeowners for letting us into their home to shoot such a beautiful home.
