I recently styled some lifestyle shots for HAM with the brief to use no colour – only black, white and grey. It’s one of the first shoots I’ve ever done that was completely monochrome! I was a bit scared at first but I actually found it a lot easier than my full colour shoots. I’m thinking about banning colour from my sets forever! Of course I’m joking. Can you imagine?!
HAM’s lovely new wall stickers are launching soon!
I had a little DIY day this weekend and tried out one of the projects from Hester Van Overbeek’s new book Crafting With Mason Jars. There are over 35 projects to choose from, all involving glass jars, bottles and containers.
I chose this wall mounted vase DIY to tackle on Sunday. It was so simple and took me around 30 minutes (with paint drying time). I love it and think I’m going to incorporate the idea into our wedding decor next year!
Next up I’m going to try the mini terrarium, hanging light and hanging planter DIYs. We always have so many glass jars leftover each week from cooking/eating so this has really encouraged me to recycle them in a more useful way, rather than just put them in the recycling bin!
Crafting With Mason Jars is out now, published by CICO Books.
I recently worked with HAM to style their new collection of silhouette wall stickers. The stickers are nice and big at around 1 metre and are completely repositionable. They are also really thick too! That might be a weird thing to say but it’s true. I use a lot of vinyl stickers and lettering on shoots and at events and most of the time, they are pretty flimsy and easy to tear when applying. The HAM stickers are a dream to work with! And easy to remove too so perfect for renters.
Here are some of my favourite images from the shoot.
The stickers will launch in April and I can’t wait to see how people style them in their homes.
The new season clothing, bedding and feeding has launched at Mothercare and I was happy to be involved again in the styling of the new S/S 2016 collections. Some of the clothing designs are so cute and I’d love it if they made them in adult sizes. It’s my dream to permanently live in dungarees!
You can find the new ranges in store, online and in the catalogue now. My styling for Autumn/Winter 2016 and the new collection – Julien Macdonald x Mothercare is coming soon too!
