A few months ago I styled some images for the Autumn/Winter Mothercare catalogue. It’s out in stores and online now and here are a few of my favourite shots.
I recently styled the new ‘Made You Look’ campaign for MADE.COM. The idea was to feature everyday objects associated with craftsmanship and design but make them look a little different. These shots would then sit alongside the styled product shots.
Armed with my spray paints, I coloured a huge collection of tools, fixings and screws. We shot lots of tool and colour options and these are the 3 that made the cut.
One of my favourite parts of planning a shoot is to choose the colours and I’m really pleased with the balance of colour in these shots. We’ve also just finished shooting the MADE Christmas campaign which will be out later this year.
We don’t have a lot of storage space in the new flat so some things have to be out on display – there’s nowhere else for them to go! We bought this wooden broom when we moved and it took me 15 minutes to give it a little makeover so it looks nice on display as well as being useful.
You will need
wooden broom – ideally with a broom head that is removable
paint (I’ve used matt emulsion and a clear varnish to seal)
Start by removing the broom head from the handle. This will make it easier to paint. If your broom doesn’t have a removable head, don’t worry, just be extra careful when painting the head.
Using masking/washi tape, mark out where you want your painted area. I’ve just painted the top third of the broom handle but you could use your tape to create stripes or other patterns.
Paint the broom head and handle and leave to dry. Once you’ve painted 1-2 coats, protect your paintwork with a coat of clear varnish. This will help stop chipping and it’ll be easier to clean too. Once everything’s dry, reattach the broom handle to the head and start sweeping! It’s not made sweeping up any more fun but it does make the kitchen look good!
I got to work with dream brand Matter Matters recently on some images. The lifestyle brand, based in Hong Kong is inspired by Postmodernism, Art Deco, Memphis, contemporary Bauhaus-inspired design, David Hockney, Edward hopper, Andy Warhol, and Max Huber. So, when they asked if I would style some of their products, my answer was obviously a YES.
My love of geometric shapes and pastel colours is no secret, so to find a brand that shares this love and creates such fun products is a dream come true!
