A case of mono
Monochrome, timber & mustard - experimenting with styling
Colour is everywhere right now. In all the stores and on all the blogs. And as much as we appreciate these splashes of brightness, Teegs and I still much prefer a bit of monochrome. Especially when it's coupled with warm timber tones and a bit of mustard! It's not very "summer" I know, but we love it all the same.
The other thing I've been enjoying is playing around with styling. I've always enjoyed photography and making nice interior spaces, but I've never actually tried to "style" a shoot. I have to say at this point: THIS IS NOT HOW MY HOME LOOKS AT ALL. You'd actually laugh if you could see what's behind the camera in this shot - all our usual living room furniture and things crammed up against the opposite wall, my house mates relegated to armchairs pushed into the corners to eat their dinner and read their books.

I had quite a lot of fun setting up this shoot, and can't wait to do it again! Of course, all the textiles in this shot are available in our shop, and you can buy the finished cushions if you don't feel like making them yourselves!
