The old saying goes, "the devil is in the details" but from where I stand, behind the lens, there are no mistakes, there's nothing to rethink, there is only beauty: curated and thoughtful moments, intentional design, and exceptional style. This is what I have come to love about Laurel Powell. As both an Architect and Interior Designer, she envisions the full scope of the homes she touches and it makes sense that no detail is left undone.
Recently, I had the joy of shooting and styling one of her Chattanooga projects. This was a beautiful classic home, rich with tradition, and timelessness. In what might be an impossible balance for some, Laurel has single handily gathered all the substance a house can hold and arranged it perfectly. Her outdoor living space incorporates a depth through layers of texture and clever pattern. The open and airy kitchen is grounded with a gorgeous natural stone island and balanced in perfect scale with a statement pendant. I could go on, room by room, but I will let the images tell the story instead.... this home shines bright and was a joy to style.
As always, I consider it a gift to work with such talented designers and an honor to see this project in Southern Home Magazine.
