As an architectural photographer and stylist, I see through my lens how we create and combine elements of a room to express our style or capture a feeling of warmth. Whether hanging drapes high for drama or small vintage touches that add just the right patina and personality, there are a few tricks of the trade to create a space that’s warm, welcoming, and soulful. Naturally, I particularly love spaces centered around community, comfort, and connection. So when U.S. News and World Report asked me to contribute a few tips to style a living room, I was happy to share what makes this communal space so special. Head to their site to read a few tips and hopefully add even more style and substance to your beloved space.
