It was such a treat to shoot and style designer Raquel Garcia's recently revamped home on Connecticut's Gold Coast. Raquel's design story is a sweet one: the home's previous owner, a mother of three, was careful to choose the home's new owner. Raquel was looking for the perfect home to raise her own three girls, and this Connecticut gem was the perfect fit. After totally gutting the interior and adding several endemic Southern accents (think: a painted staircase, white ship lap, and killer custom acrylic and brass details), the home feels totally fresh and open. It's yet another illustration of Southern styling and attention to detail subtly implemented throughout a home... one on the Long Island Sound, nonetheless! I'm so happy to finally share this space with you—and a big thank you to Elle Decor for the amazing feature!
It’s always a treat to work with a dear friend, Memphis-based designer Sean Anderson. It’s even better when it’s his own home! Although you may not guess it from the photos, the family moved into the home as is. No renovations whatsoever! Sean decided to repaint the entire space—in matte black with white floors, no less—and plans to remodel the home in the coming years. It’s remarkable what a fresh coat of paint, a few green and white blooms, and an eye for design can do. Thank you to the incredible team at Elle Decor, it is always such a pleasure to work with this talented group!!!
I am thrilled to partner with Dering Hall today and share my styling and photography expertise!! I felt like I was a photographer long before professionally picking up a camera in the way I wanted to capture a sense of "stillness" and "light" in a moment. Since then, I have carved out my own niche and have developed a successful formula for my clients when it comes to styling and photographing their beautiful spaces. I like to think that I add a layer of "practical fantasy" and "proof of life" as I style and shoot a space. To read my tips, please head over to DERING HALL and learn how I shed some light and life behind the lens. Xx
