Home Beautiful Shoot

My studio and I were the subjects for a Home Beautiful photo shoot today, one of my favourite magazines.

John Downs, the photographer, took the most beautiful images and kindly allowed me to veto any that I didn't quite like.

Check out John's website if you are looking for a product photographer or wish to hire a studio for your own use in Brisbane.

Bronwyn McNulty, the journalist, and I had a lovely informal chat while enjoying our baguette lunch once the photo formalities were over.

I've become obsessed with painting everything white. It's hard to stop once you start. I had the husband painting the window frames but unfortunately I had to do the second coat myself yesterday as someone conveniently got sick :(

I finished painting the fabric shelves yesterday too. They look better in white, right? Don't be fooled as I didn't bother sanding them first as I figured that with using a tiler/laminate primer that I wouldn't need to. Wrong! The laminate paint scratches off very easily so don't take short-cuts like I did if you try it. I will have to retouch before our Morning Tea next week.

I'm not sure when the magazine article will appear but I will let you know once I do. Thanks to John and Bronwyn for today!

Congratulations, how wonderful for you. The white looks fabulous. I too have succumbed to white. My whole exterior of the house is even getting a makeover.

Thea - how exciting! Can't wait to see you in Home Beautiful :) Yes, the general consensus seems right, about painting everything white - I like it too and a famous artist (I forget which one) insisted on all his frames being white as it allowed the art to be the focus of the viewer.
