The latest issue of Home Beautiful has just hit the magazine stands and it features the house I assisted Super Stylist Julia Green and the amazing photographer Armelle Habib, if you haven't heard of this dynamic duo, you would have seen their work in lots of recent magazines. We visited the house back in April - so it has taken 6 months to hit the stands - big lead times! This was a Hamptons style home in the burbs. We got there at 8am and didn't leave until 6pm! Huge day fluffing, moving, carrying things out and carrying things in - the amount of work that goes into a shot like this is absolutely amazing - the days are long - non stop and really physical. It was a great experience, I am so thankful I got a chance to work on such a high profile magazine (still pinching myself!!) this was totally a dream come true!
this was my favourite room of the whole house - the magnificent chandelier was from Schots Home Emporium in Clifton Hill Melbourne.
I'm still pinching myself, I learnt so much about what goes into a magazine shoot - it is not always as it appears!!! believe me!
THE gOLd ChaLK WEBSITEis up and running - another box to tick off on the "to do" list. My BIG dream has grown and developed into this wonderful business, that is called work - I love what I do and I am so proud of what has become of it. If you get a minute - please check it out and let me know what you think!!! There are a couple of very special thank yous I need to make , without these two people, my website would not look or feel as fabulous as it does. 1. Leonie Jane Photography - for her amazing use of the camera - love her shots and how she manages to capture exactly what I was thinking! Please contact me if you would like her details. 2. Katrina from The Media Maid, for helping me pull it all together and riding the wave with me - she has designed the logo and helped with the blog and really got the ball rolling on the venture. thank you both for the amazing job!
