As we head into the weekend I wanted to share some photos from last weekend’s photo shoot for Matalan department stores. Typically Christmas shoots take place in August, so this was a bit of a late one.
The location was a gorgeous house about 20 minutes from the seaside city of Brighton. Owned by an architect and designer who runs a business called, brilliantly, Unteriors.
The bookshelves on the right – and out of the photographer’s frame – are the way we found them. You know I love a messy bookshelf. To the left is what I did, all propped out with vintage books and Matalan product. Great for catalogues, not so much for real life, right? A perfect example of what I was saying about catalogues (I’m talking to you Pottery Barn) not being true to life. They’re aspirational, not realistic.
We even got the family dog in on the action. So sweet, he didn’t mind the bow at all!
Only 80 days, 16 hours, 38 minutes and 51 seconds until Christmas! (Thank you Google, for knowing everything).
