Heard about a sweet cottage in Hendersonville, North Carolina, with
rustic charming bones but not so charming decor...yet.
I immediately decided this charming home would make a great magazine story
so...I rounded up the A team!
Good friend, Kim Kelly, master remodeler, drove up from Saint Simons Island, Georgia to be my accomplice and
local flower designer/forager Hannah Hall was delighted to bring life to the space
with her rustic floral creations.
Flying in from Los Angeles, I packed linens from my prop closet,
Kim brought some fav pieces from her neck of the woods,
Hannah allowed us to raid her home stash
and talented cottage owner, Ellie Navarro, stitched up fresh pink pillows.
Here's the journey of Ellie's sweet cottage and its "style-ization"
beginning with the living room.
This is the cottage when we arrived...
And voila! After a day of madness, this is how it ended up...
Then, as the magazines love details and vignettes
I photographed a million of them...
Stay tuned for more of Ellie's bungalow photoshoot
I'll take you behind the scenes so you can witness how
this shoot came to be...
