As July is inching closer to us, so is awards season for builders, remodelers and designers. We are working around the clock to get our best projects ready for professional photo shoots to be entered in Houston's Best and the Texas Star Awards.
Today, one of my favorite projects is getting photographed Brad Carr who does sensational interior photography. But a lot happens before a space is photographed-- it has to be staged.
Staging a home for a photo shoot is no easy task and can take several days; cleaning, arranging furniture and accessories and adding the final just-perfect touches like fresh flowers so the photographer can create beautiful images.
Being a former collegiate diver, my assistant Erika was voted the book arranger. She climbed up and down that 15' ladder for 2-1/2 hours arranging the books and making sure they were perfectly lined up. I prayed the entire time that she wouldn't fall!
With a few more final touches, this space is going to be perfect!
*Cindy's tip: I suggested to the client that she turn all of her books around so that the paper is facing out. This gave the bookshelf a much more unified look while using the hundreds of books she already owned!
This shot of the master bedroom gets me so excited for the photo shoot. Artwork and fresh flowers will make this space so incredibly beautiful! More to come!
