Happy Monday, friends! Did you have a great weekend? On Saturday my apartment was photographed for the Bright.Bazaar book – it was such an exciting day that at times I hardly felt it was real. It was so interesting to see how my place looked through a photographer’s lens (after all, we know how different a room looks the moment you put a camera on it, right?!). I’m thrilled with the results and can’t wait to share my the special place Mr. Bazaar calls home with you all when the book is published. I can’t deny, it’s not as grand or spacious as some of the places we’ve shot but I can promise you that’s personal, and that’s what matters, I think.
Speaking of personal spaces – have you ever framed any of your own photographs as art for your home? This is something I love to do and my walls at home are full of photographs I’ve taken that evoke a special memory or inspire me to remember the calm or joy I felt at the time of taking it. One of the latest pictures I’ve had printed and framed is this sun-soaked snap from a trip to Menorca a few years ago. It details traditional Spanish, white-washed building adorned with a vibrant bougainvillea, each branch proudly reaching for the sky. I love the contrast between the purple, white and blue and it now sits proudly on the picture shelf above my bed where I regularly switch up the art. I’m so pleased with how it turned out in the frame – what do you think, folks? Wishing you a great week!
