Understanding Interior Styles

By Marie McMillen.

We specialize in interiors and are therefore only too aware that there is a huge variety within that field – be it classic, traditional. contemporary, eclectic, …. or, as we were shooting yesterday, a style that is hugely popular these days – ” Modern Country”.
Behind the scenes
It is our job to understand each style – basically because lighting, composition, and styling vary considerably depending on the style of the home.

“Modern Country” style is all about gentle lighting, pretty flowers, trendy wellies, cupcakes, Cath Kidston towels and Cabbages and Roses cushions etc !! Very much creating the dream of country living. Not everyone can “escape to the country” – but anyone can emulate this style to a greater or lesser degree wherever they live.

Our job is to show how that’s possible:

Added note – 12th April 2011 – 25 Beautiful Homes magazine will be featuring this home later on this year – so that’s one to look out for.
