From 60’s groovy…

.. to classic simplicity.

Just before the end of last year, I shot Marie’s recently renovated 60’s house for a Christmas magazine feature, in one of the national publications. So at the start of the year, we decided to shoot a few of the other rooms for smaller features on ‘How to create the look’ – to show readers what can be done.

The en-suite in her master bedroom was perfect for this – so we kicked off the New Year by shooting it.

I’ve got to say, I smiled when Marie first showed me around the house because I knew that groovy yellow bathroom suite…
.. with those tiles, would be the first things to go 🙂

Having said that, it was interesting to note that she didn’t actually need to change the layout…

.. making it therefore quite cost-effective – and I personally like the fact that it’s very simple and not too girly too…

However, if there’s one thing I’ve learned for shooting homes, is that everyone has their own taste & style – so beauty is very much ‘in the eye of the beholder’ – and that’s what makes our job so interesting.

Anyway, once again, I loved what Marie did here…

More to follow… but in the meantime, I’d just like to say, a very Happy New Year to everyone.

From Marie, me and the rest of the team @
