Industrial Chic & Shabby Chic.

Shooting a Victorian terrace in Belfast this week, which belongs to Kelly Ann and Dominic – along with their two young children Evie, aged 2, and Rory, who is only 7 months old.

The Storyline:

The major work had been done when the couple bought the home but they have spent the last couple of years putting their own stamp on it – Dominic loves a little bit of Industrial Chic – whereas Kelly Ann loves a little bit of Shabby Chic – so they have had fun finding a balance between the two !!

The weather at this time of year isn’t ideal, so even in house like this, that has made full use of the natural daylight…

.. on a grey old rainy day, it still needed a lot to light it.

So we started in the main downstairs living area – which was at the back of the house – and that’s were we took the shot of Kelly Ann…

.. before her daughter Evie stood-in to copy her mother’s pose…

.. and then informed her father ‘it was his turn’ – which made us all laugh smile

As Marie later commented when I sent her this image:

That’s the most adorable and bright wee one we’ve ever met I reckon – sure she even had you playing on her xylophone – the “big scary man” was no bother to her 🙂

Anyway, we slowly worked our way through to the front of the house, which is where the kitchen was…

.. which was a bit unusual – as that is where one would normally expect the living room to be – but as you can see that worked very well…

.. and in fact made a lot of sense.

Lots of stairs up to the bedrooms – but with high ceiling and double windows…

.. they were very easy to light…

.. and so we rattled thought this one in record time, after a bit of a slow start.

Shattered – but very pleased with this one – as we both felt Kelly Ann & Dominic had got the balance just right here, between Industrial Chic & Shabby Chic.

So just want to say a big thanks to both of them for making us feel so welcome – and to Evie as well, for letting me play with her xylophone smile

  3. Interesting post Ashley. We have a photographer coming around next week to do a shoot at our home so it was interesting to see what it involves from the other side….
