Coastal Cool.

Is the title of our latest published work in the April 2018 issue of Ireland’s Homes Interiors & Living magazine…
The cover plus pages 56 to 69 in the April 2018 issue of Ireland's Homes Interiors & Living magazine featuring Marie & Alan McMillen's renovated 1960's home near Holywood in County Down.
.. which is on the cover plus and pages 56 to 69 – which features Marie and Alan’s renovated 1960’s house near Holywood in County Down.

“Marie transformed a dated mid-century home in Holywood using lots of weatherboarding, tongue & groove panelling and a crisp palette of blues and whites.”

Which I talked about shooting here: Natural direction of light and here: Left or Right, a few years ago.

So congratulations once again to Ms. Coastal Cool here…
Marie McMillen
.. for making it into Ireland’s largest selling monthly interiors and lifestyle magazine, as well as making it onto the cover too Wink.

Life sometimes has a way of carrying us all in different directions…
.. as change does seem to be the only constant.

Anyway, it’s been a while since I have done a shoot with Marie – however, we do stay in touch and hook up from time to time, as over the years we have created a pretty major picture library together – plus being good friends for so long, we do talk about lots of other stuff too…
Though we may seem far...
.. which included her laughingly telling me about this new project she had started on – which was this 20-year-old “granny wagon”…
20-year-old caravan
.. is how she described it

“Sooooo – what’s my vision ?????

I’d actually like to give it a kind of Neptune feel…
.. It will be fun”

– she wrote a few months ago.

Anyway, long story short, last week we decided to combine a business catch up with a fun shoot of her little caravan – which she called Twinkle btw!!

And all I can say is her vision…
.. and ability to transform something so ordinary…
.. into something like this…
.. once again amazed me.

So here’s to a day filled with good food…
Food in the caravan
.. and good friends – on Valentine’s Day with a Twinkle
