Oh what fun it is to paint a wall purple – especially if it’s just for the day!! I was in my glory the day we took these pictures for the website. I hadn’t been in a studio for months and the creative process of bringing together a bunch of pretty things – many my favourites from home – was totally exhilarating. But even better than that was working alongside other creative (and need I say good hearted?) friends who also brought favourites from their houses – it was just too much for one girl to take!

My dear friends Sam Sacks (shown below) and Trish Johnston (carrying a pillow of course) helped me out on the big day. You can’t be creative alone – or at least it isn’t as much fun! Trish is a professional stylist and immediately understood what I was trying to achieve. Sam is a writer and editor but just so happens to have a great eye and a wonderful sense of personal style and so she was our third set of hands.
Our modus operandi was to create images that would express my message which, as you now know, is about personal expression, happiness and joy in our homes. The girls got it immediately and photographer Virginia MacDonald made it so easy for us to create (yes, paint her walls purple) in her incredible space and captured the essence of the lightness and prettiness that I think is missing in decorating today. What a team! Thank you to all three for being such pros.
