One benefit of working on multiple interior photography projects with the same designer is that you really get a sense of their design, and certain signature elements start to stand out among their body of work. Clawfoot tubs, unique light fixtures, a great sense of colour splashed against neutral colours. Tone, shape, style, they all come together and leave a signature that is distinctly that of the designer and builder. Emma at Grassroots Design & Build definitely has one that I appreciate photographing, and it makes sitting in someone elses’ bathroom a pretty pleasurable experience while you work.
I wish I had a kitchen like the one we shot in the Civic Hospital neighbourhood. I’m sure my wife does too, counter space in spades, but a very functional island with lots and lots of storage. The home was old, like many others, so there were some un-even ceilings and walls to deal with (nothing in life is level or true) but the subway tile helps us not pay too much attention to that, and a giant black board helps keep the decoration fluid and important messages of the day as timely reminders.
The same home had a fairly conventional bathroom. The budget didn’t allow for any relocation of the fixtures (I try not to photograph a toilet if I can avoid it), but with the right fixtures I think the design makes it a very pleasing experience.
Those blinds you see? Also classic Grassroots Design touch. I like them enough I think I’m going to order some for my dining room. Interior Photography can get pretty expensive if you start coveting the stuff in the homes you visit.
