taste had the great pleasure of participating in Newport Life‘s designer showcase this past week. In eight short days we, along with two other local design firms, designed, hunted, gathered and installed all of the elements of a living room in a historic oceanfront property. (Then, on the ninth day, we photographed, dismantled, and packed it all up!). Look for photos of each designer’s room to be featured in Newport Life’s upcoming Home issue, due out in April.
Truth be told, we get pretty exhilarated around here preparing for a photoshoot. Even more so with only a week to get it picture perfect ready.
Fresh flowers and live plants is one of our tried and true tricks to finishing a taste-tailored room. Once again, we relied on mother nature’s gifts to complete our space this week. Big thanks to David Urban of Jamestown’s Secret Garden for lending his talent and enthusiasm to the project. We’re so fortunate to have him in our community.
Floral excerpts from recent and past photoshoots follow below, for a burst of color to warm up your mid-winter weekend. Kudos go out to the photographers who expertly captured these blooms, and more – Robyn Ivy, Kyle Caldwell, Danielle Lefebvre and Nat Rea.
Only the best,
Our gift of thanks to Newport Life Editor Annie Sherman was a color-saturated bouquet by Secret Garden.
