Being relatively new to the world of blogging, I was delighted to hear from my dear friend, artist, stylist and photographer, Ali Allen, that I had been mentioned on the Decor8 blog last week. I would like to thank Holly Becker, it is fantastic to be featured on Decor8 and read the enthusiastic comments from a few of her 48,000 daily readers. Also a thank you to Iris for being a wonderful host and making us so welcome when we were shooting her beautiful house.

Decor8 - 1st May 2012 - 

I just heard about London-based photographer Catherine Gratwicke from Iris because Catherine is photographing her home today for an upcoming book (congrats, Iris!) and so I had to check out her portfolio and I’m so glad I did. Catherine has a great eye and enormous talent for interiors photography and stills. I thought I’d share a few glimpses of her work today so you can be inspired too.

    The quality of light in the photos in beautiful, but so is the decor! I love the tiles (or is it wallpaper) around the fireplace in the first picture. And the owl cushion?! Want one! Also, those blue shelves with the blue and earthy hues crockery, such a lovely combination of colours.

'Vintage Flowers' - Vic Brotherson

My latest photographic project is 'Vintage Flowers - Choosing,Arranging,Displaying' by the effortlessly talented Vic Brotherson. We shot the pictures over a year to make sure that Vic could get hold of all the seasonal flowers and the result is a book that is both a visual feast and informative.

Visit Vic’s shop,Scarlet & Violet at 76, Chamberlayne Road,London NW10,it is wonderfully inspiring and not only full of amazing flowers but features many vintage finds that Vic sources herself,vases,tables,ceramics all to showcase her beautiful flowers.
