Coastal Calm - Open House

Home Life Magazine styled by Simone Barter-1.jpg

As we have just finished adding this home of Brooke & Alex's over on our "Home Tours" tab on the website, Anoushka & I through as we had such a fabulous time styling this Noosa beach side home that we wanted to share more images and it would be a fun way for you to see a little of what goes on as it takes many, many days of prepping, pick up stock from suppliers, organising interstate deliveries and even ironing (not our fav job)! Really we wanted to share our creative chaos of what happens on a home photo shoot and some behind the scenes that we always capture but never really share until now!
Styling this home for us was all about layering and adding unique pieces that showcase what Brooke and Alex had already created, we wanted to keep that coastal vibe that Noosa has to offer but with a relaxed and stylish look. We also love finding new talents from around the country so we can show off new creatives and allow their hard work to be showcased, eg The bedroom wall hanging by Arizona Story. This home already had great furniture to style with so we just adjusted the layout of pieces so Anastasia could capture the space through the lens. We loved styling the shelves in the kitchen, everything we added just popped with the dramatic backdrop of the black subway tiles with black grout and perfectly framed with the black shadow box. Brooke has such a fabulous mix of vintage and modern pieces, which is a great way to create a home. Even with this modern build, the house feels like a home and we got the pleasure to add final touches. 
We are so excited that this home is showcased in issue 4 of Home Life Magazine for you to get all inspired with the styled pages that have been created for you (plus we love the matt paper it is printed on). Here is more images straight from the mag...
 

Our photos below are of behind the scenes with starting of a selfie of Simone with a car full of props, snippets of the stunning homewares with Brooke and Alex looking super relaxed in front of the camera, Anastasia's sexy legs showing off her camera skills to the dark night time pack down of the chaos ! Nou and I love sharing our sometimes not so glam stylist life style over on our instagram page (@stylelifehome).
