So as I’ve mentioned a couple of times I’m coming to the end of my current project now, and am starting to think about how to get the best images from it for my portfolio.
I am definitively not the best photographer of all time (any pro photographers in Hong Kong willing to extend mate’s rates to a poor designer?!) so seriously need to think about the styling of the spaces as this seems to be almost as important as the schemes themselves.
I’ve been studying a whole bunch of inspiration piccies to get some hints and tips and thought today I would share with you lovely lot some ideas for styling entryway console tables.
The formula seems to be pretty standard: artwork/mirror + lamp + dish for keys etc. + plant/flowers + scattered interesting knick knacks + storage/seat underneath. As with all styling it’s a question of curating your collection of bits and bobs to ensure it’s not too cluttered and still very functional.
So anyway, here are some of my fave images out there right now. Which style do you folks prefer – the serious, stylish look or the fun bright pops of colour…?
Love these two vignettes with the symmetrical lamps:
And you can’t go wrong with a gallery wall!
Helllllo to the black/white zebra and chevrons here:
And this vignette by Windsor Smith KILLS ME every single time I see it:
And a few all natural options to finish with:
If I manage to get my client’s entryway looking even a tenth as stylish I will be happy!
