BEHIND THE SCENES OF A PHOTO SHOOT....




Remember that kitchen I posted about....

Well it is cruising along at a snails pace.  These kitchen cabinets are a process to install.  

I am so excited that it's going to be on a kitchen tour in late March!  The bad part is they had to come take a picture the other day for the brochure.

Uh huh....and the fact that we pulled that off is nothing short of a miracle.

I can't reveal too much but I wanted to show you a little behind the scenes.

Here is the setting when I arrived with a basket full of accessories and some branches of Quince.

This was at 1:30 and the photographer was arriving at 3:00!  Still installing shelves...and Lisa [the homeowner!] was wiping down the appliances.

The marble had been installed a few hours ago.


This Currey light fixture was laying on it's side!


Here is a close up of the marble....and the sink


And.....about an hour or so later....


Simple restaurant supply white dishes the homeowner bought second hand!!!  I love them.
Good eye Lisa:)


Styled up!  
 If you look closely there are some things missing.....


And....if you turn to the right you will see this!


Hahahahaha....the light fixture is hanging on a hook.  It just goes to show what you can do with a little lipstick.....but of course we had a pretty nice pig to put it on!

OK....I have to get to work on my presentation for tomorrow.  
Definitely running behind on this one.

That kitchen is going to be fabulous. I love that light fixture in there. I love the addition of unlaquered brass with gray! It really brightens it up!

This is beautiful and thanks for showing the full picture. I think what's missing is the cabinet hardware? Besides half the kitchen, of course!
