FORAGING // Today we had a lovely family lunch for my dad and nephew's birthdays. This evolved into a communal pruning session of my parents beautiful row of ornamental pear trees. With my brother up a ladder, dad giving directions and everyone else putting branches on the verge, sweeping up leaves and me putting some in my car! Then I came home to have some styling fun and just managed to get a shot, with the help of Molly, before the light faded. A perfect end to the day! #seekthesimplicity #visualmerchandising #petsasprops  #sundaystyling

REFRESH & RESTYLE // Everyone has a favorite room or spot to take photos in and this room is mine. It is tiny but has lovely light, white walls and is just off my office overlooking the studio. For a change it is not piled high with props and clutter so I took the opportunity to have some fun styling this afternoon and I have to say I really enjoyed myself! A bit of a creative refresh for the week ahead! #designmerchants #visualmerchandising #perthcreatives

PROP HUNTING // One of my favourite parts of the job is sourcing and hunting for props, whether for VM or styling projects. Although I love exploring in warehouses and wholesalers I also love it when I get to buy props at places like @empirehomewares in Claremont! This was from a recent visit and I went back to the studio with some beautiful pieces that our client loved! #visualmerchandising #designmerchants #perthcreatives #dmvmlove
