On Friday evenings when we don’t have guests coming for dinner, I like to grab a design book from one of the stacks at the shop before we head home. I find perusing the book while having my martini before dinner such a relaxing start to the eve.
At first I was not happy with how my photos were turning out while I was snapping away. It was the end of a busy Friday at the shop, and I could not get as sharp a photo as I was wanting. When I got home and really started looking through the book, I was delighted by the dreamy photography of Amy Archer. Her style has an ethereal quality to it–and is not always in focus. Turns out my shots of the book would be an homage to her style, without really knowing it at the time.
As she so perfectly states in her introduction, “What is it that gives a home real magic? A home that, from the moment you walk through the door, creates an impression of not just beauty, but of emotion as well; a home with a soul.”
