Sneak Peek: Living Room Test Photos

Photo:  Lisa Kauffman Tharp
Above, is the first of many test photographs I took for shoot week.   Far superior professional pictures from Eric Roth to soon follow.

The living room design epitomizes my aesthetic vision for the entire home... natural and organic elements, artistic connections with nature, reclaimed materials in the woods of the tables, and spare sculptural lines that are softened by natural fabrics of linen, cotton and silk.

  1. Beautiful! I love your work and am enjoying seeing your progress. I hope to build a home in the next five years or so and am happy to get your tips and advice that you have offered on this blog for building a healthy home. I know this has to be such an exciting time for you, seeing your dream become a reality! :)

  2. What is the source for the low coffee table in the grey weathered wood? Perfect for our current home!

  3. Hello to The Holloways.

    The low table is a two-tier reclaimed teak piece, purchased at Coastal, located on Nantucket. I would imagine that they could order one for you.

    Best of luck.
