What do you do with a room that's finally been vacated by an adult child who has moved out? You call in a creative team and turn it into a guest suite! That's what my client Ann did over the past several months.
A knitter, Ann has a soft spot for sheep and lambs. She saw some of my photos and contacted me about her re-decorating project. She wanted to create a cozy refuge for her guests that also had a bit of local color.
With the help of an interior designer, we chose a collection of my images that reminded her of watching The Sheep Shearer at work.
What really pulled the whole room and the photographs together, however, was the custom upholstery she had made for two armchairs. And when I say "custom upholstery" I mean that not only did she have the talented Kathy Gubernat create the slip covers, but she also had the fabric print designed specifically for the room.
Priscilla Harper of Priscilla Harper Designs is also a photographer -- and a print and fabric designer. Using the sheep images we selected for Ann's guest suite, she digitally isolated specific colors and created a plaid for the armchairs. How cool is that?
I have always believed a photograph is never finished until it is printed and shared. Not only is it a pleasure to see my work printed and hanging on Ann's wall, but it is an honor to have shared and participated in this creative collaboration.
