Hola amigos. I’m in NYC for a couple of days and I’m meeting up with my book editor for breakfast in the morning. We are just gonna catch up and say hello, but before the meeting I was rereading over the new book, and getting excited about it all over again (even though it doesn’t come out until October ;-/).
I also looked over a bunch of the photos that I snapped while we were shooting all of the beautiful homes featured in the book. While my dear amazing Dabito was the principle photographer of the project, I brought along my camera and my (then) new 50mm lens that’s great for taking detail shots. I captured some behind-the-scenes as well of some colorful moments from the whirlwind four weeks shooting The New Bohemians Handbook.
Because this book contains a lot of thought-starters and exercises, we shuffled things around quite a bit in the homes we shot to illustrate different ideas. Here you can see Caitlin (from team Jungalow) dancing with one of Christina’s Spider plants.
Above and below, botanical details from the home of Donna “Zia” Humphrey.
I always get such a kick out of watching Dabito shoot. He always pretzels himself into the craziest positions. Anything to get the shot, right? This is while shooting the home of Lola y Tula.
This wall-hanging was a fun concoction. We needed some art for a big, white wall and didn’t have the right thing so we used the stem of a ginseng flower we had bought for florals, a scarf, a piece of scar fabric and some string and DIY’d this funky wall hanging. It actually looked great in the shots in the home of @jessemeighan and @mikey_france. Below, another outtake from their home. Always and forever love this chair, from Selamat.
How gorgeous is this shade of indigo and all these rustic details from the home of @heatherculp? The below canisters stole my heart.
…and some outtakes from the high-contrast home of @my.life.in.colour.
Ugh how cute is Dab?
More outtakes to come! Hope you’re having a great week so far, y’all!
