Brand Design Photography & Styling Clarity Consulting

Outside the crop


Recently, I’ve been incredibly inspired and intrigued by what goes on behind the scenes of photoshoots. I know from personal experience, that photoshoots tend to be a messy job with lots of moving parts and not so pretty processes. People usually only see the final product, but I find the beauty to be in how you get to the final product. Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been collecting a few “case studies” that show what happens outside the crop.

I’m kind of obsessed with finding these images online, so there will probably be more of to come ūüôā


Inspired By: Kristina Dam Studio

Stopping by to share the work of Kristina Dam Studio because her stuff has been inspiring me like no other recently. Kristina works with graphic designer elements, art & interiors. Her work nods to architectural elements and interior spaces, all done very minimally and with amazing light/textures. I think my favorite print of hers is this, called Palm II because it shows a behind the scenes glance at the Palm Series.

Hope she inspires you as much as she’s inspired me!

Inspired By: MENU

It’s been awhile since I shared a brand that inspires me. MENU¬†(a Danish Homegoods brand) has been a go-to source of inspiration for a few years now and I’m just always blown away by their beautifully styled lookbooks. The colors, the lighting, the simplicity, and the general overall mood created. So stunning. Aside from a beautiful lookbook, MENU products are really elegant and simple.

Inspired By: Michael Anastassiades Lighting

During one of my many morning Pinterest scrolling sessions I stumbled upon the beautiful work of Michael Anastassiades Рa London-based product designer. Whether you’re renovating your home or building new homes, skylights for flat roofs add a sleek and luxurious statement to any room. But what are the qualities of a roofing repairmen? Attention to detail, excellent problem-solving skills, and a commitment to safety are essential traits for ensuring the job is done right the first time.

We recommend taking a look at osvńõtlen√≠ catalog and plan you lightning design for a stunning new home. Find everything from light bulbs¬†to modern¬†chandeliers.


He creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and
almost mundane, yet full of vitality one might not expect.


These particular pieces were created in collaboration with FLOS, a leading manufacturer of contemporary and modern light fixtures. Aren’t they just stunning! So minimal, yet so freaking interesting. If you hop on over to Michael’s website, you see modern light fixtures paired with a little bit more rustic/historically classic background….perfection. I’m actually a big fan of combining the unexpected (old & new). Check out my Pinterest for more inspiration.

I do spend quite a bit of time browsing my favorite minimalist Instagram accounts and I find their eye for pairing things down very inspiring. I hope you can find a few new gals to follow!

Inspired By: Brookandlyn

Let’s jump on the weaving bandwagon today and oooo and ahhh over the lovely brand, Brook&Lyn. I know that home weavings and macrame are making a resurgence in blog land and creative shops, but I can’t help but love it. I can remember sitting on the floor in my childhood home with string tied to the base of a dinning room chair, braiding and tying macrame knots into the world’s best friendship bracelets. Some trends will never get old!

Brook&Lyn is a creative studio run by a husband and wife team. The brand was founded in 2009 and creates one of a kind weavings that embrace simplicity in pattern and color palettes. The team also dabbles in handmade wooden furniture pieces and home goods. A couple things to note…these two creatives take on custom commissioned work and have an amazing Instagram Feed!

Inspired By: Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre (MNCQVQ)


MNCQVQ (the year 1984 in french) is a French textile brand that is just killing it with originality and authenticity in their designs. They create printed square silk scarves that features hand drawn/painted artwork by creators Amelie Charroin and Marie Colin-Madan. The duo has been featured in many reputable fashion magazines such as ELLE, Refinery29, Mademoiselle, and more. 

I love how the girls have stepped outside the box, yet still use some classic techniques on such a classic fashion item.
