Oh ~ happy day! Capital Design Days got off to a great start yesterday at the DC Design Center.
I finally got to meet the talented and ever so charming Eddie Ross and his partner Jaithan Kochar.
I know, I know. The shoes alone were enough to make me swoon.
Eddie gave a great demonstration on how to style rooms for photography. He stressed the importance of using a good photographer, natural light and ”adding a layer of imperfection” (this includes dogs and kids). His mantra is “When in doubt, style simply”. Props should make sense and suggest a relaxed, welcoming ambience – doors and windows flung open, pillows a bit rumpled (but not too) and lots of loose floral arrangements.
Capital Design Days continues through Thursday, April 14 when most programs will be open to the public.
