Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Well, Part II to you, but more like part 50 to me!

Ok. You have to use your imagination on the flowers and the veggies are still tied with tie wraps.

I've elimanated any colored pot from the stove. My blue Le Crueset was not that big and I felt it was lost. So, I've just put 2 stainless pots on there.

The tureen is gone, although I did try it without the lid, but I"m sure you guys still say ditch it, which is fine. I have it sitting on the kitchen table for now. ON the table is also a white vase that I think maybe the white hydrangeas will go into. They might also go in my big clear vase or even my silver champagne bucket. Not sure, but will decide tomorrow. It does look very bare, but the flowers will help. Perhaps I could put some glasses on the table along with the pitcher of water with lemons. Maybe?

I do have a gorgeous cocounut cake that I will put on a cake plate and a bunch of the chocolate dipped macaroons. I could put those on the counter where the plates are, if you think I should move the plates and glasses to the table.

the bread is all wrapped but will look a bit nicer without all the plastic wrap you see. Maybe will even put one on the cutting board in front of it, unless that would make it too busy.

The bar area is now just that, a bar area. I figure for a dinner party, that is how we would do it. In the glass bowl will be white roses.

And I'm using the gray napkins with wine glasses that have black and silver bands on them. Do you notice I only put one napkin in the ring (a bee ring ;-) btw) so it looks like I was in the process of doing that. Does that look ok? Or should I do all of them, or none of them?

I ditched the hat on the bench, but left the purse and the gloves. They could end up on the stool at the island. Might look nicer there.

The herbs in the pots are a bit frazzled looking. They will be spiffed up and neat for tomorrow.

Here are the pics:

RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Yes! This is what makes me fall in love with your kitchen! I can imagine it filled with ppl and activity. Drinks are being poured, the beautiful rangetop is supporting the creation of a wonderful meal and the guests are lounging at the island taking part in wonderful conversation. It truly puts a smile on my face.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Looking good!

Personally, I think there is just a little too much stuff there. I think it would look better (i.e., less busy) with one or two things removed.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

The kitchen looks great, bee! It looks organic and less "staged" than the photos in your previous thread. You might consider switching out the pussywillow with some better flowers -- they look a little too tall and compete with your chandy. I could see some blue or white hydranga, an orchid or even tulips.

And if we're nitpicking, I might remove the blue napkin from the island and maybe add some carrots with the tops to the veggie vignette (I think the color orange looks great in your kitchen).

Also, you might consider replacing the pieces on the dining room table with one simple floral arrangement with some color.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Hi Bee,

Wow, your new kitchen is stunning!!! Love, love, love.

I missed part 1 and have no idea what the story is here, but fwiw, here are the "hits" I get immediately:

No pussywillows. They're similar in texture to the chandy and too tall. The beautiful veggies are enough on their own.

The herb pots look sort of strange in that dark corner-I think they would be lovely on the sunny dining table, where they could conceivably grow.

The big soup pot looks sort of squashed against the rear of the stovetop. Pull it forward? Don't use it?

I love the bar area, veggies, oils, salt, etc. Gloves and bag are a fun pop of yellow. Also really like the blue bottle and glass of mineral water....

Again, your kitchen is beautiful!


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Bee, it looks amazing. If you really want us to be picky, then
- I agree with pipdog that having just one thing on the table might be better. Flowers would be perfect and draw the eye up to your fixture
-throw the gloves on top of the bag under the handles.
-how does it look if you remove the spoons and cooking things to the right of the stove?
- love love love the bread.
-consider taking the towel out from under the cutting board on the bar area
- cant wait to see the pics
- where is the Saran Wrap :)?


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

They were OUT of carrots with the tops today. Will go back first thing in the am!

I'll play around in a little bit with this stuff. But at least it is too busy, and we can edit!

The things on the island are actually sticks with white berries. Thought they were wintery.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

No pussywillows as they compete with your beautiful chandy.

Personally, I would like more of the dark blue (skyy bottle) color. But thats just me.

Overall it looks really nice!


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Fewer, tighter compositions.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

No matter how you stage it, it's just beautiful!

In this round, I love how the fresh food is your color. Can't wait to see what actually transpires.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

I like this much better! It shows off your beautiful kitchen instead of letting one color AW it's way into a shoot :).

I have to agree with pipdog and marcolo: edit and tighten. Remember what Coco Chanel said, "Before you leave your house, remove the last thing you put on, as it is generally unnecessary." Same rule can be used toward the staging here.

I might even ditch the table runner all together and maybe even the pocketbook and gloves (is someone leaving? a hired chef come in and not put away her things?-FWIW, this is ADHD/OCD-Me giving my picky .02 worth).

Your kitchen is to-die-for. You have a great knack for picking and placing elements of a kitchen in such a way that they become a beautiful and coherent whole.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Nice additions and editing of Part 1. Hope your fingers are getting some chance to heal from the backsplash.

I like your idea of moving the glasses, napkins, napkin rings, and plates over to the table. Maybe plan on two sets of table shots, one with items stacked in place (as you have now, but moved to the table), and a second set with the table actually set at the places.

In real life, I bet that bench looks just great, but the photos aren't doing it any justice because the diagonals underneath draw the eye right under the bench. You might also try test shots with and without the bench.

The bar looks great. I do have one suggestion that you eliminate the container of "bar tools" which makes the scene extra busy, and will not scale down well if they want to use a smaller shot of the bar.

On the subject of diagonals, which define the backsplash so well, you might consider eliminating the competing diagonal in the smaller stainless pot on the stove, and the wooden spoons which read as fairly strong diagonals.

Best of luck with the shoot tomorrow!


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Love everything! but the pussy willow are distracting me. Maybe an arrangement something like in Suzanne Kasler's dining room.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Love the close up with the pepper in the wooden bowl. That's your best shot

Kill the pussywillows, and the cookbook (too hackneyed for such an original kitchen!).

Bar scene is great.

I love the veggies on the board, but you don't need the thing of veggies behind it or the pussy willows.

I like the table with the purse and the silver; i would get rid of the two white items and make it asymmetric on the table surface.

I don't think the bread looks right in the silver; bread goes better with wood.

Have fun! I am sure the photographer and stylist will appreciate all the goodies you have for them, and they will probably bring some of their own props, they almost always do.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Skyy vodka bottle... looks great with the blue gin bottle...yippee! I like the one rolled napkin with the bee ring (very charming) and the rest where they are with the silverware on them. Could we try sliding the tray with the liquor bottle further into the corner kinda diagonally?

The stainless pots look nice, for sure the big one IMO. I agree with removing the tall berry things... it caught my eye first and takes away from the curvy chandelier.

I like the lemons somewhere but they seem to be floating in mid-air as the white bowl sort of disappears into the tile. Maybe a few by the bar area on the counter and then some by the veggies on the island?

What a fun opportunity for you (us haha)!


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Oh fun, I wanna play!

LOVE the silver tray and your new wine glasses. Also love just one napkin ring on. That area looks great!

Yes to losing the berry/pushy willow arrangement. It takes the focus away from your beautiful Chandy and island. I don't think you need any flowers there. How about adding a clear pitcher of water with sliced lemons in it?

How about setting the dining room table. You could still leave the stack on the counter. As is, this room just looks a little stark. You might want to try removing the bench and purse for the photo. And I would go long and low with your flower arrangement to mimic your Chandy. If you don't use the long silver bowl for the bread that might work.

Poor dear, all these ideas must be driving you batty!

Your kitchen is fabulous Bee! Good luck with the photo shoot!


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Sigh, such a beautiful space. I too think there are too many small scattered things and it probably depends on the what angle the picture is taken from. Don't care for the first shot across the island. Nothing in the foreground on the island. The flowers are too tall and narrow they blend in with the chandelier, the veggie display looks too long and diagional and smears into the herb pots on the counter next to the stove and it shows too many little clusters of items. The bread off on that side counter looks unrealistic, just taking up space.

Like the close up of the olive oil etc on the white tray and the tight shot of that along with the 3 herb pots. Don't care for the cookbook on a stand; it's been done a bazillion times. I do like your drink set ups, but are their too many; I think there is a bottle on ever counter? Also too many utensils on or near dish cloths or napkins; also on ever counter?
Don't care for the gloves and purse. Dainty, small and staged and out of place. How about a big centerpiece of flowers for some color and warmth? I look forward to spring flowers when it's winter.

I think you have a lot of nice items to choose from, but they need to be arranged differently depending on the shot.

Good luck. Can't wait to see the finished photos!


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

This is one of my favorite threads. So, some of my thoughts: I agree with moving the herbs elsewhere. Maybe a row of cookbooks here to balance ones on the other side?
Remove the blue bottle and glass that are near the veggies.
I also don't care for the floral arrangement.
Are you not supposed to have things that would be in your kitchen like a coffee maker? I can see a Keurig in the corner.
I think when you put the flowers on the table that might be enough.
The purse and gloves are cute, but it reminds me of those Gary and Elaine catalogue characters.
I like all the other groupings. My fav is the pepper and oil near the stove.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Shots 6, 7, 11 -- work. Close-ups look terrific. Other shots ... Too much going on. Leave the kitchen to be the star. A dozen baguettes in a basket. Huge arrangement of hydrangeas. Kill the other props. Love the b'fast table area but keep it simple (flowers and nothing else). You've got the stage girl, work it! Best of luck, oldbat2be.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Bee-follow up. What I find exceptional about your kitchen is the grey coloring which I think is getting lost in these shots. I went back to your first 'my super white is in' shots and just smiled again. It's a terrific backdrop but I'm worried about it being upstaged. Great fun to be involved at the start, know we'll all learn a lot from the final shots.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

I agree that each arrangement is lovely in it's self but it is time to edit. It detracts from the beauty of the kitchen. I would also take away the herbs and the cookbook.
I think the pocketbook and gloves are too contrived and left over from the yellow theme. The kitchen looks like you are preparing for a soup, salad, lovely bread, wine Sunday lunch, for good friends in the breakfast room, so why not set the table for it, casual dishes glasses etc and make up a narrative that ties it all together. I'm sure it will all come out lovely.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

First, BKW, you have such a beatiful kitchen, and home. Wondeful setting for a photo session.
The props are all lovely, but I think just too many. My eye 'bounces' around too much trying to decide what to focus on, and that detracts from the beauty of the room itself.
i.e. On the island, I suggets removing everything other than the arrangement of veggies, cuttingboard and knife.
The bar setups, too many small things crowded too closely together. Just the cutting board with a lemon and knife, the tray with the gin and vodka bottles on it, and two martini glasses with the shaker off to the side.
Less 'arrangements', containing fewer objects.

As always, this is just my opinion ;-)


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Ok, a little editing. .....

The white berries have been removed. I didn't do much else with the island. I'll fine tune it in the am.

Here's the bar. I turned it on an angle. Like it or Not?

Also, swapped the lemons for limes, but added a pitcher of OJ for color. Plus, that would be a mixer for a bar setup. Thoughts?

Photobucket

Or if you prefer to keep lemons, would this container be better?

Photobucket

Here's the table without the tureen and with the dishes,etc. Please, the flowers are just sitting in water trying to open. I'll arrange them in the white container on the table (or another one). I hate moving that tray out of the kitchen, but it might be best.

Photobucket

Use your imaginations, the cake will be on the silver cake stand, and the macaroons will be pyramid stacked on the small pedestal. Maybe some dessert plates & forks stacked near these?

Photobucket

Moved the cookbooks to the other side, Closed the one. Put the herbs on the left side but eliminated one. And I moved the stock pot forward, and turned the handle on the saute pan so it wasn't sideways--it's more kid-friendly this way....lol.

RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

I love the cake!! I was thinking of a tray of pastries and a nice big pot of coffee - my idea of winter hunkering...

But aside from what I want in a winter kitchen scene, just love watching what you are doing and the creative artists among us at work.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

You're getting there Bee..
It's still a little busy for me. There's a lot to take in. The kitchen is so beautiful--let us see those counters.
For me...no runner on the table and only forks on top of the napkins.
Only the veggies on the board..no bowl of veggies. And maybe scootch it closer to the sink. I would eliminate the blue bottle and glass.
By the bar, only the tray as is and the lime on the cutting board. No juice and bowl of limes.
Not so sure about the bread bowl either...
Good grief I sound picky...this comes from the person who can hardly stand to have a coffee maker and fruit bowl on the counters.
BTW--that cake looks yummy and the stand is beautiful.
Hope the photo shoot is fun tomorrow. Can't wait to hear.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

It's TOMORROW? Good luck and have fun!

Like the limes, btw..


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

I will agree that my personal taste is naked counters. But apparently naked counters are boring.

I will edit the veggies on the island. Perhaps instead of the blue bottle and glass as a beverage for the cook, she'll have a glass of wine while slicing and dicing.

You never know, I wonder if the photographer will want that bread boat on the table....I mean it is sort of funny that nobody has mentioned I have about 8 loaves of different bread for 4 diners...lol. I don't have a big wooden bowl to put the bread in, but I could do another large wooden cutting board and stack some loaves on it.

If I take the runner off the table, won't it look too dark? Hmmm, maybe not. It would look less busy. But on the other hand we have some saying it is too bare...

I better go to bed. I need to get up in the am and start again, hopefully lots more ideas will pour in while I'm sleeping, oh I mean listening to Mr Bee snore....

Thanks!

Bee

RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

I like the first bar scene better, but without the vase of lemons. Not opposed to them going in a bowl. I would cut the lemon on the wooden tray for the shoot.

Don't care of the clear glass pitcher of orange juice, as it looks like a vase of some sort at first glance.

The vase of sticks/pussywillow? on the island fights the chandelier. Although it looks good in shot without the chandelier.

Don't mind the large pot on stove, but dislike the pan. Handle is visually disturbing.

Pepper tray is good.

There is too much stuff on the DR table, second time around. The first picture is better, but I would remove everything but a container of hydrangeas - more low and wide, than tall and stemmed. No runner. Less is more sometimes.

The cookbook on stand is so cliche.

The bread looks better by the oven, imo, but seems like a LOT of bread! Are you going to have a partial loaf or piece on cutting board, maybe with a small container of whipped butter?

I liked the herbs in the pots but would form a triangle (two large in back, small in front) and angle from the corner. It softens all the hard tile, wood cabinets and counter. The cookbooks don't do anything for me, especially angled - very harsh/hard.

The cake is very pretty, but there seems to be a lot of stemmed items.

Is this the tile company or cabinetmaker photographer taking pictures, as magazines usually send a professional to style. Close-ups are easier to style, as less of the room is seen. It's the larger pictures that are harder for most since rooms look different in person than in print/photographs.


 o
RE: Styling the Kitchen, Part II

Removing the chrome yellow is a vast improvement.

Do you have any 'fire element' (a Feng Shui thing) colors with which to accent? Anything from pink to red to orange? Small unobtrusive blips, here and there, might be nice.

BTW, I like the dining room. Now that the hat and satchen handbag are muted, I "saw" your windows, table, and chairs. Lovely!

It looks very nice now. I read your post yesterday and saw the pictures and read some of the replies. I could almost feel you being frazzled by trying to get ready and have it look picture perfect. It looks so much more put together in a beautiful, less is more, serene way. Hoping it goes well for you. You worked so hard and it looks great. I really do believe less is more and someone else said have fewer things and make them larger scaled and that worked for you. Good job done!

It's Over!

That's 4 hours of fun all done!

Ok, he loved OUR styling. L-O-V-E-D

He used to be the editor of the magazine before he left 2 months ago to do professional photography full time. He asked if I would be interested to have the entire house featured in an issue next September. He took lots of photos of other rooms. That might be fabulous motivation around here to get busy!! Or busier!

The first thing he saw when he walked in was the light hitting the breakfast room. He was floored. The sun had just come out and it was coming in through the sliders to the left of the table. He took about a million photos of that area. He said he was going to push for a cover. What? A cover? of the breakfast room? Man, that turned out better than we thought.

Finally got to the kitchen. Moved a few things, he wanted the cutting board to be closer to the end of the island (near the stools) And we put the colander behind the sink. We also switched the Kohler walnut cutting board for the one I had there because it looked so much better.

He took a lot of closeups of all the vignettes. I cannot wait to see the pictures!

Oh, and he also said he does have some photo shoots that would be great to have a stylist help him with! OMG. This could be fun. He said he will push to make sure I get credit in the magazine as the stylist. Of course I share that with all of you! You really helped me so much. I think once I got the yellow out of my mind and made the kitchen "mine", it worked.

Alright, I need to go take off my boots. I wanted to look taller. I don't know why. My feet really don't remember how to wear heels for long periods of time. And I need to figure out what to make with all those vegetables for dinner.

Thanks Again. You all are the best.

Bee

ppbenn--that bread bowl is from Home Goods. It's going back on Saturday. Turns out I'm not the only one who "borrows" from Home Goods for photo shoots according to the photographer.

I had to give the writer the resource list for the stuff in the kitchen by today. I finally managed to buy a domain name for my little imaginary design consultation/stylist business. I was given a lot of tips from beagles. Of course since it was going into print I wanted it to be just a simple (myname dot com) for now. I believe I can do the technical address that beagles suggested which involved the keywords in the address and then link the two together. The writer said she would include it in the article. Cross all those GW fingers.

The magazine is regional (about 5 or 6 counties) in Central PA get the magazine. The magazine is called Susquehana Style.

yikes, mine don't either. sometimes my eyeballs want me to, my memory also. Then the part of my brain that remembers the pain takes over and there is NO WAY! Birks are my life now.
