Our "Eclectic Farmhouse" on Houzz

A few Saturdays ago, two photographers who I met when they were attending the local Hallmark Institute of Photography revisited the farm to do a photo shoot for the on-line interior decorating magazine Houzz. It was such a pleasure to work with these two young women. Rikki Snyder was doing the photos and Sarah Zimmerman was assisting her (Sarah shoots weddings and portraits mostly).


They moved quickly around the house, working in tandem. I love watching photographers work. 

The best thing is that the photos will be available on the Houzz website to inspire other interior decorators - whether professional or hobbyists. Check it out here. I'll be posting more of the photos this week. I would like to personally recommend Rikki to any of you needing product, food or interior photography. She is young and incredibly serious about her photography. Check out her website and blog here. She will travel and is based about an hour outside of NYC. Thank you Rikki for using your eye to take such lovely photos.

Wow, I feel like I just had a personal tour. Such gorgeous color and pattern. LOVE it. Hope I can see it in person one day.

Inspirational. I have a bathroom to paint (and have done for a few years) and this is the final shove I need to get it done! Thank you!

I love the way that although you have cosy colourful rooms, you have calm white ones, too. A real gift for making comfortable surroundings. I hope your yarn makes it over to the UK, too!

Love your decorating style - so colorful, warm and cozy and so you! How about offering a class on decorating with emphasis on hand painting walls, furniture, etc.

You have no fear of color right down to the sides of the tub. Enjoy your sharing the cozy spots of your home.

Hi Kristen, my friend sent me a link to your blog...so glad she did. Love you home, your use of bold bright color. You have such a beautiful way of mixing old and new, color and pattern. Love, love, love!!

I live in an old home, built in 1848. I too love to decorate with color, but have not been brave enough to paint my pine plank walls a color...seeing these photos makes me want to do just that...

Grace and peace,
Mar
