Test Shoot

So here are the pictures taken from my test shoot with the lovely Jonathan Gooch I tried to work to a theme of Pastel & Ice cream colours. As I cant loan beautiful products, I had to make do with my things from home. I would love to know what you all think!

  1. Who needs to loan products when you have all those beautiful things around your home, love the pastel chairs! Excellent images.

    All things nice...

  2. Hi Charlotte.
    I'm new to your blog but I'm so glad I've found it.
    What lovely styling! I love the pastels and the subtle pink ombre effect on all the textiles.

  3. Thankyou both of you for your lovely words! The curtains are the result of a bit of home d.i.y dip-dying. So easy! And the chairs, £4 from a charity shop with a coat of paint. So easy! Thanks again!

  9. Just beautiful. I really love the dipped curtains and table cloth, and the chairs. Even better when I read how you did them yourself, and how affordable - shows that great style doesn't always have to be expensive. x

  29. @ Bootique Thankyou! I got them from my local charity shop. It was pure luck I'm afraid. Just look round charity shops & car boot sales and I'm sure you will find something similar.

  34. I discovered this via Jonathan Lo on pinterest, and I think I'm going to use this as a bit of inspiration for my new kitchen makeover! I'm having such a hard time coming up with a look, and I have this pastel tile that I just CAN'T ignore any longer. I'd LOVE to hear what you thought if you want to take a gander at my blog. (www.jesykaditri.com) I'm working on a few inspiration/mood boards right now!
