The Business of Style

Last week when I posted about the photography of Michael Partenio many of you commented on the fabulous design and styling of the rooms in the photos.  Lo and behold, I got a note from editor/writer/stylist/ extraordinaire Stacy Kunstel alerting me to the fact that she herself has styled most of those shots.  I’ve been following Stacy on Twitter and reading her blog since finding out about her months ago as I am totally enamored and intrigued by her job.  As I work on styling a spread for Boston Magazine Home I am becoming increasingly aware of how much work (and fun) goes into finding all the right components to create an enticing shot.  In my past life when working for another designer I remember being sent out to scout accessories for photo shoots- even though we had completed the design work.  No matter how much the client has let you go to town on a project, when it comes to the photo shoot, additional styling beyond the interior design is always needed to make it spectacular. Whether simply bringing in flowers, throws and a re-hanging some art to borrowing a different rug, coffee table and statement mirror for the wall!  These before and afters from Stacy’s blog illustrate what she does (and the impact it has).
