In September I had the honor to continue working and photographing a home designed by Jackie Bayer of Amanda Austin Interiors. I love hearing in advance about the client’s home from the designers whether through email or on the phone and catching glimpses of installs on their facebook post. It makes me excited to see and experience all the details, colors, and textures in person. This shoot was no different as it was an all day shoot in which I spent with senior designer Jackie photographing beautiful rooms she designed for her client.
We started in the foyer. This elegant entry with upscale materials set the tone for the home. To start, the grasscloth wallcovering has a hand painted gold damask pattern. The Macassar Ebony credenza sits perfectly in the entry just below the hand blown glass mini chandeliers and a beautiful rich brown mirror hung above it.
The dining room is a warm and inviting space and the home of the client’s many treasures.
The hand knotted antique rug and the silk ikat jewel toned fabric on the dining room chairs adds a timeless and classic feel to this space.
This bathroom was designed to be handsome using warm and rich materials: Emperador Dark marble counter tops;
a custom cherry vanity, and earthtone artisan tiles in the shower.
The ceramic plank floor tile is designed to look like hardwood and radiant heat is beneth to warm the tile.
Now we move into the kitchen. Comfortable, bright, white, and an elegant place to dine.
Sadie, of Amanda Austin Interiors designed the serpentine banquette adorned with their favorite, new Mary MacDonald fabric by Schumacher.
Jenn Air & Fischer Paykel appliances outfit the kitchen with the white cabinetry mixed with an Espresso Island.
The hardware is brushed nickel by specialty hardware company Schaub & Co. The oversized mother of pearl lantern
is perfect in lieu of a traditional kitchen chandelier. The material is a nice offset to the glass table below with the cool Calcutta Gold marble surfaces.
