It was my first offical interior shoot back since having our son. As I arrived in Maryland and began to set up my equipment, I openly confessed to designer Elizabeth Reich that I felt like it was the first day of school for me. Would I remember my settings, would I be able to capture each detail that I pre-visualized in my mind, would my nerves subside? Once the camera was set up and I took a look through the viewfinder, my nerves subsided. Elizabeth had supported me through this new transition and has graciously waited for me to photograph her design work. I was thankful to be back behind the camera photographing her beautiful design work in this Maryland Residence. The spaces below are rooms filled with color, layers, textures that all have beauty and purpose designed by Elizabeth. It was a great way to start back and thankfully I did remember everything. Enjoy the Study, Guest Room, and Master Bedroom!!!
The Study: Originally the walls were painted white with white built-ins.
This space had to be a place were her client could both work and relax.
The indigo grasscloth on the walls and the rich color now on the built ins
creates a cozy and masculine touch to the study.The English flag was Elizabeth’s client and wanted it visible as he could see
it every day as a reminder of his home.The London map over the sofa actually shows the street where the client grew up.This deep Chesterfield sofa is a comfortable place for him to read and relax.
The Guest Room: This rooms was the smallest of the three.
Elizabeth made the most of it by adding a queen size bed.The lavender walls and green accents came from the selection of
drapery panels which are a Morris& Co. fabric.The clients previously own the bedside tables.
The Master Bedroom: It was to be a place that gives the feel of a serene retreat.
The calming colors of pale blues, greys, cream and golds do exactly that.
The walls are covered in a Phillip Jefferies metallic grasscloth in a steel grey color.The corner reading chair creates a cozy place to read by the fireplace.Elizabeth and her clients changed the fireplace by adding mouldings
that were not there and creating a spot for the television.A significant feature to the bedroom is the drapery.
The decision to take them behind and across the bed created the
dramatic backdrop for their upholstered headboard.Both bedside pieces are different and yet feel good together.Elizabeth has her clients select the artwork.
It becomes more personal and allows for a space to become alive.
