I am so excited about this month’s Simply Saratoga issue. For this issue, my friends, Ed and Nicole, let me shoot their gorgeous new home just outside of Saratoga. Not only did they design a super cool house but Ed and Nicole also have great eyes for collecting. This house has been years in the making, and so have the furnishings- Ed says he’ll buy something years ahead, just knowing where the piece will end up. My personal faves? The vintage dixie cup holder and gum-ball dispensers in the kids bath (if you’re the parent of a toddler, you can probably guess what the gum-balls in the bathroom are for…). And the kids bedrooms? Like a Land of Nod catalogue come to life- Lawrence and Penelope are some lucky kiddos!
Each room in the house feels lovingly curated, not impulsively bought for. However, it also feels homey and comfortable, just as a young family’s home should. Thanks, Ed and Nicole!
Side note- this is also my first issue shooting the photos myself! It was a lot of work, but I absolutely LOVE having total creative control. Here are a few images that didn’t quite make the cut for magazine (and trust me- I jammed as many as I could in there! There were just too many to choose from).Hope you enjoy!
