September 19, 2012 in interior styling
One of the jobs I worked on in the run up to summer was styling for the new catalogue and re-designed website for Cox & Cox, the home interiors mail order company. Some of you may have seen their stylish new catalogue which dropped through letterboxes recently (if not you can request a catalogue here). I styled for three of the four weeks’ intensive shoot with a lot of prep work done in advance. Each shot was planned before hand, making sure that each item was given a little story or twist to help to make it different. I introduced creative aspects like chalk drawings, painted leaves and props, stitched cards and hand-stamped tags to give each shot its own personality. Part of the brief was to bring a new look to the collection, which includes new products for autumn and winter, and working with Cox & Cox and photographer Emma Lee I hope we have.
I thought I would share some of my favourite images and products that I styled and to begin here are some of my personal favourites from the Domestic Diva section.
Fun Cutlery Wall Art (£50.00) for your kitchen (also useful if a giant pops round for tea).
There are lots of great products for kids too.
I will post some more of my favourite images later today, and some of the Christmas images in a couple of months’ time as it’s far too early for the C word!
If you don’t already have one then you can order a catalogue here and there are dozens more images on the new-look Cox & Cox website. They are also running a competition for a chance to win £500 to spend on their products!
Did you receive a copy of the catalogue already? I would love to hear what you thought.
