over the ocean

11.07.18

proud to be a muse on over the ocean.......

 

"Kendra lives with her husband, photographer SETH SMOOT, and their three children in a beautiful home just across the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, about half an hour north of San Francisco. Kendra has enjoyed a successful career as a freelance stylist for 15 years; she is also an art director and shot the latest Mabo campaign herself. When I met Kendra for the first time, over two years ago, I right away fell in love with her kind, natural personality, as well as her minimalist yet warm and casual sensibility. We became friends, and as I considered who might be my first American muse for Over the Ocean II, I hoped it would be her. I’m very happy to share here with you a glimpse into Kendra's loving family life and home.

Feature on Jenni Kayne

11.07.18

Thank you for the sweet feature Jenni Kayne!

"Her family home is a minimalist’s dream: wide windows welcome natural light, making the monochromatic white and black scheme look bright, clean and inviting. The décor feels organic and natural, a compliment to the lush, verdant yard whose expanse could be mistaken for a national park."

PHOTOGRAPHER: Dawn Heuman

ANTHROPOLOGIE SPRING HOME CATALOG

02.20.16

The new Anthropologie spring catalog just arrived and I'm so happy to see some of my work included. It was a dream to work with Lilian Hough, an incredibly talented art director and friend, and two of my favorite photographers, David Meredith and Mikkel Vang. There are some jobs that leave you feeling inspired and fulfilled and this was definitely one of them. Between the production, Anthro team, and locations in the Hamptons and rural Pennsylvania, not to mention the gorgeous merch, this was a fantastic project. I have a little feature within, talking a bit about decorating and entryways. There's also a beautiful feature on Athena Calderone, a supremely talented interior designer and food-lover. I'm feeling grateful for this opportunity and also for a career that I love.
