Summer photo shoot

Posted on October 21, 2014 by Nicole Phillips

Autumn is most certainly here with plenty of leaves underfoot and the light fading all too quickly, but not before I reminisce with you about one stunning day this summer that we spent on the beach getting lifestyle shots ready for next year.

With the help of a couple of good friends, gorgeous afternoon light and a healthy collection of my cushions and deck chairs, we spent a wonderful few hours on West Wittering beach putting together some imagery for Summer 2015. The talented Jenny was behind the camera while Nicola and I did the styling and set up. My fantastic machinist Trisha had put together a marvelous one-off large sun umbrella using a mixture of my fabrics which looked really effective. We even used my Fish on a Line oil cloth to make a brilliant wind brake.

We had lots of fun staging the picnic shots, although the wine did tend to keep wandering off camera! See if you can spy a friendly Labrador swimming in the background and me standing precariously on the brake water while hammering in the umbrella.

I hope you enjoy this sneak preview of what’s to come next summer.

Love Nicole x

Spring Madness

Posted on April 22, 2014 by Nicole Phillips

We had a lovely photo shoot in the woods last week. There was lots of cake, cushions and bluebells. All my children were rustled up to be models and my gorgeous friend's daughter Amber was star of the show in her special strawberry dress. My boys modelled one-off linen and cotton Fish on the Line shorts that were so divine I wish we were making children's clothes. Who knows what the future holds... In the meantime I wanted to show you how gorgeous all my botanical cushions looked surrounded by bluebells. 

Don't forget you can buy all of these fabrics by the metre for your own projects.
