photo stylism


August 7, 2015

Styling by Karine Candice Kong, Founder of online concept store BODIE and FOU,In January this year, I attended a great photography workshop run by my friend Emily Quinton, who incidentally released a great book on independent makers a few months ago. During the workshop, we had to style a shot so I gathered a few things borrowed from my fellow students and came up with the styling above.  READ MORE...

Behind-the-scene photoshoot with a Danish team

September 27, 2012

Yesterday, my home was photographed & styled by a Danish team…I was busy working on our new site in the kitchen so I let them get on with it. After 3 photoshoots in the space of a few weeks including my favourite in MILK Decoration, I wasn’t sure how different their shots could be from what we had seen before but the stylist was very good and they made some great photos.
The photo on the wall next to the BAU pendant light (photo 2) is one of Mila taken by Francois (who has now a new website here). I will show later on the whole series we did around this gorgeous black tutu – it looks fabulous!
The Monkey print is part of our AW 2012 collection and should arrive this week. If you haven’t requested a copy of our new catalogue, make sure you do it here.
Have a great day!

Such a serene photo…

August 8, 2012

I love the peace and serenity this shot exudes and this woman with her white hair looks so graceful…
It looks like a painting///
The day I manage to style something as beautiful as this, I will be very happy.

I have also been dying to get a skull like this since I saw one in the kitchen of this gorgeous home in Amsterdam – which is pretty much my ‘masterplan’ kitchen. I keep asking if Steve’s dad in New-Zealand can find one on his farm but as he has now retired, it is very unlikely that one of the few cows he kept. is going to drop-dead just so that I can have her skull so if you know where I could source some, by all means please let me know.

J’adore le sentiment de calme et de sérénité qui émane de cette photo et cette femme, avec
ses cheveux gris, est tellement belle
On dirait une peinture///
Le jour ou j’arriverais a styler des photos aussi belle que celle-ci, je serais très heureuse.

Cela fait aussi un moment que je me rêve une tête comme celle accrochée au mur – depuis que j’en ai vu sur le mur de cette cuisine a Amsterdam – qui est ce a peu prêt ce que j’imagine pour le look de notre cuisine. Je n’arrête pas de demander si le père de Steve pourrait en trouver une en Nouvelle-Zéalande vu qu’il a une ferme, mais comme il a pris sa retraite, cela va  être dur donc si jamais vous savez ou en trouver, n’hésitez pas a partager l’info.

Life with Mila…at breakfast

April 4, 2012

Yesterday morning, Steve got up at 6am to take Lucas for a walk. When Mila and I joined him an hour later for breakfast, he told us that Linda, our au-pair, came home at 6am. This is unusual as Linda often comes home around midnight after working in a pub nearby but last night, she was out partying. Mila’s reaction made me laugh….

Mila: “Oh WOW, she worked ALL Night!!”
Aren’t kids just great to look at the world with a positive attitude and think the best of everything and everyone… :-)

This is what François and I worked on last weekend.The second picture which shows the beautiful Rob Ryan plates better is likely to be on the back cover of our catalogue
