As much as I adore my home decorating magazines and books, I do not for a minute believe that most people live in homes that are perfectly styled the way they appear in these books and magazines. Real life is just not so .. staged. Real life, as we all know, is messy. Quite messy, if you have kids.
Today, I came across some images, which I found completely captivating because they provide a glimpse at what a real home looks like. It's a home belonging to an artist who's done styling for companies such as Milk magazine in France.
The studio belongs to Emma Cassi, who creates beautiful jewelry out of vintage materials. The photo was part of a behind-the-scenes peek provided by Anthropologie, which is currently selling some of the designer's jewelry. The photo may very well have been styled since the designer also does styling work, but I do think it captures the messiness of a project in the works. For me, the lovely part was that it seems to create a story.
Photos like these make me wonder about the person who works there and what she's like. If I get really carried away, I even imagine the details down to what she has for lunch.
What do you think a photo of a corner of your home would say about you? Would a photo of your desk or work area reveal the true you?
