On Location at The Forge

2016 saw us create two very special location shoots in Wales at The Welsh House Cottages. This year we wanted to find a property a little closer to London and in a different style - enter The Forge in Hampshire.

The Forge Hampshire

This glorious Georgian/Victorian home in Holyborne featured beautiful lime-washed walls, antiques galore and spring blooms overflowing from the cottage garden. Our host Juliet is an old friend of our stylist Hilary Lowe so the vibes were good! Hilary brought her usual car load of lovely props up from Wales and as always was meticulously planned. It was chilly but the sun was not absent - a wonderful break from our London studio.

We were happy to support The Design Trust Business Club and Dream Plan Do buy creating a special offer for the members, this meant we had products from all over the UK - even the Outer Hebrides in the case of Shoreline Stoneware. 

Here's some highlights from the shoot which included Galapagos Designs, Thornback&Peel, Shoreline Stoneware, Mamws Interiors, Damson&Slate. Wilton St Craft, Little Toy Co and many more!
