TDC Styling + Photography | Highlights from 2016


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! A special time of year spent relaxing with family, these days leading up to the new year are my favourite, but before the year is out I wanted to share a round up of my styling highlights from 2016. I've had the opportunity to work with so many amazing people, brands and products this year but there was one project that I know will always be a defining moment for me. This was the shoot for norsu in Melbourne. Travelling to one of my favourite cities, I had the opportunity to work with an incredible team including norsu founders (and two of the most wonderful humans I know), Kristy Sadlier and Nat Wheeler, along with renowned photographer Lisa Cohen. A truly rewarding and collaborative project, I think the photos speak for themselves. If you missed the full campaign and behind the scenes video of the shoot day, take a look here

Another highlight, my work for BoConcept earlier this year involved a living room transformation and the styling of an amazing dark green velvet sofa and full height shelving unit. See more photos and a list of all the products here

The DIY element of the work I do for BNZ GoodHome is always exciting and this desk has been a favourite so far. Paired with stunning pieces from Cult Design and artworks by Studio Esinam I was thrilled with the way it turned out. Pop over here to find out more.

Another workspace project, this one involved working with Dulux NZ to choose a new paint colour my home office. A fun process and great result, I'm thrilled to have since started my role as Brand Ambassador for Dulux, and I'm looking forward to sharing more painting projects in the new year. Check out the two-part office series here and here

I've really enjoyed working with NZ brand CittĂ  this year. In addition to some at-home styling I had the opportunity to style an area within their beautiful Grey Lynn Store. Find out more in this post

Lastly a very recent project, designing the Nespresso Pop Up CafĂ© was most definitely a highlight of 2016! It's also one I couldn't have done without the help of so many wonderful local suppliers. Pop over here to see who they are, along with the full collection of imagery.
