The season of spring
Spring is here… and I hear spring showers are on the way this weekend. It is the very first opportunity this year that my little Brooklyn family and I are venturing out of the city for some rest and relaxation; to Upstate New York. We had better pack some games and a good few books if we are to be stuck inside for hours on end… and some wellies… for country adventures and a bit of splish sploshing.
Loft living has taken its toll over the past few months and urban grime has got me down. Luckily the general disgustingness of being stuck inside through the NYC winter has passed, and what better way to celebrate than throwing together some custom made lights, adding a layer of divine textiles and popping in a dreamcatcher? Done.
In the light of spring being in the air, and to also feed my desire for all things bright and beautiful, here are some pretty shots I put together with Tara Striano showcasing spring colours, textures and an all round summer is on the way feeling.

A space in which to work
What a sweet, short and simple definition. Surely the shortest to date from Appleketchup?
Workspaces fascinate me, the ever more popular trend for collaborative workspaces, offices in lofts, warehouses, coffee shops turned networking hubs. In Brooklyn we are living in a melting pot of creativity, surrounded by writers, artists and designers. We appear to be attending the school of cool when it comes to new ideas.
Recently, I thought it would be fabulous to create an imaginary work space.. Making a pretty picture, with some cool stuff in it.. for fun… what a top day.
A more traditional idea of a florist.. but in a loft. How very Brooklyn. With the added bonus of Urban Chandy’s captivating light fixture and Recycled Brooklyn’s uber cool industrial stool… I put together a space I’d like to spend the day in; in my dreams…..
My actual workspace however, leaves a lot to be desired right now.. after weeks of back to back shooting.. it’s time to pretty up the real space I work in. But first, I need to plan for tomorrow; when one of my dreams does become a reality.. see you soon London town…
