Modern Luxury by Holly Bender Interiors

hargis_150223_5012

Back in February I shot this killer contemporary house (architect: Swatt Meiers) for my long-term client Holly Bender. I’ve never done a shoot with Holly that didn’t yield something I really, really liked, and over the course of 2 days we kept that streak going!

Holly worked with the homeowner, who is an art consultant, to combine a color palette and overall aesthetic that worked with the family’s extensive (and awesome) art collection. We worked hard to create a set of photos that really capture that, and also expressed the feeling of this place. We were pleased when Houzz.com featured the project in August, and it got pretty rave reviews!

Here are a few more from this shoot:

And a few Behind-The-Scenes (not many, we were pretty busy on this one!)

That’s Holly getting some twilight silhouettes of Ken Brown and I, perched on the edge of the pool.

This Week In Photos: August 5, 2011

All but one in this group are from a big Oakland contemporary that I spent a lot of time in this week. This place was a lot of fun to shoot….great compositions everywhere. Up to you to figure out which one is from the other house.

Happy Friday — I’m off for a weekend in Carmel! See the rest of the photos after the jump!
