Before I realized textile design was my future I would buy stacks of interior design magazines rip out the pages and create mood boards of my dream home. I would do the same with fashion magazines. The lifestyle shots were and still are my favourite part. I would imagine myself as one of the models creating stories of my future - where I would live, what I would look like, my wardrobe, my husband, what my kids and I would do on the weekends. Fashion photography tells a story through the clothes and in return brings the clothes to life.

I always felt story telling was missing in Interior Design advertising. My goal with Candice Kaye Design is to change this narrative.

First I wanted to change your perspective when it came to wallpaper. It’s something that has been around forever, but by adding a bespoke element to the walls the walls now had their own personality. They speak their own language and deliver a very specific message. This I have achieved. Now it’s taking this concept a step further. I want to shoot textile with a different perspective. I have mixed my love for high fashion lifestyle with my love with interior design telling a story through the textile. I can’t wait to show you what Charles has captured from this weekend. His style is exactly what I needed to achieve this look. He has a brilliant way of showing movement within his photographs.

In the meantime here is a behind the scenes from the weekend. x C
