erin flett

my talented designer/decorator  friend bronwyn suggested i meet another local creative type & textile designer - erin flett . of course i was somewhat familiar with her work and was intrigued and thrilled to be invited to her studio in a restored cotton mill in westbrook, me.
one walks into erin's space and is immediately struck by  joyful COLOR and graphic, beautiful objects everywhere - from her work tables & inspiration boards to her screens to her finished products.
she and her team ( including her husband) create a line of hand drawn , hand printed fabrics which then become pillows, tea towels, stretched canvases, blankets, bags and much more….. 
she has had lots of deserved press, sells on estsy, also in select stores and most recenty began selling her printed canvases thru serena & lily
printed on the door into her studio is the following : Envision Amazingness Every Day - spend just a wee bit of time with erin and you will understand - she means it.

haus. maison. house

lately i have had the good fortune to be invited into some breathtaking spaces; homes, apartments, offices, artists studios….
sometimes i have the foresight to take photos but mostly i am just taking in the details.
wood floors, poured concrete, bamboo, tile, cork ? big windows. ocean views or cityscape?  is it light filled or moody and dark with great lighting. spare and modern or chock-a-block full of antiques. bright & colorful or muted and subtle wall colors
the above photos are from a personal shoot i did with the oh-so talented jarrod mccabe in a fabulous, unexpected modern home nestled into a hilly city street between tall apt buildings. i have no doubt it will someday grace the cover of a shelter magazine ( they want to finish the rooftop garden & terrace before unveiling to the public) . it is designed by an exceptional architect and the homeowners are super talented and worked on most of the interior themselves including the wooden cabinets & closet seen above. it has incredible views of a working harbor and light coming in from its floor to ceiling glass windows. i keep coming back to these images that JM took and decided to do a post on this fun shoot we did together this winter.
