Kitchenware Savvy Shopper - behind the scenes

Here is the Savvy Shopper kitchenware page I styled for the M Magazine that appeared in the Sunday Age this morning. Sourcing this was great fun, as I love loads of bright stuff in the kitchen, and the cuter and kitsch-ier the better. I looked at lots of possible locations for this shoot, but it seemed that the boring (but, I admit, highly necessary) bits like sinks, ovens and range-hoods always got it the way. So I created a little kitchen corner in one of the studios we use at Decent Exposure. First I found a little $40 kitchen dresser at Vinnies in Glenferrie Road, Malvern (which now sits happily in my kitchen, see earlier post), gave it a good scrub and a few coats of paint and added some cup hooks. Next I went to Tait Timber and purchased a heap of floorboards they had going cheap in the warehouse. They were dragged upstairs into the studio and given a few coats of paint too. Then came the fun bit - dressing the little kitchen scene.
