When I am approached to contribute to editorial shoots it's the team that makes all of the difference. And who could have dreamed up a better one: photographer and frequent collaborator Jose Villa and designers Rosemary Hattenbach and Nicole Sillapere for this shoot at Manka's Inverness Lodge. In keeping with my goal to play around with "calligraphy on anything" this year, I created iron on names for the place settings and this transparent scrim with the most ever so subtle ring of beige poetry. You can make the iron on transfers at home using these and an inkjet printer (a tip: white/light colors like what we did are printed on an industrial printer. Go for darker hues at home).The muted neutrals and bright explosion of magenta is such a killer color combination. You can find many more photos and learn more about the incredible setting over at Pacific Weddings. Thanks to this talented team and the many other contributers for including me.
