sunday’s poppy love
Posted in photographers, recent work, stores February 3rd, 2008 by piablog

styling by Pia, photography by Brian Gilkes.

While I seem to be on a rather botanical theme lately, for us poppy lovers here is another fun image with the lovelies in there, surrounded by the new Le Forge range. I had alot of fun shooting this as the request was for something fun to show off the new colours and designs. The photograph is part of a series, this one also being amongst the collection.

And since I am on the subject of poppies, I must send you over to poppytalk who has an incredible series of interviews on ‘collecting’, and showcases some great designers and artists’ personal collections. To go straight to the series, click on one of the pictures on poppytalk’s left side bar under the title ‘collecting’. While you are over there, check out today’s post titled ‘share your love’ where jewelry artist Colleen Baran is asking for submissions of love stories for her upcoming ‘like wearing a love letter series’ jewelry collection…


What a beautiful idea, and Colleen’s work looks gorgeous! I am thinking I have a few love stories of my own to share. I adore all this collaborating and sharing via the blogosphere.

    The top photograph is gorgeous. I never thought I’d consider hanging a chair from my ceiling! I want that red and white stripped bench/chair/loveseat or whatever it is. Why does this company have to be all the way in Australia! That ocean is always standing in the way of my greediness.

    hi leslie, i’m thinking if the sea is always in the way perhaps you could jump it and move there! i can tell you, it’s a pretty cool place to live 🙂
    Mariss, how brave are you to consider making one, but it would be a huge accomplishment – imagine your friends coming into your house and saying ‘wow, look at that chandelier!’ and you can say ‘yep, i made it!’
    thanks lynne and laura, so nice to have you guys come and visit, you are welcome here anytime!

    There’s so much wonderful stuff in your post I don’t know where to start… You know about my own botany obsession, so you can imagine how smitten I am with those poppies. The picture is so colorful, so full or energy, it’s really a winter treat.
    And about sharing the stories – what a terrific idea.
    I can’t come to your blog and NOT be inspired…
