Go behind the scenes with Claire Bradley on the recent Inside Out cover shoot.
"Even after years of working in magazines, I still love the magic of a photo shoot. The lights, the cameras, the packing tape… hang on.
You see, without ruining the picture for you, the best bit about shoots is that there is a certain amount of magic that goes in to turning what are beautiful 3D spaces into 2D images that are still just as gorgeous. So here are some of my behind-the-scenes shots from our April 2015 cover shoot.
Here, we worked with British Paints to transform a lovely suburban home into something with a little more personality. In each of the main rooms, we introduced a little pop of colour that anyone could do in their own home. From a lovely organic leaf shape in the living space to a great detail in the kitchen, it was so exciting to see the colour go on the walls and see the artistic treatments come to life.
What I loved about the living room treatment was the way you can use paint to create a point of focus along a long wall that might otherwise look a bit sparse. In this case, the leaf shape connects the console with the window. It’s bright enough to make a difference but soft enough so that the ‘Reckless Green’ doesn’t jar against the room’s beautiful colour palette. Take a look at the raft of beautiful artworks our stylist Julia Green had on hand to make sure the Lisa Lapointe we chose in the end was just the right one!
