A Photo Shoot and Hotel Silver

Hôtel Silver at home designed by Meg Braff
This past week I have been up to my elbows in pillows, flowers and amazing accessories while helping out with three different photo shoots with my favorite decorator, Meg Braff.  The photographer on the shoot was the talented Josh Savage Gibson, an absolute professional who shared lots of interesting styling secrets.  For instance did you know that bed stylists actually hold bedding in place with duct tape (not us thou!)?  Or maybe you didn't even know there are people who only style beds? And lets not even talk about the neat trick with flowers and a bowl!  Ha.  Anyway, while exhausting, the shoots were exhilarating and a ton of fun.  

Among the terrific people I met was also one half of the Mother/Daughter team that runs the fabulous silver decorative accessory company -- Hôtel.    The silver was so beautiful that I had to share this wonderful source...

Hôtel silver is a collection of vintage european hotel silver re-silvered in London and sold to decorators and available for purchase at at Bergdorf Goodman on the 7th Floor in their Hotel Silver Boutique.   The pieces, originally made for the grand hotels, restaurants, cafes, railway and shipping lines of Europe, are nickel-based (for heft and durability) and silver-plated.  They look and feel fabulous in your hand -- they are like jewelry for your kitchen!  Meg Braff is not the only fan, other collectors include Martha Stewart and the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten.  Hotel silver has also designed lines for Martha Stewart, Ralph Lauren Home and Williams Sonoma.  Check them out here...
