What a joy to work on the latest CB2 Catalog in Chicago with Photographer Jonny Valiant once again late last year. Over a few weeks Marcus and his team shot and styled a portion as illustrated above for the latest Spring Catalog working with some exciting new furniture and design pieces which just keep getting better and better each saeson, Congrats to all at CB2 including our amazing AD Jennifer Moore who is always such a pleasure to work with. 

 Always a bigger then Ben Hur project, we spent almost a whole week just working on designing the sets with the lead set builder Jake, carefully creating authentic sets that resembled South American Social Clubs, Modern Moroccan Villas and West Coast Homes with that Californian vibe all from snowy Chicago, It really is quite amazing the magic that is created.

For the Spring Catalog for Garnet Hill, Marcus ventured up to Exeter, New Hampshire to Garnet Hill's new location to Art Direct. It was great to meet all the new team players and work in their brand new studio. 

Marcus oversaw 2 teams, The work above is from his team with talented Photographer, Kate Sears, The ever amazing Stylist's Props: Carin Scheve and Soft Styling: Scot Scharenbroich.

Working with some wonderful new product including a new range by Judy Ross, Marcus and the team embraced just the tiniest bit of Costa Rica where the fashion team shot the fashion portion which is also featured in the Spring Catalog out now.

It all happens in Chicago!, Marcus worked once again with Photographer Jonny Valiant for CB2 in the Crate & Barrel Studios for the next addition of the Spring, 17 book just out. This is the second Spring addition which features some new spreads.

We continued our take on  Modern Italian and Californian inspired stories. Here we have a couple of new bedrooms, Marcus has spent many years working with beds and there's some major tricks that go into making a bed look great, there's always a fine line between lived in and just plain messy, For CB2 we like to style them more on the simpler side. The first bedroom was made to feel like a Fashionista's hotel room and the second a Gentleman's Quarter so a slightly different approach was taken on both to give a point of difference.

Marcus worked with creating the sets with set builder and designer Justin Rowe and Art Director Jennifer Moore working with may marble surfaces and metallic detailing. Thanks to my wonderful Chicago based Assistants Veronica Sullivan and Amanda Wolfson 

We hope you enjoy these new spreads for CB2 Spring, 17.

In Chicago, Marcus worked once again with the ever talented Jonny Valiant for CB2 in the Crate & Barrel Studios for the Spring, 17 book just out.

It was exciting to work with many new products new to the season and seen for the first time. We shot the book in many themes including Modern Italian and Californian inspired stories. Many bedrooms and living rooms but also a coffee shop in the mix that used a very exciting 3D herringbone wall.

Marcus worked with creating the sets with set builder and designer Justin Rowe and Art Director Jennifer Moore working with may marble surfaces and metallic detailing. All finishes were created by Alexis Gourguechon including the marble surfboard that features on some of the spreads, Alexis is a master at the faux finish and very talented. Thanks to my amazing Assistants Veronica Sullivan and Amanda Wolfson 

We hope you enjoy the spreads for CB2 Spring, 17.

For Spring, 2017, Williams Sonoma Home has embraced a pastel palette and introduced some softer colors to their palette in the way of dusty pinks, aquas and yellows. In the mix are also the classics blues and grays. 

Marcus was asked to join the team in San Francisco to style these pages with Photographer Eric Piasecki that Marcus has worked with many times before, It was great to reunite!

We had a lot of decorative pillow spreads to shoot and it was lot's of fun to come up with props that helped tell the story behind each scheme.

Better Homes & Gardens/ Spring Color Trends/ Whisper Whites

Working on a new image for magazine Better Homes and Gardens with Photographer Kat Teutsch is always a pleasure and here at Studio Marcus Hay, Inc really speaks to our love of color trends and theory. 

Whisper Whites was this months theme and we were excited to use almost non color this time after so many months of using bright color palettes. It's always a favorite and feels so serene and classic. With just a hint of pink or blue for instance we paired many textures including porcelain, ceramics by Elephant Ceramics, limestone, travertine, marble and satin ribbon.

Evoking classical themes, we wanted it to have a Spring feel, hence the use of blooms including peony roses, tulips, carnations and runucculas. We also sourced fossils and crystal to give it a link to the natural world.

Look out for our next color story for the magazine out soon.

Late last year, Marcus of SMH, Inc was asked to join the Garnet Hill team in New Hampshire to be lead Art Director over 2 teams. Marcus has Art Directed for them before but this was the first time as lead. An incredible amount of work goes into the planning of these catalogs and what you see here is just a taste, having shot enough shots to cover 3 or 4 drops over the Spring and Summer seasons. It was a very exciting project .

 

Marcus spent almost an entire creative week In New York at the studio before heading up to New Hampshire, planning the approach the 2 teams would take to over 50 different looks giving each Garnet Hill design it’s own distinct look based on the look or feel of each design. Working closely with the talented merchants and designers of the product, Marcus had a series of meetings where he presented his ideas and worked through the merchandising of the product in each shot. Every little detail is planned out, right down to what style of bed, lamp and rugs will be used in combination for each shot.

 

Working with the talented set builder Casey Maroon from Maroon Design Works we created a number of amazing configurations of sets that would work over the two teams.

 

It literally takes an army to create these catalogs and while Marcus was working directly with a more nuclear team on the week of the shoot, Marcus was also overseeing the other team lead by Art Director Katrine Hansen who did an wonderful job and was such a pleasure to work with.

 

The shots above are the shots Marcus directed, some of these are preview images only featured online at www.garnethill.com currently in their favorite spaces section but we will feature them again in their full crops later down the track as they are emerge in the actual catalog.

 

Look out for these soon. 

 

The images above are shot by one of our favorite Photographer's Seth Smoot, We were excited to work again with magical Stylist's Carin Scheve (Props) and Eduardo Vinueza (Soft Styling)
