We think photographer Paul Massey's peaceful, Victorian home is just about perfect to begin with. But wait until you see the difference that a few simple touches here and there (and some rumpled styling) make for its photo spread in Living Etc magazine.
Its fun to see a house before and after it has been styled for a magazine shoot. Especially when we might not have changed a thing if we just saw the before photos. British photographer Paul Massey rents his amazing home for locations and has photos online here and (on his website) here. We love comparing those serenely minimalist photos to the charmingly disheveled look of a recent tour Living Etc magazine did of his home.
These touches would be easy to do to show off your house for a party, or stage it to sell. We like how the home looks more "lived in", without looking like a furniture catalog (although granted it looks amazing to begin with). Can you tell what the stylist added?
