Our good friends at IKEA came to us this week with an exciting request - they asked us to let all of you - our lovely readers in NYC - know about a one-of-a-kind opportunity to have your home photographed and published in an upcoming IKEA book. If you live in New York, have a home with great light and interesting space, filled with your own unique personal style, then IKEA would love to hear from you. Read on for details...
The project is described as follows:
IKEA is compiling a book of homes around the world in which people have combined IKEA products with other items, without having used an interior designer.
Here is what Pamela, who is working on the project for IKEA, told us she is looking for:
- The home must be within the five New York City boroughs, with good light, interesting architectural details, unique furnishings, and not need any major improvements. It should reflect the passions of the resident.
- It's great if you have incorporated some IKEA pieces into your decor, especially in a living or dining room, but your own personal design vision is key to the project and what the scout will be looking at.
- The spaces should be able to accommodate a photographer and crew for a shoot that will last one or two days and you will be compensated.
- Besides the home itself, we'll want to photograph everyone who lives there, plus pets if you have any.
If you are interested, please send photos of the exterior, all interior spaces in your home, plus the people and pets that live there, to:
Pamela Diaconis: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline is EOD this Friday, 11/11.
Note: Pamela said that the photos you send do NOT need to be beauty shots - quick snapshots/cameraphone pics are fine. If your home ends up in the running for inclusion in the book, scouting shots will be taken.
