MULBERRY - THE WARM AND THE COOL

INTERIOR STYLINGClaire Delmar

METHOD
Eyes can be drawn to colour almost immediately. You may even find that colour has the ability to dictate how we feel. Colours are universal, symbolic and powerful. They are seen by some and felt by others. How beautiful would it be to capture this atmosphere in your own home?

When styling a table, you can distinguish colour through almost anything and even though viewing colour is an extremely subjective process, they can work in every aspect of your styling decisions. Take a look at these images for example. There are different shades of colour in the background, table cloth, the objects on the table and they mould together effortlessly. What I hope this portrays is an intricate simplicity. Two overall colours, one warm and one cool, that blend and intertwine. The lightness of the blue shades and the depth of the shades of red create a harmony that can be present in any home. The pieces on the table collaborate in their space, forming many enjoyable focal points for the eye. They are organised in a creative structure that emphasises their individuality, whilst demonstrating their collaboration. Look for objects that may seem unusual, that have a touch of quirkiness about them. Placing them in the same space can create a unique atmosphere, that can make your table ever so inviting.

A STYLING STORY IN GOURMET TRAVELLER

MAGAZINE ARTICLE, FOOD STYLINGClaire Delmar
Studio Delmar food styling_Gourmet Traveller_Pick up sticks_1

The March 2019 Gourmet Traveller spread “Pick Up Sticks” features fresh and brightly coloured skewer recipes from Lisa Featherby.

With the food prepared by Peta Dent, photography by Ben Dearnley and styling by Studio Delmar the finished article pops with intensity and flavour.

 A background of jet black and charcoaled timber sets the scene with layers of hand formed plates and bowls as the foods prop. Dark plateware blends into the background and creates a striking splash of colour through the turmeric yellows and bright green leaves of the Asian inspired recipes.

Where the food isn’t as vibrant slabs of turquoise stone, natural terracotta or bold glazes, alongside props of coloured linen, add to the overall look and feel the article inspires.
