“Photographs should be more than mere evidence of an event. I strive to snap the sly smiles and sidelong glances that make the moment beautiful, so that when you look at it later, you remember more than the event – you remember who you were at the moment and how it felt to be there.” – Katheryn Moran
Katheryn Moran is a Bellingham/Seattle photographer extraordinaire and her photography is just like her; bright, fun, and full of color. You can find her snapping away at weddings, with babies and families, and styling for the most gorgeous food/product shots. She works with all kinds of brands, many wonderful clients, and was awarded Gold for best of the Northwest Photographer. She shot all of our lounges for the 2017 Style Icon Lounges as well as this years crew.
What can we say about our favorite photographer? We have been so lucky to get to know Katy, she was the photographer on our very first photo shoot and we still talk about how lucky we were to have her guide us through our first experience working on a collaboration in the wedding industry! What an education. Katy is energetic, direct, no bullshit, but above all else, fun and kind. What a combo.
Katy has been to the warehouse many times and worked with our collection a bunch. She knew exactlywhat she wanted to build her lounge around, the Baldwin blue settee. She incorporated a bunch of color, some of our brightest pieces, and tied all that color together with a batch of balloons. We asked her a few questions about the lounge she designed and this is what he had to say:
What style would you call your lounge? Colorful Vintage with a Modern Twist?!?!? Oh god, I suck at naming stuff. I don’t know! Crazy Colorful Eclectic!?!?!!!
What was your inspiration? I really love all things colorful. I was so happy with the playful touch of the balloons and the crazy tower of food because they just really seem to speak to my personality and interests, especially lately. It’s easy for me to get caught up and I always try to find playfulness and fun colors and textures to remind me to keep it real and enjoy the ride. <3
Describe your personal style? Funky, eclectic, bright, cheerful, slightly vintage with a modern wist…maybe a little MUCH? Ha!
How would you use this lounge? I could totally see this at a fun cocktail party or wine night or maybe even a murder mystery party!!?!! I think he dark, rich colors of the seats are fun but also kind of moody, plus the pops of fun!
What is your favorite piece? Well, that blue couch is obviously a show stopper. But honestly, I think I love that LAMP! I am a sucker for suspended items.
How does this style represent your business? Definitely colorful, unique and fun!
