The Greenhouse Interiors artist stable is one of Australia’s most impressive, so when they shared their latest group photoshoot with us recently, we couldn’t wait to share. The shoot started with each artist being asked to produce a colourful new capsule collection of original artworks (inspired by summer and autumn), that were styled up together. “Life is better with colour,” goes the Greenhouse Interiors tagline and this latest shoot proves it really is.
“In true form, the pieces of the puzzle all came together as they always do. It all sat beautifully together, like they had all shared a studio space and co-created in the same room. The synergy and spirit in our team of artists is palpable. We are a unique bunch of like-minded colour lovers and when we get together, magic happens. We hope you love this collection as much as we do!” says Greenhouse Interiors’ Julia Green.
Aside from acting as a fabulous showcase for the Greenhouse Interiors artists, the shoot provides plenty of excellent styling insight too. “We like to give our customers ideas about how best to hang work, how to cluster it, and what kind of companion colours work. We also like to share the happy vibe created by using colour in one’s home!” says Julia.
Shot inside a home on the coastline of Jan Juc (a suburb in Victoria’s Torquay), luckily for the team, the abode was already filled with an array of gorgeous furniture. “It’s a beautiful, textured space so all we had to was move on in and hang the work,” says Julia.
Of the overall fun, colour-loving vibe, Julia wanted the shoot to convey the idea that true style often has nothing to do with how much money a person has. “We believe style is never about money or your bank account. It’s instead about creating warm, inviting spaces with love and colour always. And we think that was definitely achieved.”
Julia’s artwork styling tips
- Size matters
The scale of an artwork is really important for maximum impact. Always make sure you measure up the space with masking tape first, to see how it will really translate onto the wall. Greenhouse Interiors has a clever 3d augmented reality App that makes this task even easier.
Try to pick out some of the colours in the work and repeat them in soft furnishings or textiles, as this will sew the room together like a tapestry and make the space feel very harmonious.
- Come to the dark side
Don’t be afraid of darker wall colours. The bedroom in our house was a clear favorite and it made all of our artworks go BOOM! Darker colours really mood up a space and create fab ambience. Give them a go!
