The Bramwell Brown Blog

Meet the blogger and their Weather Clock

This week we are talking to photographer, stylist and influencer Holly Booth

Can you tell us a bit about your business please?

I run a photography and styling business, which I set up in 2010. I offer a range of services for independent makers, designers, crafters, and shops and I work with clients worldwide. Everything from look books, and product shots, to photographing workshops and studio spaces. Promoting and supporting independent businesses is really important to me, so combining my photography work with my love of design and craft came very naturally.

What's your favourite room in the house and why?

That’s a tricky one but I think I’d have to say the living room. We recently redecorated it, so it’s now a lovely pink shade and we brought in more textures to make it even cosier. The room also gets a lot of light so it feels bright and airy during the day, but it’s also a great space to relax in during the evenings.

Where do you hang your Bramwell Brown Weather Clock and why?

It’s hung in our dining room. It’s quite a statement piece, and the colours tied in well with the artwork and decorative pieces we already had in that room. We spend a lot of time in there eating, socialising, and sometimes I’ll work from the dining room table so as it’s a space we are in a lot, it made sense for us to hang the beautiful weather clock in there.

 

 

Can you sum your Bramwell Brown Weather Clock up in three words?

A talking point. Seriously, everyone that’s come round since we put ours up has asked for a demo! It’s definitely a conversation starter. 

Any tips for incorporating clocks into your interior design?

I think you can either make them stand alone, statement pieces and place them on their own to really make an impact, or they can be incorporated into a gallery wall which can look really interesting! We opted to hang ours on its own in our dining room, and against the dark grey the colours of the weather illustrations really pop.

What are the big interior trends that we should be looking out for in 2019

Apparantly grey is out? Which it definitely isn’t in our house just yet, although saying that we have been a little braver recently opting for pink in the living room! Neutral tones are on the up, and I’ve been seeing a lot of green shades which I’m really enjoying.

Finally, we love mechanical/analogue objects; what mechanical/analogue do you have in your or remember from your childhood that you love(d)?

This is definitely a big feature in our house too – from my collection of vintage cameras, to our joint (ever growing) collection of vinyl! Not only that but we have decorative items and pieces of furniture that we’ve inherited from family members which are so important to us – such as a 60s/70s orange rocket tripod lamp which belonged to my Grandad, I’ve loved it since I was little so it feels very special to now have it in our home.

Thank you to Holly for speaking with us.
