When Bloggers Create: The Rough Linen Photo Shoot

Thursday, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow bloggers, Terri Long from La Dolfina, Reichel Broussard from Copy Cat Chic and Tricia Rose from Cabin On The Water. as well as Lisa Dell'Osso from Little Church Interiors.
Terri invited us all to her home for a photo shoot last week. She and I have become blogger friends, so it was a thrill to finally meet Terri in person!

When I arrived, Lisa was working on this table setting. Lisa is one of the most talented interior designers I've ever met, so it was inspiring to see her in action. She gathered items from around Terri's home and worked her magic. I arrived just in time with my camera to photograph her vignette.

The purpose of the photo shoot was to feature the linens from Rough Linen, Tricia Rose's company. The napkins in this photo really capture the natural color and texture of her linens.

I love how Lisa artfully arranged the two napkins together with the bone handled knife and silver one juxtaposed with each other.

Terri has such wonderful collections to create with!

Now it was my turn to hunt and gather in Terri's house for a different vignette featuring Tricia's linens. Together, Tricia and I found these rustic elements and created a Provençal table in the autumn sun. I showed Tricia how to use my camera, and she took this shot herself.

Although this photo was taken in Terri's backyard, it has the feel of the South of France, don't you think?

While we were creating our rustic outdoor table, the girls were inside creating another elegant table in Terri's dining room.

This time, Terri and Reichel were at work with their own special tablescape, pulling items from Terri's buffet.

I really like the way the napkins are folded here. So lovely with the flower too.

How gorgeous is this!?
Three different tablescapes, all with the same linens showing how diverse Tricia's Rough Linen products are. They can be at home in an elegant setting as above with porcelain and silver, and also at home outside on a rustic table with herbs and old cutlery.

We had so much fun creating our tables with Terri's wonderful vintage things. She has such an eye for finding just the right accessory. Her blog, La Dolfina is one of my favorites, and I love to follow her adventures as she hunts and gathers for treasures.

It was so much fun meeting fellow bloggers from the Bay Area. I was so impressed with Reichel from Copy Cat Chic. Reichel's blog is amazing! She also has an eye for design, as you can see by her tablescape above. But most of all, she can find you what you are looking for at a much lower price, hence, "copy cat chic!"

And of course it was a pleasure meeting Tricia Rose from Cabin On The Water, and the owner of Rough Linen.
We had fun putting our heads together and finding just the right objects sitting atop Terri's refrigerator for our Provençal table!

Thank you Terri for pulling us all together for some creative fun!

Be sure to check out Terri's blog La Dolfina, if you haven't yet.
Also, Reichel's blog Copy Cat Chic is a fun one to visit.
And please drop by Tricia Rose's blog Cabin On The Water, as well as her website Rough Linen, featuring duvet covers, shams, dust ruffles, napkins and tablecloths all in the perfect washed linen you have been searching for!
We are all hoping that Lisa will someday start a blog. I'm not holding my breath, though!
