Bespoke Kitchen Photography

Capture is our Photography team, B2B specialists in the Kitchen, Bathroom and Bedroom industries and still going strong after 25 years. Our commercial space is specifically geared up for large room set builds which are perfect for bespoke kitchens, trend-based Pinterest content and promotional video.

A recent project saw Symphony and Laura Ashley Kitchens commission a set of images for their upcoming product release. Historically a CGI client, they wanted to use traditional photography to re-capture the realism that is sometimes lost in CGI. Although CGI is fantastic for architectural visualisations, traditional photography effortlessly captures mood, organic feeling and the tactile homely touch for which the iconic brand is famous.

The Capture team were instrumental in the photographic approach to the project. Our team explicitly directed these images to have beautiful natural lighting - eliminating the logistical hassle and cost of a location shoot.

Nina, Our Head of Creative, worked meticulously with Laura Ashley to deliver creative concepts and art direction that fit within Laura Ashley’s brand guidelines. All our creative team work exclusively in-house, meaning each client benefits from the personal touch be it from our enthusiastic set builders, talented stylists or professional photographers.

Trend Alert-Mixed Materials in the Kitchen

We've been championing the Mixed Materials Trend during 2016 in a lot of our Kitchen images and we believe this trend will only grow in strength during 2017. By bringing natural materials into our home we add a connection to a lifestyle that celebrates and embraces nature and its unique imperfections. Below are some of our favourite examples.

Surface design that mimics naturemiddle

The Stone Blue facia utilises the latest technology in surface design. The textured surface of the wood grain effect makes it a great solid wood replica with all the benefits of a laminate. This has been layered with tonal marble and cool greys for an elegant and refined look.

By using the textured Walnut facia in the industrial style kitchen, warmth has been added to the palette. The tactile mix of textured Walnut, embossed tin wall tiles with textured slate lends personality to the clutter free kitchen.


Exposing and unifying the lookbottom

The skylight in the Oak Shaker kitchen is divided by textured wooden beams and exposed sandstone, creating contrasts with the slick finish of the painted plaster. What we choose to expose and hide creates an interesting commentary for any contemporary kitchen.

Mixing materials doesn’t always require contrasting textures. The matt doors, matt walls and semi-matt floor tiles combine the same texture but still allow to stand out in the kitchen. The use of one grey hue ties the look together.

Jeepers Creepers

Here is a real-life horror story, team Set Vision’s transformation is eerily…normal. This terror of tails was created by our very own retouching department who took true delight in transforming our MDs! Quite a side step of their daily tasks of retouching our lifestyle photography and bespoke CGI designs. This family of true terrors wish you all a screamin’ Halloweeeeeeen!

Paint Trends for your home - Part 2

retro colour bloc (RT)

Based around the Colour Block trend emerging across fashion and interior design worlds, graphic colour patterns liven up interiors with hints of the 60s and 70s. From music, to fashion, to interiors, there is a vivid collaboration of Retro with a thoroughly modern twist. The room set shouts ‘Modern-Meets-Retro’ with a bold, colour block feel for a fun, fresh room. Bold, angular shapes create a living room set with the sharp colours and props you’d expect in a functional, mid-century inspired room set design. It was key to use a combination of the retro sideboard furniture piece with a modern sofa make over, mixed with a new classic graphic rug.

The paint style was a feature wall with a mural of geometric shapes and lines. Our decorator masked off sections and selected four colours from the new retro range. No need for paintings or pictures with feature wall like this.

Set design by our in house photographic stylist Nina. Constructed in our photographic studio along with a variety of other lifestyle interior sets.
