We love shooting our products on location so we decided that for our 2018 Home Collection photoshoot we would ditch the big London locations and studios and head up the road to the north Devon coast.
When we say that we’re based in Devon people often sound a little surprised. But Devon isn’t just cream teas and fudge, in fact it must be one of the most varied counties in the whole of the UK! From the pretty beaches and estuaries of the south coast, through rolling farmland and over two moors to the spectacular coastline of the north Devon coast, there is so much to see!
Nestled in the hills of the north coast just inland from the huge stretches of sand at Croyde and Putsborough lies Upcott Farm, a collection of beautifully restored stone barns painted in gorgeous cool colours.
The Lambshed and Calfshed may have kept their original names, but are now transformed into luxurious holiday retreats. Wood burning stoves, log baskets and a large country kitchen make everything so snug, and on the shoot the huge, comfortable beds sometimes looked just too tempting!
Upcott Farm was ours for three days and we set to work with our photographer and stylist to make the most of the lovely surroundings, which highlighted the texture and warmth of our faux furs and Revivacottons. We particularly loved the way the vivid colours of Sea Green, Ocean Blue and Coral came to life in the natural light. The blues and greys in our Revival recycled cotton collection sat perfectly against the warm wood and country setting.
Being so close to the coast in this secluded valley was incredibly peaceful. Even though we were working we felt calm. Everywhere there was something to delight the eye. We had such a lovely time…even if we did have to think about Christmas too!
On the final day in the kitchen at the Calfshed, the pale sun from the arched doors stole across our Revival table and we took the last shot.
We spread the benches in the courtyard with throws and comforters and flopped down to eat a slice of lemon drizzle cake baked by our host, Sarah and watched the ducks waddling by.
