{at home with: photographer carter smith}


. . . back from an idyllic weekend in the countryside and still dreaming of deep, rich tones for the coming days when the sound of fallen leaves breaks the mid-afternoon silence and warm and romantic fireplaces crackle with newly chopped wood and everywhere, dark rich huesthe colours of autumn . . .

. . . and here, carter smith’s photographic work, intermingled with the warm deep colours of his darkly cozy home . . .

{p.s.} also new:
* at home with: marc jacobs
* side project: camilla belle

* inspiration: elle russia
* fall colours: jewel tones
* photography + illustration: do.ri under.ligne
