Donna Talley


Photo stylist and story producer. Great job title isn't it. Donna Talley is just that. Her look is classically tailored and yet relaxed, feminine, natural with just a hint of European, hopsack and linen, scrubbed timber and Biedermeier. It's ironstone and baskets, fresh flowers and glass bottles, antique silverware and sun bleached colours. It's easy and elegant and soft. And it's lovely.

That dining room is just divine. I love the way the lines of the chairs, the chandelier, the art and the branches all conform without being contrived. And that bed is bliss. So beautifully put together.
thank you.

That's my favourite too. There is such an organic feel to it. I can imagine a Sunday family lunch in Provence over this table. :)

Oh, wow. *Several* of those pictures just went into my style file. Thank you.

And, I think I just figured out what to do with the accent wall behind my bed - hello sky blue!

Thank you so much for the great feature and the wonderful compliments! The photos above were shot in my home studio and also on location for various editorial projects.

Oh... what a beautiful post! Thank you for sharing :)
And I love your title/domain: "Desire to Inspire". I've got a silly thing about getting a good feeling when a brilliant, sweet domain name/title are chosen. And yours... it's perfect!
Lovely blog you've got here :)
