Brian Andriola encore

Beauty is everywhere ... the motto of American stylist Brian Andriola.  He gathers and layers and weaves beauty. The ordinary and extraordinary combine. Everyday becomes spectacular.  It's not just curating, it's telling a story, creating a dream. Kim first introduced us to Brian's work in 2008 via his then rep's site but now Brian has his own website brimming with all things bright and beautiful. Bliss!

Does anyone have any idea how that enormous branch is staying upright in that little bowl next to the bed (15th picture)?!?

Good enough to eat!!!

A little to 'Ballard Design' for my eclectic taste, but lovely to look at nonetheless. I was thinking about painting our clawfoot tub....until I saw that first image!

I rather like this blue theme in the bathroom. If you want a good tip, it's often a good idea to put some blue / green on the ceiling in the bathroom: the bath water will end up looking like a tropical sea (it's the reflection of the sky that gives the water its great blue colour!)

You had me at the tub.
Love it.

That is not a branch, that is a whole child tree... :s
Other than I feel sorry for the tree,
these pictures are fabulous I love the vibe.

I love ALL these rooms/spaces! Nice mix of all kinds of items, furniture, sources.

blu tak? in reference to the branch/tree/shrub.

The branch if you look closely is in a tall cylinder, still a would place rocks, marbles or whatever to give it weight to give it a little more stablility.

Absolutely stunning! I love every picture!

I believe there is a floral "frog" built into the bottom of the bowl. These bowls are used as you know in Japanese floral arrangements.
That is my guess...it does sort of look like the bed is supporting it also. Gorgeous photos, talented for sure!

Lot of speculation on the maple branch that was likely suspended from the ceiling or wall just for this photo shoot. Not likely that such a tall and weighty object could be supported from a floral frog.

And fret not, Sey, commenting on the 18th of June...it is not a "whole child tree", just a little bit of pruned nature brought inside to finesse a little magic on a charming bedroom space. Your sympathy would be more worthily directed at the thousand of acres of rainforest being mowed down in Brazil.

And as for all the other photos, Brian Andriola is definately a colourist supreme. Lovely.

Thank you Desire to Inspire for taking the time to highlight my work! Wow.
The selection of images you have span years of practice, learning every bit along
the way. Of course we all make mistakes and so for those of you questioning the
tree, well thats not something I would do again. For the other comments and praise,
thank you so much.
Keep creating, Brian Andriola

Brian has always created welcoming havens, even for the frogs he used to catch (and release) as a boy. As far as that branch, yes, Lavender is right. Brian would never destroy nature for a shoot. But as his proud Mom, I have seen him defy design logic and even gravity at times, which is why his rooms are so magical!

Oh, Brian! These are gorgeous. I love the one of the set table looking out onto the field. Xo, Chiara
