WHERE MAGIC MEETS ATMOSPHERE:
Beauty is reflected in Ella Swenson's work as she incorporates touches of the natural world, and dream world in aspects of her production.
A Natural & Abandon World Collide: The forgotten city combines natural elements, memories of what once was, weathered school books, and the glamourous story of a disheveled future.
OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES
Gypsy boho tent: This tent was constructed of vintage scrap materials all hand sewn together. The interior of the tent is filled with vintage trinkets, pillows, salvaged carpet squares for the floor, hanging bottles, dream catchers and touches of the wild-naturual world. This boho tent gains additional greenery and shells throughout the shoot.
Grandma's living room: this outdoor living scene is inspired by an old ladies living room. A large crystal chandelier hangs from a branch while velvet seating, outdated frames, and cozy touches are full of senior nostalgia. The floor was the pride of joy in construction, which was completely hand laid piece by piece with reclaimed wood.
FULL MOON SET:
comprised of hand filled jars full of potions, magic & whimsy. Each jar is labeled with leather or wood labeled in romanian gypsy. Vintage oddities fill the space along with live mice, snakes, crickets & goldfish. The table tops are covered in moss and nature bringing this set to life.
