Refueled: Revisited

Photographer, designer, collector and master of all things creative, Cheryl Schulke is a genius at capturing the essence of an entire room in a single vignette shot. Here are a few of my favorite outtakes from the images she took for the Refueled photoshoot. Seeing snippets of my previous home in all its glory takes me on one heck of a trip down memory lane!

This is your home?! Girl you have some seriously great taste.

Yoli: It was my home in Houston. We moved from there 2 months ago and my home now looks nothing like this :) We're still in the "where should be put cleaning supplies" stage! Thanks for the compliment though. xx

Courtney- this are beautiful shots! How fun it will be to add these shots to your new home walls. I like the first photo. Growing up our post office box number was 212. Many hugs.... xoxo

These out takes are so great...212 is my hubby's birthday, so I automatically am drawn to that pic.

Sorry about your fender bender...hope you're ok!

Makes me homesick for all the times we had in that house with you and JJ! I am especially sad to see snippets of "my room" and remember all the good times we had together cooking, reading, hanging out, and of course, our shopping trips too. Can't wait for you to "come home" again!

I'm seeing things I didn't even see before! that basket over the light fixture is fantastic. I love that house courtney you did such a great job.

PS~Erin said...

Oh wow. These photos are awesome. So very cool to have, I'm sure.

Gorgeous, glad your memory trip is a happy one!

Courtney said...

Thank you all so so much! It's a good feeling to remember a previous home with such fond memories. I loved that tiny bungalow!!

Amber Smith: The dining room chairs are Bertoia chairs. You can buy them from Design Within Reach. Mine were salvaged from my parent's house and I had them chrome dipped - but you can also try your luck on eBay and thrift shops!

These photos just make me smile. Your taste has such a Southern charm to it and I love that!

I stumbled across your blog and the photos of your old house and LOVE IT!!! I was wondering where you got the "Manhattan" map poster hanging in the bedroom?

Thanks,
