In Good Taste: Eric Piasecki

kitchen Eric Piasecki Photography

 There’s a reason we don’t have a bunch of pictures of our own houses on our blog. We’re terrible photographers! No doubt about it, photographing is a real art, and photographing homes is a style all its own. The most fabulous home can look below par in the hands of an amateur photographer. That’s why we are so enamored of the photography of the very talented Eric Piasecki. From the kitchen to the office to the dining room, Piasecki makes every paint color, wood floor and piece of hardware shine under the right light. We hope you love this photographer’s good taste as much as we do!

We’ve said it before, and we’ll probably say it again: Fabulous furnishings are nothing without stunning photography. Perfectly filled bookcases look off balance, ideally proportioned chairs look too small… The list goes on and on and on. But, in the hands of a skilled professional, each room looks just as chicly amazing as it does in real life–and in the mind of the designer who dreamed it.

This is undoubtedly a tricky space to style. We never would have put this together, but it’s fabulous!

The femininity of the furnishings pair beautifully with more masculine dark wood and horns. Perfect for every member of the family!

The juxtaposition of the raw wood ceiling with the crystal chandelier is gorgeous. The entire space makes a one-of-a-kind statement.

And, thanks to the lens of Alyssa Roseheck Photography that captured it all so well, we are sure you agree. We hope your day is wonderful!

In Good Taste: Eric Piasecki Photography

Beautiful homes and gorgeous landscapes can be a lovely and soothing and fabulous as can be. But, captured from the wrong angle, in the wrong light or… well… by the the wrong person, even the most amazing designs can fall flat. That’s one of the reasons that we were so enamored of Eric Piasecki Photography right from the start. He is an expert at casting every design in the right light, making everything he photographs seem in perfectly good taste. We think his work speaks for itself!
