This styling mat collaboration is brought to you by both Lindale Studios and Julie Paisley
Introducing the limited collection of styling mats “Memories of France”…these are rollable pieces of art that help your creative eye capture detailed flat lays that serve your clients who want details captured easily. They also are perfect for easily creating fine art over structured styling. Julie Paisley and I joined creative forces, and are excited to have brought this beautiful collection to life!
I was able to travel to France recently, and was blown away by how the different areas are all over France. From the shores of Normandy, to the colors of Giverny, the options that lend to color and texture are endless. Julie Paisley has photographed in France MANY times, and loves the beauty of Paris and especially southern France so it was only fitting that she photograph the mats and lend her expertise!
These are the reasons I chose France to be the inspiration for this launch.
- France has a history of being the epitome of luxury and has a high influence on the wedding and fashion industry when it comes to heritage, fashion, and even food! Paris has been known as the city of love, and has remained a top destination for honeymoons. Because of the high influence France has had in the wedding industry, it definitely needed its own inspirational launch.
- The color and inspiration of France gives so many options for photographers and stylists! Between the florals in Giverny, to the neutrals in Paris, the possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to put these styling mats in your hands. This beautiful country is filled with visually calming colors for you to use for your wedding or styling days.
I was able take my personal inspiration and transfer it to a notebook so that I could figure out the best way to paint the styling mats. As I was visiting these places, I realized that I had many preconceived notions regarding the colors and feelings of the different locations. Some of the spots that I thought would have a ton of color actually ended up being really neutral, and one of them provided me with the most beautiful color combinations that I’ve been able to paint with to date!
There are 6 styling mats to choose from in this collection, based on different locations.
4. Monet’s Water Lilies
5. St. Michel/Normandy
I firmly believe that styling mats (in combination with good photography and styling) are a wonderful way to make your photographs stand out. (whether its detail shot, or florals, or shoes, or accessories) Styling mats are a tool, yes, not the only solution, but definitely one of them! I’m all about brush strokes and texture helping to push the boundaries in flat lays and styling.
You can say goodbye to plain backdrops with no inspiration, and welcome mats that are visually appealing, engaging, and show off even the simplest of details and invitation suites. Get ready to take inspiring pieces that take the load off of styling, and make flat lays easier to build. Whether you want to just photograph one flower, or even just two paper pieces, these mats that look incredible on their own will only help to elevate and support through hand painted brush strokes.
Are you ready for some new styling mats that elevate? I’m are excited to put them into your hands.
