Blu Dot Catalog and House Tour in Met Home

When the new Blu Dot catalogs come out each year I always try to imagine what sort of spaces they are using for the photo shoots (I am a photo dork). Are they in a studio? Are they in a home? What streets are they in? Oh, and of course, where is the lighting coming from and what sort of photo setup might they be using (ok, a major photo dork). We get a great glimpse of what they had to work with this year with their video outtakes from the shoot, but Antoi spotted even more insight. She noticed the same Son of a Bench catalog scene as what is featured in the home tour in Metropolitan Home’s November issue…

See the before (from the photo shoot):

And the after (in the Metropolitan Home article):

I could totally get sucked in and spend a few hours trying to find more common photos from the catalog and home tour. Gotta work, Ali. Gotta work!

Robbie and Patti Soskin…your home is BEAUTIFUL!

I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit.

    Blu Dot always has the coolest catalogs, ICFF booths, and newsletters. It’s funny, when I saw that house in Met Home I said “I wonder if that is a Blu Dot person’s house?” It reminded me of John C.’s house that they featured awhile back.
