How do you show the luster of dark wood in a turn-of-the-century craftsman surrounded by tall trees on a typical gray Pacific Northwest winter day? You enlist the expertise of talented interior photographer, George Barberis. George is used to working in challenging light. For his recent shoot featured in the February/March issue of Gray Magazine, he brought his own.“I was working in a beautiful, heavily wooded area of the Ladd's Addition neighborhood in Portland, so I set up lighting on really tall stands outside of the bungalow.” 

George was intent on showcasing the wealth of mahogany woodwork and luxurious materials – velvet, silk and brass
 – selected by Portland interior designer Casey Keasler — founder and creative director of Casework. George and Casey were working in small craftsman rooms where Casey had balanced the early 19th century-style of the home with curvy lines, clubby leather chairs and glam accents. 

For George, the challenge was fitting the entire look into the magazine’s image aspect. To make the home photo-ready, the pair spent the day rearranging furniture. The final images show off the home’s newfound luster and inspired décor—complete with hand-painted magnolia blooms by artist, Michael Paulus: Collective sigh.
