Kathleen Divney (1 Columbia Design) put together this kitchen on a strict budget, but kept it stylish and modern. We were shooting the reverse angle of this, and struggling with the large negative space formed by the countertop ell, when Kathleen dumped a bag of winter melons out on it. Bingo! It made the shot.
This was the last shot of the day, and when we scattered the melons across the ell, it pulled all the elements together. I knew I had a winner even before I looked at the laptop display.
