INTERIOR DESIGN: Sybille Palmer, Taos, New Mexico
Sybille Palmer is an Interior Designer in Taos, New Mexico. She learned her trade in Los Angeles doing residential design, but after visiting Taos, she fell in love with the land, the people and textures of our little town with big culture.
She bought an old adobe home downtown and renovated it from top to bottom, expanding rooms, extending ceilings, shaping the roofline, finding furniture and unique pieces from shops from Taos to Santa Fe.
The home is her show piece and I was the lucky lady commissioned to design her business website and photograph her adobe masterpiece.
When I do architectural photography I like to have people in my photos to fill the space with the kind of energy that really lives there. We design spaces to live in them, work in them, play in them. People are essential to the spaces. Without them, there is no need for the space. Having architectural photos with people gives context and allows your audience to envision themselves there, living that dream.
Do you ever wonder why people tend to squeeze into the kitchen elbow to elbow at parties. The food yes, but it also has to do with the fact that we are an edge species. We like to be at the edge of room, so that we can escape or engage as needed.
The Interior design of a home encourages behavior in a certain direction. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a home designed with you in mind?
