Yard Remodel Project: Outdoor Entertaining and Relaxing

 

DIYer architect John Tong, founding principal of 3rd Uncle Design, turned a century-old industrial dairy in a back alley into a home with a colorful playground for three kids.  “The courtyard is an extension of the house, with a big table that hosts parties, a stage for impromptu performances, and part of an old loft overhead that will one day become a tree house for the children.”

Vintage Preppy, an Engagement Photo Shoot by Tinywater Photography

 

Paper flowers, stacks of vintage books, cute props, an antique car and typewriter, old luggage bags and more.  An amazing styled “Vintage Preppy” photo shoot from the talented duo Caroline and Daniel behind Tinywater Photography.

I have been a fan of Tinywater Photography’s hip, fun and offbeat photographs for a long time now; and have come across many of their beautiful shots over the years.  There is something about their artistic style that catches your eye and who better to describe their style other than the artists themselves.
