Don’t you love it when people make their homes an extension of themselves? When you can tell how much effort, attention, and creativity they put into making this corner of the world completely theirs? This is how Ben and Laura’s loft in Somerville is. I’ve watched Ben create an absolutely gorgeous space for him and his girl over the past year and a half, and I’m so super proud of him. He grew up in his grandma’s home (with his mama and his grandpa), and his grandmother took the same kind of pride, creativity, and resourcefulness to create her gorgeous nest. It’s so obvious where he gets his inspiration. I’m taking an editorial portraiture class, and for my first assignment I decided to photograph my best friend in his space.
Here is the result:
