Teenagers obsess over Justin Bieber. Grown-up women obsess over Fifty Shades of Grey. And then there are others like me (and probably you) that obsess over the work of amazing stylists like Glen Proebstel.
This master stylist has worked with big name brands such as Sonos, H&M, West Elm, and many many others. His portfolio showcases how crazy talented he is; from food to interiors and homewares, Glen’s eye for detail is nothing short of phenomenal. Working with so many materials is no easy task – you gotta know almost everything about anything: fabrics and how they move, surfaces and how they’ll reflect, rooms and how they’ll photograph, etc. etc. sounds intense, doesn’t it?! But Glen Proebstel makes it all come together in a very natural/artistic way.
My jam is rustic and moody, so I may or may not have pinned 99% of his work onto my Pinterest boards. Oh and his latest work for the holidays with H&M? So sassy!
If you need some inspiration to redecorate your home or to put a nice vignette together – either for the holidays or just because – you should certainly take style cues from his work. I think a major takeaway style tip is that whatever you do, make sure it looks either natural or “meant to be”, by this I mean: let the elements come together nicely almost as if you didn’t even try to style them (which is actually quite hard!) or go the other route and totally create something conceptual. Try to avoid mixing both as it can easily turn into a style fail.
Now if you excuse me, this guy’s work got me all jelly and I wanna revamp my living room…and bedroom..and pretty much my whole apartment. Shit..oh well!! C’est la vie of the stylist.
