Sandringham Court Shoot / by Jean Bai

When shooting neutrals, go for the soft morning light look. There was plenty of light coming through in the kitchen area of this renovation of a craftsman home in Montclair. Architects Kristen Sidell and Rudabeh Pakravan of Sidell Pakravan continued their neutral palette in the bathrooms they renovated throughout the house. The summer light can be quite strong for shooting neutrals, even on a cloudy day such as this one. We worked around it as much as possible by finding times of the day in which the light didn't directly shine in.
