Sweet Paul Blog

November 23, 2010

I just shared the decor8 book of the week, Romantic Style, so now I’d like to highlight the blog of the week, Sweet Paul. This is one heck of a blog to read if you are dieting, so calorie counters beware! But it’s just too yummy to pass by and reading and looking at gorgeous imagery is fat-free, so I guess that’s fair enough. Feast your eyes!

Sweet Paul Blog

Sweet Paul is a delicious blog authored by stylist/crafter Paul Lowe, who develops recipes and crafts for editorial and commercial projects. Can you believe that he has published 22 cookbooks in 12 languages? Amazing! He also has an online magazine (here) that is gorgeous and on his Sweet Paul blog he publishes inspiration and new recipes several times a week! How’s that for an all-star blogger?

Paul Lowe is a huge inspiration to me personally which is why I wanted to talk about his work today — I find his blog and magazine a delight and I think that you will to if you haven’t already heard of him. His eye is amazing, and his styling work always feels modern and clean while also being quite soulful, welcoming, calming and crafty.

Originally from Oslo, he moved to New York and now works with some of the best photographers and clients in the industry and his prop styling is nothing short of perfect. I was reading that he started out as a florist and now here he is today. I love this interview with him on the Spoonful Blog, it’s amazing to read about this bloggers experience attending a shoot that Paul directed and styled, so I encourage you to read more about her experience along with an interview, here.

    I am such a huge fan of Sweet Paul’s work. His styling is impeccable! I was so excited when he released an online mag — and it is one of my favorite to look through :)

    Paul is such an inspiration to me, Holly, so it’s lovely to see his blog being featured here today. You are right, his styling is spot-on and has this effervescent yet hugely calming feeling – a hard thing to do well.

    I feel like I’m in a Thanksgiving food tunnel, so thank you for posting about Sweet Paul. What an inspiration–the styling, the photography, the recipes and crafts–all so amazing.

    Where do you find these? I’m not sure you’ve ever listed one that I had heard of previously, and they’re all amazing. Such pretty pictures, is that a polka-dotted strawberry shake? Good heavens.

    It IS a feast for your eyes! I think I saw that recipe for a strawberry milkshake with marshmallows. Looks divine every time I see it!

    I love Sweet Paul too- and LOVE his onlinne magazine… and on that note, he is hoping to raise funds to bring the “experience” onto an all new level… (it is all done on a shoe-string budget) You can donate any amount, no matter how small, and there are great incentives for the more you give!! I cannot WAIT to go behind the scenes to see how he creates those fantastic photos!!!
