Every pictures is a home run on Our Food Stories, which gives us reason to believe that a friendship between a food stylist and photographer is one of best kinds of friendships out there - it creates amazing visuals which in their case, comes along with recipes to recreate their recipes. Laura and Nora also have a equally drool-worthy instagram.
We have such an admiration for the work these 2 ladies have done thus far, not just in the area of food styling and photography; they also share on design such as beautiful shops they love and interiors. We too share a love for food styling and all things design of course!
Keep up the great work ladies! Continue on for hungry-inducing photography and lovely interior shots..

Have you seen the range from the new homewares online store, Arro Home? Well, if you haven't we're glad you found your way here because it is really something not to be missed. You might have seen some of the photos being repinned on pinterest, like how Little Big Bell found it. Thank you Geraldine for the beautiful post.
Another amazing brand to come out of Australia. (I personally haven't been there but after the things I've seen coming out of there, I can't wait to visit!)
There are so many more pretty visuals in their collection, it's just unbelieveable! Another unbelievable (well, you can't blame us) fact is that we want everything. It's really hard to pick favorites, especially after seeing these beautiful images, you can already imagine how perfectly they would look together in your home.
Photography by Brooke Holm and Styling by Marsha Golemac, the ever so talented ladies!

Class Alert: Watercoloring class with Arounna from Bookhou
Watercolouring is now more than just musings on paper, it is seamlessly being intertwined with objects in our everyday lives. With an artistic play of liquid hues, you can transform simple objects or fabrics into beautiful home accessories to brighten up your room or even fashion pieces like totes to spice up your wardrobe! All this can be achieved with the help of Arounna Khounnoraj -- textiles genius, artist and founder of Bookhou! Arounna will teach you the basic watercolour techniques such as wet-in-wet, glazing and washes for you to create lively visuals pleasing to the eye. The results are stunning and magical. You will be amazed at your own work! But that’s not all… you will learn to transfer your watercolour expressions into practical items, something you can show off in your home or on the streets! So why not let this be a date to instill a sense of renewed energy towards watercolouring!
Arounna will also be teaching a shibori class while she's here! Read more about it here. And if you are interested in attending both classes, well we couldn't be happier and of course there is always a special deal for that!
PACKAGE DEAL Attend both of Arounna’s classes, 'Water, Paint and Brushes!’ --- and --- ‘Shibori Dyeing with Indigo’, and enjoy a $40 discount by dropping us an email to purchase both classes.
3 fun hours of engaging in a hands-on art experience… Creating patterns, replicating physical objects with paint or just splashing colours to create your own unique art playground! Open to all abilities, the workshop will cover a demonstration of watercolour techniques by Arounna, sufficient time for you to express your creativity and plenty of feedback and help from the teacher. You will not only wave goodbye with your very own art pieces but a goodie bag to continue creating more watercolour magic at home. Accompanied with delicious food and drinks, it will be a great time of discovering your own style, unlocking your creativity, and finding your creative voice! You can even bring along your child for a fun time of bonding over water, paint and brushes!
