Joan Behnke, the Interior Designer to the Stars!

The Carola Myers team recently had the pleasure of working with “Interior Designer to the Stars” Joan Behnke. The creative interior design visionary has worked with a variety of A-list clientele including Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, Thomas Barrack, the billionaire founder of Colony Capital, and Alec Gores, private equity billionaire, among many others. The world-renowned designer was recently honored in DC for her outstanding work and we provided our services to her for the big event. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her - what an amazing lady! And yet another example of the strong, smart and empowered women we love to engage with in our daily work. For more on this one-of-a-kind woman, be sure to check out her website.

Salamander Resort & Spa Production Work

We once again had the honor of working with up-and-coming hotspot, the Salamander Resort, in beautiful Middleburg, Virginia. The resort, home to a luxurious nature-inspired spa experience, recently did some production work to create a series of online and print advertisements. We were thrilled to be able to provide our makeup and hair services to the models that will appear within the ads. All of the project photos were taken by the talented Justin Kriel, a DC-based photographer known for his commercial and portrait work.

We are very much looking forward to seeing the finished project – we think the beauty of the resort and relaxed, calming ambience of the spa will really shine through! Below are a few behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot. A BIG thanks Patti, one of our absolute best Senior Artists, for her work on this project!
