Just another day in a 40,000-square-foot house

Well, hello there.

Recently shot Joan Behnke, interior decorator to very wealthy people, for Forbes in the 40,000-square-foot home of one of her clients. What does it mean to shoot in a home that size? It means scouting takes an hour, and you end up not sure if you should shoot in the massage parlor, the beauty salon/barber shop, the poker room or the movie theater. It means safety comes second, because not knocking over vases and sculptures comes first. It means very little time passes between walking on a carpet and that carpet being vacuumed. The housekeeper kept vacuuming our staging area.

And when you eventually decide to shoot in the giant living room, it means using every light you’ve got, even though you recently bought more lights.

Isn’t she just a doll? Loved working with her.
