From sourcing fabrics to testing out new styles, there's never a boring moment at Adea. One of the most exciting parts of the job, in my opinion, is scouting locations for our photo shoots. For us, in particular, it can be challenging to find a backdrop that won't drown out our basics. Ornate furniture, harsh surroundings or lots of bright color can detract from the minimalistic look and feel of Adea's bodywear. We require just the right amount of background texture and architectural interest to compliment the simplicity of our products. Not too much, not too little.
Massachusetts, where we call home, is full of old mill buildings built in the early 1900s. Many communities across the state have partnered with developers and local businesses to bring these buildings back to functionality. The buildings possess incredible character, unique details, and plenty of nooks and crannies with beautiful natural light. After a bit of cleaning (ok, a lot of cleaning!) this old mill building might just have what it takes. What do you think?
Expansive 2nd floor with tons of natural light
Curved, wooden staircase
Huge doors and windows with lots of natural light
Stay tuned to see what the images look like after the shoot.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
