When I found out that my old bedroom was the cover shot for Better Homes & Gardens I couldn’t believe it. I screamed, of course, but a part of me was like “I’m pretty sure I hallucinated that” and until I saw it I still kind of expected the magazine to arrive and have a cake on the cover instead. Well, it’s TRUE and I am shocked, honored, flattered and flabbergasted. My first cover. On a huge national magazine. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME????
It’s funny, since not only is this my old place in the city, but I only lived there for 8 months! But thanks to the amazing styling of Stacy Kunstel and the incredible photography of Michael Partenio (also the owners of Dunes & Duchess- check them out) we took some great images. Go pick up a copy! But in the meantime, here is the article:
A lot of people have asked about the bedding- it was from Lands End, but is no longer available! Why don’t more affordable bedding producers make coral banded bedding??? Lamp by Jill Rosenwald, bench from Ballard Designs in Duralee fabric, nightstand and dresser are antiques, bed is Crate & Barrel, wall color is Elephant Skin by Behr (AWESOME color).
Here are some shot that didn’t make the article, but I still think are fabulous!
This one was int he article, but small, and I love it :)
LOVE this shot from the studio!
I had to share what is the best picture every take of all four of us too. :)
And they also filmed a video at the studio of some tips (and Lindsey and I being a little spastic over a magazine). More proof of why I’ll never be a TV star.
