That Time I Was In Homestyle Magazine

Scandinavian Living Room

Not shortly after my Made Unboxed photoshoot, the lovely ladies from Beautiful Homes in the North got in touch to see if they could shoot my home, too. Of course, I agreed, and informed Kane that I'd be having another crazy couple of weeks of doing odd bits of painting, organising and cleaning up! Fast forward a year later (my feature was pushed back thanks a couple of us having the same rug, damn the popularity of the La Redoute Afaw!) and I was in print in the April issue.

A positive of having the issue take so long to go to print was that Katie managed to find the time to come round and re-shoot the kitchen after our renovation. She sent over all the pictures after the issue had been published, including the our old kitchen, and whilst she had obviously done her best to style it up and look as nice as possible, it made me realise what an improvement the new kitchen was! 

Of course, quite a lot around the house has also been changed since, but it's still lovely to look back and get such great quality pictures of our home. Perhaps some day it'll be changed enough everywhere that they can come back and do another one, although I'm not sure if my back is up to all the cleaning these days!

If you've followed me for a while, you might recognise that the dining room has been decorated (more on that next week!), my office is now Ada's room, and my bedroom has been decorated too. Still, it was a bit of a pinch me moment to see myself actually in a magazine, and yep, I've kept two copies as keepsakes!

  1. Oh, wow! That's fantastic news. My favourite room is definititely the dinning area, such a stylish and space-saving space. And the La Redoute rug can look so different depending on how you decorate the room.
