Not only am I interiors obsessed, I’m also a total magazine junkie. I love them all, house, fashion and even the trashy women magazines too, but I don’t think I’ve found an interiors magazine I’ve not bought. So you can’t imagine how excited I was when I got a message on Instagram from a journalist, asking if I’d be interested in showing our home in Your Home magazine. Oh my gosh, I could have burst with joy … at first! Yup, you’ve read that right, at first. Panic then set in but I did go ahead, so let me show you a few of the photos from the day.
I won’t lie, it was a long long day, and made more difficult with two rather inquisitive bears, but it was made so much easier by Natalie, the journalist and Darren the photographer.
Both came with props for the day, Natalie bought the most beautiful flowers and cushions with her, and Darren bought food. I had actually baked some cup cakes for the day, but he bought some cake and also oranges … yup, you read that right, Oranges. Apparently it looks better in a photograph if the fruit is all one colour. I’ve since when looking through magazines, have noted that all photos in kitchens tend to include bowls of lemons or oranges! Who knew.
The magazine is now out, as its the August edition, and its so amazing to see how they’ve made our home look. I’ll share with you next time some photos that didn’t make the edition.
