I am very pleased that my home has had a feature in the interiors magazine ‘The English Home’ this month (November 2015 issue). It is a very smart glossy, and it seems like a lifetime ago that the crew appeared to photograph the house. I can safely say that I have never cleaned a house as much as I did in the lead up to the shoot, it was pristine. Even the picture rails got a clean….
Since then I have already redecorated two rooms – the breakfast room and the spare bedroom, so it shows that I just cannot sit still when it comes to experimenting and using the house as a testing ground.
The photographer very kindly sent me copies of the photos, as my own image capturing skills above look a bit lacking:)
It is quite a mixed bunch of feelings seeing your home immortalised! One one hand, it looks so grown up and calm (unlike real life most of the time!), and on the other hand it makes me itch to punch some darker colours and patterns into it. I think I need to be braver and bolder in the use of colours now. I had my last home featured in 25 Beautiful Homes, and it is interesting to see how some of the furniture and objects are rehoused/placed/decorated in a different way in this current house. Plus I also can see how much retail therapy has taken place, which is a bit alarming!
