‘Jewel In The Crown’
This week my house featured in the December 2017 issue of 25 Beautiful Homes. The house was dressed to the nines with Christmas cheer, and styled beautifully by Sian Williams and photographed by Brent Darby. It’s the second time one of my houses has been featured in the magazine, so thank you 25 Beautiful Homes.
What is always odd about shoots for magazines is that they are done so far ahead in advance. This feature was shot months ago, and since then new bits have been added or tweaked, so the photographs always remind me how much evolves in the house. The houses always look so large due to the lenses used, and so CLEAN too! The latter is due to a whirlwind of cleaning in preparation, so the ‘owner’s photo’ is always a bit hideous as I look very tired!
Here are some of the proofs that were taken. The favourites are then picked out by the editors for the final piece:
And here is the final layout, my rather useless scanner has not shown how lovely they actually look so apologies about that…
Anyhow, job done. It’s time to move house again now I think so I can start all over again….
