Extra Extra! HGTV Press


That first time one of my designs went to print. Like, print in a magazine. That time is this month because my dining room design is in HGTV's May issue!!


Which basically means that you'll find me in every magazine toting store in Charleston buying up the issue just so that I can casually mention to anyone in my vicinity that "I'm in it"!

I'm sure most of you recognize this as the dining room from my old house. I brought that chandelier here to our new home and it looks lovely here, too. Just so you know.

I share a page with Amanda Nisbet. Amanda Nisbet, y'all. Hell yes! Thank you HGTV. And an extra thank you to Rae McConville for bringing this whole color story to life. You rocked my world.

...

Alright, I've decided to tell you a side story to all this. For some reason I had in my head that my feature would be in the April issue (ooops). So last month I ran out to get the magazine (duh) and was quickly super bummed to flip through, not see my room, and think that I was cut. But I saw my friend Roxy in that issue so I was pretty pumped for her (her home's gorgeous, did you see it?). But then I went back to being sad for myself. And THEN Lilly says "I know why you're sad, Mom. You're sad because your friend is in the magazine and you're not."

I mean, whoa. What an intuitive statement to come out of my 3 year old's mouth. But Roxy, I swear it wasn't like that, ha!

Anyway, it's a little thing in the grand scheme of things. But between you and me, it's pretty awesome, too :)

That's so awesome!! And so totally normal to be disappointed!!! I'm waiting to find out something similar, but have a sneaking suspicion I was cut...and it bites. Love seeing your pretty spaces in print. Only thing that would have made it prettier is if they put your smiley mug next to it! ox
