Hi Everyone! I love going to the mailbox and finding something other than bills:)… yesterday I was pleased to find Meredith Corporation had mailed me my copy of the new Kitchen and Bath Makeover magazine featuring my kitchen!!! (On stands in a few days!) Not only that, but the cover photo is of a kitchen that I got to help assist the photo stylist with- so needless to say it was a very exciting trip to the mailbox!
Here are some pictures of the project which happens to be our kitchen. Yes, sad to say it took me almost 3 years to complete as they noted in the article- I’ve been a busy girl!
As many of you know these photo shoots are done sometimes a year in advance before making it to the newsstands. So as a designer you can imagine how often I like to change things up…my point being is that this space looks a little different now. Last fall we took on the project of adding an addition off the kitchen/eat-in area. Here is a picture of what it looks like now with the sliding door and the windows in the eat-in area removed:
I know…totally different right? I also painted the island while I was at it!
Here is a professional shot of the room (me and my little cutie pie):
Back to KBM:
And this gorgeous kitchen on the cover was so much fun to style. It was a long day with some very talented people and once again a great experience! I was in charge of styling all the glass cabinets- there was a lot of up and down on a ladder that day:) Being a photo stylist is a lot harder than it sounds and I have the utmost respect for my fellow photo stylists that do it for a living!
Thank you KBM magazine and Meredith Corporation for once again, making my day and featuring one of my projects in your fabulous magazines!
I hope everyone has a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend!
