Exciting News - Will We Get Published in a Magazine?

Yesterday, the Regional Editor for Meredith Publications (Better Homes & Gardens, Traditional Home, Family Circle, etc) came to do some scouting shots to pitch to the editors.  They're looking for kitchens and baths that have a high end look, but were done with a modest budget (of course my husband says I achieve that by working him too hard, always the funny guy!).  She had seen our blog and thought our place might be a good candidate.

She took lots of photos and will be submitting them to her editors shortly.  Then we have to wait and see if they have interest in setting up a full photo shoot.  A lot depends on what they already have planned - for example, do they already have lots of white kitchens lined up for publication?  But I'm hopeful we'll get to see it in print one of these days!!!  What do you think?  Do these look like magazine rooms?

In the meantime, I followed her around and tried to copy some of the camera angles she took.  Have a look!

  1. WOW! How exciting! I'll be crossing my fingers for you, though your house would be great for it! :)

  2. I knew it was just a matter of time before some magazine would recognize and appreciate your talents !!! This has to be very exciting to you your husband and all the folks who helped to bring this beautiful home back to life.
    I guess this means you won't be putting it on the market real soon either.

    Anyway, I still love this home and it is what I am now useing as the example of what I want my "new" home to be.

    Thanks again for sharing your journey of renovation,

    1. Thanks so much for your note Vanessa - we are very excited. Hard to believe there is so much interest! But we are still planning to put it on the market, in fact the Open House will be next weekend. So we're working like crazy to get all the last items completed.

      So glad to hear you've enjoyed the photos.


  3. I most certainly think your home is BHG worthy! Also Country Living Worthy too. You might want to submit some photos to a contributing editor there, Heather Bullard. She has a site at
    Hope it all works out!

    1. Thanks for the tip Stacey. And thanks also for the mention on Pinterest. I really appreciate it!
