Better Homes & Gardens Shoot

Yesterday a team from Better Homes & Gardens Magazine photographed my DC Design House room for an upcoming issue!  Art director Shelley Caldwell flew into DC to direct the shoot done by photographer Helen Norman & her assistant F.J. Hughes for the day.

Like all good photoshoots, props were brought in to make the room feel more lived-in.  They brought in some things that I would have loooved to have taken home with me incuding some cute bags.  :)

They took my picture in one of the madhatter wing Chairs & it was pretty hysterical because my man hands kept getting in the way. 


Dave (my husband) came to help me undo the room after the photoshoot and it was crazy to see the showhouse room almost empty again.  We loaded most of the room back into our cars and headed home.  Very bittersweet, but onto the next thing!  :)

Oh how fun! You're getting to be a pro at photoshoots, right? Still adore the room and can't wait to see it in BHG. I had a layover in DC two weeks ago and sooo wanted to come by!

Man hands.... You make me laugh! I always think of my hands that way....Because they are large, strong and can do anything, right??? Love them!
I can imagine how you feel to dismantle this wonderful room, which took you long to conceive and set up! But I am sure, as you say: On to new things! All is in flux!

I think this room you created was just over the top perfection!!! Seriously beautiful pieces and the giant window seat - love it! I will really look forward to seeing this space in BHG. Must have been so sad to take it apart.

Lauren- I can't wait to see your stunning room in the magazine! Tell us what issue when you know.

I hope you were able to find a few minutes to lie alone in the windowseat and just stare out the windows while the room was up. What a peaceful room it was!

You are so talented, I love all that you have done. I'm wondering if you could share the fabric manufacturer, type and color of your green sofa. I love that green sofa!
Thanks!

First, congratulations for being featured on a Home & Garden magazine. It's such a great achievement which pays all your efforts and hard work and I must say. You deserved it.

You've mentioned some things you'd loved to have taken well mine would be the huge white laptop correct me if i'm wrong. It's just so elegant and I'm pretty sure it has a lot of great features and options.

Congratulations again Lauren
