The September issue of Better Homes & Gardens just hit newsstands and guess what?! I’m in it! It’s the magazine’s annual Stylemaker issue there is a 3 page story on me, my apartment and my tips and tricks for decorating with color! A while back I told you that I was redecorating and gave you a little sneak peek and I’m so excited to share these photos of the finished space from BHG! Being a part of the BHG Stylemaker issue is a kind of a big deal since it focuses specifically on influential personalities that are making their mark in world of all thing home. Thank you  to the BHG team for the huge honor and thanks also to the uber talented photographer David Land, hair and makeup artist Ananda Kahn and stylist Natasha Louise King for lending your artistic vision to help make this shoot a success! Below are some snapshots from the story. Be sure to pick up a copy on newsstands now or download the digital edition which features a cool interactive color tool that let’s you play around with the color palette from my home by changing the color of my walls. There’s also a feature where you can design your own room using colors and fabrics inspired by my living room. It’s very cool. And in the coming weeks, be sure to check back on the blog I’ll be sharing multiple posts with more details on my space including before and afters, DIY projects and more. Stay tuned!
