We heard through the grapevine that it was hitting stands Tuesday, so...imagine Hooper's
surprise shock when she was in the checkout last night at the grocery and saw the issue on stands.
Yep and after adding a bottle of champagne to her groceries and scraping herself off the floor, we read it (100 times).
We were dying to tell you about it but were sworn to secrecy. We love HGTV magazine because it gives you attainable design. Since that is where we shine, we are thankful they picked up on the importance of mixing it up to give the client the layered and collected look she wanted for her family.
While the article makes it sound like we effortlessly pulled it off in a girls' weekend, in reality, it was an eighth month process of bargain hunting, CraigsList stalking, and junk shop diving while our trusting client lived abroad.
To be able to see the end result in a glossy mag is any designer's dream come true.
See our post of the living room for more pictures of the room and the design process. Of course, we love how super stylist Matthew Gleason styled each room down to each perfect detail. The shot showcases the $10 hammered copper table we scored at a London flea market and $4 chairs Amy found on Ebay (yes, we have turned her into one of us). Mixing these finds with a pricey Oriental gave us a rich layered look while allowing us to stay
within under budget.
The article is chocked full of design tips including great online shops. It even mentions a couple of our local haunts! Be sure to check them out and do some bargain hunting of your own. To see more, visit out post about the master bedroom.
