Thank you L’idea Shabby Chic & Remnants of the Past

 Thank you Aurelia of Taltilo publications for featuring our home in the August/September issue of L’idea Shabby Chic. I was honored to  find out that our home made the issue. I photographed and styled this a few months ago, and could not believe my eyes when I saw that MY image made cover!!!

It is a wonderful spread and I had so much fun styling and photographing for this!

Thank you again, and I look forward to working with you!!!

I moved the furniture around for this shoot, I love to do that. 

It is amazing that with just a few changes your home can have a completely different feel.

I had my mom translate what they said in Italian for me and it was wonderful. They said such nice things. I

do not want to bore you with it LOL, so please just enjoy the images.

  22. Hi Lulu!!!

    It was soooo wonderful meeting you for the first time at Rachel's book signing last Thursday evening! :) Your blog/wonderful home has been quite an inspiration since I started blogging a few months ago, so it was a pleasure to meet you in person! :)

    And...congrats on these published images!!! You are sooo talented, so it's no surprise that they'd only have wonderful things to say about you! :) Oh and I hope you enjoyed Remnants! Can't wait to see the pics from this event.
