Thanks Romantic Homes!

I just wanted to share that my home is the featured story and cover of the newest issue of Romantic Homes magazine. I'm blown away. To me it's just my little row house in foggy San Francisco...


Thanks to my dear friend Janet at FrenchBlue & Co. for writing the lovely story, and to Jacqueline deMontravel, the editor of Romantic Homes, for coming to my home and taking the photos. You gals are the BEST!



The 10-page story has photos of my collections, including my insane amount of hotel silver. It's actually been downsized a bit since the photos were shot. Too much silver to polish!



I love the fact that my wacky bright green bathroom was included. The house was built in 1939 and the kitchen and bathroom have their original tile, bathtub and sink. It's fun working with what you already have, as opposed to gutting it all. Gives it more character.

Well...thanks for letting me brag a bit. Actually, I'm quite humbled to be in this magazine. Kind of weird seeing your livingroom on the cover. It's the October issue...should be on newsstands now!

Congratulations!

I love browsing your online store and I can't wait to read the full article.

I did wonder about how long it took you to polish your silver. Then I saw your comment about downsizing your collection.

I imagine it's well worth the effort since softly gleaming silver is so gorgeous.

Cheers

I love your living room especially. And there are those hotel stools from your post a few days ago. Congratulations on the recognition of your fabulous style. I will be looking for the issue in the stores.

I can't wait to see this!

Funny about your silver--that's actually my husband's job at our house, and when he gets too lazy I end up packing it away for awhile, until he feels badly enough to dig it out and get buffing!

Rose Growing Gal said...

Congrats, Lynn! I thought your space deserved good attention - It is so beautiful and elegant!!! Also, I love the fact that it is well-edited and has just the right pieces...
I will buy this issue of magazine for sure!

PS: Cannot wait for my silver to arrive!
best
