Have been popping into the garage all week to get November’s copy of 25 Beautiful Homes and finally it dropped onto the shelves today. Flicked through to find our cute little monochrome apartment on Page 112 entitled ‘Wise Investment’. It’s a lovely article and talks of inventive ideas and bargain buys, all spot on for a credit crunch…. I may want to buy everything at 100% Design, but reality kicks in when you are renovating a rental property, so it’s Ikea and B&Q all the way. Great article, but I am always surprised at what does and doesn’t get into the photo choices….
I was totally convinced that instead of the corner shown above, the main shot would be of the feature wall I’d stickered with the black flowers and crystals, but it was barely shown!
Am I just a fussy buggar or do the silver screws on the shelf brackets stand out a mile? Photoshop!
And yes, we ate all the cakes 🙂
It’s fab publicity and Maxine Brady, the journalist, did brilliantly to get it placed. Very rarely do these type of magazines feature rental homes, and owner occupiers always bump off us landlords…. or is it that I am the only landlord in the UK to fret over wallpaper and shoe cupboards……
