This past week, Steve and I received a very exciting surprise. Our friend, photographer Lisa Romerein sent an email to me saying that I needed to check out my Instagram feed. Lisa explained that Veranda Magazine's editor-in-chief, Clinton Smith, just posted the January/February 2015 cover. She said that I was probably sitting in the cover...
With hands trembling, I quickly looked on my phone... there in Clinton's image was my office... on the cover!!!
It still seems like a dream... the words on the cover "Homes with Heart" are so meaningful to us. Steve and I really did put our heart and soul into the building of Patina Farm. We spent months dreaming and designing every detail of our house and the gardens that surround it.
Steve and I can't wait for you to see the Patina Farm feature in the next issue of Veranda... it will hit newstands December 30th.
Thank you to Clinton Smith and Lisa Romerein for making my office look so gorgeous!
I also want to invite all of you to check out the new Velvet and Linen blog design. I've cleaned things up a bit! I've also included a link called "Building Patina Farm", which captures all of the posts about our Patina Farm design process from start to finish. At the moment, the posts included in the link don't seem to include all of your comments, but we're working on correcting that!
Let me know what you think!
