OMG! WHAT?? NO WAY!!!

Those were my exact words the day I found out that my dining room made the cover of the French Country Style magazine. I still can't believe it!

I was told by Fifi O'Neal a couple weeks ago and sent the photo. She told me I could share the news, but I wanted to see it in print before I shared my excitement! Well, it is out now and I am going to boast a bit because I just can't hold my excitement in!

It hit the newsstands last week and I didn't even know it until someone left a comment on my blog on Thursday morning. I knew it was coming soon, but did not have an exact date. Later that morning I was standing in Barnes and Noble with several copies in my hand. The cashier said there must be something special about this magazine. Yep, my home is in it and on the cover. She said congratulations.
 I will be receiving a copy from Harris Publishing, but I couldn't wait for that.

When Gridley & Graves photographers were here in February I didn't think my shoot would be printed until next year, but then I found out it was coming out this year. My shoot was supposed to be mid January and it got postponed so even the photographers thought it was too late for this year's issue.

I am hoping to get some of the jpg.'s from Fifi and some outtakes to share. I think she is on the road doing some shoots at the moment. There was a cute one taken of Miss Bailey that didn't make the cut. Poo.

I want to thank Fifi for choosing my home for her magazine and Gridley and Graves for taking wonderful photos. Also I want to thank Mary Forsell for the fun phone interview that lasted two hours and the wonderful story she wrote.

These are just some of the shots in the magazine. It's an eleven page spread. Woot woot!

I truly never thought this day would happen, but it did. Of course it never would have if I hadn't been blogging.

Never give up on your dreams!

You can see the first post and behind the scenes shots about my shoot here.

Thanks so much for being a part of this blog journey with me.

  2. Well, damn! I didn't even recognize it as yours, Kim! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this magazine - bought it last Thursday, but have been so busy with Easter prep that I was too tired to read more than a few pages a t a time each night. I haven't even gotten to YOUR story, or I would've known. A big congratulations to you! FIfi really hit it out of the park this time for all that I have read. How exciting! Bet you're on cloud nine! Enjoy your week.

  6. I bought a copy yesterday as soon as I saw they had a new issue out. Your home is lovely in it. I never get rid of my Country French magazine issues. They have a special box I store them in by season, and I pull them out and look through them each time I need inspiration.

  8. Congratulations, Kim!
    I dashed out on Thursday to get a copy of the magazine. I enjoyed the story, too, of all the hard work you and hubby have put into your home. Everything looked simply beautiful.
    (And it was fun to see the little dining room pillows make the cover of a magazine!) :)

  110. Boy hearing about this brings back so many memories of when Harris Publishing called me back in 2005 for their Country Decorating Ideas magazine. They sent out Anne and Gary (Gridley & Graves) for a two day photo shoot. I had to wait a year and a half before it hit their magazine. What you might not know is that my pictures hit five other magazines...all Harris Publishing. I called the editor and asked about how that could be and she said that when they get the pictures from G & G, they load them into the computer and anyone writing an article that needs pictures can use them for any and all of Harris Publishing magazines. At the time, my backsplash was painted to look like tile turned like diamond shape. There was one of their magazines with a full page of my kitchen along with other pictures that were not my home that all had diamond shapes on floors, bathtubs, etc. You don't get credit for it either. No name attached. They just have free reign to use your pictures how they want after you signed the rights away to them. Just thought you might want to know. Congrats...it is such an uplifting experience isn't it.

I have to say that although I love all of your home, your dining room is my most favorite and I could look at it every day. I just love what you have done there more than I can say!

  116. Kim you have truly reached the "big time" and it couldn't have gone to a better decorator and all around "do it yourselfer". I think you are probably self taught which proved that you don't have to have a degree just vision for the job at hand and the willingness to stick to it until you get the look you want.

    Congratulations! I want to know what Mr. Savvy has to say about it all. He may never roll his eyes again!

    1. Yes, I had to do the cleaning, but I didn't go nuts with it. I knew what things weren't going to show in photos. One of the team did a little styling. Not a whole lot was changed in my shoot.

  142. Congratulations Kim!
    French Country Style is one of my favorite publications! I have always said to myself...when I visit you..."I can't believe that Kim's home hasn't been featured in a magazine, yet!"
    Well...fin...a...lly!
    So well deserved!
    I know you work your buns off to inspire!
    I am sure that editor said..."What are we waiting for?"
    Now every one with a shopping cart gets to see your "SAVVY" !
    withLove.
