Sneak peek

Carl Pendle very kindly sent me some sample low res jpegs from the shoot for Real Homes today. What amazes me most is that Monday was a really cold, grey and overcast day, with hail in some parts of London, and yet he's managed to make it look as if it was a sunny summer day with the place flooded with light! He's also managed to make the master bedroom look more like an 'after' than a 'before'! The magic of professsional photography...

There are some lovely ones with Anna in that I haven't posted here, and some rather less lovely ones with your truly in that I am definitely not posting - we'll have to wait and see whether any of those make it into the magazine!

The sitting room - complete with that John Lewis rug!

The study

The master bedroom

You must be so chuffed!! It does look like a summer day! Fab, thanks for posting this, we are all very spoiled with all these posts!!

Georgie said...

Yes, if only he could work his magic on the ones of me...!

I am really thrilled with them - even if the magazine decided not to run the feature or something it would still great to have them - they certainly beat the ones I took on my mobile phone!

I think the house looks brilliant Georgise and I would have liked to see it in L etc instead of the pink elephant that is featured this month!

My photo
I'm 39 and married with two children aged seven and four. I'm fatally attracted to house renovation projects, and this is our third in the last seven years, my personal fifth since I bought my first flat in 1996. I think we might have bitten off more than we can chew with the Worst House.

Fame at last!
