131 Cottage Style Magazine, and a Giveaway

We are very excited to have our home featured in the pages of the current Fall/Winter issue of Cottage Style magazine…

CottageStyle1

And sweet little Chloe was also excited to see she made it in the issue as well…

CottageStyle2

It’s always interesting when you have a stylist come in for a shoot. They'll often bring in colors and props and flower arrangements you may not have envisioned for your home, but somehow it just works…

CottageStyle4CottageStyle3

And sometimes they’ll even move furniture around. It’s all about how the camera see’s the space, and nothing to do with the practicalities of foot traffic flow…

CottageStyle5

I don’t think I’ll ever tire of looking at my dining room. However, I’ve decided it’s time to sell our vintage black dining chairs ($125 for all 4). If you’re interested, leave me a note in the comments below.

CottageStyle6

I don’t change things up too much in our kitchen, so I tend to re-style our bakery wall quite often, just to keep it fresh and interesting…

CottageStyle7 

The suitcase nightstands in our master bedroom is probably one of my favorite vignettes…

CottageStyle8

This issue is currently for sale on newsstands now, with a $9.95 cover price. However, I have two extra copies in my hot little hands, and I’m looking to give them away to two lucky readers!

::: To enter this giveaway :::

1. Simply leave a comment on this post.

2. For extra credit, fill in the blank:
“The next person to ring my doorbell had better ____________.”

Two names will be chosen in a random drawing.

Giveaway ends on November 30th.
