i was asked if i'd like to photograph my home for a magazine last week, while i was away. obviously i accepted the huge honour with open arms, which were filled with doughnuts, gin and slinkies at the time, so i dropped them. my friends came round and were my slaves for the day, as they helped style and even sew things in an attempt to make my place look habitable. it took me 8 hours non stop to photograph. i have a new found respect for glossy mag photographers and stylists and will now cackle everytime i see an 'open house tour' in a magazine, as i have more of an incling into what goes into it (including borrowing things and stealing flowers and such). i'm so excited - it really is a girly dream come true to have your house featured in a magazine. it's still a secret which magazine casa beatnik might be in, but i'll whisper it to you as soon as i'm able.
