Country Living Christmas


Image from Worldmags.net

Country Living's December/January 2012 issue is out! We'd been waiting for our copy to arrive when Mike found the issue online, with our living room on the cover. When he showed me, I said, "How did you do that? Did you make that on your computer?" It turns out Country Living did two different covers that are in circulation for this issue, with the other version being a 
decorated Christmas tree. 

Here are a couple of photos I took during the shoot. I had a baby in my arms most of the time, so I don't actually have very many photos to share. 


Lili sent these gorgeous white amaryllis from New York.  I really loved the gracefulness of the amaryllis and will soon start forcing some bulbs for the holidays. 


Here are Lili and Mike setting up the tree before she and I trimmed it.   

We had our first snowfall this week so things are already beginning to feel very Christmas-like here. I'm looking forward to decorating early this year as I cannot wait to share twinkling lights, the fragrance of the tree, our favorite holiday music and general festive holiday giddiness 
with Graham and Margaret. 

We are very excited.

How fun! I just picked up my mail today. I've been subscribing to your blog since you announced your pregnancy, even though I haven't commented since that big announcement. I look forward to reading my magazine. Have a very sweet Christmas with your babies.

rkbsnana said...

I have that very issue on my coffee table now.
Wow, who knew I would write a comment to a real
"celebrity". Congratulations. It's lovely.

Hazel said...

You must be so excited! Your living room looks delightful as always.

I received my issue last Tues & have been patiently waiting to see if you were going to talk about it! I was flippin' out.. "OMG, this is Trina's house on the cover!!" (Of course my husband had no idea who I was talking about.) I loved the article & all the photos were just beautiful. In all honesty, I hadn't even had a Country Living subscription but when you blogged about being in the Dec issue, I made sure to sign up ASAP-- couldn't miss the oppotunity of having magazine photos of one of my favorite homes!

-Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!-

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Funny our homes are both on a Christmas issue!
Mine is on "Vivere Country" (which means exactly Country Living) and it is such a wonderful emotion!
And another funny thing: the photographers of the magazine were here two months ago and I wondered around with my baby in my arms just as you!!

Saila said...

Wow, so exciting to have your room on a magazine cover! That mag, I think, is sold in some bigger bookshops in Finland too - I must keep an eye on the magazine shelves now.
You have a very, very stylish and cosy (at the same time!) house and a warm style to write.
Greetings from Finland

Trina, congratulations on being featured on the cover. How thrilling! I haven't received my copy yet in the mail, but I did see the magazine yesterday at the grocery and I thought, "What a pretty cover!" I had no idea that it was YOUR living room! I can't wait to get it in the mail so I can read the article.

I know this Christmas will be a very special one for you and Mike, sharing all the traditions of the beautiful season with your twins. Enjoy it all and have a lovely Thanksgiving too!

Lynne said...

Your home . . . your story of the before "sweet peas" and the after is one I look toward to seeing and reading each time I see A Country Farmhouse on my screen.

I look forward to holding County Living in my hands and viewing your "Christmas In July" photo shoot.

You, Mike, Graham and Margaret remind me each time I visit of authentic, grace
and truth. You are such a favorite of mine . . .

Thank you for sharing . . .

Petra said...

I was so excited to get the magazine this weekend - the one WITH your living room on the cover : ) Instantly recognizable, except the mirror is missing! I always love looking at your photos online, but there is something extra special about seeing your home in print. Congratulations Burke family! Enjoy all your blessings this Thanksgiving and Christmas, especially the beautiful babies.

Susan said...

I'm a fairly new follower, but I was excited when I picked up my Country Living issue last week (my cover is the same one as in your post), and it was fun to read an article about someone from the blogging world that I'd heard of! - I've become followers of blogs after they've been featured in a magazine, but you're the first I was following *before* the magazine :)

I hope you have a lovely Christmas with your sweet family!

Antiqueaholics said...

I read the wonderful article in Country Living. How exciting to have your home featured on the cover. Everything looked so clean and crisp - just beautiful

You have every right to be very excited! What a wonderful Christmas this will be for all of you. You will be making memories for a lifetime. I hope you bring us along for the ride.
The magazine spread is magical. I am only seeing one cover around here, your living room. My favorite cover indeed!
Let the season begin!

becka1954 said...

I enjoy your blog as I also live in an old farmhouse that has belonged in my family for a long time. It was so ironic when I saw the table on the cover issue of Country Living because just this weekend I had an interesting experience. My Aunt's family (on my mother's side) was preparing for an Estate Auction. They discovered in a table identical to that one the name of my grandfather (on my father's side) neatly nail-tapped inside the drawer. They were wondering how she had the table when it belonged to someone outside the family. I knew I had to have it because it belonged to my grandfather. I was able to bid for the table and now it is back "home" again.

Barb said...

I love the article! I was reading it when I realized it was your house. I told my husband and said it was my blogging friend's house. He laughed at me! It is wonderful.

Happy Holidays to you and family!

I was SO excited to have my Country Living Magazine arrive. As soon as I saw it I started shouting to my husband, "Babe! This is that blog I've been following for years!! This is their house!"

Congratulations!!

I received my copy of Country Living on Friday and as I was flipping through the articles I told my husband, "I know this blogger!" How wonderful that your blog brought about you being featured in a magazine, and Country Living at that. I enjoy your blog so, and of course, the photos of the sweet babies. Have a great holiday season!

Jackie & Gaby's Mommy said...

As one of your faithful readers I was tickled pink yesterday to see your living room on the cover of Country Living! I have shared your musings with my husband and we've truly been inspired to keep focused on our "country hearts". What a joy it was to sit and read your article with my 8 year old daughter Jackie last night. She said it best, "Mommy, that's where I want to live when I grow up." Me too kiddo!

congrats! Your home is so beautiful, I'm sure the issue will be amazing!

Ami at A Sierra Home said...

Congratulations! I check for this issue every time I go the store and haven't found it yet! And I so hope my area is the one that gets your cover, which was soooo deserved. Your home is the most beautiful country home I've ever seen and should have made a magazine long ago. :)

Your family was made to be in a magazine. What a lovely story of your twins and your home. I really enjoyed reading it and feeling like I "knew" someone famous. Congrats!

Trina,
After an exhausting day running around, I arrived home to a stack of mail, looked at the cover of CL and thought could it be ACF??? And, wouldn't you know I flipped right to your kitchen, which I recognized immediately!

I just loved seeing your beautiful house in print, CL really knows how to do it with their great big photos!

You know how much I love your house and style, so this was a thrill for me too. A big congrats to you and Mike.
xo,

Deb W said...

I got my issue a few days ago, and honestly, I like the photos on your blog better than the ones in the feature. For some reason, photos of all-white rooms in this magazine (and some others) always look a bit overexposed! But, WE know how beautiful your home is!

Susy said...

I don't get the magazine, so thank you for the post, and the link to the July post. Fun to see!

Olde Whitby Cottage said...

My copy just arrived on Friday. Your living room is absolutely gorgeous!

debbie bailey said...

How exciting to see your house on the front of Country Living! Our house plans were that magazine's house of the year in 1988, so I've always meant to send it in to see if they'd be interested in including it in the magazine. I'm gonna do that one of these days!

Susan said...

I have the issue with your living room on the front and I love it. Best issue of Country Living in years! Your house is breathtaking. Thank you for sharing it.

When a new magazine turns up in the mail, I save it for my "bedtime story," often not even looking at the cover because I want it all to be a surprise just as I did yesterday. Imagine my delight to find your home and then I was reminded of reading all about the shoot on your blog. Congratulations. The photographs and story are lovely.
Thank you Trina for inviting us into your home and introducing us to your family via your warm commentary in your blog and this special article.
It's always a pleasure.
Happy Thanksgiving,

Dare I ask about little Lucy. I haven't seen her lately nor was she mentioned in Country Living. Is she well? Have I missed news of her?

hibnerfamily.com said...

I have always dreamed of having a gorgeous farmhouse and yours is exactly as I envisioned. Growing up on a farm, I always see myself going back to that lifestyle. I love all the white, the beautiful accents, and the VIEW.! We are building a home again for the second time in 2 years ( our forever home) in a place I've always wanted to be but after seeing your home, I can't help but wonder if we should have gone for the farm house like we considered.

24 Corners said...

Oh Trina, I'm so happy for you!! I was actually looking for the magazine in the store the other day, but it hadn't come out yet (I have a subscription but was impatient to see it!), and to see it here now, with your beautiful living room on the cover, well, it gave me goosebumps, it's just a dream come true! I'm in Cal. at the moment but I bet my copy will be there when I get home...I can't wait to see it.
To reach this moment after all of yours and Mike's hard work, all of the 'of courses', and all of the love, sweat, and tears that went into creating your treasured home is such a blessing...and so greatly deserved!
Big congratulatory hugs and much love...

Mahala said...

Your house is absolutely the most fabulous I have seen in many. many years. You are living a dream of mine - to find and bring an old farmhouse to life with grace and beauty while making it 21st century functional. You are amazingly talented. What a wonderful place to raise your beautiful babies. Love your blog. It's a visual feast and it delights my eye every time I visit.

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Funny story, my husband put the copy next to my nightstand and said that fireplace looks like ours (except we don't have as much woodwork). Then as I was flipping through it to find the article I came across the kitchen and said hmmm why does that kitchen look familiar, so I went to the beginning of the story! I told my hubby this is Trina's blog! Love the article!
