Country Living Magazine


The February issue of Country Living is out, which includes the feature on our guest house renovation (click 'Country Living' above to see the story). The feature shows before and after pictures of the interior, and tells some of the story behind the renovation. 

I'll take more pictures of the guest house this week, and provide some more details to describe what we did in the kitchen, the process of deciding on windows, and of course, the electric fireplace that Mike built, etc.

There's also the exterior...lots to talk about!

 Heather Bullard's post on the photo shoot!

Oh Trina, the story is great! I just love the photos and loved the changes you and Mike made. So happy to see the same wood and white aesthetic that I so love in the main house, you family and friends are so fortunate to have this sweet and peaceful place to retreat to - beautiful job!!

I'm so glad that I didn't take mine to my office to leave in the lobby! I sometimes do that if/when I get too busy to read them. I'm going right now to read it!! I loved your Christmas pictures if your babies in front of the Cheistmas tree. You are a talented photographer!!

I can't wait to see your post! I got my issue couple of weeks ago and was so excited to receive it. When I saw the Country Living cover at the beginning of your post, I thought this was was the 'behind the scenes' post like the one you did for the Christmas issue. What a teaser! I'll just have to (try to!) wait patiently for your full post. :) Take care.

Love your posts. Congrats on being in the country Living magazine. I am going to run to the store to pick up a copy. We too are renovating an old 158 year old flour mill into our home. We have just completed renovations on an old railroad depot which we are living in until the mill is complete. I would love to have you visit my blog . Can keep updated on our progress with the mill and my style of decorating.

How exciting! The minute I got the magazine I dug through it looking for the article before I even got it home. So happy for you. The guest house looks lovely. I adore that settee. So beautiful. All your touches, totally dreamy, and Mike's handiwork was lovely. Congrats guys!
Love it.

I grabbed the issue as soon as it came out because I remembered that it would be in. The space is as lovely as your main home and I think I may actually like it better because it is compact. Looking forward to seeing more on it.

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh I have that issue right beside me. I didn't realize that is your guest house in it though. It is really beautifully done. Congratulations on the publishing of your guest house!

Dianne said...

You were the reason I bought this copy!! I cannot wait to hear your added stories. It is amazing!
