For those of you who follow me on Instagram, yesterday I posted a photo and said that I had bumped into myself at Harris Teeter. Here is the cover of the new special edition issue of Southern Living Magazine with our kitchen on the cover. I was completely surprised. As I stood in the checkout line and opened the magazine, staring back at me was me. I was already blown away enough to see my kitchen in the checkout line, and then there I was. Whoa. Needless to say I believe the woman at Harris Teeter asked me if I wanted paper or plastic several times before I snapped back to reality. This new issue contains a couple of photos that weren’t included in the March Issue of the magazine, including our dining room, and the master bedroom. Even though the flag looks historic, its not. Mr. B found it on the beach at Pawley’s Island after Hurricane Hugo. In the master bedroom, I got the Narrow Leg End Table from West Elm, but I didn’t love the handles. So I replaced the handles with Grafton Clear Glass Pulls from Restoration Hardware. People always ask me about the headboard fabric, it is John Robshaw. The artwork on the bed wall is by Charleston based artist Megan Aline, and the piece on the left hand side is by Connecticut based artist Dani Renchard.
