For this post I'm going to direct you to these posts by fellow Richmond bloggers, John and Sherry at This Young House, who I mentioned before here.
Their beautiful home was just photographed for use in Better Homes & Gardens' Do It Yourself magazine and they supplied the behind-the-scenes details used in styling their home for the two-day photo shoot. Very interesting stuff.
My favorite were these two pictures. Note the relationship of the coffee table to the sofa to the window in the first pic. It seems that sometimes to get the right look in one picture, the furniture isn't actually where you would think it would be in real life.
Very good to know. So, the next time you use those floor diagrams and photos in Domino to set up your apartment, don't panic when it doesn't work out. It probably didn't work out in real life either.
John and Sherry, thanks for sharing your lovely home!
