Urban Cottage in Cottage Style Magazine

My dining room table

Several months ago, I did an interview with Better Homes & Gardens about my decorating style.  I'm glad it wasn't a live interview because I'm sure I sounded like an idiot...or crazy.


 
The article is in the Fall/Winter 2012 Cottage Style Magazine.
 
 
 
The magazine is a specialty publication that won't be in all stores but  I'm told is available
at Home Depot and other fine stores
but it is also available on-line at the BH&G shop.
 
The article can also be previewed on Zinio.


The article includes some of the same photos from the Cottage Style book along with new
ones that make it seem like a totally different house.
 
It's official.  I think my 15 minutes of fame are about up.

    You definitely have more than just one timespan of "15 minutes" in you.

  10. Those QUILTS! Love them and their stories.

    Your home is so magazine worthy-soak it all in.

    Speaking of your home...what's going on with that modern art/peeling paint bedroom? Hope you are making progress :)

    Will pick up the new mag this weekend when I'm in the big smoke of Bend.
    Congrats again!

  12. You decorating guru, you! How funnynitnis that while you are still deciding about some of your rooms it is already of a standard to be in such a respected deco tome. The parts you don't recognize- did they rearrange things for the shoot. Was it a good experience?

  13. The photos are fab Steve! And i am sure this is just the beginning - after all, you are changing it all around already!

  14. Congratulations! Will you still talk to us now that you're famous?
    The pictures look great.

  18. Congrats Steve. At least I can say I knew you before you were famous. Which means I am one of the few people you can probably trust.

    ;D

    Will look for it next time I am in Home Depot. Which is never. So I will have to make a special effort just for you.

    BTW, I finally got that last book out of the library that your house was in. Cottage Style? Very nice spread but no kitties anywhere and as I looked at it, I wondered if they brought anything in for the shoot besides the photos. I did not recognize all the stuff.

  19. Wow, you've been published! Errr, well, your home has! LOL!!! How wonderful! I can't wait to buy it! I and just thrilled for you!

    Have a great weekend!

  20. The 15 minute bit only applies to ordinary folk. For those with style, talent, vision, energy and generosity--you know, for folks like Steve--there is no limit!

    I had this issue in my hand at the grocery store just the other day but got distracted remembering something that wasn't on my list and put it down. Will go back tomorrow.

  21. Congratulations, Steve!! I'd like an autographed copy :) Will definitely pick up my copy when I get back. The preview photos are fantastic.

  22. Wonderful, exciting, and not surprised either. Glad they recognized good style and got it documented. Not 15 minutes anymore - now you're in the history (of interior design) books.

  23. Congratulations Steve your home is beautiful and this is so well deserved. I have a copy of that magazine just purchased yesterday and now can't wait to look.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  25. Congratulations, Steve, for this well deserved honor. I will look for the mag...won't be easy here in SW Fl where the Enquirer is everywhere, but not much else.

  26. Steve, your humility is part of what has brought you this wonderful recognition - so well deserved! I wish you all the best in whatever is around the corner next for you. :)

  27. Congratulations, Steve! I will look for Cottage Style (we have a bunch of Home Depots in St. Pete), and will savor my own tour through the Urban Cottage!

  28. Congratulations Steve! I bet there are many more features like this to come...

  29. You are so funny Steve! I have a hunch this is just the first few seconds of a much deserved fifteen minutes...time can be relative. ;)

    Lovely, lovely spread...but not a surprise as you are so talented and have such an artistic eye. Congratulations!

    Warmly,
    Tracey

  32. All looks beautiful. GG and I? We're often at the "Depot". I'll pick up an issue and tell them I knew you when.

    I think you're just getting started.

  33. Awesome Steve! I'm going to swing by Home Depot today to check it out. Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is just the beginning. Surely there's a book to follow, 'coffee table' variety, filled with luscious photographs. I would buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Congrats. But 10 bucks for one magazine issue seems rather spendy.

    1. I wouldn't disagree but there are no advertisements in it which, I think, is why it's priced higher.

  36. LOL..I'll have to look it up to take on my trip! Yon my friend...your 15 minutes will never be up! BTW...I've paid more than $10 for a mag... If its a good one, which these speciality BHG mags are...you'll just keep it like a book!

  37. Believe it or not, I found this great issue in Walmart in Stuart, Florida!
    I was so happy to get one because I had been looking for it and there it
    was! I had to buy some craft materials and Walmart is the closest store
    to me. Now I think I understand your home a little better after reading that great story about you and your charming house.
