Styling A Mantel

I’m extremely excited about H&H’s latest special issue, finest Decorating, which will be on newsstands only starting March 26th!

My associate Meg Crossley as well as I co-edited this latest mag over the past a number of months as well as we can’t wait to lastly see it in print. We hope you enjoy it, too, as well as think about it a keeper issue. It’s packed with inspiring pictures as well as embellishing how-to tips from fellow editors as well as experts, as well as it’s brimming with product as well as paint suggestions. (Keep your eyes open for this cover shot, a gorgeous story styled by Joel Bray as well as shot by Angus Fergusson!)

Working on the issue, we gathered story concepts as well as motivation from favourite style websites, books, blogs as well as magazines — even our own H&H. It was a trip down memory lane pouring over the back problems of H&H, as well as I had to chuckle every time I saw my living space mantle at house appear in a magazine spread. It can be slim pickins’ for story places as well as every editor has, at some point, ponied up his or her home as a area to set up a picture shoot. For some reason, my living space has had its fair share of coverage. It’s small, however has great light as well as great bones, decent trim work as well as a ageless mantle (surrounding a fireplace that doesn’t work!). There isn’t a great deal of furniture or clutter in the space (save a emotional piano I truly requirement to relocate), to ensure that may be one reason the space is frequently utilized for shoots. Plus, it’s your fundamental white shell from top to bottom as well as makes for a clean canvas for editors’ creativity.

I’ve rounded up many incarnations of my mantle. loyal visitors will most likely acknowledge it from over the years. even our picture editor Leslie Williams understands it well — she’s been blurring out the cracks as well as chips on it for years!
