so I think it was wednesday morning when i began my day with an email from houzz stating they had used one of my portfolio pictures in a feature article. this was very exciting and i couldn't wait to see which picture it was as the article is about preparing your house for a party! i like a good party, so now i'm even more curious to see what it was that i did to get party ready, without remembering actually throwing a party!!
here's the link, in case you missed it...
and here's the picture...
of course i love this shot! the curtains were one of the initial inspirations for the space. the rug is from re:loom (a beautiful organization with a mission to help people move out of homelessness); the buddha brings serenity to the cooking experience (much needed around these parts ;); the art is from cuba; splurge pot from staub in my favorite blue hue!; and lemonade that had the neighborhood folks lining up down the street. (not really but my kids drank it for weeks after the shoot)
i am so honored that a photo was used in an article, but what's even more impressive is the tremendous impact it's being in the article has made on the number of people "saving" this photo to their own idea books. it went from 259 the night before the article posted to 678 after 24 hours to 1k+ in 2 days!!!! this is mind blowing to me. ok, i know the power of the internet, but to see the true reach one can have is kinda incredible!! thank you houzz 1k+ times!!
