When the lovely Meg Mateo Ilasco, Creative Director of Anthology Magazine approached me about photographing the Jungalow, I’m pretty sure my heart visibly jumped a little bit out of my chest. Anthology is one of my very favorite print magazines and the aesthetic, voice and feel is right up my handmade/thrifty/worldly ally. Issue number 6 debuted last week it was SO much fun to see and read the article (written by editor in chief Anh-Minh Le – who is really f-cking cool BTW) about our little crazy abode. (Not to mention all of the other great home features, DIY projects, adorable graphics etc…)
When Teri Lyn Fisher (photographer) and Britni Wood (stylist) came over one sunny morning this past fall to shoot the Jungalow, I really wasn’t too sure what to expect. I am so used to doing everything on my own–from styling to picture taking etc. that it was at once frightening and exhilarating to have other (albeit super-talented) folks capture my home in the way that they saw it.
Ultimately, everything about the piece–from the written word, to the photos and the styling–does an amazingly good job of telling my story. I am so happy, grateful and honored to be a part of this publication. If you aren’t familiar with Anthology Magazine, check out their site, and then pick or a subscription or snag a copy at West Elm or Anthropologie.
