Last night we got home from our suuuuper fun spring break cruise (which I’ll share more about this week!) but I’m popping in quickly to show you the new Refresh magazine we were featured in!

Nearly two years ago, we had the honor of being featured in @betterhomesandgarden’s Stylemaker magazine. I can’t believe it’s been that long already, but time has flown.   Then last month, imagine my surprise when the editor there emailed me to say that they were going to use one of the images from our shoot for the cover of the latest Refresh magazine. It’s our living room as it was then, but with a refreshing twist — those aqua walls got a digital navy makeover, all with the magic of Photoshop. And when we showed Simon’s grandmother, she said “Finally! You took my advice and painted it that dark blue! I knew it’d look beautiful!” ????????????

Here’s what it looked like originally from the shoot.

On newsstands October 4th, Stylemaker magazine is a new publication by Better Homes & Gardens with insightful interviews from various designers, creatives, and bloggers featuring their homes and offices. Pencil Shavings Studio author and designer Rachel Shingleton is featured in a 10 page spread full of her colorful home and inspiration for stylish living.

Pretty amazing, right? Just goes to show the transformative power of paint. Grab a copy of Refresh on newsstands now!


with love,
