After five looong months I’m thrilled to announce that my apartment/studio combo has been featured in Rue Mag‘s third issue, which launched this morning!

I am so thankful for the opportunity to share my home in Crystal and Anne‘s wonderful magazine. Not only did Anne inspire me to start blogging seriously back in January, 2009, but Crystal has become a close, dear friend here in Chicago over the past year and a half. As sad as I am to see Crystal transplant to San Fransisco this month, I’m happy to know her dream is rapidly taking shape.  — And that I’ll have a fabulous place to stay the next time I’m in San Fran.

But it wasn’t only Crystal and Anne who did an amazing job on the feature. Emily Anderson was one of the most easy to work with photographers and stylists. We had an instant connection and loved getting to know one another as she shot my home. I definitely cannot recommend her enough for anyone looking for a talented photographer in New York. I’ll share more of her photos of the space later today.

I also need to send a virtual hug to Adrienne Murrill for the excellent perfect article that accompanies the eye candy. Her writing captured what I’m all about, what the business is all about, and what the studio/home is all about. Thank you so much.

And last but not least, Courtney of Courtney Khail Stationary gets a huge shout out for doing an incredible job turning my worry flashcards into a work of art! Download them yourself on page 52 (more on this on Monday).

Okay, enough chit chat… hop on over to Rue Mag to see the entire feature (page 46)!

    How exciting! I love Rue and am so happy to see that they featured you and your beautiful home+studio :).

  3. Crystal @ Rue

    What a dream team: you, Emily, Adrienne, and Courtney! We are SO honored to have you all be part of the new issue. Your home and character are as beautiful as your powerful message!

    Thanks for sharing it with us 🙂


  4. Congratulations on the feature! I had no idea your home was a live/work space – you’ve done a great job keeping the two separate (the wheeled cart with business-related goodies is brilliant).

    Beautiful! Great article & lovely pictures. You must feel amazing! 🙂

  6. Sassy Molassy

    That article is awesome! Your place is so beautiful, open and airy. Just looks inspiring. Is Rue and online only mag? It looks great, but a bit hard to read online (which is why i’m wondering).

    Thank you so much everyone!!! I’m so thrilled to share what I’ve worked on so hard all of these months. Please know that each room took time, effort, and wasn’t over the top budget-wise. In fact, almost everything is done with intention – which is something everyone can do in their home.
