Suddenly realised as I sit on my bag, on the floor of the train that’s so kindly transporting me back home in style, that now would perhaps be a good time to fill you in on yesterday and today’s activities. Because let’s be honest, I really have nothing else to do.
Well, my very brief moment in the limelight wasn’t too bad…stupidly nervous beforehand though, and seemed to lose my ability to stand, move and smile normally! But apart from that. Luckily the shot has worked out really well, shows off our fresh aqua/green kitchen & bathroom colours perfectly. Not that I’m at all biased because of all the scrummy cakes that were used, and almost inhaled by all the team as soon as Penny was finished shooting! Mmmmm.
The possible front cover shot was also finished today. So excited and really hope we’ll use it. It features one of my favourite colours from Fashion for Walls (Summer Pudding) and is just, well, fun. And putting my little marketing assistant head on, will definitely have the wow factor in store.
This morning then brought the penultimate day of the shoot, there seemed loads still to do! But of course, everything went smoothly. Two completely different themed rooms; one dark & intense bedroom with Indian influences, the other a fun, 70’s retro inspired living room with a cool Eames rocking chair thrown in the mix. When I say ‘thrown’, I mean carefully placed and propped to within millimetres…but you get my drift.
And here I am, still on my bag, and still on my train. So what am I thinking? Well for one thing, I’m definitely not a fan of being photographed for national distribution! (note to self for next year.) I like colourful cakes and lots of tea, and could really do with one right now. But I guess what I’m really thinking is how amazing all the photographs look and how I cannot wait to see them all printed in next year’s colour guide, it will look truly fab. I’ll have my autograph pen at the ready! Not.
