Pale and interesting.

Is the title of our latest work in the beautifully printed July 2015 issue of Country Homes & Interiors magazine…
Pages 48 to 54 in the July 2015 issue of Country Homes & Interiors magazine featuring Marie & Alan (McMillen) McKernan's renovated 1960's home near Holywood in County Down.
.. on pages 48 to 54 – featuring Marie and Alan’s renovated 1960’s home near Holywood in County Down.

“Marie McKernan gave her mid-century home a fresh new look with weatherboarding and a crisp blue-and-white palette.”

Which we talked about shooting at the time here: Natural direction of light and here: Left or Right.

Anyway, Marie received her advance copy last week, and this is what she wrote:

Well – my advance copy arrived – and I LOVE it 🙂

We’re the fourth home but that’s ok – they will always lead with the more beachy ones in their coastal issue.

You will be surprised with a couple of the big shots I reckon 🙂

Full page for exterior !!! Wasn’t expecting that !!!

Full page for sitting room – cropped a little

Full page for dining area

Lovely 4 page collage of bath, hooks, guest bedroom and balcony

Full page of guess who – standing on the flippin balcony – though they did use a wee one of muggins on the rocks 🙂

7 pages…

As Lesley would say, I could cry 🙂

Well not quite – but I am soooooo chuffed with this one 🙂

Thank you

So clearly someone was very happy – which just leave me to say a big thank you to Mrs pale and interesting here…

.. for putting up with me all these years, as this was shot around the time I was in tears too – so it’s lovely to finally see all your hard work in print… and printed beautifully too in your favorite magazine smile

So thank you from me.

  1. These are beautiful interiors, and especially appropriate for country homes I think. In older properties with less natural light, white bright walls often help to open out the space more. Beautiful homes and interiors
