My Imaginary Magazine Cover- Southern Living

Ever since I came up with this imaginary magazine cover for British Vogue, I’ve been playing with other fun designs. Here’s the latest one for ‘Southern Living.’

Our historical home rejected my notions of bright primaries as harsh. Other colors I considered would be washed out by the intensity and amount of sunlight here. So, Scott and I ended up painting the dining /library/guest room a wonderful shade of blue-green which keeps its cool even on a hot day. Accents of black in the Windsor chairs, floor lamp and fireplace screen help things stay grounded.

It’s A Miniature Life

This is what I chase.” – Emily Boutard, one time lawyer, now a full time architecture student and creator of ‘little architecture.’
