As anyone in the design industry will tell you, having your work published is a major key to growth and exposure. It can take a hometown hero, and launch their aesthetic to faraway audiences, and also allows everyone involved in a project to enjoy the finished product in the glossy pages of tangible completion. As a bibliophile-by-way-of-periodicals ( magazine nut ) I devour nearly every interiors magazine on the market, and am always excited to see the lovely work of our friends in the design community.
When I hear that Amanda's work is going to be featured in an upcoming publication, I am excited to the point of obsession. This past Fall I loitered excessively at Whole Foods daily, waiting for the holiday issue of Garden and Gun, as we were generously included in a piece about Fig + Dove's beautiful holiday decor. I have stacks of old magazines with bookmarks hanging out of them marking features and photos, and I never get tired of looking at them.
Imagine my surprise, then, when a feature popped up on Instagram without our even knowing it existed! After seeing some shared images on social media, Amanda and I made a sprint trip to Walgreen's to buy the newest issue of Traditional Home. And it was so very rewarding!
Courtney Giles' inspiring renovation of her own property in Atlanta was stunning from start to finish, but we were especially excited to see two pieces of Amanda's featured in the photos. This was an unexpected treat, and only serves to fuel my quest to purchase, read and save every shelter publication known to man.
I loved the chance to have a peek inside Courtney's personal space, and now I'm visualizing a project where we might see an Amanda Talley nursery complete with art, bedding and wallpaper. Any takers?
