Feeling like I'd fallen into a magazine shoot...



A few weeks ago I went to a friend's hen weekend, and we stayed at a cottage near Oxford that she'd rented for the weekend. Because I figured there was likely to be a fair amount of alcohol consumed (there was), and also because we were going punting one day, I took my old (waterproof) camera rather than the 'proper' one.

Nevertheless, when I decided to take some photos of the cottage I found myself feeling like I was doing a shoot for some kind of fancy Home & Garden magazine, the whole place was so beautifully laid out. I really wished I'd had the dSLR to do it justice.

I don't think I'd want to be a photographer for an interior design magazine - but it was fun to feel like one, even for ten minutes.

That's some swanky cottage - hope you enjoyed the weekend and bought loads and loads to eat from the covered market.

This is your friend's house? Fantastic! It's so nicely put together.
I adore the red quilt too! You could sell them to a Home Decorating magazine.

I wonder what somebody charges to do over bedrooms or rooms or whole houses to look like these. Nice photos.
