My Home Featured In Rue Magazine

I am on route to Stockholm, Sweden were I will be spending a couple of weeks (and will occasionally blog from). My husband is sending out this post while I am still up in the air!

It is an honor for me to share with you that today my home is featured in the latest issue of the oh-so-fabulous Rue Magazine. I can hardly believe it myself. Bloggers and magazine founders extraordinaire Anne Sage and Crystal Gentilello felt that my home in Seattle would be something for their readers and asked if I wanted to open my doors for them. I am beyond thrilled. This is the first time a design magazine has featured my home — ever! And what a magazine!

Another fabulous blogger and Rue magazine contributor (and good friend!), MacKenzie Horan, spear headed the text.

Thank you all! It has been such a pleasure working with you and I am so looking forward to meeting you all in person one day soon.

For the article Rue sent over the super talented Seattle-NY photographer Dorothee Brand with Belathee Photography who spent a day at my house and made my home look fantastic from angles I had not even discovered myself! (She is a gem).

Here is a sample of a few images from the photo shoot.

Please, visit HERE to read the full article. (Page +158).

I can’t wait to land in Stockholm and read the article myself. It’s a little surreal (really, my home?!) but what a fun experience! I am very grateful.

Warm hugs to you all.

    Dear Monika,

    I saw your house in Rue and it looks beautiful. If that is how it looks without editing or styling it then I can’t imagine how would it look if that happens. I loved it, let’s talk about the bookshelves-wallpaper? I’m very happy for you. Good to hear you’re with your mom and spending time with her that’s precious time. Enjoy your days in that beautiful land.

    Hugs,

    Hi Monika,

    I am in awe and such a fan of your work and style! Absolutely beautiful. Congratulations. You make it look effortless. I’m making a cup of espresso and going to sit for a minute to catch up on your blog. Wish you could post daily. Thanks for sharing.

    Glad to hear you arrived safely. Best of luck the next 2 weeks.
