Now onto my treat, I had the pleasure of shooting again for Twin Farms twinfarms.com in Barnard, Vermont with the fabulously talented photographer Jim Westphalen jimwestphalen.com and his team of amazing shooters, Bill and Lenny. We covered many of the spaces there and had the pleasure of shooting Katie Ridder's katieridder.com new spaces in Hillside and Grotto. I can't show everything at this point but I'll give you a glimpse of what she did...BRILLIANT.
And now onto my Sneak Peek. I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with a client in a neighboring town . This client called me after she saw my article in Yankee Magazine www.kellymcguillhome.com about my home. She thought it was serendipitous that she loved and connected to my style and we basically lived five minutes from each other. My client and her husband in their early seventies (yup 70's) have decided to change things up a bit. Out goes the wallpaper in every room, out goes the mantle and fireplace that they never liked, out goes the colored rugs. There will be new paint for the oak kitchen cabinets, a new mantle, new crown molding , new window treatments and new furnishing. I've been so lucky to work with them on this project and so lucky to have the dream team on this project. Ritchie Burns of R &B concepts is the GC and master carpenter. Ray Heatley of Clover painting is the master painter , Jim Matta of Lauren Michaels is my go-to window treatment creator...Yeah. I'll be sending images as we go along but here are a few for starters. .

And last but not least. I did this cute crafty idea for Yankee magazine years ago, it would make a great Mother's Day gift. SO easy to do and so affordable. Apothecary jar , chalk board paint ,bird seed and chalk .
