ah, there I am

If you fancy a quiet moment amid all the jubilance this weekend, you could sit down with the July issue of Ideal Home magazine, where my house is featured on pages 44 to 49.






It's a while now since that photoshoot took place but I still remember being so tired afterwards that I walked into a door.

  1. Oh your house looks amazing!!-it certainly does look 'ideal'
    My house was featured in Prudence last year and I was so exhausted by making my house magazine pretty, it was more pressure than Nationwide as I lived in a small flat then and there was no hope of making it look nice, I just tried to make it super clean.On both occasions my media beautiful house went back to normal within about 4 days!

  2. Congratulations Mise, what fun that must have been! I'll be in the UK next week so I'll be sure to grab a copy or two, and as I pay the lady at the till, I shall certainly mention - casually, in passing, - that the star of the magazine is a close buddy!
    have a lovely weekend

    1. Thank you, Sharon. I'm watching your blog closely for how best to arrange my books - so important for me to be current with the whole book display area now that I am impossibly famous.

  3. Wow! Your home is beautiful. It's my long-forgotten dream to have my home featured in a magazine ... preferably not "Pet's Weekly".

  4. How thrilling. I am adding a copy to my Ocado order right away.

  5. Ideal Home is not the sort of mag that I would normally look at, never mind buy, but I'm rushing out for a copy now.

    1. Had I known you'd be reading it, Tom, I'd have given my collection of seventeenth century ships' candlesticks greater prominence.

    2. 17th century ship's cushion covers instead?

  6. Perhaps a giveaway is in order for your injured comrades aka the Americans who haven't a hope of getting a copy.

    Or you could just send one directly onto me?

    Your very best friend, Jane

    1. If I weren't in it, my very best friend Jane, I'd send you one straight away, but as it is it would be just too self-regarding of me.

  7. How exciting and fun is this???? I LOVED reading the back story about your 'shoot'. and, as I've only been following for a mere few months - I've hardly seen much of your adorable and beautiful home and didn't realize.... although, I'm thinking that the peek into your yummy linen closet should have been what tipped the hand and given me a clue. Oh, and I hope that you recover, someday, from walking into the door - always so traumatic - I remember the last time I did.... I'd just given birth and didn't know which way was up....

    Happy congratulations! =]

  8. I shall pop into our local Chapters and purchase this imported magazine at a hugely inflated price, just to see your charming home Mise!

  9. Hi Mise

    Congratulations and from what I can see on the pages, very well deserved. I will head over to see if I can find a copy at my local book store.
    Does this mean you now have to sign autographs and wear sunglasses at all times when in public?

  11. Although you are a modest sort, would you please indulge those of us without access to the magazine, and share pictures of all the pages that feature your house? Perhaps you will accept a bribe?

  12. As we say in the USA, "ahhhhhhsome!" Congrats on the print and I'll be scrambling around the newsstand, looking to see if that mag is there! Delighted for you :)

  13. p.s. The plant you asked me about is a salvia. Salvia nemerosa x superba 'May Night'.

  14. I am wobbling out to our newsagents right now (have twisted my knee) I doubt very much I will feel the pain on the way due to the excitement.

    1. You mustn't suffer like that, Susan; couldn't you just add another copy of the magazine to Sue's Ocado order?

  19. Congrats! What fun that your gorgeous home is featured in a magazine. I'll have to zip down to my international newsstand to see if they carry Ideal Home. Wow!

  20. wOHOOO!!!!! Congrats Lady of Style!!! Looks fabulous already- off to get a copy!!! It's nice to see these magazines catching up with the fresh&modern look and homes with a real personality! I'm a bit of a home&interior mag junkie...do you know VT WONEN - a Dutch magazine swoooon! Have piles and piles...:)! Shame Scottish Husband didn't make it though :(!

  21. Congratulations Mise. How exciting! Yes, I'm with Jen. Perhaps some small inducement in return for showing those of us unable to get our wee hands on the magazine all the photos. Please.
    P.S Scottish husband's name is Steve? That's so not what I was imagining!

  22. You are such a delightful young lady. Sincerely. I don't suppose you were serious about the cucumber sandwiches-too many followers to accommodate-but I will make a plate of my own crustless nibbles and raise a glass to your achievement.

  24. What fun any forthcoming gathering of friends will be as I name drop my way through Ideal Home (you) and Country Living (Emma @ Silver Pebble). My only previous claim to fame was a great great grandfather who drove Queen Victoria's train, an honour which demanded the wearing of an exclusive Royal Train drivers very tall top hat (him not me!). Does magazine fame require the donning of any kind of head gear I wonder?

  25. Oh my, will you be much too posh now to talk to us lesser mortals who will never feature in magazines??!!

  30. Very exciting, Mise ! I will have to do with the online version though. I do like what I can see from here of your lovely hair-do !

  31. OH MIse! That looks amazing and my warmest congratulations! Now I really want to get my hands on that magazine but is it only in Ireland? I want to see all of your beautiful cozy house...very unique style you have too! Big hug Z

  32. Where did my comment go?
    Take 2.
    Basically said that walking into door and possibly resembling a panda was worth it for lovely photos. Your house is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congratulations! You are so famous and your house is so pretty I feel shy leaving a comment.

    (I hit my head on the desk yesterday with no photoshoot whatsoever.)

  34. Hello Mise:
    How absolutely thrilling. We shall be telephoning friends in England at once to ensure that we have a copy. In the meantime, we intend to scour booksellers and newsagents here as from tomorrow morning. So exciting!

  35. I went to two shops without success, but now I have it in my hands and have carefully placed it (opened at the correct page) next to the issue of Oh Comely with Alice in it. I only keep the best and most tasteful company.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow Mise so exciting ! Can we look at it online? I have always loved your home - so pink and fresh and bright!!!! Xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  37. How did I miss this! Oooh and aaaaah and I shall get myself a copy straight away.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Finally! So thrilled for you Mise, the little peak looks fantastic, it's the best reason for waking into a door that there ever was...your girls must be besides themselves!!
    I believe it won't just be your 'famous pillow' that will need constant monitoring now...sunglasses for all!!

  40. Just got my copy of Ideal Home and spotted you in it, as I read through it and was loving all the country charm, I noticed your home and thought that looks very familiar and then it clicked with me. Congrats on getting your home featured, it is a beautiful home, full of charm and so homely. I will be taking inspiration...

    All things nice...
