Introducing San Diego Magazine

Exciting news! You can now find me each month in my local San Diego Magazine sharing favorite trends for decorating, entertaining and organizing. I was thrilled to be asked to contribute as a guest writer for their At Home section after the magazine found me through this blog.

Guess what the first issue up was? The SEX issue. (I had to highlight the word as you would have loved seeing me 9 months pregnant, feet so swollen I had trouble squeezing into my own shoes, with a quart of ice cream in one hand and “Baby Whisperer” in the other as I bounced romantic bedroom inspiration ideas off of Kevin in preparation for the February issue). Kevin was laughing at the horrible irony of my current bloated, big belly state the entire time. It was quite unromantic.

I decided to take my two pages in two different directions – one inspiration board would feature a feminine, shabby chic take on a romantic Valentine’s Day bedroom. Here was my initial board:

And here’s what was printed:

The second page would highlight a more masculine, contemporary ‘sexy & sultry’ bedroom. First, my inspiration board:

(That’s a heated towel rack down there in the right hand corner – how perfect to step out of a warm bubble bath and into heated towels! Note to self: add to our future master bathroom makeover.)

And what was published:

I’ve had so much fun putting these trends pieces together! March will be much more PG and April screams Spring.

I’ve subscribed to San Diego Magazine for almost as long as we’ve lived in this beautiful city and it’s truly a fun, engaging publication that highlights serious city issues, features regular investigative journalism as well as plays up the best restaurants and ‘what to do’ in the city. It’s a neat experience to be a part of the publication.

Check out the full digital magazine version here, but consider yourself warned that it really is the sex issue.

    What exciting news! I love both the inspiration boards, and it’s interesting to see how they changed from what you put together vs. what was printed.

    Oh, how exciting- being a regular contributor in the magazine, not the sex- um, well, you know what I mean…. Congratulations! :)

      Thank you! It was an awkward first issue to write… but it’s a neat project to work on each month! I loved how the inspiration boards turned out – I’d love to have either of those bedrooms! (sigh)
