At the beginning of February I got an email notification from Twitter. Someone had tagged me in a tweet noting that they loved the blogger projects in the new TOH magazine! I didn’t even know it was out! About a week later Reagan finally remembered to pick up a copy at the store!
I’m not going to lie, my blog posts that outline the banquette don’t hold all of the details. It was a touch and go project while I was pregnant and still working basically 3 jobs. I’ve already received a few specific questions. The magazine touches on a few of the details and I will try to add a few more here.
Here are the dimensions of the space:
The long side of the banquette is 98 inches and the shorter side is 48 inches. The height of the bench is 20 inches and the depth is about 16 inches. Also, I used a two inch piece of foam for the bench cushion. Here are the four posts that follow our process:
And a source list:
I’ve had a few people ask about the paint color of our walls. Unfortunately I don’t know what it is. This is the color it was painted when we moved in and we haven’t had to paint match it yet. The color of the banquette is Polar Bear by Behr. Let me know if you have any other questions! I will answer in the comments and try to add anything that is important to this post as well so it is all in one spot.
This was such a fun experience for me and I am so intrigued by the whole process. Do you remember how the photographers and stylist came out for a whole day to shoot my entryway, the banquette, and another product photo? You can read a bit about it here – Magazine Shoot. Well after all of that work, only one photo made it into the magazine!! And what I think is funny is that it is VERY similar to the photo that I took originally! In terms of styling at least. I’m sure the quality of the photo is better since they used off camera flash. I guess now that I think about it, I’m not sure if the product shot made the magazine because it could be in another issue but I don’t think any of the entryway have been featured. They spent most of the morning styling and shooting the entryway (a good 2-3 hours maybe)! I took some photos of the entryway last week so I’ll share some updated pictures with you!
