Kim Kelly, Bella Rustica, and her St. Simons Island, Georgia cottage are in the October issue of This Old House magazine.  To get the entire story, go to her blog.  There are also outtakes and the story of what really happening when your home is photographed for a magazine.

Above is a slipcovered Parson's chair that I made.  The shot below shows what the inside back looks like.

The center picture below is the burlap roman shade I made.  Again, not a great shot (for my work) because of the hanging light that's in front of it.  

 This is a better angle to see what it really looks like.  Burlap is not my favorite fabric to work with, but it turned out pretty well in spite of all the 'issues' that sewing on burlap presents.

And last, but not least, the screened in back porch has a (barely visible, unless you happen to be looking for things you've done in someone's home) chaise that I also slipcovered. This is one of Scout's favorite places to lounge.  

The shot below is what it looks like not shot through a screen.

 I just love when work I've done ends up in a magazine.  I never get tired of it.

I think all of your work are so gorgeous and that must be in the magazine as it should be. I love the slipcover that you made, it's beautiful!
