  7. I live in Fresno,CA and we have lots and lots of SE Asian food. Love Pho. We just found a new place right around the corner from us called Pho Paradise and it really is!!

    1. Oh so jealous!!! I’d eat it any time of the day. You could wake me in the middle of the night and I’d eat it πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you! I feel like I look crazed. It was kinda crazy for sure.

  8. I love seeing all the behind the scenes photos from of your house!! I know you must have been so excited / nervous and had a blast all at the same time!! Can’t wait to read the article and see all the stunning pics!

    1. You know how much fun it is because of your own amazing feature. Thank you!

  9. Your home is beautiful. The pictures are stunning. Do you get to keep the props and items they used to “stage”? I hope that you do. I love that colorful painting to the left of the mantel. Can’t wait to see the reveal in the magazine!

    1. Thanks Sherri, I painted the painting. I unfortunately didn’t get to use all the props but they didn’t use all that much different stuff. It was mostly my own.

  10. So much fun! I loved seeing how many props and flowers they brought into your home. Can’t wait to see what made the final cut! πŸ™‚

    1. I wish I could have kept all the props, but we used most of my stuff.

  17. So exciting and so very deserving! Your home looks beautiful and I can’t wait to see it in print. I can say, “I know Her!!” πŸ™‚

  18. Oh my gosh I cannot wait! I didn’t think I could love your house more! It is absolutely gorgeous in these sneak peeks!

    1. Thanks Amber, I actually thought it looked like a mess in the photos πŸ˜‰

    1. They totally are! They have really cool jobs

  19. A year?! I can’t wait to see it, can’t believe it’s that long! My biggest head-smacking moment after the BHG shoot was that I didn’t feed the people who came to my house anything. I was so distracted and overwhelmed I never thought to get food. They were given only water, it was like being in prison. So stupid of me! But back to this…everything looks seriously, seriously gorgeous πŸ™‚

    1. LOL, well we all agreed on the food thing and chipped in. I wasn’t like amazing Katja who cooked a great healthy spread for them and had an amazing table setting in the back yard. Ain’t nobody have time for that. But Katja is good at everything so no surprise here πŸ˜‰

  20. Julia, I’m so sorry I missed this!! Sometimes I have trouble with blogs updating on my blogroll??? So, so excited for you! Your home looks gorgeous, and you’re perfect for DIY magazine!

    1. Oh gosh Pam don’t be sorry. I have a huge problem with bloglovin right now. Nothing ever shows as read anymore. But that’s not my only problem. This moved blog of mine is killing me and nothing is working right. Don’t know what I was thinking when I decided to move it before Christmas. So many hours wasted trying to fix nonsense.

  21. Your home is gorgeous! What a dream come true to be featured in a magazine!

    I LOVE PHO and am also an addict! Do you make it yourself? I am lucky to have a great restaurant down the street from my office.

  22. WOw…your home is beautiful, which I actually knew already:-) Can’t wait to see it on prints, so happy for ya!Hugs

  23. I love seeing behind the scene pictures. Looks like it was a lot of fun. Julia, your home looks amazing and I can’t wait to see it in print!

    1. Thanks Darnetha, it was a total blast

  24. OH how exciting Julia, congrats on the coming magazine feature. I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it’s out. Make sure to let us know!

    1. Thanks Bettina, it will be so hard to wait for a year until it comes out.

    What in the world took them so long to recognize you?

  26. Thanks Kristin, can you believe she asked me last week to paint the walls black now? I really don’t know what goes on in her mind sometimes.
