We’ve spoken to our August covergirl Lucy Barry to find out about her covergirl experience with HomeStyle.

 

What was it like having your home photographed for HomeStyle?
 
 
Incredibly exciting! I’ve always loved reading interiors magazines so it was amazing to be featured.
 
 
 
 
What was your favourite part of having your home photographed for HomeStyle? 
 
 

Seeing my home captured at it’s absolute best. It was thrilling to see the shots coming up on our photographer Katie’s laptop as she worked, and think ‘Wow, that’s our kitchen!’
 
 
How did you prepare for the shoot? 
 
 
Making sure everything was in it’s right place, and all of my favourite things were on show. I also stocked up on flowers to fill all of our vases and add some extra pops of colour!
 
 
 
Did you learn anything from the photographer? 
 
 
It was fascinating watching Katie work, and seeing the angles she used to best capture the light and fit in all of the details of a room. She gave me lots of photography tips, and we talked about how as a beginner the most important thing is to think about the lines in a photo and making sure everything is straight and lined up.
 
 
 
 
What advice would you give to future HomeStyle cover stars? 
 
Enjoy the experience, as it’s not every day a talented photographer comes to photograph your home. It was definitely a little surreal, and I feel very lucky!
