Be a HomeStyle cover star

If you’ve ever fancied yourself as the leading face of a top publication, now could be your chance! We’re on the hunt for the very best home makeovers in the UK to grace the pages of our magazine – so if you think your home fits the bill, we'd love to hear from you. Simply email a picture of yourself in your favourite room to homestyle@burdamagazines.co.uk along with some photos of your home.

We chat to Dec / Jan cover girl Hayley Gribbon to find out about her experience with HomeStyle.

What was it like dressing a table and tree for HomeStyle?

It was so lovely being able to decorate for Christmas! It got me all excited thinking about how I want to do to my own this year, as I am also having a copper theme after renovating our kitchen recently in white and copper. I loved all of the gorgeous pieces on set and have even bought some of the Primark decs I used on the day!

 

What was your favorite part of the day? 

I would have to say all of it! I loved meeting everyone and it was also so nice meeting another fellow Instagrammer in person who was helping to decorate another table on set. We talked all about our interior design passion!

How did you prepare for the shoot? 

I had a flick through all of my HomeStyle magazines and looked at the new HomeStyle Christmas special for inspiration.

 

Did you learn anything from the photographer or team?

Not to be so nervous! I hate having my photo taken and am very critical of myself but they were so lovely and helped me feel at ease on the day. I would love to be on set all the time helping them out.

What advice would you give to future HomeStyle cover stars?

I would say just be yourself and enjoy it. I loved every single minute of the day. It was such a dream come true doing what I enjoy the most.
