We’ve spoken to our October covergirl Jade Maria to find out about her covergirl experience with HomeStyle.
What was it like having your home photographed for HomeStyle?
This was my first ever magazine feature so having HomeStyle round was so exciting and really enjoyable, it was such a fab day.
What was your favourite part of having your home photographed for HomeStyle?
My favourite part was learning some handy new styling tips. Whilst I have some knowledge of magazine styling it isn’t a field I have played a part in yet. I love learning new things so I was really observant to how my home was styled and kept some things how they were styled on the day as I liked them more!
How did you prepare for the shoot?
I prepared by intensely spring cleaning my house and finishing putting paintings and prints up that had been taking me so long to get round to doing! I also had plans to redecorate my bedroom so I made sure this was finished too.
What advice would you give to future HomeStyle cover stars?
Listen to the photographer! I picked up lots of advice about lighting and position etc, which has been helpful when shooting some photos myself for my blog.
