We were so excited to have the opportunity to travel to London with Style at Home editor Erin McLaughlin to shoot Debbie Travisfor the magazine! I remember Debbie from her original TV show The Painted House so it was pretty fun to show up at her London townhouse and her greet us with her sparkly smile. Of course since The Painted House, Debbie has gone on to do many amazing things from more television shows, producing, creating her own licensed products for various companies and winning lots of awards. She is now restoring a property in Tuscany and even holds a girl’s getaway.
We spent two wonderful days with Debbie, one photographing her delightful townhouse and one exploring the inspiring design stores about London. Debbie was kind enough to shuttle us around the windy London streets in her car. She knows the neighbourhoods like a pro – I was glad I wasn’t driving!
I was wowed by the Designer’s Guild – so many beautiful patterns and colours, gorgeous furniture and accessories everywhere you look! What a treat to be there with Debbie and Erin both. . . After a lovely lunch and a trip to Portobello Road it was a wrap. Just one more thing to do – get a photo with Debbie for my mum!
And off Erin and I went to get some Pimm’s (more about that tomorrow). Read more about Debbie’s London here.
