"Major Milestone"

To say that today was a BIG day in the life of Dwell by Cheryl Interiors would be a gross understatement, but I’ll say it anyway.  Today was a BIG day! 

When I began this journey nearly four and a half years ago, I never really imagined that it could become what it has so quickly.  I got a glimpse however, after being contacted several years ago by a magazine that was interested in featuring my master bedroom in an upcoming issue.  Imagine my excitement.  I told almost everyone I knew.  I submitted the photos and answered a few questions and waited patiently…..until the magazine was released and..... I wasn’t included in it.  You can read about my devastation HERE.   You know, they say hindsight is 20/20 and they’re right.  Now I know that the disappointment I experienced was just a prelude to what was to come. 
 
 
Today I walked in a Books a Million, made a bee line for the magazines and found an issue of Southern Home that featured my home in it!  I still have to pinch myself to believe it. My home is included with the work of design greats like Jan Showers.  Seriously? 

 
 

I’ve been dying to tell you guys all about it, ever since late April when the photographer showed up at my house.  Yeah, remember that whole 4-week master bedroom project? It was for this!  (Funny enough it's the one space that wasn't included. Go figure!)
 
 
Needless to say, I may have staged a photo shoot in the magazine section at the store.
 


Yeah, you can say I was a bit excited.  Thankfully a stranger came along and agreed to take photos for me.  As luck God would have it, she actually needed a home stager to help sell her home and asked for my card and has already connected with me.  An impromptu photographer and a potential client? Seriously?! 

The article is entitled Opulence in Reach and I couldn't have written it better myself. There's a six page spread and I have to admit, it's surreal reading about yourself in a shelter magazine and seeing each and every thrifted find you've acquired highlighted in the BEST light.  I still can't believe it.  I've literally been carrying about an issue for a week and a half now. 

 
This is a major milestone in the life of my business and I can't even imagine what else God has in store but I'm pretty sure the best is yet to come....
