Heather Chadduck worked for that magazine. From what I gathered she was a single gal who DIY'd a rundown cottage in Texas. Cottage Living spotted her place and did a photo shoot. Here's some of it.
Then they hired her and she moved to Alabama and renovated a Mediterranean cottage, below.
I like her style because she mixes the old with the new. I like the greens, blues and creams that she uses, and that the colors flow throughout the spaces. She fixes up crummy-looking houses and breathes new life into them. What could be better than that?
These images are from the photo shoots in Cottage Living.
