I had the pleasure of hosting Style at Home Senior Editor, Margot Austin in my class at Humber College North last week. I was so excited to listen to her talk about getting your work published, but, I wasn't expecting this little bitty thing to be such a straight shooter, no sugar coating anything kind of gal! I tell you it was truly refreshing and funny to hear this industry icon speak her mind and to be such a down to earth lady. Right down to using the quote "where the f*#@ is the magic!" Speaking about designs that are lacking that wow factor. It was very interesting to hear what they look for and what they do to the rooms/spaces that are published within the magazine. Let alone here what Margot had to say. I know the students enjoy it as much as I did, it truly was an interesting topic! Thank you so much for your time Margot and we do hope you are able to come back in the future!
Until next time,
w&c designer girl!
