That feeling of holding that glossy magazine and seeing your work amongst the beautiful pages for the first time is magical.
Sisalla Interior Design have published every single one of their projects, without a PR agency. Their projects have featured in Elle Decoration UK, Belle, House & Garden, Real Living, Domain and Art Edit. Not forgetting the digital realm such as The Design Files, Est Living, Apartment Therapy and more!
You can do it yourself and we want to show you how!
The process to land your project in a magazine, be featured on a prominent blog or shared across social media is a job onto itself, and one that is not taught at design school. From the initial client meeting, to achieving the design vision that is ready for photography takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Once the project is finished, it needs to be styled for photography, which is a very different way to styling the space for living. Lauren shares the steps on how arrange a photoshoot, including finding the right photographer for your project and how to give them a detailed brief. Why you should engage a photographic stylist and loan a (literal) truck-load of props. All is not what it seems in those pinterest worthy images, it’s smoke and mirrors guys!
Once you have your incredible images, we show you how to create a pitch to the magazines to get the editors attention. We share with you our editor contact list - that’s right. You’re getting an editor list of names and email addresses.
