Here's the first behind-the-scenes peek at one of our Covet Garden Home features. It's an extra special treat because these shots also represent the first time any of the Covet Garden team has been brave enough to share the inside of one of own homes — in this case, feast your eyes on co-founder Lynda's amazing abode.
Of course, it helps put us all at ease when photographer Donna Griffith is behind the lens. Working with Donna made the day feel more like a girls' hanging out, super fun time.
There are so many reasons we wanted to share Lynda's space with you. First of all, blog readers who followed Lynda's Garden or Square Foot posts will want to see how those projects have taken hold and blossomed. Secondly, there isn't an inch of Lynda's space that doesn't radiate some aspect of her personality. We believe that every room in every home tells a story. Part of our plan for Covet Garden Home is show readers ways that they can use decor to tell those narratives. And Lynda's space really expresses who she is and what she believes.

The Covet Garden team has spent many hours hanging out at Lynda's talking about what beauty means to us and how important it is to share the creativity and talent that this city is teeming with. I'm getting a little misty here, but Lynda's place, filled with fun finds as well as treasured mementos from friends and family, kind of encapsulates that energy. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I have something in my eye.
