Even though several shelter magazines are now online (great for pinning!) I still enjoy flipping through the pages in my own hands. My three faves I subscribe to are Elle Decor, Traditional Home, and House Beautiful. Although the online version may be a great weight & space saver for traveling, I enjoyed lounging with coffee this morning and flipping through the latest issue of House Beautiful. This was probably my fave issue of theirs by far! Why? Probably because it was so incredibly relatable with its features, interviews, stories, images and info. If you don't subscribe, look for it on your newsstand shortly! Here's a quick preview of some fave images and features...
This Reversible Fabrics Feature reminded me of the samples I snipped at JoAnn's back in February, and been wanting to get a yard to recover two stools. The one HB featured is called Pebble Beach from at linkoutdoor.com. My samples from JoAnn's are from Waverly...
The pattern also came in grey... Still reversible too...
Been on a big basket kick lately for summer. The oversized basket used to hold those extra toss pillows (under bedside table) is a great storage & display idea!
LOVE the ombre look of this wall display!
Easy to do with painted plates or even silver trays collected from thrift!
Stripe walls are so on-trend!
Love the look in aqua & white for a summertime bathroom!
Before we went to San Diego, I had seen this book featured at Houzz.com:
LOVED this book stores staggered wall display...
I had wanted to pick it up in a shop in La Jolla Beach, CA (above pic), but couldn't bring myself to spend the $55 on the book. Today, I picked it up at Amazon for only $32!
So miss our WHITE kitchen & LOVE the ticking stripped upholstered chairs!
We enJOY English muffins for breakfast, so this tasty burger caught my eye and we have to try!
Even the hubs got a kick out of the first sentence of the Mrs. Fix-It feature... "I have a disease". Jeff says that EVERY time he comes back from the grocery store - He can NEVER come out with that "just one thing" - nor can I when thrifting :) She thrives on home repair & decor :)
Great read on "Your house has a well LOVED look" about a love affair with the home <3
LOVE the simple look of this bed - NOT over stacked with pillows
(I too at times am guilty of doing)
Great look to mix into painted furniture:
Leave some unfinshed or exposed wood showing through.
My fave paint pallets to use... Neutrals, especially greys.
And my girl crush continued with the Lara Spencer feature,
also in the June issue of House Beautiful.
There are many more features to enjoy... So be on the look-out!
