Sorry I’ve been a little lax at posting lately because of vacation and some other totally valid reasons which I will explain soon. No I’m not moving again!
I tryÂ to refrain from spoiling others’ reading of a specific magazine issue, I seem to get mine laterÂ than other bloggers in other parts of the country and sometimes they drop the images a little too early. But I think we’re safe now so I can gush about how much I loved House Beautiful this month. Thank you HB for carrying the load when so many others have failed. I keep reading that the editor Newell Turner is the coolest guy ever and we know he reads blogs as evidenced at MFAMB.
Allow me to point to my favorite dwelling featured in the June issue.Â SomeÂ might be a bit boredÂ ’cause its not edgy– thereÂ is no giant art installation of a woman’s mouth over the bed ( you know what I’m talking about Kips Bay) but its a modern cottage and I know aÂ lotÂ of us can appreciate some modcottage, especially me. Let’s begin.
Â The lead in almost killed it as I hate anything romantically styled,
but recovery came quick, I knew that designer Lindsay Reid and I would get along well when she painted the living room Ben Moore’s White Dove and used PB’s Peyton drape, which is on saleÂ btw and I need to get on that.Â OK so, solid choices Lindsay, go on…
But I have one problem here, I’ve got to know what the floral fabric is on the accent pillow on the sofa. I checked the sources in the mag and online and its not listed, forget the chinese chinoiserie on the sofa I got that but the floral isn’t listed. Do any of you overachievers happen to know? Help!
Calming, serene bedrooms which is something I am in to.
The antique suzaniÂ dialsÂ itÂ up in the home office.
Loving the thistle block print fabric on the pillow. This won’t be the last time you see this kitchen.
And there you have it. I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts, let’s start a dialogue.
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
