{Country Homes and Interiors July 2010}

The July issue of Country Homes and Interiors proves how the magazine is going from strength to strength at the moment. Being a coastal special, I expected it to be page after page of 'beach' signs and fish paintings. How wrong I was! Yes, there are the occasional stereotypical beach-inspired accessories, but in essence, this issue has much more to offer. From colourful brights (2, 3, 9) to sophisticated grey-hued farmhouse-style kitchens (4), this issue will inspire you whether you live by the coast or inland. My favourites include: the vibrant azure blue bedspread (5); the multi-coloured striped napkins tucked into clear glasses (8); and as soon as I saw that deep beetroot colour (12) I knew instantly it would make a great accent colour. Thanks for another brilliant issue!

P.S. Be sure to head over and check out their blog, Country Days. It's a lovely and sometimes touchingly personal look at the life of Rhoda, the magazine's Editor.
