Livingetc November 2010

That time of year were we head out to the shops to buy loved ones a gift and return laden with extra little treats for ourselves is fast approaching. Livingetc's November issue is brimming with ideas that will seed gift ideas for the holiday season ahead. I've totally fallen for the colourful door mats; do you have a favourite from their picks?
Don't be surprised if you find yourself returning several times to the 'house of the month' spread as you'll find a new gem with every read. Be it the Habitat spindle lamp, the brass-plated island unit or the quirky narrow shape of the building, each photograph of this space is there to be marveled.
There's a charming subtlety to this issue. Statement features or outlandish patterns are few and far between, allowing small details a chance to give the lens a twirl. Never one to disappoint when it comes to their styling, the team have added an extra dose of sparkle to the proceedings in the latest issue. From tonal touches to white schemes to silently flickering candles they've captured that cosy autumnal mood with such ease.
I find myself drawn to the relaxed masculine qualities of these muted schemes. The simple headboards, divine grey fabrics and intriguing artworks make for bedrooms with some serious lust factor. Can you spot the antler lamp?
Although I'm not a big fan of the sofa in the foreground, this shot is actually one of my favourites of the issue. The way the doorway frames a slice of the kitchen excites me beyond belief. Nestled within a Connecticut home, the kitchen has been designed with an industrial take on a country kitchen-style. With olive green tiles and open metal shelving the snaps of this space alone make it an issue worthwhile purchasing.
This is a well-balanced, thoughtful and delicate issue that will have you reaching for the gift guides and hankering after a night in front of a log fire in no time. If it's whet your appetite for more, then check back in with Bright.Bazaar later today for an exciting treat from the Livingetc team.
