Elle Decoration, February 2011

This month's issue of Elle Decoration is so jam-packed with ideas, you would be forgiven for feeling a little unsure of where to start by the turn of the last page. I found myself tearing page after page - and I've not done that for quite some time. February's features are inspired yet accessible - a good balance for this more high end title. Inside you'll find: 21 easy ways to revamp your kitchen; decorating with classic whites with a citrus twist; a tour of Swedish textiles designer Lotta Jansdotter's New York apartment; the eclectic Brighton home of artist Jayne Neale; a guide to displaying the things you love and, of course, an array of breathtaking homes - my favourites being a dramatic white apartment in Munich and a character-filled New York warehouse space. Dive in and tell me what's stealing your heart!

  5. White kitchens really seem to be the trend right now. I love the use of the cow hide in the dining table...looks gorgeous. You'll have to check out madebygirl's blog. She posted pics of her new home, and she too has a white kitchen...AND uses a cow hide in her dining room...check it out.

  6. Cripes - that sunny lemon yellow teamed with the rustic timbers is grabbing my heart by the strings! I reckon this publication is one of the best all-time mags out there. I love their eclectic mix. Oh and thank you for dropping in to visit my blog yesterday - lovely to see such global hopping between blogs - fun, isn't it?

  8. I really love the touches of yellow. It's such a strong, bold color you don't need but of it to make a huge impact. Thanks for the inspiration.

  12. As hard as it was to choose I think the pops of yellow against white are perfection for spring!

  13. Love those clean white chairs and the desk lamp - very fresh for spring. And loving that oversized light fitting - Is it a paper one do you think? xx

    ReplyDelete
  14. Virginia Blue - yes, it's super fun!

    Rachie - I think it's paper - you can buy similar from Habitat or IKEA. Try searching for the Boule Japonaise pendant on Habitat's site, as I'm pretty sure they sell a medium to large size for about five pounds.

  15. Aah thanks sweetie - you are so helpful! Randomly John refuses to have the paper ones - not sure why i think its one of his pet hates but i have to concede something ;-) xxx

  16. That chair in the opening spread is to die for. I think it's the exact reading chair & ottoman I've been looking for. I'll have to buy the issue to get more info.

  17. Kristin - Isn't it lovely? It makes for a perfect reading nook.

    The chair and stool in the opener are both from Laura Ashley. I checked their international wesbite and this page tells you were you can buy their furniture in America: http://tinyurl.com/62nboty

  22. Oh oh!!! I have white bed sheets and a bright citrus lamp on my bedside table! I feel so 'in' right now. Please can I have a prize for being your 984th follower? So much more original that 1000th... ahem :)

  27. thanks for sharing! I love reading magazines from different countries! I bought a Vogue Korea when I was in Seoul this past summer and was so disappointed I couldn't read it (duh, it was in Korean hahaha) but the pictures sure were pretty!

  28. Roxy - I do the exact same thing when I go on holiday - buy all their shelter and men's fashion titles!

  29. Love the last shot of the NYC apt. The stairs are very cool, somewhat like a fire escape, indicative of big city living.
