Good Homes, April 2011

Much like House Beautiful, it's been a while since I picked up a copy of Good Homes, but I'm so pleased I did because the April issue is a corker! I decided to share two of the standout stories from the issue: New Season Revival Style and Trash to Treasure, the former giving inspiration for updating classic mid century style for spring; the latter full of ideas for upcycling. I was delighted to see products designed by my friends at Mini Moderns appearing left, right and centre, along with graphic dinnerware by Marimekko. The upcycled umbrella stand, made with spray paint and patterned oil cloth, has gone on my to DIY list. Do you have a favourite from these tears?

  6. Wow, some of that furniture really reminds me of pieces I sold when working for a vermont furniture maker. Especially that sofa! They are called Pompanoosuc Mills, if you are interested.
