House Beautiful, February 2011

It's probably been a good year or so since I last picked up a copy of House Beautiful, but I was pleasantly surprised by what I found within the February issue. Clean, structured layouts, short, snappy features mixed with in depth articles and great product round ups made for an issue I devoured in one sitting. I wanted to share my personal standout story from the makeover issue: Light & Bright, a refreshing and colourful Cape Cod-style cottage on a canal in Venice, California. I love how designer Alexandra Angle uses both stripes and checks in her patterns in the seating areas, whilst the kitchen features open shelving in Farrow & Ball shades. Outside, a similar relaxed vibe and refreshing style continues with an intimate entertaining space, complete with John Robshaw floor pillows. What do you like about this space?

  4. I've been looking through this issue too! What I love the most about this feature? The colors! I'm loving the blue and yellow and plan on using it in my bedroom.

    Today I posted about a lamp that I found a thrift store that I saw in one of the spaces featured in this issue!

    I love HB!
