The New Traditional

I absolutely love the magazine House Beautiful.  I think it blows all other decor mags out the window.  I can't wait until it rolls in my mailbox.  I have a very hard time throwing old issues away but had a recent purge due to the size of this apartment.  Maybe it just is more my style and has decor that I love; there's something about that magazine that has my heart.

When the December/January 2012 issue came I found my dream interior.  Apparently it's called the New Traditional.  I love it because it has all of those classic regal accents in a light and airy space.  The texture and warmth created with perfectly placed but not over abundant color is outstanding.  There's a mixture of old and new which makes the place feel lived in.  I hate it when you look at an interior and think it was made for a magazine, any living room should feel like a home.

I've never before seen an interior of a home that I loved so much and thought was decorated perfectly.  So this just so happens to be my new dream home.  It's perfect.
 see more after the jump!  you won't regret it....

 The only thing I don't like is the exterior.  I would prefer faded shingles and a wrap around porch.

So I made sure to cut all of the pages out of the magazine so I can keep them for inspiration when I finally have more than one bedroom to decorate.
