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.
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.
