February House Beautiful

this month's house beautiful is one of those issues that had me drooling beginning to end. one of those where you don't want it to end. and i know i'll be going back to it again and again. don't you love that?

the cover alone had me at hello. it's of a home in venice, ca that looks like light, bright, airy perfection. i think now that winter is fully upon us in the arctic north, i am particularly drawn to this summery space.

i absolutely love how the trim is painted out blue against the white walls.

onto another house - how about this green kitchen? love the lighting, the plates, the cabinetry, and of course the ceiling. ceilings are so easy to forget but it really is the 5th wall. if we didn't have textured ceilings (one step up from popcorn!) i would totally paint one of our ceilings a pale blue.

and in the same house were these gorgeous drapes:

they are starting a new series with one of the HB editors on the makeover of her home. this is the living room. gotta love that carleton v wallpaper - how fresh.

and finally, this bathroom was featured as bath of the month. stunning. and what i really love is the tan with lavender color palette. our upstairs hall bath is in need of a full gut and redo and those are the colors i was thinking of using! i feel so cool. :)

if you don't already subscribe to house beautiful and are looking for a new magazine to read, i highly recommend it - and no one is paying me to say that!!

p.s. go ducks!!!
