Everything Old Is New Again: Found Magazine

While going through some old magazines I came across a 2007 Midwest Living I hadn't read. This showhouse, the Stonelake Idea Home from the September/October 2007 issue, is attractive to me because it is simple, but well done. Nothing is over the top, but it looks very put together.I am always a sucker for a lantern.
How fun is the big flag and wall of wood for the fireplace?


I love finding old issues that are new to me. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to catch up on my blog reading!

deer head, I'm on it

I tried to explain to a group in Cambridge last night my whole deer head thing. I told them it was chic, they did not buy it:)

I LOVE that kitchen... It is so so beautiful! Thanks for sharing these photos. You are right in that the simplicity behind this design is exactly right for the house. Nothing too extravagant nor over the top, but just right. :)

Rachel said...

Really love that kitchen. Must show that one to my husband.

I love the wood stacked by the fireplace, too, and love going through my old magazines - just can't seem to ever give them up! You know, there is just a certain population of us out there who do this - others cannot imagine why I would hold on to so many magazines, especially when we move!

JMW said...

That house is great - of course, love that kitchen! And I even like the buck's head in the bedroom. Not sure why, I just do. :)

Design Esquire said...

Wow, I LOVE that home. Thanks for sharing!

I love this post! The living/family room is probably my favorite but the wood next to the fire place is pretty cool as well! Great find, thanks for sharing!

Oh, I'm a sucker for a lantern, too!

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

Me, too! That's why I hesitate in throwing any magazines away.

Sweet Nothings said...

I love it! I am dying to paybe paint my bedroom brown!

Down Pillow said...

Pretty spread :) I love the living room - looks so relaxing.

Emily said...

The brick in that kitchen works so well with this style. It's one reason I still love seeing into the homes of Boston; so many include that touch that is not seen too often.

Under a Green Roof said...

great pictures! I love the cool cubby for the firewood.

Millie said...

I'm very taken with the round dining table Marianne. I've always had to opt for a long rectangle because of our 5 kids & all their mates, but I've secretly yearned for something just like this - small & intimate.

Kellie Collis said...

They are always the best find! Its also good to see how your taste changes and evolves! x

Blair said...

Oh, I love the color palette in that first room--it is so warm.

Courtney said...

I love either discovering old issues that are new to me or just looking through old issues in general. That lantern is gorgeous, and I love the wall of wood as well.
