What I Will Be Reading This Weekend

I just received the new House Beautiful and the cover reads, "The New Look of Wood". Does that excite anyone else? There are few things I want more than really pretty wood floors and I love a good wood piece of furniture, especially limed.I can't wait to sit down this weekend and really look through but glancing at the issue yesterday I was excited to see a house from one of favorite firms McAlpine Booth & Ferrier and I loved this kitchen- the way the counters and cabinets were done in Kelley McDowell's house...

I haven't been able to put it down. I so want the featured kitchen even though ellie says they put the fireplace in the wrong spot, ha!

While not an interior decorator, I just admire beauty I appreciate how clean and beautiful it all looks.
One of my sisters just built a house where she has no carpet. The floors are all beautiful wood. Issue one is she has 3 young boys (5,3 and 14 months old). Trucks and balls anf cars and other items all drop on the floor to make dings.

Wellll, its not as great as last months cover, but you know Im partial to my blue.
I love a good wood piece, and that 1st pic makes me want to curl up and take a little nappy nap!

I'm excited about this month's issue. I have it put aside just waiting for the weekend!

Ohhhh, fun. I love the look of old/limed/weathered wood next to industrial pieces and soft, white furniture.

Gorgeous interiors... wood gives a room such an "at home" feel :)

Beautiful inspiration! I love the wood with all the natural light coming in!

Left a little something for you over at my place

I loved the mirror in the top image.
Did you decide on a watch? :)

Ohhh, I haven't received mine yet, part of the charm of living in Canada. So excited and intrigued by the images you posted, just in time to help me plan the new home!!!

where is mine!!!!????????

i'm all about liming right now. love these photos, but i'm feeling left out since i can't look, too!

Just got it the other day and noticed the McAlpine house too. I haven't had a chance to digest it all, but House Beautiful is on the money as usual with the trends. Limed wood is quite popular and I like it. Hopefully it has some shelf life so to speak.

Oh so intrigued! How have I not gotten my copy yet! Boo! I hope it comes by this weekend!

Averill said...

For some reason I always get my mags about a week to ten days late -- it drives me batty! Hopefully I'll get mine before the weekend though. :(

Sarah (Matters of Style) said...

This was one of my least favorite issues ever, ha! I guess I'm just not a wood person. I was excited about Celerie Kemble's pics and even felt let down by those!

Rachel said...

Hmmm.... hopefully mine is waiting for me at home in my mailbox!! The pictures you've shared are gorgeous!!

charm home said...

I was so excited too! I read mine last night and LOVED it. In my opinion its one of the best issues they've had in a while. Beautiful images. xo, Cristi

Just received a copy at a FABULOUS talk with House Beautiful editor at the DC Design Center, and I can NOT wait to sit down to savor every page. I wish it was on the sofa in that room curled up under the yummy throw with a glass of wine on a rainy afternoon. That sounds like a perfect afternoon. xo
