It's that time of month when all the new issues of magazines come pouring in. The ones I look most forward to are Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Veranda and OK! magazine (don't laugh...I know its your guilty pleasure from time to time as well). The great thing about this blog is, I can do all the research and reading for you guys and reference it all on here and share all that interest me (and hopefully you) with words and more importantly pictures. You can write an entire article or book on how to design a room or space, but the second you show someone an image of what you like or are trying to explain, everything comes together. Like the old saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Actually being present in a room is preferred because you get an overall feel and you can experience the effect, but we can't all be everywhere we want to be with our fabulously busy lives, so I bring the rooms and spaces to you. Here are some amazingly beautiful rooms in the October 2009 issue of House Beautiful. This magazine is slowly becoming my favorite.
