The July-August issue of House Beautiful is on the stands. My copy arrived this afternoon in the mail and I have spend the afternoon swooning over the issue. Under the new direction, Newell Turner (his first issue as editor in chief) has made my jaw drop. This issue is a keeper for sure!
I am just in love with the cover 390 square foot one bedroom (loving the colors, creative storage, bright red closets and the 18th-century Chinese wallpaper), the 450 foot studio (balcony, fireplace, white floors, adorable kitchen and toile screen and daybed) and the One-Day bedroom makeover.
Since my apartment is also small, I always love seeing how people are creative in their spaces, without having the luxury of space.
In the feature called: WHAT WOULD YOU DO? I picked a couple of my favorites to create a fun looking shower curtain!
"Since the bathroom is white, I thought playing a bit with color would be fun. This is an outdoor fabric, which avoids the mold problem. Most rings are metal or plastic, so I picked something a bit different and unexpected- bamboo. I chose the nickel rod to tie in with the rest of the fixtures in the bathroom."
