I would love it if it were so, but when I bought what I thought was a new Country Home at Barnes & Noble a few months back, I felt a little gipped because it was just a "bookazine" reprint of homes I have already seen (and loved, mind you!). If this news is true, please do fill us in someone!
But while we wait, here are a few images of the beloved magazine. And, actually, the name is such a misnomer. I find many modern touches and many edgy rooms in its pages. Here are a few. Do you still love this mag?
(Oh, and on my checklist--Rue article, done. Living Room sketches and plan in head--done. Aren't y'all so busy this time of year, too? Thanks for your wellwishes....)
Do you remember this nook? I find myself thinking of it often. Like a room within a room. And please check out the single metallic silver sconce on the right with a Swedish dining chair beneath. Perfection.
Funky yellow wallpaper, mix of pattern on the bed, giant, inexpensive paper lantern. Cool country.
(Hey, come to think of it, their website is up-and-running....maybe they are still in production?!)
banquette heaven (IKEA Saarenin knockoff) Check out the floors! What do y'all think these are?
Doesn't this kitchen remind you of the one I posted yesterday from Domino?
Damask wallpaper with (most likely) ironstone platters simply adorning wall. Love it.
Love a huge bedside table--like this (like a real table!) And the three various damasks on the bed. How simple and perfect (Can't tell if the headboard is wood with a white stencil...you can find this stencil at Michael's and Hobby Lobby, BTW....or upholstered in damask-print fabric.) Don't these mix of hues work?
And this wonderful kitchen. I think the next wave of kitchens will be a barnwood-type wood cabinets. I love my white kitchen, I do, and I wouldn't change a thing. But I do think the next thing in kitchens will be reclaimed, chunky wood mixed with materials. I think if Domino were still around this is what they would be doing next. Oh, and I think no more huge islands (which I also have...and love). I think only tables in kitchens in lieu of islands or two "islands"....one for storage and one table for eating. Forgive this tangent, just been on my mind lately)
Today I'm proudly wearing my graphite Hunter boots because there is finally rain in Atlanta!! Hoorah! Julie
