You Have to See This Magazine

I picked up this magazine the other day at Sam's. It's $5.99, but magazines at Sam's are 25% off or something like that. So it was less than $5. And so full of home decor goodness. It is an awesome collection of beautiful rooms and wonderful ideas on ways to perk up your home. This glossy mag is stuffed full of before and afters and amazing room makeovers. This is one of the best magazines I've bought in quite awhile. I've been pouring over the pages of loveliness every since and I wanted to share a few of my faves.


Here's the yummy cover with the first hint of all the eye candy inside. Look at the beautiful stenciling they did on the wall. And I looove that rug.

This is one of the very first rooms featured. Look at the wonderful board and batten(I think that's what it's called, I call it pretty white trim stuff) they added to the wall. The color scheme is so soothing and beautiful.

I love how they gave tips on how to display photos and collectibles without creating a cluttered and overwhelming collection. And that clock they stuck on the fireplace is so creative.

The commentary behind this shot was all about layering different textures and shades of the same color to create a gorgeous space without the patterns and colors clashing. I may have to prop some throw pillows on my dining room chairs. (They never get used anyways)

These two bedroom photos showcase some easy bedroom makeovers that are mostly achieved with new paint color, a better furniture arrangement, and some fun and colorful accessories.

The final room makeover I wanted to share was this awesome bathroom transformation. Look at the scary green room of horror before compared to the spa like gorgeous after. It's hard to tell in this scanned photo, but they used some amazing tile on that floor.
So if you happened to see this magazine it's well worth picking up and drooling over the rooms featured. For $5.99 it's a great escape to view all these wonderful spaces and get some great ideas of things you can do in your own home whether it's a major reno. of just some simple and inexpensive changes such as a new furniture arrangement or throw pillows.
Happy Friday!
