This wonderful magazine came in the mail today. I love it. It is probably the most modern of all the magazines I subscribe too but there are so many pretty things in each issue. Here are some of my favorite covers:

I really love the colors in this room. Most definitely Cool. Hello pretty Zebra pillows and really cool table.

What can I say about the amazing sofa and wall mural.

Pretty blue walls

True Love

Perhaps you are wondering why I am so devotedly in love with

….this beauty.

Louis Ghost Armchair Philippe Starck

What I love about this chair is first and foremost the blending of old with new. I love it when old things are made modern. This chair blends all the things that made the Louis XVI era great with everything that is making furniture of today great. It’s transparency gives it a floating and weightless look that enhances any space.

Hotel Urban – Madrid, Spain

Domino

They are very expensive so I’m keeping my eye on Ebay. One day I will own at least one, get it insured like there’s no tomorrow and then keep it in my bedroom to look at before I fall asleep.

A Lesson on Color

I love my color class. I have learned a new appreciation of the color wheel and the magic it can bring into a room. I think most people just kinda put whatever colors they think match in a room and don’t even realize there is a sort of science behind it.

Of course I think any colors done right can look good together but there are just some that automatically bring out the good in each other. So if you consider yourself “color-challenged” these are some simple color schemes to go with.

First:

Monochromatic

To achieve a monocrhromatic look is really simple. You only have to pick one color!! You can pick different tints or shades of the color but it must be just that one color. So with blue you can do light blue or dark blues together but to really achieve the look you would leave out blue-greens and blue-violets. The key with using one color is to really mix it up with pattern and texture. It has a chance to be a little boring but it can also really make a room look unified if you do it right.

Considering a Transfer

I love some of the College campuses in the East Coast and all over Europe. The old buildings are so beautiful and have so much personality. Wouldn’t it be a lot easier to study among these beautiful settings? Not that my community college in the desert isn’t great. I mean who doesn’t love a campus of dirt and rocks but seriously. These are beautiful.
