It's not often that I run into magazines or books that are completely me. Lots of magazines have pieces and parts of me, but I have a hard time finding a book that I just swoon over.
However, Better Homes & Gardens Do It Yourself or 100 Decorating Ideas Under $100 do it every time! Both magazines are filled with bright & cheery images. They use very bold paint colors. They have vintage or old painted furniture mixed with some funk. I adore every page. Some things are a bit more modern than me, but I still eat it all up & want more!
I just adore orange. I think a lot of people are scared by it's punch, but I dig it. My laundry room is Tide orange & I wouldn't have it any other way!
Is there a fungus amongst us? Sorry I couldn't resist! I love the poppy color of this green & the mushrooms are so fun! They wouldn't be cool forever, but I like to paint a lot anyway.
Gosh, so riddle me this - why don't they make more magazines & books like this? I would buy lots & lots & I would collect them. Yes, I collect some magazines & I would collect these! I also feel like this is the direction Ethel Edith is going with a bit more funk to it b/c we like old things too. I haven't ran it by my sisters, but I think they both would agree - these magazines are the shiznit.
