"To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of JUNK." ~ Edison
It's finally HERE! If you are like thousands of others, you've been counting down the days till this little beauty's debut! Well, she's here and she's spectacular! It's the baby of a couple of style gurus, Ki Nassauer and Matthew Mead. With the DEMISE of so many great magazines of late (Domino, etc.) this fresh face should have an awesome audience. If you only buy one magazine this Spring, make it FLEA MARKET STYLE. Even if you don't go to flea markets (I don't) but I LOVE a good antique mall and my favorite little antique/junk shop.
EDIT: I meant to mention that my wall color in my family room is almost the same color as the room on the cover, it's a bit more muted. It's called Impressionist Blue by Ralph Lauren and Linda from http://www.restyledhome.com/ was kind enough to remind me of something. It's OOOODLES cheaper if you have your heart set on a high end color, to take the sample and have it matched to a paint more to your budget. We almost always match Ralph Lauren Colors and have them made into Behr paint but this time we didn't because the RL was on sale, but the painter in the family (sure is heck isn't me) said the Behr goes on nicer!
There are so many great ideas packed in here plus tons of links to GREAT sites that you may not already be addicted to! Here's a couple: This first one is the magazine's blog link
