All About Blue with House Beautiful

If you're me and you see a cover like this in your mailbox, you know it's going to be a good day.

Then you read the editor's letter only to find that Stephen Drucker mentions your little old blog?

Now THAT, my friends, is a fantastic day!
Isn't that a hoot?! I can't get over it!

Seriously though, if you like blue/turquoise even a little bit, you're going to drool endlessly over this issue. It's jam-packed with so much eye-candy I can hardly stand it. Not only that, but I know many of you will appreciate the color section where they go over which blue paint colors designers use the most. All those yummy paint swatches are making me crazy to get out of my rental! If you're even thinking about painting, definitely grab this issue.

Last but not least, that stunning cover features a room designed by none other than Tobi Fairley. If that image alone won't entice you to check out this blue issue, I don't know what will! Maybe the fact that her project received a 10-page feature inside?! Here's a sneak peak I took off her blog. I know how much you all love the Marjorie Skouras chandelier!


So thanks for the mention, Stephen Drucker! Rest assured the first thing I'm doing when I visit Paris is heading over to rue Jacob to check out that shop! It sounds truly magical.

My HB issue came yesterday, and as usual, I devoured the entire issue right away! I was absolutely ecstatic to see the mention of your wonderful blog -- you deserve it.

Your posts are always lovely, rich and full of stylish rooms that inspire us all. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this blog.

Way to go!

Casey said...

Mine HB issue came last week and I was so excited just by the cover! It's a great issue!

I also LOVE that chandelier. It debuted in HB in someone's foyer a year or so ago I believe. I purchased a small vintage chandelier with the same shape and plan on redoing it to look like the one on the post. My plan is to hang it in my foyer. We will see how it goes!
