Red and White

3.04.2011


I was thrilled with the March issue of House Beautiful. The cover is all about pink, but inside is a home that is full of red and white. The title is Worn, Weathered, Wonderful and yes it is.














Look how close their stool is to mine. Love the red legs. hmmmmm

  4. Honey, you know I do! I don't subscribe to this magazine. But I may have to pick an issue up. By the way, your stool is much prettier...

  6. I love red and white. It is so crisp and lux. Especially reds that are a little muted, just like the red toile. Flutter,flutter. That was my heart!
    Have a great weekend!

  10. Great photos, thanks so much for sharing! It's amazing how a basic pallet can make for such a lively room. My absolute favorite piece out of all these rooms is the wicker chest in the first photo.. fabulous! :)

  14. I've always loved red and white. I am thinking of adding bits of red back in with my blues. I'm missing the red. Both the first and second shot are my favorites.

  21. You KNOW I love red and white! My front door is red, my house is white, my foyer is red and white toile, my transferware is red and white, my toenails are red and my legs are white.
    ;)
    Lovely post!
    Thank you!

  22. That feature was my favorite article in the magazine. Probably because it was really more about red and white than pink.

    I have been seeing a lot more toile out and about, expecially red toile. So your stool is certainly on the forefront of the trend.

    I have always loved toile. However, when it was so popular about 7-8 (?) years ago, things went too far and suddenly everything imaginable was covered in toile. My underwear, pajamas, oven mitts, towels, purses, and pants all sported way too much toile!

    I am ready for it to come back in favor. This time, however, my underwear will be a toile free zone! : )

  23. The red and white is such a lovely combination.

    p/s: I think your stool looks better :)

  24. They copied your stool I am certain of it!
    :)
    Thanks for sharing. I LOVE red and would also love to have a pair of those cutie pie toile slippers in the stool.
    Glad to see HB can come to this side of the fence every now and then and feature some realistic,country cozy non-contemporary homes.
    But that's just me.

    I need to get a smiley face button.

  31. I love red and white, always have! When I was a kid, my mom had a red and white kitchen. Our stove was bright red and she had roosters as accents. I think she was ahead of her time.

    Not that you asked (but when has that stopped me) but I like the white stool better than the red legs!

  32. Sorry, I like your stool with the white legs better.

  33. I do love red and white Kim. It is so cheery and fun! Red is one of my colors that I have lots of clothes in but can you believe I don't have a red decorated room----hmm might have to change that!
