Summer Cottage LOVE!

Happy REDnesday everyone!
I am in LOVE with this new publication, Summer Cottage!
 Have you seen it on your newsstands yet? The only place I have been able to find it so far, is Publix's grocery stores. It is published by Hoffman Media, the same people who publish Southern Lady. It was a little pricey at $10.99 but I can see it is one magazine I will keep and devour every little detail over and over. 
 Look at that sweet little RED table and 
the gorgeous RED vase on the shelf above!
It's so nice to see a magazine show rooms filled with color instead of the usual "All White Parisian" cottage look. Don't get me wrong, I swoon over those rooms too but they are not for me. First, I don't know how anyone keeps white furniture, white rugs etc. etc clean! And second, I just have to have color. I love my Reds, Yellows, Turquoises and Pinks too much. 
Oh be still my heart! Would you look at those punches of RED and all those luscious colors!
Another shot of the same house.

Look at this sweet cottage. 
Who wouldn't want to come home to this, so sweet! And notice the orange box in the corner, the magazine is filled with lots of 
"Style Ideas" just like this! 

Love this Blue and Yellow kitchen! 

This might be my favorite house in the magazine.
Cabin + Cottage = Love at first sight!
If you love pretty cottage decorating this magazine is a must have!
Please visit Sue at It's a Very Cherry World for more great RED inspiration!

  4. We don't always get all the magazines here Nan. Wow the prices on these are as much as a book.

  5. I bought one too!!! Added it to the groceries!
    Love the ideas.

  6. That looks like a lovely magazine Nan and hope you'll share more from it. I wonder how anyone sat at that red table though. You would have to pull it out or something.

  7. oh no! I just left a long comment and I think I lost it! sometimes I click out before i realize theres word verification!! Oh well, basically I said, Im a magazine addict and now I'm going to be looking for this one too! have a great night

  10. That red table set is absolutely too precious. I'm so in love with that vase. How cool is that. I could sit for hours with that magazine and drool over the pages..lol

  11. That is a rather pricey magazine, but it definitely looks like the type that I would keep forever, and not pass along to someone else! I agree with you, that as much as I love the all-white decor, I'm all about color. I hope I can find this magazine. It would be great if they sold it at Jo Ann Fabrics, so I could use my 40% coupon!
    Happy REDnesday,

  12. Great mag! Thanks for letting us know about this one ~ I will be on the look out for it. I love what I am seeing!! Happy Rednesday!
