Comforts of Home

Sunday's are lazy days around here. We get up late, lounge around, watch sports on tv, and read magazines (usually back issues because I'm always a month behind).

Now that both Domino and Blueprint are kaput, I have to rely on my House & Home subsciption for home inspiration. With Suzanne Dimma recently appointed to the position of Editor, I'm starting to notice small changes - like the incorporation of colour, pattern, and modern design with more traditional elements.

Case in point - this spread is arguably still traditional, yet it has a modern vibe to it - vintage poster hung on traditional scolls, modern wall colour and dark wood accents. Also, the use of orange text is a nice touch.

I'm hoping that coming editions of H&H incorporate a more modern Domino-esque aestethic while still maintaining the traditional glamour and elegance we've come to expect and love.
