Heart Home is a wonderfully charming e-magazine dedicated to everything “home”. It is one of my favorites. Not sure if it is offered in print format. I would not mind a stack of Heart Home sitting in my office!
One of the articles featured a lovely Scandinavian blogger/ creative director for a home related company. Her name is Dagny and she LOVES color! I have to give her kudos, she pulled off a lot of interesting color combinations. Jonathan Adler would be proud! It takes a very creative and talented person to combine just the right hues. Personally, in my home I prefer a more muted palate, but, I appreciate all the colors of her home just as much because they all compliment each other so well. It is a really energetic and fun home to look through.
So, as you can see, Dagny knows her color palate! You can check out her blog, Scandinavian Chic here. Apparently she just purchased a new home, so I’m sure there will be a lot of fun new decorating material coming soon!
Heart Home is full of many many other fun decorating inspirations, so i highly recommend this great little e-magazine. Plus, it’s free!
I will always have a soft spot for print magazines, but I appreciate the great e magazines we have available to us now. What are some of your favorites? Please. do share!
I am absolutely obsessed! I came across this site via Pinterst! I think I will order ten. I love the look of a cluster of beautiful globes on a shelf. It just screams ” I am a traveler!! OR would like to be!!” The globes at ImagineNations are unique and custom made if you so desire. All the globes are made with hand cut art and decoupaged on. What a great item for a collector or that person who has everything! Better yet! Start a globe collection of your own!
My Husband and I are about to celebrate our one year anniversary. It got me thinking about our honeymoon to the south. One of our stops was the lovely Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina. Boone Hall is a must see if you are visiting the Charleston area. (Its only about ten miles away!) As you drive up this gorgeous one mile road, lined with almost 300 year old oak trees, you start to feel the history of the farm sink into your soul. It feels as if they are inviting you into a special world filled with history and southern charm. You just imagine all the generations of families that walked these roads. Then you finally arrive! A large beautiful Colonial Revival Plantation home greets you! This home has been rebuilt as a replica of the original home built in 1850. So much charm! You park the car and start exploring this splendid property. Beautiful gardens, old buildings, large fields, and a charming old rambling creek. Boone Hall Plantation is one of our country’s oldest working, living plantations. Once known for growing cotton and pecans, it now grows strawberries, tomatoes and much much more! They also have these “u-pick” fields open all season and a great little market for all your produce needs.
They have done an exceptional job preserving the heritage of this plantation, you really feel a sense of respect for all the people that lived this life many years ago. Even though you are overwhelmed by the beauty and charm of the grounds, you still get a sense for what life was like here.
