Heart Home Summer 2013

June 13, 2013

Heart Home magazine just released their summer edition a few minutes ago so it’s fresh off the press and looking lovely. Heart Home is an online shelter magazine run by two lovely ladies who live in England and Italy and bring such a sweet mix of styles and features each quarter. In their summer issue, their are many articles that highlight decorating as well as hot travel spots in Europe and lots of fun things to shop for in their market picks. Here is a fresh glimpse into their summer issue…

Look at this living room, it’s very simple and pretty. It’s where blogger Travelling Mama from Flying House lives at the moment in Copenhagen. Her home story is in this issue, too.

A glimpse into the home of blogger Emily Henson in London.

Emily made what you see above her bed using wire and wire cutters. Pretty decorative touch, don’t you think? “All that now exists was once imagined”. What a nice thought, and perfect for the bedroom since it is there where you can dream the biggest! In case you’re wondering, it’s a quote taken from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s book, “Wishes Fulfilled”.

Cute styling tip – flowers in a paper bag which is both simple and easy. My tip would be to place them in a vase and then place the vase inside of the bag so don’t skip that step!

Washi tape above a bed in a kid’s room. What a nice idea, right?

In the master bedroom, a simple iron clothes rack becomes a decorative element when filled with beautiful clothes that just-so-happen to complement the interior. The homeowner seems to be discovering her personal style through her ever-evolving home that she loves to decorate and redecorate often. It’s true, the more you practice at decorating, the better you will become until it’s just purely instinctive.

A quick spruce-up can be to simply paint a piece of furniture in a room in a very bold color. Imagine if this cabinet were simply white? It wouldn’t have the same presence. This color is fabulous.

Adding a fresh bouquet to your home can not only bring in a touch of color, but also a beautiful fragrance that can scent your home naturally…

    Sorry to critique, but I thought you should know that there are a bunch of typos in the paragraph about the wire quote!

      @Emily – THANK YOU. I edited the typos so “”All that none exists was one imagined” is now “All that now exists was once imagined”. Thanks again!

    I adore the wire quote, what beautiful words and a fabulous idea! I’ve got to try that (its budget friendly too!)

    So funny – I HAVE that white cabinet in my home….now wondering what color I should paint it! And I love the last photo, of the old stool and bottle and jar of flowers – SO much my style!!!

    What beautiful world!

    I absolutely love having fresh flowers in my own home! And it’s totally true about having to practice in decorating and redecorating, the more you do it, the better you get in it! And the better it all looks too. :-)
    Thanks for sharing, the simple pretty living room looks soooo cozy, I love everything in that picture!
    Much love,

    i love the light + fresh feel of this house – it’s wonderful + calming. the different incorporations of text through washi tape + wire are fantastic as well. our in-house designer at red has incorporated text on walls with some of our vintage letters before.

    nice house design, so simple and pure. I loved that flowers in the paper bad and the large flower jar at the last photo, it’s really nice.
