The English Home

Generally speaking, I am not a huge fan of the magazine "The English Home". Although I find it quite pretty to look at, I find the homes a bit too too if you know what I mean. I prefer a bit of realism in my home and in the magazines that I buy. Country living and BBC Home and Antique are a bit more my style. However, the April issue of TEH is so pretty I had to share with you.

Several articles piqued my interest this month and most seem to have the same theme. Neutral colours mixed with charming patterns. Now that is my style.

And I thought this beautiful green floral wallpaper was to die for.

Ah, a bit of realism to relish.
But that's just my opinion ;)
I will be updating you soon on the baby knitting, it is slooooow.

I whole-heartedly agree. See, I think CL is too posh for my liking. I really like 'Country Homes and Interiors' and 'Period House' because they don't feature hugely expensive, unobtainable homes. I remember one mag (not sure which one) featured a house where the children had their own kicthen complete with Smega appliances!!! I mean, who the hell can afford or justify that!

I love that green wallpaper. On so many decorating shows they talk about removing the wallpaper. While I realize that some wallpapers are not very attractive and some of the borders are hideous, not all wallpaper is ugly. I could imagine using the green floral you featured.
