I subscribe to New Zealand House & Garden Magazine
so I thought I would give you a sneak preview of what's
inside this month's issue.
This country home appealed to me for it's
casual living style.
The family kitchen is filled with treasures
collected by the owners over a lifetime.
One of several bedrooms with french doors
opening on to the verandah to catch the breeze
on balmy summer evenings.
What really caught my eye was the Summer House
a wing off the side of the main house
with a delightful entertaining area
looking out on the paddocks and livestock beyond.
Do you subscribe to a magazine or just buy one occasionally?
I keep several folders of clippings torn out of old magazines
for future houses/renovations, paint colours and finishes,
Wishful thinking if the truths known
but I'm always hopeful - who knows we could win Lotto tonight
the big prize is $7million!
If I won, I would still want a comfortable understated home
with wooden joinery, french doors, shutters
an open fireplace and a window seat in the living room!
I like light and airy spaces.
A modern country kitchen and bathrooms would be on the list too!
Glitz and glamour are not for me!
I might show you some of the clippings from
my 'Kitchen Ideas' folder next week?
I'm joining Amy for Five on Friday
thank you Amy for hosting!
Take care and
be kind to one another
