New on the virtual newsstand...

Why don't you sit down with a lovely Cafe au Lait, Latte or Cappuchino (or whatever comfort drink you like) and enjoy this new issue of Dabble Magazine? I am sure you will enjoy their travel section - I did - and their food section made me seriously hungry!!

My favorite feature was this article on Masterful Mixing where "nothing matches but it all goes together", which is my kind of decorating anyhow.

I pulled this image (above) as my favorite, not just because of the wonderful blues, but the layering of colors, textures and objects, makes for an interesting tableau. I like the leaning framed poster, against the mirror, makes everything a little less formal!

GREAT use of a small balcony, what more do you need?? A comfy chair, a plush pillow, somewhere to put up you feet. I like the stripe fabric; Not to cabana-ish, more in the direction of men's inspired fabric.

The framed artwork made me take a second look, perhaps they are Kerrie's? If you would like something similar for your walls, check out Driftwood Interior's Etsy shop.

I find all the blue and all the texture in this article just yummy, keeping the eye moving from item to item. One might argue not to use all these different shades, but for me it works, and it's exactly what makes it interesting; Masterful Mixing indeed.

  1. Very lovely indeed. The blue is a cool color and very relaxing. I yearn for a balcony or porch in our next home and that one is just perfect!

  2. the last image was my fave.
    i still like those gourd lamps.
    and that blue one is great.
    thank you for your comment

  3. These are gorgeous! Love those outdoor seating with the stripe cushions. Enjoy the beautiful weekend, Kellie xx

  4. This furniture is so serene without being plain or boring. I just love the pretty blue colors and patterns. So fresh and clean.

  5. Natasha,

    It just occurred to me, you may like a post I wrote about life in present-day Denmark. There's an interesting link showing a modern Danish home: http://thesavvvyshopper.blogspot.com/2009/10/keeping-up-with-joneses-in-denmark.html.

    Certainly, writing it made me think of visiting Copenhagen some day.


Don't be shy... let me know what you think.
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
