Preview: I Love Real Living!

Another beautiful issue is out from one of my favourite magazines, Real Living.  Lots of eye candy this month  – including this art-filled space from their art director, Carly Townsend and her boyfriend Mitch.  I love all the little vignettes and art pieces everywhere - makes for a cool, relaxed space.

Also the bonsai appears - maybe something to consider for our living room?  I'm so focused on cacti at the moment for my green fix, but loving that one bonsai at the top - (they offer a feature on bonsai for beginners which I could so see me getting into). Snip, snip, snip.

And a few good examples of some nice paint jobs in their bonus 34-page special decorating with colour.  The block colour on the stairs (love) and the grey wall and fireplace (goes so well with the logs).  There's a few more images from their August issue on their site - click here to see!

I got my copy of Real Living through the magshop app - here's the link!

Oh my goodness those stairs are so fun! I wish I had stairs so I could paint them just like that :) I like the way they only painted a portion of them the pink color, and left the side section white. Very interesting.

Totally awesome! I will definitely have to check out Real Living. The fiance and I are very proud of our little loft and this gives great inspiration!
