good reads : Heart Home, Spring 2012

The new spring issue of Heart Home magazine is out and as always it is packed to the brim with beautiful homes and delicious inspiration. I haven't had the chance to read it from cover to cover yet, but already I am smitten with it's pretty pages... I think it is fast becoming one of my favourite interiors magazines!

There's a lovely wee interview with Selina Lake about her new book (with more on the Heart Home blog)... and I love the Mid Century styled home of Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire (aka Mini Moderns) as featured on the front cover. Totally confirms that I need a starburst style clock in my life!

I'm also convinced I need some of this Orange and Pistachio cake in my life, especially with a birthday coming up soon... *ahem* ...hint, hint!

Oh, and there is a wee home tour from Catherine Hammerton, which I confess I haven't had time to read yet but I never tire of peeking into her beautiful home so I'm bookmarking this one for a tea break later.
I'm also bookmarking Jeska's (Lobster & Swan) sweet twig and tissue paper how to for next week. I think a few hours off with lots of tea and cake (see above!) and a wee bit of time out from the crochet to play with tissue paper might be just the perfect way to spend a birthday afternoon...

  1. This sounds really wonderful Emma, yes tea and lots of cake for your birthday :) Have a wonderful birthday, I hope its full of inspiration and lots of relaxation and fun!:)safxxx (p.s. you must get the sun burst clock, its beautiful!)

  2. I look into these magazines and wonder why my house doesn't look like that, so i have a bit of a love hate relationship with them! But this is so pretty and inspiring even from the thumbnail pics :)

  3. Nice review.

    And happy upcoming birthday!!

  4. That looks like a great read! I can totally vouch for the power of a starburst clock - I found one at an op-shop last year and it has totally changed my life! It just makes everything that little bit more glorious!

    I'm loving that sideboard on the cover as well.

    You have a birthday coming up next week as well?! Mine's on Thursday - happy birthday for yours, hope you have a great day! :)

  5. This looks like an amazing magazine!! Oh, and happy upcoming birthday, my dear friend! xoxo
