Country French Pillows & Magazine

Hello everyone!

Are you experiencing cooler weather where you live?  We are and it feels amazing!  It's cloudy, but breezy and cool.  It actually feels like Fall today.  That puts me in a very good mood!  

I wanted to share some new pillow covers that I ordered from H&M.  I love them so much!  I got them 20% off too since they sent me a promotion card with my last order.



They are made with a linen material.  I filled them with some down inserts I borrowed from some pillows I wasn't using.  Do you do that?  I have an attic full.  Y'all know by now that pillows are my weakness!


The french ticking stripe pillows that were here are now in my family room chairs.  I wasn't about to get rid of those!!!



While I was out shopping for groceries today, I stumbled upon the latest Country French Magazine.  It is the Fall/Winter 2013 edition.


I thumbed through it and was expecting to like just a couple of pages, when to my surprise, I loved all of it!  It's full of neutral colored interiors.  My fave!  This home stood out the most to me as being my favorite.


Yummy neutrals with lots of patina and texture.


I could just move right in!  Look at those wide plank floors and that huge stone fireplace.

Go grab a copy before they're gone if you like this style!

Hope you're having a good week so far and cooler temps.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love your pillows. They look great!

I'll have to get the magazine too. I have them several years back.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Love it- my fav style too- now can't tell but in that last pic - does it look as though the chandy is floating and not connected to anything holding it up to you, too?

Just wondering, looks odd to me.

Thanks for the heads up, guess I need to get to the store soon!

Very pretty pillow covers! We're definitely not feeling any cooler temps. down here. It's still just under 100 degrees. Hopefully in about another month, we'll get some relief from the heat. :) That magazine looks like it has lots of eye candy in it!

Denise Duffy said...

Thanks for the heads up! I'm going to WalMart later. Hope they have a copy. Love your pillow covers. They look perfect. And YES it is cooler here too. My electric bill loves it as much as I do.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/From Harvest To Table said...

Yeah! I love that magazine and wait all year long for the new copy to come out. I had to scan through your post really quickly so I wouldn't see any inside pages-lol!

Your pillow covers look great!

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

Kelly, your pillows are great! Love them on the chairs! I can see why you fell in love with that magazine. It is so you! Beautiful images!

Blondie's Journal said...

I actually think your home would fit very well in that magazine, Kelly! Especially the pics you posted today of your two chairs and the gorgeous cabinet. I saw that magazine but didn't even have a chance to look through it.

I LOVE your pillow covers! I wish I could buy every one that I see and love, they are hard to walk away from! lol!

XO,
Jane

OK, I am now on the hunt for that new magazine.
Back in June you gave me some advice about LED candles. I wanted to let you know that I bought some - with remote controls! My DH loved them so much we went out and bought MORE. Now my DIL wants some. She will get them for Christmas. Thank you for the great advice.

Kelly, I love the Country French magazine and have a couple of issues from a couple of years ago! I love that style too but unable to duplicate it in my home so I'll admire it in your home!. Love your pillow covers too. I have quite a few ticking stripe pillows and love them. I only like down inserts.

Hi Kelly! Oh, your new pillows are so pretty and looks beautiful in your lovely chairs! I love the entire set up with the great cabinet in between. Looks like a great mag. I used to buy this each time it came out. I haven't bought many mags in a while since I got into blogland! :)
Hope you're doing well and be a sweetie,

Very pretty Kelly!!

AntiqueChase said...

I told myself I would not buy anymore expensive magazines but got hooked in too! It jumped in my cart a few days ago... My husband with with me and could not figure out why the two boxes of popsicles I ran in for cost $20! Expensive magazine but cheaper than a decorator and great ideas!!
