House Beautiful November Issue

Have you seen images from this month's House Beautiful?  There is so much goodness inside that's been leaking across the internet! 

Check out this chinoiserie paradise by Ashley Whittaker Design:

A plush citron sofa paired with gray ikat and pops of deeper greens makes this room feel light but still livable.  I'm loving the ming style coffee table and how the darker wood pops against the light walls, fabrics, and rug.  And that green chinoiserie vase spilling over with cuttings?  Yeah, you knew I was sold.

The greens and yellows carry over into the kitchen/breakfast nook.  Don't the lettuceware plates and bowls work beautifully?  And of course I'm crazy about the pagoda-style pendant light from Urban Electric Co,

This show-stopping dining room makes the cover for November -- no surprise!  They had me at the wallpaper: de Gournay's Jardinieres Citrus Trees 

This is the one room where the couple's husband selected the decor choices, and I have to say it's probably my favorite room.  The Clarence House Tibet wallpaper is brilliant in here -- a small room so it's not overpowering and when paired with darker wood it looks so rich and masculine against all the lighter pastels of this home.  And anytime someone uses a Moravian star pendant I'm usually onboard. 
The master bedroom is on blue and white overload but I like how the rustic looking mirrored furniture keeps things from looking too pristine in here.

And a trellis-work sunroom?  Seriously this room couldn't get better, right down to the white bamboo pendant light peeking out at the top right corner.  
But here's the great part -- Ashley Whittaker's fantastic home isn't the only work inside November's issue that's worth a look! Check out this global-decor friendly Dallas home by Lisa Fine.

Layers of blues and reds and a health dose of pattern mixing is the recipe for success here.

Her collection of art is fantastic -- This gallery wall is so cohesive in color and theme but still looks effortless and completely free spirited.
