Blogging... House Beautiful Sept. 2007

"Lavender is the new beige." The September 2007 issue of House Beautiful is all about color and "the New Neutrals." There's a great section that features some fresh paint color ideas. Most people opt for "neutral" colors for wall color, and House Beautiful asked a bunch of designers to offer some new ideas to challenge the notion that "neutral" has to be just beige and taupe tones...

They give examples like lavender hues, greens, and even a "parrot" red that I've now become unexpectedly drawn to. Definitely check this issue out if you're considering a fresh coat of paint in your home, or perhaps going to tackle a little DIY project this long weekend. They also have some amazing house tours and several combination examples inside. The September 2007 issue is out on newstands now.
