I LOVE Country Living Magazine!

Pin It Now!


I subscribe to Country Living Magazine and I love it, love it, love it! Last week I got my new issue and opened it up and when I saw this, it took my breath away! My dream kitchen would have those marble counter tops...I know, they aren't practical at all but I don't care! Carrera marble and old crystal chandeliers have been part of my dream kitchen for a long time but now I want a pantry just like the one above! (notice the paperwhites...that's what reminded me to plant mine). Isn't this gorgeous?

Cindy, That room looks just like you! Your colors and everything! The pantry is the prettiest pantry I have ever seen! I love it.

Cindy I just got mine yesterday and couldn't stop looking at it. It is absolutely beautiful. Don't you just wonder where and how they come up with such beautiful pieces. First of all you have to have the room to put it in and enough space. I guess that's why they are in a magazine. Have a great day. Oh and by the way it's snowing now......ughhhhhh

I agree. They are just beautiful. It's a pity they don't fit in this house.
Have a nice day.

You and I like that blue and white theme, don't we? Yes, Country Living has been a mainstay in my life since they started, I suppose. All I know is I've been getting them since the early 1980s. Not sure when they began publication.

I love Country Living, too. Is this month's issue wonderful? I can so see you in that kitchen.

Kathleen Grace said...

That pantry just screams your name:>) If I listen closely it whispers mine too. Love it. I need to go out and get the latest issue.

Well, I know you love the color of the room. It is gorgeous and that window above the pantry caught my eye. I would love to have one of those in my home

That is my favourite magazine to, is the one luxery that we buy every month, and I just dream of my dream home

Bambi said...

That's probably the prettiest pantry I've ever seen. Every detail is beautiful, including those chairs, down to the bow around the paperwhites! I can see the wheels turning in your head! It's very classy, just like you!

Lisa said...

I think this COULD be your kitchen for sure. Your genious little mind will find a way I have no doubt. Now I am jealous though as mine only arrived today and haven't had time to look yet.

ginger at enchanting cottage said...

That is so funny I was going to post that same picture. I saved the picture and then could not find the artical. It is so beautiful!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

Got mine too and I love this issue!

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

That's just gorgeous, gorgeous! Love the blue and white. It looks so clean and airy. What is really catching my eye though is that breadbox in the middle of the cabinet! I want one of those so badly!

That rooms looks just like you! Such a beautiful shade of blue- you have made me start thinking seriously about blue in a room which I had never ever thought I would do! The last blue was the country blue with ducks and geese and I got very tired of that!!!

blessings to you

I just read Country Living on my lunch break today. I loved the robins egg blue and white home. Everything was soooo beautiful. I love blue, but ironically, do not have any. Those pictures make me want to change my whole decor!!

Anonymous said...

Cindy, I love that room almost as much as I love your apartment! I actually have the marble; now all I need is the kitchen! I found several large pieces of the marble on Freecycle and they are waiting patiently until the kitchen (or maybe bathroom) appears. And I've been looking for one of those white enamel bread boxes for so long! And, why hasn't my Country Living arrived?!?

Warmly, Linda (RMS "Mom of a German Shorthair")~~~

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Sherry...I'm so envious that you found marble on freecycle! You are so lucky!!!

Mary said...

I saw that picture too and thought of you! It's just beautiful...What other magazines do you regulary read?

Melissa Lester said...

That is a gorgeous kitchen! I love that blue, and the garland adds a nice touch that I would want to keep all year!

Sincerely Yours said...

Hi Cindy! This is gorgeous gorgeous! I love white marble too! I just checked this morning and this issue isn't out here! Must get it just for this kitchen! I think I'll try paperwhites this year as well! Have a great weekend - Sincerely, Jeannette

Marilyn said...

Cindy,

I've been a CL subscriber forever! It's always a treat when that magazine arrives in the mail.

When I first saw the picture in the magazine I thought of you, too! The look is very clean and soft for the holidays. I think you could replicate that look very easily. There's some nice ideas pictured!

southernbelle said...

This room reminds me so much of
you. I love it and especially the
bread box and paperwhites. You will
have your dream kitchen one day and
will be just as beautiful as this
one. I want to run out and pick up
this issue asap. Have a great day!!

Too funny. When I was at the magazine counter and scanning thru the pages, that same picture is what sold me into buying the magazine.

Hi Cindy, thanks so much for stopping by. I'm with you on the music, I do the same thing. While I'm liking these songs right now, it probably won't last long. I do that from time to time. I also loved this issue of Country Living and this was one of my fav articles to read. Have a great week, Theresa

Saucy said...

Sadly I missed the November issue and I never miss that magazine. Your post made me wish I could get my hands on it even more.
