BH&G: Final Day & a Giveaway!

5.29.2009

Well, let's start with the giveaway. I have never had one on Blueprint Bliss and what better time than now as I finish up a week of highlighting the June issue of Better Homes and Gardens?

The giveaway will be for a year subscription to BH&G. All you have to do is leave a comment by the end of the day on Monday, June 1st. I will draw and announce the winner on Tuesday morning. Even if you already subscribe to the magazine- you are welcome to leave a comment and if you win you can pick a friend to send the subscription to.

Now onto Day 4-the last day of this little series. As much as I loved the house that I posted about on Tuesday- I feel that I saved the best for last...

From the simple white exterior:
.
to the homemade picnic table (what a great idea):
.

.
I adore this room below.
From the white walls, to the wood beams, to the neutral furniture with the bright pillows, to the lucite coffee table.... oh, and I love that bar cart/table... and of course the white hydrangeas...
.
.
Kitchen- all white with open shelving and the window above the sink. Enough said.
.
.
While I admit that I usually prefer neutrals (and sometimes a small pop of color/pattern)- I have always been a fan of the bright white/green combo.
.
.
Loving this whole set up...
.
.
As always- thanks for stopping by Blueprint Bliss. I appreciate each of you! And don't forget to leave a comment so you can be entered to win a year subscription to BH&G!
.
Have a great weekend!
Brooke

I think that the picnic table base is made from those metal horse watering things that you get at the co-op. I love it and the bright green and white room. I hope that ya'll have a great weekend (with no rain).

Love the picnic table. Looks like it was made out of found objects.

Alicia said...

Well now I can go pick up the magazine!!!!
I feel that the title of the one article
"Vibrant & Alive" suits the entire metamorphisis of BHG. Pleasntly surprised, hoping for more...in my mailbox.
What a delight this romp through its pages has been, with you & to give a subscription away to boot, it's...well, bliss!!!!
