My Favorite Things * House Beautiful

I notice magazine covers; the layout, the colors, photos and the placement of the photos in relation to the the text. The June issue of House Beautiful has one of the best covers I have ever seen. They have created a beautiful, true to it's name, symmetrical layout that matches the symmetrical photo with a perfect color choice for the text. It is simple formal and pleasing to the eye. It draws you into the magazine which should be the goal for any magazine cover. They also achieve the goal of creating the feel of June but it doesn't stop with the cover. House Beautiful features a dreamy 1930's Malibu house on the ocean, recipes from the Chris Stone's new cookbook Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone and a great section of Everybody's Favorite Everything from designers. House Beautiful is one of My Favorite Things.
