House Beautiful January, 1957
I also got several vintage House Beautiful Magazines from the 1950s. These magazines are filled with mid century modern decorating ideas, so I'm always on the lookout for them. They usually cost only a dollar or two.
House Beautiful September, 1953
You can see the popular color schemes from the era and find out about all the new products of the day. Plus, the vintage advertisements are fantastic. The magazines are worth buying for the ads alone.
House Beautiful December, 1954
Although House Beautiful is not my favorite magazine, I still like to collect it. I much prefer Better Homes and Gardens because they were a little more modern in style than House Beautiful. Some other vintage magazines that I like are House + Home, Interiors, and Mademoiselle.
House Beautiful December, 1956
Two of the magazines are Christmas issues with a lot of mod holiday decorating ideas. There are instructions for making some interesting paper lanterns. The next holiday season I really need to make time to do some of these vintage craft projects.
