Can You Help Me Out?

I need a copy of the June Better Homes and Garden Issue. 

I think there might be some updated pictures of this home that Eddie Ross decorated on a budget several years ago.

What a difference! Covering the overpowering yellow hue with crisp white created a serene backdrop, plus the illusion of more space.  "Provide visual interest by arranging some books horizontally," says Eddie Ross. "You can also place accessories atop the stacks." Coating the built-in unit's interior with a pale blue added depth.

Window: "The bigger the window, the better — except when the design is dated," says Ross of this one's pointed peak. So he squared it off with Sheetrock inside; outside, new cedar planks cover the work. Total cost: $175. (Linen curtains, from $49 each;  
Lamp: Grosgrain ribbon trim, attached with a glue gun, gives an off-the-rack shade a custom look. (Lamp with shade, $49.99; for stores)
Sofa: The price for this chic toile couch, including its matching armchair and ottoman? An unbelievable $225 at a thrift store.  
Pillows: The little details that finish a room often wind up blowing the budget, but Ross shopped smart — and saved big. (On sofa: Pink, $12.99; for stores. White, $12.99; for stores. On white chair: Striped, $16.99; for stores. Crab, $45; On chaise: Blue patterned, $16.99; for stores)

Holler if you have a copy!
