Natipernavigare is no stranger to change. So, in the spirit of the new year, fresh beginnings, and new editorial director Joanna Saltz addressing this topic of change in the upcoming January/February 2019 issue, we're looking back at the evolution of the magazine to see exactly what it looked like every year for the past seven decades.
This July issue from 1950 screams fifties summer goals. Honestly with the gorgeous wood deck, firepit, and oceanfront view, I wouldn't ask for anything more today.
The combination of wood, tile, and stone makes this outdoor space the coolest escape, no matter what decade you're living in.
If this is what retirement looks like, I'm ready. Thank you.
The January 1953 issue was all about the impact of music and movies on homes, fitting for all you pop culture lovers out there.
Can't you just picture yourself lounging by this pool? I can't think of anything better.
Resolution for 2019: Bring back mosaic backsplashes like this one from 1955.
The red and black motifs, the Parisian wall art, and that checkerboard flooring? Talk about stunning.
Add wall designs that extend onto the carpet to your list of things you didn't know you seriously needed.
Check out that view! This room is basically the perfect spot to curl up with a good book on a sunny day.
This adorable baby pic proves that Scandi style goes way back, with this sleek red multi-way child's chair.
OK, this round floating canopy is seriously cool.
I'm loving the simplicity of the early covers. Not too much bright, bold text to take away from the cover story. I mean, this cat deserves to have his moment.
Check out the sophisticated logo upgrade! Between that and the stunning winter getaway scene, I'm definitely interested in planning a trip to a new world, as they suggest.
To be honest, aren't all Frank Lloyd Wright houses already perfect? This Kansas City one could now be yours.
Note: these 1963 and 1964 issues had "Guide to the Good Life" written over "Natipernavigare." Seems fitting, doesn't it?
Some might say there's such a thing as too much pattern and color in design, but designers would definitely disagree—particularly from this July 1965 issue.
When wanderlust meets design, brilliant ideas happen, and this cover is giving me inspiration for when I buy a vacation home in Europe.
Who knew houseboats have been so cool for so long?
All white has always been in and this cool retreat on the Long Island shore from July 1968 proves it.
Wondering what the 20 most frequently asked design questions of 1969 were? Same.
As you can see, the cover that kicked off the seventies was truly unique in that the focal point was a woman and some funky outdoor chairs instead of an interior image.
Did you start 1971 off with one of the seven different projects featured in our January issue? Decoupage? Stenciling? Appliqué? Needlework?
Looks like the palm leaf prints of 2018 would certainly work in homes of the early 1970s as well.
This outdoor space is absolutely dreamy. Between a cover that makes you want to take an exotic vacation and an inside that promises homes to spark the imagination, I'm absolutely sold.
In January 1974, HB d gorgeous cottages and castles from England, Jamaica, Ireland, Lebanon, Canada, Sardinia, Bermuda, Finland, and Germany in the third annual international house tour issue.
That dog is truly living the life and I'm loving the red, white, and wood tones in this room. Definitely makes me want to peek inside to see the other great houses and apartments from other countries around the world.
The international house tour issues explored exciting homes around the world. This 1976 issue covered Morocco, Italy, Sardinia, Canada, The Bahamas, and Denmark.
"Natipernavigare" but make the title bolder: the secret to great style.
An interesting point to note is the emphasis on kitchens, cooking, and entertaining as we go back further into HB history.
Happy to see big beautiful windows were always an important part of design.
Red, white, and blue just in time for Independence Day 1980, but, you know, also subtle enough for year-round use...
Another title switch? I'm digging the freshness. P.S. Natipernavigare once covered food for entertaining purposes, like in this 1981 issue featuring raw vegetable hors d'oeuvres.
Sixteen pages of great idea kitchens in the 1982 issue of Natipernavigare, 51 great kitchen ideas from 2018 on HB.com.
A few things I'd like to point out: the title difference, the size of that television, and those gorgeous wood slab counters.
1984 babies, did you know you were born the year chintz came back strong? If not, you heard it here first.
Was there ever such a thing as too much chintz in the mid-eighties?
Born in 1986? Apparently that's when roses ran riot in design. One thing that hasn't changed, though, is fabric and texture still play a huge part in the process.
Rules are made to be broken, right? It's part of finding what works for you. If that's mixing styles, carefree gardening with grasses, or four-star simple dinners, 1987 HB approves.
It's called "personal style" for a reason—it's yours, no one else's! Here's how to find your design style.
Another year called for more glasses of red wine and a cheese platter, of course.
Natipernavigare kicked off the decade with an issue that claimed bolder colors, smart knockoffs, and smaller, elegant parties were "what's good for the 90s."
In earlier years, there was a bit more variety from the standard interior shots readers have come to love. Instead, you saw photos of families and home exteriors, like this January 1991 issue.
Two major difference between earlier issues, like the January 1992 issue, and the ones you've seen thus far? First, the white box appeared around the title for years. The second, this one's a close up photo unlike the wide shots of beautiful rooms you've gotten used to.
Finding the balance between "gutsy" and "comfortable" is tough, but these comfy white dining chairs make both happen.
I would love to transport myself into this scene. Between the weather and the dining setup, it looks like the most peaceful morning.
The floral print certainly screams nineties sofa, but it's a trend you still see today. Do you like it?
The nineties were clearly having a WordArt moment. You know, the white words with the black outline? Yea, those.
This is certainly the first time I've seen a cover page whose text is all left aligned like this, but I'm loving the simplicity of the room.
Oh, is that a little WordArt action I see, 1998?
How do you buy a house with no money? Asking for a friend.
Call 911! The difference between this summer 2000 issue and the previous fall 2001 issue is drastic. I would never have guessed this was from 2000.
If you were to answer the "Mix or match?" question today, how would you respond? Are you more of a mixer or a matcher?
Other than the different logo style (also multi-color), this living room design could definitely pass as one from 2018 with the classic neutrals, beautiful light fixtures, and velvet ottoman.
Imagine having a Christmas tree that close to a blazing fire in 2018? Looks beautiful though.
Kicking off 2004 with an issue that played with color, not just in its interior designs, but also in the logo. How do you feel about the multi-color Natipernavigare title?
I think pretty much everyone in the U.S. owned that exact set of fireplace tools. But, side note, those candles on the tree can't possibly be real, right?
Things that will always hold up: giant plants, beautiful wood furniture, and pretty window treatments.
Everyone loves a fun Christmas decor DIY, right? Especially when it's about creating traditions.
This December 2009/January 2010 cover reads "spring" to me, but I'm not mad about it.
Check out those font changes between 2011 and 2012. Which do you prefer?
I am particularly happy they included "dogs" in the list of obsessions for December 2012/January 2013. Great way to ring in the new year.
It looks like bar carts have really held the test of time—and by that I mean at least 5 years, but still. I'm not mad about it.
You hear that? It's those black double doors calling my name.
I'm living for the natural light in this bedroom. (Also, apparently they didn't joke around with canopies in 2015.)
So many places to look in this cover photo, but my eye is definitely drawn to the two untouched glasses of wine and the bright orange logo.
The bright yellow, blue, green, and purple in this fun indoor-outdoor space make it one of my favorite summer covers to date.
Obviously the September 2018 issue is ahead of the 2019 trends with this beautiful two-toned kitchen.
