One of my favorite guilty pleasures IS my LOVE of DECORATING magazine!
When I did the big purge to get the house ready to sell…I had to come to terms with my MAGAZINE hoarding problem. I had hundreds AND HUNDREDS of issues of magazines…
once upon a time – we were even in a magazine!!!! Family Circle PAGE 36-40
…my favorites are
HOUSE BEAUTIFUL, HOUSE AND HOME, LIVING ETC, ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST, ELLE DECOR AND COUNTRY LIVING, TRADTIONAL HOME, SOUTHERN LIVING AND DOMINO
HOUSE BEAUTIFUL IS MY FAVORITE THIS WAS ONE OF AMY ALL TIME FAVORITE ISSUES. IT FEATURED A NEWLY DECORATED HOME OWNED BY KATIE UKROPS IN RICHMOND VIRGINIA THAT I HAD DISCOVERED WHEN IT WAS FEATURED IN 2008 IN THE OLD DOMINO MAGAZINE !!!
HOUSE AND HOME – GREAT COLORS – OUTSIDE OF THE BOX DECORATING- LOVE THE PHOTOGRAPHY
LIVING ETC IS MY GO-TO FOR INSPIRATION ESPECIALLY COLOR!!! LOVE THIS MAGAZINE ALWAYS GOOD EYE CANDY. PRODUCED IN THE UK AND HAS A BIT MORE COLOR FUN
ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST – ALWAYS AMAZING – CLASSIC AND GORGEOUS
ELLE DECOR – THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE ISSUES EVER! ELLE DECOR IS WHERE I GO TO FIND THINGS THAT MAYBE I WOLD NOT DO IN MY OWN HOME BUT INSPIRE ME. THE ART IS AWESOME.
TRADITIONAL HOME – BEAUTIFUL ROOMS AND I LOVE THE FEATURES ON DESIGNERS.
SOUTHERN LIVING – SO CLOSE TO HOME – I ALWAYS THINK – “NAW, I CAN SKIP THIS ONE” – AND THEN IT IS ONE I ACTUALLY READ – COVER TO COVER!!!!
DOMINO MAGAZINE – THE ONE AND THE ONLY – MY KIND OF MAGAZINE!!!
EVENTUALLY, I told myself that I could keep
3 collections…and the three I kept were House Beautiful, DOMINO AND Living Etc. Believe me, it was a tough day saying goodbye to those collections.
THE DOMINO BOOK IS HANDS DOWN MY GO-TO FAVORITE DECORATING AND DESIGN BOOK !!!
DOMINO BEST FRIENDS
THE PINK CABINET – WHERE MY MAGAZINES LIVE
The Pink Cabinet
MY TREASURED DOMINO MAGAZINES
I took an entire weekend – pouring over each issue and making sure there was not a page flagged or marked for future use. As I flipped page after page – and watched colors
and witnessed trends and the “INS” and “OUTS” – what became abundantly clear was how important ACCESSORIES AND come and go STYING is to decorating.
TOMORROW I WILL TALK MORE ABOUT ACCESSORIES!
