Sources of Inspiration

January 02, 2011 | FILED UNDER: Uncategorized
I love, love magazines. And judging from the 3 foot tall stack of them on the entertainment center, I subscribe to way too many! But you can’t beat a $10 subscription for a full year of inspiration. My subscriptions all tilt heavily to home and food:

  • Better Homes and Gardens – my all-time favorite and such a reliable standby – I have been reading it since taking copies from my Grandma as a grade-schooler
  • Martha Stewart Living – anyone who knows me knows that I am a Martha devotee, which includes watching her show, buying her products, and subscribing to all her publications. Oh, I also own her (dismally performing) stock!
  • Southern Living – not just for people in the South! They have great recipes and often good design ideas
  • Midwest Living – gotta have it if I’m going to have Southern Living!
  • Family Circle – not as crazy about this one, but they do have some good DIY design ideas from time to time
I also like, but don’t subscribe to, Elle Decor (often a little too ‘frou frou’ for my tastes) and Country Living (often a little too country for my taste). Unfortunately, several home design magazines went under in the past couple years (right along with the housing market). I used to love reading Domino, Home, and Blueprint before they cancelled my subscriptions

My food / wine / health magazine subscriptions for good measure:
  • Bon Appétit
  • La Cucina Italiana
  • Wine Enthusiast
  • Everyday Food (Martha Stewart publication)
  • Whole Living (Martha Stewart publication)
