Magazine Edit

One of the things I decided to do this year was to not buy house/design magazines. I love magazines. Inside Out. Real Living.They have been my secret pleasure for many years. A good magazine says ‘sit down with a cup of tea and visit with me.’ And I do love to pour over the pages of a magazine, be inspired, informed and challenged. But after years and years of subscribing to and purchasing mags I have come to the conclusion that I could save a small fortune foregoing this indulgence. I still read one if it comes my way (via a friend, waiting room, supermarket aisle) but I don’t plan on paying for one this year. Possibly the burgeoning popularity of Pinterest, together with my interest in reading blogs, has almost made the need to turn the page of a magazine redundant. So here it is – edit the magazine.
