Paper cravings 3

Best for styling tips and cool but easily achievable decorating ideas, Living etc is the first interiors magazine that I buy each month, plus it has a fabulous recipe section by Donna hay which is always a treat.

and after living etc there is

Country living
Elle decoration
The world of interiors
Vogue
Selvedge
Marie claire maison, my list goes on and on . . . . .

as well you will know by now my addition to glossies is almost as scary as my sweet tooth.

Hello Lobster and Swan! I think you're blog is very fine. I too like a good interiors mag - World Of Interiors on subscription & then Elle Deco and Living etc from time to time. Only problem is we're running out of space - what with all the magazines and furniture.

I'm addicted too! I have to admit that I bought Livingetc last time I was over and was very impressed. I have twenty years' Country Livings at home, my English lifeline, + piles of French magazines, my faves being Côté Sud, Côté Ouest. Beautiful!

Love the plates on the wall, such a chic, elegant look

I love living etc it is so much better than our australian real living and I always love the houses they show. I think I share both your glossy addiction and sweet tooth but really they aren't such bad things!

aw, I am a little jealous, hehe :)
we have mostly Italian magazines over here, which is great but the American ones have more DIY projects :)

have a lovely day!

The images are so incredibly gorgeous!

I'm a fellow glossaholic...and my list reads similarly to yours. I love 'Embroidery' magazine too which is only quarterly but a real visual treat. I think my favourite is Vogue though, I have every issue from 1995 and the pile is as tall as I am. I can't bear to throw them away.

I subscribe to Living Etc, Elle Decoration, Easy Living (which actually has really good design features), and then I've recently got into Country Living. My new favourite though is actually BBC Homes and Antiques - I think you'd like it too!

You've just reminded me that my elle decoration never appeared this month (how annoying!)

I adore that yellow sofa...

Living etc is my top pic too. Magazines are just the best, and I love trawling back through old ones occassionaly as you pick up things you perhaps didn't first time round.

Dear Ms Lobster,
I have a pile of Donna Hay magazines from circa 2002-4 that I was just thinking the other day I should get rid of because I never look at them. I mean, they're beautiful as anything, but a little bit unloved these days. Would you like them? I'd be happy to run them down to the south coast one day!

I love mags, i can't get enough!!

miniNigella said...

I agree....I love Living etc....it's probably the most inspirational.....

The Design Boards said...

These are such great inspirations. I love Living Etc. it's hard to get in the states but when I lived in NYC all the magazine shops carried it, definitely one of my favorite European mags!

I'm with you - LIVING ETC. is my all time fave and i buy it every month - even with it's pricey $ tag.
But it has the best interiors!!
Elle decor is my 2nd .....
