reading up on small spaces | magazine style



as I've been moving in today (and unpacking, oh, 30 or so boxes), I uncovered my stash of design magazines - yay! I sat down for a bit and flipped through some to definitely relax in my new space for a bit and to check back in about what some of my fave design mags. I definitely confirmed my love of small spaces after seeing other people go through the same creative challenges that I am. Do you read back through old design mags for "now" inspiration?

I did until I recycled them all. Now I go to the book store or library (even better I look online) for great inspiration.

I collect a magazine for 12 months and then at the end, I go through and tear out my favourite pictures and articles for my inspiration binder and recycle the rest. I do the same with IKEA catalogs and my inspiration folder on my desktop.

i'm selective about what i keep, but i do keep a number of past issues of magazines that i grab now and then when going on the train, doing laundry or specifically 'looking' for inspiration. good design never goes out of style...
