Hooked on House & Home Magazine!

My frustrations with the lack of good decorating magazines has been well documented on this blog....don't even get me started....

I was so pleasantly surprised after I took a leap of faith yesterday and purchased a Canadian decorating magazine called House & Home. (BTW - I do not know how to get all my photos the same size in this post - bear with me!)



I thoroughly enjoyed looking at a magazine once again that inspired me. House & Home is not Cottage Living - think more Domino.





The content of the magazine focused on a more modern asthetic with vintage items thoughtfully placed. I love the balance! It really is the look I am going for in my own home.

A perfect example of this mix is the vintage architectural piece placed over the bed in this photo. Love it!



What are you hooked on today?

  1. I subscribed to House & Home for many years. I gave up on it around 2006 because I was fed up with the out-of-touch-with-reality homes that they featured. The 12,000 sq ft summer cottage really pushed me over the edge!!

    A little while ago, Suzanne Dimma took over as editor. I decided to give H&H another try and picked up the June issue. Then I picked up the July & August issues too :-) H&H is SO much better now!!

    Good to hear you enjoy one of our Canadian home decor magazines :-) You might want to check out Style At Home as well. And there's a great magazine from the UK called Livingetc.

  4. Yay! Isn't House & Home great?! I found it earlier this year and think it's a nice compromise... sort of a combo of Cottage Living (my all-time fave *sniff*) and Domino. Love that last pic of the stripedy bed linens.

  6. Good lead -- always on the lookout for different design mags. So many have folded their tents and disappeared!

  8. I'll have to check this one out - love the pictures! I have a subscription to British Country Living, sometimes you just have to branch out beyond the US for a little extra inspiration I guess...
