5 Hyper-Local Magazines for Design Inspiration
Magazines—both print and digital—are an excellent source of inspiration. They help you choose your window treatments and the “best local chai,” or give you recipes for the holidays or tips to “get over him.”
There’s a magazine for everything and everyone.
Inspiration for the home is especially popular in magazines because a magazine is SO visual. Who doesn’t like flipping through a periodical filled with beautiful homes and breathtaking selections?!
The creativity in EVERY space…
Whether you’re thinking of redesigning your own home interior or just want to browse some beautiful stuff, magazines are both nostalgic and practical. Pinterest and other inspiration boards online are fine, but the editorializing about key design decisions that you get in a magazine make it worth flipping through to learn about.
