Magazine of the Month.


I have to confess that monthly homes magazines are a bit of a weakness for me, and so many to choose from. Amongst my favourite's are BBC Good homes (hopefully will be staying on our shelves for many more years to come) Ideal Home, Country Living, Inside out when I can get my hands on it (an Aussie magazine) and of course Living etc, just to name a few.
Every month from now on I will choosing one magazine and blogging about it, in a new section of my blog called Magazine of the Month.
To kick stat this new section I am diving into Living etc, the June edition, and this month it is almost like it was written just for me! A whole 50 ideas for you walls ranging from giant statement circles to 3-D Tromp L'oeil wallpaper, (you may remember I did a section on wall coverings not long back) Pop-art mosaics for ya bathroom, which I think has a bit of an art deco feel about it. If you are thinking of up dating your walls, than this issue is for you.
In the modern lifestyle section I'm loving the look of photographer Pail Massy's home, and his
use of every day items such as a bin and a wooden crate box as side tables which work so well in his home.
If like me you have been sucked into the whole make do and mend thinking, then get your Tapestry needles at the ready as cross stitch is the next big Craft revival, new kits brought to you by Emily Peacock will have you creating your very own heirlooms to pass on to future generations.
Looking for a new cooker? then check out the selection of range cookers, with something for all, from retro to the classic timeless Aga, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Well that's my round up of Living etc, oh except to mention that the subscription offer this month is great if you are needing some new skin care products, I'm very tempted to subscribe.

If you have some favourite magazines that you think are worth a mention, feel free to post a comment at the bottom.
