When I was younger, I used to sift through my mom’s Vogue collection and basically took them over at a certain point—that was the beginning of it all! I had never been so inspired by something before—the captivating imagery, beautiful graphics, and stories… the impact this curiosity had on me was the catalyst for the career path I’m on today. I am a lifelong subscriber to my favorites, the ritual of reading through them has become such a big part of who I am. To this day, they are one of my biggest inspirations.
I have subscribed to a few over many years, but since the pandemic, I added a few more to my roster. Needing all the feel-good moments and inspiration I can get! I’m excited to share with you this noteworthy list. I mainly look to design magazines at this point. Sadly to admit, I unsubscribed from Vogue a while ago… they just weren’t doing it for me anymore… so many ads and just wasn’t walking away feeling as inspired as I used to.
These guys, however, make me drop everything upon their arrival to sit down and enjoy a hefty dose of beauty, ideas, and escapism…
Architectural Digest Spain — this is an absolute favorite! I can’t tell you how much I take away after flipping through these. I discover so many cool designers and brands, it’s always such a breath of fresh air.
Architectural Digest US — AD is just the best, so obviously have to subscribe to US as well.
The World of Interiors — one of the best delivery days… this and AD Spain are my top two… will always subscribe to both.
Cabana Magazine — a feast for the eyes! Cabana issues are basically coffee table books… I have been collecting them for a few years now, they are such a treasure.
Harpers Bazaar UK — since Porter is on magazine hiatus, Harpers Bazaar UK has become my one and only fashion favorite.
House & Garden UK — again, UK does it better. Obsessed.
Elle Decor — another design favorite! Classic Elle makes me happy, too.
Veranda — lastly, love Veranda! I just read the latest issue this week, so many beautiful new discoveries!
