30 Notes
  • I always look at fabulous home decor pictures, and capture the perfect looks for my own home. I realized I’m highly indecisive when it comes to decorating. I guess I have commitment issues. =)

  • I am seriously running out of space, love the shelves near the bed…great ‘bedtime reading’ and out of the way :) And that dog! Looks unreal!

  • Really love this idea of storing magazines! I have so many that this is perfect!

  • My husband built me beautiful magazine storage for our home in Marrakech – it holds 100s of back issues!

  • Mmmmm, that metal and wood shelf is gorgeous. I’m thrilled about this industrial/restoration trend- it’s a beautiful way to incorporate a masculine look into decor. Trust me, my boyfriend is thrilled too!

  • Love these one’s. Always looking for new places to stash my magazines.

  • Really beautiful … and then I saw the dog, adorable .. I’m such a softie for pets.

  • So beautiful and inspiring!

  • I wish my place looked like that…only in my dreams!

  • After the bottom fell out of the basket where I was keeping my magazines I realized that I need to come up with some more permanent storage method. I’ve always loved the look of pretty leather or fabric covered magazine holders neatly lined up on a shelf.

  • Really nice.I love the bottom picture. Jas

  • Oh, the second layout is so lovely! Neat and organized, yet a little interesting. A fun idea :)

  • That first set of shelving is right up my alley! I’m such a book shelf snob–I’m so picky that I actually don’t have any in my house right now because I can’t find any that I like within my budget. I’m tired of all those crappy Ikea shelves, so I’d rather go without!

    Now if I could get my hands on a set like in that pic, I’d be golden!

    The other ones I have my eyes on are these–they have a set in a vintage shop near my house, and every time I walk by I press my nose to the shop windows like a kid outside a candystore: http://tinyurl.com/yg7ar8f

  • This is a great idea, i’d probably use it as an area to show off my favorite magazines, as I have boxes and boxes of them stored in my spare bedroom.

  • Lovely organization! Cute pup too!

  • Maryam – sounds fantastic – always good to have a handyman around :)

    Anne – the shelf you linked is gorgeous!

    Hope everyone is having great week,

  • Love your blog. I’m trying to link to it on mine, but it won’t work! Have you heard of other people having this problem too? I also use blogspot.com. Thanks.

  • Hello Amy — thank you! + yes, the problem is with the feed — try using this url instead:


    Hope that helps,

  • I love those. SO. MUCH. xoxo

  • I love this idea, it turns your magazines in to little stacks of art!

  • And of course, somehow you know that we all need help in this area!

  • what cozy looking spaces!

  • the key would be how do I keep it looking like this??? lol!

  • Great ideas! I’ve been looking for a way to store my ever growing collection of home decor magazines. Maybe my husband could build me some shelves :)

  • Wow! Who knew that so many magazine could look so organized?? Amazing!

  • LOL! I certainly need more magazine storage…and these are gorgeous.

  • This is really inspiring :)

  • Magazines can look good even when being stored!

  • now that is some pretty organization…very happy you left this link. always makes me want to clean up my mags…love.

  • Wow, those powder blue, specially made floating shelves are FAB-U-LOUS! They really look cool. I’m a lover of having things looking organised and geometric, so their layout is very pleasing to my eye!

    Thanks so much for linking up to my bookcase linky with this terrific post and making me look less dorky! Gorgeous blog too!
