The economy is playing havoc on the publishing industry, in particular, magazines. When Washington Spaces magazine announced late last year they were ceasing publication of their magazine, I was heartbroken. As much as I love the internet, I prefer holding the magazine in my lap and perusing each page as I take-in all the design wonderment the photos have to offer.
My saving grace is that Washington Spaces magazine lives-on in web format for one more month. And I happily discovered tonight their Winter 2010 issue online.
It will make it easier for me to save images in my inspiration file I maintain in iPhoto.
The scale of the mirror in comparison to the sink and cabinet is truly eye-catching. I am in the habit of filling out the wall with a mirror according to the width of the cabinet/sink. Although this may not be a new concept to an interior designer in terms of scaling down the size of the mirror, it is definitely new to me.
Recently, I read where it was suggested to go tall with the mirror, nearly to ceiling height, for a different look. I definitely want to give this a try.
The article on Make Space for What Matters has me intrigued by the closet with two different types of ceiling light fixtures. I'm not sure if I like this or not but it certainly has me thinking outside the box.
Wined & Designed displays a wine cellar that is not pretentious or over-the-top. Very practical for wine storage. It is motivating me to go into our basement and clear out the storage closet to convert it into wine storage.
Then what would I do with my boxes of coffee mugs, stacks of puzzles or all those Beanie Babies I had to have? It's a sad state of affairs in our basement storage closet. So the idea of a wine storage closet is purely a dream at this point.
This is what I love about magazines. The joy and inspiration I savor with every turn of the page. I'm going to miss this magazine.
