Apartamento is amazing. I've been pouring over the latest issue since I got it last week. It's completely packed with interior design, fashion, fabrics, jewelry, furniture, and especially photography inspiration. That light-blasted photo of the woman on the couch with her cat? It's pretty much the best photo that I have seen in a long time and makes me want to take some new photos right now. This magazine makes me want to redecorate my apartment, go vintage shopping in New York, cook an amazing dinner over an open fire, and live in a rural part of Portugal with three cats and three dogs.
But it's not just the pictures that I'm hooked on. This issue is full of profiles on designers, creative homeowners, and even a pull-out section on studio style (including a family that weaves its own textile line) and a food zine called called "tutti frutti". My favourite interviews are the ones with older artists who can illuminate things like Italian furniture design in the '80s and legendary Sunday suppers in London. I love it and it's available here or if you live in Vancouver you can find it at the UBC Bookstore, Old Faithful in Gastown, or at the Inventory shop, which I have never even heard of and will have to check out now. Now to redecorate...after work, of course.
Oh yes, and I have a guest post at There & Here today. Take a look!
