From the Stacks: New Series

My husband was skeptical. "No, really, I still look at these old magazines and tear sheets."

"Even the ones in the attic?"

Yes.

And, now I blog about them too. This new series might last a while. I haven't even opened the box of British Home & Garden from the 90's.
These images are the front and back of a tear sheet. Source, designer and photographer not known. The magazine paper was impressively heavy though.

(*I always try to give credit to images. If anyone knows who this might be, let me know if you have a chance.)

This is one of my favorite series already! I love looking through old shelter mags.

Oh, this is such a great idea for a series. I have so many magazines even I have been questioning if I really "need" them. But I just cannot bear to part with them.

michelle, I'm very drawn to the artwork in the first image. I am saving several similar nude sketches for my bedroom if I EVER get it done!

just had this conversation with my friend last night. Magazine management and how we like to look at old issues --but the hubs just don't get it :)

Fabulous idea for a series. I love old magazine pages. I don't keep whole magazines generally. I love finding unexpected inspiration on the back side of a page I filed.

Funny, I had a very similar conversation with my boyfriend over the weekend about all the back issues of magazines I have around the house. Our new puppy has been getting into them and tearing them up. I had to give very strict instructions not to throw them away no matter what! Karen at www. AureliaInteriors.com

Michele-
Great idea! For all of us!
I love to go through old magazines. Things really haven't changed that much in the traditional sense, with the exception of color.
Can't wait to see more.

Looking incredibly beautful and timeless for being from the 80's.........these rooms could pass muster still. I think my guys here were hoping I would never purge my collection of over 1,000 decor mags, but I did last years and they got them out of here to wherever these mags go. Looking forward to the 90's too. XO

It is a testament to trully chic spaces... they do stand the test of time, even if forgotten.

I think most of us bloggers started as tear sheet fanatics! I have tried to whittle mine down over the years but there are some magazines that are just SO good I have to keep the entire issue.

This should be FUN! Oh...this decor reminds me of Frank Faulkner...just a shot in the dark.

Love the sound of this new series! I too have stacks and have moved them to shelves upstairs so I don't have to hear a word from the husband... they're nice and safe up there... just not at my fingertips.
Looking forward to more,
Jan

My husband just looks at my stacks and shakes his head. He has given up mentioning them.

I love the photo on the wall in the last picture of the hands clasping each other!

I loved British Home and Garden in the 90's. Wish I still had them. I'm sure I will enjoy and appreciate what you share.

These images look like they could be straight out of a magazine today. Swear. As I told you...I finally ditched all or most of mine because it was just too out of hand.....I will just wait for you to keep posting these great shots.

Cote de Texas said...

me too, me too. i even buy "old magazines" from ebay.

The mystery images are from Veranda (the tip-off is that quality paper stock!), probably around 2005. They are from a wonderful feature on Richard Shapiro's L.A. home. The article is entitled "Edgy: Daring Dialogue." I clipped the entire article because the photos are so glorious. These rooms still appeal to me. Enjoy! ddu
