I spent a couple of hours "idea harvesting"
at Barnes and Noble this afternoon.
I was pleasantly surprised by the number of new magazines on the stands, and
(though I shouldn't have been)
by how many Christmas issues there were already.
I was attracted to the first photo because of the layers of color,
textures, and patterns. The room is full and interesting, in my opinion.
The last photo was attractive to me because of its simplicity.
If I remember correctly, it appeared in an article about
savoring silence and "alone" time during the holiday season.
As usual, I returned home with fresh ideas
and enthusiasm to tweak my personal surroundings.
With many decorating blogs becoming so cluttered
and many resorting to advertising,
I found the current magazines an enjoyable alternative today!
