{Living Etc September 2010}

Coffee brewed? Comfy? This one's a bumper review! Well, it's a September issue, so how could it not be?! Let's get this show on the road, there's page after page of eye candy to devour. So, first up, the cover. I know, that wallpaper knocked me for six too; I'm really into cherry blossom at the moment and plus, aren't those brown colourways perfect for fall? You can check it out sans front cover type lower down (6). Early on we're treated to a statement yellow sofa (2) and a super douper affordable anglepoise-style floor lamp for £125 (sidenote - there's also a 'design classic' editorial on the anglepoise, too (4)). Up next we dive straight into a home tour (3) that "any James Bond villain would be proud of" and trust me, it's dark, moody and seductive. The spread (5, 6, 7) that follows - Decorating with Paintbox Florals - is one of the stand out editorials of the issue...those pendant shades are divine! There's a piece on using wooden furniture (8) in the home and monochrome lovers will enjoy the home tour (9) that follows. Still with me? Told you it was a goodun'! Ok, so there's a darling feature on creative work spaces (10) which is bursting with inspiration for anyone overhauling their home office. I had to post these fun pages on home organisation (11, 12); isn't that aircraft case a brilliant and quirky idea for home storage?! The final home tour is courtesy of Paola Navone's Milanese home, which demonstrates beautiful use of greens (13) and blues (14). A touch of practicality is offered for anyone looking to add a modern extension (15) and the ever-so-talented Living Etc team round things off with an interview with Kelly Wearstler. Right, I'll zip it and let you devour the visual goodness before you buy, buy, buy it!

  1. Love the yellow sofa and the bedroom with the fireplace is dreamy! Oh I'm desperate to get my hands on this issue! Too bad we're a month behind so I likely won't see it until closer to Sept. So sad. I'll be sure to have a look online though to get more of a fix. Thanks for the sneak peak Will!

  22. ooooh! Livingetc is always my go-to mag when I'm spending my time in Ireland and this issue sure doesn't disappoint! Love the big floral pendants against that brick wall, the cherry blossom wallpaper and the industrial touches like that wheeled cabinet (is that from an airplane?). I definitely need to pick up this issue! : )

  26. There's so much to love here. My favorites are the 'neat and tidy' spread and the interview with Kelly Wearstler. I like The Killers, too, but it's funny how she calls other designers' merchandise pricey. :)

  32. Hi Everyone,
    I'm the News & Travel Editor at Livingetc, thank you for all your positive feedback. It's great to hear that you like what we're doing.

    A lot of you seem to like the Kelly Wearstler piece - is there anyone else you'd love us to profile?

    And if you know of any cool Livingetc style houses, we're always interested to see them!

  33. Yeah! So pleased everyone is as pumped about this issue as I am. The floral pendant shades and the exposed brick wall combo is fast becoming my fave shot of the whole issue. Roll on October...!

    Bethan - Thanks for stopping by the blog. I'd love for you to feature Nate Burkus - he's got great style and has his own TV show starting in the States this September!
