Living Outside THE City

So now that we’re officially leaving NYC and moving to Charleston, I’m going to have to change a couple of things – specifically in the world of blog inspiration I will have to change my access to some of my favorite interiors magazines. Most of you know that in THE city, magazines come out a day earlier than they do anywhere else, so if you want to be the first to see it, best to buy it and not have a subscription. So when it comes to House Beautiful, Elle Decor, Vanity Fair, Vogue etc. etc. best to just go to your magazine guy and buy it the day it comes out. For my other favorite magazines, which are all from overseas, I had this amazing magazine store in SoHo which always stocked Marie Claire Maison, Elle Decoration UK, and Vogue Living Australia, so I would pop in and buy all of those every month. I can’t get these magazines in Charleston, so it looks like subscriptions for me! However, one thing I can get in Charleston, which I have been consistently surprised with of late, is Country Living. 

 These minimalist interiors almost have the feel of many of the interiors I love in the foreign publications! And this is in a former blacksmith shop in the countryside outside of NYC.

Although I will be sad to leave my little magazine bodegas with Marie Claire Maison at my fingertips, and resign myself to waiting for the mailman, Charleston definitely has some good magazines to offer … and plus, its Charleston.
