I never thought this was a sentence I would type but...
I can't stop buying magazines.
I don't mean fashion mags or gossip mags or entertainment mags.
I mean house design.
I haven't even read all the way through the last one before I'm buying the next.
I don't know where this has come from.
I guess my frustrated 'must... build... lovely... home...' desires are bubbling over into an uncontrollable acquisition of house porn to gaze at covetously.
Some of it I look at and know that I would rather walk face-first into a cement pylon without flinching rather than have it in my home but it gives me ideas.
Even if it's ideas on things I never want in my own house.
Those ideas are just as, if not more, useful than ideas of things that I do want in my own house.
Ruling things out makes your vision clearer.
It's a bit of a bugger because the mags themselves aren't what you'd call super cheap and the seeds that they're planting in my mind will probably fruit into an incredibly expensive crop if I go through with some of these design ideas.
But I can't stop.
They're just so pretty.
