Style Scouting: Vol. 183

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

Traditional Home Magazine cover Spring 2024

Many years ago I used to buy every decorating magazine there was on a monthly basis. I no longer do this as the prices of the publications are no longer only a few dollars, many are around $15 now as is the spring issue of Traditional Home Magazine shown in the photo above.

I still like to find inspiration and browse through the magazines on the racks when I wait in the check-out line at the grocery store. When I enjoy this past-time, I always remember the advice of my friend, Karen who is like you and I – we like decorating, pretty things and being creative.

She told me that when she browses through the decorating and lifestyle magazines she will only buy it if at least 3 things caught her eye so much that she wanted to read more.

I do this now myself and haven’t bought a magazine in quite a while, but this week I did. I saw more than 3 articles that inspired me in Traditional Home, especially the home on the cover in the article entitled, The Power of Pretty.

I like the home so much that when I got home I took notes on how I can add a little bit of the styling to my home. Do you ever do this when you see decor on the pages of a magazine that make your heart go pitter-patter?

So stay tuned to see more blues in my decorating projects over the spring and summer.

Now onto the other inspiring links I found this week.

  1. You can read lots of magazines online through your library, or if you have Kindle Unlimited, it’s part of your subscription.

      Hi Pegg – Thank you so much for reminding me about using my library for magazines! I have to get in the habit checking on my library app each month.:-).

  2. Hi Diane – You should subscribe to Traditional Home. I just paid $20 for one year – could have gotten 2 years for $30. It’s a nice magazine.
    I particularly enjoy your Sunday posts. So many great things to check out! Thanks for all the inspiration.

      Thanks for that idea Kate – I should subscribe as $20 for the year sure beats $15 for one issue. I love reading that you enjoy my Style Scouting posts.I enjoy finding the links every week. I never know what I will find, but enjoy the thrill of the hunt. :-)

  3. Diane, my favorite time of the week is Sunday mornings! Fresh coffee and I open up your email …. I spend at least a quiet, blissful hour sipping and browsing and soaking up all the beautiful links you provide. Thank you!!!
