With the summer season officially over, September always reminds me of ‘back-to-school’ (even if I haven’t seen the inside of a classroom in decades.)

So true to form for my first September assignment, I have taken to the magazine stalls to find five tantalizing interiors with a home furnishing product for consideration from each – and as always I’m sharing three resources for each item with you.  This was a challenge, as there were so many beautiful homes featured in the current magazines.  Sometimes my job isn’t easy, but I have found my five to offer you here in this month’s resource feature.

As I continue to write these posts I am finding certain trends, but that may be for another story.

In the meantime, let’s get started.

Every month for ‘At The Newsstand’ I scour as many interior design and lifestyle magazines as possible looking for inspiring interiors with one standout piece, or even an overlooked item that may be out of fashion, but which still commands my attention.  They say a chair is a chair, but some are iconic, and derive their elegance from the technology which spawned them, or are so steeped in historical reference that they are both classic and timeless.

There are two such examples in this post, along with sliding barn doors, crystal chandeliers and whimsical shell-encrusted mirrors.  Nothing is spared my scrutiny to find new resources – many less obvious – for your perusal.

July is heavy on handmade custom furniture resources, with a touch of sleek  and whimsical thrown in for good measure.  Ultimately, there are few shortcuts in this industry when it comes to procuring quality.  I avail you of my curiosity to assist you in making the effort a little less time-consuming.

Welcome to my June 2013 edition of ‘At The Newsstand’, where I scrutinize the month’s shelter magazines looking for inspiring interiors, great products, and whatever else garners my attention.

From this month’s magazines I chose to highlight a few of my favorites from classical and oriental traditions.  As always with each find I provide you with three resources for your consideration in an attempt to assist you in the search for these wonderful objects.  Many of these featured accessories can certainly be found by hunting through antique shops and websites like 1st dibs and the like, but here I have looked for alternative ways as well to satisfy that desire to acquire them for your projects.

So let’s get started.

Welcome to my second edition of ‘At The Newsstand’, where I scrutinize the month’s design magazines looking for inspiring interiors, great products, and whatever else garnered my attention.

With this month’s stack at hand, I will again take a look at what I think is noteworthy, and pass it on to you.  I will be looking for new and innovative decorative furnishings, along with some of my favored home products.   As in the first in the series, with each item I identify, I will provide three new and possibly little-known resources.

My goal is to help you locate these ‘featured’ items and shorten the search for them.  So let’s ge to it.
