I have a question for you… Where do you store your magazines?

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>If you’re like me, you have hoards of these well-thumbed resources. When I lived in Holland, I had my magazines lined up in neat rows (in magazine boxes divided by season) stacked on shelves built into my attic walls. Now that I’ve moved to Berlin and live in an apartment with virtually no storage, I’m at a loss on where to put my precious babies as I ran out of bookshelves long before I’d unpacked all the boxes of books.

I sorted through stacks of publications, giving away more than half my collection but am still left with loads of periodicals I can’t part with. I read and re-read shelter and design magazines, thumbing through the pages, picking pictures that inspire me both professionally and personally with new ideas and projects. As an American living abroad, English language publications are at a premium and thus I tend to save more magazines than I did when I lived in the States.

An old chicken coop becomes a clever space for storing magazines. This piece was stripped and cleaned to reveal its old, mellow wood finish. A collection of weather vanes and a lead window frame cozy up a corner.

While browsing Country Home recently I saw this torage-solutions_ss4.html?sssdmh=dm17.361771&esrc=nwch31_09&email=1432435154″ target=”_blank”>genius storage solution (coop above) for storing old magazines and wondered how you store your magazines. Do you do anything as clever as this?

At present, I must admit that my maggys are stacked underneath a baroque bench in my library-cum-office and while this isn’t an ideal solution it does at least provide a temporary solution until I stumble upon a diva-worthy storage solution that will work in my home office!

Look down low… bottom right… my maggy’s are peeking out from beneath the settee! By the way, the turquoise chair near the window is where I sit right now writing today’s blog – my husband and I call this pair of Baroque chairs at opposite ends of the table The Lord & The Lady.

Happy Reading Diva Readers!

Until next time, Tschüss!
