Can any recommend a good magazine to give me ideas for home decoration?
I did some googling and found a few , but I thought of asking you guys first to see if you recommend any?

bump -- I'm wondering the same.

Or is there an interior design thread on Mumsnet?

I like "Living"

I like 25 beautiful homes, because really I just like to nose at other people's houses...

Good Homes is pretty good I think, I'm not so keen on Living as I find it a bit up it's own arse clinical.

Homes and Gardens and Living. Sometimes Elle Decoration but it's expensive so only buy after having a skim through

I get Ideal Homes and Home Beautiful - they are both good, both have ideas in them that don't cost a fortune (as well as the expensive stuff) and a mixture of different types of homes to look at.

Some of the others are so up-themselves. Just my opinion though!

Also a fan of Ideal Home. I used to read Living a few years back, but got a copy recently and either I'd moved on in my tastes (older in years now!) or it's become too cutting edge. Very 'clinical' as a pp said.

The mix of names of the couples in Living used to make me laugh though, they'd give the baby name board a run for its money! Like "Tarquinella and her partner Owen converted these public conveniences into a minimalist echo of post WW2 society. Tarquinella designs and runs her very successful meditation company, whilst Owen hand crafts wooden furniture using medieval tools."

Not a magazine but I love can access via an app or internet.

I get ideal home and good homes

They are my treats and nobody is allowed to touch them

Get a bit annoyed that ideal home re-uses pictures in its "specials" but I guess this is something all magazines do (?)

I like Ideal Home because I love to look at floorplans

I like living etc, 25 Beautiful homes and ideal homes. All good in different ways. Blogs and pinterest can be good too.

Pinterest, apartment therapy and house and home are all online and great. I get lots of ideas and inspiration from these without having to fork out fo rmagazines that I then have to store. If I see something I like I right click and save image ot my PC. I then have my own 'custom' interior design magazine on my laptop.
