advent season: day seventeen; apartamento in your stocking

there is a week to go until christmas, and if you're totally stuck on presents and willing to throw money at the situation, or indeed if you feel like treating to yourself to a little something after all of the inevitble rushing, you must, you must find yourself a copy of apartamento.



i found myself flicking through the delight of an interiors magazine during my last trip to london, and i can safely say that it is the best out there; for design nerds, it's fabulous content matches it's knee quiver inducing layout. all



shot using a "like totally grainy camera, man", the overall quality of the magazine is hazy magnificence.With inspiring articles about the editor of interview magazine who lives in a cottage in the heart of nyc's west village (?!) and about an anti squatters global organisation that can see you room sharing in beautiful derelict buildings, you'll finish reading with your jaw slack. and a newfound passion to live like a "total free spirit, man".


it's £10 for the magazine, which yes is steep, but i put my hand on my heart and urge you to go ahead anyway. buy a stack and give one to each of your friends, roll it up and put in a stocking, or keep it all to yourself!

this magazine looks beautiful. love looking at interiors/design.

i'm still hoping that someone will pop a copy of muse magazine (coco issue) or lula (kirsten dunst) in my stocking. very unlikely though.

This looks so gorgeous... Everything actually looks lived in and like a home! I wonder if I can get it in my little local magshop? (damn living in new zealand!)

This is all well and good, but I'm afraid if I were to purchase it it would turn out affecting me like a paper version of The Selby - making me depressed about how grotty my student flat is. Bastards.

What a great magazine!
The price is a bit...much, but looks like it would be a worthy purchase.
