Home decor magazines are being replaced by the internet today which has made life so much easier. It is cheaper and easier to look at Pinterest for your creative ideas than to go through many decor magazines to find the look. But there is something about finding a special place to escape and read your favorite magazine which is why I wanted to share my top 10 favorite home decor magazines.
How special it is nowadays to get a magazine subscription. It is pretty cool and fun to get them in the mail which is, even more, a reason why I was excited to share my top 10 favorite home decor magazines.

TOP 10 FAVORITE HOME DECOR MAGAZINES
I am all about doing one little thing every day that makes you feel special. Some of my favorite things to do are a hot bath while looking at a magazine, going for a walk, or watching my favorite television show.
I think we all need a moment or two to decompress every day.
Home decorating magazines are great for relaxing but they are also amazing at giving you very good home decor content. You can learn so much from an interior decorating magazine. But what are the best home decor magazines?
WHAT ARE THE BEST HOME DECORATING MAGAZINES?
I have gotten some great inspiration from decor magazines from container flower gardening to painting projects. Early in my interior design career, I used to pull pages of magazines with inspiration, ideas, and DIY's to assist me in designing a beautiful home or give to my clients so they could see what I am referring to.
After years of using magazines to decorate homes here are my top go-to design magazines along with a few newer magazines that have caught my eye.
MARTHA STEWART LIVING
Okay, so if you're a less is more kind of person and have a love for retro then this is the magazine for you.
I love Martha Stewart Living!
You get more than just decor magazines. You will get inspiration from craft projects, recipes, gardening, entertaining and so much more. You will feel special just reading it, and will be inspired by something within its pages.
Click Martha Steward Living if this magazine describes you and you would like some inspiration.
Here is another magazine that plays on the less is more kind of style.
Unlike so many other home decor magazines this one throws in some beauty tips too.
Real Simple is another magazine that will inspire you to make your life more comfortable in a very fashionable way with DIY, recipes and so much more.
Click Real Simple magazine if you feel this is a good fit and I can't wait to hear how it inspired you in your home and life.
THIS OLD HOUSE
Lovers of all things old, this is the magazine for you.
This magazine keeps it real with tips and tricks for remodeling, gardening and much more. This magazine is so helpful whether you live in an old house or want to make your new home look old.
Click This Old House for loads of vintage inspiration, and I hope it helps bring that old soul out of you too.
THE ENGLISH HOME MAGAZINE
Talk about special! If you're looking for a magazine to escape into, then this is the one for you.
In the old country, there is plenty of vintage stuff which makes this magazine perfect if you're an old soul too. One thing I love about this magazine is I always get vintage ideas to incorporate into my home and some fun ideas also.
Good design is comprised of old and new. So, why not something English in that design.
Click English Home magazine for a subscription that will give you that great escape across the ocean to another world.
Today country interior designs are trendy in the South.
I see so many homes incorporating the farmhouse style into their modern-day homes. This magazine is full of ideas to dream about which makes it perfect if you want to escape into the country during your me-time.
Southern Living was the magazine subscription to have when I was growing up.
Southern Living has much to offer any reader. You will find it well balanced between home decor, recipes, entertaining, travel in the south, and much more.
Some of the best places to visit in the Southern states you will find in this magazine.
I also love love, love that Southern Living has an Idea House for people to visit featuring a designer, contract, and architect. Southern Living is a fantastic magazine to escape into especially if you love southern style home decor and travel.
BETTER HOMES & GARDENS
Here is another magazine that was the magazine to subscribe to when I was growing up.
I always felt this magazine was a homemaker's best friend. It has beautiful home and garden ideas but also has excellent entertaining ideas and so much more.
Just like the name of this magazine is all about traditional homes.
If you are drawn to the classic style and living well, then I would highly recommend this magazine. First, let me say that this magazine has great interior design elements and will feed your creative juices.
I always considered Traditional Home and House Beautiful to be hand in hand.
But if there was one thing I can say that makes this magazine different is it has more contemporary qualities. So if you like a designer look with eclectic attributes, then this is your magazine.
COTTAGES AND BUNGALOWS
If you love cottage decorating then you will love this magazine! It is filled with beautiful countryside structures with vintage decorating ideas to modern amenities in old homes.
If you love quaint vintage vibe then try Cottages and Bungalows magazine.
COUNTRY SAMPLER FARMHOUSE STYLE
I kind of saved the best for last because Life on Summerhill was featured in this magazine. They shared my cotton decor tips.
Country Sampler Farmhouse Style is a fantastic farmhouse home decor magazine filled with beautiful homes that have old shiplap, vintage finds and so much more.
This magazine is for all farmhouse lovers. You will find many scrumptious farm style details on every page and ideas galore.
Can you tell I saved the high-end designer home magazines for last?
Veranda magazine is up there with Beverly Hills, and it just has an air of subtle detail. You will adore this magazine! There is something about it that makes me read it over and over again. You will find many ideas on Pinterest, but if you want a designer look, then this is the magazine to subscribe to.
If you're still wondering why you should subscribe to a magazine, then let me ask you a question. Do you like getting presents in the mail?
Well, a magazine subscription is like getting a present. You never know what will be inside the pages waiting for you. And who doesn't like feeling special?
Just grab yourself a cup of sweet tea or your favorite drink and find your favorite places like a hammock or a hot bath and let your magazine take you away. I promise you it will be great!
