It feels as though we’ve only dipped our toes into 2011, so you’ll be forgiven for finding it hard to believe we’re already onto the second issues of the year. February’s offering from the stylish folks at Livingetc won’t disappoint – in fact, I think it’s one of their strongest issues in some time. Inside you’ll find: a fine example of what the team charmingly describe as ‘hunting-lodge chic’; twelve ideas for weekend updates; a knock out Manhattan apartment and one of my favourite features by the mag for some time: TV Presenter Ben Fogle and the eclectic, colourful home he shares with his wife. Their space details striking modern pieces that pop thanks to their bright hues, whilst vintage additions and worldly finds make for a cosy atmosphere – a grand home indeed! Be sure to pick up an issue to see their Classical Studies feature, tips on displaying books and a round up of the best metro tiles on the market. Oh, and in the meantime, why not pop over to their smashing blog?
