I've blogged a gazillion times about my love for World of Interiors and the article in April's edition about celebrated horticulturalist Valerie Finnis pretty much epitomizes my fondness for this publication.
Magazines usually cultivate want. But WoI is not necessarily about wanting to live in these spaces, or even about replicating their look. These amazing images inspire me in a deeper, more pervasive way; to be brazenly self-expressive and trust that style and beauty will come of that.
