Lately, I have been drawn to the idea of using National Geographic magazines as decor. Look how amazing the yellow spines look on these book shelves and occasional tables. After spending half my life looking for leather-bound books and other hardcovers for client projects, the thought of eating up a big chunk of shelf space with these iconic magazines is very appealing.
I have a new client that actually works at National Geographic so maybe I can talk him into borrowing a bunch of old issues for his home. There is one built-in shelf that would look amazing with blocks of bright yellow splashed across it. We haven’t even broken ground on his project yet but I am already accessorizing it in my head. Cart before the horse.
