I am a minimal person by nature. My closet is not full to the max, my apartment is very muted, and I do not buy more makeup, hair products, or toiletries until I’ve used up what I already have. I literally have one of everything (for the most part). But for some reason I have the most difficult time getting rid of my magazines, I always feel like I’ll need to reference something in them one day.
About six months ago I got rid of almost 100 magazines and I’ve accumulated too many more already. I’m not ready to part with my new pile just yet so I’ve come up with a good way to put them to use and justify the stash hiding under my desk.
I get so much inspiration from magazines it is hard not to frame every single thing. I try to stick to things that make me do a triple take. It can be story bylines, photos, an add, or an extra special clothing, shoe,or accessory item. I am mostly drawn to black and photos and print. The models usually look androgynous or made way down. I like fonts that are clean and precise, not too fussy. The frames I use are all inexpensive and in black, silver, and gold.
I’ve framed a few photos to spruce up my desk and serve as inspiration while I’m working. The best part about this decor trick is I can interchange the photos whenever I feel inspired by something new.
