Rita Konig definitely knows style - so it's intriguing to know which magazines and design books she goes to for inspiration and ideas. The former Domino Editor-at-Large and current blogger for T Magazine shared a quick list of her favorites…

… with Fallon of A Lovely Being, as part of an in-depth interview.

Here's the excerpt featuring Rita's favorites:

I love the World of Interiors, always. I used to love Australian Vogue Living, and I still do sometimes. Spanish Architectural Design is great. And French Marie Claire Maison is very good. I've just been given a new book by Lars Bolander called Scandinavian Design, which is wonderful. It's archived photographs of Scandinavian homes from the sixteenth century to now. I'm very interested by that clean look.. It's not something that I naturally know how to do. It's fun to be able to pour over things like that and to see what elements you can take from it. I love Thomas O'Brien's book, too, because he also does that very clean white look. Right now, I enjoy studying how one can do a white room that is interesting and keep it interesting without seeming flat.

(Quick side note - I totally concur on the Thomas O'Brien book, American Modern - I've been looking at it regularly since picking it up a few months ago.)
