When it comes to design inspiration, there is one publication we turn to every day at Apartment Therapy's offices: The New York Times. Sure, we read it for the hard-hitting news, but it's the design inspiration that earns this publication a spot on this startup's small office meeting table every morning.
We love when Thursdays roll around each week, because we know we're bound to find something cool to blog about from the Home section of The New York Times. Covering a wide range of topics including architecture, interior design, gardening, home repair, and furniture, the Home section is a definite must-read source when we're looking for current news, cool digs, and inspiring ideas for the home. And did we mention the Thursday Styles pages?
But wait a second, design in The New York Times is so much more than the Home section. More than one of us has coveted settings in Dining In/Dining Out, found a new color element or theme in The Arts, and even in Travel. Certain un-named staff members subscribe just so they won't miss the gorgeous T Magazine, which rightly deserves both coffee table and archive rights in any home.
If you've somehow missed just how much Apartment Therapy loves The New York Times for design, here are just a few of their articles we couldn't help but share with you recently:
• Living with Less: Survival Strategies
• Patterned Apartment in Paris
• A Minimalist Soho Loft
• Livingston Taylor's Teeny-Tiny Cabin
• Gap House by Pitman Tozer Architects
• Garden Tour: Year-Round Designs of Piet Oudolf
Creating a beautiful home doesn't require large amounts of money or space. It requires inspiration, connection to resources and time and motivation to do something about it. Hence, The New York Times. Thoroughly enjoyable, undeniably resourceful and 100% recyclable, The New York Times is one of life's little luxuries we can't live without. That and a good cup of coffee (tea if you like), and we're off to explore a world of design possibilities.
For the next two weeks only, The New York Times is offering Apartment Therapy readers a special discount. To boot, the first 50 subscribers will receive a copy of Apartment Therapy Presents: Real homes, Real people, Hundreds of Real Design Solutions. For as little as $3.70 a week, there's no excuse.
