While you’re waiting for your new house to complete, there’s not a lot you can do, so it’s a good excuse to sit down with a stack of magazines. Living Etc is a personal favourite, but I also love House & Garden and Vogue Living. Before starting No 93, I clipped out a few pages for inspiration – and when I dug them out again four months later, was quite surprised how much we’d stuck to them without consciously trying. Power of the page!
