Default Good home decor magazines?

I was curious if anyone has found any home decor magazines they really like?

I've watched the decorating shows for years but it might also be nice to have magazines to flip through and cut out little samples of colours and looks for our "new house" binder.

It really depends on your style...Country? Traditional? Modern?
Go to Chapters and browse them.
I, personally, love all the decor magazines but any Modern style ones.
My favorites are, House & Home, Style At Home, Country Living, Traditional Homes and Better Homes and Gardens. Better Homes and Gardens also publishes other magazines like "Beautiful Homes" and "Renovation Style" that also offer great ideas, but the magazines themselves are more pricey, $7.99 to $9.99, because they are only published quarterly.
Another good resource are catalogues from Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. You don't need to purchase from them to request a catalogue and often you can find a similar looking peice to one from PB or Restoration for cheaper elsewhere.
Have Fun.

There's lots of magazines out there but it all depends on your style.
As for me I like to look through www.touchofclass.com for inspiration, It gives me ideas and what to shop for.
