Four of Australia's Best Interior Design Publications To Help You Create Your Home Space

Interior design is not for the weak-hearted. To make an impact, you have to have courage, dedication and an eye for detail. Without these things, homes and office buildings run the risk of looking drab and uninviting. If you want to impress clients with your uncanny knack for design, then take a lesson from some of the best Australian design publications available.

House and Garden

Sometimes it can be hard to thumb through magazines for inspiration, especially when the items used in print are in reality hard to find. But such is not the case with the Australia's House and Garden magazine and online store. This Australian native has been proudly furnishing homes and businesses in the area for over 30 years selling only the highest-quality products at the lowest possible prices. But don't worry if purchasing online isn't to your liking. House and Garden also has brick-and-mortar stores where you can see, feel and smell the items you plan to use in your next venture. Their expert design staff can answer questions or help brainstorm design ideas, too, for those times when a little collaboration is called for.

You can also receive a monthly subscription to the magazine which will provide you with back stage access to some of the world's best and most beautiful homes. You will get expert advice about home design trends as well, with an option to purchase many of the items you see.

Real Living Magazine

Real Living is a magazine that is published monthly (though current information and new ideas are conveyed almost instantly via social media or their home page). It is a magazine that strives to produce the best ideas for the home including recipes, decorating advice and craft ideas. They've even got gift-giving covered with their Real Living shop.

Unlike many other home design magazines, Real Living offers step-by-step guides to designing your home - and your life - around the things that matter most. You will learn how to garden, conserve energy and entertain with ease thanks to their many how-to blogs and advice columns. Choose your destination based on the type of room you want to refurbish or head straight for the advice column to learn from the pros.
