I absolutely love this magazine. I look forward to sitting and enjoying it every month. I only wish it would be a weekly magazine because I can't wait for the next edition. I use so many ideas from Romantic Homes. Keep those great ideas coming.
I have been reading this magazine and love it. Perfect for those of us who decorate in the shabby,cottage, romantic or new cottage style. There has recently been a change in editors or something like that and i see quite a difference in the magazine lately. Not too happy about it. It used to have great decorating ideas for the average person. Now their showing us castles etc. And pages of retailers with yarn shops,not to mention all the gardens. Pages wasted as far as i am concerned. A little was fine but pages and pages. I don't know if i will continue to buy, probably give it another month or 2 to see. Worth checking out to see if it is for you.
This magazine has more to offer (& far fewer ads) than any other "home" magazine. It's up-to-date & informative. Then there's all the beautiful pictures and...and...and... well, it's the best...period.
I still haven't quite gotten over the demise of Victoria magazine but Romantic Homes has helped. The photography is not as beautiful but the ideas shown offer possibilities an average person (i.e. not wealthy) might incorporate into one's home. At first the designs seemed primarily shabby chic and while there is still a lot of white rooms portrayed more color and variety has improved the spreads. I would like to see more garden articles.
I've loved this magazine since a teenage girl. My mom and I would pore over every isssue and save them all. However, I have been disappointed lately with all the changes. It's just not the same. I have not renewed my subscription because I don't want to waste my money on a magazine of which I only like two pages. I will only buy off the newsstand so as to be sure of liking the issue. I still have all the old issues and read them over and over. I miss the old Romantic Homes!
