This magazine is in a completely different sphere from the majority of the home improvement magazines. Not only is in pan-European but it concentrates more on the cutting edge of design and architecture. I first discovered in when helping with a translation job for a lighting company and have found it to be great for someone who is thinking about how to do up a flat, and for whom a home is more than merely a place to eat and sleep. Working from my flat, I need the place to look professional, whilst not losing the homely touch. Wallpaper offers the best information, tips and whilst it is not really of interest to your DIY fans it has a certain appeal to anyone wanting to make their home classy. Many people claim that Wallpaper is expensive, but at GBP3.60 every two months I find this claim hard to substantiate. Female visitors to my flat also seem to love it that I seem to care about the appearance of my flat.
I’ve been buying this magazine from the first issue. The subtitle on the cover say ‘the stuff that surrounds you’ and that’s basically what it covers. I’m very interested in design which is why I first bought it and when so many magazines look the same & have similar formats, this seem to have something a bit different. It is expensive but is also a very thick magazine and I’ve found myself looking a articles a month after I’ve bought it. Once again many of the adverts & products described are aimed at those with a pretty affluent lifestyle (I can but dream) and it is very stylish, slick & glossy. However, the articles are well-written and informative, featuring subjects such as architecture, design & art in a very accessible way. The photography and illustration are superb. Most of all, the feature I like is its global nature – reports & articles come from all over the world, featuring food, design and architecture from many places.
