Flowers and Fabric

BLOOM : a horti-cultural view.
Bloom was created in 1998, in response to the ever-growing lifestyles inspired by trends in flowers, plants and gardening. Bloom is the first magazine of its kind, filled with informative and inspirational photography and reports on the major trends in this area, and how this relates to fashion, interiors, design, packaging ,cosmetics, food and culture. Bloom speaks to all levels of the industry, from hybrid creators to growers, buyers, distributors and florists, as well as to the general public at large.

Launched in 2004, Selvedge offers the world’s finest textile photography, unparalleled design and peerless writing
Open a copy of Selvedge and you sense there is a philosophy that readers subscribe to. A belief system based on a cerebral and sensual addiction to textiles in all forms. Readers share a belief in the importance of their material surroundings and a passion for the beautiful and beautifully made.

These are two of my favorite magazines - they are hard to come by - but if you ever feel like splurging on the good stuff, subscribe to one (or both!) of these. You will refer to them over and over and get all sorts of inspiration and ideas.
