goodbye met home

My taste in interiors is constantly evolving, which is why one of my favorite pastimes is flipping though old issues of my overwhelmingly large (I can't stand throwing the away!) shelter magazine collection. I am always shocked to see which pages I dog eared and equally so by the ones I didn't. I was doing just this a couple weeks ago and found a renewed love for Metropolitan Home. So I thought I would share the pages that I tore out in my recent peruse through the met home archives.
I was amazed by how many designers that I was introduced to though those pages, the lust worthy furnishings and the diversity of the styles that were showcased.

Which is why was deeply saddened when this publication announced yesterday that it was closing its doors.

(all scanned via various issues of Metropolitan Home)
Goodbye Metropolitan Home and thank you for the glossy pages of inspiration!

Such gorgeous photo-spreads! It is always sad when magazines end their run, but thankfully you have plenty of old issues to go through! XOXO

I'm so glad you posted these! It's so sad to see another shelter mag go under :(

I love the top, left image - the mirror is fantastic. And of course the pink in the bottom two is hard for me to resist!

So pretty! Thanks for sharing. I was never a big Met Home reader so I'm afraid I missed out on a lot of pretty interiors. So sad when a magazine closes it's doors...

I've been keeping an inspiration scrap book for 2 years now (I was running out of room for all the magazine stacks) and I agree, it's funny to see what I used to like!

I am dreaming of publication rejuvenation in coming months and of new copies of my favorite (recently cancelled) magazines on my coffee table. *sigh* Every time I hear the news that another magazine closing its doors my heart hurts a little.

PS: this collection of photos is lovely.
