House & Garden magazine closes
On a sad note this morning, Conde Naste Publications annouced yesterday the closing of one of our country’s oldest magazines, House & Garden. Since 1901, they have been the source for modern shelter design and sparked the onslaught of dozens of other interiors magazines in the years to follow. This comes as particularly upsetting news to me and other daily readers of Grace’s blog, Design*Sponge. Fellow blogger, and my personal inspiration for entering into this field, Grace has been working for H&G over the past two years while still avidly maintaining her personal site Design*Sponge Online. Our thoughts go out to Grace, and to the entire House & Garden team as they say goodbye and look for new beginnings.
