Corners of My Home

I love reading decorating magazines. Sure, I read them for ideas, or for keeping up with decorating trends, but mostly I read them for the "pretty pictures." They are a treat for my eyes, in ways that going to museums or shopping is. I don't need to acquire, I just like to look.

One of my newest ways to entertain my eyes is the Flickr pool Corners of My Home. The content is even better than a fashion magazine -- these are "real" homes, decorated by "real" people, not decorators.

The only downside is that it is all online -- I like looking at things on paper. Business idea for someone -- publish amateur homes photography into a magazine, use a business model like Taste of Home (subscriber content, no ads) or an ad revenue based model to make money and pay your contributors a bit.
