Dwell is one of my favorite shelter magazines, in part for providing informative, thoughtful, and succinct editorial and in part for showcasing coveted modern homes. But since I'm not on the house hunt or looking to make any architectural renovations, for me it's mostly a leisure read. When it comes to DIY projects, I tend to head to ReadyMade or read websites like Craftzine.
So, I'm delighted to announce that Dwell is making its foray into the DIY world. The mag has just unveiled its first special interest publication, Make It Yours, which expands on the topics of home décor and design with tips, tactics, and small- and large-scale projects to make the look of Dwell's coveted homes accessible and replicable for its readers. The publication will draw from Dwell's extensive image archive and divide them by zone — kitchens, bathrooms, etc. — and then dissect "each image for design ideas, sustainability, cost-efficiency, and style savvy," according to editor-in-chief Sam Grawe. Beyond that, it will act as a shopping guide, with the latest offerings in furniture, products, and materials needed to achieve Dwell's style. Look for Make It Yours on newsstands Sept. 22.
