Apartamento has become my favorite magazine over the past year or so, probably because it’s the only interiors mag I’ve seen that manages to keep shit unpretentious. Most interior design publications focus on modern minimalist spaces that don’t look like anyone’s real life living quarters. Simply, Apartamento delivers interesting people, and a look at how what they do manifests throughout the places they live.
There’s a softness to Apartamento which is aided by the matte pages and bookish format. That muted tone allows the Barcelona-based magazine to present subjects like Swedish ceramic artist Lisa Larson with equal admiration as it does Hermes creative director Christophe Lemaire and Spring Breakers star Rachel Korine. The only overriding theme to Apartamento is exploring the varying degrees of whim that accompany the lives and homes of artists.
Apartamento is available at a variety of U.S. and international retailers. Pick up a copy. Get inspired. -Angelo
