Redundant but amazing

I’m sure half of my blog readers also read Lonny {everything looked great, my taste is all over the place} but I can never get enough of a good thing. I had a chance to fly through their newest magazine last night!  They never disappoint. It’s no secret that I love Ruthie Sommer’s work, so I enjoyed seeing more shots of her gorgeous home. It’s a beautifully layered, graphic conglomeration of objects, textiles and furniture. My firm is very busy, which I guess is a good thing. I promise to pick up the blog posts next week.  The above entry is very Dorothy Draper, don’t you think???
p.s. I think I need to hire an intern this Fall!!

Could you live with this room??

They did it again…

I gobbled up every bit of the new issue of Trad home last night. The latest online magazine collaboration between Lonny’s creative team and Traditional Home did not disappoint. I loved reading about each and every one of the “20 New Traditionals” they selected. I’m sure most of you spent a few moments {or hours} last night checking it out yourselves, but how could I fail to mention the home above? It’s gorgeous. I love the finishes, refined color palette, vignettes, and vintage finds incorporated; every last detail is wonderful. For more on the designers, Amanda Malson’s home , and Domicile Interior Designs work visit their site here.

{Melisssa Warner’s home, of Massucco, Warner, Miller in this month’s H.B.}I find most of my readers are pretty design savvy, so you may have seen these photos in your own publications..but I find I can continually absorb the same amazing rooms again and again! Here are some photos of recent favorites! I’m drawn and often design classically modern spaces, rooms that draw inspiration from the past but incorporate a blend of updated older pieces with a unexpected modern twist speak to me and inform my own work. Lonny Magazine is a breath of fresh air..hopefully they’ll come out with a paper version at some point. They are taking contributions on their site, I’m going to donate to this worth while read! A big thank you to Michelle and Patrick and all the contributors for continually wowing us with your amazing publication!
