I don't think a single edition of Lonny has ever been remotely as good as this one. Articles like Lonny Loves Sonia Nassery Cole is really a testament to how great Lonny has become, and what we should all be aspiring to do: combining the beautiful with the intelligent. This edition's marketplace altogether blew my mind. I discovered so many incredible artisans and shops that I can only dream of winning the lotto tomorrow and go on a shopping spree. Words are failing me to describe the level of amazement that happened here on Sunday.
1. Oh my, have you ever seen an office as perfect as Amanda Nisbet's? I am dying over every little detail: The wall covering, the citrine curtains, the brass lamp, the yellow lamp, the artwork, the magazine bookcases, the antique chairs, and of course that lucite desk!
2. Were you as amazed by Maison 140 Beverly Hills as I was? This makes me long for a self-indulgent holiday! Everything about this heritage home feels so elegant and beautifully upkept.
1. I really enjoyed the woodland retreat, especially the vignette below. The mad-men'esque mid-century home speaks of a forgotten way of life of cocktail parties and live music, while being perfectly suitable to a family of three children.
2. It's hard to say that everything was my style in Anna Burke's bohemian house, but I definitely loved the vibe and many of the space's accents: the art collection, the bright floral wallpaper, the brass cocktail cart, the intricate coffee table, the fiddle leaf fig, the bedlinen, bedside sconces, and headboard... The woman is definitely thrifty!
Is it just me or does this photo not feel very Lonny? Some of the interiors in the Duquette and Wilkinson article were great, but this one leaves me a little bleh... It also wasn't shot by Patrick Cline, and it shows! Did you know he shot in film? Yah, that's where the quality of the image comes from! Amazed.
often struggled to find the bad and ugly in each publication, not to mention how unfair it was to focus more on the bad than the good. Because of this, I decided to focus on the great, the good, and a just a little dash of ugly, because it's fun sometimes to point out obvious differences in taste.
