Gorgeous interiors, Clueless references, oh Lonny Magazine, let me count the ways I love you. I know that Lonny is rocking my world, because I actually read the articles instead of just looking at the pictures. Reading the text allows me to see little tidbits of design goodness like this:
“I approached this closet like a shrine. It was the heartbeat of the whole place, hidden away, but critical.”
Bloggers sure are making out with book deals lately, all of my past few book purchases have been by bloggers turned authors. I’m devouring my Selby book, browsed through my sister’s copy of the Sartorialist‘s book, and just preordered Apartment Therapy‘s second book.
Lonny magazine was a great first issue… the second issue, was a little too full of store interiors…it felt like a cop-out. One image that did resonate with me though was from the J.Crew collection store spread, where a pair of glamourous heels were displayed in a terrarium.
This got me thinking that it would be an adorable idea for displaying beloved baby shoes in a kids room. In fact, I just might be hunting through some attic boxes for my baby cowgirl boots when I’m home for Christmas this week!
It feels like Christmas! Today Michelle Adams and Patrick Cline launched their first issue of Lonny Magazine, a much talked about e-publication that just might fill that place in our hearts that Domino left.
I just read it cover to cover and it certainly lived up to the hype; I was also pleasantly suprised by how much I enjoyed the eFormat. The pages load quickly, there is far more room for content, and the active links to advertisers and products was awesome! I always read Domino with the sticky-tabs ready for marking everything I wanted to look up online later, and now I can just point and click while scrolling through the pages!
My favorite spread was of Eddie Ross’ home in Millerton, NY. (I loved going there as a kid with my family on trips to nearby Rudd Pond!) I’m particularly drawn to that tiny hounds tooth decanter on the shelf; I just called my mom and confirmed she has the exact same one that I will be stealing on my next trip to her house.
Kudos to Michelle and Patrick, and the best of luck with this magazine. I highly recommend checking it out, and give their sponsors some love if you want to help keep our beloved shelter magazines alive!
