Lonny: July/August Issue

As most of you probably already know the new issue of Lonny magazine came out a few days ago.  Is it OK to say I was a little underwhelmed with it?  It's usually so full of enticing images and decor but this not time, not so much...of course there was some good in it so I'll share it with you.

One of the first things that grabbed my attention was the brief history of the Art Deco movement.  As I love the architecture (I still say the Chrysler Building is by far the most magnificent testament to this era) and especially lighting I was eager to soak up the facts:
  • The style came of age between the two world wars, specifically in the April of 1925.
  • Although it has modernist origins it is highly informed by traditional design.
  • It is characterised by taut geometric lines and arches.

While the colours/patterns are not for me, I LOVE these gigantic floor cushions.

I thought Ruthie Sommers tips for transforming a fixer-upper on p157 were great:
  1. Buy great artwork.
  2. Fill it with things you love.
  3. Create tablescapes and collect books.
  4. Seek out high-quality investment pieces.
  5. Throw many a party with lots of happy people.

I like the thought/presentation that's gone into this drinks tray.

I'm a little bit crazy about these mirrored frames.  

And that sadly was it :(  Am happy to be proven wrong if you can point out anything fab that I've missed but until then I wait patiently for an improvement in the next issue.



  1. These are fabulous! I love the mirrored frames! Enjoy the gorgeous weekend, Kellie xx
