Lonny Love

I had a chance to sit down with the latest issue of Lonny Magazine over the weekend and while there is always the obligatory shopping lust list, I was most drawn to the home of Robert & Michael Leleaux . It's not grand on any scale, in fact it's a tiny Upper West Side apartment but it's everything that I admire most in a home.  It's so personal and interesting and heterogeneous and lived in and sophisticated and a bit quirky.  I wanted to park myself on every chair in every corner and ask the two of them questions.  About everything.

I love the mirror, the scattered art in different sized frames, the dresser, the arrangement on the dresser.

I am a fool for gallery walls.  Always.

Almost instantly I felt the overwhelming need for a gaping mouth match holder.  There can't be any other way to store matches (though I ignorantly need to know where you strike them before I invest).

Everything feels so collected and non-matchy matchy (mein gott there has to be a better way of saying that!).  I want to go to there.

...leading up to the bedroom.  The vintage movie poster is fantastic.

Sadly the black rotary phone by my bed no longer works but I love it and refuse to move it from the night stand.  I live in hope that someone somewhere someday will be able to get it working again.

If you haven't yet had a chance to peruse this issue, waste NOT A MOMENT.
