I was so disappointed in Lonny this month. I think everyone in America is using the same formula to decorate now. Cowhide - check. West Elm lacquer parson's desk - check. Big antique looking gold leaf mirror - check. Vintage brass table found on Ebay to make people think I am funky - check. Knockoff Saarinen dining table with french chairs - check.
I admit I am guilty of falling in love with trends - they are trends for a reason, because they are beautiful. But if I have to look at these same spaces over and over again I will lose my mind. I mean, we have already seen Ruthie Sommers house in three other mags. And two of the projects were done by Michelle Adams, the editor. Shameless plug much?
Here are the only two pics I saved. Even though this apartment had an extreme over abundance of crap from West Elm, Ikea, Zgallerie and Room and Board (not to mention high end crap from Oly, Worlds Away and Made Goods), this pick up stick chandelier from Billy Cotton is my new obsession. And in the second pic I hate everything but the $300/yd Pierre Frey drapery fabric is bangin'.
What did you think?
