Many bloggers have recapped the newest issue of Lonny so I won't bore you with that. But what I'd like to do is dig a little deeper.
When a new e-mag launches, I usually flip through quickly soaking in all the pretty pictures. But after I look at the magazine as a casual reader, I try and go back with my "decorator" hat on and learn. I go through the issue again, taking note of the details and the unexpected. I think that is an important part of decorating.
Here are a few things I personally took note of in the newest Lonny:
[ some picture are very blurry because they are literally the LITTLE details ;) ]
Magnolia Leaf Arrangement - we have a magnolia tree in our front yard, and this is a beautiful (and new to me) idea. I may try this for our Christmas table.
Framed Notebook - not really a new idea, but there is something so beautiful about it. I think it'd be especially interesting if there wasn't anything that special written on the page.. just a grocery list or something. Almost like catching a simple moment of time in someone's life.
Only one pattern! - I am guilty of "the more pattern the better!" rule.. but this is such a fresh way of thinking about throw pillows. Only one pattern and the rest are the same (the same as the sofa! And the walls!). Who would have thought....
The Goblet - I love the idea of leaving a (glass) bottle of water for your guests with a goblet to drink out of. A little touch of luxury.
Two Lamps - I really like the idea of putting two lamps, exactly the same, next to each other like this. What can I say, I love symmetry.
Floor to Ceiling Curtains - A new meaning to "floor to ceiling". Putting panels ON molding. May not be a new idea, but new to me! I like it. (Although it would only work with pleating in my opinion).
