A new week & a few Lonny favourites

Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are feeling refreshed for the new week ahead.

Over the weekend I gushed poured over the November/December issue of Lonny - have you taken a look yet? I highly recommend you do as this edition is filled with so many ideas to inspire, and of course beautiful homes - three of which I wanted to share with you today.

First was the apartment designed by Celerie Kemble where she aimed to create "a tranquil but feminine urban oasis" on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Whilst this is very much a family home, I adore the feminine touches she has used to balance out the dramatic use of colour and black and white.

Second, was the home store and art gallery, specialising in vintage and contemporary sculpture, created by Paul Cadell. I was particularly drawn to this home given the interesting dynamic of it doubling as a gallery, and I love how Cadell has decorated his home, filling it with family heirlooms and whimsical items collected from his overseas trips.

Lastly, I couldn't resist the sophisticated & glamourous apartment of Micheal & Robert Leleux. They had a small space to work with, but through clever decorating you would never have guessed the size.

What caught your eye in Lonny this month?

Also, stay tuned for the 3rd installment of the Summer Series tomorrow!

  3. Okay, I'll go ahead and probably be the only person saying it but Lonny didn't impress me at all. I only found a few pages that I liked. I better stop expressing what I feel before I insult anyone ;-)

    A happy Monday to you!
