Lonny Magazine: November-December Edition 2011

Have you checked out the new edition of Lonny Mag yet? Here's some of my favorite pictures from the "Urban Renewal" spread which features a modern Upper East Side high-rise in Manhattan.

 I always like the casualness of leaning art on furniture rather that hanging it on the wall.

 Love this fierce looking fish table. Gold and black gets me every time.

I think the black and white in the living room are a great backdrop to the softer palate in the dining area. The chandelier is fabulous as is the gold flatware and place mats.

I love this bed. Most of the time we think of the bedroom as a serene space that should be soft and delicate but this bed is glamours and bold!

Adore Home Magazine- New York Edition

While flipping through the Adore Home Magazine New York Edition an article on Melanie and Devin Duncan's Upper West Side apartment caught my eye. I am in a constant state of revamping my own home and these pictures are actually perfect because this is exactly the same color scheme that I am trying to incorporate. I'm really into the moody gray wall color with the gold and bronze accents in these pictures.

Speaking of Kelly Wearstler...

I was doing my usual morning blog stroll and came across some pictures of her new mini boutiques in Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Holt Renfrew diplaying her ready-to-wear line and accessories. As always, great styling and furniture!

Kelly Wearstler- Love it or Leave it?

As self proclaimed Kelly Wearstler fans (really, who isn't?) we are always excited to see what she will come up with next. As of late it has been an accessories line as well as a fashion line. I have to say that I probably love fashion just as much as interior design and home styling so I was thrilled to find out that Kelly Wearstler was branching out into fashion. With all that being said there are some pieces that I love and others that I myself simply could not rock.

Let's start with the accessories...
What I'm Wild About

Brass and Quartz Pyramid Necklace
I love this piece. It combines two of my favorite materials. The chunky brass chain is substantial and the pyramid cut quarts is fantastic.

Pyrite and Brass Bangle
Again, love the materials (as you may know I am a big fan of brass). I'm into the subtle monochromatic feel of this bangle and what I love most about these pieces is that they are so geometric. 

What I'm Not Wild About

Pyrite-Embellished Brass Necklace
This just reminds me of a medieval weapon. It's the old ball and chain...not feeling it. Just does not feel very chic...I get that it's edgy but I don't think it's for me.

I am a huge fan of Kelly Wearstler's textiles but the scarves in this collection just don't do it for me. They're not terrible or anything but I'm just not over the top about them.

Now we can get to the clothes....

What I'm Wild About

Gypsum Striped Blazer
This is my favorite piece in the collection. Love the pattern, fit, color and sheen of the fabric.

Oncidum Printed Blouse
Great everyday piece in an airy and comfortable fabric. This is the kind of piece I will always buy.

Feathered Chevron Dress
Great LBD

Tanzanite Striped Blazer & Arcadia Skirt
This whole outfit is perfect! Great look for work...very chic!

Dorian One-Shoulder Dress
This dress is great for a romantic evening out. Love the drama of the draped fabric.

What I'm Not Wild About

The truth is I love just about everything in this collection but there are a couple of pieces I just can't see myself wearing but I think that is what's so great about this line. There are unique pieces to fit everyone's taste. So here goes...

Dendrobium Velvet Dress
I love the material and color but the way the fabric drapes just doesn't seem flattering. 

Tie Waist Fur Coat
To be fair I'm not much into fur coats and this one is made from black dyed lamb pieces. Not my thing but I'm sure there are many others who are into this look. Just feels like something out of the Munsters to me.

 What did you think? Are there pieces you love or hate?

One of my favorite tools is Google Reader. Simply could not live without it now. I spend hours and hours searching through blogs for inspiration and ideas and Google Reader has given me a tool to help streamline all that searching. It brings all the new posts from my favorite blogs to one place and allows me to save my favorites. From time to time I like to dig through all the posts that I've "starred" for some inspiration. Here are some of my favorite images collected so far this year.

Awesome living wall.

I think these are pieces of wood that have been sanded down and painted. They look like precious gems.

Painting that looks like crystals.

Can't stop looking at this picture..the metallic chevron patterned cabinet and gold metallic tables are right up my alley.

Obsessed with vein cut stone and in a chevron die for. Love love love the upholstered and studded doors.

Like the simplicity of the color palate...white black and a splash of green. The lucite legs on these chairs along with the chandelier make this room. 

Don't usually like murals but this one caught my attention. This room just feels super bohemian which I love.

Bohemian meets Glamour

Emerald green and long beautiful hair.

Lucite and rainbow colored hardware.

Rainbow pants....guess I was really feeling the rainbow thing.

I am determined to find a coffee table like this one for myself. Anyone know where to find this? It has everything I need...round shape, mirror top and brass metal tone.

Alhambra Palace

After a bit of an absence on the blog front it's time for me to share some of the beautiful images from a summer trip to Spain and Portugal. We toured Barcelona, Granada, Madrid and Lisbon and of course upon our return everyone asked "what was your favorite city?" The truth is that I loved them all for different reasons but Granada did hold a special place in my heart. It's a smaller city with so much history. There were points when I turned a corner and literally felt like I had gone back in time. Granada is a city of kings and monuments with it's largest attraction being the Alhambra Palace. I have memories of being here as a child and had always anticipated the day when I would return. It was even better the second time around. Everywhere I looked there were beautiful and ornate patterns and colors all influenced by Moorish design.
