there were plenty of oddball photo shoots..
including but not limited to..
a juvenile looking bed party..
a foodless desert dinner party...
and the ubiquitous hipster feet shots..
also kelly hoppen told me i should be interested in a yoga mat and a sweatshirt..among other things..
and the interiors..
see for yourself..
i just don't care about this shit anymore.
globes and etsy art?
this is cutting edge decor?
empty frames on a chalkboard wall?
i mean i get that it's for the kids..and it's cute in your house that i never have to come to...
but i don't want it featured in my shelter publications..
i need inspiration.
this is not inspiring me.
and i bet if you read this blog it's not inspiring you either.
christina strutt's place was charming enough..
i never met a cozy english cottage i didn't love..
and points for the puppy in the basket- (put the lotion in the basket)
but it was all kind of a mess.
like a visit to your grandma's house where shit hasn't been thrown away in 40 years.
but bailey's place was delightful:
for those of you that don't know bailey she writes a very cute and funny blog called, peppermint bliss.
and her house in this issue of rue was far and away the highlight.
a glittering golden nugget in a sea of turds.
she is self taught, hugely talented and her personality comes through big time in her space.
she is also pregs and a few months ago asked me to conjure up a magical baby room for her little girl to be.
you should go look at it if you want to look at something cute..
as for rue...
i am impressed by the rue girls' tenacity and their willingness to put it out there and take a risk and follow their dreams.
but this issue screamed amateur to me. and it also felt like it was geared toward a MUCH younger, less sophisticated audience.
what did you all think?
