here's my deal-
we wait and wait and wait and wait
and then it gets here and
1. it's the GREEN issue. (rolls eyes)
i like things that are green.
i like things that support other things that need supporting.
i don't use commercial cleaners, i use vinegar..not just as a deliciously gross drink but as a cleaner for just about everything in my home.
so green = good,
but "insanely proud of" and "larger than ever and jam packed with inspiration"?!?
maybe i am rainman but when i flipped to the blogger page at the end i was like...
"is that it?!!"
and i beg to differ on the "jam packed with inspiration" bit.
2. i think 3 of the homes featured i had seen already..including wearstler's store.
and while all of the homes in the issue were beautiful and homes i would make out with if given half the chance..
it was still kind of a let down.
i know in this day of the blog and pinterest it's hard to NOT see everything a million times..
but to wait like 4 months or whatever for a publication to come out only to have it be filled with places i have seen is
3. the homes.
yeah, i guess so.
anna burke's place gave everyone wood, and it is always nice to see a home worked out with supreme skill on a major budget..because it's just a bigger accomplishment in my opinion and more relatable.
but the rest of the homes were pretty darn blah.
all of them mashed together in their blah-ness made it all the more blah.
here's what i did like-
mixed up furniture, juju hat and diy art.
budget decorating at it's best.
though those juju hats aren't in my budget.
k dub's bathroom.
it's insane and wonderful.
i would be honored to leave a turd in her toilet.
fur on rattan.
unexpected and awesome.
i am obsessed with that mirror.
there was no link for it (murder laser side eye) but i think it could be an easy diy.
square shaped mirror and ceramic balls?
glue made from unicorns?
i love bunny williams's entire lamp collection for beeline home.
and while i would never pay 600 dollars for a wasp comb with some shards of glass shoved into it..
i DESPERATELY WANT IT!!!
i have about 3 wasp combs living on my house in the summer that i will mike will gather and shove glass into.
so..what are your thoughts on this long awaited lonny issue?
