lonny thoughts

here's my deal-

we wait and wait and wait and wait

for lonny.

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 

a bummer.


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?

porcelain 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 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?




trad home came with the smackdown

 someone has been drinking their tiger blood...


the folks at traditional home magazine and lonny magazine birthed a shiny new online magazine and i enjoyed at least 97% of it. 


beyond the 19 (!!!), mostly awesome,  featured homes there were useful tips and interesting articles



and not too many of them for people like me who thinking reading is dumb. 



but, alas there were some interiors that hate-fucked my eyes. 





and this:




and (murder) this:


but mostly there was this:









thanks guys.

don't fuck it up.
