The Details.

I do not care how many bloggers have covered the latest issue of Lonny, I'm joining the party a few days late.

This latest issue was just plain inspiring.

I'll share a few things I loved. First up, the co-founder and VP of Waterworks shared the Easton Faucet that reminded me of a task lamp from Target I've been eyeing, but I do not need. The mix of metal and wood seems like a product Ralph Lauren would endorse, and I love all things RL.

I also loved the hotel, La Mamounia, in Morocco and added that hotel on my rolling list of things to see...

I enjoyed seeing Adam Straus's LA home. Lately this masculine, glamour is really speaking to me. Please note the antiqued mirrors with frames mounted on top of the mirror. It's incredible.

Next up, Ruthie Sommers. Her home renovation was amazing and I loved the outdoor space, but more than that, I loved her quote about design: "I don't try to work toward an end point or the perfect home. I am old enough to know this day is all we have, and I just want to enjoy that."

She could have given a quote about her work, but instead she is intentional on sharing her overall outlook on life instead of her work. Ruthie seems to understands that design is a luxury but it needs to be practical. She is so refreshing and this reminds me of a quote I posted earlier on Smitten Design. (I wish she was on Million Dollar Decorators)

Lonny also featured another insane hotel design by Michele Bonan in Germany that I previously blogged about here.

He transformed a yacht into the hotels restaurant. Do you see he added a bookcase and a fireplace in there? This man knows how to create atmosphere.

Other random news, I spied cowhide rugs on 16 pages in this issue. That makes me happy. Did anything stand out to you in this issue?
