First of all I am really digging Lonny, an online magazine developed by former Domino editor, Michelle Adams and professional photographer, Patrick Cline. The duo launched the mag in October with a wonderful fall issue. The winter issue is also great. The Manhattan apartment designed by New York designer, Brad Ford was favorite feature . The article is particularly compelling as Ford's client is a long time friend who he had advised on furniture purchases for years before designing this space. The selection of quality pieces in neutrals over time has certainly paid off. The home illustrates that you can achieve a cohesive and sophisticated design without buying new. And thanks to Lonny, you can find some of the pieces yourself by hovering over the furniture and clicking on the link.
This kitchen is simple and crisp in white. The dining area is furnished with a table from West Elm and chairs from Crate and Barrel. I love the integration of high-end and more affordable pieces in the design.
The modern kid's room is equipped with the most stylish crib and changer I've ever seen from Netto. Consider this space evidence that a child's room can be both adorable and blend in with the rest of the home's decor.
The bedroom is serene and simple and feels just as inviting and natural as the rest of the home. Ford feels strongly that all rooms of the home should relate to each other, thus creating a cohesive environment. For more on this exciting project, check out the article in Lonny. And also check out Ford's blog, Design Therapy, which I also love.
