New Lonny=Genius.

I was SO smitted with the new Lonny when I devoured it last night.  Not to be annoying and regurgitate images and info, I just have to share my favorite images, spaces and products from it! It’s just tooooo good!

Numero uno on my list was the squeal-inducing coverage of Germany’s Heidelberg Suites Hotel.  No surprise, it’s done by the same designer that fashioned my two dream hotels- JK Place and JK Place Capri– but the really interesting part is that this is the first time designer Michele Bonan has OWNED a hotel. I am now dying to go here. DYING.

The hotel’s restaurant is ON A BOAT. ON A FRIGGIN’ BOAT! That looks like this!

Charming much?

A couple images from the hotel’s site of the exterior and roof deck views. Le sigh.

Ok, moving on (even though it’s hard not to just stare at the hotel all day) I love the black and white mixed with natural wood and antique art here:

Ruthie Sommers LA home is too cute for words, full of details we all should study.

Like look at those red wallpapered walls with the trim painted to match and ribbon and nail head trim around the door frame?  Never mind the amazing faux alligator wallcovering in the amazing moody powder room!

I would murder for a little studio like this. Like death row straight up murder.

This might be my favorite image.  The black and white photo mural mixed with the rich leather and vintage Louis trunks is magnificent. I would have added a solid color blanket to the bed- emerald green, most likely.

Another GENIUS application of photo wallpaper! It would feel like waking up on the beach minus the raging hangover that would accompany actually waking up face down in sand dunes (becasue being ragingly drunk would be the only way that would happen).

I am currently obsessed with bedding like this. Jenna Lyons had some similar on her Domino cover and if we end up getting our condo I am going to switch up our bedding (shhh, don’t tell Andrew. He thinks I have a duvet cover addiction that needs a 12 step intervention.)

Love. Pure and simple. Black is the new dark brown.

The dark blue walls with pop of orange and zebra and wood is so very me.

Some great products found through the issue:

RabLab’s rock and gold cheese platters– so much more glam than the popular slate….

Property’s amazing gilded chair

The art of James Nares

The wood and steel combo of the Haute Living side table
