Lonny just released their July/Aug issue yesterday. I swear, it’s a little like Christmas for me when each issue gets released. With absolute glee, I carefully flip through each spread. These are my favorite images below. Oddly enough, it became a case study of feminine vs. masculine design.
The first image is an obvious choice. It’s oh-so saccharine and ultra girly. The room reminds me of the awful but beautiful movie, Marie Antoinette. It is a perfect mixture of Rococo and shabby chic. What I love most is the absolute boldness and total unconcern of ‘good’ taste. And I quite enjoy imagining myself as an eight-year-old girl, with a mop of curly hair, lounging on the candy colored settee.
On the other spectrum, is this very sultry, masculine space. Here, I adore the dark moody walls juxtaposed with the warm wood tones. I imagine that this would be my living room if I were a man. I also imagine that I would be a well-traveled and mysterious man who rather enjoyed fine cigars. The testosterone filled atmosphere, I believe, is what I fancy most here.
Yes, I admit that I do have a bit of an imagination.
But tell me, are you a fan of Lonny? I’d love to know, which are your favorite spreads?
