Lonny does Metallics

Lonny’s Nov/Dec issue was just released. What I gravitated to the most is a bit odd for me. Usually, I go ga-ga for dreamy interiors. But the perfectly curated collection of objects here, make my heart sing.  And might I add, that the ultra-femme font doesn’t hurt either.

I adore this warm-neutral palette with season appropriate use of shiny, reflective-metallics.

Can you imagine a room designed around this!? I would just die!

And here, a cold-neutral palette accented by silver. Tres chic, no?!

From Dress to Room

Back in the day when Domino still reigned, there was a segment that I most enjoyed. It was the challenge of turning an outfit into a room. I always thought that it would be such a fun way of deriving inspiration for a space. Years later, I would meet a super fun chick who is also an awesome graphic designer. Her eye-catching wardrobe, I felt, would make a terrific room. We chatted up the subject and I discovered that she needed help designing an office space within her home. For her, it was her femme space to be creative and indulge her girly side. And she hinted to me that she was completely willing to diy (told you she was cool.) I have said it before,  I absolutely love a good challenge.

Here is what I came up with using her favorite outfit:

What do you think Ms. Mei? Did I live up to your challenge?
