Premiere of Rue Online Magazine

Home Interior Inspiration: the Premiere of Rue Online Magazine

The long awaited launch of online magazine Rue is finally here. It’s about ten a.m. where I’m at, and I’m supposed to be working on my articles but I can’t help but feast my eyes on every page.

Because it’s the Premiere Issue, it’s only fitting to introduce the founders and the  entire team behind this beautiful project. And yes, there is a tour of co-founder Crystal Gentilello‘s fabulous one-bedroom apartment.
Readers are also invited to take a look inside the elegant abodes of blogger/designer Heather Clawson; design legend, Vicente Wolf; Hayden-Harnett’s Toni Hacker & Ben Harnett; interior designer, Julia Edelmann; Larry and Jamie Laubhan Oliver (the grandiose bedroom from the sneak peek is from their house); painter, Sam Gilliam  which was styled and recreated by Mary Douglas Drysdale.
I especially enjoyed touring the stunning home of San Francisco blogger and stylist Victoria Smith. Yes, she’s that famous blogger of sfgirlbybay. Her passion for bohemian style decorating transcends in every corner and space of her beautiful bungalow.

My list of blog love has definitely lengthened. I have set myself to visit my new discoveries in the following days. Design Love Fest by Bri Emery (She designed the cover of Rue) being my newest favorite. Holly, from Decor8 (one of my favorites on my blogroll) is featured on its Blogger side-by-side segment, along with  Ronda Carman from Allthebestblog.
Foodies would surely love the How Do You Like Them segment which in this issue, features apple recipes. There are party tips from HGTV designer Emily Henderson with free stationery printables. Maegan Gonzalez of MaeMae Paperie is featured in Studio Tour plus a free stationery download exclusively for Rue readers so if you’re into lovely paper, you have to check it out.

Interior guru Grant K. Gibson walks the streets of Laurel Heights in West Coast and stops by the best decor shops the city has to offer. If you’re a man or a woman who likes blue, Will Taylor have some great finds for you.
Best girlfriends, Jen Gotch and Jamie Coulter celebrates the 2nd year anniversary of with a bang! Fill your day with glitter, glamour, color and inspiration as you browse the crisp shots photographed by Max Wanger. It’s one of my  most favorites in this issue. Then of course, there are more shops to discover, more places to see in just a click of the mouse.

The magazine is obviously a fruitage of hard work and love.  Congratulations to the Rue Magazine team for a fabulous and successful debut!
