Home Interior Inspiration: Caroline Robert

Home Interior Inspiration: Caroline Robert

Finally got some time to take a look at Lonny’s May/June Issue. As always, I am awestruck with the featured homes. This is the lofty home of Caroline Robert at New Orleans. it is hard for me to imagine myself living in such a grand place but is certainly a pleasure to the eyes.  My favorite is the breakfast nook, with the Lucite chairs and the giant Italian antique chandelier.

On a different note, did you notice that Blogger’s dashboard has changed?  I was taken by surprise when I opened it.  Suddenly, all the tools are not where they used be:)

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.
