Rooms of the week - Lonny Magazine

I'm sure that by now you've checked out Lonny Magazine, but if not, head immediately to!

Here's just a taste:

Lonny stands for London/New York and has a decidedly Euro/urban attitude, hipper than most print publications still out there.

So what do you think? Will online mags replace print?

Rooms of the week...

This week, I'm into celebrity homes. A few of my faves:

This is Lindsey Buckingham's living room. I love the boho vibe and mixed art, the unmatched lamps and the color palette.

Michelle Smith ( of fashion house Milly) has a similarly eclectic living room. Love the large painting, the funky 60's light fixture and the beautiful carved fireplace.

I adore Ellen Pompeo's kitchen! Check out the huge black and white photo, open shelving, and stainless steel cabinets.

This is Ralph Lauren's dining room in his Manhattan pied-a-terre. It's subtly stylish...except for the light fixtures, which are to die for.

And finally, this is my idea of a closet. (It's bigger than my first apartment.) Designer Nanette Lepore is the lucky owner of this beauty.

Mardi Gras!

Today our little village had its best ever Mardi Gras parade. I only got to see a little of it, but from all reports it was fantabulous.

However, friends and neighbors stopped in to show us their get-ups, which was even better than seeing the parade!

You can see part of our award-winning window in this shot. (Yes, we won first place in the Mardi Gras window decorating contest. Woo hoo.)
