Growing up in Texas, fall was a season I'd only seen in movies. When I experienced my first "real" fall at college in rural New York, I finally understood the appeal of trading the hustle and bustle of city life for a quieter life in a toasty log cabin in the woods and becoming a quick-witted Katharine Hepburn type with a knack for riding horses and chopping firewood. If you're not ready to take the plunge and relocate, here are some things to recreate that crisp outdoorsy feeling in your...Read Full Story

Think back to elementary school. On the playground and in the classroom, there was no worse insult than the tear-inducing zinger “copycat.” Since then, we’ve all grown up a bit and we’ll have to agree that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In that spirit, we’d love to introduce our newest feature, High/Low. You may remember Ryan Korban’s bedroom from our February/March issue. We haven’t stopped thinking about it either! Polished without being...Read Full Story

I love this vase from The Future Perfect. It has such a classic shape, but it was the quirky twist of yellow that sold me. Something that could be stuffy becomes just a little bit off. Fill it with ranunculus and you have the perfect centerpiece for an Alice in Wonderland–inspired tea party.

Just two weeks ago we received a phone call that turned our office upside down and sent the team at Lonny into an excited frenzy. Nate Berkus, the handsome design superstar who's charmed his way into homes across America with his eponymous show, asked our very own Editor in Chief Michelle Adams to make a guest appearance! The episode airs tomorrow (click here to find out when it's showing in your city) and will feature the latest design trends along with before and after photos of the homes...Read Full Story
Melissa Conroy is an insanely talented artist. She creates gorgeous, expansive canvases filled with color and action and bombast. There’s a vast range of them to be seen on her website, and they’re all wonderful. But for some reason, these canvases from the Aerial Camouflage series particularly caught my fancy. I think they’re so compelling—eerie and beautiful, violent and serene, all at once.

Fringe is a throwback that we’re more than happy to see coming back. On the runway and city streets and in celebrity fashion collections (hello, Kate Moss!), fringe is everywhere.
Not only do we love the swish of fringe on a beautiful top, but fringed detailing, as you can see in the items we’ve culled above, makes a seamless transition from fashion to home. In rich neutrals, like soft cream or caramel-colored leather, these fringed favorites aren’t just a passing trend.

Not too long ago at a press preview, I came across this beaded bracelet from Cost Plus World Market (their new jewelry buyer knows what's up…), and I couldn't stop thinking about it! Since it's such a unique piece (and a steal at $12.99), I started brainstorming what would go with it without stealing the show and came up with these finds. This outfit is appropriate for the office or for meeting friends for dinner, and I can't wait to get my hands on all these goodies!

Considering its rather unglamorous origins as a geological rock formation, the geode has the ability to add a punch of glitz and sparkle to any vignette. Not only are we thrilled that this trend has made its way out of the science classroom and into our homes; we were also delighted to find it in a variety of options, both functional and decorative. Whether you use it as a paperweight or a side table, the geode can be interpreted in countless ways as a colorful and unique accessory.
