Over the years, her eponymous lifestyle blog has provided us with tons of visual inspiration, and now her recently released anthology, <em><a href="http://www.amazon.com/The-New-Bohemians-Collected-Homes/dp/1617691518">The New Bohemians: Cool and Collected Homes</a></em>, aims to do the same. Filled with ideas that utilize <a href="/Color+Ideas+2014/articles/c2uwuhn4OBu/Bright+Spot+Home+DIY+Art+Walls">color</a>, pattern, and plants to reveal a home that is at once cozy, organic, and stylish, the book decodes&nbsp;the six&nbsp;categories&nbsp;of boho, from modern and folksy to romantic and maximal.</p> <p>Here, she shares her instructions for&nbsp;how to make a retro tripod planter with some table legs sourced&nbsp;from eBay and a few household items. According to her book, "Succulents have shallow roots and store water in their leaves, so you can create a succulent planter from almost anything." This one&nbsp;is inspired by the modern lines in prop stylist Anne Parker and floral designer Alea Joy&rsquo;s Portland, Oregon home, which is featured in <em>The New Bohemians</em>, as well as the indoor gardens and use of wood in the three other homes featured in the book's Earthy chapter.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="kZ3NIUOkv0g" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="kZ3NIUOkv0g"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/pYCzi5r5VXhx.jpg" title="Justina Blakeney's Easy Tripod Succulent Planter Ikea Hack | Lonny.com" alt="Justina Blakeney's Easy Tripod Succulent Planter Ikea Hack" /></div> </div> </div> <p><strong>Tripod Succulent Planter</strong><br />Time: Less than one hour<br />Estimated Cost: $40</p> <p><strong>Materials</strong><br />- a wooden bowl (I used Ikea&rsquo;s <a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30234861/">Rundlig</a>&nbsp;serving bowl. I love the green color it comes in, and the bowl is the perfect size, shape, and price.)<br />- 3 wooden peg legs with screws attached (These are easily purchased on eBay or Etsy for around $20 for a set of four; use search terms like &ldquo;tapered furniture legs&rdquo; or &ldquo;furniture peg legs.&rdquo;)<br />- 3 nuts that fit over the screws on the peg legs<br />- potting soil for succulents<br />- a collection of succulents<br />- Craspedia flowers (billy balls), dried or fresh (if you use fresh flowers, they will dry in the pot)</p> <p><strong>Supplies</strong><br />- tape measure<br />- pencil<br />- drill with drill bit<br />- wood glue</p> <p><strong>Instructions</strong><br />1. Turn the bowl upside down on a clean, smooth surface. Measure out and mark where you want the legs to go. The distance will vary depending on the size of the bowl and legs. Remember that you want the legs to angle outward a bit, so mark the holes far out enough on the bowl that the legs will protrude at an angle, but not so far that the planter starts to look like a spaceship. Make sure that the holes are equidistant from each other and from the center of the bowl.</p> <p>2. Drill a small hole at each mark. The size of the hole should be just shy of the size of the screws that are attached to the tapered legs.</p> <p>3. Drill a couple of additional small holes in the bottom of the bowl for water drainage to prevent root rot.</p> <p>4. Cover the flat surface at the top of each leg with wood glue, then screw the legs into the holes designated for the legs. Secure the legs by screwing the nuts onto the screws inside of the bowl.</p> <p>5. Fill the bowl almost to the brim with the soil. Plant the succulents and water them. (Don&rsquo;t water them again until the soil is completely dry.) Add Craspedia flowers (billy balls) for a little pop of yellow, and admire your sweet mid-century-style planter.</p> Thu, 23 Apr 2015 11:07:50 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/Do-It-Yourself+Projects/articles/8GwrNflqqzI/Easy+Ikea+Hack+How+Make+Tripod+Succulent+Planter 8GwrNflqqzI Solange Is Sharing Peeks Inside Her New Orleans Home <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="q26hd3Cg25o" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="q26hd3Cg25o"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/VxcaSb3pmAox.jpg" title="Solange New Orleans Home" alt="Solange Has Been Sharing Peeks Inside her NOLA Home and We're Fangirling All Over the Place" /></div> <div class="below attribution"><a class="attribution" href="https://instagram.com/p/0a6Ql2wojt/?taken-by=saintrecords">@saintrecords</a></div> </div> </div> <p>Aside from being sister to one Miss Queen B, singer and <a href="https://instagram.com/p/vhfs1HwogK/?taken-by=saintrecords">wedding badass</a>&nbsp;Solange Knowles is perhaps best know for her <a href="https://instagram.com/p/o2d3xaQolt/?taken-by=saintrecords">brilliantly vibrant</a>&nbsp;and occasionally <a href="https://instagram.com/p/lpx4mCQooi/?taken-by=saintrecords">off-the-wall</a>&nbsp;fashion.

Once Inman came on board, he was pleased to find the existing decor already included a few great foundational pieces, such as contrasting tailored sofas and sleek walnut case goods. His client &ldquo;just needed help accessorizing and pulling it all together,&rdquo; says Inman. &ldquo;He didn&rsquo;t want it to feel like walking onto a <em>Mad Men</em> set.&rdquo; Thus began a yearlong project to find interesting textures, bohemian artwork, and items from multiple eras to bring life to the structured pieces. The ultimate goal: a layered, well-ordered interior that would seamlessly incorporate personal elements for a more curated and less period look.</span></p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w80 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="5zEw4Z2N_Ua" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="5zEw4Z2N_Ua"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/b3jekKGs6Zox.jpg" title="DAN WAKEFORD HOME TOUR | LONNY.COM" alt="Bold verticals&mdash;including, from left,&nbsp;a Sansevieria plant,&nbsp;cut gladioli in a vase, and an art print&nbsp;above the bar cart&mdash;add height throughout." /></div> <div class="below">Bold verticals&mdash;including, from left,&nbsp;a <em>Sansevieria </em>plant<em>,</em>&nbsp;cut gladioli in a vase, and an art print&nbsp;above the bar cart&mdash;add height throughout.</div> </div> </div> <p>In terms of aesthetics, designer and client were on the same page. &ldquo;Your space needs to be beautiful, but it also has to be functional&mdash;especially in New York, because there&rsquo;s not a lot of it,&rdquo; says Inman. The two made an abundance of storage solutions a priority, lest the flat become, in Wakeford&rsquo;s words, &ldquo;too much of a granny&rsquo;s attic.&rdquo; One such strategy: shelving surfaces installed atop the windowsills in the living room and home office, which had the added benefit of obscuring air-conditioning and heating vents embedded in the walls. Translucent decorative accessories&mdash;a glass pyramid, bell-jar terrariums&mdash;are thus framed by the windows&rsquo; tall vertical spans without detracting from the exterior view. Occasional items, including a folding bed for guests, live beneath the shelves.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="caKTJ__743z" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="caKTJ__743z"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/crYLIW_ua8Sx.jpg" title="DAN WAKEFORD HOME TOUR | LONNY.COM" alt="Twenty-First-Century Modern" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="separator two"></div> <div class="dynamic-widget" data-url="/widgets/slideshow_widget/a59nnNCBZCa" data-style="width:1000px;height:669px;margin:0 auto;" style="width: 1000px; height: 669px; margin: 0 auto;" data-widget-guid="a59nnNCBZCa" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/slideshow_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="slideshow_widget"></div> <p>Another storage trick involved turning a 12-inch gap behind the curtains into a space to house books not meant for display&mdash;a much more visually appealing tactic than squirreling them away in bulky furniture. Previously, the office had a giant desk that spanned nearly the entire length of the room. &ldquo;You can&rsquo;t do anything in here!&rdquo; was Inman&rsquo;s initial reaction. His favorite moment of the project was the purchase of the surfboard desk that now sits in front of the office window. &ldquo;The curvature of the lines just makes the space so much softer,&rdquo; he explains. The room&rsquo;s gray walls (Benjamin Moore&rsquo;s Ashland Slate) also cultivate a sense of intimacy.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w80 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="KnMD17s0A5P" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="KnMD17s0A5P"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/dPjdpUaAmJ6x.jpg" title="DAN WAKEFORD HOME TOUR | LONNY.COM" alt="Each wall is carefully considered for functionality and aesthetically pleasing display." /></div> <div class="below">Each wall is carefully considered for functionality and aesthetically pleasing display.</div> </div> </div> <p>In the kitchen, which was renovated before Inman came on the scene, a wall of open shelving inspired the pair to create another practical display&mdash;handmade ceramics, a pared-down array of accessories, and classic cookbooks. The vintage bar cart nearby holds various items related to crafting fine cocktails for company. Other items&nbsp;throughout the apartment enhance the curio-box vibe, such as the framed taxidermic insects found at a Paris flea market. &ldquo;I don&rsquo;t even know how we got them back into the United States,&rdquo; says Inman with a laugh.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="gW_OkNJtaj7" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="gW_OkNJtaj7"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/cbWhlKFlEJSx.jpg" title="DAN WAKEFORD HOME TOUR | LONNY.COM" alt="Twenty-First-Century Modern" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="gsSFY9oqx8J" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="gsSFY9oqx8J"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/3qBaM3j6OD8x.jpg" title="DAN WAKEFORD HOME TOUR | LONNY.COM" alt="Twenty-First-Century Modern" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Illustration by Annie Werbler</div> </div> </div> <div class="separator two"></div> <p>&ldquo;As an editor, I&rsquo;m quite specific,&rdquo; says Wakeford.

Rather than designing buildings, however, he designs abstract, ethereal visions&mdash;made even more complicated and compelling by the knowledge of what these landscapes entail. As the title of his award-winning series <em>Toxic Beauty</em>&nbsp;implies, many of his images are bird's-eye views of the effect modern&nbsp;civilization&nbsp;has had on the environment. From power plants, coal mines, and landfills to pristine lakes hidden deep in forests, each image is offered up without judgment for our own personal interpretation. As Kowalski says, "In the air, I only have my instruments; there are no captions on the ground to help me make sense of what I'm looking at."</p> <p>About those flights: they take place on a self-piloted paraglider or a gyroplane, a mini-helicopter with an open cockpit. With his digital SLR camera, Kowalski might&nbsp;shoot the same areas at different seasons or times of day, often&nbsp;just after it has rained, which produces the intensity of color visible in many of his works.

Do you dare buck the subway tile trend for a little stroll&nbsp;on the wild side?&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="PD5lUbR2--S" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="PD5lUbR2--S"><img src="http://www4.pictures.lonny.com/mp/MYtSP3ny-QQx.jpg" title="fire clay tile" alt="The Colorful Trend that Could Oust Subway Tile" /></div> </div> </div> <p></p> Tue, 21 Apr 2015 10:45:36 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/Color+Ideas+2015/articles/Tj7lXxD6nbB/Colorful+Trend+Oust+Subway+Tile Tj7lXxD6nbB A Warm Weather Gin and Citrus Cocktail Recipe <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="4O4qog5c4U6" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="4O4qog5c4U6"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/qg_TQ_qjomOx.jpg" title="The Bubbly Grapefruit Blossom" alt="The Bubbly Grapefruit Blossom cocktail,&nbsp;compliments of Diageo.&nbsp;" /></div> <div class="below">The Bubbly Grapefruit Blossom cocktail,&nbsp;compliments of Diageo.&nbsp;</div> <div class="below"> <div class="below attribution">Photographed by Davide Luciano</div> </div> </div> </div> <p>One of my favorite things about spring time&nbsp;in the city is seeing how its multitude of&nbsp;restaurants welcome the warm weather. I love coming across&nbsp;a cafe owner rolling out a&nbsp;striped awning in the morning, extending seating out onto the sidewalk with neat&nbsp;rows of cafe tables and chairs.&nbsp;Waiters&nbsp;will&nbsp;brush elbows with pedestrians&nbsp;on the cramped walkways, but everyone understands that it's just not possible to stay inside!</p> <p>Here at Lonny, we're&nbsp;toasting&nbsp;the arrival of spring&nbsp;with a&nbsp;Bubbly Grapefruit Blossom. The beverage&nbsp;experts at <a href="http://www.diageo.com/en-row/OurBrands/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">Diageo</a>&nbsp;shared&nbsp;the&nbsp;recipe with us for our&nbsp;recent&nbsp;<a href="/Entertaining+Idea+of+the+Day/articles/pc_SpCJ24xK/Colorful+Brunch+Party+Throwback+Style" target="_blank">brunch party</a>, and it was so popular that I'll be stocking&nbsp;these ingredients&nbsp;on my bar cart&nbsp;all season long.&nbsp;The sweet vermouth and tangy fruit juice balances out the gin. Consider it an upgrade from the&nbsp;standard&nbsp;mimosa, with a more&nbsp;unexpected source of vitamin C.&nbsp;</p> <p></p> <p><strong>Ingredients:</strong></p> <p>1 oz Tanqueray No. Ten Gin</p> <p>1 oz Sweet Vermouth</p> <p>1 oz&nbsp;Fresh Grapefruit Juice</p> <p>1.5 oz Stellina Di Notte Prosecco</p> <p></p> <p><strong>Instructions:</strong></p> <p>Pour each ingredient, with the exception of the Prosecco, in to a shaker.&nbsp; Add ice, shake until chilled, strain into a flute and top with chilled Prosecco. Garnish with a grapefruit wedge.&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="W7VrNV_aEs5" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="W7VrNV_aEs5"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/rwcnCPTCExLx.jpg" title="The Bubbly Grapefruit Blossom" alt="A Summery Gin and Citrus Cocktail Recipe" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Photographed by Davide Luciano</div> </div> </div> <p></p> Tue, 21 Apr 2015 08:14:06 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/Entertaining+Idea+of+the+Day/articles/gctUChx1hhK/Warm+Weather+Gin+Citrus+Cocktail+Recipe gctUChx1hhK Faux-Marble Bowls, Windsor Smith's New Book, and the World's Most Glamorous Mama <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="BsG_mL_B42u" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="BsG_mL_B42u"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/9hUL1iMWNIpx.jpg" title="LINK LOVES | LONNY.COM" alt="Faux-Marble Bowls, Windsor Smith's New Book, and the World's Most Glamorous Mama" /></div> </div> </div> <p><em><strong>Falling (All Over Again) for Windsor Smith</strong></em><br />"I don't aspire to create beautiful rooms for people as much as I want to change the way they live in them"&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.1stdibs.com/introspective-magazine/windsor-smith-homefront/" target="_blank">1stdibs Introspective</a></p> <p><em><strong>The Rugs&nbsp;We Can't Stop Thinking About</strong></em><br />Swiss brand Cloak puts a contemporary spin on age-old&nbsp;carpets &ndash;&nbsp;<a href="http://trendland.com/cloak-contemporary-carpets-ancient-craft/" target="_blank">Trendland</a></p> <p><em><strong>Perennially Haute Mama</strong></em><br />What a bombshell: Julia Restoin Roitfeld&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thecoveteur.com/julia-roitfeld/" target="_blank">The Coveteur</a></p> <p><em><strong>Easy DIY Faux-Marble Bowls</strong></em><br />All you need is clay and an oven.
