The best of Rue…

I get alot of design-related junk mail in my inbox these days, but there’s one message that never fails in its quest to make me click through to its website: ‘the new issue of Rue Magazine is available now!’

My heart always skips a little beat as I impatiently wait for the magazine to load up on my screen.  And it never ever fails to deliver.  Seriously, I love this mag.  So today I thought I’d post up my fave pics from this month’s edition, just wair until you see these corkers.

First up, event planner Jung Lee’s studio in NYC – do you seeeee all of those incredible props??!  I bet they’ve planned some pretty amazing shindigs with these items on hand, and I love that inspiration board:

Next up, some gorgeous dark and moody schemes by Tamara Honey.  The sombre colourings are balanced by a few whimsical touches (porcelain doggy, quirky wallpaper) and the overall effect is spot on I think.  I am slightly obsessing over that daybed too…

And I’m totally enamoured with every single thing about this dining room.  I don’t normally go for this style so much but there’s something about this scheme that’s got me – think it might be the lucite.  Or that insane chandie.

And probably also that bar cart…hello blingerama!

And last up is the home of one of Rue’s contributors, Cassandra Lavalle.  I love Love LOVE interior design that challenges established ideas and pushes boundaries, but I also have a huge soft spot for interesting-and-beautiful-yet-not-too-crazy homes – I mean at the end of the day, you have to live there right?!  This is a great example of one of the latter in my opinion – well designed but not too ‘out there’:

LOVING this mini gallery wall!  And the black piping around the lampshades, gorgeous.

So there you go folks, that’s my round up.  Which design magazines are your faves?
