Premiere of Trad Home is Live

I’m still trying to figure out what the relationship between Traditional Home and Lonny is; all I know is that it resulted in a love child. Said child is a digital magazine called Trad Home. I’m in the midst of perusing it, and it’s pretty nice. If you’ve checked it out, let me know what you think they are going for  – is it supposed to be like Traditional Home light? Do you think they would EVER feature Brad’s redecoration of Jill Zarin’s apartment that was on the cover of Traditional Home last year? Would you call it “less traditional homes”? Can you feel me biting my tongue trying not to make a comment about a certain furniture polisher with the initials E.R.? Other thoughts?.

Click here to check out the premiere issue of Trad Home.

Also, do you have a favorite online magazine? I feel like I’m still getting to know all of them, and it seems like new ones pop up daily. Right now I’m still really enjoying Lonny (which seems like the grandmother of them all – the cool grandmother) and Rue and one from Australia I found the other day  – the name escapes me at the moment. Please let us know what you’re digitally flipping through in the comments section!

Hey All!

I know it’s Wednesday already and my Thanksgiving week of blogs is a jumble, but I have to ask: Do you Rue? I just wanted to make sure you know that the new issue of Rue Magazine is live. I’m triple dipping, as it’s great for Inspiration Monday:

Environmental Tuesday: It saves on paper and those pesky carbon footprints the mail truck makes because it’s online.

Finally, Organization Wednesday: It contains beautiful images of my personal most-coveted closet, that of Sea of Shoes’ Jane Aldridge and her mum Judy Aldridge. I envy their (sometimes shared) wardrobe more than any other in the world. If you love fashion and you haven’t checked out the Sea of Shoes blog, I promise once you visit once you won’t be able to stop! Here’s a peek at how Judy curates her closet like a museum display. To see the rest (and there is a LOT more, you’ll have to go Rue – it starts on page 110)

Online Magazines: Nesting Newbies

I am pretty new to digital magazines. While I love my glossies, so many of them have disappeared lately that I am turning to the internet. Online magazines are only getting better and better lately – they have such a professional look, they feature people that we won’t see in the big magazines like Elle Decor and House Beautiful, at least not yet, they have much shorter load times than they used to and they have become really easy to “flip through”. To me they are the media that exists between blogs and print magazines. I’m digging them, and who can resist that orange, black and white cover? I LOVE IT!  I had not heard of Nesting Newbies until I saw a link to it in an email I received from one of our soon-to-be-featured guest bloggers. They are now on issue 2 (yup, that sounds about right for how long it takes me to hear about something new and exciting), and I LOVE their philosophy. I think they said it best themselves, so I am going to quote:

NestingNewbies.com is a cross platform experience featuring a quarterly digital shelter magazine, online cooking segments, and informational blogs aimed at showing those who are new to nesting how to cook, entertain, and decorate.

NestingNewbies.com combines a traditional magazine format with the new social media trend of original online videos and blogs to present a cross-platform experience for “nesting newbies,” the site’s target audience of those who are new to nesting and have no clue when it comes to cooking, entertaining, and decorating. Cooking and decorating enthusiasts will also enjoy the original ideas being presented.

It sounds like just what  a lot of us need these days! To peruse the winter issue, click here.

Stuff We Love Online this Week

While twittering around this week, somehow a Poppytalk/Paris Hotel tweet exchange led me to Balustrade and Bitters magazine. Wowzah! How did I miss this one? Be sure to check out this month’s interview with Jack Deamer.

When I love a blog/online magazine a lot, I start clicking around on the ads just to help them out. However, the ad for Colleen & Company led me to all kinds of fantastic, glamorous things, my favorite being these scrumptiously dreamy watercolors by Victoria Molinelli. Everything about them reminds me of two of my favorite blogs, The Peak of Chic and Style Court.

Does anyone know who did these rooms? If I had to guess, I’d say Billy Baldwin or Albert Hadley. I’m sure that green sectional room is some iconic design and I should be embarrassed not to be able identify it. However, life’s too short. Anyone know?
