Office With a View (and) On the Move

What are your weekend guilty pleasures? Mine? Magazines, Pinterest and Netflix!

This weekend my thoughts were focused on the future… I’m planning to buy a house in the upcoming months! The process has been enlightening thus far as a first-time buyer. I’ve learned that fixer-uppers are surprisingly complicated to finance. I’ve “lost” a house in my ideal location to another buyer (darn). Yet, now I feel even more educated on the process and ready to make a move when the next house comes to market! What fun it will be to decorate and settle in to my first official home.

Through several moves during my college and early career years, I have managed to hoard my favorite magazine of all time: Domino! Discovering this fab mag back in 2005, I loved Domino so much I kept nearly every issue. When it was shuttered back in early 2009, my heart dropped. Imagine the excitement of nostalgic lovers like me when Domino relaunched in 2013 with a web and quarterly print presence.

Digging through past and present spring/summer issues (far left was the very first issue of Domino and far right is the current quarterly issue), I’m getting inspired for my upcoming decorating projects (and future travels, too). A few of my favorites : :

Looking forward to sharing upcoming adventures with you!

Lonny Magazine

Did you read Domino Magazine back in the day (as in over the last few years)? If you did, you were probably crushed like me when Condé Nast pulled the plug on our fav. magazine (Why Condé Nast, Why?!?). Sad day. So when I heard about a new-ish shelter magazine that was supposedly similar to Domino, I was anxious to check it out. And let me just say– Oh.My.Goodness., Lonny is amazing! Friends, meet Lonny magazine!

Lonny Magazine

The awesome team at Lonny is filling the shelter magazine void by offering a gorgeous online magazine chock-full of fun finds and accessible design. *After doing a little searching, it’s all clear to me now: Lonny is the fabulous creation of former Domino staffers including Michelle Adams, former Domino Market Editor and Patrick Cline, former Domino Photographer.  So what is Lonny, exactly? Well, you will have to find out for yourself. But here’s a little snippet from Lonny:

“At Lonny, we value independent thinking and believe not in following trends but rather in making choices that lead to happiness. We believe that good design and affordable design can coexist and that true inspiration can be found in the teeniest of homes or in the grandest of spaces.”

To that, I say preach on! We’ve missed you so, Domin- oh, I mean Lonny. :) Plus, right now Lonny magazine is free, and it’s online. So no excuse for not reading it, friends! Now what do you think of Lonny? What magazines are you loving?
