As if you needed traveling to be more enjoyable, imagine hitting the road in one of these cars or with any of these fabulous pieces of luggage. The Mr. Hank and I are off on a spontaneous weekend getaway to Massachusetts to see Mom Dad and the pups. See you all next week! So yesterday I talked about how floored I was when I saw this spread in House Beautiful, but what I failed to mention was how blown away I was with the entire issue. It was hands down one of the best issues (out any of the magazines) I've received in a long time. Usually there are one or two houses I like an others that are either not my style or I just can't relate to the direction they were going, but this issue was fabulous. In particular these other spaces, including these first images that feature another small NY pad with so many bold patterns and colors, not to mention the funky artwork. I could definitely live here
To this 725 square foot one- bedroom Manhattan apartment. No not really but I am salivating over the latest issue of House Beautiful. When I opened it to page 90 and saw this spread it took my breath away. I immediately recognized the kitchen from Kelly Giesen's blog and website but had never seen the rest of the apartment. Everything, and I mean everything, from the millwork to the doors to the bathroom is to die for! See House Beautiful for more pictures of the apartment and the full interview with the talented Kelly Giesen. After my crazy Mad Cow post the other day, one of my girlfriends commented that she didn't think she had ever seen a room with metallic hide accents. I thought about it and she is right, I mean it's not like the Martinique Wallpaper where you can instantly imagine it in a dining room, powder room, or on an accent pillow. In my opinion this look is obviously either not used enough or it's just not being published.
Lately I have been going crazy for metallic hides, so much so that if we had a house I'd probably be tempted to upholster a whole room with metallic hide walls! Insane I know, but I can't get enough of this look. I partially think it's because it reminds me of Aspen. After living in Montana for 4 years and Colorado for 2 the whole Western lifestyle has definitely played a big role in influencing my design aesthetic. Not that Missoula Montana should by any means be ones inspiration for interior decor - yowza ... but you get my drift. To me metallic hides are the perfect mix of the rugged Rocky Mountains paired with a little Manhattan glam, so naturally when I saw these puppies on Joss and Main the other week I snatched them right up!
