I Would Like You To Meet

I love the magazine section at Barnes and Noble.

I love bringing home a big pile of new mags and curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and drooling over the pages.

Unfortunately, so many of the magazines I used to adore have closed their doors this past year.

Like so many of you I have relied on my love of blogs (ok…obsession) to fill the magazine void.

Much cheaper I must confess but I still miss the really amazing decorating mags that are so inspiring.

We are so fortunate to live in a time of blogs, e-zines and other online magazines.

One of my favorites is Lonny.


It is the amazing collaboration of Michelle Adams (formerly with Domino) and photographer Patrick Cline.


It is currently a free online magazine that is as inviting as sitting down with anything else I have seen lately.

It has a smart, clean layout with great glimpses into the design and style of many of my favorite designers.

I also love how they incorporate fashion because I they go hand in hand.


Enjoy your peek and let me know what you think. 


I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    You are so right about the Mags…I absolutely haunt B & N waiting for my ones from England to hit the racks. With the invention of digital readers, my husband reports they think bookstores will be going under in 5 years. Oh Noooo!
    What about the delicous paper? the smell of the ink? the adventure of finding them in the store? Thanks for sharing this blog; I’ll scavenge around it as I make myself late for work yet again!

    I, too, love to lurk in the magazine section of bookstores:) The internet is a wonderful, fun tool…but it’s sad to see some great magazines & newspapers go out of circulation. The online mags are fine; but, I prefer the smell & feel of the real thing:)

    I’m not gonna lie, at first I wasn’t impressed but then I got to the Cath Kidston article and began to think it was a little better, next Rachel Ashwell I was sold. Great magazine! I will be waiting for the next issue 🙂

    Here I thought I was the only one, Jeanne! I am missing my old magazines so much but I love what I can find on the internet and feel like it opens new worlds all the time! This site looks great. I am going to go check it out. My list of favorites is getting very long!

    Hi Jeanne,
    Dream Bathroom, fun fashion, and love the inspiration of all the framed photos and art on the sofa wall… WOW! inspiration.
    Love Barns & Noble, my favorite pass time!!

    Funny, I received
    my e-mail that the
    new Lonny was out,
    but I didn’t open
    it until yesterday,
    when I needed a little
    pick me up! It IS
    gorgeous and, most
    probably, the wave
    of the future….
    Still, I’m going to
    miss dog-earing corners
    and ripping out my
    inspiration from mags!
    xx Suzanne

    Oh, I love magazines too…much too much in fact. I hate thinking about how much I spend on them. I’ll have to check out Lonny. The magazine I really miss is Cottage Living. I’m always looking for something to fill its void 🙂
