Trad Home!

Trad Home, a collaboration between Lonny and Traditional Home has launched. And it's everything I think "new traditional" should be!

Trad Home Issue 1 a

Trad Home Issue 1 b

Trad Home Issue 1 c

The first issue featured 20 designers (seriously!) with updated traditional spaces. And each designer gave tips for how to create the look you see in the mag. Some of them are quirky...

Trad Home Issue 1 d

(Totally LOVE that, by the way)

Trad Home Issue 1 e

Some of them are collected....

Trad Home Issue 1 f

(I love the these garden benches with the round table. Unexpected, but totally works!)

Trad Home Issue 1 g

Some are quite modern with more traditional elements thrown in...

Trad Home Issue 1 h

Trad Home Issue 1 i

And some are full of great textures...

Trad Home Issue 1 j

Trad Home Issue 1 k

Now, it may seem like I've given away a lot of the mag, but y'all - at 347 pages, this issue is "thick." And the writing ain't bad either. I usually don't read articles in design magazines (or almost any magazine), but I actually stopped and read some of these - like "10 Things my Mother Told Me," "Meet Sibella Court," and "Design on a Grand Scale" about Dorothy Draper. This is definitely worth checking out if you haven't already. Happy reading!
