What an idiot! At least I Admit It.

The other night I was breezing through the grocery store and stopped at the magazine section, which is a rare occurrence for me these days.  Ever since www.Zinio.com – the digital magazine company – started selling issues online, I subscribe to as many design magazines that are available via the computer.  It’s so easy!   The magazine comes directly to your laptop and stays there – no more mailing in subscriptions or schlepping across town to a book store.   And best of all – there are no longer enormous piles of old issues staring  at you while taking up precious storage space.  But it’s not all great in Zinioland.   You would think that the digital Zinio issue would arrive to your computer faster than the supermarket racks, right?   But there it was – the new December issues of House Beautiful and Veranda sitting on the grocery shelves, while Zinio still hasn’t updated my computer.  I must say that I was so proud of myself when I resisted the overwhelming temptation to buy those two issues anyway instead of waiting for Zinio to update.  But, I digress.  

What really caught my eye that night was the new Architectural Digest.   The cover looked so fresh and so, how do you say…un-Architectural Digest-ish.  I eagerly flipped through it and got all giddy!   Finally!!!!  Architectural Digest is back!!!  There were so many features that looked interesting I could hardly wait to run home and read it.  Wow.  I haven’t said that about an AD issue in years.  In fact, everyone has been so down on the magazine lately, including all three of us on the Skirted Roundtable, that I was eager to spread the word that AD’s new editor Margaret Russell’s touch is really evident.  So many of the houses in this issue look like they could have been in Elle Décor – the magazine that Margaret had headed up during its entirety.

Former Elle Décor Editor Margaret Russell now on tap to head up Architectural Digest.

 

In case you were out of the country earlier this year, the magazine world was rocked when it was announced that Margaret was leaving Elle Décor for AD.  More shakeups was news that domino’s Dana Caponigro was coming to Veranda and Stephen Drucker was leaving House Beautiful for Town & Country.   Dara and Stephen’s influence on their new magazines has been subtle so far, changes haven’t seemed all that dramatic at either magazine – yet.  But, it’s all perception.  Still, Margaret at AD – wow, now that’s some change.  Looking at December’s issue, the differences are sooo obvious!  I just couldn’t wait to spread the good news.  Like I said - what an idiot!

Luckily before I printed this, I checked the Editor’s Page at Architectural Digest to discover that Margaret Russell hasn’t even taken over yet!  Her first AD issue won’t be until January!!!!   The egg on my face was dripping all over my computer.  All I could think was THANK GOD I checked that Editor’s Page!!!  I had totally forgotten that Margaret wouldn’t be at AD until January – the announcement had been made so many months ago.  I would have blabbed on and on about how WONDERFUL the new AD is because of Margaret Russell.   What a complete idiot!!!   Still, my assumption DOES tell me that the January issue is probably going to be fabulous, because the December is pretty damn good itself. 

 

image

First, there is this house by Stephen Sills that really got me blood pressure up.  Look at those WALLS!!!!  They are burlap!  Pattern painted on burlap!!!!   Can you believe that?!?!   Gorgeous.  And look – wall to wall carpet.   Over stairs – when was the last time you saw that – and how fresh is it?  It looks so warm and inviting.  And those two globes.  The lantern.  The mushroom family.   This is a library for this decade, young and sophisticated.   It’s hard to see but there is a banquette against the shelves on the right.   Notice the fabulous library table – just waiting to be opened and piled up on.    But, those WALLS!!!!!!  Gah!!!

 

 

image

Next, over in London, is this little townhouse by the incomparable Nicholas Haslam.   Owned by two art collectors, they wanted a home, not a cold contemporary museum.   I mean – is that just any painting over the mantel?   It’s a PICASSO!!!!!!!!!!!   I have never seen such a large Picasso handled so casually before.   And I love the color of the paneling – it looks like Iced Coffee.   Notice the chartreuse skirted table next to the fireplace.   The back to back sofas are divided by a console table that also picks up the chartreuse in the painting.  Light pink French chairs.   Total eye candy.   YUMMMMM.  

 

 

image

A closeup view of the fabrics:  I love how Haslam still unashamedly still uses those blowsy English chintz fabrics.  I adore the curtain fabric.  He says this room is in the spirit of Nancy Lancaster and he is so right.   That chair!!!!!

 

 

 

 

image

Then, there is this little guest room in London by Haslam.   Notice the French curve on the alcove.  Is there anything in life prettier than a Louis XV inspired curve?    I love his mix of the two fabrics.   He is wonderful. 

 

 

image

The next beauty is a beach house by Alexa Hampton in Bridgehampton NY.   Another view of what a library for a young family should look like.  Loving the striped rug and pillows.  So casual for a beach house, yet still sophisticated.  Not an easy mix to do right. 

 

 

 

image

Alexa Hampton:  Great kitchen.   But something about this kitchen seemed familiar?   Those chairs with their plaid half slips, the two lanterns.  Seem familiar?

 

 

image

Remember this blog famous kitchen in a showhouse?   The same exact chairs – with the same plaid half slips, similar double lanterns.   But it’s not the same house.   I wonder if the owners were influenced by this picture – or vice versa?

I thoroughly enjoyed this Architectural Digest even though it wasn’t edited by Margaret.  Now,  I can’t wait for her first issue next month.  I am so anxious to see her changes – I wonder what they will be?

 

 

image

And for more idiocy from moi!   Last month, I blasted the new Veranda.  I think I spoke too soon.   The new December/January issue to TO DIE FOR.   The cover story is a house in Houston designed by the incomparable MILES REDD!!!!  YES!!!  This must be the first house in Houston that Miles has done and it’s a stunner.  Look at those rich green walls, with tufted sapphire blue velvet.   That floor!!!   Veranda always has the best photographers and this Miles Redd story was snapped by the world’s best Fritz Von Der Schulenburg.   For once, we can finally see big, huge pictures of Miles’ interiors – bright and clear, every tiny detail visible.   What a rare treat.  

 

 

image

The Miles Redd Houston living room with stripes, icy blues, persimmon accents, chintzes, and a fabulous center table by John Rosselli Antiques.   Is there anyone out there that would or could do a fancy living room like this?   Every room Miles does is so different, so completely original and unique.   What a genius.   And what a coup that Veranda got this house.  

 

 

image

A peek at the Saladino house shown this month in Veranda.   The Master.

 

Also in this issue is a new project by John Saladino – worth the price of the issue alone, and another one by Vicente Wolf.   Stellar issue!  A keeper.   The only ho-hum is the house by Veere Greeney seen a few times before, but it’s such a fabulous project it’s worth the second glance.   Dara – you outdid yourself!!!   I could have cried over this issue!!! Fabulous!!

And a note to Cote de Texas readers:

  2. Dear Joni, I have read and seen enough of your blog to know there is no idiot in the house, only a passionate worthy reporter. Thanks for the great visuals and topical updates. Come visit me sometime.

  3. What an adorable idiot! Mmmmmhhh is it possible that some changes occurred already in AD? or the transition between Rensen and Russell will occur overnight? In any case it is refreshing to know we can now buy AD again! Thanks Joni.

  5. I love anything Haslam does. This one especially!

  6. I loved this post! Haslam is one of my favorites, and last month Miles Redd came to Birmingham and entertained us at the Botanical Gardens Antique show. We saw pictures of this house, among others, and he chuckled about those pagoda curtains. But they work! I love his use of color.

  9. Don't beat yourself up. Let the blog world do that. But in regards to AD I thought the same when I got my issue at home this week. But I too looked for a welcoming page for the new editor and noticed only that Noland was still listed as emeritus editor in chief sans the usual photo.
    At any rate, change is usually always good. Just like it will be for the coaching staff in Dallas. Sorry wrong blog. :)

  11. I find it very refreshing when editors move from magazines to magazines. It forces them to bring a new point of view which for the readers is such a plus.
    Love the burlap walls...

  13. You are so funny! LOL!

    I am in love with "Town and Country" since the former HB editor moved over there. He's done a fantastic job with it. I will have to check out these two issuse you mentioned because I still buy magazines and hoard them. ;-)

    Who won Harrison's print, Joni? Did you say, and I missed it? Congrats to the winner!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  14. I've been wondering about Zinio. Living down here in Brazil puts me a good two weeks behind the curve on any new issues. Sad, sad, SAD! You've sold me on the service (now, to get the Hubster to buy me an iPad to read with!)

    ReplyDelete
  15. ...this makes me so happy!(...not the idea you think you were an idiot...that could never be with our joni)...but the truly truly beautiful design in all these spaces...the london townhouse is to die for...absolute perfection...

  16. LOVE the new header! I guess everyone is getting a new look these days. What a detective you are Nancy Drew...I am waiting patiently for the mystery of those kitchen chairs to be solved. xxx

  17. I've loved AD magazine off and on over the years and I'm hoping that Margaret Russell makes it a little more people friendly then it being so far out of our reach. Lately I've had this thing for tufted anything, love it but I haven't been able to get around the husband on it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi there- thank you for this funny post- loved it!The Miled Redd Interior in Veranda with the striped black and white decor is VERY Cecil Beaton- his black and white racing crowd design for My Fair Lady - love it .

    ReplyDelete
  19. Funny, but even if you had posted that error, I say, the only people who don't make mistakes are those who don't DO ANYTHING! ...and that, in itself, is the biggest mistake of all!
    Keep up the good work. You have an amazing blog and I really enjoy reading it!

  20. Can totally relate to this post - just by the new AD cover alone, I would have assumed Margaret was working her magic. ADORE the Haslam guest bedroom! And Dara is indeed doing wonders at Veranda. I'll tell you a little secret - in researching one of my recent posts, I wanted to include a fabulous project but was asked by the "creator" to please not include it because it was just shot for Veranda and they didn't want to preempt the article. So - let me promise you there are fabulous things in store there!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Don't beat yourself up too much. There is a very faint line between idiot and genius -- Picasso is a good case in point. People who worry about being idiots never do anything fabulous! And you have such grace and humility, telling the whole world about your "oops" when you could easily have rewritten this post before publishing and none of us would have been the wiser.

    I love seeing actual BOOKS in these libraries, not faux books or books-by-the-yard color-coordinated to the drapery fabrics, or backwards books etc. The patterned burlap walls are really interesting, too. Lee Jofa has a seagrass wallcovering in their Soprano collection with a metallic gold pattern that I used in a coffered ceiling recently. Now, looking at that library, I'm thinking about the different kinds of effects that could be achieved with textured wallcoverings and decorative painting -- a subtle, barely-there broken damask pattern over burlap or seagrass, in exactly the unexpected color combination I need, is just a phone call to my decorative painter away! :-)

    I agree; Architectural Digest is unrecognizable -- in a good way! Maybe everyone at AD is freaked out about the impending leadership change and they did the December issue with that in mind, trying to anticipate what Margaret would want for job security? Either way, I love it -- I'm renewing my subscription!

    By the way, I was too late for your giveaway, but I think it is SO COOL that you did a giveaway on Harrison Howard's artwork. I bought four of his prints for myself, I know this is a resource I will use for client projects in the future, and I probably would never have found him if it wasn't for you. It is so generous of you to use this platform to support the work of others. Thank you!

  22. Are you familiar with Lisa Luby Ryan who also had a client's house in this month's Veranda? It is a small 1600 sq. foot house designed by Ryan and then decorated for the holidays. She has a shop in Dallas called Vintage Living.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I just love that living room by Haslam...totally taken with the colors, so soft. The drapery fabric is my favorite! Recently I asked a sales girl how much chintz is being sold in their (local large) fabric shop and was almost laughed right out of the store. Thanks for not making me feel so silly for the things I adore!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Joni, thank you for yet another amazing post. This one tops them all. Such great photos, so much detail!

    ReplyDelete
  25. If it makes you feel any better I have a subscription to AD and mine isn't here yet. Now you've got me wanting to run to the store to pick up a copy....I must resist!

  26. Can't wait to see the new AD. Didn't make it to the P O Box this weekend. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous images.
    Have a great week, Joni.

  28. I can't believe it - an issue of AD that I would actually spend longer than 3 minutes flipping thru the pages and pitching in the bin. Our realtor has given us AD as a gift for the past 4 years. It was always museum like houses with no appeal or soul. I can't believe it has taken them this long to realize they have been way off the mark. Congrats to Margaret!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Joni, I am going to check out the online magazines...... hmmmmm....it's hard to imagine not actually holding the magazine.
    I'll try it with AD and see.
    Now, WHO won the givaway!! I also missed who won MY mirror last time ha ha!
    Great post belle dame!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just picked copies of those two mags. last night and had exactly the same reaction (and I checked for the editors, also): over the top fabulous with a richness and design scope that we have not seen in a long time. Great post.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great post... I will now go back and actually read the magazine that has been sitting there next to my bed since it arrived - I opened it - started looking for the editor's page and fell asleep - never opened it again! I will now go back and enjoy the pages. Thanks for the preview!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi Joni, I haven't bought a copy of Architectural Digest in over a year. I hope Margaret brings some life back to the magazine. Thanks for sharing these wonderful rooms.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, so much to absorb here. I had a hard time getting past the burlap walls! Looking forward to AD in January--it will be interesting to see how Margaret Russell influences the direction here. Thanks for the tip about online magazines too. I will check it out.

  34. So good to hear I wasn't the only one disappointed with AD over the past few years--in fact, I had cancelled my subscription. Hopefully, with fresh blood, it will once more become my most anticipated magazine each month. I always love your honesty--and we all know you are NOT an idiot! Keep your wonderful blogs coming!

  36. Joni you are too funny, and definitely not an idiot by any means, you just made an excited mistake! I love your enthusiasm over the magazines you read and all the lovely rooms you share with us. I love looking through your well edited eyes!!! Keep up the good work,you never disappoint!!xo Kathysue

    PS when I got my new Veranda I just stood and looked at the cover it is gorgeous, Love Mr. Miles Redd!!

  37. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog but have you redesigned/used a new typeface? I'm so sorry but I've found the latest post really hard to read - or maybe that's just me/my eyes/advanced age!!??

    ReplyDelete
  38. After reading your blog, I signed up for a Zino trial offer but was disappointed when I couldn't copy favorite photos/pages from the online mag. I'm always tearing out pages from my hardcopy mags to save for future reference. So, I guess online mags aren't for "tear 'n save-rs" like me.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh my God - Sills, Haslam, Redd, Hampton, Saladino and Wolf - all my favourite designers! I can hardly wait for these two issues to hit the newsstands here! If subsequent issues of AD are as yummy as this one, I'll definitely be buying it regularly.

    You're definitely not an idiot, Joni! I assumed the same thing as soon as you showed the cover of AD.

  40. Joni,
    Your humble folksiness is approachable and your posts more informative and delicious than ANY of the magazines.The London townhouse is the loveliest room I have seen in years. Thanks for this blog. You are a treasure.When you start your magazine, I'll sign up for a lifetime subscription.

  42. Beautiful pictures and I can't wait to see what they do with AD and Veranda, but it looks as if they are off to a refreshing and gorgeous start.

    Love the Miles Redd hallway but, with apologies to that incredibly talented designer and the owners, those striped curtains in the LR remind me of the Hamburglar at
    McDonald's.

  46. Obviously, the people at AD are working at their peak level right now, so I'll have to go out and see if I can find this issue on the newsstand. I already subscribed--after a ten-year gap--but I won't get my first copy that fast. The new Veranda looks great, too.

    The Haslam room is a knockout, that's for sure, but there's something weird going on in the magazine's photo-editing department. Check out how the Picasso has assimilated part of the paneling & sconce on the right.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I was thinking of emailing you about the latest Veranda issue featuring Miles Redd in Houston.
    The AD looks great I used to subscribe but it was so cold I gave it up. May reconsider it now

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am always shocked, but shouldn't be, how well you draw connections between photos like this. I love it! I also love the lilac floral chintz curtains along side the pink ribbon print french chairs.

  49. Joni-
    Funny post....the AD cover was to die for....real people inhabit this dwelling and inhabit a few other of the houses in this month's AD. Don't you think magazines are getting better all the time? Maybe the internet, in the end, will help the quality since so many more people will be willing to subscribe over the internet and will be begging for quality over quantity.
    NOW...if we can just get Southern Accents back!!!

  50. That's so funny Joni, I did the same exact thing when I saw the AD at the bookstore yesterday.
    haha but I didn't realize that she has not taken over just yet and flipped through it liking what I see.
    I just love real hard versions of magazines,, although I think that the digital are great for blogs for sure, I have a hard time parting with the real thing.

    Have a wonderful week!

  52. You know, I loved the Haslam interiors, but to me Miles Redd has become his own cliche. Those striped curtains were laughable and he repeats so many elements from project to project that he's lost all interest for me.

    I, too, thought AD had finally been pried from Paige Rense's grasp after the ridiculous Rob Lowe issue, which had so many mediocre projects crammed into it, including Lowe's, that I figured she was paying off favors while she still could.

  53. Well, personally I'm glad over your impulsive buy of those awesome mags. I think there's drool on my computer and my nose might have actually touched the screen from looking at those gorgeous rooms. I'm crazy over that kitchen!

    OMG, Joni! I had the exact same reaction. UNTIL...I hit the Cohens' "fantasyland house". Then I knew it couldn't be Margaret Russell's first issue. I'd buy anything featuring a Miles Red interior I must confess. That Stephen Sills house had that stunning library, but the rest seemed off, especially those master bedroom bubble chairs blocking the French doors. Alexa's beachhouse was ho-hum. Can't wait for Margaret's debut issue! Best-

  65. Joni, thanks so much for introducing us to Julie! Because of your blog, I have actually found a beautiful pot rack and, it's a chandelier!!! (I thought I could only have a light fixture, or a potrack with the design of our kitchen) I love, love, love the Sylvia Potrack Chandelier. My husband will be delighted that he can finally hang his beloved pots and I will actually encourage him to do so!

  66. Hello,
    I hope this is where I am supposed to comment about the Chandelier Giveaway because both of these chandeliers are beautiful and I would love have one in my home.
    After looking through all of the lovely Chandeliers Julie Neill Designs has to offer, I have chosen my favorite. The Cinderella Chandelier is beautiful. It is a successful meeting of a whimsical fairy-tale and functional household lighting.
