Lonny Mag

With some of my favorite design magazines such as Domino and House & Garden (U.S.) recently being discontinued I've felt a little empty.  Fortunately, there is a new wave of online magazines becoming available.  If you haven't already, you must check out Lonny magazine! It is a great new resource for design inspiration and best of all, it's free!  One of my favorite features is the embedded links on their images.  If you see an item you like you can simply click it and you will be directed to the vendor's website for purchasing.  The following is a peak into the wonderful world of Lonny:

Let There Be Light

My boyfriend and I will be moving back into my old (bigger & better) apartment next month! For me, moving means another opportunity to express myself through the design of our space.  I have already said my goodbyes to the majority of our furnishings and I cannot wait to have a fresh start!  I have replaced my time previously spent on searching for apartments to searching for new items and accessories to fill our new home.

Today I found myself looking for new bedside lamps.  Currently we only have one and it's not on my side!  Here are a few of my favorites.

This is a bit out of my price range but I have placed it in my "one of these days" file.  I love the organic quality & gourd shape.  I can see it in a fabulous beach house...one of these days...

This lamp from Ikea is a steal at only $19.99.  It is definitely in the running for our new place!

The following three options from Crate & Barrel are modestly priced.
