The second issue of Rue Magazine was released on Monday, and the Rue girls really knocked it out of the park with this one. Like the last issue, the Gift Guides are killer good (I mean it. So good. I'll have to post about them later next week), and the entire issue is just shy of 300 pages!
But, hands down, my favorite feature was this Orange County home designed by the Domicile ID team, Amanda Malson and Jolene Ballard. (As a girl with roots in Orange County, I couldn't be more proud!)
The exceptional use of color (those pink drapes!) and the mix of high & low-end pieces make this space seem effortlessly chic. This living room in particular is sophisticated yet welcoming... and to me, it feels really retro. In a modern way. I love it.
love the vintage pair of brass partridges.
can you believe that those side tables are a Craigslist find? The girls painted them gold!
the white desk is actually an Ikea dining table!
The desk chair is a vintage find, reupholstered in that fabulous velvet.
And I love the upholstered parsons stool with yellow piping.
lovely lucite desk tray.
love the natural linen drapes against that navy wall!
