New Rue

The New Rue is out and after having a coffee and a luxurious browse through their new beautiful issue, I ventured further afield on their site, under Gallery, and discovered photos saved by room! Here are some ideas from their Details page:

Happy Sunday everyone!

Ralph Lauren

A Trad girl's dreamboy, Ralph Lauren, epitomizes style, grace, taste and luxury. But here is no showhome. The pictures below are via the February issue of Architectural Digest. This is RL new store in Manhattan. Everything here would work out magnificently in a very nice home.

First of all, the white marble entrance and staircase flanked by the wrought iron black railing and accented with the iron lantern and black & white artwork are stark, elegant, clean and yet, traditional.

Den for men, I think not! A perfect space for both men & women (I may change the roses to pink!).
Now, it's looking like a shop, but here's the other view of the staircase (note mannequins replace the vase with twigs).

Books are always the best design accessory! 

Not sure what I like the most the ottoman or the dress sitting on it! Hats off Mr Lauren! After all these years, you can still deliver exquisite dreams!
