So, I'm sure many of you were just as much on the edge of your seats for Rue's 6th issue magazine launch as I was! This time more than the the rest of the issue launches! Mainly because this issue contained interior spaces and photo shoots from international grounds. From Rio de Janeiro to Stockholm and even to Iceland. You get a true sense of different cultures' style approaches.
This first shot of the dining room is so charming. It has that library feel with the bookshelves mounted to the wall and is lit by a wonderful cylinder fixture. I am in LOVE with the rustic beam standing in between the dining and living rooms in the middle image. That purple feathered poof is just the perfect touch of eclecticness and charm. And how inviting a tray with fresh flowers, tea and macaroons!
Of course I simply could not resist the console with yet again, eclectic flair and more rustic touches. How fun to use two different lamp stands with the same shade. And the most clever conversation piece: the little tricycle under the table. I would have never thought to park this treasure in a living space. Too precious beyond words!
The highlight of the magazine was this extraordinary and enchanting tablescape with a desert feel.
The wooden and gold vases filled with fuchsia flowers and an assortment of other green and yellow plants were what took the show! A shot of this display was in the running for the cover of the magazine but was voted out by the model below resting on the wicker chair above. It was a beautiful cover, but I was a sucker for the table arrangement. This is the kind of gathering I would want to be invited to!
And to finish it off, a quaint resting area with Moroccan styled pillows and throw, and most importantly, romantic lit candles inside glass votives. The stealer of this show? That adorable, fluffy camel!! They actually rented him for the shoot! Impressive and appropriate, I'd say!
Time to invite friends over, lounge by the pool, light candles and tiki torches and indulge in the summers little thrills of BBQ's and reggae music! (That's my ideal summer party, anyway ;)
There was a feature on how to bring the islands to your very own backyard with luau themed treats and decor.
And there's even available print outs of invites, labels and tags to host your very own Island Escape Party!!
OH, and recipes for those beautiful fruit-iful pops!
Hope you enjoyed Rue Issue #6 as much as I did!
