Last weeks Anniversary Issue of Rue was outstanding. The interior spaces in this issue are quite charming. I'm sure you will agree.
Crystal's San Francisco apartment was captured in the issue, and it was overall stunning and romantic with a beautiful dramatic flair. I adore the large mirrored collage in the dining room, lit by a uniquely designed wooden chandelier. Using gray in most of the rooms was such a bold move which enriches the overall feel and invitation of appearance in this incredibly styled home for the editor in chief herself.
Designers of id 810 Design Group, Virginia Toledo and Jessica Gellar, completely took over the task of designing a bachelor pad, with a grandiose ability, I might add. The green accent wall was a fascinating choice, with candles burning so richly against it. The furniture, the lighting, the accents...all made for a smashing young fellow.
Interior designer, Leah Ball Steen, brings a mix of patterns and colors into her historic home. I love how the kitchen and living room are adjacent to each other with no barrier between the two. The transition is indeed complimentary. Take a look at the wallpaper on the back wall of the kitchen. What a fun addition! Interesting fact: the kitchen island was a candy-making table from Michigan in the 1960's. I love the vintage appeal in this cozy, unforgettable home.
Did you find any other spreads of the magazine to be equally appealing?
