Readers Projects is a regular feature and I would love if you please send me photos of your rooms or your work to post and share (email firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Living Room of Jenny Andrews of My favorite and My Best
This is Jenny's small style packed living room. White slipcover - check. Cowhide rug - check. Craigslist score - check. Vintage accents - check. Interesting art work -check. I spy a Suzani!
The Suzani in Jenny's house is draped on a table under the flat screen TV. She said it came from a sale at Anthropologie.
Next we have Carla Sue Fox, a reader who makes gorgeous one-of-kind jewelry.
Carla began her interest in jewelry design and creation after inheriting her grandmother’s collection of vintage and antique jewelry. Because so many pieces were unwearable, either because they were broken or simply too large, she started experimenting with using these pieces in her new designs.
Her first love is and always will be interior design. However, being in the interior design industry has brought a focused eye to her jewelry designing process.
Using those same principles of design, Carla creates one of a kind wearable art using semi-precious gemstones, sterling silver, fresh water pearls and beads, and incorporating vintage components. Contact her by e-mail: email@example.com
On a completely different topic: I have it from a very good source that Dwell Magazine is on the verge of shutting down.
And hang onto your wig hair! The same reputable source alleged that Elle Decor won't last the year.
Don't scream at me. Of course I can't tell you who told me, but believe me, it is someone who knows. We'll just have to wait and see (and save our precious issues!).
