Just when you thought one of your favorite, glossy paged, simply scrumptious reads couldn’t get any better, IT DID! Today marked the much anticipated launch of TRADhome, the indescribably ingenious “love child” of Traditional Home and Lonny.
With mother keeping an eye on the littles, I spent the late afternoon luxuriating in the all-original content gracing the pages of this hip new on-line rag. The pages are pure eye candy, presenting traditional design though a fresh, chic lens, and featuring iconic designers from the likes of the drool worthy Dorothy Draper to mod man Jonathan Adler.

She sweetly inscribed the front cover and thoughtfully listed her own favorite recipes. Over the last nine years, I’ve made all… Read More
I have a crush. A chevron crush. And not the Chevron of the corner gas station variety. Rather, that sassy geometric pattern that’s been seen gracing everything from rugs to my newest Lilly dress. So last week I drew up a template, threw on some lipstick (because I knew it would go over better if… Read More
For years I thought the PCP’s affinity for his bee rain boots was an outlandish attraction unique to my free spirited and ever so strong willed first born. He faithfully donned the darned things day after day, rain or shine, for all sorts of goings-ons. From trying out his new camp chair in the master… Read More
Sister, her mister and baby Bird are headed to Augusta for the Masters to watch a little golf, sip on Arnold Palmers, revel in the azaleas and dine on egg salad and pimento cheese. To an amateur like myself, it would be number one day on my list of days to go. It’s the fun… Read More
