Introducing: Lonny

Photo: Patrick Cline for Lonny
For the past twelve months photographer Patrick Cline and I have been working on our latest collaboration, and tonight we couldn't be more thrilled to finally share it with you! I met Patrick in 2007 at the chintz shoot for domino magazine, and we have since partnered up as a photography and styling duo. Having lived in both London and New York, Patrick and I are constantly inspired by our surroundings and our photography is a reflection of the diversity we've encountered. From pristine beaches in the Hamptons to graffiti covered buildings in Brooklyn, we proudly introduce Lonny.

Since I'm a fan of all things equestrian, the Lonny horse photos are some of my absolute favorites to frame. I have the three prints above in my apartment, and they feel very Jackie O and Kelly Klein inspired.Photo: William Waldron. Kelly Klein's living room as seen in Elle Decor via Habitually Chic

One of Patrick's favorites is titled Sea, and he recently framed it in his newly painted bedroom. He chose a chocolate brown paint by Ralph Lauren called Crosby for his walls, and the contrasting white frames with his photography look incredibly chic.

Since I am a fan of contrast, I love the idea of pairing this photo with slightly stuffier decor. I imagine it in a thin black frame leaning on top of a vanity, surrounded by pretty glass perfume bottles and bowls of sparkling costume jewelry. Or perhaps in a small lucite frame on top of a stack of books ;) Below are some more Lonny prints I'd love to frame, followed by some of my favorite ways to display photography.

I'm so excited to finally see these images. They are so beautiful. You and Patrick make a great pair. There are so many shots I want. I need to start saving my pennies to make one a part of my collection.

I love the first shot with the feet. You had me right away!
