Rubie Green in Traditional Home

Photo: Squire Fox
For the past few weeks I've been stalking my favorite newsstand, hunting for the November issue of Traditional Home. So I'm pleased to say that it has arrived, and I'm confident that designer Lizzie Bailey will completely blow you away with her green bedroom designed for the Hampton Designer Showhouse! (See my previous post here). I finally had the chance to meet Lizzie in person at my Rubie Green party, and let's just say I think I have a style crush ;) (Need. that. faux. leopard. coat!!)

(let's pretend I'm standing up straight in this photo...)

Rubie Green party at Calypso Home

Hello all! I wanted to share some pics from my recent Rubie Green event at Calypso Home in Soho! Our favorite gals Melissa and Angela from Ruby Press were in town for a week so we hosted an eco-friendly soirée for editors, bloggers and designers complete with organic wines and goodies. We also previewed some new Rubie Green pillows and small bags as well as our new colorways which will be available in the next couple months! I'll be sure to keep you posted, but for now please take a sneak peek below ;)

Calling all interns!

Ok so I admit: I can't stop thinking about work while on vacation! But I'm excited to let you all know that I'm looking for a new Rubie Green intern and will be interviewing candidates when I return! Ideally I'd love to work with somebody who is passionate about design, and excited to learn and help with everything from the mundane stuff (mailing swatches, running errands etc.) to the more exciting tasks such as helping out on photo shoots and design work! Knowledge in photoshop/illustrator for textile design is a definite plus, as is a great sense of humor ;) The position will be unpaid (sorry :( but you'll learn a lot and will be introduced to a ton of great contacts!) and I'm looking for somebody who can work at least three days per week. So if you have any interest or questions, please email me at

Lonny goes to Paris!

Bonjour! After a busy week of party planning and Lonny production, Patrick and I decided to sneak off to Paris for a bit of r&r and photography ;) Hard at work on issue number two, we're excited to share with you our travel style guide as well as some spectacular Parisian interiors! At the moment it's pouring rain so I'm curled up in my hotel bed eating macaroons (seriously. can't. stop. myself!) and daydreaming about tomorrow when it's sunny and we can rent bikes...

For the record

Over the past few months as word of Lonny has spread, kind bloggers and journalists worldwide have given me some very amazing, but very undeserved titles in reference to my former position at domino. As I've stated in interviews and here on my blog, I was the low man on the totem pole, a "market assistant," working under senior market editors Kate Townsend and Tori Mellott. At first I giggled when articles popped up stating that I was the former "market editor" or "stylist" and even once calling me the "marketING editor" (um, what the heck is that?!) but as these titles begin to appear on more and more sites I just want to make it clear that I was the little guy, and I'm damn proud of it ;)

Entertaining with eco-style

In the midst of all things Lonny, I have also been working with my favorite gals over at Ruby Press to host an eco-soiree for Rubie Green! We've partnered up with Calypso Home to offer a night of stylish eco-tips, organic wines, shopping and some killer eco-friendly gift bags ;) If you'd like to join us next Tuesday, October 13th, simply stop by coco + kelley and let us know your favorite tips on decorating and entertaining with both style and the environment in mind! We've got seven tickets to give away to our favorite eco gals (and dudes) so I hope to see you there ;)

Thank you

Well hello blogging buddies! It has officially been one week since the launch of Lonny, and I think it's a grand understatement to say that our team is floored. The past week has been one of the most exciting (and admittedly exhausting) weeks of my entire life as we've listened to the incredible outpour of feedback, met with designers, advertisers and press, all of whom are just as excited as us to watch Lonny grow and develop in the following months. In the meantime, I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know how truly thankful we are for your feedback and support. We've heard the good, (and trust me we've heard the bad;), and all in all we are completely blown away with appreciation. Thank you all for taking the time to check out our little project and to let us know your thoughts. Your feedback is essential to our growth, and we hope that we can continue to inspire you in months to come :)
