The cover story for this issue is a Fine Frenzy's, Alison Sudol's vintage abode. I have been a fan of their music for sometime, but sent over the edge with the discovery of the the song, You Picked Me. I had it on repeat for two days, before my husband implored me to turn it off.
By far my favorite feature is Nicole Cohen aka Sketch42's UES apartment. I have admired her blog for quite a long time (it was one of the first blogs I read), her candid, tell-it-like-it-is attitude, her abstract artwork, and knack for interiors has been quite an inspiration for me. (And then there is her penchant for watching Real Housewives and providing entertaining and insightful recaps to suck me right in).
She has my two favorite things in her kitchen: carrera marble and Hicks pendant lights.
Her ability to infuse both the masculine and feminine with bold touches of black/dark blue, including her glossy black doors, is so chic and sophisticated. There are so many details to take in (i.e. her ceilings, absolutely gorgeous), I had to go through the feature twice.
Here are some more Rue images to feast on:
