Introducing the new Rue...

Every now and then one of my genius girlfriends in this industry has a great idea and makes it happen. So beyond excited for my girls over at Rue, who have launched the new chic site Rue Daily
I think the site looks fab and clean. Rue Daily will be a constant source for new ideas and inspiration. Including fabulously done office spaces, my favorite, and round ups of the best store picks in home decor. I am beyond thrilled to welcome the new site and even more excited to give you guys a peek. 

STYLISH IN SEATTLE {rue magazine may/june}

I am so beyond excited about the new issue of Rue...its really good! I am especially fond of the home features this issue, my girl Cassandra (of Coco + Kelley) finally unveiled her decorating + styling skills. Her Seattle apartment is oh so cute and totally her. I just love seeing where people live and how they decorate, it really lets you in on a person's true personality. I think thats why I have such a love for decorating and design...

 Cass is so good at styling and putting vignettes together! I love the way the photographer really captured her aesthetic. 

 Don't we all have a love for this Zgallerie chandelier? Hello aqua!

What I love about Rue Issue 3

I truly love Virgin America for the fact that I can browse the internet on the airplane. I've had so much time to devour the latest issue of Rue and I love it! My favorite spread...
Nicole Cohen's fabulous NYC apartment. So incredibly gorgeous, I am obsessed! 
Her blog, sketch42, has always been one of my favorites. She is fab + a longtime blogging friend of I could love it most because I am just a teensy bit proud of her. (and jealous!)

I also am in loving these other lovely images, which I keep going back to...

I am so all about glamour these days. The gold and luxurious items are quickly becoming my obsessions. This office space is no exception of my over the top style adoration. I mean, come on, I would not expect less the glam perfection from Rue issue #2, am I right?
and of course I heart my girl Kelley and her fab style, too!
bravo ladies.
