5280 magazine mention

A heart-felt thank you to Luc Hatlestad and Lindsey B. Koehler of 5280, Denver's city magazine, for selecting La Lamp Shade as one of the Mile High City's must-read blogs. The June issue features 65 of "the very best websites of Denver."

"Raina Cox says she lives, eats, and breathes interior design. After a few minutes perusing her sometimes-personal-but-mainly-design-intensive blog, you'll see what she means. Full of design tips as well as recurring segments like "Daily deliciousness" and drool-worthy images of items you wished you owned, this site is perfect for anyone who loves flirty banter coupled with inspiring design ideas."

*blush*

Thanks so much, 5280!

wonderful, baby. so well-deserved!

I was so happy for you that I squinted all the way thru the review to read it - then I scrolled down and saw the big print -ha!

a quick google check confirmed my suspicions about the '5280' name origin...very cool

great work, gal, so glad that others will now know what we already know.....

Sketch42 said...

AWESOME!!! Doesnt it feel good when you get some recognition?

David said...

We've always known you've got it goin on, nice to see Denver discovering it now as well.

They know what they're talking about....flirty banter and inspiring design ideas is why I come here :) I would add to that sentence: "and a designer who can walk the talk". Wait, is that the right expression?! You know what I mean...you can crank out an end product that gels with what you show here. You know your style and how to achieve it.

Congratulations. Well deserved!

I read that issue on the plane last week and did a little happy dance for you! Afterall, it was your mention in Elle Decor that brought me to La Lamp Shade and then you brought me to the lovely Jamie so thanks again! Congrats!

Raina Cox said...

Keri - Jamie sent me an email late last night congratulating me, and I had no idea what she was talking about. I've just subscribed and was waiting for the issue to arrive in my mailbox.

Needless to say, I was up at the crack of dawn this morning to pick up a copy.
