You're more than welcome Raina. Hope everyone is enjoying it.

This issue literally took my breath away. From the cover through every page I kept thinking "it keeps getting better'. "How is that possible?"

David Clark and his team have done an amazing job with this issue and the accompanying DVD. So much so, that I was compelled to buy a copy even though I subscribe so I could tear one apart to scan and one to keep in mint condition!

Freaking amazing photography. Do you know who is responsible for this visual feast?

Sandy may not know it, but you and I both know that she sent that third image exclusively for me. Mmmmm, crusty! And the contrast with number four is pure perfection.

These images are so Head Over Heels! I'm in love with that chandelier in the 3rd photo -- it looks more like sea glass than crystal.

Karena - Trust me, I would enter that contest in a heartbeat if it wasn't a conflict of interest.

I wonder how one obtains crusty walls? They're gorgeous and remind me somewhat of the "scratched plaster" walls featured in a spread in "Elle Decor" a few months ago by, I think, Vicente Wolf. The textures are so sumptuous, but must be prohibitive to achieve, no? For some reason, I find this so much more luxurious than Gambrel's lacquered walls...

Raina Cox said...

artluvr- I've just received my copy of the magazine and here's the deal-io with the walls:

The house was an old crumbling mess when the current owner bought it. Those are the original layers of paint you see. The owner gently brushed off the flaking bits of paint and then sprayed a light bonding agent on the walls to halt the decay.

That's some shabby chic I can get behind.

artluvr said...

Raina, thanks for the info. First, buy a crumbling manse... ;-)

Oh, and now I'm thinking the scratched plaster walls were John Saladino, not Wolf. But I'm old. I forget things.

Love love love! But I'm now slightly blue since my house doesn't look like that...

If that's not my own personal Barbie Dream House, it's not too far off. I never would have seen this pics anywhere else, so many thanks for the two of you for making it possible.

Gorgeous mix of moody and crisp. The yellow detail looks heave with the darkness of the backdrop in so many images.
.. and that wine rack wall..

I too am swimming in my own drool here.. :)
