Homes & Antiques thinks me rude and wonderful


My brilliant fellow snarkmeister Meg Fairfax Fielding of Pigtown Design just sent me word that British magazine Homes & Antiques, the font of all things chippy and beautiful, named La Lamp Shade to its 50 Best Blogs of 2012!

Ranked 22nd (not too shabby, uh, chic) and listed under "A Little Bit of Everything," H&A describes LS thusly: "Denver interior designer Raina Cox offers an amusing, sarcastic (and sometimes downright rude) take on interiors matters. White subway tiles; zebra-skin rugs and artfully arranged throws drive her 'absolutely crazypants'." 

What - me rude? NEVER!

Wait - You don't like artfully arranged throws??!
Yay! They get it! Congrats.

Lausi said...

You? Rude? What gave her that idea ;)

Goes to show, Raina, your brilliance has "crossed the ocean" :)))))

Congrats!

Snarky? Yes. Irreverent? Yes. But rude? I don't think so!

That is very cool - congratulations!

You definitely write the things that most of us think, but are not brave enough to actually say.

Recognition of your "crazypants" behaviour emerged from across the pond...from foreigners...? U.S. press lags behind, so sorry, but congratulations, Raina (as I lounge, and chew loudly, on my FREE CL zebra rug).

Glad they recognize a Yank who speaks the truth! Time for the US shelter press to take note.

Raina Cox said...

Thank you all so much! I wouldn't be nominated for squat without you lovely people reading my missives.

Squeak - It amazes me how many people equate dissent with threat.

Margaret - The post they're referring to is ancient. I've come around on subway tiles and zebra rugs (as long they're real and not cows in drag). But I still hold artfully arranged throws in contempt.

Congrats. (As she artfully ditches the throw under the bed.)
