Today, I want to talk about the latest issue of Lonny. Specifically this marbled paper bathroom by Nicki Clendening. Now, as you know, I don't typically break down Lonny, or any magazine really. I figure enough people do that, and for me to do it, well, would just be redundant. I am not really about redundancy 'round here. However, I do feel this space deserves a little pub and I'm gonna give it.
I have actually seen others' critiques of this tiny bathroom with a punch, and was crazy surprised, that they were as mixed as they were. This space was far and away, the one that made the biggest impression on me (although most of the other features in August's issue were pretty strong too.) But, this...this was just brilliance.
Yes, I know, cheap Home Depot vanity, light, and mirror (the complaints I read elsewhere.) But, people, it's a rental (if I remember right.) You can't just go ripping out vanities and mirrors when your renting. You can however, do the best with what you have. And boy, did Nicki deliver. I actually even like the fact that the paper doesn't match up. It reminds me of one of those decorative boxes covered in tiles of marble, or bone, or whatever. It give such a lovely effect. It is definitely making me want to literally do the exact same thing to my bath. I'm all about originality, but I'd be willing to be a copycat in this case.
So what are your thoughts? Does it strike you the same way as it does me? Or, are you one the the peeps that just doesn't feel it?
