If the reason the Elle Decor folks created their showhouse in San Francisco‘s St. Francis Woods was to create buzz around the magazine and get people excited about interior design, it totally worked for me. I am now obsessed with Elle Decor. Since the demise of Domino, I had lost some enthusiasm for shelter magazines. But all that’s behind me now and I’ve renewed my Elle Decor subscription. The cover in particular is just stunning. That lucite side table got me thinking of the lucite cuff I saw during the Bazaar magazine accessories bazaar. And the velvet stools got me thinking about a velvet blazer I have in my closet. And the toile print reminded me of a lace dress. And then I remembered the Domino’s “Turn this dress into a room” feature. And then this is happened — kind of a reverse interpretation. OK I’m totally not unique, the have been other homages! Still, totally fun and I think this will be a new regular feature on Stylenik.
