The October issue of Elle Decor is an especially juicy one that features the homes of some fashion industry leaders such as Ralph Lauren, Frederic Fekkai and Jeanine Lobell, whose living room is featured in the above photo (by William Waldron).
The Lobell/Edwards residence is full of light, style and verve and the best part: they show a LOT of rooms, which is something you don't often see when a magazine does a spread on someone's home. Designer Rafael Cardenas really infused their living environment with joi de vivre.....check it out for yourself on the newsstand or online here.


Ok, I am well aware that these photos of Aerin Lauder's Hamptons home from the current issue of Elle Decor have already been well-circulated across the web. I cannot help it, though. Her style is just so appealing and fresh that I had to post it yet once again. I admire her knack for mixing traditionalism with unexpected color and details, warding off the stodge factor completely. The pool/poolhouse is the picture of refined refreshment and the breakfast nook and banquette with kid's art and chippendale bamboo chairs....what can I say? Perfect! American style at it's best!
