Eight months after saying good-bye city, hello country, here are the pictures you’ve been waiting for! At long last Lonny,
the new online magazine from Michelle Adams and partner Patrick Cline
is finally live, and we’re thrilled our farmhouse is a part of it!
Even in the good days, the magazine world was smaller than you might
think. Press events felt like reunions, where editors would get
together for drinks, throw competition to the wind, and…well…you
know the rest. Back then, Michelle was at Domino, while I was at
Martha. Flash forward a few years, and there’s a new title in
town—Lonny, named after dual design meccas London and New York. Now
here’s a no-holds-barred magazine for the times: 200 or so pages of
online eye candy packed with ideas and inspiration. In a way, it’s Domino
reincarnate and, judging from the clamor, it’s exactly what we need.
It seems like ages ago that Michelle and Patrick came up to the country
to shoot for the day. Summer had just begun, the lettuces I’d planted
small but firm—perfect for a light lunch on the porch, one of our very first of the season. At that point, Lonny was still very much a work in
progress, an idea hatched out of the void Domino and others left behind. What it
would become Jaithan and I weren’t quite sure (a feeling all too
familiar), but the company we’d keep (Deborah, Grace, among others) was
reason enough to open our doors—and our lives—to Lonny. Enjoy,
Remember the butler’s pantry before we moved in?
Here’s that dollar-store skirted sink in the making!
A huge thank you to Michelle and Patrick for including us in the premiere issue! Even in close quarters…
we managed to get it all done!
Finally, a parting shot more country chic than any other: Michelle, holding a polaroid from the day, moments before they left…
